Nuestra estancia con Richard y Kate fue maravillosa. Nos sentimos muy como en casa. La casa es como un oasis en la montaña y sus dueños, Kate y Richard, son extremadamente agradables, muy predispuestos e interesantes. Sin duda, volveríamos a alojarnos con ellos. Gracias Kate y Richard!
Dear potential guest of this property,
We're a married couple in their first year, and we were on a Euro trip that started in France. It was our first time using air bnb so here is our review for this property.
We were hosted by Richard and his lovely wife Kate in early September and we had a great experience.
Richard picked us up from the train station and took us to their beautiful house on top of a hill, about a 10 min walk from the centre of Foix. Kate gave us a map and highlighted some places to go and general things about Foix: market days, the chateau, super market, etc. We also met their young son, James. Very cute kid who loves to draw planes.
There was a good variety for breakfast, pasties, cereal, yogurt. Kate was also kind enough to cook us dinner two nights in a row (for a small fee), with vegetables from her garden!
The room, and house, were very clean. Our room was on the 1st floor. Nice hard wood floors with windows that open up to an amazing view of Foix.
Kate was so helpful and can't thank her enough for making our stay so enjoyable.
Thank you so much Kate and Richard. Hope all is well, We still have the picture James drew for us :)

A lovely, clean, comfortable and welcoming home to be allowed into; Richard and Kate were fantastic; they helped us out when we got stuck with transport problems, provided a good breakfast and we had a great room and bathroom. Highly recommended.
Richard and Kate were excellent hosts for me and my traveling partner. Their house is amazing and their son, James, was a delight to meet. Richard and Kate have lived in many other parts of the world and have chosen souther France as their new home. They brought objects d'art from many of those places and these decorate their old farmhouse home. Their stories are amazing and we had great discussions over a lovely breakfast each morning! Their home is a short walk into the center of Foix but in spite of being so close to town their home is quiet and feels like being out in the country! We loved it!
My girlfriend and I stayed with Richard and Kate in Foix, and had the most wonderful time. Arriving in Foix via train, we were unsure if we would find a good place to stay. Kate and Richard instantly offered to pick us up from the train station, and brought us back to their beautiful home. Located in the outskirts of Foix, within walking distance of downtown and the train, their home is very elegant and the guest room is beautiful, very serene and quiet. The breakfast was a bountiful and delicious spread of fresh baguettes and croissants.
We had a great time chatting with Kate, Richard and their son James. In addition, the town of Foix is a lovely accompaniment to any vacation in the French Pyrenees. Basically, we could not recommend this place more highly.
