RURAL LOCATION IN VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS, CLOSE TO THE BASTIDE TOWN OF MIREPOIX

Treziers Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4. 2 bedroom three storey 19th century house gite. Treziers is a tiny agricultural village, with no amenities other than a visiting bread van. It is 9kms from Mirepoix, one of the regions most beautiful Bastide towns; a hive of summer activity and with a great Monday morning market. A car is essential, and we have safe, easy parking for you. Look on YouTube and you can see a simple film about the gite; put in La Borde d'Hercule, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90iZ0MBpw5E&feature=youtu.be

La Borde de l'Hercule is a comfortably refurbished two bedroom cottage, adjacent to our own house. With 2 bedrooms, Living Room, Balcony, Dining Room, modern Kitchen, bathroom and outdoor patio & terrace for outdoor eating and relaxing. It is completely private with its own entrances, and access to the 10X4m pool, which is shared only with us. The kitchen and bathroom are both well equipped, and the Living Room has a TV, DVD, stereo, comfortable sofas and a highly efficient woodburner for the cooler months. TV reception is variable; Sky News will keep you up-to-date, but BBC and ITV stations are often unavailable. The WiFi will allow you to use ipads or laptops for these however. We are just on the edge of the village, with neighbouring houses some distance away and not overlooking the property in any way. Our large garden, which regularly wins the Aude Fleurie competition in the Gite category, is open for you to explore. We have a large orchard with a host of varied fruit trees (cherries/peaches/plums/apples etc) you can pick from in season as long as you don't let the chickens out! The house is on a quiet lane with only occasional cars.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

Further details for this vacation rental

Note:

The Pool is shared only with us and we tend to swim early & late, occasionally having friends to swim also. We fit around guests use of the pool and find that they regard the pool as almost private. We maintain the pool's condition almost daily, and the Deck with its' loungers, table & chairs. We are on a low ridge, and we are not bothered with mosquitoes at all, with often a gentle breeze in the heat of the Summer. The Gite is next door to our house, but completely private. We are able to help with suggestions for lots of activities and places to visit and the occasional medical emergency.

Further Details:

This area is well known for its Cathar castles, and Montsegur, possibly the most famous shimmers in the middle distance as you look towards the mountains. Other major ones such as Peyrepertuse & Queribus are a little further away and minor ones such as Puivert and the ruin of Lagarde, which is just across the valley, are close by. Mirepoix is the main attraction in this area, with its Monday market, weekly Festivals(marionettes/ceramics/jazz/apple etc) and lots of good restaurants or pizza places. There is a big supermarché on the outskirts, and cafés to sit and watch the world go by. Other good markets are in Lavelanet very local - Friday) and Limoux also Friday). Towards the mountains are several highly visit-able cave systems, with paintings at Niaux or underground rivers at several others; we have the info ready for you. This is an excellent area for walking and other outdoor activities, with horse-riding, white water rafting and cycling being very popular. The Tour de France always seems to come through this region as it leaves the Pyrenees, usually in mid July. We have come to understand why this is such a spectacle for the French, and have enjoyed seeing the rising British cycle stars take on the torturous climbs. Good bikes are available for hire, and the 30km Voie Verte (a converted railway line) passes our door as it goes from Mirepoix, via Chalabre to Lavelanet. The bike hire place is close to Lac Montbel, a large lake where there's good swimming, boating and walking. A little to the north is the canal du Midi which goes from Toulouse via Carcassonne to the Med. There's a large canal basin at Castelnaudary, and the opportunity to eat Cassoulet at source, though maybe not in summer! However, we have often found that guests just want to laze in the garden or by the pool.

Booking Notes:

We ask guests to confirm their booking with a 25% Non Refundable Deposit. This secures the dates, and 2 months before your arrival we will ask you for the balance payment which can be made in sterling or euros.
