Really relaxed four days in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had spent some time in the area a few years ago and loved it and so got drawn back. We couldn't have been happier to come back with two of our children, visiting the market town of Mirepoix is a treat, bicyling and walking in the beautiful surroundings was heavenly. Alain and Marc's father were both very helpful when something was needed and we loved the atmosphere of the house. We would come back again! Thank you. Camilla

Agradable sobriedad

  • 5 of 5

Disfrutar de la sencillez y el buen gusto de esta bonita casa, con todo lo necesario y sólo lo imprescindible.

Estuvimos alojados esta semana santa, un punto de partida muy completo. La buhardilla para las niñas, inmejorable y nos quedamos con las ganas de.aprovechar más la terraza y la barbacoa.

Aunque el pueblo no tiene servicios, se puede llegar en 20 minutos a todo lo necesario y se pueden hacer muchas visitas interesantes.

En definitiva, una experiencia muy recomendable.

Nous recommandons ce gite charmant !

  • 5 of 5

Nous recommandons vivement ce superbe gite très bien rénové et décoré !

Nous y avons passé une excellente semaine, très bon point de départ pour les très nombreux attraits touristique de cette magnifique région.

Marc nous a fourni de très intéressantes recommandations touristiques et gastronomiques qui nous ont été bien utiles !

Le village est tout aussi charmant que le gite.

Charming house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our children in this lovingly restored house, which feels more like a home than a holiday rental. The owner, Marc, was incredibly helpful, sending us lots of information about the area before we arrived, and we were given a warm welcome by the keyholder, Alain (who speaks excellent English). Many long evenings were spent outside on the terrace watching swallows and house martins, and we especially enjoyed visiting the local towns of Mirepoix and Limoux, exploring the many châteaux in the area and bathing in nearby lakes. A most memorable holiday - thank you!
