What elevates lodging from good to excellent rating? In the case of this auberge, it is the owners' service. David and Sylvia's attention to their clientele is superb. Here are some examples. When we arrived for a 2 night stay, another lodger was at the front desk while David assisted him with printing his boarding passes. We were given a... More

We stayed a night here on our way back to Toulouse Airport. We chose the Auberge (a little way outside Mirepoix) rather than a hotel in the town centre because it promised to be more peaceful. We arrived earlier than requested online, but David, the owner, could not have been more welcoming or helpful. After helping take our luggage to... More

Came to France for a wedding and stayed here for three nights and used it as base camp. The place is delightful and the owner (David) couldn't be more helpful. If you are looking for a luxury hotel then forget it, this isn't for you. If you are looking for a sensibly priced friendly and homely little hotel then look... More

We found our experience at the Auberge to be everything we needed and more. Room was clean; very comfortable bed; hot showers; fabulous food with a great wine list coupled with excellent service. Could not fault this hotel and we will be most certainly coming back.

we had, this week, one of those very sweet stays in this unpretentious hotel with a superb restaurant, peaceful setting, and proprietors who couldn't have been more generous....we strongly recommend it. Take a deep breath, look out at the Pyrenees, and David will show you, in the far distance, where to have a peek at the Cathar stronghold, the castle... More

You know you have arrived in a good place when there are 30 housemartin nests in the eaves of the building! The proprietor, an Englishman, made us feel just as welcome as the housemartins! We stayed for one night before driving the short distance to Carcassonne to get a flight home. It was a wonderful location, near Mirepoix, for the... More

This is a great place to stay with a stunning view of the Pyrenees. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. This corner of France around the Pyrenees and centring on Mirepoix is an absolute gem and quiet even in peak season. Highly recommended

I stayed at this hotel for several days in mid July, the hotel is easy to find but at least 10km from the nearest town. The room I had was quite small and very basic, note there are no complimentary tea/coffee facilities in the room which as a seasoned traveller found to be very rare. The room had a very... More

Dear guest Thank you very much for your recent 2 day visit and for your feedback.

this is a wonderful place to stay outside of Mirepoix. Rooms are comfortable, parking convenient, food excellent and hosts friendly and hospitable. Look carefully for the sign as it's on a side road off the highway. Well worth the visit in this wonderful countryside. Thanks David and Sylvia. Alice Moerk
