A small, fully renovated, village cottage, located in the beautiful southern region of France bordering the Pyrenees mountains, and within easy reach of Toulouse, Carcassonne, Spain, and the attractions of the French Mediterranean.

The space

This is a traditional cottage in a small French village, beautifully renovated to the very highest standards. The house sleeps 4 people and is ideal for 1 or 2 couples or a small family and comes supplied with bed linen and towels. Located in a beautiful region bordering the Pyrenees mountains, it is within easy reach of Spain, Barcelona, as well as the attractions of the French Mediterranean. A stay in St. Jacques, the name of our cottage, offers a taste of French village life with its markets and sublime countryside, with access also to the cultural attractions of major nearby cities like Toulouse and Carcassonne. Or in winter, to ski fields of the Pyrenees and Andorra. The cottage combines the old charm of original building materials with modern finishes and equipment. While you will want to try the local restaurants, we’ve set up the house for people who also love to cook and sample the local produce. You will find a large range of sharp knives and cooking utensils. Fully renovated, the cottage has three levels which comprise a ground floor lounge and toilet, a second floor kitchen and dinning area, and a top floor of two bedrooms and a second toilet and bathroom. The cottage has highly effective hydronic central heating and comes with TV and DVD, and a selection of French and English language films. The house telephone is available for guests to use for calls within France, free of charge. The internet wi fi connection is reliable and fast. While there is no garden, the house is within a 30 metre walk of the French countryside and a small river. The region is ideal for cycling and walking and bikes may be rented in the village.

Guest access

Guests have use of the entire house.

Interaction with guests

We have a local agent who lives in the same village and who speaks English and French. He also undertakes maintenance and cleaning for us.
The house can be difficult to find, so it useful to call ahead to our local agent to arrange for him to meet you.

Other things to note

Guests will need a car in order to travel to and from the cottage. There is no public transport.

While small, the village has a bar cafe that cooks excellent and cheap meals.

A well-reviewed restaurant has also opened recently, called Creamundo.

We have a part time post office, a hairdresser and a small market (Les Halles de Léran), which sells fresh bread and pastries every day from 8 to 12.30 except Mondays. On Tuesdays and Saturdays Les Halles offers a small range of fresh local fruit and vegetables, which is generally excellent.

A well-stocked supermarket with a wide selection of local produce and wines is located within a 6-minute drive of the house.

The place is very light and welcoming. The 3 flights of stairs can be a little tiresome; you soon learn to organise yourself. The little village is quite quaint, and the people readily greet you with a bonjour. It is well located with many great features close by. A go kart track is a few kms away, and a trip to the foot hills of the Pyrenees is within easy reach. A drive on the main road heading west, seeing the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees - that in itself was a great attraction.

The village is in a lovely location with some good walks nearby. Neil's place is clean and easy to find. John, the caretaker was really helpful and considerate - he lives right around the corner. The set up was good, just watch your head on the third bedroom, as the ceiling is low, but the other two bedrooms are good. Heating well provided for. Kitchen great and well stocked. Good bathroom. We didn't use the downstairs lounge room at all as it smells too musty and damp, even with the door and window open. However, there are plenty of cushions and space in the dining/kitchen area as the main room we used. Thanks Neil!

Neil's home is typically French. It has lots of room on three floors. However it does not have a garden or an area to sit out. His home is well equipped and there was nothing that I needed he did not have. The local residents were friendly and the village's music, food and drinks festival which is held on Friday's throughout July and August was a tremendous event that was a fantastic experience.

This is a simple little house in a beautiful village in a beautiful part of France. We loved the walks, markets and restaurants we found on our day trips. The house is just as advertised - everything we needed for our weeks stay. Excellent communication and easy local connection made check in easy.

Neil was great with his communication before the stay - his house notes were the best we've ever seen and explained everything in the house, as well as providing many tips about local activities and outings. Neil's local agents were easy to find, were friendly, showed us around, and were only 100m away if we needed them (we didn't). The cottage was more spacious than the photos appeared and Neil has really thought out what works in a holiday cottage. There are guides maps, books to read, kitchen equipment and more. We enjoyed cooking food from the local markets. Leran was a wildcard choice for us and we weren't sure what we'd find in the area, but it was a great base for exploring the surrounding area, while the local cafe and the countryside were both about 50m away. The village itself was charming, a very short walk from the cottage takes you over the old stone bridge and past the local chateau.

Celia and I live and work in the culturally and ethnically diverse city of Melbourne, Australia.

We love traveling, especially in France where our holiday cottage is located.

We like to share our knowledge of the region in which our cottage is located and encourage guests to get the most out of their stay.

I have worked for many years in communications and marketing and am a partner in a creative agency.

History, politics, culinary traditions, wine and art are particular interests of mine.

Stay curious!
