Something for all seasons in the wonderful Ariege and Pyrenees...

Pyreneen Vue gites, renovated farmhouse tranquil with amazing views.

Floc ferme is an old stone farmhouse with adjoining restored gites in an elevated position at the end of the village of Coussa, with wonderful views over the Pyrenees and surrounding villages

In a rural but not too remote area of beauty and tranquility. Views from the property include Mont d'Olme, Mont Fourcat and the historic Montsegur.

WINTER - why not come and play at the ski resorts of Ax-les-Thermes and Mont d'Olme or try cross-country skiing or snow-shoe walking at Plateau de Beille or soak up the atmosphere and apres ski...

Robin skiing at Mont d'Olme and ski mountaineering.


Why not enjoy a pool with a view...

There is something for all tastes in this unspoilt corner of southern France, for lovers of outdoors there are numerous walks and VTT cycle routes of varying difficulties and the unique climbing 'Escalades en Ariege' at Le Granit d'Auzat. Lombrives cave is the largest in Europe, or the Grotte de Niaux and Grotte de Mas d'Azil are worth a visit. The riviere souterraine de Labouiche offers a underground river cruise and there is the Pre-historic park for a day out.
The vibrant markets of Mirepoix and Foix both 15 minutes away or for the historians the cathar chateau of Montsegur, Roquefixade and ...

Although the setting is unquestionably peaceful and unspoilt, the gites are only 15 minutes away from hypermarkets at junction 6 of the N20 and a five minute morning drive brings you to a choice of two traditional boulangeries in the villages of Verniolle or Varhiles where you may buy newly-baked baguettes, croissants or warm "pain-au-raisin".
Main gite is fully self-contained with open plan style lounge diner. The french doors allows light to flow in and also enables you to have a wonderful view of the valley and mountains. There is an enclosed wood burner for winter rentals, logs are supplied. This gite accommodates up to 6 persons with use of sofa-bed in the lounge. Upstairs is a spacious twin bedroom and double bedroom with bathroom.

Le Repos (the rest) 2 - 4 persons, comprises of open-plan kitchen diner. Upstairs is a double bedroom and twin bedroom plus bathroom. From the double bed great views over the valley to the mountains, ideal for that 1st cup of coffee in the morning.
