The space

Mountain Way bed and breakfast is small and friendly. We have two guest bedrooms in our home with a shared guest bathroom, and provide a varied breakfast menu, catering for individual tastes. We can also serve a range of tasty evening meals, BBQs or packed lunches on request, and you will find tea and coffee making facilities, broadband Wi-Fi access and TV/DVD in the rooms. Our B&B is situated on the edge of the town of Foix, in a peaceful residential area at the bottom of the wooded hillsides of the Prat d'Albis - the start of the Pyrenean hills. We are still just a couple of minutes’ drive or a 15-minute walk to Foix’s main square, where there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the medieval old town overlooked by its famous castle. Foix is also a great base for those interested in activities such as rafting, canyoning, climbing, paragliding and mountain-biking, as well as skiing in the winter.

Note that each of our two rooms is listed separately on Airbnb. Each room accommodates 2 people, plus one extra in a small bed (or cot for babies or small children). If you need two rooms, you should reserve this room (Room 1) and then go to our other listing (Mountain Way B and B Room 2: ) and reserve the other room.

Other things to note

Please note that we are not usually able to take very last minute bookings outside the summer season.

First experience with airbnb and I'm pleased to say it was a very positive one. Our host (Kate) kindly picked us up from the railway station and drove us to their home. The room was very comfortable, clean, and exactly according to the photos. Richard and Kate (and James) treated us like family and all in all our stay in Foix was pleasant indeed. The town itself is quaint, and the castle is well worth a visit. We enjoyed it all and when it was time to leave Kate braved the peak hour traffic and dropped us back to the station.

We had a lovely stay with Kate and Richard. Their house, which is tastefully furnished and comfortable, is convenient for the centre of Foix (10-15 min stroll in) whilst being in a very quiet location. The bedroom was spacious, the bed large and comfortable. The shared bathroom has a great shower and nicely done. Everything is very clean and well cared for. Kate and Richard are very welcoming and friendly. Breakfasts good.

The home was beautiful and the family was great. Just like any great place, the people make the experience always so much better. I loved Foix, but Richard and Kate made it an all around fantastic experience. Would definitely go back if given the chance. No question :)

Very nice stay at Richard and Kate's. The house is calm and not far from the center of Foix. Richard and Kate are very considerate and attentive persons. The breakfast is good. We do recommend this rest stop . Thanks for all and see you.

Richard and Kate are lovely and friendly hosts. The room is beautiful and has private sanitary. The house is a bit of walk from town centre but in a nice and quiet neighbourhood.

My stay with Richard and Kate in Foix was everything I could have hoped for. What a beautiful home. It's like you're in the middle of the country, but only a 10 to 15 min. walk into town. When I first arrived, I couldn't stop taking photos from my bedroom window. The same thing happened the next morning with the beautiful sunrise. A clean, quiet, spacious room hosted by a kind and caring family. I'd like to thank you for the nice conversation during breakfast. It was nice to be able to speak some English. Say hello to James for me, and thank him again for sharing his cereal with me. I also appreciated the pick up and the drop off at the train station. And it was a special treat to watch Il Postino in my room on your DVD player. Overall, a very memorable experience.
