Saint Girons and the Vallées du Couserans

Saint Girons

We love:

  • The Saturday market at St Girons - renowned for miles around.  Take a look at this video made for the Fête de la Musique 2014 
  • The mountains that take your breath away
  • The beautiful, rugged valleys of the Couserans
  • The mountain villages and hamlets that feel like you've stepped back in time
  • The family-feel ski station of Guzet Neige, catering for all levels of skiers
  • The history - visit the Maison du Chemin de la Liberté to get a glimpse of what happened here in WW2
  • The many walking trails, like the GR10, the Chemin de St Jacques, the Pass'Aran and the Chemin de la Liberté
  • The gites d'étape and refuges such as EylieEtang d'Araing, EstagnousMaison du ValierFerme de Rouze
  • The weather - when it's sunny, it's glorious, when it rains, it really rains, and there's a pleasing lack of wind, except when there's a big storm passing through.  Mountain weather at its best!
  • The food!
