Property description

Full of character and wooden beams, the Maison d'Artistes is the "Jewel in the Crown" of the Domaine de Montagnac. Spacious and luxurious, the Grande Salle and Grande Cuisine are wonderful spaces that transform the house. The Grande Salle is luxuriously furnished, with chandeliers, large sofas and armchairs, Jotul wood burning stove, widescreen TV...and a stunning 4 metre oak dining table (perfect for up to 20 people). The Grande Cuisine is fully equipped with a 5-burner cooker, gas and electric ovens, microwave, dishwasher, and large fridge/freezer (with icemaker). The 4 bedrooms and 2 sofabeds are in the the first and second floor apartments (which are available together or separately). Renovated to a very high standard, each apartment has two bedrooms, one bathroom (1st floor: bath/shower; 2nd floor: shower), a fully-fitted kitchen, living room, sofa bed & satellite TV. The Maison d'Artistes is a magnificently spacious holiday home of 415 sq m (or 4500 sq ft) - much more space than you will find in most gites. A large terrace looks out over fields and woods - ideal for hot summer evenings. You’ll have unrestricted access to the shared swimming pool and grounds...and to our large snooker table.

The Maison Maitre has 8 bedrooms and 2 sofabeds, and has a large shaded south-facing terrace and a small north-facing terrace.

The Maison du Parc has 4 bedrooms and 1 sofabed and a private/enclosed north-facing terrace.

The Maison des Pyrenees Appartment 1 has 3 bedrooms and 1 sofabed. Its terrace looks south directly towards the Pyrenees.

The Maison des Pyrenees Appartment 2 has 1 bedroom and 1 sofabed. Its terrace also looks south directly towards the Pyrenees.

The 4 entirely self-contained houses at the Domaine de Montagnac can be rented together offering a total of 20 bedrooms and 9 sofabeds – enough for most extended families or holiday groups. If you would like to reserve the entire estate just let us know!

If your aim is to find absolute peace/calm (even isolation), you may be well advised not to stay at the Domaine de Montagnac during July or August. Understandably, in the peak holiday season we are likely to have people staying in one of the other houses/apartments. For most people, meeting new people/friends in a relaxing informal setting (and children meeting and playing with other children) adds to the fun and enjoyment of a family holiday in such a wonderful place!

BUSINESS SEMINARS:
The Domaine de Montagnac is an ideal location for relaxed and focused residential business seminars. All of the spaces described can be made available, plus a separate dedicated seminar room. Full catering can be arranged from a local caterer. Please email us for more details.

Car: Necessary

The Domaine de Montagnac is a remarkable place. Situated in a quiet and beautiful (but not remote) part of the Ariege in southwest France, with rolling hills all around, it is an ideal base for a relaxing rural holiday. As well as the local village (St Felix de Tournegat) being classified as a National Monument, there are amazing panoramic views of the Pyrenees mountain range – close enough for skiing or high altitude walks. With tourism and cultural attractions all over the region, and civilization (and, so, shops!) just a 15 minute drive away, there are very few holiday locations that can compare. Delights such as Mirepoix and Limoux are on the doorstep, as are the Cathar castles including Foix and Montsegur. For those wanting the sea, the Mediterranean and the famous town of Collioure are just 2 hours away.

Ski: There are several ski resorts within easy driving distance. While not as grand (or expensive!) as the Alps, all local ski resorts in the Pyrenees have a good variety of skiing in lovely surroundings.

The nearest ski resort, les Monts D'Olmes, is a 45 minute drive away. The larger resort of Ax-les-Thermes (also has thermal baths & a casino, is 90 minutes drive away.

Downhill « Ski de Piste » resorts:

Les Mont d’Olmes (1500- 2115 m / 18,5 kms of pistes)

Ax les 3 Domaines (1400 - 2400 m / 75 kms of pistes)

Guzet (1100 -2100 m / 40 kms of pistes)

Ascou Pailhères (1500 - 2000 m / 20 kms of pistes)

Mijanes Donezan (1530 - 2000 m / 9 kms of pistes)

Goulier Neige (1500 - 2000 m / 5 kms of pistes)

Cross-country « Ski de Fond » resorts:

Plateau de Beille (1800 -2000 m / 75 kms of pistes)

Domaine du Chioula (1240 - 1650 m / 60 kms of pistes)

Etang de Lers (1300 - 1615 m / 30 kms of pistes)

La Tour Lafont (1250 - 1500m / 15 kms of pistes)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hallo! I'm Martin Holliss, one of the owners of the Domaine de Montagnac. Having fallen in love with the place, my wife, Liz, and I bought the Domaine in 2005 with some of our oldest and dearest friends. Our children have come to love it as well, to the point that our son was married at the domaine during 2016.

Why the Owner Chose Saint-Félix-de-Tournegat, France:
It's just so lovely here! Rural, tranquil and with amazing views. If you want to holiday in a city then the Domaine de Montagnac is not for you. However, if you love the country, enjoy large characterful houses with wooden beams, and want to relax into a combination of tourism, walking and French rural life, then Montagnac is likely to appeal.
