HOME: Gîte de la Maison Laporte


Gîte de la Maison, Laporte
, Durfort, Ariege, 09130, Midi Pyrenees, France

Maison Laporte is a stunning 240+year old Maison de Maître situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, 50 km direction South from Toulouse, with uninterrupted views of the mountains.

Laporte comes under the community area of a small pretty village called Durfort http://isaisons.free.fr/Durfort.htm and if you put our address into google maps http://maps.google.com/ you can see just how private the house is. There is no traffic (private road), clean air, very distant light pollution at night, perfect star viewing, no noises except for nature and beautiful uninterrupted views in every direction.

The house has one lovely self-contained gîte for rent, which we call Foxy Lodge, positioned on the woodland side. Its is pure peace, time to enjoy nature at its best. We are proud that our efforts to improve biodiversity on the land
scapes have been such a success that we are now filled with butterflies, bees, frogs and birds to enjoy. Facilities include swimming pool for the summer with a fantastic view.

The gardens have been beautifully re-landscaped and the land around has been seeded with a variety of grasses, herbs and wildflowers. Over 2000 trees and mixed hedgerows have been planted on our land and more is planted each year. We created steps and a path that takes you all around our land and a relaxing hammock area within the woodland.

We have included some information on this website but feel free to contact us for any further information and have a look at the pictures of the gite and surroundings area on our advert with Gites NL website
