Elevage de chevaux de MérenwOur Mérens horse farm is situated at 600m elevation in the small farming village (pop. 192) of Lasserre at the foot of the Ariège Pyrenees. We have 2 gîtes and 2 bed and breakfast guest rooms that can altogether accommodate 28 people.

You will be greeted at the farm by a member of the Savignol family: Colette, a spry 80, who is the guardian of our horses and for whom each one is her protegé whose story she knows inside out.... Christine the hostess and decorator of our rooms, Jean Louis the man of the moment or Amandine our daughter.

The houses face full south at the edge of the village. They enjoy a panoramic view of the rolling foothills and the high snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees.
