About the property

Farmhouse in Plaigne, Nr. Mirepoix, Lanquedoc-Roussillon, France - A Private Property Located 15 Minutes From The Historic Town Of Mirepoix

Are you looking for an activity holiday or one where you want to relax and enjoy the more tranquil of leisure pursuits then look no further as Languedoc Roussillon can accommodate your every wish. If it is the sea and beaches you want then the Mediterranean is very accessible. If it is skiing/mountaineering or walking then the Pyrenees are less than an hour and half away. On the doorstep there is also much more just waiting to be discovered. Cagarot is a delightful and charming farmhouse set in the countryside just outside Plaigne on the border with the Ariege. The farmhouse provides the ultimate escape-from-it-all; the recently renovated property provides elegant accommodation for up to 12 people. The garden with pool is a delight; a lavender lined path leads to the pool and is illuminated at night. This charming farmhouse is in an ideal location for exploring southern France. You will find it easy to totally switch off in this beautiful and calm environment.

About Robert Eustace

We have finally realised our dream of owning a property in France. Having spent just over 2 years looking and setting ourselves some very clear boundaries and objectives we were convinced that our dream house would be located in the foothills of the Alps (we are all very keen skiers). This was until a very good friend invited us to stay in their beautiful home near Fanjeux. Over a period of 18 months we fell in love with the area. It has everything we could ask for - sailing/windsurfing for those inclined towards watersports, golf/cycling/swimming/walking and horse riding and that all important skiing in the winter. The most important box it has ticked for us is the 'Get Away from it All' box. We can really get away from it here and enjoy all that this beautiful region has to offer.

Robert Eustace purchased this house in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is beautiful, spacious and well maintained. We had a very relaxing break mainly spent by the pool, both by day and nighttime BBQs. Trips to Mirepoix and Carcassonne were memorable. Jean Christophe was extremely helpful. Thanks again.

The Villages

A great week in the Languedoc countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our host Rob was wonderfully accommodating - when our flight arrival in Toulouse was delayed from 1 PM to 7 PM, he was nevertheless waiting patiently for us at the home for our 10 PM arrival - not knowing exactly when we would be there! The house itself was well equipped, and the combination of large kitchen and adjacent dining area was especially welcome, and heavily used.

The Languedoc is large, and so there is no location which is convenient to everything. Nevertheless, the little village of Plaigne became a fine base for many places we visited: Toulouse, Albi, Carcassone, Collioure, the Tarn gorges, and others.

Again, Rob's cheerfulness, openness, and detailed explanations of the workings of the house really made us feel especially welcome, and our group of 6 recommends this property without reservation.

The house was extremely nice, everything I'd hoped for, as it is in the photo.raph.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this lovely house, we had rather unfortunate weather so we couldn't make full use of the pool and barbecue, though we still managed to eat outside every night bar one. We enjoyed touring the surrounding area visiting some beautiful towns. Carcasonne was amazing but so many people, it's the first time I've seen a queue into a town. The only criticism would be the rather busy road that runs alongside the house that we were unaware of, despite that we had a thoroughly nice holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your very kind remarks about our lovely property in Plaigne. I am very sorry that the weather was so unseasonable but we were heartened to note that you did manage to eat out, by the pool, on most nights. It is quite one of our favourite pastimes when we are there. I am very sorry that the road caused you some distress. This has never been an issue in the past and not something that has prompted previous guests to pass comment. I wonder what was going on in the area that week to cause the traffic on the road to increase to such a level to prompt you to comment? Once again, thank you for your very positive comments and we would love to welcome you back to the house - hopefully next time when the weather is behaving itself.

Fabulous family friendly house in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful time. The house has been amazing - big enough for 3 families to both have their own space and spend time together. It is very well equipped and has amazing log burners for the chilly evenings, need to mention the comfy beds and nice towels too!

The location is great, we have visited Carcassonne, Andorra, Montesegur, Lac Montbel and others.

Tom, age 9 - The garden was good for kicking a ball around. The pool was a chilly but was fun to play in.

Thanks, Rob, for making our stay at your lovely house so welcoming, relaxing and enjoyable.

Wonderful house in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed not only with the property but the location was ideal. Having been been on dozens of trips to France the location exceeded our expectations. It's convenient for Toulouse which easyjet have social flights times, (or ryanair Carcassonne). The med is about an hour, the Pyrenees not far and a host of wonderful towns nearby.

The house itself is excellent. You can tell the owners have prepared it to their own standards not as a rental property (for instance the quality of beds, bedding and furniture) We were a party of 8 but the house can take 12 in 6 bedrooms comfortably so we had more than enough space. The neighbour Jean Christophe meets you on arrival who is a true gentleman. As long as you can speak franglais you'll be fine. He'll make sure that all is well during your stay.

The pool is wonderful for families with steps one end and a secure cover. There is a barbeque around the pool area. The lawn is large for kids (and big kids) to run around and play.

In summary a great home in a great location. Wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you to the owners who clearly love the house.

Fantastic house in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Instantly recognisable by the blue shutters on the windows, it was easy to find on the outskirts of the village. We were met immediately by the wonderful Jean Christof who gave us a thorough tour of the building and its peculiarities, as well as the pool. The house was full of character and well furnished and appointed. Large airy bedrooms had lots of windows to let in the lovely light that this part of the world seems to get lots of . Downstairs, the two living rooms allowed the adults to chill in one room while the kids watched the large TV in the other and made use of the wifi. The kitchen was modern and well equipped, with a icemaking fridge that the kids loved. The house is next to a road but it is very quiet and there wasn't any issue of noise at all. In fact the only noise came from the braying donkey up the hill and the odd fighter jet that seemed to fly low overhead in the early evening!

We visited in October but the weather was still warm in the day and we got to sit around the pool. The evenings were chillier but JC put out some logs for us to feed the wood burning stove in the living room, which was brilliant.

The house location is rural but there is lots to see within an hour's drive. Top visits for us were the medieval market square in nearby Mirepoix, the chateau at Foix, the caves at Niaux and Carcassonne. There are no shops in the immediate village but in belpech to the north (about 3km) there are numerous stores as well as a few bakers and a great butcher.

All in all a fabulous house in a fabulous place.
