Mobile homes in the mountain region of Luz Saint Sauveur, Pyrénées, France
Caravans in the sun is very happy to present a new mountain park situated at 800m altitude in the celebrated picturesque valley in the heart of the French Pyrénees. The park is just 40 minute’s drive from Lourdes and Tarbes-Lourdes airport and a 20 minute walk from the local bus station – from which there is a bus service to Lourdes, airport, and the railway station. The park is just 500m from a shuttle to local ski stations perfect to skiing.
This tranquil family orientated park offers a green and peaceful setting, surrounded by mountains and streams in the heart of Luz Saint Sauveur Valley (the Valley of Light – named for its sunshine). The park is well located at the foot of the Col du Tourmalet – a cycling mecca for both cyclo-tourists and fans of the Tour de France which passes through here every year in July.
The location of the park is perfect for lovers of winter sports as there are 3 nearby ski resorts : – Luz Ardiden (which is easily reached by bus from the bus stop near the park), the domain of the Grand Tourmalet – the largest ski area of the French Pyrennes and the UNESCO World Heritage town of Garvarnie – famous for its beauty and annual festival.
Hiking enthusiasts have a wide choice of routes in the many mountain valleys surrounding the park where there are also many mountain lakes where you can fish for wild trout and salmon. For those who enjoy climbing there are peaks of up to 3000m – all set in this vast national park of the Pyrenees with its protected fauna and flora.
In the summer sheep and cattle can be seen grazing high in the mountains as local farmers still practise transhumance – grazing livestock is driven between the valleys in the winters and the high mountain pastures in summer. Many natural tourist sites are easily accessible on foot or by car: lakes, sites, high mountains, valleys, streams and waterfalls, pasture, rural villages and typical hamlets. Hot mountain springs provide the fitness care for the nearby spa and the famous city of pilgrimage – Lourdes is just 30 minute’s drive from the park. In just half an hour you can reach the resort of Cauterets with its famous thermal springs and Pont d’Espagne (or Bridge of Spain), spectacular south peak overlooking the valley and its observatory – where you can enjoy the wonderful views and also visit the museum and appreciate the astronomical delights of comets, meteors and far off galaxies.
The traditional local village is just a twenty minute walk from the park and has shops, supermarket, swimming pool, sports field, cinema, sports shop, rental companies, restaurants and trade regional products (the region has a rich gastronomic and wine tradition) banks, medical center, pharmacy, dentist, garage and petrol station, a factory of artisan wool, an important historical heritage with the ruins of its medieval castle and fortified church and a weekly well supplied market every Monday.
