Enter our competition to celebrate Living France’s 30th birthday for your chance to win a walking holiday for two people in the foothills of the Pyrénées with Purely Pyrenees
The Get-Away-From-It-All Pyrenean Break is packed with slow, gentle walks, unspoilt villages, bucolic scenery, superb, authentic accommodation, great regional cuisine – and some more challenging higher altitude walking if that takes your fancy. You can be sure of spectacular panoramic views too, not to mention flora and fauna galore. This really is nature at its very best.
This independent, self-guided four-night holiday with Purely Pyrenees is for two people sharing a twin or double room on a half-board basis and begins in the Azun valley, not far from Lourdes and yet a thousand miles away deep in the tranquil, welcoming heart of the Pyrenean foothills. Its wide, green valley bottom is lightly sprinkled with farmhouses and small villages, its hillsides with oak, chestnut and pine woods, and its higher slopes with wildflower-filled, Alpine-style meadows, while its snow-capped peaks are home to 22 species of birds of prey. It is warm, welcoming and sunny – and great for walking.
Each day you have a choice of routes as comfortable or challenging as you like, taking in charming villages including Arras-en-Lavedan, Salles and Arcizans-Dessus. Each evening you return to your comfortable, high quality, authentic chambres d’hôtes accommodation for a dinner of delicious local food and wine with your welcoming hosts.
The closing date is 19th November 2019
