Rejuvenate at the Argelès-Gazost spa
Situated in the Hautes-Pyrénées, at an altitude of just 460m, the Argelès-Gazost spa is an ideal place to spend your holidays. In summer and winter, you can discover the most beautiful valleys, nestled in the heart of the most prestigious Pyrenean sites. Among them, the Cirque de Gavarnie, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a true natural wonder. It can be admired from the village of Gavarnie and can be reached on foot or horseback in an hour. Its peaks sometimes exceed 3000m in altitude. It also hides one of the largest waterfalls in Europe! Lourdes, a few minutes from your campsite, with its funicular railway, its lake, its castle and its unmissable Sanctuary is one of the most visited Marian cities in the world. The Pic du Midi de Bigorre - which can be visited - is known, among other things, for the presence at its summit of an astronomical observatory and a television relay. But Argelès-Gazost is above all a spa town which, thanks to its mild climate and its large Gazost spring, has been known for over a century for its water with therapeutic properties.
