Four self-catering cottages with our home in 5 acres of the Pyrénean foothills - Loire Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)

Bedrooms 2
Space 269 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights



Loire Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)

'Loire' is our two bedroom villa, in the prime location next to the pool! Loire sleeps 4 people all on one level.

The centre of the gite is the fully fitted kitchen (with dishwasher and washing machine) and is open plan to the lounge / dining area.

The twin bedded room opens off of the lounge area and has patio doors opening onto the poolside terrace.

The double bedroom is to the other side of the living area, and looks out over the surrounding countryside with en-suite access to the shower room.

The shower room is fully tiled and has a large feature 'wetroom' shower - this is practical for all our guests using the gite, but is primarily to allow it to be used more easily by anyone with movement difficulties.

Outside, Loire has a private terrace at the side of the pool, and a secluded garden area immediately outside the gite with private barbecue and superb views over the surrounding countryside.

Loire has electric heating and is suitable for use all year round.

About the property

In the Pyrenees nr Carcassonne

All the gites have free wi-fi, superbly equipped kitchens with a dishwasher and washing machine, English TV and a private terrace or garden with sun beds, stone built barbecue, patio table and chairs and magnificent views of the countryside and/or the Pyrenees. We are on the edge of a pretty village, ten minutes from the medieval town of Mirepoix, with its restaurants, cafes, weekly market and summer festivals. Carcassonne, the 3rd most popular tourist attraction in France, is 30 minutes. Our regional leisure lake Lac de Montbel, with 1500 acres of water, beach and restaurant, is ten minutes away. The Mediterranean beaches are one hours drive. The extensive vineyards of the Languedoc are within 30 minutes. Extensive walking, cycling and angling, boating, and horse riding is available 'on the doorstep' in the Pyrenees and the Medieval Chateaux of the Cathars surround the area - Montsegur, the 'last stronghold' is 20 minutes away.

About Dave and Kath

We are both from Bristol then worked in London and around the world before leaving the nine to five behind, selling everything in the UK and coming out to France. Our business now is providing luxury accommodation for summer holidays and longer term winter lets - very different to the office, but much more satisfying. Helping us around the property are our four 4-legged lawnmowers: two horses Rajah and Safi, and 2 donkeys Willow and Holly. Always happy to say hello and dispose of unwanted vegetables and bread! We are heavily involved in the life of our village and local area, working with our conseil municipale and local tourist office and we have relationships with many businesses offering attractions and activities for visitors.

Dave and Kath purchased this villa in 2002

Why Dave and Kath chose Ariege

Having holidayed in the south of France as children, we re-discovered the lovely medieval town of Mirepoix when it was featured on an episode of 'A place in the sun' in 2001 and thought 'why not go to France ourselves'? We re-located to France in 2002 and purchased L'Enclos, 10 minutes from Mirepoix. It had been a working farm until the 1970's when the farmhouse and barns started to be converted into gites by the previous french owner, and we have since renovated each of the gites in turn. L'Enclos is our home, owned and run by the two of us - whether that be the preparation of the gites during changeovers or improving the facilities off-season. Each year we enjoy welcoming guests and introducing them to the wonders of this little-known corner of France.

What makes this villa unique

Our village nestles in the foothills of the Pyrenees. 400m above sea level, but with the 3000m peaks 20 mins drive away. Every active sport you can think of is on the doorstep, from paragliding to hill walking via watersports. The Tour de France passes close by and the area is a favourite for cyclists & mountain bikers. We are an hour from the Mediterranean beaches, and enjoy a mild climate. For those that prefer a gentler pace, the roads are quiet and the scenery is spectacular - you can tour the mountains from the comfort of the driving seat! We have many driving and walking tours; vineyards to visit; weekly markets; wildlife and wild flowers (esp. the orchids in spring / early summer). For foodies, Mirepoix (at 10mins) has over 20 restaurants to suit all tastes.
