We have spent 7 years looking for our dream house and location, now that we have found it we want to offer you in Polfages the chance to enjoy the best standards found in English country cottages with the life style that can only be found in the South of France. With a location we fell in love with it really is one of the most relaxing and beautiful places we have ever seen.

Polfages is an idyllic location for your holiday. Situated over looking rolling hills with views over to the Montagne Noir on one side and the Pyrenees on the other. It offers a holiday that can be both relaxing and action packed. Polfages is ideal if you just want to sit by the pool and relax taking in the stunning views or if you want to make the most of you time in the region. With the beach just over an hour away and the mountains the same you can truly get the best of both types of holiday.

Belcaire is made up of a well equipped kitchen and dining area leading through to a comfortable lounge. The lounge leads onto the terrace and BBQ area, where you live the alfresco lifestyle whilst relaxing with the stunning views. You can access the garden and pool from the terrace.

Upstairs there are 2 spacious bed rooms with access to the bathroom with walk in shower. Both bedrooms can be arranged with either 2 single beds or a super king size bed, you my maximum flexibility and a great night's sleep. There is access to WIFI and English TV channels so you can stay in touch with the world should you so desire.

Great gites in an idyllic location


By James M on 17-Sep-2016

The gites at Polfages are a great place to relax and unwind. This is our second year, choosing this time to stay in Mazamet (the largest). The views from the gite and pool are stunning and the properties are all equally well finished. Andrew and Jo do a great job of looking after you and have started doing great pizzas to order on those nights where the BBQ seems too much effort. The property is great if you have dogs as you can walk straight off the end of the garden and go for as long or short as you like through fields of corn and sunflowers. The location is nice a rural with silence in abundance yet Mirepoix is only 15mins away and Bram, Castelnaudary, Montbel (Lake) and Carcassonne not much further away. No doubt we will be back

Stylish and extrememly clean gite, with lovely Laura Ashley bed linen and throws.


By Beverly S on 30-Jul-2016

We arrived at 12.30 p.m. after a long journey from Paris, but we were still greeted with a warm welcome by our host Andrew, the owner of Polfages. We had pre-ordered a meal and this was ready for us even at such a late hour. This was a gastronomic feast, consisting of baguettes, fruit, wine, juice and chocolate mousse. Our gite was immaculate and the decor attractive and to a very high standard. The view from the pool was over looking fields of sunflowers with the Pyrenees as a backdrop. I felt like a celebrity sunning myself my the pool with a view to die for. Jo, Andrews wife was so kind and couldn't do enough to help us. She even managed to get a stain out of my white capri pants. And this lovely couple even offered to baby sit the children so we could have a night to our self. During our time at Villautou we visited the beautiful beach at Narbonne le Page and several stunning historic cities, including Mirepoix, Carcassonne and Narbonne le Cite. I can highly recommend Polfages to other families looking for a wonderful holiday. I would rate it higher than any other holiday we have had! But I would rather keep this slice of heaven to myself incase it is fully booked next year! We will be booking early to avoid disappointment!

A home from home


By Sacha T on 21-Jun-2016

We stayed for 5 nights at from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt very welcome by the owners and very settled! Our 4 year old daughter got very much stuck in with the dogs, cats, chickens & goats and was always keen to get back to our gite while we were out exploring. The surrounding area is stunning and the views from around the property were fantastic. Great roads for exploring by bike or car and the nearby towns very much worth a visit. The owners were very kind to give us lots of good tips on places to visit too, so each day was an enjoyable adventure followed by a swim in the pool and a BBQ - sheer bliss! The house itself was lovely, clean and tidy and had all the amenities we needed plus a few nice little extras like cling film, tin foil and washing up liquid - may sound silly, but we always forget to pack these, so it was nice to have them provided so we didn't have to go shopping for them on arrival! On that note, the offer from the owners to pick up basic shopping for us before we arrived was great, as we had come on the overnight ferry to Santander and had a night stopover on the way from there, so we couldn't have brought our own provisions and we arrived when the shops were closed on a Sunday. It meant we could enjoy a lovely meal on our first night without any hassle. We would definitely recommend Polfages to friends and family and look forward to returning back ourselves next time we come to France!!

Polfages Revisited


By David H on 25-May-2016

This was our second stay at Polfages Gites Complex and we were not disappointed. Jo and Andrew (the owners) made us very welcome. We stayed in the same gite as last year and it everywhere seemed fresh and inviting. There is a kitchen diner and a lounge area divided by the staircase to the bedrooms (all en suite). All the decor throughout fresh and modern with a farm house feel. Eggs from the chucks and a bottle of rose in the fridge on arrival were the little extras that were appreciated. Wonderfully situated with stunning views from the Gites and access to local roads and motorways. I celebrated a memorable birthday evening with wonderful food provided by the hosts. Not sure if that is a regular feature lol but the food was exceptional and greatly appreciated by myself and other guests. I can highly recommend Polfages and will hopefully go again soon

Fabulous hospitality in the most beautiful place


By D Saville on 16-May-2016

The accommodation is clean, comfortable and has everything you need. The proprietors Jo and Andrew cannot do enough to help you to enjoy your stay with them. The location is so peaceful and has the most wonderful views on every side!! We ordered a celebration meal for one of our party - it was tremendous, everything was cooked and prepared to perfection. A lovely atmosphere and beautiful location.

Better than the last time


By Carol H on 13-May-2016

This was our second visit to Polfages, we came back because of the quality and locations of the gites and were not disappointed. The gite we stayed in this time was up to the same high standard and I had forgotten how great the views were. We took advantage of the newly offered option of meals and really enjoyed the range and style of cooking. Its not often something is better the second time around, however this holiday was.

Even better than our first visit!


By K Colley on 21-Sep-2015

We were so impressed with Polfages when we visited in 2014 that we decided to return again this year. Improvements had been made around the pool with a lovely seating area along with more sunbeds, and the view was just as spectacular as before. We stayed in Belcaire again with other members of our family having Mazamet which was great with the adjoining door. The accommodation is very clean and well equipped & all 10 of us had a fantastic week. Andrew & Jo really couldn't do enough for us; they are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. I'm sure we'll be returning in 2016.

Very comfortable stay with very helpful hosts


By Annette Gesoff on 07-Sep-2015

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay in Calmont. Very comfortable, recently renovated house with everything we needed. Beautiful area and very restful place to stay. Andrew and Jo were fantastic hosts - really welcoming. And Andrew's meal cooking in the evenings was brilliant! Delicious food, reasonably priced and it was great to go out for the day and know that we had a lovely meal waiting for us when we got back. Would definitely recommend this place!

Relaxing rural break in France


By Stewart F on 19-Jul-2015

We enjoyed a very relaxing family friendly holiday in this rural setting near Mirepoix. Accommodation was excellent and the hosts (Andrew and Jo) were very welcoming. Would strongly recommend the property which is well situated to take advantage of the area being only 10 mins drive from Mirepoix.

Stay at Polfages


By Anonymous on 11-Jul-2015

This was a lovely place to stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful and not intrusive. The accommodation was spacious and well equipped and very well presented. The kids loved the pool which was an ideal size and had a splendid view. Lots of interesting things to see and do within easy driving distance but you could also easily just relax at the villa instead. Would definitely recommend to others.

Lovely quiet gite close to Mirepoix


By James M on 04-Jul-2015

We stayed in Belclaire with our two dogs for two weeks and had a lovely time. The gite is great, well equipped and there is plenty of space both inside and out. The shared pool was a welcome relief from the sunshine and never got busy as there are a maximum of three gites sharing it. Andrew, Jo and Jasmine (plus Rufus an Carmen) make you feel very welcome from the off. There are plenty of walks which can be taken right from the door step which is great especially if you have dogs - we headed out in the early morning and late evening to avoid the heat! There is plenty to do in the surrounding area including visiting Mirepoix, Carcassonne, Bram and Lac Montbel the latter being a large lake which you can walk around or paddle across. The canals at Bram and Castelnaudary are accessible and shaded for another nice walk. And there is a seafood restaurant on the Canal in Bram which is definitely recommended. Good wine can be purchased from Domaine Le Fort en-route to Carcassonne - they also have a stall at the market in Mirepoix. If you happen to be there on Bastille Day then make sure you travel to Carcassonne for he amazing fireworks around 1030pm. A few restaurant recommendations in Mirepoix: Chez Paps - Best cassoulet we tasted Restaurant Llobet - Great steak and whole baked fish Le Commerce - simple tasty french food and menu in a lovely courtyard garden Cafe Castignolles - not so good with average at best food! We had a great two weeks and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Heather and James

Stunning views over the countryside


By Lynn S on 16-May-2015

Fabulous location for a lover of the countryside. Stunning views of Pyrenees. If you are wanting to escape the rat race then this is the place to be. On arrival we were greeted by the English owners who were very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. The gite was recently refurbished to a very high standard and was very welcoming with all the home comforts, such as English TV, very comfy beds, well equipped kitchen. The gite was very clean and tidy throughout. Fresh eggs were available from the owners Jo and Andrew who live next door. They offered to cook for us for an additional fee. I would highly recommend this- the food was fabulous, I would certainly plan a return visit.

Stunning views, fabulous location


By Tom P on 30-Apr-2015

My family and I had the pleasure of staying in Polfage for a week in April. An absolutely fantastic place to stay with stunning views of the French countryside. Andrew and Jo were incredibly nice and welcoming doing their utmost to for us to enjoy their special place. The gîte (Calmont) is tastefully furnished with everything needed for a great stay. Well equipped kitchen and spacious sitting/dining room. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable each having an ensuite with heated towel rails and with generous size showers. The beds were very comfortable with lovely crisp sheets equalling any five star hotel. The quality of bedding was simply fabulous. Needless to say, we slept extremely well every night. We had our own private terrace and it was lovely to sit out and have breakfast with great views of the rolling countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed the home cooked meals using fresh organic seasonal produce along with local wines and cheeses. All our dietary requirements were well catered for. The children loved the fresh homemade pizzas cooked in the pizza oven. All meals were of an amazingly high standard allowing us to enjoy the fabulous gastronomic region of South West France. Well done Andrew and Jo.

Cycling in lower Pyrenees


By R Mackay on 20-Dec-2014

My wife and I stayed at Belcaire for a week in late Sept / Early October. The gite is situated on a hill with panoramic views of the surrounding area. Recently renovated, it was spacious and well equipped. On arrival, we were given a bowl of fruit, a bottle of wine and fresh eggs laid that morning by the hens. There were also extras like milk, spices, cooking oils etc. All unexpected, but very welcome. The owners, Andrew and Jo, were very friendly and welcoming. Andrew was very knowledgeable about the area and had prepared a booklet on local towns and sights to visit. Wi-Fi worked for our laptop and phones, but was problematic for I pads. BBC TV and a number of books were also available. We were on a cycling holiday and, at this time of year, this area is an excellent location for cycling. There is a vast network of roads that link the many small villages and cars were few and far between, except near Pamiers. The roads were also in good condition. There are a few long stretches of flat roads but mostly rolling hills, but the hills are not too steep. The Gite is on the top of a hill and you need to retain a few calories for the final climb of the day. We had a very enjoyable holiday
