Hosts were very welcoming and provided delicious food - even though both myself and my husband are picky eaters! The standard of the accomodation is really high, and our room was beautifully decorated with lovely furniture. We visited the mountains for some fun in the snow which was just a short drive away, and we also walked around the lovely town along the river.

There were 4 families with 6 adults and 7 kids aged 6-11 and we had the whole house. Some had travelled by ferry and car, others via flight to Toulouse and hire car. Our hosts, Sarah and Stuart and their young son greeted us all like old friends. We had pre-arranged an evening meal and this was ready for us in the evening and totally delicious for everyone. One family was new to the place and fell in love with it instantly.

The house is even more attractive than before, with beautiful pieces of vintage French furniture adorning the rooms. There is table football in the games room now and plenty of indoor games but mostly the kids were outside in the pool which now has a wooden deck and had a daily temperature of around 29 degrees. Some had fun chasing lizards and catching crayfish in the river.

We visited markets in Le Mas D'azil and St Giron buying clothes, jewellery, cheese, honey, gifts and all manner of lovely things. On other days we visited swimming lakes which was a lovely way to spend time and keep the kids cool, active and happy.

We also enjoyed the legendary duck kebabs on our last night at a nearby restaurant which were divine!

Next time, some cave exploration is a must as this region is famous for the most incredible caves and cave paintings, and the hosts can recommend some close places to visit, and there are some gorgeous walks. This time, it was all about relaxation and hanging out. We started planning a winter trip before we all departed which is testament to the location and the welcome received. We all came back totally relaxed, and evangelical about La Maison Famille. Brilliant!

I have just returned form my 3rd stay at La Maison Famille. We booked the whole house for three families with 5 kids aged 4-9. Once again it was a wonderful and memorable stay.

The house looks even better than before with delightful touches of decor all around the house including paintings of rustic French scenes and pieces of traditional furniture. We stayed in room 1; the yellow room, at the top of the house which was quiet and spacious with large en suite bathroom with full length bath.

On this occasion Sarah cooked our evening meals so we could enjoy long day trips to the local markets, mountains and caves. The underground boat trip through the caves at La Bouiche is a must. We all loved it and the children were wide eyed with wonder.

At La Maison Famille, there is ample space for kids to play in the garden, play equipment, hammocks and both a games room with table football and a lounge with TV and DVD. Adults tended to hang out around the large kitchen table, eating cheese, drinking wine and playing cards and backgammon etc.

La Maison Famille is a great base for French culture loving people. The Ariege region is beautiful at all times of year, but Autumn was stunning. My recommendation is take a bunch of good mates (with kids or not) who like to get out and explore. Looking forward to returning again in the near future.

Had a fantastic stay here when motorbike touring. My thanks to our hosts (Stu Sarah and Cal) who welcomed us with beers, wine and very comfortable elegant rooms. Nothing was too much trouble. The food Sarah produced was excellent and value for money - restaurant quality and produce sourced locally. The property has a lovely garden and a place to sit, chill out and enjoy a drink, after a good days ride.

It was quite simply one of the best family holidays we have ever had. Lovely place in a stunning location, Stuart and Sarah (and not forgetting Callum aka The Red Ninja) were immaculate hosts. We will be back.

We had the most amazing and wonderful week at La Maison Famille. Stuart, Sarah and little Callum were warm and delightful hosts to 5 families with 8 kids under 8! They speak fluent French and have in depth local knowledge of markets, near by towns, great day trips, lakes and things for all manner of visitor to enjoy. The late August weather was gorgeous, and if we got too hot we could cool off in the pool or under many options of shade outside; trees, hammocks, garden furniture and plenty for everyone. The bedrooms were ultra comfy, spacious and well furnished and the large kitchen a hub for many lovely meals, some cooked by us and some by Sarah. I would highly recommend this place to anyone at any time of year be it B & B or hiring the whole place with good friends. We chilled and laughed and ate and drank the very best of the local cuisine both 'at home' and out and about. The Ariege region is absolutely stunning and the house beautifully situated in every sense. I can't recommend it highly enough and we are already planning next year's visit.
