Welcome to Chez Hawkins.  We are a family run gite and event centre in the village of Fougax-et-Barrineuf nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees, France.

Our village sits below one of the historic Cathar castles, the Chateau de Montsegur.

Gite with Swimming Pool

We have a beautiful spacious gite which is airy in summer and warm in winter. We can accommodate up to 10 people comfortably. There’s a fantastic 10m x 5m salt-water swimming pool with amazing views up the beautiful Gorge de la Frau.

Outside July and August we host and run a range of Group events – click the link to see what we’ve got going on.

In The Area

We are in a lovely area with many things to see and do.

We’re a mecca for all types of cycling and mountain walks start the moment you step out of the front door. There’s also  an acro-branche, prehistoric caves, white-water rafting, via ferrata, horse riding and rock-climbing, skiing, cross-country skiing, walking/snow-shoeing in the winter all very close by. The area is also famous for the Cathar castles perched on their ‘pogs’ which stretch all the way down to the Mediterranean.
