“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed September 19, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Fabulous holiday Andrea and Mark are amazing hosts - they had even done a shop for us which we had given a list of requirements before we arrived - we were collected from the airport - the gite is gorgeous with wonderful homely touches all around. The views across the lake are idyllic, lots of vineyards to visit, on our hosts recommendation we visited the village of Mirepoix and fell in love with it. We all loved the pool and table tennis, lovely outdoor cooking and eating areas. Carcasonne is lovely and the beach is only an hour away. Would love to come back in the winter and light the big wood burners I bets it's super cosy! Highly recommended - well done x

“Maison Tranquille”
Reviewed September 15, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A very well-appointed and spacious gite in the heart of the French countryside which, delightfully, lives up to its name 'Tranquille'. Small, quintessentially-French, towns are nearby for provisions and a host of activities but, with a secluded swimming pool, stunning terrace views, space within and without for sitting in groups or alone PLUS a lake below for charming morning/evening strolling, this is a wonderful place for just 'sitting and thinking'. We enjoyed a very relaxed week and felt well provided for by Mark and Andrea. We would definitely recommend this lovely retreat for those seeking peace.

“Wonderful Place to Stay”
Reviewed September 3, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Maison Tranquil is in a beautiful, quiet, calming setting. The house is spacious and elegant, it was all that you would imagine a french country house to be. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We had three catered meals which were excellent in terms of the food and value for money. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with utensils, crockery etc infact everything we needed was provided including extra bottles of wine to buy in case we ran out! The outside area provide places to sit in the sun and shade, all overlooking the fabulous view.
