Purpose made private holiday apartment in entire 1st floor of our home with own access via external stairs. 10 mins level walk to Mirepoix medieval centre. 5 mins walk to supermarket. Comfortable and well equipped living/kitchen with UK freesat TV. Large and cosy double bedroom with balcony. Further smaller bedroom. Airy modern shower room. Sole use of 1st floor sun terrace. Shared use (with owners) of 100m garden and private pool by individual arrangement to ensure complete privacy for guests.

L'allotjament

We are a retired professional couple who fell in love with this beautiful area about 5 years ago. In 2015 we bought our French house with the intention of making a separate apartment for guests so that our family, friends and others could share what we love here. The work took until early 2017 and we have tried to do everything to the highest of standards including using original art from our collection to make the place interesting and attractive. It's easy to find, on the road heading South out of Mirepoix.
Access is via an external staircase from the off road parking area to the sun terrace then into a hallway.
The rear facing living room/ kitchen with lovely views over the garden and local hills is very well equipped with flat screen TV receiving full UK and Irish Freesat channels, a quality CD and DVD player, and a comfortable sofa and chair. The extensive kitchen equipment includes a four zone induction hob, microwave and a full size oven.
There is a quality 160cm bed in the double bedroom and we also have a double aspect smaller second bedroom with a quality 90cm bed. We can therefore accommodate a couple who may not want to share a bed or a couple and a third person. Both bedrooms have lots of drawers and clothes hanging space.
The spacious shower room was completely renovated in 2016 with new sanitary ware and wall and floor tiles. There is a washing machine housed in a cupboard in the shower room.
There is fast, free WiFi throughout the apartment. Our south facing 100m garden used to be an orchard (verger) and while it gets the sun all day the remaining cherry, plum, apple, pear and fig trees give welcome shade.
We built our pool, deck and pool house in 2016. The pool area is very private and not visible from the house. The pool is heated by a solar heater from May onwards to a temperature of about 26 degrees C. From around mid June the sun alone is sufficient to maintain a temperature of around 30 degrees C. It is 1.2 metres deep, set partially into the ground.
The large deck is great for sunbathing and eating al fresco and is equipped with an electric awning to give easily variable amounts of shade. The spacious pool house started life as a 9 metre 5th wheel caravan and has a fully equipped kitchen with full size fridge-freezer, a table and bench, a sofa and reclining chair, a hifi with internal and external speakers and Freeview TV and radio.
At the end of the garden under the shade of 60 foot Acacia trees runs the Countirou, a small tributary of the river Hers.

Added on the 1st of October 2017 ; this is the end of our first season as holiday hosts. It has been a very enjoyable experience and we have met some really lovely, interesting people who have left the very positive feedback in the reviews at the foot of our listing. We have had further kind things said about us in our guest book and on other online sites which we would like to share here:

Anna;" ...we are already missing your lovely apartment. The only downside to staying here is that no Airbnb in the future will be as good!."

Peter; "The gite was beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean with lovely artistic touches. Everything was there to make our stay perfect. Great thought has been given to everything in the apartment."

Richard; " The apartment was stunning, the location was perfect and we were made to feel so welcome. Our stay exceeded all expectations. Thank you for your hospitality and readiness to make sure we had everything we needed"

Val; ".......superbly appointed and decorated, very clean and
comfortable with thoughtful touches.....Dave and Carolyn are delightful hosts who went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed.....everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and an entertaining, personal 'guide to'......"

Beverley; "Well done on the decor. A wonderfully appointed place to stay and enjoy. The pool is just right and so is the welcome and information...."

Eilis; "Dave and Carolyn are such a warm, cheerful and welcoming couple. We will be back!

Irene; "The gite is amazing with every home comfort you could wish for and even more on top!.......fantastic hosts - going the extra mile to make sure we had a very pleasant and happy stay. The Gite is exceptional - superbly decorated and in very good taste. Exceptionally clean throughout with all the rooms airy and light. All in all, it certainly exceeded our (URL HIDDEN) outstanding place to stay."

Carole; "......we took full advantage of the swimming pool and it's terrace which is an ideal corner for relaxing in total privacy! We will have very good memories of our stay in Mirepoix"

Thank you so much, all of you, for your appreciation and in some cases, parting gifts! We genuinely hope to meet you all again soon.

Serveis i zones comuns

Our guests have sole use of the first floor apartment and sun terrace and shared use, with us, of the garden and pool. We live in the ground floor and have a private outside space next to our living room .The pool area is very private and we want our guests to be able to enjoy it in total privacy so we tailor our use of the pool around our guest's needs. If you want a day lazing around the pool that's OK, we'll use it when you go off exploring. Its just a case of keeping everyone informed, so it can be enjoyed to the full.

Interacció amb els hostes

We live here, so of course we tend to be around. We understand that some people will want more help and information than others so we will be available as you need us, without being obtrusive.

Altres aspectes destacables

We have two small quiet dogs who like people but often not other dogs, so we regret that we must have a no pets policy. They do not have access to the apartment. . We are situated in a quiet residential area so we would expect consideration to be shown to our neighbours, especially around noise after 11pm

We travelled to Mirepoix for a friends wedding taking place close by. From the time of booking Dave was in touch regularly giving directions and information. Dave and Carolyn were exceptional hosts- they made us feel so welcome and were incredibly helpful. The apartment itself is just gorgeous- two fine sized bedrooms, bright and beautifully decorated as well as a big bathroom and cozy/compact living-kitchen area. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need as well as tea/coffee etc. After a long day's travelling our wonderful hosts made our day by having some cool drinks in the fridge and a some pastries to nibble on. So thoughtful !! We had a little look around the garden and the pool with it's own pool house! So pretty. They are a short walk from the village (5-10 mins) and even closer to a large supermarket. The only downside to our stay was that it wasn't long enough! This area of France is amazing and I can't wait to be back. Thanks again Dave and Carolyn!!

This airbnb is a fantastic place to stay: clean and beautiful apartment, easy access to shops and restaurants in the charming town of Mirepoix with the benefit of two excellent hosts. I would not hesitate in recommending this place to stay. We will certainly be back! :-)

Thank you so much Anna for your very positive feedback. Comments like these and meeting outgoing, appreciative people like you and Mairead make all the hard work worthwhile. You left the apartment so clean and tidy it looked scarcely used, for which many thanks again. Very glad to hear you would like to return - you are always most welcome!

Dave's place was beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need. A lot of thought and attention has been given to decorating the Gite. Extremely comfortable and private. Dave and Carolyn were extremely helpful, welcoming and made sure we enjoyed our experience. The information provided in the manual for guests was extensive. The best I have seen

Very many thanks Julie and Peter for your lovely review, your equally kind words in our guest book and for leaving the apartment spotless. We very much enjoyed meeting you both and we are delighted that you enjoyed our space, Mirepoix and so much of this wonderful part of France on your extensive daily travels. We put a good deal of work into the manual; it's great to have such appreciative feedback! You were perfect guests and it would be great to see you again sometime. You're very welcome anytime!

Dave and Carolyn's apartment was a brilliant find! The apartment itself is spacious, very well equipped, comfortable and beautifully decorated. There is also a real sense of privacy. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast and an evening meal on the balcony. The information left in the flat about the accommodation and the area is comprehensive with the added bonus that the folder was an entertaining read with nice touches of humour. The hosts were warm and welcoming without ever being overbearing. We felt that they genuinely wanted us to have a good stay. The position is brilliant for exploring the area or just taking a short walk into Mirepoix to enjoy the shops, cafes or the extraordinary Monday market. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to enjoy the pool and the fantastically well equipped pool house.

Thank you so much, Richard for a lovely review. We have tried so hard to get things right with the apartment so its wonderful to receive so much positive feedback so early in our hosting career. Thank you also for the very kind entry in our guest book, and for leaving the apartment so clean and (URL HIDDEN) was great to meet you and Jane; you were perfect guests and we very much hope to see you again for a go in the pool!

L'appartement de Dave est très agréable à vivre, aéré et lumineux. Les chambres et la salle de bain sont particulièrement spacieuses et la vue du salon sur le jardin est très agréable. Quant à la piscine située dans le jardin à l'abri des regards avec sa terrasse en bois est vraiment un endroit idéal de détente. Attention toutefois aux personnes ayant des difficultés pour se déplacer car l'appartement étant situé au premier étage on y accède par un escalier.
