Pau, France- info from someone who's been there?

by amariel

I am looking to move to Pau, France. Could someone who's visited Pau, please tell me their thoughts on the area? I would like to know what they thought of the people, the climate, the location.... the general feel of the city? In other words, is it a decent place to live?

I've been there several times and find it a very pleasant, tastful city. Reasonably close to the mountains and the sea. Good rail links and cheapo flights to the London and Amsterdam. Apparently it is reasonably expensive to live there these days, it comes across to me as quite a well-to-do city, particularly with all the large 'English' villas. The surrounding countyside and nearby towns are very idiosyncratic, being in the heart of the ancient kingdom of Bearn.

Hi. You haven't listed any of your interests on your Home Page so it's a bit difficult to know what you are looking for.

The people are very friendly; the location is absolutely stunning. It's a pleasant small city with, as mentioned above, excellent connections to the rest of the world. They do get winter. Don't know how you feel about that. Summer is gorgeous.

Give us a little more information as to what you want, and you may get some more answers.

Good luck.

I am french and I have been living in pau for 2years, actually this is a great city and it's always getting better as there are a lot of changings made to melt the old part of the city with a busy place. There is a great castle and aroud old houses from de 15th century, but there is also victorians english houses with hudge parks. On the "boulevard des pyrenees" you can admire the mountains having a drink or walking.
people are very nice and helpfull. it's an hour far from the beah and the mountains but it's not expensive compared to the other big french city.
plus you can live out of the city in the country without being far.
the summer is great and the winter not so cold, it does'nt rain a lot.
to answer your question, yes, it really is a decent place to live and you're just going to love it as everybody does!

We fell in love with the area so much that we bought a house there.

The people are friendly and helpful.

The climate has a mix of glorious summers, (with beaches just about an hour away), and ski slopes in the winter, also within an hour. Because it does have rain, from time to time, it is not as burnt out as the Perpignan area, but is green and colourful in all seasons.

The best local wines are Jurancon and Madiran, and rose is very popular. There are plenty of vinyards to visit.

You can also drive into Spain for the day - San Sebastian is a lovely city.

If family visit, there is a lot to do and see. Warning - They will keep coming back.

I hope this is useful.

Travel Tips for Pau

A Day at The Races

by kokoryko

Since I live in Pau, I was twice at the races, and, if not fun as in the Marx Brothers movie, as a totally non-competent and non-involved (I do not bet) I find it interesting to spend one or two hours in this special ambience, walking around, and watch as much at the people as at the horses. . . .
Pau is a quite important place for races in France with 30 “meetings” per year, and, mainly in Winter. The Pont Long racecourse and the Sers Equestrian centre are the second equestrian complex of France just after Chantilly. The Steeple chase is said to be one of the most feared in Europe! I am not specialist. . . . I just tell for the interested people that the races are important, and yes, I have some fun watching. . . .
The following website http://www.hippodrome-pau.com/calendrier/fr_contenu.asp gives the dates for the meetings.
More information about the racecourse on the website below.

I look at the race of course (picture2), but the horses ran too fast for my cheap camera that cloudy day, and steeple chase is more spectacular live (Picture3), but I also like to walk around, look at the horses when they are prepared for the race just before they are geared (Picture4), or look just before the race, when the riders are concentrating (Picture 5). . .

Place Verdun

by mikey_e

I'm not sure if there is really any significance to Place Verdun, or if it is really just a regular square with shops and a hotel and restaurants, but for some reason it took my fancy while I was wandering about Pau. It is a fairly heavy traffic area, so it's not that it was tranquil and relaxing. Rather, I think that it was because of the arcades, which always seem to interest me. Go figure. If you too have a think for arcades, perhaps you should plan to include the Place in you list of things to do in Pau.

The Court of Honor of the Chateau

by hquittner

The most prominent part of the outside is a full sized statue of King Henri I stand under the central arch of the entrance to the Court of Honor. Some busts are also present upon different faces of the courtyard

Look in the backyards

by kokoryko

When you walk in the streets, going from one monument to the other, take your time and look in the backyards of the houses, as the main doors opening to the streets are open.Nicely decorated yards, balconies deserve a look. Given the humid climate here, and the hot summers, you may even find some tiny local tropical forests hidden in the backyards (picture 2). On rue Louis Barthou, when you enter the big doors, you even may find lush vegetation and the Pyrenees as background, and on other places just a small wisteria or a magnolia tree.

The little painted church of Momas

by kokoryko

The church is not on many guides and from outside is nothing remarkable, except the old gravestones; if you have a close look, you notice they are not even very old (picture 2). The paintings inside are rare in Bearn, and they are in a very good state of conservation, like the ceiling of the ship (picture 3).
I was lucky to be there in the afternoon of a sunny day and could play a bit with the light of the windows main picture . The colours of the windows are projected on the painted colours of the wall, and the details of the window appear more in the transmitted image than in the direct light (pictures 4 and 5).
