Wonderful place and space

  • 4 of 5
Great property with lots of space for a big family or friends. Fabulous, large garden and terrace for eating outdoors. Pool was clean and thoroughly enjoyed. Helpful and relaxed hosts with plenty of local info to share. Lots of local activities for all the family - ropes course, Gorge de la Frau, Montsegur all on the doorstep and highly memorable. DVDs and books and games available, useful for the wetter mountain days. We would be VERY happy to come back again, and were sorry you were booked up for this year again already.

De très agréables vacances

  • 5 of 5
La maison est trés agréable et lumineuse. Aménagée de façon simple et avec goût... mais aussi bcp de luxe : 1 salle de bain par chambre ! Le cadre est magnifique : vue sur les montagnes de la maison ou de la piscine ; beaucoup de calme, de verdure et surtout des hôtes très accueillants. Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances et recommandons cette location.

Chez Hawkins is situated in the Village of Fougax et Barrineuf in the foothills of the Pyrennees. The Cathar castle, Montsegur, towers over the valley, with other Cathar castles, perched on their 'pogs' stretching down to the Mediterranean. This area is steeped in history with Carcassonne, Mirepoix and Foix nearby. This is the backdrop for Kate Mosse's best selling novel Labyrinth.

There are things to do and see all year round. The area is famous for its cycling, horse-riding, mountain walking, mountain biking, road biking, canoeing and white-water rafting. There is Skiing in the winter, both downhill and cross country, very close by.

Sailing is available on the nearby Lac de Montbel.

Nearby are the prehistoric caves of Niaux and Mas d'Azil, the former with their wall drawings of bison, horses and ibex.

By car, typical travel times are as follows:

Toulouse Airport - 1.5 h.

Carcassonne - 1.0 h.

Perpignan - 1.5 h.

Girona - 3 h.
