“Good week in Foix”
Reviewed August 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had a v enjoyable week based at the La Mauson Rever. Everything wirjed well and we really liked the peaceful surroundings. Having wi-for was a real bonus and helped us to research the area and things to do.

Everything was clean and the directions there were great. The location suited us v well for a week.

A suggestion for improvement perhaps - a softer mattress on the bed top left at front of house would have suited us better!

We would definitely go again.

Thank you Sasha and Peter.

“Wonderful Autumn Retreat”
Reviewed November 6, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This was the perfect place for a peaceful Autumn week. The house is attractively decorated, well equipped and beautifully warm in the cold evenings and mornings with effective central heating and a log burning stove. Comfortable beds and sofas which I am not ashamed to say we spent a lot of time in!

Autumn is a lovely time to visit the Pyrenees- the daytime temperatures were up to 22/23 degrees and the colours in the mountains were beautiful. It is obviously not a busy time for tourists and attractions had limited opening hours and tourist information centres were often closed, but restaurants still open and the scenery was breathtaking.

We walked to Foix along the river which was not the quickest way but only took about 45 minutes. There are lots of restuarants in Foix and all offer inexpensive plats du jour. We also walked up above the house for about an hour (stay on the road) and were rewarded with lovely views down into Foix and around. Further afield would recommend St Girons/St Lizier and the amazing drive across the mountains from there to Tarascon via the Col de Porte; the Cathar castle at Montsegur and the walking around Ax-les -Thermes - all within easy driving distance of the house.

All in all, this is a very special place and made for a wonderful break.

“Well equipped, attractive, amazing views”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Three of us stayed for 10 days and would happily go again. The house is in a very quiet location on the edge of a (dull but harmless) suburb of Foix. It backs onto a mountain with walks of any length you choose from the door. It has thick stone walls and stays cool; there is a small garden with stupendous views across and up the valley. We often ate outside.

The house is particularly well equipped with real thought put into what would be useful. One disadvantage is that there is no shop in reasonable walking distance (8 minutes' drive to a convenience store); another was that the ceilings were just the floorboards of the room above so everything was audible - but no problem for a small number of people. The main advantages for us were the peaceful location and the views.

“An ideal base to explore”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A generously equipped and very comfortable property in a quiet suburb of Foix. We found this an ideal base for exploring the area, travelling as far as Andorra which is about 1.5 hours away by car. The chateau at Foix is well worth a visit, as is the Cathar stronghold Montsegur (less than half an hour), if you are fit for a short, steep ascent. Ax-les-Thermes with its hot thermal springs is also nearby and the mediaeval town of Mirepoix is also worth a visit. We visited in summer, but there are many skiing opportunities nearby for winter visitors.

“A very pleasant stay in a nice environment!”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

A small house but big enough for two people. We had a very pleasant stay in La Maison Rêver. When the weather is fine, you can relax in the little garden where you have a beautiful view of the Pyrenees.
And when it is too hot outside, the thick walls of the house guarantee that it is prettig cool inside. The house is fully equipped with everything needed for a nice holiday.
Foix is a nice little town with some very good restaurants and in the environment are much places worth a visit.

“Peaceful escape from the rat race!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We really enjoyed our second stay, warm and cosy with the log burner, beautiful views across the valley to the Pyrenees. Only an hour from Carcasonne beautiful old city. Foix itself has it own castle and very pretty town. Andorra only a short distance so there is plenty to see and do. We will certainly stay again at this fantasic property.
