Goutets Summer Pastures

Perched at 1,450m in altitude in the Pic des Trois Seigneurs corrie
above the Arac valley, GOUTETS*** is a protected site and one of
the most remarkable summer pasture hamlets in the Couserans.
The numerous orris and huts, characterised by unusual dry stone
architecture, are testament to pastoral activity dating very far back.
Still today, sheep and nearly 200 cows spend the four summer months
grazing freely across the pastures.
Once you get up to this wild place, where precious water flows
from the plentiful springs, you’ll never want to leave!!
