The Midi-Pyrénées region

The hamlet nestles in the foothills of the Pyrenees with Andorra and the higher Pyrenees within easy access. The medieval market town of Mirepoix is closeby with its cathedral and 14th Century timber framed buildings surrounding the main square, as is the bustling town of Pamiers with full amenities and services.

The majestic Pyrenees are to be seen in the distance, making a fantastic backdrop to the setting of the village. The Ariege benefits from hot summer months, warm early spring and late autumn and beautiful snowfall in the winter.
