Getting around

A car is essential not just for getting here but also for making the most of your stay. Public transport exists( a twice daily bus service along the valley floor to St Girons, and a 1€ bus service from St Girons to Foix) but both are confined to main roads and you will need your own steam to get to your chosen point of departure, whether it be a walk or any other activity, or siteseeing in general. However, once here, we have also had guests for whom part of the joy of being here is by using only their feet, or a bicycle, to go anywhere else. The beauty of Ariege lies in the fact that most of it is off the beaten track!

“Our time at Le Pichet was without doubt the highlight of our “grand tour””

Reviewed 11 Jun 2014

What an amazing week !! Not only did we improve our painting technique and develop our visual accuracy but also immersed ourselves in the beauty and variety of the countryside. We were completely spoiled by the generosity of our hosts and look forward to continuing our friendship and camaraderie. A truly memorable stay with you in this lovely area- and especially for me ... Angela We are so grateful for your inexhaustible hospitality and Rodney’s wonderful painting excursions and liberal lubrication with wine! Many thanks for your help introducing me to sculpture- “Babs” (“my pig”) will always remind me of our time with you all. .. Tony Thank you dear Rodney, Eleri, Will and Fern for a wonderful holiday ..... Pippa

Owner's reply: Thank you all for your lovely comments. Your time here was also an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding one for us, expanding as it did from painting into sculpture and poetry and with much laughter interspersed within the more serious painting moments. Your enthusiasm for "Le Pichet" and the surrounding Couserans (both mountains and architecture) which you portrayed so beautifully in your paintings, is something which will stay in our memory for a very long time, and we too look forward to continuing our friendship.

Thank you for a fantastic week. From the moment we arrived it felt like home ( but with more hills though!) Le Pichet is a wonderful base from which to explore this fabulous part of France. Rodney and Eleri are great hosts and extremely knowledgeable about the area Thank you again for all the advice on where to walk - it was invaluable. All the best, Malcolm and Rachel.

Owner's reply: Thank you. It was such a pleasure to welcome you to this region and we are glad that you were able to make the most of your time here. We would also like to thank you for the wonderful meal you cooked for us!

“Very nice property in beautiful setting”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2012

Thank you very much for a lovely stay.We have really enjoyed being here, your help and valuable advice about walks, local points of interest, driving directions and so much more. We loved the place and the mountains, and our dog will probably miss Fern even more than the Pyrenees. The mountains, the views and the countryside is spectacular

Owner's reply: Many thanks. We are so glad that you liked “Le Pichet” and that any local information we were able to give was of help; it is always a real joy to share the place with people who like ourselves love mountains.

“Perfect location, fantastic views, lots to do.”

We have stayed here several times over the last few years. There is plenty to do such as walking,riding,kayaking in the Spring, Summer and Autumn and skiing in the Winter. The owners of the property are really helpful with lots of local knowledge. For a family it suits over 8's my children now teenagers love it here. Guzet the local ski resort is ideal for families and is a short drive away. Last year my husband walked part of the freedom trail which was the mountain pass used during the war by the French resistance! We will definately stay here again provided there are vacancies as this place is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's reply: We are delighted that you continue to enjoy coming here, and making the most of all the outdoor opportunities the area has to offer - the excellent riding in particular. Congratulations to your husband for his walk on the “Freedom Trail”; a very difficult and hazardous walk today, even with modern equipment, as it was during the war. We look forward to your next visit, and may perhaps suggest a visit to the Museum of “Le Chemin de la Liberté”- an excellent exhibition and fitting memorial to the courage of all “Passeurs”.

“Idyllic setting in lovely region”

Reviewed 3 May 2012

This fortnight has not been just about the charm and beauty of “le Pichet” and it’s surroundings- the marvellous views, walks and delightful evenings spent together-it’s also been about the hospitality, kindness and camaderie of two exceptional people, Eleri and Rodney. They have made our holiday memeorable. Geraldine Stirrat, Richmond. July 2010.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind comments. It was such a pleasure for me too to be able to show you around this beautiful region while the others were out painting – there are so many cultural and historical gems to visit as well as the beauty of the mountains, and I particularly enjoyed our visit to St Lizier and the concert we attended in the Cathedral.

“Just what I needed, peace, light, views and great hospitality.”

Reviewed 2 May 2012

The two weeks here seem like a chapter rather than the few hurried notes that many holidays seem like. Time spent drawing with Rodney in the mountains, ravines and by the water will be valued for a long time- not just for the encouragement and advice about the drawing and pastelwork we did but also for the companionship and generosity. Special. Many thanks to both. Terry Crimmings, Twickenham. July 2010.

Owner's reply: We are so pleased you enjoyed your painting holiday and found it so rewarding. It is one that we will also remember for a long time, and hope that we will be able to welcome you back here one day.
