Béarn offers a friendly, warmhearted welcome. Situated less than an hour from the Basque beaches and the mountains, this region, seamed by rivers and forests is just the place for outdoor activities whether you’re a grown-up or child.
Everything is readily available. Children can use up their energy quite safely whilst their parents relax: swimming in a freshwater lake surrounded by fine sand, paddling a canoe on the "gave" (the local name for a river), picnicking to the backdrop of the Pyrénées...
In the Cœur de Béarn,you can take time out to try local gourmet products. For your stay you have a wide choice between say, a family gîte offering you free run of a house , bed-and-breakfast or refreshingly unusual accommodation.
The Cœur de Béarn reveals itself in its byways, small pleasures and delightful discoveries.
