Peaks and parks in the pretty and picturesque Pyrenees

Separating the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe, the Pyrenees mountain range in southwest Europe forms a natural border between France and Spain. Stretching for more than 300 miles from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean Sea, the range features national parks and wide-open valleys with plenty of outdoor activities. Idyllic resort towns and bustling cities sit nestled high in the mountains, offering such landmark attractions as historic churches and fortresses. For a unique experience, book a Pyrenees vacation rental in the tiny principality of Andorra, which covers a small portion of the range.

Soak up that mountain air and explore the great outdoors

A Pyrenees vacation rental comes in handy if you're visiting the range's more than 40 ski resorts while trying your hand at such winter sports as alpine skiing and rock climbing. The adventures don't end once the snow melts, however, as summertime in the mountains includes extensive bicycling and cross-country running trails. In fact, there are 3 long-distance footpaths that run the length of the range if you're really looking for a challenge. The Pyrenees also help host 2 of cycling's biggest events, the Tour de France (held annually in July) and the Vuelta a Espana in September.

All aboard! Riding through the Pyrenees in search of fun

Nature lovers will lose themselves in the breathtaking beauty of Aiguestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, including its jagged mountains, rock walls, thick forests, wildflower-covered meadows, and 300-plus glacial lakes and lagoons. Nearby, the Sierra and Canyons of Guara Natural Park features prehistoric cave paintings amidst gorgeous canyons and gorges. A cogwheel train from the town of Ribes de Freser to the ski resort of Vall de Nuria offers sweeping panoramas. Architectural wonders in the region include the Basilica of Lourdes, where sacred waters flow from spigots, and the medieval town of Alquezar, home to a 9th-century citadel.

Change of season: from a winter wonderland to sunny summers

If you book a Pyrenees vacation rental in the winter, get ready for some chilly conditions with temperatures hovering around the high 20s. There's plenty of snow for skiing between December and March, but keep in mind that the western region of the mountains receives more rain and snow than the eastern end. Towns start to thaw out in the spring, meaning the valley floors open up for fishing and golfing. The Pyrenees are custom-made for hiking during the summer, with sunny skies and comfortable daytime highs in the low 70s. Fall brings colorful foliage and mild highs in the 50s.

From goats to glaciers, the Pyrenees have it all

A labyrinth of water flows through the Pyrenees as raging rivers form large waterfalls before spilling out onto the valleys below. Mighty glaciers and hot springs are spotted primarily on the French side of the mountain range, while the far west region is covered in thick woods and the eastern Pyrenees remain more barren. Centuries-old farming communities still dot the scenery both in the mountains and valley floors, many of whom herd cows, sheep, pigs, horses, and chickens. Mountain goats also run wild across the jagged peaks of the Pyrenees.
