GATEWAY TO THE PYRENEES NATIONAL PARK

The Val d'Azun

  • 4 saisons
  • Relaxation
  • In nature
  • Sport and thrills

    Located a few minutes from the Argelès-Gazost Valley, the Val d'Azun is one of the gateways to the Pyrenees National Park. Perfect mix between traditions, culture and nature, it is a place where it is good to live and escape. Don't miss visiting the villages of None and Arras-en-Lavedan with their authentic charm with their cobbled streets and stone houses. 

    Activities in all seasons 

    IN EVERY SEASON 

    Not landlocked and strewn with large green plateaus with their fairground barns, the Val d'Azun is a Pyrenean parenthesis where time seems to slow down. Here, nature and the seasons punctuate the life of the locals and set the tempo for summer and winter activities.

    THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE VILLAGES 

    The simplicity and authenticity of the inhabitants create a warm and friendly atmosphere. Inspiring, this land of the Pyrenees National Park is at the same time a refuge, a place of work and an escape for anyone wishing to escape from the daily tumult and return to essential values.

    “What attracts me here is the idea of ​​this valley with beautiful personalities in all the villages. We feel that the people here are anchored to it and care about it but we also feel that people from outside come here and seem to belong there, I really like this mix..."

    Land of pastoralism

    Under the sign of traditional breeding 

    pastoralism is a very old farming method that is based on the interdependent relationship between man, his herd and the land he works. It is an integral part of the history of the Pyrenees and is still today at the heart of daily life in our valleys, particularly in the Val d'Azun. 

    Preservation of traditions 

    Here, farmers work every day to conserve these ancestral traditions through their profession. At the end of winter, the herds roam the low and medium altitude meadows before reaching the high altitude pastures at the start of summer to taste the tender grass there. This is called the mountain pasture. At that time, breeders work tirelessly to harvest hay from the valleys that will feed the animals in the stables and sheepfolds once winter arrives. In the spring, this cycle begins again.

    Val d'Azun-Pyrenees cheese 

    This is how, all year round, the herds are fed thanks to the local resources and can then produce delicious products such as stamped cheese “Val d'Azun - Pyrenees”. From cow, sheep or mixed, these cheeses are above all the fruit of a common will: that of the farmers of the valleys who are keen to promote their territory rich in traditions and know-how through a single identity. To bite into these local products is to taste the best of the Pyrenees.  

    The outdoors in the heart 

    HIKING – TRAIL – CYCLING – SKI – SNOWSHOE 

    It is impossible to sum up the Val d'Azun to a single discipline as its diversity of landscapes offers so many possibilities. If it is rather obvious that hikers will find shoes at their feet here, trailers, skiers and cyclists will not be left out!  

    By running or on two wheels  

    By bike, the passes of soulor, de Courageous or ofAubisque will be exhilarating challenges to follow in the footsteps of the biggest names in Tour cycling. While running, the many trails that crisscross the reliefs, ranging from initiation to vertical kilometer, will be an opportunity to exceed your limits in an exceptional setting.

    The Val d'Azun in winter 

    In winter, when the herds retire to the barns and give way to large expanses of snow, theVal d'Azun Nordic Area opens the doors to a multitude of activities: snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, sledding...

    Unusual outings 

    For outings on foot or on snowshoes, we alternate between lakes with a thousand reflections, forests, plateaus and peaks on the most beautiful paths in the Pyrenees national Park. And in summer, you can also take advantage of outings on electric scooters and zip-line descents at Soulor to discover new, more unusual facets of the Val d'Azun! 

    Zoom on

    Arras-en-Lavedan, village of Artitude 

    In Arras, art meets nature and is an integral part of the local heritage. This territory has inspired many artists caught up in the special atmosphere of the place. When you walk through the streets, you come across various sculptures inspired by local history and legends. The Maison des Arts located in the village allows you to extend artistic discovery through exhibitions.
