Rieumes is a beautifully restored 15th century house, 50km south of Toulouse; it has spectacular views across rolling hills of the Ariege. The house is packed with historical detail yet it provides all the modern facilities you would want from a holiday home. The English owners live in the house but offer it for exclusive use in July and August. The house includes the main atrium hallway with an oak staircase going to the upper floors. There is an open plan kitchen and dining area and an 80sq.m sitting room with natural stone floors. Outside is a cabana with an open fireplace, a spacious poolside area that leads on to the swimming pool from where you can watch the magnificent sunsets as you swim. Rieumes is positioned beside the Pyrenees with all its cycling, hiking and water sports, surrounded by Cathar castles, and on the edge of the Languedoc Roussillon; it offers something for everyone and is the perfect place for a family holiday.

A very warm and friendly welcome by Philippa was a great start to the holiday. A sympathetically restored house with original features but also every modern facility you may wish for. A generous pool with stunning views across the local countryside. Bread delivered daily if required, which was a lovely start to the day. It was particularly hot during our stay, so additional free-standing fans would have been beneficial. I'm sure we will return. B
Fabulous family relaxation
We spent a blissful week at Rieumes as a group of 3 families in August 2017. The house was beautiful throughout and had so many lovely details. Everything had been thought of. The kids loved their ‘dorm’ room and football table. We made full use of the outdoor terrace for all our meals and enjoyed barbecues and dinner at sunset.
The pool was glorious. We were grateful for the pool alarm with the kids.
We had the best time, completely switching off and relaxing. Our holiday here combined well with a great few nights in Toulouse for a contrast to the peace of Rieumes.
Thank you Philippa for being such a welcoming host. If we are ever back in South East France we would love to stay again.
Blissful holiday in this gorgeous property
My husband, our son and I spent 3 weeks at Maison Rieumes last September. The gite is fabulous - huge living area, fab kitchen, really comfortable beds and great outdoor space with a beautiful pool. The owner Philippa was so welcoming and really helpful. We fell in love with this place and the Ariege region and will most definitely return.
Perfect Venue for Large Family Gathering
Very attractive and large property in a suberb rural setting. House was clean and very well equiped with most rooms ensuite a bonus. The pool had a super view, perfect for watching the sun go down over the distant hills. We loved the local walks in the sunflower fields and the spectacular views of the pyrenees. Kids enjoyed the caves, the high ropes courses locally and the pool! Would recommend to others without hesitation.
Magnifique bâtisse hyper fonctionnelle et conviviale au calme avec vue splendide + accueil excellent
Nous étions 4 familles dont 7 enfants et avons adoré notre séjour à Rieumes: maison très spacieuse, jusqu’à avoir une table de Ping pong dans le salon! Magnifique piscine, cuisine très fonctionnelle, jeux en quantité. Les enfants ont dormi dans un grand et beau dortoir. Les parents avaient chacun leur chambre + Sdb. Manquait juste un lit double pour un couple. Philippa nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de bienveillance et était disponible mais toujours discrète. Nombreuses sorties possibles mais nous sommes beaucoup restés à profiter du lieu.
Une de nos meilleures location de vacances que nous recommandons vivement.
