Over the last ten years the owner and his wife have poured their hearts into a beautiful renovation, using ecological building materials whenever possible. The character of this old building has been retained with some of the original exposed stone walls and the contrasting plaster and whitewashed walls with old wooden beams and doorways.

Heating

We have two Norwegian wood stoves that do an excellent job in keeping the house cosy during winter months. We sell the wood to you at the cost price. We have a simple method for costing the wood as we supply large bags that you can fill and you just have to tally how many you've consumed during your stay. We also have an electric radiator with a thermostat that will ensure that the house isn't too cold when you return from day trips. We do not charge for electricity consumed!

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

The Midi-Pyrenees / Ariège region
Wild and beautiful the Ariège is often referred to as France's best kept secret. Situated in South-Western France it is the most untouched and magnificent part of the French Pyrenees and is home to a vast population of plant, insect, bird and animal life. The possibilities to dive into the natural environment are endless, from river and lake swimming, to walks for all levels of fitness, (including the Chemin de la Liberté, the pilgrims route to Santiago Di Compostela and the well know GR routes) to horseback riding, canoeing, painting ....

With the wealth of historic, archaeological and cultural interest found in the Ariège it's so easy to feel transported to another age long ago. Prehistoric man left his mark in various grottos and caves, including Niaux and Le Maz D'Azil. Fantastic medieval settlements include Carcassonne, St Lizier and Mirepoix. There is a legacy of religious history seen in the cathedrals and churches throughout the area, not to forget the story left by the Cathar people, with castles including Monsegur open for viewing.

Saint-Girons

The drive to Rouge from St Girons is very pretty and almost immediately you feel lost in the middle of nature. The road meanders through the valley of Rivèrenert and climbs up to Rougé and on to the Col de Crouzette and the Col de Péguère, with it's breathtaking views of the pyrenees.
