  • Description


    We are a young family with 3 and 5 year old daughters working on our beautiful old Hamlet to fulfil our dream of running a self sufficient gite business here in South West France. The gardens are pretty big and there is a lot of work to do on the buildings.

    We are in a remote location, 4.5km to the town of Mirepoix so transport would be needed if you wanted to get into town.
