Very Good

“A wonderful getaway home from home!”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2013

We had a thoroughly wonderful time at La Mariete and Rose and Terry are the perfect hosts. They made us feel welcome right from the start and the tour of the gite and extra bits of information and advice was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and they were on hand to help without being intrusive. The gite was beautifully clean and tidy with everything you need plus things that you didn't know you needed until you saw them! (Extra plug adaptor, teapot, etc). The swimming pool was fantastic after a long hot day touring the area, followed by a pastis on the loungers and a relaxed evening meal on the decking overlooking the lovely views of the vineyards and forests. Perfect and just wonderful.

“Small gite - large welcome”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2013

Terry and Rose have really thought out what holidaymakers need in the gite. Ideal for a couple who want a relaxing holiday in a great area. The gite is fully equipped to suit a British holidaymaker - including a kettle! Bed was very comfortable and large enough for the biggest of guests (actually two singles put together). Terry and Rose live on site - the gite backs on to their house - so were on hand for advice or problems (we had none), without being intrusive in any way. Esperaza is a good base from which to explore the foothills of the pyrenees, the coast (visit Guisson near Narbonne - a very pretty little seaside village) or Carcassonne itself.

“Good Times”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2012

The cottage is very convenient (only approx 1hr from Carcassonne airport) and the directions to cottage were really easy to follow even after no sleep - we didn't get lost once which is unusual! Rose and Terry were great hosts, very friendly and welcoming but also respecting your privacy. The cottage has everything that you need for your holiday, including perfect location - it's a 10 min walk from the village centre but feels very peaceful and secluded with great rural views across the valley. We were able to borrow good quality bikes which were ideal for exploring the many local villages and bars! Quillian, Coiza and Rouvenac are all easily reached without using main roads. There are plenty of places to go and eat - there are a few restaurants and bars in Esperaza (of which Moulles et Frites on a Friday night is a must), a couple of restaurants in Couiza, plenty in Quillian and a very nice restaurant with a terrace under vines in Rouvenac. Esperaza has a busseling market day on Sunday which is the biggest in the area. The walk to Rennes Le Chataeu is great, although best done on a cooler day as it is a good 1 1/2hrs and mainly up hill. If you have worked up a good appetite then the restaurant at the top is a welcome stop with good food and drink. The garden and pool when you get back is even more welcoming to cool off again!

“Relaxing, comfortable with friendly but unobtrusive hosts”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2012

The gite had all the facilities you could desire. The pool was an added bonus after a day out in glorious weather. Rose and Terry were friendly and helpful, they made us feel quite at home from the moment we arrived. Views from the garden were outstanding. The location was excellent as a base to visit so many wonderful places such as Carcassone, Rennes le Chateau, Gorge of Galamus and many others. We will certainly think of going back again to what ny wife called 'our litle haven'.

“Perfect place for a quiet, relaxing holiday.”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2011

Pre-booking and directions to La Mariete were very good indeed and a warm welcome from Rose and Terry. During our two week stay Rose and Terry were on hand if needed and offered the use of bikes and helpful directions to places of interest including Le Tour de France! The house was very clean and had everything a couple would need for a holiday. The wooden patio offers a pleasant place for outdoor meals and the swimming pool is ideal for a relaxing dip. There was an excellent folder with guides to tourist attractions and activities and a tv with English channels to keep up to date with news back in the UK. The view from the house is beautiful and the local area has plenty of signposted walks if you enjoy a stroll in the hilly countryside. Esperaza is a short walk down the hill from the house and is a relatively small town with a few restaurants. Ideal for those wishing a quieter holiday. We found the local people to be very helpful and friendly.

“Perfect for two”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2011

La Mariete exceeded all our expectations - in a beautiful location at the top of a hill with wonderful views ,and within walking distance of Esperaza. The gite is small but ideal for 2 people or a family with young children , - it is very well equipped with everything you need and more ! It provides a good base for exploring the area but a haven of peace to return to after a busy day ,with a lovely garden to relax in , and a pool to cool off in ! Rose and Terry are the perfect hosts - friendly and helpful without being intrusive. For us , it was the perfect place to stay.

“Ideal place to relax or explore”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2011

We've stayed here 3 years on the trot and tend to use it for relaxing -it is quiet and peaceful. The gite is very comfortable and has everything you need. The owners, Terry and Rose are very friendly and helpful. We love the privacy, you have your own terrace, garden and full use of the pool. If you want to explore, you dont have to go far. The surrounding area is lovely and there's plenty to do whether you want to walk or sight see. I wouldn't think twice about going back again.
