“Sit Bob! Good Boy!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Having stayed at Maison de la Roche twice before in 2009 and 2010, we knew that after 5 years, things might have changed. They had, well sort of.....Holly had been transformed from a little girl into a beautiful young lady and Bob had mellowed considerably despite having grown to the size of a small horse. Honor, on the other hand hadn't changed a bit. She's still the most kind, generous and fun-loving host you could wish for.

The difference this time around was that as well as visiting a few other towns and villages we hadn't been to before like Mirepoix and Foix, or spending the day canoeing in Roquebrun or at the Aqua Park at Lac de la Cavayere, the biggest thrill was getting to spend time with Honor and Holly, getting to know a bit more about what life in Ferrals is like for them and meeting some of their close friends, house guests and also those many colourful characters in the wider community.

I should also mention that this will be our last trip to Maison de la Roche....as gite guests that is. It's the 'big house' for us from now on apparently especially now that Bob and I have gained a mutual respect (it's a long story!).

So I guess this is not so much a travel review as a personal testament to a dear, dear friend. It's now hard to imagine a July or August without her. If you want a holiday you won't forget and a chance to make a friend for life then what's stopping you?

“Brilliantly situated in an area with so much to see and do”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I had one of our best ever holidays in France staying in Upper Gite 2 for two weeks at the end of June..The gite was very light and airy and the swimming pool is a great place to relax at the end of a busy day.
Maison de la Roche is brilliantly situated- 5 minutes from the motorway and main roads but in a very quiet village.(It's lovely to start the day with a 5 min walk to the local boulangerie for fantastic croissants )
It's very easy to get to lots of different towns, visitor attractions, very varied countryside, the coast and the Canal de Midi. ( Honor has created a fantastic information pack in the Gite with very helpful and interesting advice on places to go and what to do and see in this very varied area.)
My husband had great service from a local bike hire company "Melo Velo" ( recommended by Honor ) who delivered and picked up a bike he hired for 10 days -great rides in this area of France.

“Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful holiday at Maison de la Roche! The gite was beautiful and equipped with everything we could need. (We needn't have bothered taking toys for our daughter as there was a play room full of toys). It has been beautifully crafted so that many of the original features have been retained and new parts have been beautifully crafted from wood.

The site was perfect as it provided a variety of lovely shaded areas to sit and lounge and the layout meant you could have as much privacy or social interaction as you wanted. The gated entrance meant we could safely let our daughter wonder round the site on her own, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

It was a great base for exploring the local area and there was a really useful guide of many of the local amenities, attractions and restaurants which made planning what to do much easier. Having said that, the wonderful pool meant 'rest days' were equally fun.

All in all I can't recommend this place highly enough. We had a truly wonderful holiday and would love to go back.

“Everything you imagine from an escape to the south of France”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at MdlR and already feel like jumping on a plane to return. the gite itself is simple and full of character - the grounds offer a variety of secluded spots, a lovely pool and even a trampoline which was a hit with our kids. It's easy to achieve a perfect balance of privacy while being sociable with other guests. A visit to MdlR is perfect for all ages - little ones have a play room, pool and perfect beaches; energetic teenagers can bike, kite surf and even quad bike, those of other persuasions have historic villages, castles, wine tasting and cool rivers for a dip or a fish

All in all would recommend to anyone

“We love Maison de la Roche”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our second visit and we will be coming back for a third next year.

We fly in to any of the local airports, and hang by the pool for a the morning before various excursions in the afternoon. My 13 year old son and 11 year old daughter love it.

We cannot recommend it enough.

“Perfect child friendly honeymoon!”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Maison De La Roche for our honeymoon, we had our 2 year old with us and it couldn't have been easier. Honor is extremely helpful and a lovely lady, she is on hand when ever you need her but you don't feel you are staying on someone elses property, its the perfect balance. The gite was beautifully decorated, with lots of space and everything you could need. The guide book put together by Honor has so much information, it could keep you busy for weeks. We went having done minimal research of the area so we relied on it daily. The bed was super comfy and the view out the window was bliss, it was difficult to get up some days but the amount of lovely places to visit kept us going out visiting lots of different places. We highly recommend taking the drive to Collioure, it has a lovely beach and beautiful little town to walk around with some amazing food!

The pool area is beautiful with plenty of sun comfy loungers, the trampoline was a firm favourite of our little boy's! There is a room full of toys, which also kept him busy all holiday. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect toddler friendly holiday.

We will be back one day as there is much more to do!

“Bliss”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Maison de la Roche is an absolutely perfect place to stay. Honor, our host is extremely welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The gites are beautiful and very well equipped. Beautiful pool area too. An informative folder in the gites has loads of information of interesting places to visit which can keep you busy for weeks so obviously we will have to return again!!!!
