2 bedroom holiday home with shared pool in the South of France
October 2019

We stayed at the domaine 8 years ago and vowed to come back. Since our first visit, Julian and Nigel, who are perfect hosts, have made numerous improvements to the domaine, including the refit of L'Ostalet into a very well appointed gites. The surrounding area is as beautiful as ever with a number of lovely small towns and villages in east reach, not to mention the beautiful countryside with the Canal du Midi to the North and the Pyrenees to the South. We'll be back!

3 bedroom South of France holiday home to rent
August 2019

An immaculately presented property with all the comforts of home and more besides. A tranquil location at the end of a village overlooking vineyards, though only a short stroll to a main line train station where you can be whisked into Carcassonne for the cost of one Euro! Although close to the station we never heard the trains. The village has a small cafe/restaurant/bar adjoining a small general store where fresh bread and vegetables can be purchased along with a small selection of household items. The house has generously proportioned rooms and is well suited to family holidays with its three double bedrooms with ample storage space. Although we did not meet the owner, his Sister and her husband live next door and manage the property for him. Monique and Philippe are on hand to help and assist you in getting the maximum enjoyment out of your stay but will not intrude on your privacy. The property has everything you need including all mod cons and it is well maintained, clean and loved. With regard to the location, the property is ideally situated to explore the Cathar region with Carcassonne being just a short drive away. The countryside is beautiful and it is a pleasure to drive around the area. There is so much to offer the holiday maker. History in abundance with many Chateaus, Castles, churches, beautiful countryside in which to drive, walk, or cycle. A well equipped modern house with good size garden. Slide and swings for the children and a securely locked and alarmed pool for the exclusive use of the property. We spent many afternoons and early evenings reading by the pool in the peaceful setting. A truly relaxing and enjoyable time. This really is a little gem.

3 bedroom farm house rental in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France
August 2019

We had a fabulous stay at this property, it exceeded expectation as the photo's don't do it justice. The property is 'better in the flesh'. Furnished to a high specification made for a comfortable stay and we could easliy have stayed for longer. Wifi coverage good which was important for our teenage children! Fully equipped kitchen and UK satellite television if you needed it. Plenty of space and with all of the facilities you need to make your stay stress free and without any hassle. An excellent games room with pool table and an array of bikes to cycle the very quiet lanes in the vicinity. Very peaceful location but never far from the village for your essentials such as the bakery, pharmacy and butcher etc. The local bistro St.Pierre has very friendly locals who will talk to you and are full of good advice should you need it. A fair number are British who now live in the area and it is very easy to see why. A relaxed pace of life in a very nice location. However please do not take my word for it and try it for yourself. I would highly recommend a stay at this traditional style farmhouse. Communication with Rachel, the owner, was first class who replied to my many questions posed in advance of our stay very quickly and with a host of information to help us.

3 bedroom farm house rental in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France
August 2019

Wonderful spacious, charming house with everything which we could have wished for provided, from bicycles and a well equipped games room, to quality kitchenware and a thoughtful welcome pack awaiting our arrival (the chilled rosé was particularly appreciated!) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt as if we were staying in a friend's well-appointed, elegant home, rather than in an anonymous holiday let. Would have no hesitation in recommending l'Échapée Douce for anyone looking for a perfect blend of rural tranquillity, elegant surroundings, with plenty of day trip opportunities (including the beaches).

4 bedroom Nouvelle-Aquitaine holiday home rental with private pool
May 2019

Our second stay at this little piece of paradise; we stayed with non-fishers as well this time and they enjoyed walking in the area, and the piece and tranquility at the property itself. The property is ideal for people with mobility issues, as it is spacious, and has downstairs bedroom, and large wet-room style ground floor bathroom too. The property is well maintained and should you encounter any problems, Shane or Rula are round in a jiffy to help. They are soo attentive, but without being intrusive - the perfect hosts. Cant wait to go back again.

4 bedroom Nouvelle-Aquitaine holiday home rental with private pool
April 2019

Really cant begin to say how much we enjoyed our holiday. Fishing was fantastic. with 73 fish caught in total and the biggest being 30lb. The host's Shane and Rula are two genuinely lovely people, nothing is too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend this property which is immaculately clean and the kitchen is equipped with everything you'd ever need. If you just want to fly in but also want to fish then, no worries full equipment is available at very reasonable cost
