Paragliding and hang-gliding are included within the modality of free flight: the sport persons can take off and land using their legs.

Horse-riding, as a modality of green tourism or eco-tourism, is another example of nature leisure.

Cultural Sites: For centuries, the Pyrenees have been a natural and cultural watershed, and the history of the region is every bit as complex and intricate as its to topography. While great empires and cultural movements lapped at the base of the mountains, small pockets could remain unaffected. Individual kingdoms constantly altered shape and influence through local alliances.

The border as we see it today did not become fixed until 1659, with the signing of the Treaty of the Pyrenees. The historical overview aims only to give an outline of important events in France and Spain which had their inevitable effect on the kingdoms of the Pyrenees.

Guestbook comments from the owner
As reviewed on Tripadvisor:



The house, the views, the location, what more can I say. It has everything going for it. you can do as little as you want; relax by the pool, relax indoors, or as much as you want; explore neighbouring villages, walking trails or adventure activities. We did it all on a week stay and came away feeling like we had been here for months. Absolutely magnificent.
