Upcoming Events:

CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR

There’s something magical about Christmas and New Year in the mountains. Clear blue skies, snow-capped mountains, fragant pine trees and of course a roaring fire, homemade cake at teatime and traditional, wholesome dinners. Bookings are already rolling in so please don’t miss the opportunity to join us over the festive period. Le Mourtis ski station is only a short drive away and, if you don’t ski, we can arrange snowshoeing, fatbiking and guided walks in an undeniably beautiful wonderland!

Retreats: Le Grand Chalet is a great place to hold creative workshops such as photography, yoga, creative writing, cooking demonstrations and musical evenings.  Either bring your own group and instructors or we can provide occasional instructors and courses for you. Please email for details

Aspet events: Aspet is host to the summer jazz festival and regular traditional festivities and concerts are held in and around the village throughout the year.  It has also been fortunate enough to have had Le Tour de France pass through three times in the past ten years - and, on each occasion, right past Le Grand Chalet's front door!

LGC Ateliers Culinaires/Cooking demonstrations: Le Grand Chalet is delighted to host cooking demonstrations from September to May. The menus reflect the seasons and use local produce where possible.

Picnics: Why not plan a day out in the mountains with a picnic?  There are so many beautiful and accessible walks in the area, not all of which require a guide.  A baguette, local cheese, pâté, homemade cake, crisps, fruit, juice and water, perhaps a bottle/half bottle of wine, and you have an alfresco feast!

Bike rental: LGC is delighted to be affiliated with 02Bikes this summer.  Electric bikes and classic bikes are available for adults and children.  Available by the half a day and full day. Explore the surrounding area with ease! Maps of routes provided.

Massage Treatments: LGC is very pleased to be working in association with La Belle Vie. Chloé Valera is a qualified Massage Therapist, in whose capable hands all the tension and strain of the day’s activities will disappear, leaving you ready to start the following day in great form!

Guided walks and climbs: LGC works with some of the most experienced and knowledgeable guides in the area. 

Tennis: The local tennis courts are a two-minute walk away and rackets and balls are available for your use from LGC.

Other activities: Including: paragliding, fatbiking, horseriding and river rafting. There are many historical and cultural sites nearby such as the St Bertrand de Comminges and the Grottes de Gargas.
