After a very warm welcome we shared a bottle of cold white wine with the owners Clark and Keith. We stayed for three wonderful weeks in this delightful gite. With their help and suggestions we visited some memorable places and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

“A Relaxing holiday in a wonderful small town”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have, only two days ago returned from a one week holiday at Mimi's Gite which wasn't long enough.

We knew from the photos that the Gite, garden and pool were going to be spectacular but we were all blown away by it's beauty both inside and out. All the rooms were immaculate and the Gite was very well equiped with everything one would need including many books, an extensive range of DVDs, coolboxes - I could go on! The garden is beautifully kept, much like a cottage garden and a good sized swimming pool which was also immaculate.

The owners, Clark and Keith were wonderful hosts and always on hand for advice and suggestions of local places of interests and restaurants.

Our first night in L'isle en Dodon Keith and Clark took us to the local Annual Fete in aid of the town's Pompiers. Hundreds of local people attended as well as a traditional local band, 'Banda Los Novillos' who were excellent especially the Sousaphone player! It was lovely to be in amongst the locals who were all very friendly.

There are many local markets, Samatan being the biggest on a Monday where you could by anything and everything, quite an eye opener! There is a local swimming lake with a sandy beach and undercover picnic area. Our favourite village that we visited was Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges and it's 13th Century Cathedral on a hill, the village has shops and restaurants and at the bottom of the hill on a Friday there is a small market.

We definately want to return to L'isle en Dodon but only if we can stay at Mimi's Gite with Clark and Keith as our hosts!

Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

“Wonderful and relaxing”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Mimi's Gite for the last week of June 2015.

The owners, Clark and Keith, were very welcoming, warm and friendly. We really appreciated the basket of goodies that were provided for us on arrival, a lovely touch - thank you.

The Gite, pool and hot tub were wonderful. We spent many hours relaxing and making full use of the facilities - including admiring the array of flowers and plants.

Both Clark and Keith are very knowledgeable on the surrounding areas, and can provide helpful advice on places to visit.

We arrived as strangers. When we left we felt like we had made good friends.

Would we stay again? Most definately!!

“Wonderful and relaxing stay - the perfect base for our vacation”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Mimi's gite with our three teens and it was the perfect place for us - it's in a great location from which we were able to explore nearby villages, cities & historical sites and visit with friends in Auch. And on those days where everyone was tired, it was a great place to relax. The backyard is a wonderful little oasis where we could just hang out, eat dinner, play in the pool (which was always a perfect temperature - cool enough to be refreshing but not too cold!), or enjoy the hot tub. We also enjoyed walking to the little shops and cafes nearby (and even stumbled on a great little art show near the town hall!). The kitchen was well equipped, the rooms/beds were clean and comfortable, and it was great to have use of a washer/dryer. Clark and Keith gave us a warm welcome on the first night and were available throughout our stay for advice about the area, which was much appreciated! Mimi's gite suited our needs perfectly and we would love to return for another visit! Highly recommended!!

“Mimi's gite - a place to recommend”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have spent a week in April Mimi's Gite and enjoyed every single moment there. Starting with the beautiful, charming interior, via the perfect garden and last but defintely not least the very warm welcome of the hosts, Clark and Keith, who have not only been very helpful but also made us feel welcome every single moment. The house is equipped with everything you might need and even a bit more.
Unfortunately April is not the very best time to fully benefit from the outdoor pool, however our boys loved to test the water and later enjoyed warming up again in the hot pot.
We would love to come back soon!
