A magical home with huge picture windows overlooking a wild and beautiful valley. With a secluded roof terrace and a large covered balcony there is ample outdoor space to relax in the shade or sun, away from prying eyes. Renovated with taste and simplicity. Well equipped and comfortable. A perfect getaway if you are in search of peace and nature, while remaining accessible to local markets and tourist attractions. Attentive owner always ready to help.
Escape to the tranquility of this lovingly restored home in the foothills of the French Pyrenees. Situated in a peaceful French hamlet, 600 m above sea level, my home makes for a perfect base from which to explore the wild and beautiful Ariege.
Over a decade Leela has been sensitively restored using ecological building techniques and materials. Roof top yoga is available and retreats can be assisted if required.
Leela resonates a beautiful energy, full of light and warmth; cozy in winter and cool in summer. The old wood and natural stone are offset by the beautiful curves of the simple plastered stone walls.
The ground floor is made up of a large open plan kitchen dining area, with wood-burning stove for the colder months. The kitchen is well equipped with small electric oven, 5 gas rings, washing machine, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, breadmaking machine, rice maker, juicer, iron, ironing board, blender and 12 complete place settings. Please enquire if anything else is needed.
The living room is light and peaceful with large windows and balcony overlooking the forested valley. There is an antique desk positioned with views over the valley and plenty of light. A perfect spot for writing. On the north side of the first floor is a second bedroom, with a single bed .
The master bedroom is high up on the second floor. The entire south wall of the bedroom is glass and opens onto a large private covered balcony, with breathtaking views over the enchanting, ever changing valley below. Passing through a stone opening, there is a bathroom, bright sitting area and the fabulous roof top terrace. This is a wonderful, totally private space, away from prying eyes.
Guests sleeping in the second bedroom pass by the corner of the master room to reach the bathroom, so this is not suitable if guests in the master bedroom need total privacy from their travel companions.
Ground floor, first floor, second floor with balcony and roof terrace.

If you have any questions or need of help during your stay you are most welcome to get in touch with us and we will do our best to make sure you have an unforgetable stay in our home.
We have 4 bikes available for rent at 10 euros a day. We are 3 km from the cycle path which runs between Foix and St Girons. This was the old railway line and offers gentle excercise, but of course there are many steep hills and mountains for a more challenging ride.
I prefer that shoes are not worn upstairs. Please smoke outside, on the covered private balcony roof terrace. Please take care to dry wooden worktops in the kitchen. Due to the septic tank being easily blocked, only toilet paper to be flushed down the toilet, all other bathroom waste in the bin next to the toilet. Please leave the house clean and tidy. Many thanks.

I love being in nature - spending time in the mountains, by rivers and streams and in the forests. I live with my adorable little boy, in a rural hamlet lost in the foothills of the Pyrenees, in a house which I spend many years renovating using ecological building techniques. I have a daily early morning mediation practice which clears my mind and inspires my creativity and love. When I have the chance to escape for a few days in the warmer months, I head for the sea where I bath to my heart's content. I live simply but enjoy the abundance of life and all the beauty which surrounds us.
