We'd stayed a few days the last two years in the single letting room, which is situated in the lower ground floor of the main house. This year we took son, his wife and their 18 month son as well. They stayed in the gite and as always we stayed in the single room. This worked out very well as we weren't under each other's feet but were able to share the pool and the extra kitchen they've put in so we could be totally self-catering. It's the pool area that helps make this one of the best places we've ever stayed - it's very spacious and you can spend all day there. Paul and Sue have put a lot of effort in and it would be hard to imagine that many similar places could be as good. They're also very good hosts giving a level of discreet attention that's reminiscent of the best restaurants, which is actually their background. Lauzerte seems relatively unknown to Brits - surprisingly as it's beautiful country. There's a few man-made lakes which are good to visit with children as they have safe beaches and lots of things for them to do. This was a pretty near-perfect visit and we're probably going back next year.
