About this listing

If you want to stay some days next to nature, living in front of a magnificient view, being independent with simple but efficient kitchen, shower,... don't hesitate to come. One large bed and two beds give shelter to 4 p. We will enjoy to show you around.

The space

THE CABIN:This cosy, rustic cabin is situated in a beautiful rural setting with a spectacular view of the Pyrenees. One cannot help but relax and unwind in this peaceful corner of the Ariege-Pyrenees National Park.

FACILITIES:There are facilities to comfortably sleep 4 people, with a double king bed as well as an upper loft that sleeps 2. This makes it ideal for a family, couples or groups of friends wanting to ´get away from it all´ and experience rural life. The cabin is well-insulated but a wood stove is provides additional heating on colder days if needed. There is also a fridge and free internet connection via cable.

A basic but lovely kitchen is located just outside the cabin so you can admire the view while you cook (gas) in the fresh air. The adjoining shower provides hot water, or there is a solar shower for use on summer days if you prefer.

The site is eco- friendly, with the building itself being made of straw, cork, wood and terracotta. There is a clean compost toilet solely for cabin guest use.

Sol is an experienced cook and warmly welcomes you to have dinner with us on request, at a time of your choosing. We are able to provide aperitifs, drinks, dinner, dessert (and good Spanish coffee!) for the whole family, made with local products.
(Adults 20E, children 10E)

THINGS TO DO:
· On-site, private horse trekking is offered by Joan, who is a certified horse riding guide, for riders of all abilities (from beginner to very experienced). This spectacular region lends itself to magical experiences in the forest and mountains, riding on secluded paths past clear streams in the fresh air of the national park. The horses have been trained on-site and you will be personally matched with a horse that matches you ability. For experienced riders Joan offers the opportunity of more advanced treks, where you can feel the freedom of roaming and galloping in the countryside without excessive constraints.
· Being well-positioned in the Ariege region, there is a multitude of options for day-trips (we offer picnics on request).
· Alternatively one can rest in a tranquil setting with all the comforts of home, and take advantage of the on-site spa pool/hot tub, sauna, or soon-to-be-completed Moroccan Hammam! wich are paying facilities.

ABOUT US: We are a warm and welcoming Catalan family who live on site, but far enough from the cabin to allow you full privacy. We also run a B&B on-site, so are experienced in providing high-quality meals if there is a night you would rather not cook!

what an amazing view to wake up to, or have lunch to on the lovely wooden bench outside. A great space for our romantic weekend, truly well adapted. Simple and for us nature lovers perfect. Gracias.

Sol and Joan made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived at their cabin. The cabin was beyond perfect for a weekend escape in the countryside. The views are exactly as depicted by Sol and Joan, if not better! The interior of the cabin is cosy, warm, clean and well built - it's simply gorgeous. The stove provides great warmth, much like the warmth of Sol and Joan's welcome :) We went horse-riding with Joan on Sunday morning and it is clear that he and his wife are two people who care deeply about the welfare of their horses. The riding experience was well organised and we felt safe at all times. Sol and Joan recommended us a nice market to visit on the first day of our trip as well as giving us information about nice walks and drives in the locality. It is necessary to have a car to make the most of your stay. Once again, we cannot recommend a stay in this cabin, and these hosts highly enough :) Merci for our lovely stay, it was molt ben! We hope to see you again - love, your Irish and Polish friends

Secluded property in the absolutely gorgeous foothills of the midi French Pyrenees. Becuase of a family emergency for the host we ended up staying in the cabana house on the property (it's a large primarily family oriented house) so I can't speak to staying in the cabin itself or any additional activities Sol provides, but I can say the property is lovely (especially the little Jack Russel Terrier Izú who seems to oversee the place) . It a large sort of farm rural property on a hill side. Excellent sauna near the cabana house. The cabin itself is the most secluded part of the property on top of the hill, just don't expect it to be extremely isolated. Location is very rural and the nearest town is tiny so plan on cooking a good portion of your meals. Saint Girons is the closest town of major consequence and takes 25 min or so to drive to. I do reccomend mostly that guess drive around the higher altitude areas in the Parc Naturel Pyrenees Ariegeonises. Plenty to do and some excellent hiking there. Expect to drive around a bit becuase you are aren't directly up in the mountains, just nearby.

We were warmly welcomed by Sol and family to our first air bnb stay. Their log cabin is nestled above and away from their family home so you are not intruded on at all. Sol invited us to explore their grounds which we were thrilled to really is a slice of paradise. We were able to rent towels which enabled us to have a relaxing dip in the salt water swimming pool; a must! We joined Sol and family for dinner which was superb. We were even lucky enough to try some of their home made apple juice and cider which was delicious. Overall we had a fabulous stay at this lovely unique accommodation and would definitely stay there again.

We had a lovely stay in the cabin, it's in a peaceful location with beautiful views. It was our first trip to the Pyrenees and Sol was really helpful in recommending a few things to do in the area, great local markets.. Thank you!

A lovely wooden cottage with a beautiful view over the Pyrenees. You really experience the outdoor feeling because the toilet, shower and kitchen are outside. Moreover, the horse riding is highly recommended. We had a lovely time and Sol en Juan can tell you everything you need to experience around Saint-Croix-Volvestre!
