Alan Rogers Review

Le Vieux Berger, under new ownership, is a small campsite on the edge of the town and within easy reach of the Sanctuaire Notre Dame de Lourdes, just under two kilometres away. There are views of the Pyrenees from many of the 63 touring pitches, with electricity connections (6/10A) available; trees provide shade and the owners’ aim is to ensure a peaceful, green environment. There is a new separate area for motorcaravans with hardstandings and grass verges; open all year, it would be an ideal stopover for visiting Lourdes. A shuttle bus service runs to the entrance of the sanctuary area several times a day in season. The shops, bars and restaurants of the town are within easy reach. There is a little road noise.

Lourdes has an interesting château which houses the Museum of the Pyrenees. From the top of the Pic du Jer, just south of Lourdes, (accessible on foot or by funicular railway) there are spectacular views of the town, of the surrounding countryside and of the Pyrenees beyond. Head south to Argelès-Gazost and on up the valley to Luz-Saint-Sauveur and eventually the spectacular Cirque de Gavarnie. Visit the historic towns of Tarbes or Pau, the latter being the capital of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques.
