Aulon Village (1230 meters)

The location of the village is at the very core of the French département Les Hautes Pyrénées / National Park, has all the charm and character of a true mountain village.

About 11 kilometers away you will find Saint Lary Soulan (840 meters), forms part of a vast natural border area with Spain, makes it a link between the valley and the surrounding summits.

Its proximity to Spain (the Province of High Aragon) and the presence of a rich natural habitat teeming with wildlife and Flora & Founa, makes it a pleasant hamlet (population 95) which succeeded in the preservation of its typical mountainlife character for generations.

The village has been able to maintain a tradition of pastoral activities such as sheep farming, cattle rearing, (mohair wool) as well as the traditional making of ewe's milk cheese. The Aulon festival runs from early June and September and are not to be missed.
