Argut-Dessous

Argut-Dessous is a typical, small, mountain village, with several walking trails, a wash house and drinking troughs for domestic animals.

Situated 4 km from St Béat, Argut-Dessous is also only a douzen km from Mourtis ski station and 15 km from Spain. Divede into 3 hamlets the commune is spread over more than a km.
