We are located in the foothills of the Pyrenees near the pretty village of Sieuras close to the famous Bastide artists' village of Carla Bayle, 40 minutes south of Toulouse, in the Midi-Pyrenees.
Our newly renovated accommodation is at one end of our home; it is entirely self-contained with separate gardens & parking for your sole use.
In High Season the changeover day is SATURDAY.
We are ideally located for exploring the Ariege. The high mountains, with a broad choice of exciting outdoor activities, are about 30 minutes drive. Impressive Cathar castles perched on high crags, medieval towns & villages with colourful markets, huge caves, underground rivers all lie within easy reach. There is a swimming lake (with lifeguard) within 10 minutes drive. A supermarket (plus other amenities) & a 'Boulangerie-pātisserie' are also within a 10 min drive.
We have lived in the area for 9 years. We are keen walkers & bird watchers; we hike, snowshoe in the mountains most weekends. We use the refuges and wild camp. We assist in professionally led 'Chemin de la Liberte' Freedom Trail treks over the border into Spain. Cycling is very popular, with many routes in the local area. We can provide secure storage. There is an excellent fishing lake nearby and numerous mountain lakes where seasonal fishing is permitted.
We also have 2 children (13 & 14) so we are adept at entertaining the younger ones & encouraging them to enjoy the great outdoors! As you may have noticed, we do have a friendly dog, Tiffi, and 2 cats. None are allowed in the guest accommodation!
The Ariege has a huge amount to offer, not just the magnificent mountain scenery, but also it's fascinating history, rich culture, diverse wildlife & great food.
Please do contact us to find out more & to discuss your own ideas & requirements?
