We have taken many holidays in different parts of France over the years, and have stayed in various different gîtes. In June 2012 we took our dog Monty down to the Midi-Pyrenees for a two week holiday. We arrived at Faysselle Holiday Cottages to be warmly welcomed by Judy & Tom (and of course their two lovely golden retrievers Lizzie & Bingley). The gîte we stayed in "Grand Couchant" was perfect for us and our dog and had everything we could possibly need for a self-catering holiday. A real home from home. We had great plans prior to our arrival and decided that we were going to go out to restaurants in the evenings for meals, but it was in such a wonderful setting with a tranquil outlook that we stayed in and cooked on the BBQ for the duration of our stay! It was just too good to leave. Tom & Judy were the most hospitable people you could every hope to meet and had an endless knowledge of local information which came in useful. Lizzie and Bingley were adorable and came calling every morning. We like to think it was our magnetic personality that drew them over each time, but I think they were really coming to see our dog! Faysselle is perfectly located for those wishing to be away from the hustle and bustle of everyday French life, but within driving distance of some of the most spectacular places to explore. If you are looking for a holiday in France and have read this review.....don't look any further....book now, you will not be disappointed!
