Le Lys – de Superbagnères à Luchon…

Superbagnères – “Balcon des Pyrénées”… cette petite station de ski doit son surnom à son emplacement géographique: située sur un plateau à 1800m, elle offre une vue panoramique sur la vallée de Luchon et les sommets des Pyrénées dont le glacier du “Pico Aneto”(3404 m). Le 1er bâtiment aura été “le Grand Hôtel”, ouvert en 1922, il reste de nos jours encore, tout aussi impressionnant… 🙂

“le Lis(Lys)” is a 9km-mountain stream, flowing from the Pyrénées to Bagnères-de-Luchon, Haute-Garonne county…

Superbagnères – “Balcony of the Pyrenees”(1440m-2260m) is a small ski resort whose nickname is due to its geographical location: situated on a plateau at 1800m, it offers panoramic views over Luchon valley and some of the Pyrenean peaks like ‘Pico Aneto’ glacier(3404 m). The 1st building has been “the Grand Hotel”, it opened in 1922, and it’s still impressive nowadays… 🙂

P.S. I highly recommend the wonderful movie, directed by Robert Redford, with Brad Pitt & Craig Sheffer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z7yeXtBQMU

  7. Superb! Este doar ora 5 dimineaţa, dar am vrut să-ţi fac o vizită înainte de a pleca la drum! Cu drag şi pe curând!

  8. Looked for your picture in the mountains
    On those hills so steep
    Sought you down in the valley
    Perhaps you were with the sheep

    Into the Grand Hotel
    For a little peep
    Came to a final conclusion
    That you were still asleep

  9. Very beautiful pictures. I like the one of the sheep and the view of the complex from the distance.

  10. les paysages sont fantastiques! belle journée!
