Aspet is located on the borders of three valleys, surrounded by three rivers. These valleys are a paradise for paragliders, fishermen, walking enthusiasts and cyclists, not to mention winter sports activities thanks to the resort of Le Mourtis 30 minutes away.
Aspet is 20 minutes from St-Gaudens, 1 hour from Toulouse, 30 minutes from Ariège and Hautes-Pyrénées and 50 mn from Spain.
A few lines of history ...
Aspet was an important seigneury from the end of the 10th century, with Raymond-At as its first lord in the year 1068. Another lord Arnaud-Raymond de Coarraze fought in Orléans alongside Joan of Arc in 1428.
The last Lord is named Henry III of Navarre, the future King Henry IV. The whole is then attached to the Crown in 1606.
The Arénoulat thus dates in part from this period when a wealthy bourgeois Ramond Latour lived in the northeast wing of the house, bordering the ditches of the city's fortifications, acquired and attached to the house in 1776, the backyard of which constitutes a remnant. The "rue des fossés (street of ditches)" bordering the house is aptly named ...
During the Revolution, the deputy and mayor of Aspet Jean-Pierre Latour will enlarge his house to extend it on rue Gambetta. In 1934 his descendants reduced the house to make way for rue Gambetta, it is the house as we know it today with its pergola.
Jean-Pierre Latour, an ardent defender of citizens' rights and fighting against the abuse of royal power, was one of the deputies elected to represent Comminges at the Estates General convened by Louis XVI King of France and Navarre, held at Versailles in 1789. These Estates General will lead, among other things, to the Declaration of the Human and Citizen Rights ...
In the 19th century, his grandson Jean Pierre Bernard Armand Latour, better known under the name of Armand Latour (Aspet college, the street of the municipal library) ceded all his property to the town of Aspet to develop public education and Charitable works.
Since that time, the owners have succeeded each other with different names, but the Arénoulat has always remained in my family 😊.
