About Brian and Georgette Harries
We are Brian and Georgette Harries, a British couple who have lived in many countries all over the world thanks to a career managing luxury hotel properties. We live in England with our teenage son and spend our time between there and France - the Ariege region is perfect for active teenagers; our son loves rock climbing and kayaking and we love to cook and entertain. We love the markets and we love walking and hiking and discovering hidden gems whether they be panoramic views, restaurants in perfect settings or local seasonal produce.. but recent commitments have us spending more time in England, so we have decided to share our home away from home and look forward to introducing others to the delights of Baragne and the Ariege region.
Brian and Georgette Harries purchased this house in 2009
Why Brian and Georgette Harries chose Foix
We have always loved France, and the French way of life and spent about 10 years searching for 'that special place'. Having explored everywhere from Provence to Aude, we eventually discovered the Ariege region and fell in love with the whole area. Mountains, castles, lakes, rivers and waterfalls - it has everything we were looking for and when we found 'Baragne' - one look and the decision was made! Baragne has the total 'wow' factor we were looking for! Driving up through the hamlet does not prepare you for what you about to find... On entering the house all is revealed - the tranquillity and privacy are second to none, and yes we are biased but we absolutely love it! We bought the house 5 years ago and have spent a large part of our time there, bringing it up to our high standards.
What makes this house unique
We call 'Baragne' our sanctuary and it really does feel like that to us. We have wonderful access to all the major routes if we want to get out and about exploring all the delights of the area, or if we just want to kick back and relax - 'Baragne' is such a stress-free environment that within minutes of being there, we feel ourselves unwinding. Depending on the time of year, the changing seasons all have something wonderful to offer, whether it is the brilliant winter snow, the fabulous Spring flowers and waterfalls, or the deer, foxes and wild boar in our fields and woods in the Summer and Autumn. Our large deck overlooking the fields with the stream running alongside, is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine, for breakfast, lunch and for a perfect evening bbq...
