Foix is in a great position for any explorer of the vast wilderness that is Southern France. Situated in Ariege, a district of the Midi-Pyrenees, huge mountains frame the region which is bordered by Spain to the South and Languedoc-Rousillon to the East. Foix is a fantastic place to take a driving holiday or for anyone interested in religious or ancient history. Car hire in Foix is readily available to aid your transfer from the airport and your exploration of this remote region. Hiring a car in Foix will give you immediate access to the entire Areige area along with the wider Midi-Pyrenees expanse.
On driving to Foix, You'll probably first recognise your destination by the Chateau Foix which is a castle built on a plateau overlooking the town. You'll most likely arrive via Toulouse Airport which is around 90km North of Foix - about an hours drive if you're hiring a car in Foix. You can explore the whole of the region via the useful E9 North/South or the E80 East/West if you rent a car in Foix.
Many tourists head straight for the Old Town or the Botanical Gardens and those that have come to drive in the region will often head for Carcassonne, Toulouse or even Andorra.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
