I have visited before and each time I love it more. The peace and quiet. The stunning views. The beautiful accommodation and the thoughtfulness of Karen and Nick to ensure your holiday goes smoothly and is everything you have asked for. Nothing is too much trouble for them. It really is a five star holiday. If you have time and inclination i would definitely recommend a relaxing and theraputic massage from Karen and a chat about holistic therapies she offers. That are a bonus and worth that extra sixth star from me!
Thank you both and hopefully see you next year.

We stayed here the third week in August with two teenagers - 14 & 18 who would normally have done a bit of moaning during our holidays, but they loved every minute of it, just like us. We hired a car and took day trips out to Andorra, Perpignan and Carcassonne.
The pool and barbeque were great and the kids loved the fact that there was wifi and Sky TV. The gite is very well equipped, with towels, TV and hifi, and all the kitchen equipment you need.
Not much in the village itself (no shops and one restaurant), but the wee town of Quillan is just 4 km down the road, which has lots of restaurants and a market twice a week.
Nick and Karen (and the dogs) were perfect hosts, making us all feel welcome and providing useful advice for us to get the best out of our trip and sightseeing. The apartment was spotlessly clean - we've stayed in top hotels which weren't as clean as this gite!
Karen runs an alternative therapy clinic and i would highly recommend it. I had arranged a treatment two hours after i got there and it was great. Very reasonable and very effective to chill out the whole holiday. http://www.bienetre-a-feuillesvertes.com/
The local scenery is beautiful and peaceful, though the local gorge is best experienced by a rafting experience!! Conveniently there is Rodeo Raft just across the road, the boys loved the trip and said it was well run and very enjoyable.
We would highly recommend this apartment and would definitely go back!
