Better than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property literally steps from the mid evil square of Mirepoix. The location couldn't be better with a Carrefour express just a block or so, a butcher almost across the street and many charming restaurants and shops in the square. The property is exactly as the photos show. It is extremely well equipped, very comfortable and immaculately clean, We were 2 couples who stayed for one week and the accommodations and layout of the house were perfect. Each couple had thier own floor - each with beautiful, large bedroom and bath. We were slightly concerned about only having street parking, but there was always plenty of parking places very near. Josey met us and was delightful and very helpful. We recommend this property wholeheartedly!

Lives up to all expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property is in an ideal location just steps from the square. We were greeted by Josie who was warm and welcoming and available if needed. The house itself has three stories and while the steps are many they are small and worth the climb! The rooms are as shown and we were delighted with the beds. There is plenty of room and we were very content. We appreciated having washer/dryer available and the wifi worked well. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. You won't regret this accommodation or the village of Mirepoix as a destination. We have been to many regions in France and this was a highlight, despite the poor weather. As someone said to us on market day, the spirit in this place cannot be matched. We stayed for a week and used it as a home base to explore each day. It's an easy day trip to the caves (south of Foix and really worth seeing), to Carcassonne (loved the castle), the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. Thank you Vincent and Josie!

Wonderful house - great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful month in this house in the ancient bastide town on Mirepoix.

We were warmly welcomed by Josie, the housekeeper and the owner's parents, who helped us settle in. The house is spacious, spread over three floors, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The bottom floor consists of the entry hall, a fabulous kitchen and a comfortable lounge room. The dining room table would easily seat ten people. There is a delightful terrace garden off the kitchen which would be great in warm weather. The bedrooms and bathrooms on the second and third floors are extremely spacious and comfortable and the heating throughout the house is excellent.

Parking is easy and free nearby and the famous enough Mirepoix square is lie rally on the doorstep.

Booking through Vincent the owner was simple and he responds promptly to emails. The house has loads of information about the area and there is a tourist information office in the square.

Mirepoix is a wonderful base to visit wonderful sights all around.

Throughly recommend this marvellous house

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us had a fabulous stay at this property. The owners had someone to meet us on our arrival and then personally met us on our departure. Mirepoix and the surrounding area has lots of things to do and see and many restaurants to try. The Monday market allowed us to buy lots of wonderful fresh produce to take back to the property and put the great kitchen to use. We particularly loved having breakfast in the outdoor terrace. We would be more than happy to recommend this house to others.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house - the owners were there to welcome us and to show us around the house. Everything was spotless and as described - perhaps even better than described. The location is wonderful - literally just steps away from the square in Mirepoix. We enjoyed Mirepoix itself and the surrounding towns that we visited. The castle and museum at Foix, Castlenaudary and a trip on the Canal du Midi, the villages of Camon and Leran. There is lots to do and see within short driving distances from Mirepoix. We would happily recommend this house to others.

Estancia inolvidable

  • 5 of 5

Magnífica casa a escasos metros de la plaza medieval de Mirepoix. La propiedad tiene el carácter y la solera de una casa antigua, pero con todas las comodidades que el viajero moderno desea en sus vacaciones. Las fotografías corresponden exactamente a lo que encuentras al llegar allí. El trato con los dueños ha sido exquisito; son gente educada y con buen gusto. También la atención de Josy, que es quien enseña la casa y está pendiente de que todo esté a gusto de los inquilinos. Perfectamente comunicada, con comercios a dos pasos, y muy cerca de cafeterías y restaurantes. Impecablemente limpia y acogedora. ¡Y qué decir de Mirepoix! La catedral de San Mauricio, su maravillosa plaza porticada, el mercado nocturno y la fiesta del mejillón, el mercado de brocantes del domingo y el gran mercado de los lunes... Una experiencia inolvidable, que aconsejamos y que sin duda repetiremos.
