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

“Totally relaxing”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We've stayed at Le Puget before and it never fails to deliver. From the moment you drive up to the ivy-clad courtyard and park in the stupendous barn, you're in paradise. There's oodles of space to relax, from the terrace to the swimming pool, with views to the nearby village or over fields of sunflowers. The beds are great and the whole place has a truly relaxed atmosphere - loved the large sofas by the fireside for a lazy afternoon. The hosts John & Janie are everything you could wish for - helpful and friendly and never intrusive. John's a superb cook so I definitely recommend organising at least one evening when he'll tantalise your taste buds, with local produce - we had stuffed guinea fowl one evening and it was out of this world, especially when matched with local wines. This is a real retreat, a salve to modern life, which means sleeping to the sounds of owls rather than traffic, but Carcassonne and Mirepoix are nearby, and we found ourselves stopping at various other villages - there's so much to see. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

“Idyllic French holiday”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The setting of this charming rural accommodation makes you believe you are in the French movie of your dreams. Manon des Sources could be offering the sweetest figs direct from a tree. Isabelle Huppert could be disagreeing with you about Existentialism over le petit dejeneur on the veranda table that overlooks the valley and nearby medieval village. Better still, you could image yourself with Alain Delon dans la piscine (or with Romy Schneider/Jane Birkin if you are so inclined). We were a gay couple part of a mixed group on a special celebration. We were all seduced by the place, surroundings, food and the hosts Janie and John. With their knowledge of the local culture and sensitivity towards the needs of the guests, they made our expectations of an idyllic French holiday come true.

“Best Rural Holiday of My Life”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our fourth trip to Domaine de Puget, and the nicest rural holiday we've even taken (and we've taken a lot in our time). Everything was delightful: the very comfortable accommodation (the plentiful library made me feel as though I was still at home!), the delicious dinner left by John on our first night, the beautiful surroundings, with wonderful walks to take each afternoon, the helpful leaflets left on local beauty spots and place of interest, John and Janie's good advice on where to go and what to see, the tips on where to shop in the beautiful local town, Mirepoix, and the pool, in which I swam most afternoons. After a very busy late summer, we spent a week feeling thoroughly relaxed, and very healthy for all the fresh air and good gentle exercise. And John and Janie also very kindly booked us in to a superb local restaurant (L'Abbaye du Camon) so we could have a delayed celebration of my birthday one evening. Altogether a wonderful stay, and I'd warmly recommend Le Puget as one of the most lovely holiday places in France.

“Superb property, ideal location”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a superb property consisting of and old farmhouse and a large barn conversion. Both properties are extremely well-equipped with, in the case of the barn, everything from a professionally equipped kitchen to a piano, we couldn't have wished for more; there is also a large swimming pool and a barn where you can park your car undercover.

The owners were very welcoming and accommodating and gave us advice on what to see & do, of which there is plenty as the property is ideally situated between Carcassonne and Mirepoix, there are also plenty of walks available directly from the property. The owners also prepared a celebratory meal including wine for 12 of us and pulled out all the stops to ensure we all enjoyed it, which did immensely.

“This is what you had in mind - staying on the French countryside - Sunflowers, wine, pool, stunning views.”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We booked the smaller house (Farmhouse) for a family of 5 (4 adults and one 2 year old). We needed a place close to Mirepoix and Carcassonne. We pictured south of France, sunflowers, hills and sun. We got more. The house is spacious, well decorated and fully equipped. The house stays nice and cool in the summer and there are different terraces you can use based on sitting in the sun or shade. There is a lot of open space to barbecue or have a walk on the massive property. The pool is very nice. Views are stunning.

You do need to drive for your shopping but hey - you've booked the countryside.

As for the host, John and Janet were very, very friendly and have made our stay an absolute pleasure. Advise on where to eat and what to drink was very helpful.

I would definitely recommend to book this. We will come back, probably for a longer stay.
