The Pyrenees

The French Pyrenees as a whole are generally regarded as a family destination and can provide the perfect location for your family summer holiday. Ski, walk hike

Famous for its food and wine. Most of the food, fruits & vegetables available locally.

French Public Holidays
On public holidays (14/5, 25/5, 14/7, 15/8) you will find shops, museums and banks are often closed, so make sure you have enough local currency to tide you over.

General travel advice
The Foreign Office offers general travel advice and country specific advice. Please check their website for useful information. Their Know Before You Go section has important information.

French School holidays
Please note that summer school holidays in France run from 4/7/15 to 31/8/15. Resorts can be particularly busy during this period with more crowds and some queuing at the lifts. If you can avoid these period, not only you will avoid the crowds but you will also pay less for your holiday.
