“Wonderfully relaxing”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in June 2013

What a lovely place, The cottage was clean and well presented. The welcome was warm and friendly and everything you needed was on hand. The area is very beautiful and there is lots to do or if you don't fancy doing anything the garden and cottage are the perfect retreat.

“Idyllic haven hidden away”
Reviewed 3 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed at the Mill out of season for a few nights in January as we were touring France and wanted to stay in the Pyrenees. The Mill Gite is on the top floor of the main house with its own entrance and decking, kitchen and bathroom. The owners were very friendly and certainly had a fair amount of information for visitors to the area.

The local main town, Foix, is about 15mins drive away and has a number of boutique shops as well as the main supermarkets. Foix is well placed to drive up the mountain passes to Andorra (snow chains needed in winter) or across to the beaches on the Med.

We found the Gite to be quite cold during the winter months as the wood burner in the kitchen didn't reach to the bedroom. There is a small electric heater that is provided but we found it was only good enough to take the chill out of the room. The wood burner takes a bit of expertise to maintain as the wood was a bit damp but once going was toasty and there is a good hot shower. (May also be worth bringing a torch as the path up to the gite from the drive way is pitch black and the steps were slippy in the wet)

If you feel the cold then the Mill is best visited in the warmer months of the year. The area is fantastic with many hiking and biking routes all within a short drive.

I am really sorry to hear that you were cold here - that is no-one's idea of a good holiday. If you had let us know we could have provided extra heaters, and even different wood.
In response to your comments we will be adding a tourch in the gite immediatley, and offering a fire lighting service, so that clients return to a lit fire, and therefore warm gite at the end of a day out.

Reviewed 28 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Pictures really do not do this beautiful place justice at all, be prepared to be received by a wonderfully welcoming family, into their gorgeous property, surrounded by a stunning landscape, which has the right mix of privacy and comfortable very "french" accomodation, with their excellent local knowledge your assured to have the break we all deserve!

“Excellent retreat in idyllic surroundngs”

Beautiful well equipped gite ideal for two people in the beautiful surroundings of the Ariege. Friendly and helpful hosts who take a pride in their accommodation. Visit the town of Foix with it's impressive castle looking down over the region. There are many events on during the year and lots of places to visit within a 20 mile radius. If you don't want to wander too far, this gite is a delightful place to just sit and soak up the surroundings. We had a wondeful week here and would highly recommend it.

“Perfect base for a holiday in the area”
Reviewed 12 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed here recently and spent a fantastic week exploring the local area. La Scierie is really well situated for visiting all sorts of local attractions and every direction you drive you are surrounded by beautiful scenery. The Mill gite itself was everything we expected and wanted. It was well equipped, clean and cosy. The bed was really comfortable and the shower good and hot, simple but important factors! There is a small private balcony with a BBQ outside the gite where you can enjoy a glass or two of the local wine (you can even buy some next door!) Jenny and Tony also allow their guests access to their large and stunning garden which is hugged on one side by the river. I would highly recommend this gite and the area in general.
