    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Sleeps 1-2. (Or two and a baby/older child.) This beautiful 18th century folly benefits from classical proportions and tasteful restoration, to make the perfect unusual peaceful retreat or romantic escape. It enjoys a very unusual position in a centuries old cultivated private park with its own stretch of river. Sensitively decorated to a high contemporary standard, the folly is 15 mins from Pamiers, 45 mins from Toulouse on the Foix motorway, within reach of the Pyrenees & many sporting/cultural activities.

    It would suit anyone in search of peace and quiet in a beautiful and serene location. The nearby medieval town of Mirepoix has markets and sights, the surrounding countryside is beautiful. Sports visitors can enjoy include canoe-ing, riding, cycling and golf. The French countrysi...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The folie is an 18th century conversion (it wasn't a chapel, but that was the closest category we could find.)
    The conversion has been designed so the whole building is open plan. The double bed is on a duplex platform accessed via a spiral stair in the middle of the room. There is a kitchenette area behind a screen, a sitting area and a dining table and chairs. There is another double sofa bed in a downstairs alcove, but as the spaces are open, if more than 2 people were planning on going they'd need to be comfortable sharing collective space. We think it would most suit one or two people getting away for some sun, relaxation, fresh air, outdoor activities of peace and quiet.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent a gorgeous week here during August this year and had a wonderful wonderful break. The Folie is more beautiful than photos show and the warm welcome from Rene, her husband and the various members of family we met during our stay made us feel very much at home. The Folie itself is gorgeously renovated and decorated and had... more

La Folie des Amoureux is one of the most magical places we have ever been lucky enough to stay. Set in the beautiful park of the chateau de Bonnac, you get such a sense of peace and relaxation as soon as you arrive there and the owner makes you feel really at home. The building itself has been decorated immensely...

I felt very Lucky to have found such a unique and pretty place and the folie itself is beautifully decorated. It is also very romantic and... more
