It is the principal town of the valley which extends for 50 km north to south. From Lourdes to the Spanish border. And 50 km west to east from Col d’Aubisque to Col du Tourmalet. There are also several smaller towns and many villages in this valley.

Argeles-Gazost is at 400 metres altitude, well below the snowline which is above 1000 metres. It is well served by transport links. It is 35km (mostly dual carriageway) to the A64 Autoroute. There is a TGV station 10km away in Lourdes and an airport at Tarbes , 30 km away. Driving time is approx 2 hours from Biarritz to the west, 2 hours from Toulouse to the east and 3 hours from Bordeaux to the north.

It is a very pleasant town with many fountains, magnificent villas, a thermal spa and an English park dating from the 19th century.

  1. Dear Sirs,
    You tell about our hotel on your website and it is very kind of you. We would like you to know that our hotel has changed of chain: it was used to be a BEST WESTERN Hotel but it is now a LOGIS Hotel. So could you please modify the name of our hotel? Now its name is LOGIS Hotel le Miramont instead of BEST WESTERN Hotel le Miramont.

    Thank you for your help and feel free to contact us for assistance.
    Sincerely
    Dominique PUCHEU
