A pretty and small village next to the Garona river, one of the las ones before entering the region of the Alto Garona (Haute Garonne) of France.
Typical houses of the area, other more French looking, with all sorts of colors. Hot water spas, fish hatcheries where enjoying caviar has become a genuine treat and peaceful strolls next to the Garona river, where it is possible to run into expert river anglers and of course, Romanesque architecture.
It is unique, but due to its proximity with France makes it practically assaulted by French tourists from the nearby country that are eager to buy cheaper things, this is a pity because Les deserves something more. As it is not very far from Vielha and the Baqueira ski slopes, it can be a good option as lodgings as it preserves a pretty rural touch and the road is very accessible.
If you want to take advantage and carry out sports activities in the Val d´Arán to feel a little adrenaline, Deportur is your best option. They not only cater to a great amount of rafting done in the area, but also have canoeing, cliff climbing, 4x4 routes or horseback tours and a long list of many other things one can do here.
The new jewel of their program is the possibility of doing high rope courses and abseiling. We embarked on doing this by being very brave as the tour is harder and we only lasted out half way through, but it is good training, even though as they recommend, it is better to start on the easier levels. There is also a small version for children.
