5 of 5 stars Reviewed 27 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Lovely house for a group holiday.

The photos just don't do it justice, it's sparkling clean and has everything you need for that family holiday, we just couldn't keep the kids out of the lovely pool. Having been to a few 5* Gites in France this one definitely has the best pool and gardens.
The kitchen has every utensil and bowl you could possibly think of (we had a chef with us who couldn't fault it!) the outdoor kitchen is just fabulous for stocking those cold beers and wines to drink whilst chilling at the pool or dining al fresco from the BBQ!

The Gite is perfectly placed for visits to the beach or cities and the village shop has everything you need or the local supermarket is only a few kilometres away.

The property does have wifi but due to the location and thick walls it only works in certain locations, not a problem unless you want to work or download a film for the kids. However it is a get away from it all kinda place, so not a bad thing...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 26 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent two weeks at this property in August and must say that the property surpassed all expectations. The pool and outdoor living area is perfect, we spent all holiday in this area of the house having breakft, lunch and BBQ in the living area which backed onto a lovely sized pool and beautiful views across the vineyards.
The village is quiet, it's unspoilt and has a lot of French rustic charm. If you want nightlife with plenty of bars and restaurants Mailhac is not for you. However there is plenty of choice in the many villages nearby all within a short car drive.
Beaches are approx 40 minutes away and if you are feeling more adventurous barcelona is 2.5hrs drive south. Worth the early start if you want to sample Spain for the day.
The property is perfect for large families with lovely appointed well sized rooms all having en-suites. The furnishings and decor is spotless and well maintained by the owners.
No negatives! Would definately go back to that part of France...
