Lovely old house surrounded by rolling hills, trees and farmland. Very good value, much nicer than you might guess from the photos. Owners are friendly and helpful, and will point out to you where is best to eat and visit in the local area. Highly recommended.

We stayed with our three kids (two teenagers) in the whole gite which was very comfortable. A lot of space and a quiet area. The house has everything you need. The garden is lovely and the pool is fine for refreshment. A very good place to relax. You need the car for exploring the area. But biking and hiking is a good alternative. A detailed map is a must have.

Laytoure was a lovely, country gite, as described. Dory and Geoff were fantastic hosts, providing loads of good information and friendly conversation. This was a great place for a quiet time away from everything, and an easy place from which to drive to castles, caves and hikes.

This is a lovely apartment with 1 bedroom plus kitchen/sitting room in the heart of the pays Cathare. Dory was very helpful with directions and places to shop. Both Dory and her husband were friendly, welcoming and helpful during our stay. The apartment served us well. Our only quibble is that there were no basics: oil, vinegar, coffee- that guests might not have carried with them. We asks to borrow oil and vinegar and Dory graciously gave them. That's a small quibble: it was all made up for by the fun I had singing and playing traditional music with Dory. I recommend Laytoure highly.

We had a perfect time at Dory´s B&B; the rustic house is absolutely amazing, everything around is green and quiet and the Dicksons took the time to make our staying even more special . We recommend the Laytoure B&B to everyone visiting the surrounding area, or looking for some nice, quiet quality time. Thanks for everything Dory.

Une maison pleine de charme. Une vielle batisse rénovée avec goût. Le jardin et sa piscine permettent aux enfants de profiter du séjour. Point de départ idéal pour la découverte du Nord Ariège (Mas d'Azil; Saint Lizier; Foix). Nous recommandons vivement.

Séjour en tout point impeccable. Le gîte est très bien équipé, surtout pour des familles avec enfants. Dory est une hote remarquable qui se met en quatre pour que votre séjour se passe bien. À recommander sans hésitation

I'm from Newcastle on Tyne, England. I 'retired' to France with my partner in 2013 after a career working with children and young people. We spend our time enjoying the Ariege and restoring the part of the house that we live in (the guest accommodation is already done). I play Northumbrian pipes and concertina so if you bring a musical instrument you will be especially welcome.
I'm required to give you some official information about the accommodation. It's registered with our local Mairie and with the Chambre de Commerce in Foix. My SIRET business registration number is and my business email address is There is no tourist tax in our area so there are no hidden fees.
