A town of considerable Gascon charm

The market town of Lannemezan, despite its industrial centre (now much reduced) is a rural market town of considerable charm. Set in lovely Gascon countryside, the town today is a thriving modern place to live. It offers all everyday amenities and necessities such as banks, supermarkets and health services, but it is also a place where history and tradition are important.

Lannemezan's Farmers Market

There is a very well attended Farmers Market, and if you are in town on market day, you will find this a colourful and vibrant experience well worth getting out of bed to enjoy.

In the foothills of the Pyrénées

The town lies at the foot of the highest mountains in the French Pyrénées, which means that for dramatic scenery you really don't have to travel far! The Pyrenean mountain range includes some of the most beautiful scenery in France, perhaps even in Europe, and Lannemezan makes an excellent base for further exploration of this wonderful region.

A Gascon gastronomy… think duck!

The Gascon region is justly famed for its simple but rich gastronomy. Think duck, duck and more duck… dishes to try include confit of duck, Foie Gras (duck liver), and a cassoulet… with, you guessed it, duck! It sounds a little predictable, but it certainly is delicious. Lannemezan has a good choice of restaurants in which you can enjoy a friendly rural ambience as well as the delicious food and wine.

A skiing rival to the Alps

Lannemezan could prove to be very interesting to keen skiers. Lannemezan is less than an hour away from some great slopes. The ski stations of La Mongie, St Lary, Bagnere de Bigorre and Peyregaude are all within easy reach and offer superb skiing and snowboarding without the monstrous queues for ski lifts that are the bane of the skier's life in the more popular Alpine resorts. Discover the quieter and arguably even more beautiful Pyrenean resorts, and your life may change for ever! Well, for the winter anyway!

And for non skiers…

There is still plenty on offer in and around town for non skiers. Walking or horse-riding are sports well suited to the mountain terrain, and highly enjoyable ways of discovering the countryside. You may like to make a religious pilgrimage to Lourdes, or explore the numerous caves and grottos which stud the hillsides. Spa towns abound in the area, and you can take the waters or enjoy a treatment or two, just as the Victorians did.

How to get there

Pau is the nearest airport, at just one hour away from Lannemezan. It has direct flights from the UK with Ryanair, the low cost airline. Toulouse airport offers a greater choice of airline and departure airports, and this is just an hour and a half away from Lannemezan. Toulouse is served by British Airways, bmibaby, easyJet, flybe and bmi. Train travel is also a viable option, as you can travel from Paris to Toulouse by TGV, then catch a local train to Lannemezan.
