Wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful relaxing holiday in this lovely spacious gite with extensive grounds and a gorgeous swimming pool. Shared with two other families – plenty of room for all of us. We all enjoyed time by the swimming pool and eating in the fabulous outdoor area which offered plenty of shade when we needed it. With a supermarket just up the road it was easy to keep stocked up on beer, wine and other essentials! The gite is ideally located for sightseeing but also a great place to just chill out. Mark was always available to help if we had any problems and offer suggestions of local attractions to visit. Our favourites were the underground river – travelling on a boat through the caves and Sequoia Vertigo – a tree top high wire adventure. We had a barbeque most evenings and it was great to turn the music up with no worry of disturbing any neighbours. We played table tennis and had darts and pool tournaments. All in all a brilliant holiday... already looking forward to next time. We returned to the U.K. totally refreshed and relaxed. Thank you so much Mark for helping us to achieve this.

Relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a truly wonderful and relaxing holiday. All of us, aged 2-54, had a lovely time using the gite to relax in and as a base to explore the surrounding area. There was so much to keep us all entertained. The gite and gardens are beautifully kept and everybody was comfortable there. We shall definitely be returning and will recommend it to our friends and family.

Tour de France - here we come!!

  • 5 of 5

Found this Gite travelling across France on a cycling holiday with a group of cycling enthusiasts.

Perfectly placed to go exploring the Ariege on many wonderful cycling routes.

The accommodation was excellent for our needs and we were able to relax in the peace and quiet of this wonderful renovated Farmhouse of an evening playing pool, ping pong and generally having a very chilled time.

Would recommend to any cycling groups to look this place up and use as a base for exploring.

Hope to return again – next time with a larger group.

Great Party Venue

  • 5 of 5

Had a great birthday with friends and family at La ferme. Mark offered us use of the function room for my birthday night, and the facilities were superb.

Everyone had a great time., and the weather was also on our side so we were able to also make use of the BBQ and the pool facilities the next day.

Mark was very generous ensuring we had everything we needed to make it a very special occasion.

Certainly a birthday to remember.

Hope to be back for the 40th !!

Wonderfully Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay if you need to take yourself away from everything, but still with lots to see and do.

My family had a great time relaxing by the pool, having meals together in the Farmhouse kitchen or outside in the Alfresco area.

The children were never bored either – having loads of secure space to run around in and explore with games, pool, ping pong and the use of Marks wonderful cinema room to watch a DVD on our only wet day in the week.

The pool was cleaned daily by Mark , who was discreetly available should we have needed anything .

We went for some lovely walks & used the bikes to go for rides - it was certainly a break for us all – Thankyou – would recommend to anyone I know.

Prachtige hoeve in een rustige omgeving

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben een fantastische vakantie gehad samen met onze familie en vrienden. Deze locatie is perfect voor een grote groep. De hoeve biedt voldoende privacy door de vele kamers en badkamers.

Tevens is het een goede uitvalsbasis voor een daguitstap naar Lourdes of Andorra bvb en nadien kan je nog tot rust komen aan het zwembad.

Op het overdekte terras hebben wij mooie momenten beleefd en meerdere malen de barbecue gebruikt.

De gastheer, Mark, was zeer joviaal en heel subtiel aanwezig.

In de buurt waren er enkele gezellige restaurantjes, waar we lekker hebben gegeten.

Kortom, deze hoeve is een echte aanrader voor grote families!
