Meadowtops gite is located in the small hamlet of Toubies.
Meadowtops is a self catering holiday property sleeping up to 6 people. Tucked away on a sunny south-facing hillside in a truly idyllic setting, located in the beautiful and wild French Midi Pyrenees. Surrounded by meadow & woodland with stunning views of the Pyrenees mountains and access to a beautiful swimming pool and hot tub.
We have a large, comfortable open plan kitchen / dining / living area with windows that look out onto views of the Pyrenees mountains. There is a well-equipped kitchen with range cooker, microwave, large fridge freezer and dish washer. A separate utility room has a washing machine, iron and ironing board, along with ample shelving storage for your groceries.
The dining area has a large cottage style dining table and chairs. The living area has a two-seater and five-seater sofa around a large antique coffee table. There is a wood burning stove; flat screen television with UK digital channels; blue-tooth radio and free Wifi.
Next to the utility room is a large shower room and downstairs toilet with sink and heated towel rail.
There are three large double bedrooms (two with double beds and one with twin beds) all with cotton bed linen. A cot can be provided on request. All three bedrooms have stunning views of the surrounding area. Art work on the walls is inspired by these views.
There is an upstairs bathroom with full sized bath, toilet, sink and heated towel rail.
We have a shaded veranda, with table and chairs and BBQ. The veranda opens onto a secure good-sized garden. As the house is mainly south facing so the garden basks in sunshine all day. The decked area to the side of the house is home to the hot tub for private use of visitors to Meadowtops. There are sun loungers and parasol for you to use.
From the garden, a short path up the hill takes you behind the cottage to the pool garden. The garden is enclosed on three sides by trees, shrubs and lavender and has beautiful views across the mountains. There is a large, heated, in-ground single depth pool; loungers and parasols. The pool is open 8am to 6pm to allow for cleaning and maintenance and is available May to September depending on weather. The pool is shared with the properties parents and visiting family who live 100m up the hill.
There is ample private parking alongside the gite.

Garry and Debbie (owners parents) look after Meadowtops and live approximately 100 metres away. Pets live on the property – Debbie and Garry have a gentle dog (Olga) who is used to children and likes to visit if the gate to the Gite is left open. They also have three friendly cats who like to visit on occasion.
Meadowtops is in an area of outstanding wild beauty where sightings of birds of prey, deer and other animals and birds are common. We love the peace and tranquility of the area and really enjoy the slower pace of life when we are able to take a holiday from work and come out to visit. Whilst this is a rural area and a car is essential to get around, there are lots of amenities and activities within easy driving distance. Our closest village is St Croix Volvestre, which is about 5-10 minutes drive or you can walk there in approximately 20 minutes along the wooded path (down hill on the way there / uphill on the way back, steep in places) taking in magnificent scenery as you walk. The village is very traditional and pretty. There is a cash point, post office, tourist information office, small grocery shop, restaurant/bar, small weekly produce market and public swimming lake. In Cazeres (approximately 20 minutes drive), there are restaurants, cafes, local shops, Post Office and supermarket with petrol station. Our nearest airport is Toulouse Blagnac, which is approximately one hour drive from Toubies.
