La Forge Ancienne dates back to the 16th Century and as the name suggests was indeed the local Forge. Nestled amongst the rolling french countryside and sitting on 10 acres of private grounds.
We have also just opened a small and friendly livery. With newly constructed large stables and acres of wonderful pasture land, what better way to sit in the sun over looking these beautiful animals!
The Historic town of Aurignac is a 10 minute drive away and can provide wonderful Boulongeries, Patisseries, Bars, Restaurants and also has a Bank and Post Office.
Within 50 min drive from Toulouse Airport and 1hr 30 from Pau Airport, both offering car hire.
We are situated close to the Stunning Pyrenees Mountains. The Mountains and Spain can be reached within 1 hours drive from us. Our closest ski resort is only a 50 minute drive away so if Skiing in the morning and lying on the Beach in the afternoon sounds a great itinerary then come and stay with us!
The Atlantic & Mediterranean coast 2 hrs drive.
