Make a holiday rental house or property in Ariege, France your home away from home

Ariege, a department in the Midi-Pyrenees region of southern France, borders both Spain and Andorra to the south. It is especially interesting location for anyone with an interest in pre-history, as the department has the highest concentration of pre-historic caves in France. However, there is far more on offer from a self catering Ariege property, with extensive access to the Pyrenees, and all the sport and leisure opportunities that entails.

Things to do on holiday in Ariege, France

The great outdoors are of course the main attraction in Ariege, especially in the summer when walking, cycling, horse riding and fishing offer an unbeatable way to get into the unspoilt natural environment. Trout fishing in Ariege can be on a diverse range of waterways, from fast flowing streams to hidden mountain lakes.

Walking, cycling and riding under the snow capped peaks, through lush valleys and deep forests can not be beaten for enjoyment and relaxation. Longer hikes into the mountains are spectacular, as you stumble across long forgotten castles and villages which defy belief. Pack donkeys or guides can be hired to help with your exploration too.

In winter, the mountains of Ariege have 10 ski stations for skiers of every level and some magnificent cross-country skiing trails. Snowshoeing is a fast growing winter and there are extensive trails in Ariege.

Spring fills the rivers and streams with raging melt waters, and flocks of kayakers and white water rafters fill the self catering Ariege properties to tackle the waterways. There are over 400km of accessible and practicable stretches of white water.

Rock-climbing, cannoning, caving and the adventure parks of Acro’lus and Horizon Vertical are sure to get the adrenaline pumping from an Ariege holiday rental too.

Winter of course brings the skiers, snowboarders and winter hikers.

Access to outstanding walking and beautiful Cathar Castles. This is a special location. The house is lovely and everything is very high quality. The sitting room / kitchen with the wonderful fireplace was the centre for our family stay. The owners are delightful and made our stay easy and interesting.

Tom (our host) met us and showed us where to bring our camper van in order to access our part of the property in order to unload. After that we left our vehicle parked 75 meters from our front door. The property was as described on the website - maybe just a tiny bit more rustic than than I had anticipated but that added to its charm. Tom kept us supplied with logs for the open fire which we really enjoyed in the evenings of early October. Our bedroom balcony looked our over fields, trees, sheep and cows. Wonderful! Tom's English was very good and he was very friendly - we even spent a bit of time 'making music' (us with our ukuleles and him on percussion). We loved learning about his shitake mushroom growing project :) Summary - beautifully peaceful and atmospheric place but you don't need to be too fussed by a few cobwebs and relaxed housekeeping. We would happily go back again.
