Welcome to Mas De Garrigue
Mas de Garrigue, a 15th century former hunting lodge and fortified
farm is a stunning and important historic house retaining many original
features within such as vast stone fireplaces, arrowslits, a 15th century
window , stone sinks, magnificent oak beams and pigeon coops. Sarah
and Steven have lovingly and respectfully restored the house, with elegant
taste and sometimes a contemporary twist. The marriage of Irish antiques
and art with French architecture is harmonious and charming.
Sarah and Steven provide warm Irish hospitality in the beautiful Midi
Pyrenees of South West France. Sarah studied cuisine in Paris and Steven
hails from the well known Irish culinary and hospitible Allen clan.
Passionate about food and wine, they offer sumptious dinners of homegrown
and locally sourced produce. Steve rears 2 "Noir de Gascon"
pigs every year which Sarah transforms into delicious terrines, pates,
saucisse and hams. Steven keeps the kitchen stocked with vegetables,
tomatos, herbs and even Saffron.
