Gaja-la-selve cottage description

The domaine is a meticulously restored farmhouse with fantastic pool near Fanjeaux on the top of the hill with the most amazing views in all directions in a very quiet setting yet close to all amenities. The large pool offers great swimming and superb views into the valley. The historic atmosphere and idyllic setting of the farmhouse will seduce you. You taste the tranquility of the rural French life. The gites are self catering cottages which offer the comfort and privacy you are searching for to get away from your stressed life and enjoy a relaxing holiday in an area steeped in history and culture. This charming and authentic property has comfortable quality gites that are restored in keeping with the traditional style of the farmhouse. Our gites have names that are linked to the direct environment e.g. La Vigne is fully covered by a vigne vierge, Bellevue has fantastic views to the valley and the Pyrenees and Le Hibou has always barn-owls “next-door” under the attic.

There is a private parking on the property.
The property is suitable for children of 5yrs and older.

                      The domaine is situated near Fanjeaux (where the Romans had a temple to Jupiter), the medieval fortified Carcassonne, the Cathar castles of Queribus, Peyrepertusis and Montsegur. The lovely medieval village Mirepoix is close by and has a market every week. These markets can also be found in Revel, Castelnaudary and Limoux. The canal du Midi is a world heritage site where boats can be rented or walks can be made along the shaded banks of the canal (ideal for a picnic). Around the farmhouse there are walkings set out that are also suitable for mountain bikes. For those who like mountain-hiking, the Pyrenees are at less then one hour drive. Famous wine regions like the Minervois, the Corbieres, the Cabardes, Limoux (sparkling white wine) and Fitou are nearby. The Mediterranean beaches are at only one hour drive. Furthermore there is the lac Ganguise (sailing and windsurfing), Toulouse (city of the squares), Albi (birthplace of Toulouse Lautrec), Montolieu (village of the books) and Andorre. We regularly arrange a wine-tasting in a chateau nearby.
