Having come from the stresses of working life in London, I found arriving at L’Olivier in Les Gîtes du Somail just what the doctor ordered! The flat is clean and quaint and has everything you could need at its disposal. As I was there during the mid August heatwave I found the AC most helpful. The swimming pool is just lovely, the views gorgeous and the many areas to sit a real bonus. The property offers the loan of free bikes which made for some beautiful rides along the Canal du Midi or to the nearby shops and restaurants for local dishes.
You will find Stéphane and Françoise the most attentive and helpful of hosts regarding any issue with your flat or advice on excursions, my partner and I visiting both the Mediterranean and the mountains. If you stay there for longer than a week, they offer a free clean of your flat, and if you are very lucky you get to sample their delicious home-grown green tomatoes! A must! 😁
If I had any changes to suggest it would be that there were a cafetière in the flat for an alternative way of making coffee than the machine, and also that there were some international news channels on the TV. Otherwise I cannot recommend Les Gîtes du Somail more highly!
Beautifully finished house in a modern style with a bigger than expected pool which is big enough for adults and children to enjoy. Le Somail has 4-5 restaurants, a grocery shop, clothes shop, boat hire and library on your doorstep. Estelle is a very generous and accommodating hostess.
