This beautiful one bedroom apartment in the converted stables of a listed Chateau, is perfect for a holiday or short break at any time of year. The apartment is set within the private and secluded park of the chateau grounds with spectacular mountain scenery. Located in the heart of the Pyrenees, close to the historic town of Foix. This is a truly year round location, with trekking, cycling, kayaking, canyoning, rafting, potholing, paragliding, sailing, fishing, horse riding, rock climbing and many more activities for the summer months, and downhill and cross country ski resorts for the winter. In July the Mountain stage of the Tour de France often passes by the chateau on the final ascent, and the village is alive with activity in the days leading up to this event. Add to all this the fantastic wildlife, thermal spas, Cathar castles and breathtaking scenery, there’s something for everyone in this unique property.

Comfortable flat with easy walk to the village and wonderful mountain scenery
Flat has all amenities with comfortable double bed and sofa. We had a wonderful time visiting Cathar castles, Romanesque churches, Palaeolithic cave paintings and beautiful old towns like Foix Mirepoix and St Lizier. Spar supermarket in Le Cabannes very good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had some lovely walks in local valleys and hills and enjoyed browsing the Sunday morning market in Les Cabannes
Unique, fascinating views, in a charming setting
Overall a very comfortable and charming stay. Upon arrival the entry code to the apt worked well. Though cold upon entry the manually adjusted heaters worked extremely well and heated the apt nicely. The included washer was a very nice feature and we appreciated the included drying rack. Also, the hot water heater worked very well.
Best of all, the constantly changing colors of the sky and Pyrenees mountains were truly amazing! This alone is worth a visit!
This small apt complex is situated on the adjacent grounds to the Chateau du Guyanes in the Les Cabannes village.
Had a lovely stay in this apartment in for a climbing/cycling break in December. It's in a beautiful peaceful setting in the grounds of the chateau and only a 3 minute walk from the village with its great boulangerie and a few other little shops. Perfect for a couple - very well-equipped kitchen and comfortable living area. Quality bedlinen (& very comfy bed!). Spacious well-lit and well-appointed shower room. Good wifi. The apartment was very clean. Perhaps could do with a lamp in the corner of the living area as it was quite hard to read by the ceiling lights which are at the table end of room. (We remedied this by borrowing the lamp from the bedroom.) Other than that (only a very minor niggle), everything was great. Would definitely stay again if we return to the area.
Lovely flat in a grand building and friendly village
The flat was clean and well equipped.
The owner and local staff were quick to answer any question we had.
A little more information on how to use the washing machine and heaters would be helpful. Also how to access the tennis court and swimming pool area (I know it was closed) and back garden.
The village was lovely and the flat was in a convenient area to visit local attractions.
Loved our stay and would definitely recommend this property
Fantastic property in idyllic setting
Stayed here for a week with my young family. The apartment is located around 300 metres from the local town of Les Cabannes where there are a few shops and restaurants within walking distance. The apartment itself is great, nicely equipped to eat in if you want to and is extremely clean and tidy. Tennis court is great with amazing scenery as is the swimming pool. The Chateau Gudanes in which the apartment is located close to is amazing and is in the process of being renovated, an amazing bit of history.
Lots to do in the locality like challenging yourself to do the Tour de France Plateau Beille challenge or go to Ax Les Thermes or even Andorra. Really pleasant and beautiful location
We had a really nice relaxing week here. Good apartment in an amazing setting.
Really enjoyed sitting out in the grounds and dipping into the pool to cool off - completely peaceful.
Village was a few minutes walk down the hill - great patisserie! Lovely stay.
The apartment is just over 1 hour's drive from both Toulouse and Carcassonne airports (regular flights from UK with RyanAir, EasyJet and BA). The local train station is less than 5 mins walk from the Apartment, serving a local route and also with connections to Paris and Barcelona. Car hire is recommended, and there is plenty of parking at the apartment.
The apartment is on the edge of Les Cabannes village. It is less than 5 mins walk from the apartment to the main square with restaurants, post office, tourist information and local shops. There is a Spar in the village, and the nearest supermarkets are in Tarascon or Ax les Thermes, both a 10 minute drive.
The local area has a lot to offer at all times of year. There is plenty of opportunity for scenic walks and hikes, cycling, kayaking, white water rafting, horse riding, climbing, golf and crazy golf. The grounds of the Chateau provide access to a shared swimming pool, tennis court and petanque pit. The apartment is 10 mins drive from the historic thermal spa town of Ax les Thermes. There are also a number of prehistoric caves and Cathar castles to explore.
