We are located in the small pretty village of La Bastide de Bousignac, very close to the stunning medieval market town of Mirepoix in Ariege, France. The village has its own bakery - ideal for your morning croissants and offering a great mixture of breads and patisserie. The historic town of Mirepoix is a 5 minute car journey away, with its renowned Monday morning market in the main square and, along with a large supermarket, a great selection of shops and restaurants. Events take place all year round in the main square, so it's worth checking with the Mirepoix Tourist Office to see what's happening during your stay. (www.tourisme-mirepoix.com)
Mirepoix is ideally situated offering easy access to Toulouse, Castelnaudary and the World Heritage Site of Carcassonne. The local countryside is peppered with Cathar Castles such as Montsegur and picturesque villages dating back to Medieval times. The Canal du Midi is 30 minutes away and you can reach the Mediterranean coast at Narbonne in about 90 minutes. Within fifteen minutes of the house is the stunning Lac Montbel where you can relax by the water or hire a boat for an hour or two. We also have an international go-karting track about ten minutes away. During the Winter months the small Pyrenean resort of Les Monts D'Olmes is only 45 minutes by car.
There are many local events throughout the Summer, including evening food markets and themed weekends in Mirepoix.
The house itself is finished in a clean, modern style, offering five bedrooms which can sleep up to ten people (3 double rooms, 1 bunk room and 1 twin bedded room). There are three bathrooms (One has a shower and the other two have baths with separate showers). Downstairs there is a fully equipped large kitchen / dining room which seats 10 with all the usual appliances you would expect, together with a utility area with washing machine etc and a downstairs loo. There is a separate large comfortable sitting room which has French windows opening out into the garden.
The second half of the garden is securely gated and has the pool area, as shown on the photos. The 9 x 4.5 metre pool has a salt water system which is very gentle on the skin compared with traditional chlorine, and uses solar heating to keep it nice and warm (sun permitting...). There is a ledge at 1 metre the whole way round, ideal for children. Sun loungers are provided and the table can be extended to accommodate up to 10 guests. There is outdoor lighting and a pool light so you can enjoy the long warm evenings outside.
All linen is provided and there is a washing machine for your use during your stay.
We think that it is Ideal for families – we have owned the house for 13 years and both our boys (now 11 & 13) have grown up (on holiday) here. Please note that we are located in a quiet village with immediate neighbours, so if you are looking for somewhere to party outside until the early hours this may not be the right place for you. It's probably also worth mentioning that our neighbour keeps a couple of geese and a few chickens in part of her garden, just in case this is an issue for you.
Changeover day is normally Saturday, but we will endeavour to be flexible wherever possible. Checkout by 10 am and arrival from 4pm. The closest airports are Carcassonne (45 mins) or Toulouse (1 hr 15 mins) and we consider the drive from Carcassonne Airport to be the most picturesque 'airport run' we have ever encountered.
Please note that this is a non-smoking property.
