“Amazing reviews are all true - fantastic holiday”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had an absolutely brilliant holiday. The location is beautiful, with nice local restaurant and great patisserie. We recommend getting a gateau St Honore made to order. Sue was a generous and welcoming hostess - replying very promptly with any queries, always willing to help us out with providing information and booking restaurants or activities. The gite was extremely comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. The swimming pool and hot tub were awesome with spectacular views

“Excellent place to stay in Caucasonne”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This is an excellent place to stay in the Caucasonne area. The accommodation is well appointed, and Sue who runs it is welcoming and helpful. It is convenient because there is off street parking, and Moussoulens is within a 30 minute drive of large number of interesting and picturesque villages. Staying in any one of them would be less convenient because of problems of car parking in those villages, and driving from Moussoulens to visit them is a much better idea. Sue knows all of the local restaurants, and was happy to assist us by booking them, and to arrange a taxi when we preferred not to drive ourselves in the evening. All in all a highly recommended place in which to base yourself when visiting this area. For self catering there are barbecues, and there is also a large inviting pool which was most welcome in the hot weather.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Entering our accommodation it was obvious it was of a very high spec with all mod cons, including a washing machine. In the grounds there is a lovely swimming pool. Bikes and helmets were available, we had a good ride along the Canal de Midi. The location is in a quiet village with a bakers and a general store. A much larger supermarket is available about 12 minutes away. The fantastic Carcassonn is about 15 minutes away, get there early when there are fewer people. Sue was a fantastic hostess, very helpful.

“Delightful place in delightful surroundings”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A Casetta provided us the perfect retreat for our week of exploring this beautiful part of France. Clean & chic and well equipped for all our needs with just a short stroll to the gorgeous garden with hot tub and pool. We also couldn't have asked for more from our host Sue who has created a stunning environment in which her guests can relax . Thank you Sue for helping me practice my French!

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was just what we wanted for a relaxing stay in this lovely part of France. The accommodation is excellent for a couple and the location perfect for travelling around the area. There is a great sunny patio outside the door and within a few paces you can access the shared pool, sun loungers or hot tub.

You can walk from the gite to pick up bread and essentials and there is a basic restaurant in the village if feeling lazy.

Susan was very helpful and on hand if we had a query or wanted advice on where to go.

Difficult to put into words what a relaxing, friendly and enjoyable place for a holiday..

“Enchanting studio, beautifully presented”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014

My wife and I were hoping for a bit of comfort and luxury at A Casetta at the end of a 2 week camping trip in Languedoc / Herault. We were not disappointed!
The studio is beautifully finished, with everything provided to make our stay unforgettable. Sue is a charming and knowledgeable host, with no request too much trouble.
We would definiteltey recommend any Sue's 3 properties.

“Lovely quite place to stay near to Carcassonne”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely place to stay in a typical small French village. One of three small rentals around the owner's property with use of owner's swimming pool, gardens and hot tub. Sue is very helpful with information and suggestions of where to go and what to do. Great location for visiting Carcassonne, Canal du Midi, Cathar castles and lots of other local attractions.
