We spent a week here in August, self-catering, with our four children aged 15, 13, 11 and 6. The gite itself was beyond our expectations - very spacious, comfortable, beautifully furnished and clean. The views across the garden, over the valley and with the mountains in the background were stunning. The pool was perfect, clean and with plenty of loungers/seats... More

Staring with the view from the house - which is wonderful - it just got better. Great food, lovely company, nice room, fantastic studio, no rush, no hassle, just a great time. And SO quiet. Hard to see how it could be improved.

I attended an art tutorial week at Manzac in August/September 2016. I was delighted with my accommodation and especially the comfortable bed as I have a bad back. It was also the coolest room, being north facing and downstairs. I know fans were thoughtfully available in other rooms. There was plenty of hot water and good shower. I was on... More

Just returned from my first painting holiday and it exceeded all my expectations. I don't know how it could have been any better. Giles and Louise are perfect hosts. I could repeat everything that previous reviewers have said but instead I just urge you to visit and see for yourself. Go for it - you won't regret it !

I think the title of my review speaks for itself. Giles & Louise greeted us like long-lost friends, and their usual hard work and attention to detail throughout ensured another memorable holiday. Gite accommodation is unsophisticated compared with a modern hotel, but the rooms at Manzac are comfortable, and have all the necessary facilities, including broadband. A continental breakfast was...

I visited here for a painting holiday. GIles And Louise are the perfect hosts and cannot do enough to please you, without being overwhelming. Louise provided us with some excellent meals including picnics, which were delivered to us when we were out for the day! My bedroom was very spacious and the gites are charming with plenty of room and... More

Oh my, I've found a wonderful retreat perched on a hill with stunning views. I really wanted to keep it a secret but then I would love others to enjoy the experience . I joined a painting workshop with an inspiring artist, Soraya French, we had a spacious studio to work in once we returned from well chosen painting locations.... More

We returned to Manzac this summer for the second time having had a wonderful holiday here 2 years ago. This time 16 of the family came and we rented all 3 gites for 2 weeks. The setting is fantastic and so was the weather - pushing 30 degrees almost every day! As soon as we arrived, we all felt relaxed... More

Another visit to Manzac and everything remains at the highest levels of service and quality. Giles and Louise operate their gites with continued enthusiasm, often going beyond what is expected. The gites themselves are clean, comfortable and roomy with excellent facilities and wonderful views across to the Pyrenees. The location is peaceful but close to local villages with their markets,...

Our second visit to Manzac after a gap of 5 years. The owners, Giles and Louise have created a wonderful venue for a family holiday. Perched on top of a hill in the beautiful unspoilt Ariege region of France, just south of Toulouse, they have built 3 fantastic gites from the remnants of the original farm buildings. All three are... More
