With its colourful façades and lively pedestrian streets, Ax has a certain character of its own. Ideally located at the crossroads of several valleys, Ax is a perfect starting base to explore the surrounding countryside

  • Tasting a “Patte d'ours”, a delicious pastry from the Arièges, while soaking your feet in one of the free thermal pools in the town centre

  • Mingling with the locals on market day (Tuesdays and Thursdays).
