“Best retreat week of my adult life!”

people found this review helpful

I have spent a week here at La maison de la Roche recuperating during a long course of chemotherapy. I have found inner peace and tranquility staying in the beautiful "Secret Garden Cottage" with it's little private garden. Yes, even sat outside in November drawing, writing and reading. As it is apart from the house, I was able to bring my keyboard and play a little piano too. Many inspiring views to paint as well.
It is lovely and private though if I needed anything, the hostess Honor was always contactable, helpful and extremely warm and welcoming yet never intrusive.
Curled up on the sofa in the cosy sitting room eating wholesome food I had prepared on the range cooker in the well equipped kitchen, I watched some favourite films and did some crafts.
The rest of the gite was cosy, the pretty bedroom and the "rain" shower was comforting and I enjoyed the smooth pebble flooring in the bathroom massaging my tired feet after some invigorating walks around the village and local forests.
The Tapas Bar in the village, Chez Bembe, is run by a really friendly guy but if you want fine dining, there is a FAB restaurant on the corner Et Catamini .
All in all, I feel that I have chosen well to stay here on my own and I will most likely come back again with company or not. It suits either. A Place to enjoy during ANY season in my opinion.
I have fallen in love with Bob the Dog and Honor's daughter is delightful and well-mannered.
Thank you for such a special stay Maison de la Roche!

“very relaxing”
Reviewed October 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at the secret cottage for a week at the end of September into October. It was the perfect place for exploring this area of France. The cottage had been very tastefully renovated, with lovely finishing touches in the bedrooms and lounge. Good wifi and tv. The bathroom was modern with a great shower. The cottage has it's own outdoor space with table and chairs but we particularly enjoyed sitting in the large courtyard near the olive tree, with a view through the archway to the pool area. Very relaxing. We had a couple of warm days to make use of the lovely pool, but the weather was perfect for sightseeing. Maison de la Roche is so accessible from the motorway, we had a flight to Toulouse, so very easy to get to and also well situated for exploring. The smaller roads at this time of year were quiet which made getting about very easy. We visited most of the main sights, but a particular favourite was the scenery on the drive to Minerve. As self catering it is handy to have a large intermarche only a short drive away but there is also a boulangerie and small shop to walk to in the village. A nice touch was the very welcome cheese , wine, and bread to greet our arrival. Honor was a great host ,full of ideas for visits and things to do in the local area. Her knowledge and love of the place clearly shines through . From our initial enquiry through to return of refundable damage deposit, response from Honor was always prompt , which made booking easy. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would love to come back in the future. The only downside was after having flown we couldn't take back any of the wine , so may drive next time.

“Wonderful place to unwind ”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent a fabulous week at Maison de La Roche at the end of August, in the secret garden cottage. We chose the cottage as it had bedrooms upstairs and living space downstairs which suited us with a baby although perhaps the other gites would be better for those with young children. We loved the outside garden space for breakfast and barbecues. The pool is lovely although the weather was unseasonably cool while we were there. Honor couldn't have been more helpful or a better host and made it so easy for us with travel cot and toys provided. The gite is very well appointed and beautifully decorated. I can't wait to go back and wish I was there now!

“so relaxing”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent a week in the Secret Garden house and had the most wonderfully relaxing time.

As there were no other guests we had the sole use of the pool and the courtyard garden so felt very privileged!

The house had been stylishly restored, well fitted out and very comfortable. The bedroom was very elegant and the shower terrific.

Lots of lovely places to visit. Carcassonne (go early), Fontfroide(marvellous and superb wine), Minerve, Riboute, Lagrasse, Canal du Midi. We didn't go far afield but many more interesting places if you want a more energetic holiday. The station at Lesigne is a great help if you don't want to drive far.

Honor has created a very relaxing and welcoming environment which makes for a very enjoyable holiday.

“Stylish, well-equipped gite”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We enjoyed a lovely week at the charming Maison de la Roche. Honor, the owner, is a very welcoming and helpful host. The gites are stylishly fitted out and very spacious. The gardens and pool are lovely, with plenty of pool toys and a trampoline for children. There's also a playroom and everything you need for the beach. It's a short drive from Carcassonne airport (Ryanair) and is also well located for exploring the many historic towns and multiple vineyards. A great find.

What an amazing place to holiday! Just what we were looking for. The gites were beautiful and very well equipped. Honor was a brilliant host, we had such a lovely welcome and she recommend some great places to visit, and wine too! We enjoyed some great days out at various beaches, and carcassone was beautiful. A must if you stay here is a trip to the local boulongerie for daily croissants.
We really hope to return soon

“Excellent well equipped gite, fabulous area and fiendly host.”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Plenty of room for a family of 4 including two teenagers. The gite was well equiped including WiFi a must with teenagers! The area is well located, near historical sites, beaches and towns. Nearby supermarkets makes self-catering very easy.
The pool was wonderful to sink into at the end of a busy day.
Honor was a great host and most helpful. We all agreed we would like to return.
