The space

Beautifully restored south facing village house in the south of France Sleepy village with sheep rabbits, forest and beautiful views. Near Rennes le Chateau in French Cathar country. Beautiful walks start at the door.

The house has two double bedrooms one with an ensuite Italian shower room and WC and the other with a large bathroom with double vanity sinks and bathtub.

The living room is comfortably furnished with a library, games and a trundle bed which can be a single or a double when it is not simply made up as a daybed.

The kitchen has a granite work top top and a spacious fridge, It is very well equipped combining modernity with traditional materials.

The house is very well insulated and cool in the summer and very comfortable in the winter with oil central heating. There is also a laundry.

The village is perched on a hill with wondrous views. There is a daily bread van and only 10 minutes drive away are two market towns and many other attractions. The area is known for its massive diversity of plant and wildlife species, walking tracks, Roman and medieval ruins. Particularly famous for Cathar castles and recently the mystery of Rennes le chateau. Also close to skiing and the Mediterranean sea. Carcassonne, Toulouse, Lourdes and Carcassonne are all typical day trips

Unless keen cyclists a motor is almost obligatory.

The house is beautifully finished and Visitors are invited to use the chateau garden and its impressive range of aromatic herbs.

Guest access

Guests have exlusive use of the front door of the gite. In the entry hall there is a laundry which is seperate from the gite. This gite is not used when guests are in residence. Parking is just 10 metres away and the house is situated just behind the village church on the South side. Guests are welcome to used the chateau tables and outdoor spaces.

Interaction with guests

We live very nearby and so unless exceptionally we are away we are available on site for guests. If we are away there are people locally who know the gite and the village well who will be helpful.

Other things to note

We have a well stocked herb garden and love to share our herbs with the guests. The chateau has an association and there are sometimes very good concerts or conferences on in the summer evenings or afternoons. If you become a member of the Amis du Chateau de St Ferriol you will be able to have a tour of the inside of the chateau.

Saint Ferriol is a fine medieval hilltop village in gorgeous countryside. Nearest cafes, shops etc are in Quillan, ten mins away. The house is very spacious and comfortable and well equipped. There was no detergent for the dishwasher so you might need to bring your own but everything else was in place. We brought our own linen as the cost of having it provided was too high. We met Sophie and she was very welcoming and kindly gave us some herbs from her garden. This is a great base for exploring Cathar country and the glorious Pyrenean foothills. Lots of footpaths lead out of the village and there are plenty of wild plum and fig trees to sustain you as you walk.

Very neat home in a quiet town. Fixed up very nicely and Sophia is very easy to work with. Very clean house. It was a pleasure to stay here away from the cities.

We loved Sophie's cottage. It is a beautifully renovated stone cottage over several levels with all the mod cons. Saint Feriol may appear to be a little out of the way, but in fact it lies in the heart of the Cathar country; and is a terrific base from which to explore villages, castles, gorges etc. Magic place.
