The Hotel Bristol Pau takes you on a journey of discovery through its city, experiencing the emotions of the great outdoors thanks to its idyllic landscapes.

The city of Pau is ideally located in the centre of the former sovereign principality of Bearn, in a green setting and thirty minutes from Spain. Its location at the foot of the Pyrenees and a short distance from the Pacific Ocean provides a pleasant climate all year round.

It has managed to preserve its heritage as well as its numerous green spaces. It has a marvellous landscape, a vineyard, and parks rich in exotic and rare plants... covering more than 750 hectares.

Enjoying extraordinary landscapes 

Hiking is one of the must-do activities in Pau. There are numerous routes listed by difficulty so that everyone can enjoy this unique experience.

It's great to think that the only way to get to a place is to make a physical effort. It immediately becomes more valuable than a place that is accessible by car.

It's an opportunity to get away from it all with great landscapes, to clear your head, to challenge yourself physically and mentally, but also to meet people who share this passion.

For a duration of about two hours and a distance of seven kilometres, the Hotel Bristol Pau recommends an urban walk in the heart of the historic city centre. This is an easy tour for all levels of ability, and will take your breath away with its landscapes while enjoying the architecture of the city.

Visit to the winery

As a wine lover and in search of new tastings, the Hotel Bristol Pau advises you to visit numerous wine estates. Indeed, the Pyrenean Piedmont is home to several renowned appellations such as Jurançon, Madiran, Saint Mont... Take advantage of your stay in Pau to visit these local producers.

You can also go on a tour of the hilly roads of Jurançon, in an independent wine estate to discover the soul of this golden-coloured wine. 

To accompany this day, a presentation of the culture, the vine and the wine making will take place with the presence of a passionate wine grower. 

You will be able to taste the typical snack of a winegrower living in the city of Pau: cold meats and cheeses from the artisans of the Halles de Pau, sweet specialities from the Maison Francis Miot as well as half a bottle of sweet or dry Jurançon per person.
