La Maire is situated an hours’ drive south of Toulouse, in the beautiful Ariege region of France,
and is about 45 minutes from the base of the Pyrenees.

The Ariege is one of the least populated and unspoilt regions of France, where old traditions and farming techniques are
kept alive and the frantic pace of the 21st century seems a lifetime away. Small farms pepper the rolling fields, which
in the winter seem to sleep under gentle frosts, only to come alive in a blaze of colour with the summer sunflowers.

The nearest local town is Pamiers, which is 15 minutes drive away.
This small but lively market town has a large choice of independant shops, supermarkets and restaurants.
