We loved the location, the house, the people, the weather and the peace and quiet. Loved the place.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located above the main village of Ascou. It offers lovely views and a restful environment in which to unwind and relax. The house provides good cooking and bathing facilities with all the facilities you need.

There are a variety of walks that can be taken directly from the house each offers its own rewards in terms of wildlife and scenery. At night you can enjoy the sunset with the drink of you choice and watch the owls and bats.

The main town of Ax Les Thermes is a 10-15 minute drive away and offers a range of restaurants and bars. The main square is a lovely place to enjoy a coffee and cake and people watch. The markets offer a wide choice of local produce for home cooked meals.

The area is crammed with historical interest and we much enjoyed visits to the caves at Niaux and Lombrives. The Museum of Prehistory at Tarascon is excellent and the Cathar castles are worth visiting too.

If you like hiking, there are great routes on the local Grand Routes (GR) the Pic de Tarbesou is beautiful with lakes to sit beside and enjoy a well earned picnic lunch. The Spa in Ax Les Thermes is a great place to recover from a long day hiking. Wonderful!

Overall we loved the house, village and the area as a whole. A special mention for the local people as they were so friendly and helpful. Thank you Marie-Claire. A 5 star holiday location.

A wonderful, well equipped gite, in a tranquil and picturesque mountain village

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in this very comfortable, well equipped gite, which is situated in the pretty mountain village of Ascou. The location is spectacular, with a very pretty garden and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The gite is perfect for anybody wanting to explore the mountains near to Ax-les-Thermes. The location of the gite is directly on one of the GR walking routes. There is small road which leads to a lovely meadow, where we were lucky enough to see several hares, lots of birds and even a family of wild boar. This small road takes you to the lake in the village of Goulours.

The gite is approximately 5km from Ax-les-Thermes, where there are lots of shops, restaurants and mini-markets, so a car is recommended. Our hosts Marie-Claire and Maryse were very kind and welcoming.

The location is excellent for anybody on a hiking or cycling holiday.

We definitely hope to return in the future, as we simply love Ascou and the Ariege Pyrenees.

Paysage, ski, détente (thermes), gastronomie tout en un!

  • 5 of 5

Une location T2 avec tout le nécessaire culinaire, lecture, dvd et jeux enfants. Un jardin clos mais s'ouvrant sur un paysage à couper le souffle et conduisant à la cabane du trône pour les aventuriers en herbe.

Idéalement située entre Ax et Ascou pour skier famille et un peu plus suivant l'humeur. Les thermes à proximité même si la voiture est indispensable. Sans oublier la gastronomie locale et nos hôtes discrètes mais là pour guider et dépanner (encore merci pour le lait, nous avons évité une comédie du matin de notre princesse).

Superbes vacances !

  • 5 of 5

En vacances dans les Pyrénées avec deux jeunes enfants, nous avons pu apprécier la qualité du logement, la beauté des alentours et la disponibilité de notre hôte ! Une respiration et un moment de déconnexion ensoleillé et eneigé exceptionnel ! Merci pour l'accueil chaleureux qui fait tant pour de belles vacances ! Les enfants ont même voulu ramener un bout de neige ...

tres bien

  • 4 of 5

Rien de tel pour évacuer les tensions

Un site superbe, le calme absolu,

Des propriétaires très acceuillantes et discrètes mais toujours prêtes a donner un petit conseil

Et un gite confortable où tout y est pour nous rendre un séjour agreable

Je ne peux que recommander ce petit nid de bien être où j'ai séjourné 10 jours avec un temps splendide en prime
