This is a beautiful area in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the South of France. The Languedoc is one of the sunniest areas of France, with over 200 days of sunshine a year. Puivert is a pretty, friendly village with castle, swimming lake and beach, museum, grocery shop, and cafés and restaurants. There are lots of hiking trails nearby, and watersports at Lac Montbel. The nearest ski station is 28 km away. Whether you like history, castles, wine-tasting, mountains, fishing, watersports, cycling, skiing, or just relaxing in the sunshine and enjoying good local food, this is an ideal centre.
In termtime a bus goes from Puivert to Quillan and back each day. There is also a local mini-bus service costing 2 euros, which can be booked the day before and goes to a different town or village each day. From Quillan, there are one-euro buses and trains to Perpignan and Carcassonne. You are also welcome to borrow our two bicycles, and we can arrange free transfers from Quillan station if requested in advance.
We ask guests to respect others when sharing the grounds and pool, and also to leave the studio apartment clean and tidy on departure. You are welcome to smoke on the terrace, but not in the apartment please.
At arrival we found some food and drinks in the cooler, wat was very wellcoming. Ruth was a very helpfull and nice person, who like to give you a very pleasant stay with her. The appartement was very comfortable, so as the swimming pool. We did enjoy our stay very much and shall recommend surely the adress.
Nach einer Woche strenger Arbeit im Südwesten Frankreichs konnten wir uns wunderbar entspannen bei Ruth und Peter in Puivert. Peter hat uns herzlich willkommen geheissen und war weiterhin sehr hilfreich mit Tipps zu Essen und Sehenswürdigkeiten! Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und uns gut entspannt, eigentlich aber viel zu kurz...
From 11 to 25 of August we had a lovely stay in Ruth and Peter's studio. A perfect place to be and to visit the region (Pays de Cathare).
We loved their warm welcome and services.
The swimming-pool is an outstanding extra moment of relaxing after our journeys, just reading and sunbathing.
It was a pleasure!!!!!
Lovely place, exactly as described, peaceful and quiet. We had a great time and the hosts are very welcoming.
Greeted by our lovely hosts Ruth and Peter, we liked Green Horizon
immediately. We stayed in the spacious studio with a spare bed and
enough privacy for two persons, a kitchenette and the feeling of
living in the middle of the huge garden. Cats were everywhere and the
pool was very appreciated after a long day discovering the Pays
Cathare. The B’n’B is very good located (even when you are arriving by
UFO ;-)), with Puivert and its Castle in walking distance. Thanks to
good timing we even got to see a great firework at the lake of
Nicole and Bernhard
Thank you so much for your lovely review Bernhard and Nicole. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and liked the garden and the pool. It was great that you arrived on the day of the Puivert firework display! I do hope your onward journey went well, and we very much hope to see you both again sometime. Ruth and Peter

About the Host, Ruth
Hello, I'm Ruth. I live in the Languedoc with my family (plus our cats, guinea-pigs, chickens... and lovely volunteer helpers). We love this beautiful area and are very happy to have an opportunity to share it with our guests. When I am travelling, I much prefer to stay with Airbnb hosts rather than in anonymous hotels.
Looking forward to meeting you!
