Our stay at La Fermette, Generville was very relaxing and the property was well suited for our family (4 adults, 2 young children).
Inside the property was a good standard, comfortable bedrooms, well appointed kitchen and nice dining rooms and lounge. Well stock library and some books/games for the kids.
But outside is where the property excels. There is outdoor space to eat at the front and rear of the property - wonderful views out the front, cool shade at the back. Then there is the fantastic pool with summer kitchen including BBQ and pizza/log-fired oven. It made a great place to relax with the family and the views from the poolside stretched out all the way to the Pyrenees - beautiful!.
Sue and Terry are welcoming, friendly hosts and were really helpful - including doing a food shop for us before we arrived which made settling in a breeze. They have 4 chickens who roam free and provided us with a bounty of eggs. A jar of Sue's homemade jam, garden picked herbs and local fizz were also waiting for us on arrival.
The local area has plenty to enjoy - highlights were swimming and pedalos at Lac Montbel, visiting Mirepoix (which is lovely and has great places to eat/drink and a brilliant Monday market), Chateau Montsegur, the church in Vals (dug into the rock!) and the dinosaur museum at Esperaza.
There were a couple of bike we could use and these were great to get out for short rides and explore some of the smaller nearby settlements and viewpoints.
Would highly recommend for those looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday, away from it all and a pool to relax beside.
Thanks Sue and Terry!
My husband and I had a wonderful week in this gite close to Mirepoix. The gite is spacious, comfortable and well equipped with a covered terrace for eating dinner and you have the run of the gardens with table tennis, golf and darts to keep you busy. The pool is lovely and just the ticket for cooling off after a day of sightseeing. It is possible to walk to town over the fields, which was a relief as the road the gite is on is very busy. The hosts were extremely helpful and enthusiastic, lending us bikes when they discovered we enjoyed running in the sun. Great base to explore the Ariege.
