Mini Guide to Pau

Why is Pau so Popular?
There can be no doubt that it’s the location of the town at the foot of the Pyrenees that is Pau’s main attraction. There are few places with such a beautiful aspect and it’s on the popular GR65 hiking trail. The town has other attractions too including great gastronomy, culture and sporting opportunities.

How do I get to Pau?
Pau-Pyrenees Airport is only six miles northwest of Pau and the town is easily accessed by hire car collected from the airport. There are flights from London City Airport twice weekly to Pau or you can connect at Paris Charles de Gaulle from London for daily flights to Pau. The airport is a small one but has reasonable facilities including a restaurant and a shop.

What Should I see or do in Pau?
The Chateau de Pau is the main visitor attraction and is a beautiful palace, the birthplace of Henri IV. The architecture is dazzling and unlike many other chateaux in France, it is fully furnished with pieces from the time. Things to do nearby include hiking in the nearby Pyrenees, perhaps following the GR65 national hiking trail. Hang gliding is also popular in the mountains if you’re brave enough.

Getting the funicular railway up and down from the station is fun and gives good views out over the valley and across to the mountains. Try fly fishing in the river that flows through the town and enjoy the snowy landscape in winter.

Let us help you explore the mountains around the town with a rugged 4x4 hire car from Pau. Pau is one of the most beautiful locations in France and in an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are few more spectacular places to visit but to be sure you stay safe on the twisting mountain roads around the town, choose a four wheel drive hire car from our extensive range of hire cars in Pau. Alternatively, if you’re arriving at Pau-Pyrenees Airport, collect a pre-booked hire car there.

Whichever location you choose, you can rest assured that you’ll have secured the best deal on Pau car hire for we work hard to find the best prices then pair them with exceptional service and a wide range of insurance cover all included in the price. Few car hire companies offer collision damage waiver in with the price, even fewer add 24 hour roadside assistance as well so if you’re considering hiring a  car from Pau-Pyrenees Airport or in the town itself, you know who to choose for the best deal.
