Our relaxed guesthouse is located just a short walk (15 mins) from the heart of Foix, in the foothills of the Pyrenees and is a perfect base for year-round holidays. Foix is a lively market town with an historic medieval castle, busy market offering the best of local produce, pavement cafes and bars, and a wide choice of restaurants ranging from high-dining to family-friendly. The Pyrenees surrounding Foix are stunning and the Ariege is rich in culture and history, with medieval castles and ruins, prehistoric cave paintings, bustling towns and sleepy French villages.

We have the famous Cols of the Tour de France, fabulous crags for climbers and hiking and mountain bike trails right on our doorstep, with the Cathar Way starting just a 5 min walk from us. We're also within easy access of a wealth of sporting activities including horse-riding, golf, canoeing, rafting, canyoning, paragliding and watersports. If on holiday with a young family there's plenty around to keep everyone entertained : animal parks and farms, Prehistoric and Dinosaur Park, nearby lakes with pedalos and beaches for swimming and the science centre for rainy days (of which there are very few!) We also a children's area with trampoline, swings and a sand pit so that you can relax too. Foix is ideally placed for day trips to surrounding places of interest eg Mirepoix, Carcassonne, St Lizier, the ruins of Montsegur & Roquefixade, the caves at Maz D'Azil, and Niaux with the famous prehistoric cave paintings and a short drive to the Mediterranean coast takes you through wine country on the way. Back at home Corinne is a qualified yoga teacher and we run daily drop-in yoga classes in our small studio or out by the pool. Everyone is welcome no matter your yoga experience. We have a small fleet of mountain bikes too and can offer maps and local knowledge as well as transport to trail heads further away for those who're interested. So, whether you want to explore, get active in the mountains, or simply relax by the pool you're sure to have a great time.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

In the heart of the Ariege, our guest house is ideal for exploring this unspoilt region, and the mountains offer so much to see and do. Nearby are lakes with sandy beaches, lovely walks and hikes, and all the acvities you'd expect in the mountains from climbing to horse riding. Both road cycling and mountain biking are extremely popular, and in the winter there's downhill and cross country skiing available. For those looking for culture, the prehistoric cave paintings at Nauix are a must see, and the string of Cathar castles, perched on the hill tops nearby are fascinating.

Foix

Foix is an atmospheric market town, dominated by the castle, with cobbled streets and historic buildings, and pavement cafes, bars and restaurants.

There's a wealth of great outdoor activities including walking, climbing, rafting, canoeing, horse-riding, fishing, golf and paragliding.

There’s also plenty for kids including a prehistoric park, miniature railway, wolf farm, lakes with sandy beaches for swimming and donkey trekking to name a few.

In winter you can take the 'ski train' from the bottom of our road up to Ax-les-thermes for around 30 euros, which includes train, cable car and ski pass for the day. Snowshoeing, ice-climbing and sledging are all very close by.

I'm stunned that Surya-Pyrenees has only two reviews. Maybe that's because the people that have stayed here want to keep it a secret so they can get another booking before everyone else.From… More

"Beautiful hidden gem"

Myself, my partner and son who is 4 years old stayed here in June for a week. This place really is something special, the owners are lovely and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.

The accommodation is really clean and you just feel at home. Our bedroom slept 3 people comfortably and had nice views of the mountains and also the pool, the lounge area is great, with a tv, sitting area and dinning table, giving plenty of room, cooking facilities are great, you have an indoor stove, outdoor cooker you can use and also the bbq. Outdoors you have full use of the pool, we had the pool pretty much to ourselves too and the views from the pool are just amazing, also all closed in so really safe for children, for the kids there is also a trampoline and swings. Our 4 year old absolutely loved it as there was so much for him to play with. We had breakfast included in our holiday and all I could say I would highly recommend, fresh bread and croissants, yogurts, fresh fruit from the garden, fresh coffee and a variety of cereals to choose from, absolutely gorgeous!

The house is a 15 min walk to the town of Foix, lovely little French town, full of character and things to do. Highly recommend a trip to the castle too - I think it was about 6 euros each to get in, so well worth it. Also about a 10 minute walk from the house is a train station if you dont take a car, we didn't and we managed to get around just fine. Also for an additional cost the owners will take you to places if you need.

Most enjoyable holiday and highly recommended, we cant wait to go back again!
