Book your journey in PauFrance
Pau, a lively and cosmopolitan French city
Pau, hometown of the french king Henry the IV
At the feet of the northern side of the Pyrenees, Pau is the main town of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department. Situated on the Gave de Pau river, the city is at the entrance of a path that goes through amazing ranges of mountains.
Birthplace of Henri the IV, king of France and Charles Bernadotte, king of Sweden and Norway, Pau is firmly linked with History.
Hence, it is possible to enjoy the castle, dominating the river, dating back to the 12th century, and transformed until the late 19th century by Napoléon III. From the castle, you follow the Boulevard des Pyrénées, along almost 2 kilometres, and discover the charming old town. There is always a breathtaking view on the Pyrenees when in Pau, and of course many facilities to enjoy a very lively nature.
Hiking, fishing, and kayaking are typical activities one can enjoy at this crossroad between Heaven and Earth.
