The house is warm and cosy with a lovely wood burner and very well equipped kitchen. The location is superb, close to many superb market towns, scenic highlights, castles and other historic sites, with Spain, Andorra and the Mediterranean coast all close by. The village itself is quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended!

You are a 10 minute drive to Foix so it is close to amenities but you are in the country and so you take advantage of a real sense of peace, calm and tranquility. Just the odd tinkle of the bell of a mountain goat. The terrace is the real highlight here - a beautiful place to sit and relax. The open plan kitchen and living area is also great and spacious. Very well equipped with every piece of kit you could possibly need and the wifi is good too. All in all, a lovely place to stay.

                                                                                                      We were very impressed not only with the property but the location was ideal. Having been been on dozens of trips to France the location exceeded our expectations. It's convenient for Toulouse which easyjet have social flights times, (or ryanair Carcassonne). The med is about an hour, the Pyrenees not far and a host of wonderful towns nearby. The house itself is excellent. You can tell the owners have prepared it to their own standards not as a rental property (for instance the quality of beds, bedding and furniture) We were a party of 8 but the house can take 12 in 6 bedrooms comfortably so we had more than enough space. The neighbour Jean Christophe meets you on arrival who is a true gentleman. As long as you can speak franglais you'll be fine. He'll make sure that all is well during your stay. The pool is wonderful for families with steps one end and a secure cover. There is a barbeque around the pool area. The lawn is large for kids (and big kids) to run around and play. In summary a great home in a great location. Wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you to the owners who clearly love the house.
