"Tapovan", Massat - Gite Tapovan (for 4) and La Petite Tapovan (for 2)

On the edge of the village of Massat, in the French Pyrénées, "Tapovan" is found high on the mountainside, at 750 metres altitude. Approached from our steep driveway, from a "no through" lane which leads to the hamlet of Eycherboul, the house is perfectly secluded. Set in woodland with fabulous, panoramic views across the valley towards the south, this holiday home is a wonderful haven, a place of peace and solitude. Here we can offer accommodation in "Gîte Tapovan" (for 4 people) and "La Petite Tapovan" (for 2 people).  We usually let on a self-catering basis, but bed and breakfast may be available by arrangement. As our house adjoins the gîte, we are close by to assist with requirements and queries should they arise.

"Tapovan" is an ideal base to explore the beautiful area of the Ariège. This part, the Couserans, is popular with walkers and cyclists (including the Tour de France) and enjoys good summer temperatures. In the winter, alpine skiing is available at resorts an hour or so drive away, Guzet-Neige and Ax-Les-Thermes for example. Nordic skiing and snow shoe (raquette) walking can be enjoyed a mere fifteen minutes drive away at the Etang de Lers.

6 - 13 June 2015 - Stunning!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Massat mountain hideaway.  Very much enjoyed the comfort and cosyness of the house - it has everything you need.  Andrea and Paul are perfect hosts with such passion and knowledge of the local area.  We were really appreciative of guidance on good walking routes as the area around here is huge and maps are deceiving!

The nature and landscape are just breath taking.  As we have just settled in to mountain life it's time to travel onwards.  But we will be back - we've loved it!

Thank you.
