Lovely and charming! We’ll be back there for sure! The suroundings are impressive and kid-friendly (Ping pong, games and swimming pool) and the breakfast with homemade jams are overwelming.

La Sra. Sarah Thomson es una anfitriona excelente, ella misma lo hace todo. Tenéis que probar su cocina y sus mermeladas. Avisad antes que cenareis con ella para que os pueda preparar su supercena, familiar !

Here’s what Francoise wrote “Cadre très agréable pour un séjour reposant et dépaysant: la piscine et le jardin sont tout simplement magnifiques ! La maison est très bien équipée et Sarah est une personne attentionnée et très disponible. Les commerces sont toutefois un peu loin...mais plusieurs frigos étaient à notre disposition ! Nous rentrons avec plein de bons souvenirs. ”

Here’s what Sylvie wrote (elle est restée en juillet pendant dix jours. “Si vous cherchez le calme et la sérénité, mais que vous avez aussi envie de visiter et de découvrir, si vous aimez la nature mais que vous appréciez le confort, vous aimerez le Domaine Thomson. Nous étions 6 (trois couples) et y avons passé 10 jours formidables, entre les bastides, châteaux, grottes mais aussi la terrasse et la magnifique piscine, le temps a passé trop vite. Sarah est de très bon conseil et nous a permis de découvrir quelques trésors de la région (du viticulteur local au meilleur endroit pour voir le feu d'artifice du 14 juillet à Carcassonne en passant par la fête de village à laquelle nous avons pu participer grâce à elle).”

Sara who is the owner was so friendly and helpful. Location is perfect for us. Facility is basic so generally ok for us. My favourite part is she made delicious fruit mixed for our breakfast.

“This was a wonderful end to our time in France. Sarah is a gracious host with detailed knowledge of the area. She cooked wonderful meals from local produce, much from her garden. She guided us on walking/running routes. The house is lovely in a little village set in a valley. Highly recommended. If you do stay, do ask if she can cook for you you will be have a real treat.”

“Sarah was very friendly and helpful and a real guide to pointing out where to go and eat. Her breakfasts were truly great. We eat in on sunday and the meal that was prepared and enjoyed was better than many in Mirepoix - and all either home grown or locally sourced (from local hunters). We would highly recommend staying here and would / will do so again. Don't forget to bring your swimming cosy as pool is great as well.”

“A perfect break” 5 of 5 This was the second time we had stayed at Sarah’s and we enjoyed it just as much as before. Sarah is a warm and welcoming host and nothing is too much trouble for her. We enjoyed the run of her house and garden; she let us use a fridge to store cheese and wine and lent us plates etc to eat our ‘picnic’ evening meal. We enjoyed sitting in her inviting lounge in front of the wood burning stove in the evenings. Although it was too cold to use the outdoor pool, we enjoyed sitting in the garden and watching the antics from her flock of white geese. Sarah grows a lot of fruit and vegetables and they feature in the homemade preserves and compot for breakfast as well as in the excellent evening meal she provides. Yes you do need a car, but there are supermarkets, restaurants and the town of Mirepoix only about a 15 / 20 minute drive away on good roads. Sarah is very knowledgeable of the many attractions to visit in this area and more than willing to make bookings and recommendations for you. She also has a wealth of informative literature for you to read and maps which you are free to borrow. Sarah really goes above and beyond and we left her house reluctantly but feeling rested and rejuvenated. Stayed October 2016, travelled as a couple

“perfect place to unwind” we found this wonderful little hideway on tripadvisor and enjoyed relaxing at the pool in the middle of nowhere before continuing sightseeing. nice, clean rooms with a tiny bathroom hidden in the wardrobe. sarah, our charming host, served us fresh rasberries from her garden and homemade marmelade for breakfast, wonderful! Séjour du juin 2015

“Perfect” Brilliant location for friends and family to holiday together. We self catered for a week in July. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax in. Large private garden always somewhere shady to sit to eat an evening meal together. Added bonus of a lovely 12m swimming pool. Sarah was very helpful in recommending places to visit and some excellent cycling routes which were spectacular!

Al Ng (Hongkong) wrote you a review “Sarah is very welcoming and a good cook. We stay for 2 nights and enjoy it so much. The bathroom of the Family Suite is huge, and there are plenty of amenities available in the house. Both the breakfast and dinner prepared by Sarah are fresh (mostly from her garden) and we have a good time sharing with Sarah and other guests. The highlight is the swimming pool which both adults and kids can enjoy. Thanks Sarah! ”

“Family friendly oasis” We stayed here with our two young children when in the area for a wedding. Sarah made us so welcome in her lovely home. First impressions were good as we arrived to be greeted by Sarah who showed the kids her toy supply and showed us to a pot of tea, croissants and apricots for use in her beautiful, tranquil gardens. She was then able to provide us with a last minute two course meal that evening which was delicious and accompanied by local wine. Swimming pool is crystal clear, our room was charming, clean and beds comfortable and the breakfast was so good. Sarah's thoughtfulness made it so easy to be away with a baby in tow. We had a lovely stay and only wish we had longer and had sampled a full evening meal... Already thinking of an excuse to go back again. Thank you. Séjour du juin 2015

+ “This is an oasis. If you want to stay in a very comfortable B and B in a small French Village with a superb host you should not miss this place. The countryside is beautiful, it is close to Mirepoix and an easy drives to the Grotte de Niaux. Sarah who runs the house is very knowledgeable and willing to help. She is also an amazing cook and we ate both evening meals with her. Set in a beautiful garden and has a great swimming pool.” - Nothing 8.6.14

“A most enjoyable stopover from previous bustle of Barcelona. Having been delayed and late in arrival, it was heavenly to walk into the homely comfort of delicious cooking aroma and comfortable lodgings. Sarah was very helpful in providing excellent local information to assist in our travel planning. Consequently we enjoyed a wonderful following morning at nearby Mirepoix markets and gorgeous cathedral. This B and B is well worth patronizing.” 21.10.14

“Wonderful home cooked food with fresh vegatables and fruit from the lovely tranquil garden. Sarah is such a lovely hostess. We could not speak more highly of her. She is very knowledgable about the local area and could not have been more helpful when we had a problem with our car..” 23.6.15

“An oasis in rural France” June 2014. We stayed here for 2 nights last week and only wished it was longer! From the moment we arrived Sarah (our hostess) was warm and very welcoming. We had 2 adjoining rooms with a large bathroom. We loved the pretty garden, used the fabulous pool and enjoyed the cosy living room (with a huge assortment of English books and toys). The breakfasts were sensational (fresh croissants, still warm hard boiled eggs, yoghurt and fresh berries and homemade jams from Sarah's garden). Luckily we made the decision to dine in both nights...Sarah made us two delicious meals with her home grown produce and other local goods. We visited a couple of local attractions (the Niaux caves and chateau Lastours) on her recommendation and were very impressed with both. We left feeling relaxed and spoiled....highly recommended.

“traversée des pyrénées” Nous nous sommes arrêtés à Engraviès dans notre traversée des Pyrénées. Nous vous recommandons cette halte pour son calme et l'accueil de la "patronne". Elle a su nous aider à organiser nos journées, visites et promenades. Discrétion, disponibilité, générosité, propreté sont quelques qualités que nous pouvons attribuer à cette maison. Demandez à découvrir "sa"cuisine. 13 fév. 2014

“What an excellent tranquil location!” Many people say that they would like to get away from it all. Well we were fortunate enough to find that very exceptional place. We had been enjoying some time in Spain at the beginning of this year and on our journey back to the UK we stopped off at Domaine Thomson which had been recommended to us by a friend. On arrival we were given an extremely warm welcome by the owner who immediately offered us a nice hot drink before showing us around her warm comfortable and well appointed home. Well decorated with some very nice antiques acquired at local 'brocantes' the attractive bedrooms had super en-suites concealed from the rooms behind what looked like large wardrobe doors, very clever. Although it was the end of January and beginning of February we thought the grounds with their own swimming pool must be a veritable sun-trap in the spring & summer in their beautiful setting at the foot of the Pyrenees. We have said we intend to return in high season and at the risk of disturbing the tranquilty we would have no hesitation in recommending Domaine Thomson to friends and family. Jan. 2014.

Super accueil. Nous sommes passés au Domaine Thomson pour une course, le Trail du maquis, qui se déroulait à 3km de là. Sarah est une hôtesse d'une grande gentillesse, et nous avons été très bien accueillis. Nous avons un bébé de 4 mois, Sarah a sorti une caisse de jeux bien fournie pour l'amuser. Joli jardin, avec piscine. Penser à revenir aux beaux jours. fév. 2014.

“Perfect” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 30 July 2013 Together with family we've rented this place for a week, too bad it was only one week... The house is located very quiet township. The house is maybe not state of the art, but it's very charming. In the kitchen everything you needed was there, clean bedrooms, all with a very nice view. With breakfast/lunch/dinner we always sat outside under the tree, really lovely. The swimming pool is very clean, right amount of chlorine, umbrella's and loungers. The location of the swimming pool is also very beautifull, flowers around, makes it even more relaxing. I would advice this place to all kind or groups, family, friends, young, old. If you want to enjoy the beautifull France, this is one of the places to go. Furthermore you'll get a warm welcome of the friendly host when you arrive and if you have questions during your stay, you can always call her, she'll be happy to help you. Stayed July 2013, travelled with family

"Wonderful place" We stayed 3 nights in late October. The place was easy to find from Toulouse (with good instructions and a map from Sarah) and what a gem it is. The house has lots of charm and character and is located in a small hamlet deep in rural Fance. The rooms were charming , the beds comfortable and showers great. Best of all was our host Sarah (a remarkable women) who was an exceptional host. Her cooking / food was excellent as was her charm and hospitality and also her local knowledge of places of interest to us.

"like falling into the rabbit hole in alice and wonderland" it was absolutly lovely, im used to city living so this was the perfect retreat for relaxation, lovely walks and the nearby town of Mirepoix was great with its medieval square. i spent quite a lot of time horse riding which was avilable a 3minute walk away. the house was traditional french which i loved and we had a banquet on a couple of nights which were just fantastic, far better than i had imagined and definately value for money! the rooms we were in were clean and on suite which was a bonus, outside there is a pool but because its not heated we found it a bit cold! but im sure it would be welcomed over the hotter summer months. it was mild whilst we were here but in the evenings it did cool down so the owner lit the enormous fire in the living area which again just added to the atmosphere! i would definately recommend staying here as i will be again, it is most definately a true find.

"Comfortable accomodation on a lovely property in a great location." Very nice area Secluded and private whilst open and expansive nice scenery, views, drives and sights Property was spacious and gave me a very comfortable stay A choice of beds in different rooms with different outlooks Superb W/C facilities Excellent exposure to French culture; local, historical and personal. Arriving at Domaine Thomson you realise how fantastically secluded it is, giving you the freedom to fully relax without concern of annoying others. The property has large grounds, perfect for relaxing and basking in the sun. A lovely swimming pool is a treat in the middle of the hot days, with pool side loungers for the complete experience. If you can prise yourself away from the lovely valley where Domaine Thomson is located a short drive will take you to the culture rich medieval market town of Mirepoix. A little further is the famous Carcassonne with the even more well known Carcassonne castle! With an owner knowledgeable on the local area of sights attractions and wonders you may struggle to be disappointed. An area of beauty and warmth shielded from the French tourist trail, a true hidden gem. A great place to base your self when visiting the Pyrenees.

"Delightful accommodation in the beautiful Ariege" It is a lovely comfortable house in a quiet village. Pleasant grounds with large swimming pool. Ideal for exploring the area by car, on foot through woods and hills or by bike on many quiet and picturesque roads. We stayed in February when the weather could still be warm. No swimming but still plenty to do. The old town of Mirepoix is a short drive from the house. It is not far to the Pyrenees and the small ski resort of Mont d'Olmes is less than an hour away for a day on the snow! Nothing is too much trouble for the owner Sarah who can provide local knowledge or delicious meals or just let you do your own thing.

An English oasis in the French countryside My family and I spent 3 days with Sarah at the beginning of our French holiday. The accomodation was clean and more than adequate and the breakfasts were great. Both father and son are cyclists and Sarah ensured they received a hearty breakfast which always included eggs. (Something we missed on the rest of our holiday) Every evening, we came back to a home cooked meal – Sarah introduced us to a number of new vegetables. The pool was a welcome respite and despite the inclement weather, we used it on a number of occasions. Sarah's genuine interest in her clients makes this establishment stand out from any of the others we visited during our stay in France. We will most definitely pencil this in for our next visit to France.

8 November, 2013

My wife and I went to [Engravies] for winemaking lessons from 2 to 5 Nov 2010. in fact we just came back. It was an amazing experience. the Winemaker was a charming man that Sarah had set us up with, and it was perfect. Sarah is a perfect host with her willingness to go out of her way to help and her attention to detail made evrything so perfect. thank you Sarah and we wish you every success.

8 November, 2013

Great Base For Exploring the French Countryside We only stayed one night because we were on the move, but I wish we could have stayed a week. Sarah was a very pleasant hostess, and cooked a great dinner for us. She can also give you lots of information on the area. Beautiful and peaceful…
