House "Poutore"

this house has been awarded the labels "Marque Parc" and "Gîte de Caractère"

and has three "stars" from "Gîtes de France"


Our holiday house “La Poutore” in St. Jean-du-Castillonnais is a romantic building on the outskirts of an old village in the Couserans (Departement Ariège). This traditional house, made of granite stone with a slate roof,

has been completely refurbished and modernized. The house and the village are situated on the Saint Jacob-Ariège route to Santiago de Compostella which is not so trodden as the others.


This traditional home is a romantic retreat for couples or families with children. There is a private garden which is gated and fenced, a pleasant place in which to relax and enjoy the grand view of the Bellongue Valley and the Central Pyrenees.

 You will find here everything you need for a successful holiday.


The area where our holiday home is situated is part of the Parc Naturel Régional Pyrénées Ariègeoises.
