Leisure Activities
 

The south west of France is famous for its gourmet food, full-bodied wines and Armagnac.  Fois gras is the local delicacy and you will see numerous farms advertising this.  Local menus usually include fois gras and the price you pay for this delicacy will vary considerably.

 

The whole region is ideal for walkers and many of the towns and villages have listed churches, museums and large country parks.  

 

Mirande, in the heart of Gascony is only a half hour drive from Luby Betmont.  Gascony, famous for "Leno d'Artagnan" one of the three musketeers, has a lot to offer the tourist who enjoys the outdoors and is particularly popular with fishing, horse riding, mountain biking and golfing enthusiasts.  There are many festivals taking place during the year in the region.  Visit the local tourist information office for more details.  The ski resorts of St. Lary-Soulan and Bagneres-De-Luchon are approximately forty-five minutes away, as is the sanctuary at Lourdes. 

 

 
Shopping
 

A Ecomarch� supermarket is approximately five minutes by car from Au Chateau.  Trie sur Ba�se is the nearest village to the house and has a small selection of shops including a very good baker / patisserie, an ironmonger and a local wine shop with a very friendly owner.  The village also has a market which takes place in the square every Tuesday morning.

 

To the west of Luby Betmont is Tarbes, a busy town with an excellent market on Wednesday mornings.  Other nearby towns in the Midi-Pyrenees area such as Saint Gauden, Lannemezan and Pau also have a great deal to offer in terms of shopping, especially the latter which is very upmarket and offers fantastic vistas of the Pyrenees.
