    The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...

    It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.

A Quick Guide to... Pau

Pau is a commune and the capital of the Pyrenees-Atlantiques department, in the Aquitaine region of southern France. The city was the capital of the traditional Bearn region of southern France, an honour that was given to it in the 15th century. Today the city is famous for its university, the Universite de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, and its elevation. The city is on a 200m elevation and overlooks the mountain river, the Gave de Pau.

The main attraction in Pau is the Chateau de Pau, which is a large castle that dominates the city’s skyline. It was the birthplace of the 16th century king of France, Henry IV, and was regularly used by Napoleon as a holiday home in the 19th century. It is now considered of great historical importance to France, and houses a vast collection of tapestry.

The city is also home to a number of great sporting attractions, including the local basketball team, Elan Bearnais Pau-Orthez, who have produced world-famous players like Boris Diaw and Johan Petro. The city also has a football team, Pau FC, and a rugby union team, Section Paloise, who play in the French second division. Elsewhere Pau has been home to the first golf course on continental Europe, which was laid in 1856.

The weather in Pau is what would be expected from an mountainous region, it’s colder the higher you go, with an average summer time temperature of 20C and an average winter temperature of 5C. In the winter months snowfall is also common in Pau so if you are travelling there in the months between November and February it’s advised that you wrap up warm.
