The Midi-Pyrénées region

The Midi Pyrénées is a land of vibrant contrast, ranging from Pyrenean peaks reaching heights of 3 000 metres, to the Italianate elegance of the valleys of Gascony, the land of D'Artagnan the musketeer; nature parks full of rare treasures; and the bustling city life of Toulouse, with its museums, art galleries, shops and restaurants, its aerospace centre, and university.

With its 26,000km of signposted trails, the Pyrenees National Park and four regional nature parks in one of which the house is situated, Midi-Pyrénées is a destination that revolves around nature and discovery, lending itself to a wide range of activities such as walking, hiking, cycling, horse trekking, white water sports. There's also river tourism, cruising on the Canal du Midi, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Ax les Thermes (30 mins) is famous for its fabulously relaxing thermal baths.

Orus

La Fontane is situated in the Parc Naturel Régional in the Upper Ariege. After taking in the breathtaking views of the snowcapped mountains, you can engage in a whole host of outdoor activities. These include walking ( the coast to coast GR10 passes through the valley), all sorts of outdoor sports including fishing, mountaineering, caving, kayaking, swimming, paragliding, whitewater rafting, tennis, horseriding, pony trekking and yet more things to do. Wildlife abounds all around, including wild boar, roe deer, smaller animals such black squirrels and salamanders, and spectacular insects such as praying mantises and thousands of butterflies.

For cultural activities there are the must-see 12,000 year old Niaux cave paintings, the ancient ruined chateau de Sos, and first class local museums including the Parc de la Préhistoire, and the Forges des Pyrénées. In the summer every village has its fete, to which visitors are welcome, and lots of concerts including the popular blues festival at the village of Sem opposite us. There are also many local markets and vides greniers (car boot sales) at which you can pick up artefacts ancient and modern. There's a child friendly and good local restaurant La Table d'Arconac in the neighbouring village of Arconac (5 mins).

4/5

"Lovely spacious house with a stunning view."

We loved staying in this roomy, comfortable house with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Peter was very responsive to our questions via email and the local contacts, Eric and Cecile were really helpful and welcoming.
