Very enjoyable stay in lovely location with perfect weather. Great facilities with pool, garden and bbq. Accommodation very good, beds very comfortable. However a little tricky to negotiate some of the stairs and some cooking facilities a bit dated.

About the neighbourhood
Les Gascous is on the border of Aude and Ariege, offering a tranquil hill top retreat with stunning views of the Sabarat Mountains and Montse'ger on a clear day.
Mirepoix is in the Ariege department of the Midi-Pyrenees near the border with the Languedoc-Roussillon and between Carcassonne and Foix. It is a beautiful medieval bastide town and Mirepoix should not be missed if you are in this area.

Mirepoix started life on the other side of the River Hers but following a terrible flood in 1209 which wiped out many of the villages in the area the town was rebuilt on the opposite bank. Mirepoix suffered during the Hundred Years War but then became an important textile centre in the 15th century.
