Our home is rich in history, a former horn comb factory from centuries past, and we live with our feet in the water. Since last winter, we have been welcoming travelers to our gîte "du chant de la rivière", and in summer we live here with family and friends from time to time. The 150-meter garden allows us to accommodate a tent with two or three people in a bivouac area. We're warm, friendly people who like to get to know each other, and we're looking forward to spending a few evenings together in an exceptional and unique setting, which some say is "magical". The glorious experiences we've had in the gîte give us confidence that we can share this place, which takes you out of time and everyday life.
You'll be lulled to sleep by the "song of the river", where you can watch birds such as kingfishers, squirrels and dragonflies galore, and hear the rooster crow, for that's what the countryside is all about (but he sings just fine, don't worry). From the bivouac area, you can walk through the forest to the Roquefort waterfalls, 2.5 km away. The coolness of the night will make you forget for a while the ordeal of the heat of the cities and will allow you to spend excellent nights. The village's elevated position gives you a bird's eye view of the Pays d'Olmes. Sightseeing and cultural attractions are close at hand, such as the extraordinary garden at Lieurac (2kms walk on footpaths) or the Neylis mill, 600 meters away. The garden is well-kept and you can use the table and barbecue.
The plot is easily accessible for a car or small van. You'll only have to walk about 60 meters to the garden. You can pitch your tent wherever you like in the garden. There's plenty of shade depending on the time of day.
The sanitary facilities
A dedicated bathroom is located in the house. As for the toilets, they are shared with the house in which we live and we ask that they remain in a perfect state of cleanliness. The bathroom is equipped with hot water, a walk-in shower, a washbasin and a bidet.
The microwave oven can be used. Electrical outlets are in the veranda. It is possible to charge your telephone and lend an extension cord.
Hiking, cycling or horse-riding, Cathar castles and sites such as Montségur, geological curiosities such as the intermittent river at Fontestorbes or the underground river at Labouiche, numerous caves such as the one at Mas d'Azil, the Comtale town of Foix or the medieval town of Mirepoix, Lac de Montbel and its water sports activities or the exceptional village of Carla Bayle with its lake, you'll be spoilt for choice. We are ambassadors for Ariège! As for the bivouac's front door, water and hiking are the main activities.
We are very respectful of the environment, and of people. We only accept travelers who share these values. You may come across us on your way to the sanitary facilities.

A haven of peace, a corner of paradise in the greenery, we were lucky enough to be the first to enter this area to plant our ⛺️. Lulled by the sound of the river and welcomed with incredible warmth by Nicole and Gérard and...Roméo. A delight. What's more, the site is ideally located in Ariège, not far from Aude or Spain. Breakfast is varied and generous, with homemade jams, fruit, tea, coffee and a good ????. There are many beautiful walks to be made around without having to take the car. In short, a wonderful experience and a delightful encounter. Ps: the photos perfectly reflect the care taken by Nicole and Gérard to ensure that travelers have a good time.
