La Hasta Cottage

The cottage is completely separate from the main gite and stands in its own south facing garden which runs down to the pool and river. It has a south facing balcony on the front of the cottage which is accessed via french doors from the lounge. The balcony has an electric sun shade which can be rolled out when it is really hot.

A very large porch (which is ideal for storing coats and boots) leads in to the lounge which is approx 4.5 meters by 5 metres. The lounge has a comfy settee which converts into a double bed, tile and sisal flooring, television, DVD/CD player. There is a separate kitchen with cooker, hob, sink and fridge.

Both the gite and cottage have their own sun terraces, offering the perfect place to soak up the sun.

What a great place!!!! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to meet Sam. A great bloke with loads of local knowledge. We went to watch the tour de france, Sam told us great places to watch it. He also advised us of places to go cycling and routes. The house/Gite itself is completely self contained and has all the facilities you could want. Even a balcony. There is access to the pool which is well kept and has beautiful views of the Pyrenees. The only 1 problem was the lack of English t.v. but the internet access made this alot easier if you have mobile devices/laptop. We will definitely be going back.

Ideal location, super cottage for 2.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place. Cottage great, area superb. Struggling to think of negatives. I suppose a dishwasher would be nice, that's about it. The internet connection was fast enough too.

Second year at La Hasta cottage was even better than the first!

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic holiday at La Hasta cottage - knowing the geography and where things are it was even better than last year. Amazing weather and exciting walking on the high peaks. Sam is such an excellent host (nothing is too much trouble - he even loaned me a yoga mat for our stay), the people of the area are so friendly and La Hasta Cottage is the perfect base for two with everything you need. The south facing balcony of the cottage is just fabulous and the pool is an additional boon for cooling down after a long, hot day of hiking.

La Hasta is a unique ski and pyrenean holiday venue, open all year round. It is on the sunny side of the Courbière Valley, at the head of which sits the 2000+ metre Pic des Trois Seigneurs. We can host up to 8 people in our gite and up to 3 in the cottage.

In the winter La Hasta is the ideal base for mountain sports including skiing (alpine/nordic/backcountry), snowshoeing and mountaineering. We are close to the resorts of Ax-les Thermes, Plateau de Beille and the 282k of pistes in Andorra.

In the summer we run holidays that mix adventure sport with yoga (alternatively you can just hire La Hasta and do your own thing). Our area of the Ariège is perfect for all manner of outdoor sports including rock climbing, hiking, canyoning, canoeing and cycling. At the end of the day you can relax by our 10 by 5 metre pool.

Within easy reach of La Hasta are the Niaux cave (famous for its prehistoric paintings), historic cathare citadels, thermal spas and typical market towns.

Other Activities: climbing, canyoning, canoeing

Ski: Our nearest and favourite downhill ski area is at Ax-Les-Thermes. It takes 25 minutes to get to Ax and park up and then a further 20 minutes (including 5 minutes to put on your boots) to get up to the main resort via ski lift. Ax caters for all levels of experience, from long green runs to some really 'interesting' black runs. There is plenty to keep you going for a week. There are many local options for hiring skis... We can help with arranging ski hire and can negotiate a discount for you.

Slightly further afield, though still within easy reach, is Andorra... As well as having duty free status it has 282 kilometres of pistes.

If you want a change from the pistes then there is the always the local snowsports centre at Plateau de Beille... Which offers lots of opportunities for playing in the snow... Nordic skiing, sledging, snowshoeing, dog sleighs... All with an absolutely wonderful view of the high pyrenees mountains.
