“A little piece of heaven!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This was our first trip to this part of France. We were taking my elderly Mother who has mobility problems (86 years old) and our teenage son (aged 14) so it felt a risky business! However, we need not have worried....we had the most perfect holiday! The location was amazing, both beautiful and tranquil. Stunning scenery in authentic rural France.
The Gite we stayed in was lovely, being comfortable and well equipped. Whilst there was no air conditioning, we genuinely didn't miss it as the gite is cool due to solid stone walls. The pool is gorgeous and located directly outside the gites (there are only two gites).
Our hosts, Anais and Luis were fabulous people,and their daughters Emma (whom George readily bonded with) and little Deva, who constantly delighted and amused us, made the holiday! Anais and Luis were accomodating, informative about all there is to do / see and wonderfully friendly (we consider we have made life long friends). Because they spoke great English (when we could speak little French, apart from my Mother), communication was easy. They invited us for Pizza night when they prepared incredible pizzas in their authentic bread oven...delicious!
We bought great homemade wine at great prices from them and you can order meals prepared with their own fresh produce which we can testify were fabulous.
Because there were no steps for my Mother to contend with, she coped well, using her rollater to get around.
Having a car is a must to visit local towns / villages and a visit to historic Carcassone is well worth a day out. Because we loved the gite and surroundings so much, we did not venture out as much as we would have expected to. There is so much more to explore for us next year....if we can drag ourselves away from Gites la borde for a day!
We have never felt so relaxed and truly rested as we did after this holiday. We booked immediately for two weeks next year and cannot wait to return! Cannot recommend Gites la Borde highly enough.

“So good that we have booked it again for next year!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Le Grenier a Foin offers excellent accommodation either for just a couple or a family. It is fully equipped with everything you need and is very comfortable and spacious with 2 bathrooms for 2 bedrooms and a lovely sitting room overlooking the fields and the swimming pool. I really enjoyed being able to eat out on our nice patio for every single meal.
There are also lots of areas around the place for you to sit out, sunbathe and simply relax. The swimming pool is great and the games rooms provides lots to do for kids and adults alike!
The location itself is amazing, just outside a lovely little village, surrounded by fields and with the mountains in the distance. We have never felt so relaxed after our holiday and never felt the need to "have to do something" every day although we did visit Castelnaudary, Toulouse, Mirepoix, Limoux amongst other places.
This is also paradise for animal lovers as Anais and Luis have donkeys, sheep, goats, cats, dogs and a large poultry den. We were also lucky to see a beautiful barn owl every morning and all sorts of wildlife native to the area.
In a nutshell, this was the best gite we have ever stayed in in many years holidaying in France, so good we have already rebooked it for next year!
