Scroll down for more photos of the interior of this cottage.
As this house is fully centrally heated and only about 40 minutes drive from
excellent ski resorts - this is possibly one of our best locations for a winter holiday.

Entering this cottage directly from the street, you are in the comfortable dining area with cheerful rugs
 -a table setting for six -a radio /CD player with lots of music discs and a couple of chairs for relaxing          
away from the main living room which is upstairs.         


Looking in from the front door, from the dining area through to the kitchen.
From the dining area you walk through to the kitchen with plenty of benches 
     and cupboards - a gas cook top and oven with range hood exhaust - an electric simmer plate 
     and excellent cooking appliances. Up four stairs in the light well is the laundry 
     with washing machine and dryer - also a toilet.
Up one flight of stairs is the main living room with attractive furniture, rugs, 
     largeTV, DVD player with quite a many films - a short wave radio - and a growing library of books in 
     both French and English. The two windows look out over the street.
    

         
Another view of the living room. 
         If there are several couples or a family, it can be helpful to have another room where people
         can enjoy having their own space - work at the desk - enjoy some music or a film.
      
        

Left - the stairs leading up from the ground floor;
Centre - turning the corner into the living room.
Right - the fully tled bathroom with WC, shower and bath.


The main bedroom up one fight of stairs from the living room
and half a flight from the bathroom and extra toilet.
This large and pleasant room has a with queen sized bed - built in wardrobe
and two windows overlooking the street



On the same level as the bathroom there is a smaller bedroom
with two roomy bunk beds.

.

   The sunny loft bedroom with queen size bed and views
       to the back of roofs and gardens - and on a clear day - glimpses of the Pyrenees.       
     


Going out the front door and up our little street towards the historical
and ancient central Place of Mirepoix which is only about 200 meters from our cottage
 - passing several shops and restaurants en route. 

 

         
       You then pass under the decorative sign at the end of our street 
       indicating that Mirepoix was originally a Bastide of workers and craftsmen.
           

       You are then into the Place-des-Grandes-Couverts
       the magnificent centre of old Mirepoix - with many up-market shops
       which sell everything from clothing - books - postcards - food 
       and almost everything else you might need.
              

- and there are lots of bars and cafes to make up for the fact that there is no terrace 
         or garden at this cottage. Grab a spot in the sunshine and have a coffee or a drink.
