La Grange de Gustou is situated in south of France, in the Pyrenees mountains and the department of Ariege, 120 Km from international airports of Toulouse or Carcassonne. It is one and half hour drive passing the cities of Saint-Girons, Oust and Erce. From the village of Erce a 2 km unpaved passable road climb to the house through meadows and forest.
It is at 3000ft elevation on a South facing hill enjoying a superb panoramic view toward the high Pyrenean peaks as well as the Garbet river valley and the village of Erce below.
The interior of the house has been renovated for maximum comfort: a terrace and veranda have been added to the original building so as to be able to admire the view any time of day or season.
Absolute peace is assured. Surrounding the house you can enjoy an entire mountain of land with forest and meadows. There are no neighbors or noise other than the sounds of cow bells and the falling water from a nearby torrent.
Gustou was the previous owner of the house. He is now over 90 years old. He used to bring his cows up to the fertile pastures on terraced land nearby the barn for the summer. The barn was located on a rocky promontory as at that time hay or dung was carried by men and it was easier to bring hay up the slope and dung down the slope. Nowadays Merens ponies have replaced the cows on the summer pastures, but the newly restorated barn constructed of granite, wood and slate has retained its original aspect.
Here the air is more transparent and we drink the pure water of our mountain.
It is a paradise for lovers of tranquility: no neighbors or noise except the noise of the torrents and the bells of the cows.
CAUTION: In front of the house, a small stream cascading down in a pond with trouts. This pond is not protected. It is therefore recommended to monitor young children who cannot swim.
