From the moment we arrived at Maison de la Roche in the village of Ferrals les Corbieres we knew we would love it. Honor welcomed us warmly, we left our bags and went off for lunch. The gites are perfect; we had the secret cottage and enjoyed our own private outdoor space. The pool was relaxing. The village; traditionally French with a walkable boulangerie and restaurant/bar. We enjoyed cycling, villages, beaches and still have more to see and do. We will most certainly love to return ( maybe without teenagers in tow ) for a little bit more of real France.
These gites are amazing! They are perfect for families of all ages and are modern and clean. The village shops are close by and morning croissants from the local boulangerie are not to be missed! The gites have all the facilities you will need for your holiday and are within easy driving distance of many beautiful places to visit. The owner, Honor, is very friendly and offers lots of ideas for days/evenings out. Nothing is too much trouble for Honor, she really goes out of her way to make sure you enjoy your holiday. The pool is so relaxing and quiet to sit around after a day out and about. We will definitely return in the future!
Overlooking a beautiful courtyard gite 2 is very well equipped with good quality furniture, power shower, comfortable beds and an ancient tiled floor. There's a secluded pool nearby and the friendly owner lives on site. She is full of great tips and advice on places to visit locally - secret river swimming spots, markets, restaurants and beaches. The secluded set of three gites are five minutes walk from a bakers and two restaurants (one smart, one basic, but v good). We will return.
We just spent 10 days at Maison de la Roche in one of the gites. The site itself was really nicely presented and had everything we needed including picnic blankets and cooler bags for our days out.
On site there is a lovely secluded pool with a number of floats, rubber rings and pool toys for the kids as well as a trampoline. The property is completely secure so the kids can play without you having to watch them every minute.
The gates are just a short walk from the centre of the village where there is a boulangerie for croissants and baguettes in the morning as well as a couple of restaurants. We tried the restaurant 'Bembe' a couple of times and the food was excellent.
The owner of the site, Honor, lives on site with her lovely dog, Bob, and couldn't have been more helpful with restaurant bookings, arranging wine tasting and tapas at the gite and making recommendations for places to go.
The property is well located for the supermarket, just a 5 minute drive away, local french markets in the nearby town and also for loads of activities, all within 30 - 60 minutes drive. We managed to fit in trips to the beach at Gruissan, a visit to Carcassone, lunch in Minerve, hiring bikes and cycling along the Canal du Midi at Homps, swimming in the beautiful river at Ribaute, a day out at the Lac du Cavayere near Carcassone where there are 2 beaches, tree top adventures (a very reasonable Eur7 for my 5 year old son who spent 3 hours in there) and a water park with giant inflatables (think Wipeout!), a wander around the Abbey and medieval village at Lagrasse, a visit to the dinosaur museum and canoeing at Puichéric.
We also visited the local markets and were lucky enough to go along to the village Bastille Day celebrations. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend it.
We had a great week here in a superb cottage between Carcassonne and Narbonne. The cottage was very well equipped and has lots of character. There's also a lovely pool in a beautiful setting. We appreciated being able to walk to the bakery and also 2 very good restaurants in the village. There's loads to do in the surrounding area and the owner, Honor, was extremely helpful. We had a great night out at the village bastille day celebrations - an added bonus!!
We have not long returned from this wonderful Gite and we would love to return.
The location is beautiful, in the middle of everything so its only a short drive to visit some lovely places. The gite we stayed in was really lovely and perfect for our 11 month old. This combined with the pool and setting meant we actually got to have a relaxing holiday even though we had a young child.
Honor and Holly (and Bob) were lovely hosts and so helpful (we even got a babysitter one night). My husband said the cycling was amazing.
Everything you need for a family holiday!
We had a fabulous family holiday here, lots to do but also a great place to relax by the lovely pool (which I had to myself most of the time). Lots of activities in the local area and Honor has made sure that the welcome pack has load of info on places to go and restaurants to eat at. Could have easily stayed another week to fit more things in!
Accommodation was lovely and spacious with everything you needed, including a room full of toys for our little one. Honor is always happy to help with suggestions and any requests and the gift of wine, bread and cheese on arrival is a lovely touch and so welcoming.
Can't wait to return!
