Laytoure is an Ariegeois farmhouse dating back to the 18th century, pleasantly situated in a tranquil rural area with rolling hills, sunflower fields and glimpses of the Pyrenees, but only 8 km from the town of Pamiers which has shops, restaurants and all facilities. Part of the farmhouse operates as gite/B&B, and we also offer a separate self-catering apartment. The first-floor apartment is very light and airy, facing south with views over the fields towards the Pyrenees. It has a fully equipped kitchen/diner lounge, a bedroom with twin beds and an en-suite shower room. Guests are welcome to use the plunge pool, gardens and outdoor furniture, which may be shared with gite guests, and the apartment also has its own space in the garden. We live on site in a separate part of the house and are on hand to offer any help you may need.
The Tour de France is passing very close to the house on 22nd July this year.
Laytoure is an excellent base for exploring the Ariege; whist the region is comparatively unknown as a tourist destination, it has plenty to offer including picturesque towns and villages, Cathar castles and prehistoric sites. Activities such as horse riding, swimming, climbing, aerial walkways, kayaking and golf are available locally. It's a great area for walking and cycling, and the St Jacques de Compostella pilgrim route runs through our village. Further afield you can travel to Carcassonne, the high Pyrenees, Andorra and the Spanish border; an hour and a half's drive takes you to the Mediterranean.
To reach us you can fly to either Toulouse or Carcassonne airport, both are under an hour's drive away.
