Saint Lary , Living in the Pyrenees

As soon as you arrive in Saint-Lary, you’ll enjoy discovering the beauty of an authentic Pyrenean village. The village’s stone and half-timbered facades make it a rich, authentic and well-preserved heritage, typical of the mountain environment. Its proximity to the surrounding villages makes it a very friendly place to live.

A festive Pyrenean village

What a pleasure it is to stroll through the lively streets around the many shops, looking at the windows of souvenir or home decoration boutiques. But you’ll also find fashion boutiques, a jewelry store or sales of local produce of course!

The atmosphere of the Southwest is not lacking either! The terraces of our bars open up and come alive in the main street, which becomes pedestrianized during busy periods. Cafe owners and restaurateurs take advantage of the opportunity to extend their terraces all day long.


Eager to discover the gastronomy of the Pyrenees? You have the choice of sampling our products either to take away or as a tasting at a table in one of our many restaurants. Our producers who raise ewes, goats, cows or black pigs are proud to offer their products to our restaurateurs.

Black pigs are the star of our plates, and cheeses from our pastures accompany them on our gourmet menus. Our local markets are the perfect place to discover all these products. In Saint-Lary on Saturday mornings, in Arreau on Thursday mornings and in Vielle Aure on Tuesday mornings.

Yesterday's crafts

but especially today...

Organic production and priority to short circuits!

Our breeders

And their cheeses from the heart

Our farmers also produce goat’s and sheep’s cheese, and you can visit them directly at their farm. They’ll be happy to let you taste their products and sell them to you on the spot.

An exceptional natural heritage

Ideally located in the Pyrenees mountain range, in the Pyrenees National Park, our valley stands out for its proximity to exceptional sites such as the Néouvielle Nature Reserve or the ORDESA National Park in Spain.

Ideal for hiking, whitewater sports (canyoning, rafting), downhill and enduro mountain biking, cycle touring and paragliding. Our valley can also be explored in relaxation mode around our villages or other developed leisure centres, with our incomparable Pyrenean peaks and crests as a panorama.
