Blue Cairn Lodge

In the Val d’Azun (the Pyrenees Garden of Eden, or so they say…) Mandy rents out the “Grand Lodge” (up to 12 people) all year round.  Facing south east the lodge looks out onto the big sunny garden, with its own outdoor eating area.  Blue Cairn Lodge is on the edge the village of Arras en Lavedan with easy access to the bakery, a post office and two bars/restaurants. For local walks you simply head out the door and up or down the hill, onto the numerous local walking tracks and the ‘Tour du Val d’Azun’, the loop walk around the valley.  The village is situated just 5 minutes above Argeles Gazost, a charming small town, and there are numerous activities in the area (rafting, canyoning, high ropes course, mountain biking etc). Mandy, an international mountain leader, is on hand to provide advice and support.

Price: 1500€/week for the Lodge (sleeps 12) all year round. See map for location.  Contact to Book: Mandy
