About the property

Central heating, 3/4 bedrooms, bathroom, WC, sleeps 6+, fireplace, and more

At the foot of the Pyrénées and in the heart of the quiet friendly village of Tréziers. Spectacular panoramic mountain views from both wide sunny garden terrace, and bedroom balcony. The striking interior has luxury modern furniture and decor. The house is spacious with a large living room, three bedrooms plus roomy attic. There is ample space for a large family or group of friends.

The house is on the village square, with its pretty round fountain. On its garden side the living room and main bedroom enjoy stunning mountain views. The immaculate new fitted kitchen is fully equipped, as is the new white-tiled bathroom. Full central heating and a log fire makes it warm in winter. There is satellite TV, wi-fi broadband, and an audio and video library. The living room opens onto a large terrace with glazed roof - excellent for winter sun. In the summer there is a barbecue and alfresco dining. Its the perfect place to just relax and enjoy, or to use as a base for an active holiday. Specialist service for cyclists.

Cycling and cycle hire: Quiet country roads and amazing scenery. Wide choice of terrain to suit all abilities. Easy valley routes, rolling countryside or rewarding climbs. A year round road-riders paradise, suitable for novices, leisure cyclists and club riders. Ideal year round base for two wheel holidays, or club training camps. The village is on a car free cycle route to nearby market towns of Mirepoix and Chalabre.

Mountain biking from the doorstep – for the ambitious you have access to the largest area of marked off-road bike trails in the Pyrénées - graded to suit all riders. Choice of routes - easy riding (green) for the leisure cyclist, varied (blue & red) through to serious stuff (black) for the experienced off-road rider.

Cycling maps and guides are provided. Race quality road bikes plus mountain bikes for hire - family discounts - details on request - see the hire bike stable on owner's web-site link below.

Walking, swimming, riding, sailing, ski: There is excellent walking from the front door. It's also an ideal location for day walks in the Eastern Pyrenees. The GR10 long distance footpath passes nearby and links to the 'Sentier Cathar'. If you prefer gentle walking in the foothills there is plenty of choice too. Walking guides, maps and suggested routes are provided. Nearby Lac Montbel a (20 min drive) provides swimming and sailing. Horseriding is popular locally too. In winter the ski station of Mont d'Olms is an hours drive, with more ski options from Ax-les-Thermes.

Cathar castles, bastide towns, French markets: You can see the famous Chateau Montseguer from the house, and closer by, the jagged Chateau de Laguard is a local landmark. If you're into exploring historic Cathar castles and medieval towns then look no further. The nearest local market at Mirepoix with its medieval town square, is every Monday - great fresh local produce in season - with more markets on other days in nearby towns. The Canal du Midi is less than an hour away at Castlenaudry. A choice of good restaurants all within easy reach.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Treziers. The house was great and very well equipped. Not a

house for young children though. The view was spectacular. An ever-changing panorama. The

garden was really beautiful. Obviously lovingly cared for by the owner. It was close to many

charming villages but far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful. Next time we'll stay longer!

Fantastic views from this lovely village house

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a lovely autumn week in Treziers. The house is very comfortable, and the views breathtaking. It is well positioned, an easy drive into Mirepoix, and surrounded by countryside that is great for walks and cycling.

Bauhaus mit Paradiesgarten und Pyrenäenblick

  • 5 of 5

Um sich zu erholen und zu entspannen muss man das sehr schöne im Bauhausstil eingerichtete und mit allen Annehmlichkeiten ausgestattete Haus und den paradisischen Garten eigentlich gar nicht verlassen. Wir haben dort Ruhe gefunden und insbesondere den Garten genossen. Die Bank am Teich und die kleine Liegewiese hatten es uns bei schönstem Sommerwetter besonders angetan. Die Mahlzeiten können auf der großen Terasse eingenommen werden. Hier gibt es einen einmaligen, wunderschönen, freien und weiten Blick auf die Pyrenäen. Der kleine Ort Treziers ist beschaulich, hat einen sehr schönen Dorfplatz an dem sich das Ferienhaus befindet und bietet täglich außer Sonntag einen fahrbaren Baguette Service an. Die Gegend lädt zum wandern und radfahren ein. Die Ruine von Lagarde, der Markt am Montag in Mirepoix und die kleine Bar in Moulin Neuf sollte man unbedingt besuchen. Vielen Dank an Graeme für den überaus freundlichen und persönlichen Empfang im Ferienhaus.

Fabulous house in wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was bright, spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and very stylish. It had fantastic mountain views at the rear and traditional village square at the front. We loved taking in the former from the different terraces and the idyllic garden and enjoyed the square and passing village life from the bench at the front. The daily bread delivery was always fun. We walked, cycled and drove around using many of the suggestions provided by Graeme. Nearby Mirepoix, one of many lovely places, was a gem. Good restaurants and atmosphere. We loved it and we hope to return.

A Little Bit of Heaven...

  • 5 of 5

Really don't know how to start...but we will try...

At first, we were somewhat reluctant to pick a gite situated in a village with few amenities...this ultimately proved to be a blessing in several ways. NO crowds...none. Friendly neighbors...willing to chat, smile and share greetings. Make use of the daily bread van (about 10:00 or so) sure to avail yourself of some locally produced honey as well!

A spacious well appointed house, southern facing backyard...terraces...and the view, the view is best described both as breathtaking and soul soothing...excellent kitchen.

Our host (Graemme) was welcoming, getting us situated promptly...he met us with a sparkling Limoux and a warm smile.

Many interesting sites to see within easy driving distance...yet in the end we spent much of our time simply enjoying the quiet South of France village heart even as I write these words yearns to return.

The food, the markets, the selection of wines, Treziers, the Pyrenees...we've already made our deposit for next year.

Wish we were still there!

  • 4 of 5

The property is a fabulous base and in a wonderful location with easy access to a wide variety of places to visit. The interior is fresh and modern and the terrace a great place to eat, drink and talk any time of the day and well into the late evening. Views from the master bedroom are stunning. It was lovely to take a stroll in the garden and the pond frogs provided a constant soundtrack throughout our stay! The property would benefit from a second bathroom hence being rated 4 star and not 5.

The historic ridge top village of Tréziers is in rolling wooded countryside on the Aude / Ariège border, overlooking the river l'Hers, with the jagged ruins of Château Lagarde behind. Beyond are unbroken views along the high Pyrénées chain, with the famous Cathar castle of Montségur standing prominently below them. If you enjoy historic towns, markets, Cathar castles, lakes, forests, walking, riding, sailing, swimming, or simply enjoy sunshine and French countryside, we think you'll love Tréziers. For cyclists it's a year-round paradise. Less than an hour from the famous medieval fortress town of Carcassonne and its international airport, Tréziers is an ideal base from which to explore the Eastern & Central Pyrénées, with easy access to the mountains and winter skiing. Tréziers is uniquely located to explore some of France's best kept secrets. Limoux - famous for its sparkling wine - is the nearest large town, and for shopping the medieval market town of Mirepoix is just 9k away.

Other Activities: Cathar Castles, French markets, historic towns

Ski: Plateau de la Beille for cross country

Mont d'Olms for downhill
