The Aubert lakes, a magical place:

The Neouvielle Nature Reserve is a paradise for nature lovers with over 70 lakes in the most magical of settings, wild yet gentle, a verdant scene of colourful native rhodedendrons, blue gentians, thousand year old pine trees, all dominated by the Pic de Neouvielle at 3035 metres.

The Rioumajou forest, discover this secret place:

The Rioumajou forest is hidden and enigmatic, tucked away on the Spanish border. Follow one of the many streams which tumble from the waterfalls into the turquoise pools, you might even catch a glmpse of a deer or a capercaillie!

Mayor square in Ainsa:

A cobbled square surrounded by arcades and flowering balconies situated in the medieval upper town, built on the headland where it is protected by a fortress. The view is superb and the setting charming.

Ainsa lake:

A magnificent, turquoise lake accessible to bathers by many dirt tracks. A solitary church tower – the last remnant of the engulfed village – stands out of the water in the middle of the lake. A startling scene.

Sensoria, the height of luxury:

The Sensoria Nuxe Spa offers the sublime combination of soothing natural treatments with a luxurious setting. All the treatments proposed in the 11 cabins (one of which is a double) use the high range Nuxe products. It is a brand that offers a unique sensory experience, it is mastering the art of looking after you, with incomparable scents and textures.
