Dusk image in Pyrenees mountains on the Ossau Valley in the South of France.
The Ossau Valley is a preserved green valley, attached to its ancestral traditions: the moving of livestock called “transhumance”, traditional songs and dances. Intact agriculture characterizes the valley and many delights await the mountain hiker.
Here the nature is respected and offers a large diversity in flora and in fauna, with the majesty of the Ossau Peak in the background.
The shepherds still practice the moving of livestock to high elevation pastures in summer to work on an authentic cheese, rich in taste.
The herd and flocks here still bear their usual bells so that the shepherd can hear them. Bells are still made in Bearn and can be bought as a “souvenir”.
