A superb way to see ( or at least get an impression of ) the Pyrenees, whilst strolling with the magnificent buildings of this most prestiguous area behind you. I started walking from the château and stopped for a glass of wine at the first...More

Great way to experience the beauty of Pau’s surrounding areas. The Pyrenees are only an hour away, but you can see them from the centre of the city!

Pau is a charming/quiet city near the France/Spain border and all the wonderful places in the Pyrenees and along the coast of Spain below the Pyrenees, especially San Sebastion. It makes a good starting point to explore the area of the Pyrenees.

Driving and Parking in Pau (1 Replies)
We wish to sop off in Pau for a few hours en route to Louurdes coming from the Bayone direction. As this will be my first day driving on the continent (I'll be driving on the oposite side of the road to what I'm used to) I'm a bit apprehensive about driving into Pau. Coming off the A64, is it reasonably straight forward to get to Boulevard des Pyrenees? Is parking widely available in the centre of Pau? Is it a difficult town to drive in? Alternatively is there somewhere on the edge...More

I think you best bet for parking in Pau would be the the Place Verdun. It's a large, free parking area just a 5-10 minute walk to the Boulevard des Pyrenees.

It your looking for a good inexpensive eating establishment, I highly recommend "Le Berry". It's just a 2 minute walk from the Boulevard. It's a no reservation...More
