Approaching Foix on the RN20 from Toulouse direction, leave RN20 before the tunnel with signs for Foix and Tarbes (D919). Continue along this road, past Leader Price supermarket on the left, garages on the right, through several sets of traffic lights, until you arrive at a large roundabout (bridge over the river!), where you turn right up the main street of Foix, cafés and Les Halles on the right, large car park on the left.

Stay in the right hand lane of traffic upto a much smaller roundabout (with statue) where you turn left, with Hotel de Police on the left. Continue up the road, (D421) left at the traffic lights, up past a Catholic Church on the left, turning left again past the church (very small roundabout) with signs for Prat d`Albis.

Continue on this road for about 7 kms, past the villages of Raygnac and Reins, negotiating a number of hairpin bends and a cattle grid,the road getting more and more interesting(!), until just past a blind right hand bend you see the sign for Cumminges on the left (exactly 1.6 kms past cattle grid).

Go down the track, round two hairpin bends, continue past a left fork (do not take!), then round a left hand bend you come to barn, take the track behind the barn (left hand side). The cottage is about 100 mtrs on the right - we`ll be around to meet you.

Look forward to meeting you here!
