Pau is the capital of Bearn. It’s located in the southwest of France. Pau is an old royal city set between the mountains and the ocean. In the 19th century it was very popular amongst the aristocrats. It’s a beautiful city located in a very green area. I’d love to visit here in the winter as well when you could go skiing in the Pyrénées as it’s only a 45 minutes drive from here. It’s an area I’d really recommend a visit to. Easy to get to from Biarritz, where you can find reasonable flights with different airlines. We used EasyJet. I really recommend!
