The courtyard leads to the main entrance
the house from part way up the drive
the main doors lead from the courtyard into the leaving room
the living room is too big to photograph well - this is one of the sitting areas
the main fireplace, which is very atmospheric in spring or autumn
the other end of the living room, with the pool table, old piano, and the library
the library sitting area area in the evening
the kitchen has oak work tops and is large enough for several cooks
it is very well equipped, to semi-professional standards
the range cooker is tucked under a 300 year old oak beam
its very comfortable for large groups
there are 6 en suite bedrooms, all similar to this
another typical bedroom, simple but comfortable
the simple en suite bathrooms are all like this
you might prefer to eat out in the courtyard, which is a real sun trap
or perhaps on the terrace, looking out over our fields
the grass in front of the terrace looks over to the 12th century village just across the valley
the 11 x 5 m poo is solar heated.  It has its own walled and sheltered garden that gets sun all day
the pool is open until sunset, and cleaned for you regularly
you might like to walk in the grounds - thats the 12th C church in the background
this is the estate from our land, with snow capped Pyrenees in the background

“A lovely peaceful place in a sunny region between "terre et mer"”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed at Le Puget in June along with my friends. Le Puget is very large spacious house with lovely views on the Languedoc. Well equipped kitchen, swimming pool, cozy bedrooms, large terrace and a huge area for the morning-evening walks led to the fact that we wanted to stay at home rather than going out.
John and Janie welcoming hosts who are happy to help. In the first evening we were welcomed with a traditional French dinner and excellent local wine.
We all liked very much the general ambiance of the house, and definitely will be back again..

“A special place”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Le Puget for a few days recently and have no hesitation at all in registering appreciation for the place itself, the hosts and the wonderful landscapes and all that go with them. The domaine itself is beautiful and calm with gentle views over farmland punctuated by ancient hilltop villages. The nearby cities of Mirepoix, Carcasonne and Toulouse are beautiful and resonant with a tragic history, great markets and wonderful food. We stayed in the farmhouse which we were delighted to have all to ourselves whilst the wonderful host John recovered from a large hen party the previous week. In fact, I don't think he really wanted any guests that week but he made time and space for us for which we were truly grateful. The house is very comfortable ( great bed) well equipped and welcoming, situated in a peaceful enclosed courtyard and with it's own garden. it would be easy just to chill and never go out if that is the kind of holiday that is wanted, particularly given the easy access to gentle local walks and the swimming pool. In spite of his tiredness, John welcomed us with wonderful wine and food on our first evening and was an invaluable source of support when illness and air traffic control strikes threatened. He must have regretted his decision to allow us to stay but we did not! In spite of these challenges, we managed to have a wonderful break at Le Puget and that just about sums it up. The place is unique and wonderful. We were not! . We will certainly return !

“One of the loveliest and most peaceful places I've ever visited... a real pick me up..!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My wife has stayed at Le Puget a number of times, and always spoke very highly of the property and surroundings, so when the opportunity presented itself of us going away without the kids, we jumped at it. It was absolutely wonderful - just a few days away but a vacation in every sense! Lazy days and nights in heaven. Clearly also an ideal place for larger groups to do as fancy takes them - unwind, celebrate, go on retreat, indulge in passionate conversations late into the night and generally recharge batteries with the help of local food and wine (which the host can advise and also provide). A true gem. We'll definitely be back!

“What is this life if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Plenty of stunning views here to behold. Back again for another stay, and of course, John & Janie haven't dropped a gear. Their attention to detail is faultless and they spend their time ensuring your stay wants for nothing. Really goes without saying.... we'll be back.

“Feels like home”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I absolutely love Le Puget! Each time I visit, I feel as though I am coming home. I’ve stayed in the Auberge a couple of times with other families, and we loved the huge living spaces with table football, acres of books and lots of sofas to curl up in, and the views from here are amazing. Very importantly for me, there’s a well equipped kitchen with all the equipment and gadgets I could ever need. We enjoyed the enormous log fires during the cold March evenings, after daytime walks in the wonderful countryside in glorious sun-shine! As I have back and neck problems, Janie, our host, suggested I sleep in the luxurious Tempur bed with Tempur pillow. Absolutely perfect! I slept better here than I do at home. When I last visited in October this year, I stayed in the Farmhouse, perfect for just one family. The two bedrooms were large and comfortable and oh joy, one had a huge Tempur bed! The apple festival in Mirepoix was a great experience, with enormous apple sculptures in the main square and surrounding streets. Sitting here with a beer watching the world go by was just bliss. The hosts, Janie and John, truly want every guest to get the most out of their stay. Theirs is genuine Hospitality. I hope I shall be able to visit Le Puget with friends and family for years to come.

“The teenagers enjoyed it!”
Reviewed 29 November 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

Le Puget was our first stop on a touring holiday, travelling to Toulouse by train and then hiring a car. Our fourteen year-old daughter and her friend were in Le Puget’s pool within a few hours of arriving at Toulouse station.

We had a great time at Le Puget, including table football, swimming and a wonderful meal cooked by John. There are lots of shady places to sit outside and relax, and longer walks to enjoy the views. Nearby Mirepoix has a lively weekly market with buskers, and lots of small interesting shops to browse.

Janie and John are great hosts: they make the whole family feel welcome and at home. Even the teenagers enjoyed their stay!

“Inspiring place to stay”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

I've been to Le Puget twice now with a group of friends, and intend to keep coming back! It's an inspiring place to stay - the sense of space is fantastic, with the wonderful large dining and lounging spaces (perfect for groups) and the glorious views over rolling countryside. Walking to the nearby village and driving around offers a taste of the real France, but on cooler days, it was hard to drag ourselves away from the roaring log fires and massive sofas. Janie and John are amazing hosts - friendly, warm, knowledgeable and interesting, but never intrusive. There is a sense of generosity about this place which is very special. The bedrooms are simple and it's great to have your own ensuite in such an historic building. Each time I've been, I feel re-energised!
