Situated near the Pyrenees Ariege, our charming farmhouse (built in 1786) is set in gardens, fields and forest.
The calm and sweetness of the surrounding nature make Roudeille Domaine ideal setting for rest and relaxation. Depending on the time of your stay, you can admire the fields of sunflowers, observe many varieties of birds, or enjoy fresh fruits from our garden - cherries, figs, walnuts ...
The Roudeille Estate is also the ideal starting point for exploring this region of France, perhaps less known but fascinating. Toulouse, Carcassonne, Narbonne, Andorra and Spain are easily accessible destinations for a day trip. The region also provides a wide selection of closest walks: medieval villages, Cathar castles, hiking, caves, etc.
The property is secluded, surrounded by farmland, but within easy reach of Toulouse and Carcassone to the North and the rest of the Arieg to the South.
However the location only tells a small part as to what makes this a wonderful place to stay. The Gite offers plenty of space, is well laid out, furnished to a high standard and with plenty of well thought out touches. Sallyann and Barry are delightful hosts, good company, and always wanting to ensure you get the best from your stay with them.
The pool is clean and of a good size and catches plenty of sun, a great place to relax, read and unwind.
The area is not touristy until you visit places such as Foix, but even then that is done in the usual stylish French way;
We found plenty to do away from the Gite , with help from our hosts and their excellent local knowledge.
But I guess anyone who reads this wants to know whether or not the property is a good base and worth staying at. The answer is emphatically YES. Its a superb property, warm, welcoming, comfortable and run by two of the nicest people you could want to be guests of.
If you are thinking of staying in this area, please give this property serious consideration, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
We stayed at a very nice little gem at Saverdun France, a little south of Toulouse.
It is a very large old establishment that has been made into 5-6 excellent apartments with some having separate kitchens. The setting is very relaxing and there is a lot of history to explore in the surrounding area.
The hosts Barry & Sallyanne are very friendly, accommodating and provide a very good ambiance for your stay. They provide breakfast as part of your stay & other meals on request. All are very good.
We would recommend this establishment to anyone & hope to return to enjoy another stay.
Sallyann and Barry thank you for the warm welcome, great rooms, and fabulous food. Despite the weather we had a terrific time. The rooms are spacious, light and clean. Plenty of hot water with good pressure in the shower and the views from each room are wonderful. It was great to meet the chickens who provided our breakfast eggs and of course the goats. Next time we hope to be able to enjoy a swim in the inviting looking swimming pool! However, sitting by the fire in the lounge room was a great compensation. We will be back!
At the end of August, we had a great stay at Domaine La Roudeille! Sallyann and Barry are a lovely couple who made us immediately feel at home. Although we booked 2 separate (bed)rooms, it more felt like an appartment because we had our own entrance and nice terrace at the back of the farmhouse. We also appreciated the "library", the cleanliness of the rooms and the dinner which we booked upon our late arrival. The kids had a great time taking care of the chickens and the goats, we all enjoyed the swimming-pool, the peace and quiet of the region and above all Sallyann's and Barry's hospitality!
Having spent many hours looking for a peaceful retreat to recharge our batteries, we finally opted for Domaine de Roudeille and were so glad we did.
From our initial communications detailing our needs, to the day we arrived and the day we reluctantly waved 'Au revoir', this was a delightful, restful and enjoyable sojourn.
Sallyann and Barry are discrete, well-travelled and caring hosts who have worked hard to provide a haven of peace and tranquillity. Frankly, the listings and website don't do the place justice - and we told them so!
Located a few kilometres from a small town with all amenities and 15 minutes from the larger town of Pamiers, the domain is surrounded by lush countryside and woodland (excellent walking) and presaged by a long tree lined private drive. It is an idyllic setting with no road noise or light pollution (the milky way was amazing).
We booked the 2 bed roomed Gite: ample living room with DVD, French TV and comfortable seating and dining for 6; a well resourced kitchen (as committed foodies this was most important/welcome) 2 extremely large and comfortable chambres with en-suite bathrooms and our own private balcony and private garden with more seating and some great birding.
The beauty of Domaine de Roudeille is the layout, enabling different guests to be accommodated - couples in Chambre D'hote; larger families in studios/gites/chambres and extended families through clever adjoining doors and even floors, and yet it offers peace and privacy too.
There is the additional bonus of a beautifully situated swimming pool, an enormous 'Games Barn' with table tennis, french billiards and darts; an orchard and freely roaming hens - 'Hello Mavis' and a couple of bikes for more active adults. The 'games' barn is situated away from the accommodation ensuring peace is maintained. There is also plenty of communal garden space, as well as each studio/gite having 'private' areas.
In the main house, there is a very large 'day room' offering board games, cards, books, DVD's, an honesty bar and comfy chairs for reading as well as a dining room with a real fire for cosy evenings. All guests are welcome.
We were keen to ensure we had a peaceful stay, we work with children all year, and didn't want to hear their joyful noise on holiday; the lay out of the spaces ensured we didn't have to.
All in all, a fabulous stay, with lots to amuse, in a bucolic paradise made extra special by Barry and Sallyann. We will certainly return!
We spent a fabulous two week stay in the Gite Ciel, Zen and Terre.
Domaine de Roudielle is a wonderfully secluded property. Formerly a farmhouse to the main chateau that is located further along the quiet private road … on a bad day two cars come past.
The grounds are sizeable, simple and safe … highlights are the games room (french billiards, darts and table tennis), the friendly chickens, the seating area under the tree for 6pm Pastis and the super shared swimming pool, which has to be commended for the use of purifying salts rather than vast quantities of chlorine.
The gite itself has a light and spacious feel. Sally and Barry have kitted out with all of the comforts that you would hope for. The kitchen is particularly well set up. The quality and selection of equipment gives plenty of options to cook whatever you want. An unusual touch is the inclusion of a number of stock items such as washing up liquid, toilet paper, sugar, salt, herbs, spices and more.
The layout of the first floor gite is as follows: the Zen Room is a double bedroom that is to one end of the property and therefore more private than the other two rooms, perfect as a parents bedroom. The Ciel Room has a double and a single bed, perfect for children … it is spacious and has lots of storage. The Terre Room has a single bed as well as the lounge, dining and kitchen area … Terre is pretty much a studio apartment, albeit a very large one.
In addition, there are two lovely bathrooms (with showers); two walk-in wardrobes and outside is the wooden terrace with table and chairs. As parents we found it particularly useful that we were able to clearly see the pool area from the terrace. In addition, the pool has a code operated motion sensor alarm that automatically resets after ten-minutes of inactivity. Downstairs you have sole use of a patio with a large table, chairs and a gas bbq.
There is a large communal day room downstairs with comfortable seating, chess, books, DVDs and an honesty box for chilled drinks. In addition, there are two other Gites at the Domaine, though for 99% of the time you wouldn’t know it. They are in opposite corners of the property, so in no way overlooking.
It is also worth mentioning that Sally and Barry offer freshly cooked meals at 20Euros per head, including aperitif and wine. The food was lovely … fresh and plentiful.
We thoroughly recommend Domain de Roudeille.
