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 lifestyle 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 overlooking 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.

Our gite Calmont is made up of a well equipped kitchen and dining area leading through to a comfortable lounge. The lounge leads onto the private terrace and BBQ area, where you live the alfresco lifestyle whilst relaxing with the stunning views over your own private garden area. You can access the rest of the large gardens and swimming pool from the terrace.

Upstairs there are 2 spacious bedrooms each with en-suite. Both bedrooms can be arranged with either 2 single beds or a super king size bed, offering you maximum flexibility and a great night's sleep. Both bed rooms have access to their own private balcony where you can watch the sun come up over the rolling hills whilst enjoying a morning coffee. There is access to WIFI and English TV channels so you can stay in touch with the world should you so desire.

Idyllic location, stunning views and perfect hosts!


By Sara H on 09-Oct-2016

We've stayed with Andrew and Jo 3 times and their hospitality and attention to detail has always been beyond compare. They've created beautiful gites and the balcony on this end gite provides perfect views and privacy. We simply can't praise them enough!

Fantastic position with beautiful views, Jo and Andrew are excellent hosts


By Pauline W on 24-Sep-2016

Pol Fages is in an ideal position with amazing views of the surrounding countryside, the sunrise and sunset is to die for. Jo and Andrew could not have been more helpful and the dogs were an added bonus for us. We love Rufus hehe. The Belaire Gite was well appointed, especially the kitchen, lounge and bedrooms, although there is a little remedial work required (this is on going). The patio area was perfect for our needs, with an excellent BBQ and gave great views and wonderful sunrises. The pool area also needs some remedial work but again this is planned for the Autumn. If you want peace, tranquillity and beautiful surroundings, I recommend the Gites without doubt. Finally, a holiday is not just what YOU make it, it is what your hosts make it and Jo and Andrew went the extra mile to ensure we had a great time. Thanks to you both!!!!!

A wonderful property in a glorious setting


By Anna B on 30-Aug-2016

From the very first moment, the owners Jo and Andy couldn't do anything more for us. We absolutely loved the rolling hills and beautiful French countryside and every aspect of the house is beautiful. The views are to die for, with mountains to the North and South and fields and farms surrounding this property. We found our three bedroom gite very spacious with everything that we needed. All three bedrooms were large and with three bathrooms we had plenty of room, with very hot, powerful showers in each bathroom (which is always nice after a day in the sun). The beds were extremely comfy, and we had all creature comforts like English TV, DVD, Wifi etc. The pool area was lovely with large grassed areas and we had our own patio with dining chairs and table and barbecue. Jo & Andy helped us to hire and get a bike delivered and as an additional service they offer shopping and cooking (with a very nice pizza oven in the garden - our boys loved the home made pizzas). We felt like we were part of the family with our children helping to feed the goats, hens, cats and dogs and they were always on hand to assist or give advice whenever we asked. There is also a lovely feel to the place, with history and solitude and the perfect place to relax. We had the best time there, and loved visiting the nearby town of Mirepoix which was new to us. We went to Lac de Montbel which is about a 30-40 minute drive and has a beach, pedalo, boats, swimming, cafe etc. and good for the children. Most of the week we had glorious sunshine and there are some very quiet roads that we walked, ran and cycled on nearby. All in all such a brilliant week, would recommend to anyone and are planning to return there in summer 2016. Thanks to Jo & Andy for welcoming us into their home - they are such a wonderful couple. All the gites are furnished to a very high standard and are extremely comfortable and homely. Thanks for everything, the Bartys family

Wonderful Holiday Retreat


By Jackie W on 18-Aug-2016

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 week holiday at Polfages, which was really a home from home with the addition of amazing scenery and weather. The Gite offered every comfort and it was just great to be able to get up on a morning to go for lovely walks, enjoy a swim and then breakfast on the terrace. We could not get enough of the stunning views and peaceful location- even 3 weeks was not enough and we will be hoping to return in the near future. Andrew and Jo made us truly welcome; they provide a fantastic holiday retreat where it really is possible to unwind and enjoy life at a relaxing pace. They were always happy to help whether it was suggesting ideas of places to visit, supplying delicious fresh eggs for supper and of course providing meals such as Andrew's home made pizzas and fresh garden salads in such beautiful surroundings. We would just like to thankyou Andrew and Jo, for all you did in enabling our group to enjoy such a wonderful holiday- you were so flexible and accommodating and we couldn't ask for anything more. Hopefully we will have opportunity to come out again and enjoy lots more experiences at your delightful home.

Everything we could have wished for!


By Robin H on 22-Jul-2016

We wanted a typical French Gite, traditional yet fully equipped with all,the mod cons. We wanted to be slightly off the beaten track but within easy access of good restaurants and supermarket. We wanted to be able to fly relatively inexpensively and be within a short drive of our destination when we landed. The location needed to be within reach of the beautiful Pyrenees , the Mediterranean coast and with good access to the abundant historical sights that are prevalent in this region. To cap it off we wanted a swimming pool and good weather. Well, we got all that , including the sunshine but in addition we got two wonderful hosts . Both Andrew and Jo were so helpful and friendly . Their knowledge of the area and accompanying advice helped us to make the most of our stay. I haven't mentioned yet the scenery. Think of Tuscany mixed with the Napa valley and a dash of Cotswolds , wonderful. We heartily recommend this property and fully intend to make a return visit Robin and Christine Holt.

Polfages, even better than the described


By Adam P on 13-May-2016

We have just spent a really relaxing and enjoyable week at Polfages. The gite was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The hosts Andrew and Jo were very friendly and able to suggest some of the best things to do during our stay, allowing us to get the most out of the holiday. We took advantage of having the 1st shop done for us, meaning that everything we needed as there when we arrived and we could just settle in. Over the week we had a number of meals cooked for us and it was great to be able to just come in after a busy day site seeing and enjoy a really good home cooked meal. Over all a relaxing and beautiful place to stay with stunning views and we could not have asked for more. We thoroughly recommended it.

Beyond-outstanding gite in wonderful countryside

A wonderful relaxing stay


By M E D on 18-Mar-2016

The house was lovely and extremely comfortable and Jo and Andrew couldn't have been kinder. We opted to eat in on several evenings and Andrew cooked us beautiful meals, with plenty of choice. We enjoyed many afternoons around the pool, admiring the countryside which is extremely beautiful. I highly recommend Polfages.

Beautiful Place


By Kate C on 17-Oct-2015

Along with my husband and two Australian friends we stayed for a week at Polfage, it was a truly lovely break. The gite had everything we needed and the welcome from Andrew and Jo and Jasmine was very warm. The views from Polfage across the French countryside in the morning and evenings was sublime and those images remain with us now we are back in Scotland. It was also a great base from which to tour that part of France. Andrew's local knowledge of places to see and things to do was excellent and made our trip even better. The two dogs were extremely friendly and well trained and fresh eggs from the chickens made for a lovely breakfast. We would highly recommend Polfage for a holiday. Kate and Richard Cairns

Great place to stay


By Nona O on 12-Oct-2015

We stayed for one week at Polfages with 2 friends in a 2 bed gite. It was wonderful. The weather was perfect and the gite was perfect particularly at the end of the row of three. The gite is very comfortable and has every convenience. Andrew and Jo are very helpful with information about the area and where to go. You will need a car - it is 11 kms from Mirepoix but it was a pleasure to drive around (or be driven in our case) in the glorious, autumnal countryside. The cats, dogs, chooks, veggie patch all add to the wonderful views. Would happily stay again

Perfect gite amongst the sunflowers!


By Paul N on 07-Sep-2015

We had a fantastic fortnight staying at Polfages near Villautou. The site had been newly refurbished and was completed to a very high standard. The owners Andrew and Jo couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The area is stunningly beautiful set amongst the rolling fields of sunflowers and is well place for trips into picturesque Mirepoix and south to Montsegur. All in all a lovely holiday and we're already trying to work out when to return!

A Little Piece of Heaven.


By Kate R on 15-Aug-2015

The photos of Jj French bites do not do the property justice. We stayed in gite Mazamet and it was huge! Large open plan kitchen/dining on the ground floor that looked out onto the terrace, garden and pool. 3 large bedrooms upstairs, each with a large ensuing bathroom. All very well appointed. Everything worked, and the beds were super comfy. This is an old (but modernised) building that was easy to keep cool during the day with shutters. Andrew and Jo were super helpful, and the kids loved having tHe dogs and chickens hanging around. The views from the pool over the valley were amazing, and watching the sunsets from Andrew's terrace became a bit of a nightly habit. Andrew and Jo are very well integrated into the local community, with all of the local gossip.......... We visited Montsegur castle, Carcassone cite, Carcassone plage ( a must for the adventure water area), St Hilaire Abbey. Mirepoix is an amazing medieval town. If you're visiting Cacassone, park in Gambetti square and walk up over the Pont Vieux for the best views. We'd love to return next year, definitely timing a visit with the Fanjeaux fete, and hopefully bringing our friends!

Amazing Time at Polfage


By Ulrike F on 27-Jul-2015

Our family had the most amazing time at Polfage! The Gite was a lovely mixture of country house but with modern facilities. It was the perfect layout for our large family with four kids! The owners, Jo and Andrew have been very kind and helpful at all times and made us feel very welcome! It's been the perfect country hideaway to get away from every day's stress and we could really relax and enjoy ourselves and splash at the nice pool! We warmly recommend Polfage to every family! Thumbs up big time!!!!!

High-spec accommodation in a beautiful location


By Sharon on 03-Jun-2015

We stayed for one week at the end of May in the gite 'Calmont' - a two bedroom (both en-suite) newly completed gite. The location is stunning - rolling countryside in all directions and fabulous views all round. The situation is tranquil but not too far (about 15 mins) from towns like Mirepoix with its medieval houses, shops and restaurants. The foothills of the Pyrenees, the coast and cities like Carcassonne and Narbonne are all reachable within an hour by car. Cathar sites like Montsegur are within easy reach. There are plenty of quiet lanes and tracks to explore on foot and the nature (particularly wild birds and flowers) is breathtaking. Andrew and Jo - the English owners (French spoken) - have worked hard to make the accommodation at Polfages comfortable, high-spec and well-equipped. They are a lovely family who are well-integrated into the local community and have a wealth of local knowledge to help a first-time visitor to the area. Our highest recommendation is that we want to return!
