Luz St Sauveur

Luz is a relaxed and easy place to spend a holiday. There is something for everyone: the thermal bath complex has all sorts of treatments, the local swimming pool is a great place to laze around (and now accepts board shorts!), the tennis court complex is close by, trampolines in the centre of town amuse the kids, ten pin bowling provides a good fun outing, there are a number of good restaurants and small bars, many walking paths lead straight out of the village and you can even fish for trout and play mini-golf. Aside from the pleasures of the town itself Luz St Sauveur is in the centre of the ‘Grand Sites’ of the Hautes-Pyrenees. The Pic du Midi (and nearby Col du Tourmalet), the Gavarnie Cirque, the Pont d’Espagne and Lourdes are the must see sights of the area.

Below some of the self catering possibilities are listed. There are more so contact us with your specific requirements and we’ll do our best to find the perfect place for you.


Chez Pierrot

Perfect for families, in the historic centre of Luz

This converted stable is situated in the historic centre of Luz just around the corner from Hotel Les Templiers. There are only two apartments, which share a beautiful walled garden with the owner (a very discreet, wonderful local grandma). We generally rent the top apartment, which has two double bedrooms and a mezzanine with two single beds.  The living/dining room has big double glass doors leading out onto a south facing balcony with a wonderful view onto the mountains above. The bathroom has a separate toilet and the kitchen is modern with all the basics. The overall feel is comfortable and relaxed. 750€/week with linen, information pack and all assistance provided in July-August, 650€/week May-June-Sept-Oct.

Chez Annie et Christophe

Stylish, modern and charming

Just above the fortified church in the historical centre of Luz Annie and Christophe have transformed an old hotel into two two bedroom apartments and one studio apartment.  With superb taste, many wonderful photos of the valley from Annie’s father, and old tools from Christophe’s uncle’s barn, the whole house has a modern and charming atmosphere.  While in the centre of Luz the flower and plant filled terrace gives a taste of the mountains – you are in a quiet part of town with the activity of the centre just two minutes walk away. Studio 440-560€/week, two bed apartments 555-775€/week (June-Sept/July-Aug). All prices include linen, information pack and assistance.

The Calihour Apartments

A practical base in central Luz

A complex of four apartments in the main house, and two (can be inter-connecting) apartments in a smaller building on the side. Each apartment has a south facing outside eating area, a storage area for skis or bikes, and all you need in the kitchen to enjoy your stay. The view is lovely and the complex is very well situated just above the historical centre of Luz for easy access to shops, bars and restaurants. There is public parking just opposite the rear entrance. Apartments sleep from two – six people.
