The courtyard leads to the main entrance
the house from part way up the drive
the main doors lead from the courtyard into the leaving room
the living room is too big to photograph well - this is one of the sitting areas
the main fireplace, which is very atmospheric in spring or autumn
the other end of the living room, with the pool table, old piano, and the library
the library sitting area area in the evening
the kitchen has oak work tops and is large enough for several cooks
it is very well equipped, to semi-professional standards
the range cooker is tucked under a 300 year old oak beam
its very comfortable for large groups
there are 6 en suite bedrooms, all similar to this
another typical bedroom, simple but comfortable
the simple en suite bathrooms are all like this
you might prefer to eat out in the courtyard, which is a real sun trap
or perhaps on the terrace, looking out over our fields
the grass in front of the terrace looks over to the 12th century village just across the valley
the 11 x 5 m poo is solar heated.  It has its own walled and sheltered garden that gets sun all day
the pool is open until sunset, and cleaned for you regularly
you might like to walk in the grounds - thats the 12th C church in the background
this is the estate from our land, with snow capped Pyrenees in the background

“The perfect retreat”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in November 2014
2
people found this review helpful

I have stayed at Le Puget three times now - twice on family holidays in the height of summer and once in November for a quiet week of writing and walking. I can honestly say it's perfect for both - the family enjoyed the pool, the Pyrenees, the Cathar castles and kayaking the rivers - all within an easy drive - and, of course, the fabulous food and drink. Mirepoix, the nearest town, is superb - a perfectly preserved 13th century market square surrounded by all the cafes, restaurants and food shops you'd put in your dream French town. John and Janey are great hosts - knowledgeable and passionate about the area, its attractions and its produce, equally happy to cook and entertain or to leave you to your own devices. And in the long autumn that lasts till Christmas, the hills were superb for walking, the air clear, and the views to the Pyrenees spectacular. We will be back!

“A peaceful retreat with everything available”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was peace and luxury on tap. We had the 'cottage' (which was enormous!) plus one room in the big house and access everywhere. We sat in the sun reading some of the time; drove to local sites (Carcassonne, Montségur etc); ate out (following John's invaluable advice), brought food in, or had food made for us. It seemed very flexible if you want to decide day-by-day. There was a lot of space - and even a piano!

“A tranquil corner of La France Profonde”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent a supremely relaxing week at Le Puget in the summer of 2014. Our accommodation was the farmhouse which is spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and a lovely place to unwind. Le Puget lies in an attractive and peaceful setting, surrounded by nature and ideal for exploring on foot or just taking in the view. There are various different natural habitats, woods and wildflower meadows, a pond, farmland, wild boar and many species of birds.

John and Janie were very welcoming hosts and a great source of local information and historical knowledge. John cooked truly delicious meals for us using local ingredients accompanied by well-chosen wine - a true gastronomic experience!

Mirepoix is a delightful local town to visit and we also enjoyed some walks in the area, but our priority for the week was relaxation and we found ourselves spending a lot of time in and around the pool, reading, sunbathing and playing table tennis. Le Puget really was the ideal location for our holiday.

“A feast for all the senses”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A stay at Le Puget is a real treat! The spacious and comfortable farmhouse was a wonderful home-from-home (only with a better equipped kitchen, and comfier beds.... Hmmm I wonder if John and Janie would mind if we moved in?) They were the perfect hosts, rustling up delectable food and full of local knowledge from wine to walks. And all set in the most gorgeous scenery in the sun-kissed Pyrenean foothills. A truly blissful, relaxing stay - we'll be back.

“Fantastic Place for a Family Holiday”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I've been meaning to write a review for ages about our fantastic stay at Le Puget in July this year. We were a fairly large party of 6 children of varying ages and 3 adults and the house was ideal for all ages with plenty of space. Stunning walks and views and a lovely pool. There is so much to see and do in that area that a week isn't long enough. John and Janie were so welcoming and helpful, even arranging the Tour de France to pass by at the end of the drive way. They were a mine of information on the history of the region and advice on places to go and organised a delicious dinner for one of our evenings, full of locally sourced food.

Thank you John and Janie, we'd love to come back, if you'll have us!
