This is 5 star accommodation for sure. The owners are fantastic and there is loads to do in the surrounding area. We went white water rafting, canyoning, to see the Tour de France, on the high ropes and on a Via Ferrata as well as having lovely days sat by the pool and sat around the fire pit at night.... More

Great view from bedroom window and it was everything else that has resulted in excellence. My wife and I were there on a 5 day photography course with the Nikon expert, Simon Stafford, in October 2015. Giles & Louise, our host and hostess, who moved from the UK some time ago, and then spent huge amount of time as DIY... More

What comment can add to 199 first-rate reviews that give such a positive and fully justified impression of holidays at Manzac d’en Bas? Yes, the landscape is a rural idyll with a breathtaking view of the distant Pyrenees, all manner of picturesque rustic implements and obliging sheep and cows in nearby fields waiting for the artist or photographer. The purpose-built... More

Two years ago I rated Manzac as "Faultless;" in theory it couldn't be any better, but on this year's painting holiday it was, so "Faultless +" perhaps. I had one very generously sized bedroom (twin beds) of a two bedroom gite, views in two directions, with it's own en-suite bathroom. Downstairs was a spacious kitchen and living/dining area with views... More

A great painting holiday with friends. The room was so clean and comfortable with gorgeous views, and with the use of a purpose built studio. Giles and Louise made us feel so welcome and are excellent hosts.

Recommended by friends with whom I travelled. Wonderful welcome. Giles & Louise were expert hosts & catered for our every need. This was an area of France I had not visited before but I hope to go back. The villages where Giles & Louise took us to paint were fascinating. The lunches brought to us were delicious, as were evening... More

Once again Giles and Louise have supplied the perfect painting holiday.....going the extra mile is second nature to these tireless and generous hosts.....Hitch a lift or get on a plane,hire a flying carpet or ride on a train,just get there!! and enjoy top tutors,amazing views,great hospitality and good humour. I am already planning to stay for a 4th time.

This was out third visit to Manzac for a painting holiday which in itself says so much. The organisation is superb starting with the pick up at Toulouse airport. You soon leave the city behind and arrive at this wonderfully restored farm house with views of the Pyrenees. Throughout the week we were so well looked after by Giles and... More
