“AMAZING FAMILY MEMORIES MADE!!”
Reviewed 5 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you... We had a wonderful time at this beautifully French house. The huge dining tables both inside and out are fantastic and the pizza oven was an absolute treat! My family will be talking about those pizzas for years to come. The pool is a massive bonus and the kids loved it being so close to where the prepping and cooking action was taking place. The house itself is stunningly typical and everything I wanted it to be. Tastefully decorated, the rooms are spacious and quaint at the same time. There are plenty of toilets and showers etc. The kitchen is big enough for every one to chip in with the cooking and clear up. The outside washing and drying area is a great idea, for all the costumes etc. The village is as pretty as a picture and all the people we encountered on our evening stroll were very friendly. We will definitely be booking again. My favorite part of France xx

“Beautiful, characterful holiday”
Reviewed June 12, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

I stayed here with my children and some friends for 5 days in May. We had a superb stay. The house is very spacious and there was more than enough room for us both indoors and outdoors. The kitchen had plenty of glasses, plates etc and the outdoor eating area was magnificent. We had some great BBQ's and even used the pizza oven one evening! The pool is beautifully kept and maintained with lots space for loungers as well as shaded areas. The village itself is very peaceful and I would say car hire is a must.

Peter and Dominique were excellent hosts, with nothing being too much trouble. I would definitely return.

“Fabulous holiday destination”
Reviewed June 11, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

After a recent 2 week vacation to this beautiful part of the world,I highly recommend it as a perfect place to unwind.
The house is very clean,spacious and well equipped.The courtyard and pool area are without doubt an extra bonus, especially with us having 2 young children in our company. This space also consists of a beautiful barbeque area(and pizza oven) which we made great use of.
This region has such spectacular and rugged scenery, with so much to offer, whether you choose to stay local for the day or go for a drive. There are lots of amazing walking routes close by, and a climb to the top of one of the many Corbierres hills to absorb the sunset is a must! The children loved it!
We also spent our time exploring ancient ruins, having a dip at a couple of waterfalls and days at the beach.
Peter and Dominique are such warm and friendly hosts, and we valued their knowledge and advise on the many things to see and do.
We can gladly say it will be a memorable holiday, and we are looking forward to returning in the near future to this hidden gem!

“a beautiful stay- we're already looking at dates for next year!!!!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for a week in August at Maison de la Fontaine with a family group and had the most wonderful time. When we arrived Dominique was there to welcome us and provided us with lots of helpful local information. The house itself is great! The kitchen was massive and really well equipped which was great for our family (we are big foodies who love to cook!). The bedrooms are spacious and light and somehow despite the 30 plus degree heat were really cool in the evenings which meant we all slept well. The courtyard garden was absolutely perfect. Lots of seating space for us all and we loved the pool. I must mention the built in BBQ and pizza oven which we made the most of! We are already discussing when we can all come again!

A few tips: ask for directions for the mussels and oyster shops in leucate and go there to buy some amazing mussels.
Go to the cave in the village for one of their tapas nights. You have to book in advance but this is a great excuse to sample some of the wine which is excellent and very cheap! You will not be disappointed.

All 9 of us had an excellent stay. The facilities were of a high standard. Lovely picturesque hamlet, very quiet and relaxing. Good base for exploring the region and would recommend the property to amyone. Dominique was extremely helpful and a pleasure to share a glass of wine with.

“Everything we wanted or needed”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

It's hard to fault this place. Myself and my partners family wanted somewhere 8 of us could stay under one roof, but a place with a view! This place had it all!
On arrival at Maison de la Fontaine, we were greeted by Dominique who made us feel instantly welcome. She was able to answer all our questions both regarding the Villa and the surrounding areas. She recommended some beautiful places to visit that would be suitable for our party. Dominique was also happy to answer any queries we had throughout our stay and was only happy to help.
The villa itself was v spacious and the pool and outdoor space was perfect for the days we just wanted to relax at the villa. The villa was equipped with a fully working kitchen and family bathroom aswell as en suite bedrooms for the adults. It was the little extras that really made it home from home I.e. The complimentary bottle of wine and homemade jam and the extra blankets incase it got chilly during the evenings, which it didn't but who can predict European weather?!
Set in a quaint traditional French village, this villa has it all, the views, beautiful surroundings, fantastic facilities and a v welcoming owner. I have recommended it to all our family and friends and hope to visit again in the near future.

“Hightlight for us in 2013, definitely going back!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Stayed at Maison de la fontaine with 3 small children aged 7, 5 and 2. The gite is located in the lovely landscape of the Corbieres in a quiet village and the weather was fantastic. We made full use of the pool which was ideal to keep our children happy. The area is truly beautiful with stunning , very safe beaches. The gite is very well appointed , spacious and there is a real attention to detail. Peter and Dominique were fantastic hosts and always on hand for advice on what to visit. The home made jam and local wine were a nice touch. Dominique tried to teach the kids a few French phrases and gave us plenty of tips on the best places to visit for a family. We had a great time and look forward to returning very soon.
