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.

Dear Andrea and Paul

We had a great christmas season in Tapovan.  The Pyrenees are a wonderful place to visit.  So many things to do.  So many wonderful places and views to see.

We felt like David when he wrote Psalm 19 "The heavens proclaim the glory of the God.  The Skies display his craftsmanship.  Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known."

Even if we could not drive to so many places near Massat, we would have the same feeling just staying in Tapovan  

Thanks for lightening up the fireplace every day so the house was warm when we got back at night.

Hope to see you again.
