An oasis of calm

 

Your apartment is attached to our home yet entirely private, with stunning views from your patio. When you’re not out exploring, you can rest amongst our peaceful oasis under the canopy of the trees. Our calming, rustic interior is fully equiped for self-catering, but we can still provide dinners on request, and will treat you to a fresh French breakfast each morning.

Package experiences

"The Ariege is one of the hidden gems of France with its rolling hills, mixed farmland and deciduous woodlands. In one afternoon, we saw more than 50 species of birds, four species of reptiles and hundreds of insects. It really is a naturalists' paradise"

Iolo Williams, Naturalist

"Richard himself was a great guide and we learnt a lot about the birds we were seeing.  He was so helpful in explaining how to recognise the particular species and I only hope that I will remember the lessons next time I spot an eagle or vulture!"

Jill, May 2018

"Really nice gite with great garden. Quiet and lots of privacy. Rich and Yvette are great hosts. Rich has all the local knowledge you need and very helpful with providing information - whether it is sightseeing, walking or birding. Highly recommended!"
