Overview

Property

Updated: 20-Nov-2016
House in Durban-sur-Arize, Ariege, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Peaceful Location, 15 Minutes From Local Swimming Lakes, 45 Mins From Ski Resorts

The combination of the Pyrenean scenery and the Mediterranean climate make for a wonderful holiday all year round at La Maison Famille. It’s a paradise for those searching for activities or just relaxation. Ideal for those who like cycling, hiking and walking and a short drive from local ski resorts for alpine and cross country skiing. Enjoy the flavour of French life in our lovingly restored home and explore the sights in an area that is outstandingly beautiful, steeped in history and has its own micro-climate. La Maison Famille is available to rent as a 5 bedroom gite or as Chambres D’hote/B&B rooms and sleeps up to 14 people. We also offer evening meals/Table D’hote and can even offer home-made cakes and afternoon tea, picnics and packed lunches. For those with children we offer the use of a wide selection of toys and play equipment, so they are entertained while you relax and sunbathe on our sun terrace, enjoy the shade of our orchard, or have a dip in the above ground pool to cool you off. Activities to suit all ages are available nearby, or simply take in the sights and sounds of the Ariege in the heart of Cathar-country; you can drive to the beach on the Mediterranean Sea within 2 hours, use the local lake, or even go duty-free shopping in Andorra within 90 minutes, with the renowned Spa towns of Ax-les-Thermes and St Lizier less than an hour away. We are only 1 hour 20 mins from both Toulouse and Carcassone Airports.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andy Bryce – 5 star

Just arrived home after a week at La Maison Famille. Beautiful traditional French home and amazing hosts. I really enjoyed and appreciated the first night dinner, it made life with kids so much easier on arrival. No stress of arranging dinner. Lots to do and see within driving driving distance, and the road from Foix is great fun.
