The historic town of Pau has a mild climate, numerous parks and gardens, and stunning views of the Pyrenees Mountains.
The town and surrounding region are renowned for excellent food and superb local delicacies and offer a wide range of sporting events and activities to keep you entertained on evening and weekends. Pau is home to several top national sports teams (basketball, rugby, handball), the oldest golf course in continental Europe and superb new spa facilities, and is just a stone’s throw from ski slopes, mountain trails and sandy beaches.
The NExT Training Centre Pau is easily accessible via regular international flights to Pau Pyrenees Airport and TGV rail links from Paris. NExT can help you with organizing your local transport and accommodation.
