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.
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 (which can be arranged as a double) has en-suite shower, WC and hand basin
Welcome pack with home-made jams and local wine is included.
Your English hosts, Robert and Harriet, live in the converted grange next-door to the farmhouse and they are happy to share their knowledge of the surrounding area and to recommend scenic tours and local restaurants and vineyards.
Robert & Harriet Stow purchased this farmhouse in 2001
This is a truly wonderful place to relax during your visit to the Southwest region of France.....whether you wish to explore the Cathare ruins, take day trips to visit the local vineyards, visit the numerous historical places of interest, or simply unwind by the pool.
We offer farmhouse dinners on a table d'hôtes basis, either in our main salon or in the garden. We entertain friends and clients alike for dinner, lovingly prepared from local produce in season.
Free Wi-Fi Connection is available.
Six of us spent time at La Ferme Boyer. Four of us stayed a week in the gite and 2 more friends spent a few days at the B&B that Harriet and Robert run. We all loved the beautifully remodeled farm and its setting. Not only did we visit the region rich in markets, medieval castles, wall-painted caves, and hikes in the Pyrenees but we also took time to relax and to bask in the sunny countryside - leisurely breakfasts in the garden, reading by the pool, bird watching and listening. The garden in full bloom was a haven for songbirds. So many different birds that we recorded their melody. And now I can listen to them when I have the blues or if I simply need to be transported back to summer in Ariège.
Finally, La Ferme Boyer would not be as welcoming and as comfortable without our hosts' thoughtfulness toward every aspect of our stay. Harriet spoiled us with delicious meals at the "the table d'hôtes" and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner conversations with her and Robert.
Thank you Harriet and Robert! We'll be back.
Four of us (two couples in their 60's) spent four nights at La Ferme Boyer last week and had an excellent stay. Our two-bedroom gite was large, clean and well-furnished. But the best elements of the stay were our hosts, Harriet and Robert. We engaged Harriet to prepare a sumptuous dinner our first night and it exceeded expectations, so much so that we begged her (successfully) to prepare a second dinner on our final night. Both meals were as good or better than any we enjoyed during our three weeks in France. The meals were made even more pleasant by entertaining conversation with both of them. On the evening of our arrival, I told Robert I knew little of the area but knew I wanted to see 3-4 specific things (Carcassone, Montsegur and Niaux Cave, etc.) and asked for suggestions to fill up the three full days we would be spending there. The next morning, he presented me with a suggested three-day itinerary, complete with maps, brochures and driving times, that covered everything I intended to see, plus several other fascinating sites (among others, be sure to make a quick visit to Lagarde). These are great hosts.
This is the perfect place to stay if you are in the southwest region of France. The farm home is lovely and the owners are just a delight. We were so impressed with our hosts
The 2 bedroom gite was just perfect, beds were very comfortable and the linens were heavenly. The bedrooms were bright and extra large with a private bath for each.
The home was just a delight for our holiday. Thank you again for being accommodating about our special diets, and for going out of your way to find the food and drink that we enjoy and appreciate your thoughtfulness. Our highlight of the stay was having a fun evening with the host for dinner and time spent together.
We would love to return and highly recommend this home.
My husband and I and my brother and his wife had a lovely 4 day stay in the 2 bedroom apartment on the farm! Robert and Harriet were delightful hosts, helping us with sight seeing decisions, restaurant recommendations and just making us feel like we'd known them forever. The highlight was dinner in their home on our last evening. The food was excellent. So was the wine. The house was originally built in the 1700's and Robert has restored it superbly. The brand new dishwahser and state of the art oven is juxtaposed with the 200+ year old wooden beams running across the ceiling. We loved it. We highly recommend a stay with them! Thanks again, Harriet and Robert!
Sorry for my comments in english...
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans un gîte très soigné, très confortable, bien équipé et décoré avec beaucoup de goût.
Nous avons tout particulièrement apprécié le sens de l'hospitalité de Harriet et Robert, toujours enclin à donner un conseil, aux petits soins - avec discrétion - pour que le séjour se passe bien, une merveilleuse marmelade préparé par Harriet et beaucoup d'humour pour Robert.
Merci pour cette belle semaine séjour Harriet et Robert.

We had a multi-week stay in the Gite in October. The weather was great,we were still swimming in the pool! The accommodations were terrific, close to Mirepoix with a great market. Harriet and Robert are great hosts with a wealth of information about the area, food, wine and activities. We enjoyed the 'evenings' that they host and highly recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to do so.
