“Beautiful little cottage”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2016

A little peace of haven. A delightful cottage set on the edge of a quiet little village. The cottage was very tastefully renovated with attention to detail exceptional. We loved our stay at Martina and Simons cottage. They were extremely helpful about the local area giving us advice on where to eat and useful info on local places of interest. The secret garden was a very peaceful place to sit, eat and read. Listening to bird song while surrounded by beautiful flowers just added to the feeling of wellbeing. We had a great time just chilling! Thanks Martina & Simon for a wonderful stay! Tanya & James Skelton

Many thanks for your lovely comments, we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and had time to relax in the garden when you were not out and about. May see you next year !

Excellent Gite, friendly helpful hosts. Well placed for touring Cathar sites. Well equipped , garden detached but only a few yards and lovely to sit and read in. It is on the road but there is so little traffic it was never a problem and the view to the mountains is fabulous

It was lovely to meet both of you and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the positive review and we hope to see you again sometime.

“Stunning location”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2016

La Chapelle is the perfect base for exploring this beautiful area, and a comfortable, well-appointed home from home. The views from the gite are quite stunning, and simply sitting at the dining table or waking up to the panorama of the mountains and meadows is a complete pleasure. The gite is cosy, clean, and has just about everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The fridge only has a small icebox, and there's no separate freezer, so you'll have to avoid the tempting range of ice-creams in the local supermarkets! The location is excellent, Brenac is a quiet village with a visiting bakers van on some mornings, but it's a short drive to either a Carrefour Market or an Intermarche. Quillan is a charming, unspoiled town with a good mix of eateries. We drove to Perpignan and Collioure very easily, through the dramatic Defile de Pierre-Lys. The Cathar castles at Puivert, Montsegur, and Peyrepertuse are all easy drives (that's just a selection of the castles in the area)! The Gorges de Galamus is spectacular driving but not for the faint-hearted! We enjoyed it so much we're already planning another trip to the region in the autumn.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and as you say we are very fortunate to live in such a stunning area. There is so much to do that as you found out one visit is never enough ! Thank you for choosing us and giving us a great review, it was a pleasure to welcome you both.
