Next to the utility room is a large shower room and downstairs toilet with sink and heated towel rail.


There are three large double bedrooms (two with double beds and one with twin beds) all with cotton bed linen. A cot can be provided on request. All three bedrooms have stunning views of the surrounding area. Art work on the walls is inspired by these views.

There is an upstairs bathroom with full sized bath, toilet, sink and heated towel rail.


We have a shaded veranda, with table and chairs and BBQ. The veranda opens onto a secure good-sized garden. As the house is mainly south facing so the garden basks in sunshine all day. The decked area to the side of the house is home to the hot tub for private use of visitors to Meadowtops. There are sun loungers and parasol for you to use.

From the garden, a short path up the hill takes you behind the cottage to the pool garden. The garden is enclosed on three sides by trees, shrubs and lavender and has beautiful views across the mountains. There is a large, heated, in-ground single depth pool; loungers and parasols. The pool is open 8am to 6pm to allow for cleaning and maintenance and is available May to September depending on weather. The pool is shared with the owner’s parents who are also key holders for Meadowtops.

There is ample private parking alongside the gite.

The Farmhouse and Garden apartment - Situated at the top of the hill - not in sight of Meadowtops and also basks in sunshine from early morning till late evening. The garden apartment is next to the Farmhouse and can be accessed from the rear Farmhouse garden terrace, or from its own entrance at the side of the house. It sleeps up to 4 and available for bookings of more than 8 guests staying at the Farmhouse. It cannot be booked separately from the Farmhouse.

The Farmhouse pool, jacuzzi and sauna are private and for the sole use of guests staying at the Farmhouse. The Farmhouse also has a large 60 sq m games/ function room which is perfect for parties or group activities such as yoga/dance/painting or any other type of activities/ classes, or just for family fun playing ping pong and pool.

The Farmhouse is a traditional old stone built property with thick walls that keep it lovely and cool during the hot summer months. The large central hallway and landing area provides central access to all the rooms upstairs and downstairs. The Farmhouse has a spacious, fully equipped dining kitchen which is a very sociable area with large extending dining table, range cooker and glazed doors leading to the rear terrace.

Across the gardens there is a separate building (with another covered sun terrace) which is the games room. This has a high ceiling and is a great space for family fun - playing pool or table tennis or for a large group get together/ party. Across the garden in the other direction is a stone path that leads down to a 12 x 6m private swimming pool set in a sheltered position into the hillside.

Garry and Debbie look after both properties and live approximately 100 meters away, pets live on the property – Debbie and Garry have a gentle dog (Olga) who is used to children and likes to visit if the gate to the Gite is left open. They also have three friendly cats who like to visit on occasion.

Local area

The properties are in an area of outstanding wild beauty where sightings of birds of prey, deer and other animals and birds are common. We love the peace and tranquillity of the area and really enjoy the slower pace of life when we are able to take a holiday from work and come out to visit. Whilst this is a rural area and a car is essential to get around, there are lots of amenities and activities within easy driving distance. Our closest village is St Croix Volvestre, which is about 5-10 minutes drive or you can walk there for 20 minutes along the wooded path (down hill on the way there / uphill on the way back, steep in places) taking in magnificent scenery as you walk. The village is very traditional and pretty. There is a cash point, post office, tourist information office, small grocery shop, restaurant/bar, small weekly produce market and public swimming lake. In Cazeres (approximately 20 minutes drive), there are restaurants, cafes, local shops, Post Office and supermarket with petrol station. Our nearest airport is Toulouse Blagnac, which is approximately one hour drive from both properties.

(Please see Facebook link and our Toubies website (toubies.com)

There is also good access to the many attractions of the area including visits to the prehistoric caves, beautiful walks in the mountains or activities such as canoeing, mountain biking and white water rafting. Access to road and rail network is only 15 minutes drive for days out to the beautiful cities of Toulouse (50 minutes- 1 hour) & Carcassonne & Lourdes (1 hour 45 minutes.) or if you want to go further afield, for example, Andorra or the Mediterranean which are only 2 hours drive.

                                                                  michele b.

                                                                  We had 10 great days at Toubies Farmhouse. The house was lovely and very well kitted out and the views across to the mountains were spectacular. The weather was glorious and we made good use of the pool to stay cool. We went out sight seeing and to markets locally in the mornings (St Giron was a favourite) and chilled by the pool later. We also went further afield to Mirepoix and spent a day hiking in the Pyrenees when the weather was cooler. A very relaxing and peaceful holiday.

                                                                  Beauitful Stay in the Farmhouse

                                                                  Trevor L.Jersey Channel Islands

                                                                  We stayed in the Farmhouse in June 2017 the house is large and very comfortable the views from the garden are truly stunning and we got some lovely sunsets over the mountains. Garry and Debbie make you so welcome and there are some small nearby towns to eat in and if you are feeling fit you can walk down to the closest village for lunch or dinner. We come down on a pair of touring motorbikes and we used the house as a base to explore the Pyrenees and I'm sure we will be back for another week of riding around the beautiful roads in the area.

                                                                  Breathtaking views of Pyrenees and comfortable, well equipped farmhouse.

                                                                  Amanda F.

                                                                  We were a party of eight, two families of four with teenage(ish) kids ranging from 11-17.

                                                                  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found Debbie and Gary to be exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable about local area. They are very discreet, but always available if needed.

                                                                  The farmhouse is roomy and comfortable with great indoor and outdoor dining areas and a cosy lounge for those cooler evenings.

                                                                  The kitchen was really well equipped and had everything you need for cooking for 8, including baking a cake!

                                                                  Pool is lovely and the Big Boy floating beanbags were a real hit, but we could have done with a couple more sun loungers for the teenagers!

                                                                  Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all as it is a really tranquil setting but within easy driving distance of all amenities. Nearest supermarket is in Cazeres, 15 mins away by car and is open every day, though the local shop is only a short distance by car (closed on Mondays).

                                                                  We felt that the double room mattresses could do with upgrading, but that was our only slight niggle for what was a fantastic holiday.

                                                                  One of the highlights was spotting eagles and other birds of prey almost every day. Would love to go back.

                                                                  Amazing setting!!

                                                                  We had a super family holiday in this lovely house. With seven adults staying we had ample space, facilities and equipment. We enjoyed the swimming pool with its stunning views and the sauna was well used on the overcast days. Debbie and Garry were most welcoming and hospitable and we would all love to return for another relaxing, tranquil and peaceful holiday.

                                                                  Relaxing, panoramic views, stunning rural location.

                                                                  Eleri J.

                                                                  Great welcome from our hosts, informative and friendly, the farmhouse was like home from home, English TV was great to watch the EURO's! The pool was lovely during the 30 degree heat! Easy to drive from Toulouse airport to the location, took about 55 minutes... also can take the train from cazeres in and out from Toulouse which is 15 minutes away from the holiday home. Ideal place for family holidays. Thank you for letting us stay... we will be back!

The house itself is well equipped and spacious. Highly recommended as a blissful, idyllic location in utterly peaceful surroundings.

Carcassonne and Lourdes/Tarbes Airport is about 1 hour & 45 mins drive. The area is rural and a car is essential for getting around. Distances: Both properites are 15 mins from the A64 giving good access to the region for exploring & days out. The village shop & bakery is in St Croix (2kms) where you also find a bank, post office, pharmacy, doctors, restaurant/bar & tourist office (plus a swimming/fishing lake, boules&tennis courts. St Girons (19km) & Cazeres (10km) are the nearest towns with supermarkets, shops, traditional markets & banks etc. Cazeres has a train station. Toulouse & Foix are less than an hour away. Andorra & Med 2hrs Further Details: Although the area is renowned for its peace and tranquillity the local villages and towns host many festivals and events throughout the year including fêtes, open air historical re-enactments (Cathar and Roman history) and amazing firework displays. The Tour de France passes close by and is an enjoyable occasion for enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike. The prehistoric caves of Mas d'Azil & Niaux are only 30 minutes to an hour's drive away and are unforgettable. The cottage and Farmhouse are on the border between the Haute Garonne and the Ariege and is one of the most under-developed and unspoilt areas of France. It remains covered in large tracts of woodland and wilderness areas. This leads to the common sighting of wildlife of all types including deer, wild boar and large numbers of birds of prey.
