+33 6 47 52 49 63
Mountain guide state-certified, I renovated two barns in the Haut-Couserans of Ariege in the Pyrenees in the splendid valley of Ustou. The accomodation capacity of each of them is four people. I organize hiking stays for groups at all the seasons for two to seven nights.
There are situated at the beginning of a hiking path at an altitude of 925 meters (3034 ft). They can be accessed by a paved road which stops right in front of them. The path is one of the famous « paths of the liberty » rided by the resistants of Ariege during the world war two and Spanish civil war for helping the jews people, the resistants fighters or Spanish republicans to cross mountains and move in Spain or in France.
With your friends or family, various walks are possible during your stay. You can walk in different areas and exploring the mountains of Couserans : the Ossese valley to the Marterat pass with his ibex recently re-introducted in Pyrenees,The Fouillet and Ars valleys and their spectaculars waterfalls, the famous cirques of Cagateille or Anglade, the fabulous lakes of La Hilette, Guzet, Alet, Alate and of course that of Certascan, different mountains peaks and their spectacular view like red peak of Bassiès, Montabone and Certascan peaks, Mont Ceint peak, Mont Valier peak.
During winter I organize snowshoes hiking stays in wilderness areas of Ustou valley and her harmonious ski resort of Guzet-neige. We identify animals tracks and profit of an immaculate view.
The walks are well-adapted to the level and age of the groups (easy discover of mountain environment, riding with a donkey for children, athletic trekking…)
The Ossese river near the barns, the Alet river in Valley of Ustou and different altitude lakes are delightful for wild Fario Trout fishermen.
Electricity is supplied by solars panels and there is spring water. During your hiking stays I can supply local products that you can taste and enjoy. You can take advantage of books and films on the mountain, and board games.
It's also possible rent them.
