It offers lovely views and a restful environment in which to unwind and relax. The house provides good cooking and bathing facilities with all the facilities you need. There are a variety of walks that can be taken directly from the house each offers its own rewards in terms of wildlife and scenery. At night you can enjoy the sunset with the drink of you choice and watch the owls and bats. The main town of Ax Les Thermes is a 10-15 minute drive away and offers a range of restaurants and bars. The main square is a lovely place to enjoy a coffee and cake and people watch. The markets offer a wide choice of local produce for home cooked meals. The area is crammed with historical interest and we much enjoyed visits to the caves at Niaux and Lombrives. The Museum of Prehistory at Tarascon is excellent and the Cathar castles are worth visiting too. If you like hiking, there are great routes on the local Grand Routes (GR) the Pic de Tarbesou is beautiful with lakes to sit beside and enjoy a well earned picnic lunch. The Spa in Ax Les Thermes is a great place to recover from a long day hiking. Wonderful! Overall we loved the house, village and the area as a whole. A special mention for the local people as they were so friendly and helpful. Thank you Marie-Claire. A 5 star holiday location.
