Description for B&B:

Domaine Thomson is a lovely guesthouse in a small village in the Ariege region of the Pyrenees, France, nestling amongst rolling hills. It is a great place to `get away from it all`, without being too `far from the madding crowd. A 15 minute drive from Mirepoix, ville Cathar, and 1 hour from Carcassonne or Toulouse, the two nearest airports.'Domaine Thomson' offers:

* Peace and quiet, and a most beautiful outlook.

* Two double/twin ensuite bedrooms and also a family bedroom that can sleep four with access to a family sized bathroom.

* An outdoor sheltered patio, for sitting/breakfasting.

* Private large, outdoor swimming pool.

* Free wireless internet to all guests

* Big parking area and lockable storage areas for bicycles.

* Evening meals will on occasion be available, reservations made in advance.

* A large dining room, and a huge fireplace in the sitting room.

* Kitchen area available also at an extra per/night cost

* A house built about 1830, that although old, is comfortably furnished, retaining interesting features

* A great place to stay to use as a base and explore the surrounding countryside, by walking, cycling, horse-riding, or just taking the car out and going a bit further. This whole area is culturally/historically/architecturally interesting, not forgetting the all important - where to eat, what to eat! I have also a reasonable knowledge of local walks and can recommend different routes that give stunning views, and pass through a variety of landscapes.

Engravies can easily be reached from two big airports both within one and a quarter hours drive and with car rental facilities. Major roads and easy to navigate motorways will take you most of the way, then a short spell on quiet country roads bringing you to the guesthouse.

Toulouse airport

* On leaving the airport follow signs for Toulouse, then once onto the main road (Periferique) follow signs for Montpelier.

* Continue along the Periferique, don`t be alarmed if for a while there are no signs for Montpelier, just continue.

* At the start of the Autoroute for Montpelier, Carcassonne, and Barcelona, it is also sign-posted to Foix and Andorra. You need to take a ticket, it is a fee paying motorway, then when you leave you pay.

* After going along this for some kilometres you branch off the autoroute following the signs for Pamiers, Foix, and Andorra.

* At end of autoroute place ticket into machine. It will cost Euros 4.40 or Euros 5 depending on time of day.

* Continue till second exit for Pamiers. You will pass a commercial estate with a giant Carrefour (supermarche) clearly visible from the carriageway. Take this exit sign-posted for Mirepoix. It is a tight turn.

* At roundabout take first exit direction Mirepoix.

* Continue and pass through Les Pujols.

* Take the second sign on the right after this to Vira and Dun. This comes very quickly after a turn-off towards Les Issards.

* Follow road through Vira and continue 2 miles.

* Turn right direction Engravies.

* Enter village of Engravies over bridge, continue 100meters then turn left at house with green shutters.

Carcassonne airport

* On leaving Carcassonne airport (Salveza) turn right.

* Follow directions for Montreal.

* After Montreal head towards Fanjeaux, and then Mirepoix.
