This is a fabulous place to stay for many reasons; firstly, the location is wonderful - close enough to the Cathar castles and Canal du Midi etc. for days out and yet self-contained and perfect if you choose to do very little! secondly, the immediate location is lovely - we swam in the pool and the lake (which is wonderful - there are canoes and pedal boats to potter about with), ate food from the local village (Belpech) and generally chilled out. Pascale is a wonderful host who was there if we needed her and yet discrete and left us to our own devices for the rest of the time. She greeted us one day with home-grown veg from the poly tunnel!
I unreservedly recommend this place to stay. I would only mention that the villa we stayed in for 6-8 people only had one WC, which we thought might be a problem but was fine! There is a loo at the boathouse (80m) away so in fact we used that one as well. This did not detract from the holiday at all but is something to be aware of.
All in all a perfect holiday and thank you very much Pascale for making us so welcome - we hope to return again soon!

Just returned from a week stay at this gorgeous property in Villautou. The views are simply breathtaking; surrounded by gorgeous fields and even views of the Pyrenees on a clear day. The cottage was perfect in every way, very rustic, very French, very beautiful! As a family of four, the cottage met all of our needs in everyway. The kids loved the swimming pool; actually so did the adults. Very refreshing on a hot, sunny day and enough room to have a little swim and lots of fun in. How wonderful that there was an upper and lower terrace at the cottage where we could sit and relax and enjoy the views.The village of Villautou is very peaceful and only a short drive from the gorgeous town of Mirepoix, where there were plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can watch the world go by. Penny and Jean-Noel were there to greet us and explain everything to us, they kept in touch with us throughout our stay to check everything was ok. We can't thank them enough for their help and kindness. Our 11 year son said he'd give the holiday 10 out of 10 - can't do better than that! We would definitely return and highly recommend. Thank you to Penny and Jean-Noel.
