In its flourishing times there were twenty adult men working on the farm, and the whole valley was deforested for potatoes, cabbage-fields and pastures for cows. Destroyed and rebuilt in the second Carline war (1870) it was gradually abandoned in 1950 like most of the isolated farms in the Pyrenees. A chain of coincidences – perhaps its unique location has to do with it – made sure the house didn't collapse. For the last two years I have been recovering the house and running it as a mountain-hut and a camping-place. All the basic needs (water, light, heating, sanitary) are available, but it is not a luxury hotel. The distance to the nearest village is 11km, in the kettle-shaped valley with several ecosystems according to the orientation: Beech Woods on the north side, Oakwood’s on the Southside, in between and on the heights pine forest, the recovered fauna, the silence of an eagle cry, the poetry of a red rock in the morning, an unexpected snowstorm in June, a never before seen orchid are the strengths and the luxury of Ardericó.
