Valleys in Arette
Barétous Valley
This idyllic valley connects Barétous Oloron-Sainte-Marie with the Roncal Valley, in Navarra. It is guarded by the Pierre Saint-Martin, a giant mountain 1620 meters high, where there is a ski center. From Oloron, the valley opens up and a thousand things dot the rolling landscape: signs that offer 'pate de canard' and 'fromages', white cows grazing quietly, fishermen on the banks of streams, people coming and going on bikes, hamlets with colourful slate roofs and an infinite number of blooming roses. In Aramits, the legendary birthplace of one of the Three Musketeers and capital of the region, the shepherds' tents are covered with slabs. The beautiful Lanne-en-Barétous houses the châteaux of Porthos, which is now a magnificent castle hotel. Here the road forks: one can continue to the heights of Pierre Saint-Martin or continue along the Béarn. If you've fallen madly in love with this land, continue to Montory, a tiny town full of charm. Then visit Ordiap, whose twelfth-century Romanesque church has a curious tower.
Unusual Places in Arette
Borda Fromage
This is one of those wonderfully unique places that you do not expect to find at an altitude of almost two thousand meters. It is situated at the top of one of the multiple passes of the Pyrenees on the French side, just a couple of kilometers away from the Train Station of Arette. It is like a place from a story, it follows a curve on a small flat plain, steaming, whose sole inhabitant is a young French man who makes his own artisan cheese from sheep / goat which you can try and take home with you, or just ask him to make you a sandwich to continue on your way along the mountain route. Definitely a place to visit.
Skiing in Arette
That's how you feel, when you go through here in the summer, and you see the station, alone, without people (apart from the workers who are working ..) no snow .... you wish it would snow so that you could go back to the top in a ski life to ski on the slope...
