Self catering mirepoixWhat our guests have to say about us

“This was our second stay at this lovely pool side villa, just as nice this year as last. The house and pool are well looked after and very clean. The pool is a perfect size for a proper swim and the surrounding garden makes it really special. Having visited the larger towns such as Carcassone and Foix last year this time we travelled the back roads to see some of the smaller Bastides and also went for a couple of the walks mentioned in the booklet that is available in the house. On clear days the views from the terrace are lovely and if you are interested in raptors there are some great birds to be see (take binoculars). Would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit this area of France.”  Shirley&Chris, July 2017

“The property matched the description and my expectations perfectly. I had been in email touch with the owners and knew that my partner and I were going to be in reliable, friendly and hospitable hands. Everything was exceptionally clean and tasteful and there was nothing lacking. Even English TV for when we were confined indoors due to a couple of days of rather windy and rainy weather! We mainly just wanted to stay by the wonderful large, heated, pool, which we had to ourselves, and go for short drives or walks around the area. It would have been nice to have had a little bar/bistro within walking distance but we knew before we went that we would have to drive about 10 minutes to the nearest characterful and pretty town of Mirepoix, and it really wasn’t a problem. After all, when we got back in the evening we sipped some wine on the terrace overlooking the lit-up pool and listened to the sounds of beautiful watching the moon shine over the surrounding countryside. We only ate out twice in Mirepoix, once at La Prelude, run by very friendly Catalan owners. The food was tasty and the service was with a smile. I would thoroughly recommend the property to anyone wanting to chill out and relax. The owners left us to our own devices but were there if we wanted to ask them anything.” Barbara&Keith. Date of Stay, July 2017

“If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday in high standard accommodation set in beautiful gardens with panoramic views of lovely countryside then look no further, this is the place for you! We spent a week there in June and were very satisfied with the villa and the condition and quality of the furnishings and equipment provided. The hosts were very helpful and friendly both during the booking process and during our very pleasant stay and we found that the information given in the Owners Direct listing was accurate and not overstated. The nearest town, Mirepoix is 10 – 15 minutes drive away and has a beautiful medieval square with lots of shops, restaurants and bars, a great place for a meal or drink. There are lots of places to visit a little further afield, we particularly liked the old Cité de Carcassonne, Montsegur and Roquefort des Cascades. (40 to 60 minutes drive) Overall we had a brilliant holiday.” David B., Jan 16. Date of Stay June 2015
