Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just returned from a wonderful break at A Sulana. The property itself had everything (and more) that you could possibly need and had the most wonderful views from the garden. Sue had thought of everything and a thoughtful welcome pack was unexpected and very much appreicated.. A very useful guide was provided which included information which we used daily and discovered beaufiful places I am certain we would not have found without the guide provided. The property was so peaceful and relaxed it really was the best medicine for us all. The pool and hot tub were amazing. Cannot recommend highly enough and would recommend and will certainly return. Thank you Sue x

“Homely and Welcoming”
Reviewed August 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed this holiday. The accommodation was pleasant and beautifully decorated with a room for the kids and another for me and my wife, both with showers. We shared an apartment which was one of three other guest gites which share the same plot as the owners house.
There was a hot tub and pool which had great views over the countryside and the free wifi meant that the kids were happy even when not occupied by days out.
In terms of the area there were lots to do. We drove to mountains for rafting, visited a local lake/park which had a range of activities and went to Montlieu which had some nice restaurants.
The owner Sue and her husband were very helpful and they even loaned us bikes to see the countryside. Loved it, thanks very much.

“Awesome Experience....Perfect”
Reviewed July 21, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were looking for somewhere that was self contained, had a pool and was within easy reach of Carcassonne. It also had to be within a lovely village setting and managed by fantastic people. A Sulana met with every requirement! The accommodation is set beautifully in renovated a barn and it is easy to see there is a lot of love & pride in the entire property. We so enjoyed we want to go back and try our hands at this line of work, An inspiration.

“Excellent hospitality”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Reading the other reviews says it all. I would totally endorse - Sue is extremely helpful and aims to help you get the most from your holiday, Its wonderfully quiet, the boulangerie is fantastic, not far to Montolieu and Saissac, 20 mins from the airport at Carcassonne. Good base for the Black Mountains, the Corbieres, the Minervois and the foothills of the Pyrenees.

“Peace, quiet, and beauty”
Reviewed February 11, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

It is hard to find a more perfect place if you love French food, sunshine and lovely people. Moussoulens is a little French village not very far from the southern border with Spain; nestled on the southern shoulders of the Black Mountains in an enchanting historical wine-growing area.

The landlady (Sue) is one of those people that you cannot help but love. Very kind, hospitable but yet never intrusive. She makes you feel that Moussoulens is your home from home. The people of the region make you feel welcome too, even if you don't speak much French. Sue kindly introduced us to a lovely French lady (Laurence) who helped and encouraged us to speak better French.

The gites are immaculately clean and beautifully rustic. The view from the south-facing patio is a broad vista of the Pyrenees mountains with snow capped peaks. Peace, quiet, and beauty. The village itself is a truffle and wine centre with food and drink to die for. So much to see and do in the vicinity: the seasonal truffle market at Moussoulens itself, north at Revel, the medieval castle at Carcassonne, Barcelona a few hours south across the Spanish border. The list goes on.

Recommendation: go!

“Immaculate, stylish gite, set in a lovely village.”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We arrived to a warm welcome from Sue the owner. During our stay Sue offered advice and help such as booking a restaurant and a taxi for us. Thank you, Sue.
The gite is immaculate and is artistically designed with coordinated furnishings. It has everything which is needed including a welcome 'starter pack'. The pool and hot tub are set in beautiful gardens.
The location is idyllic with a good local restaurant and an excellent patisserie. Bikes to explore the surrounding area, can be borrowed from Sue.
The stay was very relaxing and it is definitely a place that we would recommend.

“Stylish relaxing retreat.”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Difficult to know what to write here that has not already been written by other reviewers .A beautiful stylish apartment that comfortably slept myself and friends .Beautiful gardens , great pool, fantastic sitting in the Hot tub viewing the Pyrenees with a good glass of Rose.Moussselens great ,quiet little village with basic amenities and well situated for those who wish to travel further afield including the Coast .Literally 15 minutes from the airport ,drop your bags and chill.The real treasure of les Bergeries du Carbides however is the owner Susan .For someone who has not visited the Languedoc before her encyclopaedic knowledge of the area and its restaurants was invaluable .She really makes one feel welcome to such an extent that we felt more like House guests than visiting tourists.
