About this property

Spacious Gite, Pool and Superb Views of the Pyrenees. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

The property is a recent barn conversion with original wood beams set in peaceful countryside within 5 minutes walk of the village of Manses. We have superb views across open countryside to the Pyrenees.
The property is set in 95 acres of fields and woodland belonging to the owners. This ensures tranquillity as well as privacy.
Guests are welcome to use our 12 metre by 6 metre pool. A large deck to the south allows outdoor dining with views to the Pyrenees.
For those who enjoy walking, the ancient pilgrims route, Chemin du St Jacques de Compostelle, passes by the rear of Le Cazal. Days can be passed by the pool or enjoying nearby activities of walking, hiking, cycling, skydiving, parachuting, rafting, canoeing, horse riding, golf and skiing to name but a few.
Market day in the medieval town of Mirepoix (5 miles) should not be missed. Within easy reach of Carcassonne (50 mins), Toulouse (80 mins), Mediterranean beaches (Narbonne 90 mins) and ski slopes (Ax les Thermes 40 mins).

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Lorna Cannell

We moved to the Ariege in 2004 and just love it here

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? We chose Le Cazal for its tranquil position and superb views.
Unique benefits of property Le Cazal is set in its own land close to a village and just 5 miles from Mirepoix. It is peaceful here and yet close enough to all amenities and everything the Ariege can offer. The views are what really sold it to us.
