This area is best suited to people who would like a holiday in a quiet, peaceful mountain environment. There are plenty of interesting walks from the front door of the house and there are numerous maps and guidebooks provided to go further afield into the mountains. It is great for mountain biking and for road cyclists who would like to try many of the local mountain cols. We have two hammocks and there is plenty of space to spread yourself out, both inside and outside the house. We own substantial areas of land surrounding the house so you will not feel cramped. There are 5 houses in the hamlet which is at the end of a road, so no through traffic. Only one house is inhabited all year, the others are French holiday properties. We are on mains water and electricity. The local town of St.Girons is only a 20 minute drive away, 10 minutes on the mountain road, then 10 minutes along the flat valley bottom. St.Girons is a busy market town where you can buy everything you might need.
We booked the farmhouse for the spectacular view from the decking and it didn’t disappoint.
Had a wonderful time here in your lovely home. It was perfect. Peace and quiet, gorgeous surroundings, beautiful weather and everything we needed.
The house is beautiful – cooling, spacious and full of character. We loved the quiet!
Your house is wonderful, the view, the wooden crockery, the everything

Our house is 20 minutes drive from St.Girons, a vibrant market town in the foothills of the Ariege. The area is famous for its peacefulness, beautiful mountain and river scenery, delicious local cheeses and a friendly unhurried pace of life.
Other Activities: RIVER CANOEING, MUSHROOM PICKING, BIRD WATCHING
Ski: The ski area Guzet Neige is within an hour drive of the house www.Guzet-Neige.com. It is a reasonable size and a friendly and family resort without the crowds of a normal alpine resort. The snow can be great - but it is not guaranteed.
