Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

The house itself is presented quite beautifully and is on such a wonderful scale - the size of the rooms and the height of the ceilings - and so creates quite an impression. There is everything you could want in the house as well in terms of facilities with British TV for those of us who might want to simply lounge on the sofa for an evening or two. The views and surrounding countryside are terrific and it is so very easy to find somewhere wonderful to eat locally - with Mirepoix and Carcassonne only a relatively short drive away. I can't recommend it highly enough as it is a great place to stay.




Spacious house and grounds renovated to high standard. Fabulous views and sunsets. Lovely pool. Peaceful. Everything well organised. Short drive to either Salles sur l'Hers or Belpech for bread, butcher & mini mart. Butcher in Belpech is brilliant. Mirepoix is lovely, loads of restaurants. Highly recommended.




What you have both created there is a gem, one that many of us aspire to. The countryside is both beautiful and unspoilt dotted with many historic towns and villages that make it a great region to explore. Add to this the (for France) highly affordable quality wines and food and you have a winning formula. I am as you know a winter sports fan, so the nearness of the Pyrenees is also a fantastic feature, but in the Summer as well as in winter. Looking forward to the next visit.




We had a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing time. The house was incredibly spacious and very comfortable. The views to the Pyrenees were awesome. Highly recommended
