Nestled in the corner of rural south-west France stands Pau, capital of the Béarn
region and bastion of history and culture. The town occupies a unique geographical position in the foothills of the Pyrenees. As well as awe-inspiring views of the mountain range, Pau is only a few hundred kilometres from the major towns of Bourdeaux and Toulouse and even closer to Spain and the Atlantic Ocean. A springboard to sunny beaches and snow capped mountains, Pau’s pretty streets and excellent gastronomy are enough to ensure leaving will be difficult. Enjoy its relaxed and friendly elegance without any sense of guilt. The parts to wander are the streets behind the boulevard des Pyrénées, especially the western end, which stretches along the rim of the scarp above the Gave de Pau, from the castle to the Palais de Beaumont, now a convention centre, in the English-style Parc Beaumont. On a clear day, the view from the boulevard is out of this world, encompassing a hundred-kilometre sweep of the highest Pyrenean peaks, with the distinctive Pic du Midi d'Ossau slap in front of you. In the narrow streets around the castle and down in the gully of the chemin du Hédas are numerous cafés, restaurants, bars and boutiques, with the main market in the halles just northeast on place de la République each Saturday morning. The Château itself is very much a landmark building. Not much remains of its original appearance beyond the brick keep built by Gaston Fébus in 1370. The handsome Renaissance windows and other details on the inner courtyard were added by Henri d'Albret. Louis-Philippe renovated it in the nineteenth century after it had stood empty for two hundred years, and Napoléon III and Eugénie titivated it further to make it suitable for weekend house parties.
