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!
thank you Emily and tony for a wonderful week. we had 4 days in the house which is better than the pictures and beautifully kept with everything you need for a stress free holiday including a lovely pool. we then walked out of the house across the lane onto one of their fleet of canal boats for 3 days that was so relaxing I nearly fell in the canal de midi. beautiful house beautiful boat beautiful village and lovely people. we will be seeing you soon thank you again sabre and malcolm
