I stayed a week in October, my first visit to the region in Autumn . I know the area well and was delighted to see the beautiful autumnal colours and to find that it was still warm enough to sit outside on the front patio till well into the evening. I enjoyed several glasses of wine and appreciated the quiet, broken only by the occasional moo or neigh from the neighbouring livestock. The setting of the gite is quite lovely,well away from the bustle of the town but still within easy driving distance. The area itself offers a huge range of possibilities, with visits to Mirepoix, the Pyrenees, Cathar country and Foix all musts.
The gite is extremely comfortable and homely. The bedroom is a good size, with very comfortable sleigh bed and a good sized ensuite .The living and dining area is comfortable and extremely well equipped.It was wonderful to have WIFI and satellite TV to enjoy my favourite programmes. I did not mind too much when it rained one day because there were plenty of DVDs to watch. I was delighted to find a USB connection to view my photos on the flat screen TV. There was an abundance of everything needed for cooking and dining so preparing some meals was no trouble, though at lunchtime it is also worth checking out the excellent value lunches offered by restaurants in the area.At the rear of the gite a balcony gives a view out over the fields and down to the large swimming pool and sun deck which I hope to enjoy on a return trip.
I found the standard of cleanliness most satisfactory. My hosts, Sara and Jeff, were friendly, helpful and informative. They never intruded on my privacy but were happy to chat and nothing seemed to be too much bother for them. They have a true love of their home and share their enthusiasm with their guests. I felt I had made good friends and I look forward to returning next year.
