Welcome to my corner of paradise...
Since 1994 I have been living in one of the most beautiful and least populated areas of France, the department of Ariège in the central Pyrenees. It straddles the geographic dividing line between the Mediterranean landscape and climate of the Languedoc and the lush Gascony. It's a fantastic place to come to on vacation, though as is the case with most mountain regions, living here is not for everyone. However, it's much easier since the internet came along. (Ariège has nearly 100% broadband coverage, including an extensive fiber optic network.)
I launched this site in 1997 so that other people could discover this beautiful and unusual region. I hope it will tempt you to come and explore it.
