Leaving the Garbet Valley between Oust and Ercé, you follow a lane which winds for 4k among woods and flowers until it reaches Miramont,a hamlet paradise overlooking the Bassin d'Oust.
A car is neccessary- we are 1h from the Toulouse Bayonne autoroute((A64 jn 20); 2h from Carcassonne and Lourdes airports (Ryanair) and 1h30 from Toulouse-Blagnac (Easyjet, BA,and others.) Please do ask for information. Detailed directions are sent on reservation.
The Ariege-Couserans (18 valleys converging on St Girons) has a rich and varied heritage of which the locals are fiercely and justly proud. It has the wildest, most remote and unspoilt scenery of the Pyrenees as well as the gentler beauty of its lower valleys and slopes, and Miramont is ideally placed for you to explore wherever the fancy takes you. Walking is superb whatever your level, (we are close to the GR10, GR pays, Chemins de la Liberté and numerous walks to the Spanish border) and for those interested in the abundant and beautiful flowers and wildlife of the Ariege, we can put you in touch with local specialists (we have several books on the subjects.) There is an excellent Centre Equestre nearby, catering for beginners to dressage level, as well as wonderful hacking; canoeing in the Salat, lake and river angling, and skiing at the family-oriented resort of Guzet-Neige, known as the most beautiful scenically in the Pyrenees. "Golf de l'Ariege" is about 1h away, as is the Riviere Souterraine de Labouiche where you can take a boat trip through some phenomenal underground caverns. Beautiful Gallo-Roman St Lizier adjoining St Girons is one of “les plus beaux villages de France”, and a UNESCO site, while medieval Foix and its chateau is 1hr away. Numerous Cathar castles, the world-famous Grottes de Lombrives/Niaux and Tarascon’s park of prehistoric art are all within a 2h radius, as are the Observatory of the Pic du Midi de Bigorre, Lourdes, Carcassonne and of course Toulouse, "La ville rose".
