“Incredible - surpassed expectations!”
Reviewed September 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed at Le Couvent at the start of August with my husband and 2 children (5 and 3) and we had an incredible time. The house is jaw-droppingly beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. The pool is amazing and fully equipped with lots of fun things for the kids. The location is perfect - walking distance to the quaint town of Tuchan, and just a minute's walk from the beautiful backdrop of sweeping vineyards. The only problem was that a week was not long enough as there's so much to explore.

Sam, the owner, was super helpful - always on hand for help and advise when needed. Thank you once again.

Could not recommend this property highly enough!

“Delightful, stylish, well equipped and homely”
Reviewed September 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved staying here. Very private but also in the town (which is very cute). Just a 1 min walk to the boulangerie (choice of two) and a lovely capsite (free entry, great food, fun bar, nice pool).

Sam (the owner) was incredibly helpful, informative and friendly.

“perfect week”
Reviewed August 27, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My Family, friends and I experienced a perfect week at Sam's house.
The location was wonderful (as it is shown in the pictures). It was spacious, clean, very quiet and very well equiped.
kids enjoyed a lot the swymming pool from where we had a beautiful view of the country side.
Sam was also very kind and helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone.

“Fantastic House in wonderful friendly village”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Had a great week at Le Couvent. Sam was very helpful from first contact and always available for any questions we had. The house offers lots of space and is very private. Pool is amazing, beautiful backdrop and was very welcome in the hot weather.

The village itself is charming and very friendly. There are two small supermarkets and the SPAR is very well stocked and catered for most of our needs. Charming boulangerie and beautiful play area for younger children in the shaded village square. There is a tourist walking trail around the village which was the perfect way to spend a few hours, the signs are in English and French and we all enjoyed exploring and learning about the place we were staying in.

Beautiful area and home.

“Just stunning!”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a find, a stunning house in a beautiful and unspoilt part of France. The internal decoration of the house is so chic with every room having it's own unique style. The house had so much character and was so much larger than we anticipated, real value for money.

We were fortunate enough to meet the owner when we stayed at the villa and she couldn't have been more helpful.

We loved every minute of our stay there and would have no hesitation in recomending this villa.

“A Complete Gem in the Heart of the Corbieres”
Reviewed October 15, 2014 for a stay in March 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This house is a much loved, often revisited centre for my fascination with The Cathar History.

I always visit off season when the weather is cooler, perfect for climbing the heights of the Cathar Castle locations and exploring the local wine growing region. Mont Tauch, the local cave, is within walking distance in the village..

Last year I also visited Les Angles. a two hour stunning drive into the Pyrenees past The Canigou . Perfect for Family skiing. We also stopped at Villefranche-de-Conflent the wonderful UNESCO World Heritage site.

This region really is magical during the off peak season. The crowds are gone and
you can get a taste of real France.

Anyone with a fascination with Kate Mosse books will also be in for a treat . Rennes Le Chateau and Le Bains and of Carcassonne are all within spitting distance.

I will definitely be returning.

Thank You! A complete gem !!
