Well equipped and recently renovated gites. Owners are very welcoming and if you're looking for great good freshly prepared food to order you've found the right place! Great pizzas from the pizza oven!
Plenty to see in this beautiful part of France and a great find!
If you are looking for some relaxing days, this is the place. Polfages is about 10 min. by car from Mirepoix, and 1h from Toulouse. Amazing countryside landscape, clean and well-maintained property. Andrew and Jo are a very friendly couple.
We stayed for one week at the end of May in the gite 'Calmont' - a two bedroom (both en-suite) newly completed gite. The location is stunning - rolling countryside in all directions and fabulous views from every bedroom window. The situation is tranquil but not too far (about 15 mins) from towns like Mirepoix with its medieval houses, shops and restaurants. The foothills of the Pyrenees, the coast and cities like Carcassonne and Narbonne are all reachable in around an hour by car. Cathar sites like Montsegur are within easy reach. There are plenty of quiet lanes and tracks to explore on foot and the nature (particularly wild birds and flowers) is breathtaking.
Andrew and Jo - the English owners (French spoken) - have worked hard to make the accommodation at Polfages comfortable, high-spec and well-equipped. They are a lovely family who are well-integrated into the local community and have a wealth of local knowledge to help a first-time visitor to the area.
Our highest recommendation is that we want to return!

If you want either a place to base yourself for touring or a place for quiet relaxation, this is well worth considering. The gites are all beautifully appointed with stunning views. We stayed for a week and the owners who live in the adjoining house were friendly and always happy to help with their extensive local knowledge. We booked in for a meal cooked by the owner, superb fresh local food I would recommend you sample.
The property is clean and homely with all the amenities that you would have in a first class rental property. Views are exceptional and there is a relaxing feel to the gite. Just what you hope for on a holiday. ! Able to sightsee or just relax overlooking the beautiful views. The beds and bedding are worth mentioning as they are superb !!! Lovely crisp clean sheets and a very comfortable bed indeed.
We also took the opportunity to enjoy a meal cooked by the owners (Andrew and Jo )whilst out there as advertised . It was delicious and I would certainly take up this option again .
Andrew and Jo were also able to help us with many hints and tips on what to see and where to go. Very useful when the area is new to you. They both made you very welcome indeed.
We will be returning in May next year. Already booked.
