Comfortable Chambres d’hôtes Accommodation
in the Heart of the Beautiful Ariège Pyrenées Countryside.
A warm welcome awaits visitors to 'La Maire', a newly renovated 200-year-old farmhouse nestling in over 3 acres of
beautiful grounds and offering wonderful views of the glorious Ariège countryside with glimpses of the high peaks
of the Pyrenées, which are just a short drive away.
On the outskirts of the hamlet of St Victor Rouzaud, La Maire is situated adjacent to a small cereal farm, and is surrounded
by fields - off the beaten track yet just 15 minutes drive from the lively town of Pamiers, 25 minutes from Foix and
about an hour from the city of Toulouse. A perfectly positioned base from which to
explore this beautiful, historic and unspoilt corner of France.
After a day's exploration of the surrounding area, why not cool off in La Maire's newly-constructed swimming pool
before enjoying a delicious table d’hôte dinner cooked by your friendly hosts, where fresh local produce
and home-grown fruit and vegetables take centre stage. After dinner, relax on the terrace, which offers fabulous views
of the surrounding countryside, or retire to one of the 3 comfortable guest bedrooms.
Having previously lived in Maidenhead, Berkshire for 26 years, Lesley and Dave Olver moved to La Maire in March 2010
and love welcoming visitors to this wonderful corner of France. Dave is a retired police officer and Lesley is a
professional watercolour artist and picture framer.
For those wanting a creative challenge, Lesley offers both watercolour painting classes and holidays at La Maire.
All levels are catered for – please contact her for more details.
