Michelle and Eric press apples for juice from their organic orchard on their farm 3 km from Le Mas d'Azil. The camping pitches are among the apple trees. They also offer bed and breakfast accommodations in their house.

The 15 hectar domain of "Vergers du Sésame" lies along the Arize river, known for its excellent fishing, at 380 m altitude in the foothills of the Ariège Pyrenees. The nearest village is the Mas d'Azil 3 kms away; the prehistoric cave for which it is famous is 2 kms from our farm.

3In the immediate vicinity there are many walking trails, including the GR78 (also St James way), and the Arize river is favoured by trout fishermen.

In the autumn and winter you can sample our organic apple juice, the product of our traditionally-cultivated orchard containing 15 different old varieties of apple trees. You can also visit the neighboring farm a 5 minutes walk from us to admire the animals.

Opposite our farm is the picturesque Raynaude church whose architecture is very rare.
