Description

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.


About the property

La Hasta

The La Hasta gite and cottage are situated in idyllic surroundings with breath taking mountain views. The 1.8 acre garden is planted with mature fruit trees and shrubs and runs down to the La Corbiere, a premier category trout fishing river. The 10m x 5m size swimming pool and garden are shared with the owners.

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

Excellent base to explore pyrenees

  • 5 of 5

Property is lovely, has everything you need and is in a stunning location. The owners are really friendly, easy-going and very helpful. The south facing balcony, with amazing views, is a fantastic place to wind down with a glass of local wine after a day spent walking in the mountains. There is a wealth of fantastic walking for all levels nearby or further afield as well as lots of other attractions. There are really good supermarkets, shops, boulangeries etc a short drive away. The local area is lovely and everyone we met was very friendly. The pool at La Hasta is a real bonus too. We regularly holiday in the pyrenees but this is the first cottage we have decided to come back to (we plan to book it again next year) because of it being so nice, clean, friendly and such an excellent location. We had a fantastic holiday - thank you Sam and Helen!

We can recommand this place to all who like montains and nature and hope to come back next year.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Carcassonne at 95 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Tarascon-sur-Ariège at 4 Kilometres Nearest Golf : La Bastide de Serou at 38 Kilometres Nearest Train : Tarascon-sur-Ariège at 4 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : N20 before Tarascon-sur-Ariège at 2 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Rabat les Trois Seigneurs at 2 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Ax-Les-Thermes - Takes about 25 minutes at 30 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Beaches near Perpignan at 155 Metres Car: recommended

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.
