The Ariège has a hilly landscape with fields and meadows in the northern part. The south is characterised by rough nature and beautiful views of the high peaks of the Pyrenees covered with eternal snow which can be seen from the park! Besides the lovely scenery the area is littered with interesting historical sites such as medieval castles, citadels and fortified towns, known as bastides. Below the surface underground rivers and caves complete a truly adventurous part of France, ready to be explored. Many restaurants serve gastronomic local plates.
In front of the Château lies the second largest swimming pool of the Ariège, 700m2! Surrounded by terraces and grass, parasols and loungers. For kids there is a separate 40m2 pool with a small slide. The main swimming pool has two slides. Changing rooms, showers and toilets are nearby in the Château. Children without a swimming qualification must be accompanied by their parents and wear bathing wings or the like.
Next to the Château two tennis courts, surrounded by high cypresses, await your play. Reservation to be made at the reception. Rackets and balls are available at the (snack)bar.
Tennis shoes must be worn.

Hiking and Biking
The beautiful nature around Château Cazalères can be enjoyed by either taking a walk or to get on your bike. The variety is astonishing; one moment the plain fields with sunflowers unfold themselves, the next you are pedalling to the top of a hill. Once reached, another breathtaking landscape shows itself. For more information, please ask at the reception.
Kids club in action
During the high season several activities are organised. The kids will soon find their way to the animation team.
Playground for the youngest
Under the supervision of their parents, toddlers can climb and play around.
Table tennis, a trampoline and a (well insulated) disco in the caves of the Château, together with
a billiard table inside and a reading table near the huge open fire place, complete the facilities.
Don’t want to cook? Our restaurant serves excellent food at a reasonable price and a special menu for the kids. You rather prefer a “quick bite”? You can order “take-away’s” at the snack bar at the swimming pool or in the restaurant and enjoy eating it in your holiday-home.
For opening times, menus etc. please see the information near the reception and the Château.
The staff at the reception-desk informs you about all the ins-and outs of the park, they sell tokens for the laundry machines and you can buy postcards, keytags, t-shirts and wifi-time. Tourist information and ideas for trips can also be obtained.
