“We'll be back!”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

My parents and I stayed for a week in the two bed apartment of Gite de Cathares. The flat itself was very spacious and well equipped with everything we needed – the computer available to use in the flat with free internet connection also came in handy. The best thing about the flat for me was the wonderful river views – I loved getting up and making fresh coffee - then to the window to check on any river activity. At night too, the river flowed gently and glistened as the sun set….ahhh take me back! We were not familiar with the area, but soon discovered that we were perfectly positioned to discover the amazing South West of France! Highlights for us include; wine tasting in Maury, a dip in the thermal spa of Rennes les bains, swimming in the lake at Arques a short drive or cycle from the flat, a day trip to the picturesque seaside town of Collioure, the Cahors castles and climbing the Bugerach mountain with the most impressive views – the list could go on! There’s actually a wonderful guide to the area in the welcome pack; which lists all the recommended sites and things to do – we pretty much ticked off the list and would recommend each one! Food – we ate so well! Again the flat is located within easy reach of wonderful fresh produce; from the small bakery around the corner to the impressive Sunday market at Esperaza. As a foodie it was great to be able to get the freshest ingredients and to be able to create some wonderful meals back at the flat. There are some great restaurants too, but for us it was great to be able to cook together and to sit around the big family sized table. It’s definitely somewhere we’d go back to – there are still lots to discover, and lots that we’d go back and do all over again!

“Hired a couple of the apartments out with a group of friends and really enjoyed our stay here”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2012

Apartments were spacious, well equipped and good value for money. Having a computer with internet access in each appt was great, as the owner has spent a lot of time putting detailed information about the local area on the website along with map locations etc. There were also maps, a local guide from the Lonely planet and a top tips guide from the owner – all really helped us explore the area which we loved! It’s stunning, and will definitely go back to! Only complaint would be that one of the apartments was a little minimalistic on furniture, not that we needed any more than was there.

“A perfect family holiday”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2011

We rented out all three flats for a holiday with our extended family. It was perfect for such a large crowd as all flats were accessible from the main hall and stairs. Each floor was beautifully decorated and furnished, the beds were comfy, and the kitchen facilities were excellent. We particularly valued the massive dining area in the first floor flat and the terrace outside, both of which could accommodate our large party of 17. The gite is well-sited in the centre of Couiza with pretty views across the river. Local shops were excellent. Of particular note are the markets twice a week with excellent veg and meat stalls, and the Huit a Huit which includes an amazing bakery and pattisserie. We should also mention the very friendly cafe where we watched the early matches of the Rugby World Cup - handshakes and free drinks all round for each successful try! Further afield the area has a lot to offer for all age groups. Families with children enjoyed the local Dinosaur Museum, rivers and lakes for swimming and recreation parks. Others in the group took advantage of the local kayaking and white water rafting opportunities, stunning walks, sightseeing and wine-tasting. The comfortable accommodation and range of activities on the doorstep or nearby made for a perfect family holiday.

“Gite Des Cathares - A Gateway to Cathar Country”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2011

We stayed in the first floor apartment for 4 weeks & loved it! As it was just 2 of us we had plenty of space (it has 2 bedrooms & is advertised as being an apartment for 6) but 6 people in there would have been too crowded with only 1 bathroom & toilet. The apartment is light & airy & tastefully furnished. The fans provided were essential as it was very hot being August. The only downside to the apartment is that it sits on the main trunk road to the coast & traffic (particularly heavy lorries) thunders past virtually 24 hours a day. We found early mornings particularly noisy from around 5am. The other disappointment was the lack of outside space - the advert features a shared terrace but in essence this is tiny & as it comes straight off the ground floor Gite the people staying there tend to use it for their own personal space. However, the local park is close by & we tended to use that for lazy afternoons as it is very quiet & relaxing to sit by the river which runs through the park. Couiza itself is a charming local town & we enjoyed many relaxing visits to the local cafe/bar for coffee & drinks. Couiza is ideally placed to visit the Cathar countryside & we would highly recommend it as a holiday venue. We would also recommend Gite Des Cathares - despite the road noise! It is a lovely place to stay.
