The location is beautiful with superb views of the Pyrenees. The room was lovely with a great view too. Dave and Sylvia make fantastic hosts and the food is first class. Overall fantastic value for money.

After a lovely first stay at the Auberge, my boyfriend and I decided to book again as we were driving to Spain in September. It just so happens that this location is _exactly_ half way from Paris to Valencia, and only a short detour from the highway :) The auberge didn't disappoint the second time around, quite on the contrary...

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.

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.

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
