On the market
Set just five minutes above Bagnères in the village of Pouzac is the beautiful golf resort of Golf de Bigorre where a three-bedroom apartment is for sale at €240,000. With spacious open-plan living and all the mod cons one could desire, it is perfect for year-round holidays or rental investment at a fraction of the price of similar properties in the French Alps. But it’s only when you step outside onto the lovely balcony that you really appreciate the location, as it is surrounded by snow- capped mountains with spectacular views over the 2,877m Pic du Midi and Col du Tourmalet, regarded by cyclists as one of the finest climbs in the world. The fabulous golf course is at your feet – you could even use your balcony as the 19th hole!
