We have spent 7 years looking for our dream house and location, now that we have found it we want to offer you in Polfages the chance to enjoy the best standards found in English country cottages with the lifestyle that can only be found in the South of France. With a location we fell in love with it really is one of the most relaxing and beautiful places we have ever seen. Polfages is an idyllic location for your holiday. Situated overlooking rolling hills with views over to the Montagne Noir on one side and the Pyrenees on the other. It offers a holiday that can be both relaxing and action packed. Polfages is ideal if you just want to sit by the pool and relax taking in the stunning views or if you want to make the most of you time in the region. With the beach just over an hour away and the mountains the same you can truly get the best of both types of holiday.

Andrew Frith purchased this cottage in 2013
Polfages is somewhere that my family and I think of as truly special. Every time I walk the dogs or just sitting and take in the views I realizes how lucky we are.
From the views that stretch away into the forever distance to the clean pure air that comes from the stunning Pyrenees. Taking the in the silence of the countryside to watching the hawks spiraling upwards into the clear blue sky.
Polfages really is where the Mountains meet the Sea and there is a world of things to do in between to suit everyone. At Polfages you really are able to have the best of all worlds. From sitting by the pool relaxing with stunning views and tranquility while recharging your batteries to being able to visit some of the most historic sites, towns and castles in all of France. Learn about the history of the Cathars and how the Canal du Midi was built joining the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. If you would like to include mountains activities in your holiday then the Pyrenees are only 45 minutes away, or in just over an hour you can spend time on the Mediterranean beaches.
Fionnuala stayed with us in June and this is what she had to say about her holiday at Polfages,
We visited Polfages in June 2015 for a week. Andrew and Jo Frith were excellent hosts. The information supplied in advance of our arrival was comprehensive and of great help. The accommodation was very well equipped, comfortable and welcoming. The location is truly beautiful. The website provides an accurate description of what to expect from your visit. On arrival we availed of a generous and tasty evening meal which is an optional service provided by the Friths. We would recommend this. A BBQ is also provided, which proved useful. We highly recommend Polfages.

The gites at Polfages are a great place to relax and unwind. This is our second year, choosing this time to stay in Mazamet (the largest). The views from the gite and pool are stunning and the properties are all equally well finished. Andrew and Jo do a great job of looking after you and have started doing great pizzas to order on those nights where the BBQ seems too much effort. The property is great if you have dogs as you can walk straight off the end of the garden and go for as long or short as you like through fields of corn and sunflowers.
The location is nice a rural with silence in abundance yet Mirepoix is only 15mins away and Bram, Castelnaudry, Montbel (Lake) and Carcasonne not much further away.
No doubt we will be back.
We arrived at 12.30 p.m. after a long journey from Paris, but we were still greeted with a warm welcome by our host Andrew, the owner of Polfages. We had pre-ordered a meal and this was ready for us even at such a late hour. This was a gastronomic feast, consisting of baguetes, fruit, wine, juice and chocolate mouse. Our gite was immaculate and the decor attractive and to a very high standard. The view from the pool was over looking filelds of sunflowers with the pyreenees as a back drop. I felt like a celebrity sunning myself my the pool with a view to die for. Jo, Andrews wife was so kind and couldnt do enough to help us. She even managed to get a stain out of my white capri pants. And this lovely couple even offered to baby sit the childrenvso we could have a night to our self. During our time at Villatou we visited the beautiful beach at Narbonne le Page and several stunning historic citys, including Mirepouix, Carcasonne and Narbonne le Cite. I can highly reccomend Polfages to other families looking for a wonderful holiday. I would rate it higher than any other holiday we have had! But I would rather keep this slice of heaven to myself incase it is fully booked next year! We will be booking early to avoid disappointment!
We stayed for 5 nights at from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt very welcome by the owners and very settled! Our 4 year old daughter got very much stuck in with the dogs, cats, chickens & goats and was always keen to get back to our gite while we were out exploring. The surrounding area is stunning and the views from around the property were fantastic. Great roads for exploring by bike or car and the nearby towns very much worth a visit. The owners were very kind to give us lots of good tips on places to visit too, so each day was an enjoyable adventure followed by a swim in the pool and a BBQ - sheer bliss! The house itself was lovely, clean and tidy and had all the amenities we needed plus a few nice little extras like cling film, tin foil and washing up liquid - may sound silly, but we always forget to pack these, so it was nice to have them provided so we didn't have to go shopping for them on arrival! On that note, the offer from the owners to pick up basic shopping for us before we arrived was great, as we had come on the overnight ferry to Santander and had a night stopover on the way from there, so we couldn't have brought our own provisions and we arrived when the shops were closed on a Sunday. It meant we could enjoy a lovely meal on our first night without any hassle. We would definitely recommend Polfages to friends and family and look forward to returning back ourselves next time we come to France!!
This was our second stay at Polfages Gites Complex and we were not disappointed. Jo and Andrew (the owners) made us very welcome. We stayed in the same gite as last year and it everywhere seemed fresh and inviting.
There is a kitchen diner and a lounge area divided by the staircase to the bedrooms (all en suite). All the decor throughout fresh and modern with a farm house feel.
Eggs from the chucks and a bottle of rose in the fridge on arrival were the little extras that were appreciated.
Wonderfully situated with stunning views from the Gites and access to local roads and motorways.
I celebrated a memorable birthday evening with wonderful food provided by the hosts. Not sure if that is a regular feature lol but the food was exceptional and greatly appreciated by myself and other guests.
I can highly recommend Polfages and will hopefully go again soon
The accommodation is clean, comfortable and has everything you need. The proprietors Jo and Andrew cannot do enough to help you to enjoy your stay with them.
The location is so peaceful and has the most wonderful views on every side!!
We ordered a celebration meal for one of our party - it was tremendous, everything was cooked and prepared to perfection. A lovely atmosphere and beautiful location.
This was our second visit to Polfages, we came back because of the quality and locations of the gites and were not disappointed. The gite we stayed in this time was up to the same high standard and I had forgotten how great the views were. We took advantage of the newly offered option of meals and really enjoyed the range and style of cooking. Its not often something is better the second time around, however this holiday was.
