Three bedrooms – sleeps 6/8
Bagnères-de-Bigorre is a charming old spa
town in the Pyrénées. Long visited by the French, it sees few foreign visitors.
Perhaps this is why the locals are so friendly! Our apartment is in the heart of the old town
yet is in a beautiful and peaceful location
which includes a shared but private courtyard
garden. The apartment is one of several in a recently refurbished three story building
that was once a hotel. On the first floor there is an open plan living room including a
well-equipped kitchen. The living room opens onto a balcony which overlooks the courtyard.
There is a separate utility room containing a washing machine and dryer. Stairs lead up
from the living room to the three bedrooms (one double, two twins), the bathroom
and the shower room; each of these has a WC.
