Domaine de l'Aragon, privately owned, is a French country house at the foot of the Pyrenees where you discover an atmosphere that makes you feel completely at ease.
The elegance of the decor, exquisitely furnished reception rooms, comfortable sofas and log fires create the comfort and warmth of a home from home.
The Domaine de l'Aragon offers 5 double bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. There are 3 superior and 2 standard rooms. All bedrooms overlook the grounds and some offer a view of the Pyrenees.
Each room has its own distinctive character, well appointed with comfortable furnishings and decorated with uplifting and restoring colours.
The surrounding area offers a great variety of outdoor, indoor and cultural activities. Below is a just a small selection with links and details that we have collected for our guests.

Cycling The area is ideal for mountain biking but if you are seeking a more leisurely ride then just take the opposite direction towards Orthez without any steep tracks. There are no excuses - we do have a few bikes available and are also happy to organise bikes for our guests.
Golfing The surrounding area also offers remarkable golfing facilities. The Pau golf club is apparently the oldest one on the continent; built by the English in 1856 because of the mild weather of the area. The next golf course is approximately 20 minutes from the house.
