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.

We went to watch the tour de france, Sam told us great places to watch it. He also advised us of places to go cycling and routes. The house/Gite itself is completely self contained and has all the facilities you could want. Even a balcony. There is access to the pool which is well kept and has beautiful views of the Pyrenees. The only 1 problem was the lack of English t.v. but the internet access made this alot easier if you have mobile devices/laptop. We will definitely be going back.

We had the pool to ourselves every day, beautiful, large gardens to explore and relax in. Brilliant location, 2 mins drive from Mirepoix or 20 minute walk, close to loads of things to do and see. Patrick and Marie-Claude were great, helpful and accommodating.
