Head to the Pyrenees – perfect for family ski (or summer) holidays

Ski resorts in the Alps can be expensive and crowded so for a French alternative, why not try the Pyrenees? Here we have some suggestions for resorts that are both superb for skiing, yet are vibrant all year.

Like walking, hiking, cycling or watching the Tour de France?  They have it all: mountain biking, golf, water activities (rivers and lakes to swim in, rafting etc), horse riding too. Check out Le Mourtis, a pretty small resort popular with families; Superbagneres, the ski resort at Bagneres de Luchon, and a thermal spa town with shops, restaurants, golf and an aerodrome; or Peyragudes,  the most high-tech resort in the Pyrenees. Torn for choice? Have a look at this high-level five…

This great two-bedroom, two-bath apartment comes at a cracking price. Balcony, terrace, terrific views and in between two great ski resorts.

Beautiful chalet with four bedrooms and a private pool close to all sorts of outdoor activities. Was nearly sold but this is a second chance to snap it up – at a lower price.

Fancy a little snow business? Here is your chance, with the opportunity to buy a shop, snack bar, ski hire – or restaurant? The options are countless with this great property that offers at least six bedrooms of owner accommodation.

The perfect project! A partly restored 240 sq m house that oozes opportunity. Only 15 minutes from Bagneres de Luchon, in Burgalays, and little more than £100k.

Thinking big? We save the best until last – this is a fabulous 16-bedroom chateau with pool, run as a B&B with gite, over two acres. Located in St Beat, close to golf and ski.
