A perfect location

  • 5 of 5

was so pleased to find a handicapped -friendly gite in such a good location. I needed to be near a friend who lives about 25 minutes away. I was greeted by Annie, who gave me a tour of he gite and a welcoming bottle of rose. Kitchen was well equipped with appliances, dishes and silverware. SInce weather was colder than expected, I was glad of efficient heat (which I needed since i live in Florida). Bed was comfortable, as were bath/shower, a very pleasant place which I would highly recommend, and very accessible. Nice outdoor porch with picnic table, gas grill and lovely walled yard. If I am able, I would hope to return.

Lovely welcoming couple.

  • 5 of 5

Annie and Patrick are a lovely couple. They speak great English. Annie gave us a warm welcome, she was happy to provide us with lots or recommendations of places to visit during our stay. The house was very clean and well equipped. It's close to the bakery and the supermarket. Everyone in the village was very friendly. The house is close to Carcassonne and is a great base for visiting other locations. It has a great large bbq and a nice terrace to sit out and eat in evenings.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your appreciative letter. It was a great pleasure to share languages and customs. I'm so happy you like our French countryside just as I liked Glasgow on my visit in April. It's so easy to come by air to Carcassonne and there is a lot to discover here (and I must keep perfecting my English!) King regards Annie and Patrick

Learning French in Villegailhenc!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this delightfull Gite in Villegailhenc while studying French at the Ludo Expression School of French which was ideally situated less than five minutes walk away. The warm welcome you will receive from Annie and Patrick the proprietors is second to none and this couple are willing and able to help you out in any way,especially if you would like information on the surrounding area etc.. The Gite itself is clean and comfortable and well maintained with a lovely garden area and built in BBQ for the warm sunny evenings. I would highly recommend this property for a holiday and especially if your staying in the village to study French at the Ludo School. Patrick and Annie are waiting to give you a warm welcome to this charming region of France.

A wonderful welcome to France

  • 5 of 5

Our week with Patrick and Annie Athiel was an unforgettable way to begin our 6 week vacation in France. Our house was well equipped and comfortable. Annie made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and Patrick provided us with excellent advice about restaurants, routes, places to visit and much more. His help with some problems we had with our car lease was invaluable. During our week we took some French lessons at the local language school. The school was 200m from our house and Patrick and Annie encouraged us to practise what we had learnt with them, as did the shopkeepers in the village. We wish we had the time to stay for a month. Nearby Carcassonne is quite incredible and the small villages of the Pays Cathar were charming. Staying in a small village like Villegailhenc made it easy to come and go as we pleased, while we still had ready access to a large supermarket and other stores nearby. We are looking forward to returning for a longer stay with PatrIck and Annie in the future.
