Massat - a picturesque mountain village

Massat is a typical mountain village of the Ariège. Its picturesque setting, in the sparsely populated Courserans region of the Pyrénées, gives it a delightfully peaceful air. And, it makes it a perfect getaway spot for all who love the mountains and the bountiful wildlife that is found there. Small though it is today, the village was once much larger and was an important producer of butter and dairy products. The lush green pastures that surround it are still home to cattle in the summer months.

Heritage of Massat

With its long history, Massat, although apparently unassuming, has plenty of heritage. This includes its little church which has a lovely octagonal bell from the 15th century, the Tower of Laffont and many old houses built in the local style. Natural heritage is even more abundant, with lakes, mountain peaks and pastures.

Shops and amenities in the village

For a small village in one of the most rural and undiscovered parts of the region, Massat is actually rather well equipped. Don't expect to find hypermarkets, of course, but you will find village shops and services catering to most everyday needs. There's a grocer's, a mini market, post office, wine shop and a pharmacy, among others. You'll also be able to enjoy a couple of good bars and restaurants for when you want to dine out or simply socialise a little.
