Tourné is a fine maison de maitre in the Artillac valley, built by the Vicomte de Bellissens in 1858, reputedly for his maitre d’affaires. Hence, it is a genuine maison de maitre-built by a noble for his right hand man . With extensive gardens, woodland and river access, the house has three floors with a large adjoining activity studio and separate gite. The house, studio and gite are available for family holidays, private retreats and group events . The valley is an area of protected environment in the heart of the Parc naturel régional des Pyrénées ariégeoises. In the park there is virtually no industry (1%) , the population is sparse 1 person for every 2km and consequently traffic minimal, with very few cars passing the House. There are many walks, for all levels of fitness, of astounding beauty that can be made directly from the house. Beautiful wild flowers in spring, stunning walks in summer cooled by the forest. The voie verte is a recently opened 42km route reserved for cyclists and walkers running from St Girons and Foix accessed at Castelnau Durban and is wonderful at all times of year. In the house you will find guides and maps with local attractions and walks.With no pollution the River runs clear and the nights sky bright for star gazers. Many local activities and historic sites are under 3O mins drive. There is lots to see and do in the area and the House provides a very calm and tranquil base from which to experience the different flavours of the region.
