A Chalabre holiday is guaranteed to leave you feeling relaxed and ready to face everyday life again upon your return home.
Although Chalabre is a small, traditional French town, there are still plenty of opportunities to enjoy activities that come with an exciting holiday. This includes activities such as swimming, walking, cycling, fishing, paragliding, tennis and skiing. The town itself dates back to the 13th century and a lot of the architecture from that time is still around today. Indeed, the town has a small medieval theme park within its fortified walls for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
If you decide to venture further afield than your wonderful Chalabre holiday rental house then it is recommended that you head for the beautiful old city of Foix, which is just under an hour’s journey west of Chalabre. Foix’s centrepiece is the 11th century castle which stands atop a rocky outcrop in the centre of the city. There visitors can get some wonderful views of the surrounding area, as well as exploring the three remaining towers and approximately a quarter of the original castle buildings. Foix is also home to the Ariege Regional Museum which exhibits displays of arms and hunting items that date back as far as the prehistoric era.
