A skiing holiday in the largest area of the Pyrenees La Mongie self catering resort is a great place to spend your family skiing holiday, and make the most of the largest ski area in the Pyrenees: Grand Tourmalet-Pic du Midi. You will be lodged in self-catering accommodation featuring traditional architecture, at an altitude of 1,900 m. With the slopes just 500 m away (free shuttles provided), you can set off from the resort to take on the 68 slopes in the Grand Tourmalet-Pic du Midi ski area. Extending over 100 km and peaking at 2,500 m, the Grand Tourmalet area combines two different kinds of ski resorts: on the west side, you have the traditional village of Barèges; and on the east side, the high mountain area of La Mongie, at the foot of the slopes. So you can have a change of scene and atmosphere as often as you like, and feel like you're discovering new landscapes every day! In this vast white paradise, all levels of snow sports (including alpine skiing and freeride) are encouraged. And if you prefer snow shoes, get ready because the footpaths await! If going on a skiing holiday in the Pyrenees at the La Mongie self catering resort gives you a few aches, so much the better! Because it's a great excuse to go and be pampered in the neighbouring thermal spa town of Bagnères-de-Bigorre. With spas, massages, fitness & well-being treatments€¦ – life doesn’t get much better!
