Live a week of Béarn
The most surprising thing about arriving in the area is proximity and the relationship to time. In fact, unlike large agglomerations, multiple experiments and various activities can accumulate in a lesser time : to make a morning jogging on the hills of Montardon facing the snowy Pyrénées, to find collaborators in a high-tech area to develop a new project, savor a hen at the terrace pot of downtown Pau, join a group of researchers in Lacq, enjoy an exhibition at nay, finish the evening around a glass at a producer of Jurançon with some friends…
Spend a week at the foot of the Pyrénées !
