VILLA MAISON D'ARTISTES - 2ND: 2 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 6

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Saint-Felix-de-Tournegat - Domaine de Montagnac

Two apartments sleeping up to 12 (6 each); ground floor suitable for weddings

Full of character and wooden beams, the Maison d'Artistes has two apartments, each for 2-6 people, available separately or together. Renovated to a very high standard, each apartment has two bedrooms, one bathroom (1st floor: bath/shower; 2nd floor: shower), a fully-fitted kitchen, living room, sofa bed & satellite TV. 1st floor = 75 sq. metres; 2nd floor = 70 sq. metres.

Guests in both apartments have shared use of the spectacular Grande Salle (Jotul fireplace, chandelier, large comfortable sofa/armchairs and 4-metre oak dining table) and the fully-fitted Grande Cuisine. This makes a magnificently spacious holiday home of 415 sq m (or 4500 sq ft) - much more space than you will find in most gites.

A large terrace looks out over fields and woods - ideal for hot summer evenings. You’ll have unrestricted access to the shared swimming pool and grounds...and to our large snooker table.

The Maison d'Artistes is one of 4 entirely self-contained houses at the Domaine de Montagnac.

Spacious and luxurious Grande Salle: Guests in both apartments have the right to use the Grande Salle and Grande Cuisine, at no additional cost. As the photos show, these are wonderful spaces that transform your self-contained apartment accommodation into a huge house. Luxuriously furnished, with chandeliers, large sofas and armchairs, Jotul wood burning stove, widescreen TV...and a stunning 4 metre dining table (perfect for up to 20 people). The Grande Cuisine is fully equipped with a 5-burner cooker, gas and electric ovens, microwave, dishwasher, and large fridge/freezer (with icemaker).

Need still more space?: If more space is needed, there are other houses and apartments available on the estate, up to a total of 22 bedrooms – enough for most extended families or holiday groups. If you would like to reserve the entire estate just let us know!

If your aim is to find absolute peace/calm (even isolation), you may be well advised not to stay at the Domaine de Montagnac during July or August. Understandably, in the peak holiday season we are likely to have people staying in one of the other houses/apartments. For most people, meeting new people/friends in a relaxing informal setting (and children meeting and playing with other children) adds to the fun and enjoyment of a family holiday in such a wonderful place!

Business seminars?: The Domaine de Montagnac is an ideal location for relaxed and focused residential business seminars. All of the spaces described can be made available, plus a separate dedicated seminar room. Full catering can be arranged, either by our local caretaker (an accomplished cook) or from a local caterer. Please email us for more details.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

'Just to let you know that we had a great week at Montagnac. Really like what you've done with the house; the standard of decoration, fittings & utensils are far superior to what you normally expect at rented accommodation. STEVE.' ......... 'Good morning Mister Martin, Your house, in France, is very fine and our flat was very nice and comfortable. Our holiday was very beautiful. Many thanks to you, your wife and Christina for your kindness. Our dream is to come back one day in St. Felix de Tournegat! PAOLO, DANIELA e MATTEO.' ......... 'We greatly enjoyed our stay at Montagnac - wonderful house, good views. Christina was very helpful. The area is great for walking and kayaking, we managed trips down the Hers river and Tom and Sam did the slalom course outside Foix. Finally, wonderful for me was the puppet festival at Mirepoix (as a sometime puppet maker and storyteller myself). A lovely unspoilt region - we hope to come back. Many thanks. SARAH, TOM AND FAMILY, AND FRIENDS.

The Domaine de Montagnac is a remarkable place. Situated in a quiet and beautiful (but not remote) part of the Ariege in southwest France, with rolling hills all around, it is an ideal base for a relaxing rural holiday. As well as the local village (St Felix de Tournegat) being classified as a National Monument, there are amazing panoramic views of the Pyrenees mountain range – close enough for skiing or high altitude walks. With tourism and cultural attractions all over the region, and civilization (and, so, shops!) just a 15 minute drive away, there are very few holiday locations that can compare. Delights such as Mirepoix and Limoux are on the doorstep, as are the Cathar castles including Foix and Montsegur. For those wanting the sea, the Mediterranean and the famous town of Collioure are just 2 hours away.

Ski: There are several ski resorts within easy driving distance. While not as grand (or expensive!) as the Alps, all local ski resorts in the Pyrenees have a good variety of skiing in lovely surroundings.

The nearest ski resort, les Monts D'Olmes, is a 45 minute drive away. The larger resort of Ax-les-Thermes (also has thermal baths & a casino, is 90 minutes drive away.

Downhill « Ski de Piste » resorts:

Les Mont d’Olmes (1500- 2115 m / 18,5 kms of pistes)

Ax les 3 Domaines (1400 - 2400 m / 75 kms of pistes)

Guzet (1100 -2100 m / 40 kms of pistes)

Ascou Pailhères (1500 - 2000 m / 20 kms of pistes)

Mijanes Donezan (1530 - 2000 m / 9 kms of pistes)

Goulier Neige (1500 - 2000 m / 5 kms of pistes)

Cross-country « Ski de Fond » resorts:

Plateau de Beille (1800 -2000 m / 75 kms of pistes)

Domaine du Chioula (1240 - 1650 m / 60 kms of pistes)

Etang de Lers (1300 - 1615 m / 30 kms of pistes)

Notes:
Guests in both apartments have the right to use the Grande Salle and Grande Cuisine, at no additional cost. As the photos show, these are wonderful spaces that transform your self-contained apartment accommodation into a huge house. Luxuriously furnished, with chandeliers, large sofas and armchairs, Jotul wood burning stove, widescreen TV...and a stunning 4 metre dining table (perfect for up to 20 people). The Grande Cuisine is fully equipped with a 5-burner cooker, gas and electric ovens, microwave, dishwasher, and large fridge/freezer (with icemaker). With its beams and wooden floors, the Domaine de Montagnac was built before soundproofing was invented. Because of this, sound (eg walking on floorboards) can carry between the 1st floor and 2nd floor apartments. While the rugs help, for many this is part of the appeal and character of staying in a renovated house.
