The space

Situated at 600m altitude in the traditional mountain village of Biert, 5 minutes from Massat, and just 30 minutes from both St Girons and the beautiful historic town of Foix, Gite Esmeralda has a fully equipped kitchen, a large double bedroom and a pretty twin room. The comfortable sitting room has French windows which open onto a private garden and al fresco dining area, where the only sounds to disturb you are of the river flowing gently by, birdsong and evening crickets.

Standing on the bank of the river Arac, Gite Esmeralda is an ideal location from which to explore the many activities and sights popular in the region, including great walking, horse riding, mountain biking, prehistoric sites and more. We can even offer the more adventurous among you a professional mountain guide.

If you just want a lazy day, we have lots to do on site, with a games room, swimming pool, petanque court, barbecue and picnic areas and a large terrace by the river.

We are open all year round and offer home cooked meals in the evenings. We strive to use local and seasonal produce and are licenced to serve a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to our guests.

This is a convenient gite in the middle of Ariege, close to nature and not far from touristic spots. Michael helped us a lot (also with fire) and of course local tips, so even in the middle of the winter we felt like we're at home.

Our family really loved staying with Michael and Marcia in Biert for a week. It's a quaint little spot with a small river running through the back yard. We would highly recommend it is you are looking to relax in the Pyrenees. It's also not too far from several of the major desti…

The house is beautifully located by a river. Tastefully decorated mixing antique and contemporary style, it feels really cozy. We loved the garden area with swings where our 4 year old daughter spent a wonderful time. Michael is super helpful and friendly, he can advise of the m…

We had an excellent stay at Maison Esmeralda this summer. Our hosts Mick and Marcia were so accommodating, kind and helpful. Their two lovely children played with our children for hours in the plunge pool. In practical terms, the property is located beside quite a fast road, b…

We stayed at Gite Esmeralda for a week in early July with our 1 year old son. The gite is exactly how the photos show it. The weather was lovely, much cooler than the southern cities but bright and sunny at the same time. The gite is perfect for a one year old as there are gam…

La région est magnifique. La maison se trouve dans un beau cadre qui révèle sans doute toute sa splendeur en période estivale. Michael bien que discret, se soucie du bien-être de ses hôtes.

We have a small family and a lovely dog called Boyd who looks after our kids and keeps the cats in check. We spent our younger years travelling around the world a bit and then had careers in the UK before choosing a slower pace of life here, where we can spend much more time t…
