At the foot of the Pyrenees, and bordered by the Ariège River, Tarascon sur Ariège has all you could need for a fantastic countryside holiday.
Located at the point at which two glacier valleys meet, the climate and erosion have carved out hundreds of caves. These natural dwellings have served as shelters for prehistoric civilisations, especially those from the Magdalenian period.
The Medieval era has also left its mark in the shape of the fortified wall, the wooden bridge crossing the Ariège and the Faubourg Sainte Quitterie. The Château de Lacombe and the Chapelle Notre-Dame are also part of the historic heritage of Tarascon sur Ariège.
The proud medieval architecture and the powerful mountains lined up against the sky provide a contrast with the gentle countryside and climate. From April, the wolf park opens its doors, and these wild animals await you there. Why not get up close to the mountain countryside with a spot of caving, climbing, paragliding or, in winter, skiing, sledding and lots more besides.
All year round, hiking in this fantastic location is a real delight. And as a way of recovering after these long days spent walking, enjoying sports and exploring, how about a stop-off at a thermal spa or fitness centre?
The restful peace of the countryside contrasts sharply with the lively village and the gentle climate clashes with the imposing architecture. Tarascon sur Ariège has all sorts of great features, and the whole family will love your camping holiday here!
