Property description

La Ferme de Boyer combines the ultimate in French lifestyle with traditional country house comfort. Stay in the original farmhouse, with the possibility of occasional dinners prepared by Harriet, who is a Cordon Bleu-trained cook. Additional accommodation in the spacious B&B next door.

The farmhouse, built in 1790, is typical of the country houses here in the beautiful rolling landscape of the Ariège in the Midi-Pyrénées. You will be awed by the beauty of this special place as you drive up the tree-lined entrance and park under the stately shade trees.

There is a a delightful Swimming Pool (8m x 4m) set in our large garden with plenty of shade, and woodland walks with stunning views of the Pyrénées.
Ferme Boyer is situated 3 Kms west of Mirepoix, a lovely relaxed southern medieval town, which comes to life on market days and has a choice of shops, including an excellent supermarket and several cafés and restaurants in all prices categories.

The arcaded main market square, surrounded by timbered 13th century houses, also has country antiques and pottery shops. And the cathedral boasts one of the largest naves in all of Europe.

The farmhouse has 2 large bedrooms with very comfortable beds and crisp linens, both equipped with hairdryers and minibar. The Red Room has a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with bath, shower, WC and hand basin. The twin-bedded room has en-suite shower, WC and hand basin

Welcome pack with home-made jams and local wine is included.
