Travelling in the Ariège has its definite charm. The way with charming places is that sometimes you can become enchanted by the places, and the people you come across. Montségur today has 80 inhabitants, there are some few places to stay, of them I believe three are listed in Tripadvisor. Upon arriving we discovered that two of those were closed. Let me give you a bit of advice, if you truly want to visit Montségur you should allow yourself the luxury of waking up to the landscape, the distinct light, the fresh sharp air, the sound of the brooks and birdsong in such a sleeping beauty of a village. No doubt there are alternatives like travelling from nearby city centres, but establish in your mind and heart where you truly want to be. Janos and Ragnhild moved to Montségur in 2005, they decided to stay. And opened up a small Auberge (or is it Chambres d`Hotes?) - with four rooms dedicated to the rest and rehabilitation of weary travellers. It is not only clean, an adjective I believe travellers in rural France will appreciate, and above all, unfortunately, suspect - but also serene. You could probably get more luxury at breakfast, but I honestly doubt it - but an effect of the place you have voluntarily visited is suggestive you could live on air alone, don´t do it, eat breakfast, especially if you are going up the pog (or pack one, there´s a kiosk in the village). I can only compare our experience with the rooms, facility and other features of a stay in a room, hotel or not, from other places we travelled through, and none of them came near our one night in Montségur, at Le Pelerin. My only regret is that I did not book a week, and I honestly and sincerely mean that. With the Simons you have the advantage of going to a hostel were the proprietors live in Montségur for most of the time, most of the hostels, there are few, were closed due to some reason or another, one of them definitely travel. Establish contact well ahead and be sincere about your needs and expectations.
