About the neighbourhood
One of the hidden gems in southern France, the Valley Aure is surrounded by famous mountains but with many intimate paths, hidden deciduous woods and mountain lakes and streams. The village of Heches is also part of the enchanting Baronnies, reputed to be the inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty fable. The amazing Gourge Asque is known locally as the little Amazon due to the lush green ferns, moss and hanging foliage in this humid micro climate. Renound Pre historic sites such as the nearby Gouffre Esparros and Grottes De Labastide signify the ancient nature of the land. For the wine lovers you can tour the Madiran wine region.
How to get there
Frequent flights to Toulouse with plenty of car hire options. However a car is not required if you take the airport shuttle to Toulouse railway station where there is a direct train to Lannamezan and connecting coach service that stops in Heches, 100 metres from the house. There is also a TGV fast train service to Pau, where several daily direct trains to Lannamezan run.Biarritz and Lourdes offer other airport options.If you drive, your take the right fork from the D929 signed Heches Centre, up a small hill,past the Church, you will find our house 50 metres on the right. Look out for the grey courtyard gates and blue front door and shutters.
