About Simon Armstrong

We have lived in this part of France for over 12 years and enjoy a beautiful rural lifestyle with our 2 horses, 2 Labradors and 6 cats.

Simon Armstrong purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Simon Armstrong chose Ariege

Our Gite Melanie will suit people who love the countryside, whether to walk, cycle or just to explore by car. The spectacular Pyrenees are close by offering some of the best mountain scenery you will ever see. There are wonderful woodland, lake and mountain walks/trails to suit all abilities. The area has a total 'unspoilt' feel and this coupled with some wonderful medieval towns, cathar legends, food and local hospitality ... any guests are assured of a great stay.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the things that drew us to the property is that although we are in a rural setting it is not remote. There is easy access to medieval towns like Foix and Mirepoix, Carcassonne is only 1 hr away and 'La Ville Rose' .. Toulouse - makes for another wonderful day out .. there you can visit the Airbus factory and see just how they build an A380, or wander through the lovely streets that have great boutique shops, and a huge choice of restaurants and bars
