Tranquil country estate in the foothills of the Pyrenees with great views, heated pool, comfortable accommodation, and delicious locally sourced dining. Many things to see and do in the area.
Le Puget is a comfortable and secluded country estate set in the rolling foothills of the Pyrenees.
From the gardens, you reach the entrance through a pretty courtyard built in the local golden stone. Downstairs, there is a very large living room with an open fire and a library area, a separate stone dining room with another open fire, and a big well equipped kitchen, all with double doors onto the terrace or courtyard. Upstairs, there are en suite bedrooms, simple but comfortable, and a larger suite just across the courtyard. Open fire places, wooden beams, tiled or wooden floors, fit well with our own more modern and uncluttered style. Le Puget is our own home and furnished and equipped to a high standard.
Outside, the private terrace looks out over the valley and 20 hectares of our own farmland, usually sun flowers and wheat, and across to oak woods. The views are lovely. There are gardens, an orchard, a 10m swimming pool with solar heating, a private lake, covered parking, table tennis and football, and a pool table. We have no immediate neighbours apart from the ancient Chateau next door; this is a tranquil and relaxed place to be. We can also offer you gourmet dining, extra housekeeping, and arrange bike hire, massages, horse rides, and other treats.
There is a huge range of things to see and do within an hour in every direction. Our local town, Mirepoix, has one of the most lovely medieval town squares in France, cafes and restaurants and shops, and an excellent Monday market. Carcassonne is about 30 minutes, and you can see one of the Cathar castles in the Pyrenees from our land.
Guests can use the heated pool and gardens, the large living rooms of the domaine, and the 25 hectares of grounds.
We are always delighted to talk with our guests about this wonderful area, the things to see and do, and our experience of living in rural France.
We are within sight of the Pyrenees mountains, and there is different scenery in every direction. Some of the grandest sites of France, like Carcassonne and the Cathar Castles, are within easy reach, as well as sleepy villages, pretty market towns, and sophisticated cities like Toulouse.
We are within an hour of Toulouse airport and TGV station. Like most or rural France, a car is essential to see the sites. Le Puget is easy to find, and we will email you exact travel directions.
