The Place du Maréchal-Leclerc in the nearby town of Mirepoix, is one of the best and most evocative medieval squares in Europe to see, and a perfect example of people friendly architecture. The medieval buildings that line the square offer the shade of ground floor arcades held up by absolutely massive beams--those of the Maison des Consuls are carved with representations of people and animals at the ends of the beams. The tourist office of Mirepoix is in this square.
Monday is the weekly outdoor market in the Place du Maréchal-Leclerc, and it shouldn`t be missed. Mirepoix will always be associated with fine French cooking, having given its name to the basic starting point of aromatic chopped vegetables consisting of carrots, onions and celery. (Actually, a chef named them after his patron, a military man from Mirepoix with the rather lengthy name of Charles-Pierre-Gaston-François de Lévis du Mirepoix.)
The church of St Maurice built in 1298 by Jean de Lévis was transformed over time into the Mirepoix cathedral--Cathédrale Saint-Maurice de Mirepoix. It`s Gothic and known for its wide nave, the second widest in Europe.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. The gite was very comfortable, tasteful and well equipped. The garden is beautiful, and the view from the terrace and pool are absolutely spectacular. We enjoyed evening walks, watching the sun go down over the stunning countryside. It`s a very peaceful spot. Andrew, Jo and Jasmine are very welcoming and helpful, and gave us lots of information and tips about the area. The boys enjoyed collecting eggs from the chickens and feeding the goats, and even got to go on a mini adventure when one of the dogs went AWOL! It`s a fabulous area to explore and we`d recommend visits to Mirepoix, Alet-les-Bains, Rennes-le-Chateau, Montsegur and Lac de Montbel. Thank you again.

We stopped looking at other gites when we saw the photos on the website - the picture of the pool with the rolling countryside beyond looked idyllic. And we were not disappointed. The undulating countryside surrounding Polfages is really beautiful with its backdrop of mountains. The gite itself was lovely - spacious, comfortable and very nicely furnished with a large open kitchen and a patio/outdoor dining area overlloking the garden with views across the valley. We spent a lot more time at the pool and a lot less time sightseeing than we had intended because it was just so nice to chill in such pleasant surroundings. And Andrew and Jo, the owners, made us feel very welcome on our arrival and throughout our stay.
The property is clean and homely with all the amenities that you would have in a first class rental property. Views are exceptional and there is a relaxing feel to the gite. Just what you hope for on a holiday. ! Able to sightsee or just relax overlooking the beautiful views. The beds and bedding are worth mentioning as they are superb !!! Lovely crisp clean sheets and a very comfortable bed indeed. We also took the opportunity to enjoy a meal cooked by the owners (Andrew and Jo )whilst out there as advertised . It was delicious and I would certainly take up this option again . Andrew and Jo were also able to help us with many hints and tips on what to see and where to go. Very useful when the area is new to you. They both made you very welcome indeed. We will be returning in May next year. Already booked.
