Overview

Ariege Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Gite in a peaceful location with wonderful mountain and valley views

Floc ferme is an old stone farmhouse and barn which has been restored. The gite has retained features from when it was the original barn with lovely beams in the bedrooms and a stone featured fireplace in the lounge. The thickness of the walls means it stays nice and cool during the hot summer months.

There is a spacious garden to sit and enjoy the ever-changing scenery. With a stone built BBQ covered in vines - cook, have a glass of wine and enjoy the uninterrupted views across the valley and towards the Pyrenees. There is plenty of garden space for children to play and enjoy their days.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

Fantastic Holiday at Floc Ferme

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful two week holiday at Floc Ferme.

We stayed in the Main Gite which was spacious and clean and was well equipped. It was a real ‘home from home’. Our children aged 10 and 7 particularly enjoyed the pool which was very refreshing on hot days and had fantastic views of the Pyrenees

The hospitality was second to none. We were made to feel very welcome indeed by Robin and Sue who went out of their way to provide us with their in-depth knowledge of the area which certainly helped us to decide on things to do. They were even kind enough to look after our dog when we went on the cable car and chair lifts at Ax les Thermes.

The accommodation is set in a tranquil setting but is in easy reach of local shops and villages, with a variety of lakes with water sports facilities and outdoor pursuits within 20-30 minutes drive.

The area has so much to offer for those who enjoy exploring and outdoor pursuits. We feel that in our two week holiday we hardly scratched the surface, however this just gives us a reason to go back again! We particularly enjoyed the local town of Mirepoix on market day, the historic city of Carcassonne and the ski resort of Ax Les Thermes.

There are plenty of lakes in the area which offer a variety of water sports. The largest of these, Lac Montbel was our favourite.

This is an absolute jewel and we will certainly be returning again. Five Stars.

A superb place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent a week in the main gite I can highly recommend this property. It is very clean and we were more than warm enough in the chill of December. With views to die for and wonderfully welcoming hosts we plan on returning in the future.

Floc Ferme

  • 5 of 5

An excellent place to stay! You can make your holiday whatever you want here. Relax by the pool and enjoy the beautiful views. Or go cycling, walking, canoing, high ropes all nearby if you feel active. There's plenty of sightseeing and places of interest to visit within a short drive. And the hospitality of Robin and Susie makes it perfect.

vacances magnifique!!

  • 4 of 5

we just spent a fantastic week holidays at the Floc Farm. I would highly recommend this place to all the stressed people who want to relax and unwind! Just sit near the swimming pool with a drink watching the Pyrennees Mountains under the hot sunshine and all your problems will be forgotten.

The Children will equally love it with the swimming pool.

The Gite are very well equiped and very welcoming. There are plenty to do and see in the surrounding region and our hosts Robin and Susie are always here to give us brilliant advice on where to go. And it isn't expensive! So just go and find out what it is like you won't regret it.

Super locatie met fantastische eigenaren

  • 5 of 5

Deze zomer met ons gezin een geweldige week gehad in de main gite van flox.

Een mooie en rustig gelegen vakantiewoning met een uniek uitzicht over de Pyreneen. Het huis was ruim, schoon en van alle gemakken voorzien. De eigenaren zijn hartelijk en behulpzaam. Ondanks de rustige ligging is het een prima uitvalsbasis voor het bezoeken van diverse toeristische plekken. Na terugkomst van een uitstapje kun je verkoeling zoeken in het zwembad.

Een klein minpuntje is de bereikbaarheid van een bakker, maar een goed alternatief zijn afbakbroodjes.

We zijn zeker van plan om hier nog een keer naar toe te gaan.

Un lugar con encanto

  • 5 of 5

Es un lugar fantástico : Combina la posibilidad de actividades diversas como parapente, hípica, etc. para los más movidos... y también tranquilos paseos dentro de un paisaje maravilloso, lleno de sosiego con las montañas del Pirineo al fondo. Excursiones a lugares encantadores como Montségur, o pequeñas joyas arquitectónicas como Camon, Mirelpoix o Foix. Ideal para parejas con hijos pequeños y no tan pequeños ( nuestros hijos estuvieron encantados en la piscina ). La casa reune todas las condiciones de comodidad y confort . Susie y Robin, los propietarios, fueron super amables, atentos, y exquisitamente discretos al tiempo. Muy recomendable.
