Le Petit Ermite
Gîtes in Cathar country
At the gîte and on parts of our terrain of about 2000 m2 you will of course have WiFi reception.

In the village there is an epicerie within walking distance. Here you can do small errands and get bread. In the vicinity are a supermarket, swimming facilities, restaurants, etc.

After short walk, about fifty meters down the street, you will find an entrance to the Fôret des Fanges, a primeval forest of more than 1,000 hectares previously owned by the French royal family.

From the gîtes you have a direct view on Château de Puilaurens, which you can also visit.

Once a week there is a pizza-baker in the village where pizzas are prepared on a wood-fired oven.

There is also a café and restaurant in the center of the village.

There is a lot to see in the area and we have an information folder in which all kinds of sights are described, which contain not only many entertainment tips, but also references to mysterious places to visit. Hotspots are marked. This way you can plan a day activity that suits you and you don't have to miss anything. Of course we can give you tips and answer any questions.
Our environment offers excellent opportunities for those who seek inspiration, like to be creative or like to delve into their personal well-being.

Those who wish can also participate in activities on our site. Examples of this are painting and writing courses provided by Monique. Take a look at the "inspiring activities" on this site for more information. An "afternoon fun" is also possible.

You can swim in the clear mountain water of the rivers in this area, which the locals also enjoy. About seven kilometers away is a waterpark that is opened during the summer and twenty kilometers away you will find a nature park with landscaped nature baths.
