Laborie, Ariege, Midi-Pyrenees

Escape to the tranquillity of this lovingly restored home in the foothills of the French Pyrenees. Situated in a peaceful French hamlet, 600 m above sea level, in the heart of the 'Parc naturel régional des Pyrénées Ariégeoises' Leela makes for a perfect base from which to explore the wild and beautiful Ariege. Romantic, magical and calm, come, let go, unwind and relax.

Over a decade Leela has been sensitively restored using ecological building techniques and materials. The wood fired central heating and reed bed waste water system make for an ecologically friendly holiday choice.

Leela resonates a beautiful energy, full of light and warmth; cosy in winter and cool in summer. The old wood and natural stone are offset by the beautiful curves of the simple plastered stone walls.

We booked a stay at Leela for 10 days in September. We really enjoyed our time there despite a mix up which meant that it was double booked. However Sarah went out of her way to ensure that the mistake was rectified a week before we were due to arrive and instead we stayed for half the time at her... more

We stayed for 10 weeks and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Leela is a gorgeous gite, very well equipped and situated within a small picturesque hamlet in the midi-pyrenees. Our hostess Sarah could not have been more welcoming and took such good care of our family of four. We would highly recommend a stay here. more

As soon as we walked into 'Leela' we felt we could instantly relax. The host, Sarah, has beautifully renovated and created a wonderful gite. The warm and welcoming ambience of the place is of a very high standard. Which made our short stay (of 1 week) totally perfect. We highly recommend this place (for location, views from the house, the... more
