About Lisa Hope
We arrived in 2005 and chose this beautiful region to bring up our family in.
Lisa Hope purchased this House in 2005
Why Lisa Hope chose Saint-Quentin-la-Tour
We live in a nearby property, the Barn was renovated in 2011.
What makes this House unique
The views of the mountains, the peace and quiet, starry nights and long Summer days make this place very special.

Lovely peaceful location with great facilities for kids
We had a great time in the Barn. The setting was beautiful. The facilities were great and made it so easy with kids (4 and 2 years old.) We particularly loved the outdoor space on the balcony which meant we could be outside without constantly running after our sprinter of a 2 year old.
The Barn is connected to the owner’s property but feels very private. It’s also a great spot for exploring the local area - lots of pretty towns and villages, castles and lakes.
Lisa, the owner, was very helpful in the run up and whilst we were there with any questions we had. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
Stunning and relaxing location, great host, fantastic for young children
Quiet rural barn with an ideal open plan living space with child friendly balcony and outdoor eating area onto a very scenic view. Range of toys for our 6months baby and 2 year old was fantastic and Lisa was excellent in correspondence leading up to the stay to make sure that bedding for them was suitable (choice of bassinet/travel cost/toddler beds with guards). Lots of helpful kids equipment and use of pool and small playground very helpful.
Double bed was also very big and comfortable for us.
Lots of nice daytrips nearby (lake swimming, market towns) and we would definitely stay here again.
Simply but lovely with fabulous views of the Pyrenees
Lovely barn conversion with fabulous views of the Pyrenees which meant beautiful sunsets across the mountains . Loads to see and do in the area and a lovely poole to relax in at the end of the day.
The Barn was a very nice place to stay.
We had a really good time.
Pool is really nice, with a lot of inflatables.
Our little babygirl (2 at arrival) found a lot of toys at the Barn.
The terras has an amazing view and it is really nice to spend time on!
Rooms are big, bathroom was perfect with rainshower and separate bath.
All was very spacious!
Excellent house and location, great holiday
We spent a week at the Barn and it was exactly as promised. The property was clean and immaculately maintained. The views are amazing and the balcony was a great place to take them in. The beds were really comfy and the quiet location really helped us all sleep. There were plenty of toys to entertain our 4 yr old son, when we were in the house. The satellite TV service didn't work, which upset my husband who was keen to follow the football, but really it wasn't an issue. We went to Lac Montbel but preferred the lac at Puivert. The Monday market at Mirepoix was fun. When the weather wasn't that good, we had a great time at the dinosaur museum in Esperaza. I would recommend this property 100 %
Thank you for your lovely review. So sorry that the TV wasn't working I'm afraid it's due to the new satellite but we're hoping a larger dish may help.
All creature comforts
Immaculate, everything we needed. Comfortable beds, lovely bathroom which was warm and cosy. Nice touch with shampoo and shower gel already in shower (so thoughtful as normal supermarket brand, not tiny 'hotel' sample size). Milk, butter, bread, homemade jams left for us, along with coffee and good tea. Upstairs kitchen and living room spacious and well equipped. Beautiful view and chairs on balcony to enjoy it! Our hosts, Lisa and Bas made us very welcome, very comfortable and best of all, we enjoyed the sunshine, peace and quiet and views of the Pyrenees. Our children loved it, too. We will be back as there are still so many things to do in the area. Bravo!
Montsegur , Roquefixade & Puivert are 3 ruined castles within 30 minutes of the barn. Carcassonne is just 50 minutes drive.
Cycling:The area is very popular amongst cyclists and the Tour de France passes through the Ariege almost every year.
Golf: Golf course at Carcassonne.
Ski: The nearest ski resort can be seen from the balcony. Les Monts D'Olmes is a typical small Pyrenean resort which is suitable for all levels of skier with affordable ski hire and ski passes. Only 45 minutes from the Barn, it's a great day out in the winter months and an ideal resort for learning to ski.
