Guestbook comments from the owner
Twenty Americans from Monterey, California, ranging in age from 17 to 69 years young rented the beautiful Château de Seignan in St-Girons, Ariège, Midi-Pyrénées for a week last July.

Although we had been friends, bicycling, and running partners for

many years, our week at Château de Seignan brought us together in a way none of us expected. The château was huge, with en-suite bedrooms for all, and three sitting rooms. The kitchen was first class, with several ovens and refrigerators and sinks; it was huge! The dining room easily accommodated our 20 residents, and it was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need, including 80 wine glasses, individual tea pots, and lots of serving trays. We had a chef come in 3 nights and we cooked for ourselves 2 additional nights, it was fantastic.

The château property is vast, with about 20 acres of huge lawns, a forest, a river, as well as a swimming pool, a tennis court, and several courtyard areas. There was no shortage of privacy or serenity. Each morning a group of us would go for a 5 to 10 mile run out the back door, across the river’s bridge to the edge of the forest. There an old dirt road extended for miles of gentle hills and lush green woods. There were no cars, only an occasional runner or walker.

Being a serious running group, we did our homework and found a local 12km race in a nearby town. Five of us competed and we actually won two awards, first International runner and 2nd female overall! The whole town turned out for the festivities. It was a blast! This area of the Pyrénées is a bicyclist’s paradise. You can head out from the château in any direction and be greeted with riding that is both challenging and spectacular. The first Monday we were there the Tour de France went through St-Girons, and most of our group went into town to watch the action. A few more adventuresome souls departed the château on their road bikes early on Monday morning to join the parade of Tour watchers going to the summit of the Col d’Aspet. What a thrill to ride up to the Col with the road lined with spectators cheering you on like you’re a rider in the Tour de France. The other days were spent out on the road climbing some of the other Cols in the area: the Col de Mente, the Col de Core, the Col de la Trappe, and the Col d’Agnes. At each summit there was a small café which served delicious pastries and espresso coffee. We will always remember our wonderful week.

Le Couserans is a small spot in Pyrenees were new technologies rub elbows with ancestral traditions, two different cultures that offer a good mixture.The Couseran people allow city dwellers in need of roots or authenticity to find relax, during holidays or longest stays. The economic situation is just like the othe rural French departments.

Agriculture and the traditional breeding remain, tourism is developing timidly and the local industry tries to survive even if it is subjected by the global market, in spite of that, life here is pleasant.

Located in Ariege, La Couserans is a mountainous land, with hills, meadows, lakes, waterfalls and forests. It is the western side of the Ariege departement. It has 18 valleys located at the foot of the majestic Mont Valier (2
