Du calme et un gite très cosy
Partis à 2 familles, nous avons apprécié le charme de ce gîte, son agencement, l'état impeccable et le très bon niveau d'équipement de la cuisine. La propriétaire nous a bien prévenus que pour l'instant, il n'y avait pas le chauffage central mais avait prévu un radiateur électrique pour la chambre des enfants et nous a proposé du bois pour le poêle du salon. Et ce fut impeccable (nous avons eu une petite gelée dehors tout de même !). L'absence de 4 et 3 G, de wifi fut l'occasion de faire une vraie pause ! Le gîte dispose d'une cave, très pratique pour entreposer le bazar, les vélos et y faire dormir le chien... Très bon séjour !
Lovely property, great garden/outdoor space. Clean and homely
Communication from the host was excellent. Instructions to locate the property were easy to follow. The property itself was clean and homely and in a lovely spot close to large enough town for shops and bars and a lovely lake where the children loved spending warm afternoons.
Definitely worth a visit
Lovely clean home from home. Fantastic views. Peaceful location
We had a great holiday here. Well equipped and very clean house. Plenty of hot water for lots of people. Lots to do and see within a hours drive. Would recommend.
delightful weeks holiday
We had a lovely stay in Labrespy! The house is really charming, particularly sitting at the table out the front of the house. Really perfect there. There's also a garden with comfy seats looking across the picturesque valley. And the rooms themselves are all clean and clearly had thought put into them.
Debbie was friendly and helpful in advance. And the guidance notes when we arrived were really comprehensive so any questions were already answered. Practically it was useful staying in a 'lived in' house because there was everything you'd need (e.g. washing machine, games for the beach, books etc etc).
The house is close to a lovely lake for swimming 5 min drive away (or a good half hour walk - downhill on the way home! - I found cycling there was nicest) and you can drive to other lakes, rivers, swimming pools and the sea for other swimming. The nicest place to swim was in Lagrasse - a reasonable drive but absolutely perfect. The house is up in the hills so perfect if you prefer it a bit cooler than on the flat (still very hot!) and like to walk through the forests, do some lake swimming, cycle the hills etc.
Brilliant house to use as a base!
We stayed at this house for two weeks. We were a group of 7 made up of 2 young children and 5 adults, of whom 3 are retired.
It was perfect! The house is very comfortably furnished. There is enough space for everyone to relax and it has everything you need to have a great holiday. We even prepared (our version of) Cassoulet ( a local dish) using the small oven, so it is well equipped for cooking too. There is also a big range oven but we did not need to use it. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the kids loved sleeping in the loft, the room has been very cleverly designed, making it very appealing to kids. The views from the windows are fantastic, you really feel like you're in a different world: mountains, narrow lanes, big vegetable gardens, etc! The house is full of character and was clean and tidy. We charged all our electronic devices, boiled the kettle, showered, cooked food and never found the electricity or water supplies to be a problem, in fact it added to the charm.
There is a tiny but useful play frame 50m from the house as well as the little shop, selling a huge variety of stuff. They were only open in the morning and on certain days. Stock up on Milk, as you can't get fresh milk from Saturday to Tuesday very easily. Lots of places were shut on Sundays and Mondays.
We loved the area too. We weren't sure at first where to find the walks, but managed to figure it out in our second week. The walk to the lake through the woods, was lovely. The kids had a fantastic time swimming in the lake, it's very safe and never got too busy. The café there is a little expensive, but has easy meals and ice cream for the kids. We also found the pretty walk to Hautpool, which is truly a lovely place to visit. The village tavern in Hautpool has stunning views across to Mazamet. Mazamet is a lovely town, big enough with everything we needed. It has a great market on Tuesday mornings, but get there early-ish. It states that the market is from early till 2pm, however by 11:30 everyone starts to pack up. The E. Le Clerc supermarket made it easy to get everything we needed with our little French and as Debbie advised, we visited McDonalds quite a few times to use their free Wifi and enjoy a latte!
Loads to see in the area: Castres is very pretty for a morning excursion, Pic de Nor had amazing 360degree views, Minervois wine region towards Beziers, Carcassonne medieval town, to name but a few!
Thanks Debbie, we loved it!
