The English middle classes have been coming here regularly since the early 1800's. The bracing climate from the nearby Pyrenees helped cure their pasty complexions. It certainly worked for moi ;-)

Pau was proud to have France's first openly gay mayor, who had a big impact on the city. Unfortunately he died in March 2006, after several decades in office.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Busy city, pretty architecture, good shopping, brave politicians
  • Cons:Maybe not everyone wants to find an 'English' city in France
