What makes this farmhouse unique

The property is set in its own valley and completely private. It is the ultimate "get away from it all" location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is very comfortable and the pool has been well used.

The children have enjoyed walks with the dogs and collecting eggs.

Thank you Caroline for cooking a lovely meal for us and thank you Phil for all your help and for keeping the children entertained.

Marmiflet is located in the Langedoc Rouissillon region – close to the border of Ariège in Midi-Pyrénées. There is a glorious panoramic view of the mountains from the top of the drive and from high points around the property.

The Pyrénées, and Andorra, are about one and a half hours’ by car, the coast about one and a quarter hours’ (Narbonne) and Toulouse one hour.

St. Gaudéric is a rural hamlet. The nearest shopping and amenities are just eight kilometers away in Mirepoix – a medieval town of great charm possessing a noted Cathedral, wooden coverts and a popular Monday market.

The largest wine-producing region in France, Langedoc Rouissillon is noted not only for very drinkable red, rose and white wines, but also Blanquette de Limoux – a delicious sparkling wine older in origin than Champagne. Other local specialties include a huge variety of cheeses, foie gras, asparagus, melons, garlic, honey (and soaps), duck meat products to mention just a few.

Other Activities: Bird/nature watching, painting, photography.

A perfect place for a family celebration

  • 5 of 5

A delightful old farmhouse, comfortable and full of character, ample accommodation for our party of 6 adults and 4 teenagers, excellent pool, unfailingly helpful hosts! Great opportunities for walks in the woodlands, a delicious supper on our arrival, and plenty to do in the area. We had a fantastic time!
