Pau Holidays Overview
The largest and most stylish town in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques region of France, Pau has an unusually mild climate for its location. The centre of the city sits on a small hill with the River Pau running along its base. The old town is rich in well maintained or restored medieval and Renaissance buildings.
In the nineteenth century Pau was a favoured destination of wealthy Americans and Englishmen, who built large villas, and English style public parks, which provide an unusual contrast against the stunning mountain scenery. Modern day Pau is a centre for high tech industry and communications, making it a prosperous and vibrant city. It also has a large student population.
