Spotless accommodation. Good pool. Well situated for sightseeing.Helpful advice from Rodger and partner.
This house is a dream. It has all you need on a holiday, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms perfect. You can even choose between fan or AC in the bedrooms. The pool is of a good size and immaculate, located in a beautiful garden with a patio.
The owners are extremly helpful and organise trips and excursions according to your needs. We have rented many places but this is by far the best. The village is small but has a little store and bakery.
We were delighted to find that this beautiful property fully lived up to its pictures and were especially happy with the high quality of the fittings and little touches such as soap and shower gel, sufficient towels and an extremely welcome selection of food to cover dinner and breakfast which allowed us to relax on arrival and shop when we were ready. We spent most of our time at the property relaxing round the beautifully kept pool on comfortable sun loungers and enjoyed eating our meals outside in a lovely private shaded area. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and good at suggesting places to visit.
Just returned from a wonderful week spent in the Aude region of the Languedoc .
Le Fitou is a traditional French gite with a large pool, sun beds and well kept garden situated in a small village location near to the Canal Midi and the beautiful historic towns of Narbonne and Carcassonne. One of my memories will be waking up with the sunshine gleaming ,overlooking the garden and pool and listening to the church bells ringing. Roger and Jane the owners are fantastic friendly hosts; they have researched the local area and subsequently know the best places to visit including restaurants, beaches and historic villages.
We have stayed in many gites and villas during the last 10 years in France and I must say the welcome pack was the best ever.! Thank you.
We'll visit again.
We (mum, dad plus sons 18 and 20) spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Le Fitou. We became 5 when joined by a son's friend in the second week. More than enough space and very comfortable- large living room with adjacent, well equipped, kitchen and dining room. We didn't use the dining room much, as we tended to eat on the shaded patio table just outside the kitchen, beyond which was a large, clean and essential (it was very hot) swimming pool within a beautiful garden. 3 good sized and comfortable bedrooms equipped with fans (essential at night). We loved it. Our hosts, Roger and Jane, could not have been more kind and helpful. They were full of information about the local area (places to visit, good restaurants, the best beaches, parking in nearby towns) which is so useful when you only have 2 precious weeks' of holiday. The location was perfect. So many interesting places to visit within an hour's drive. The furthest we travelled was to beautiful Montpellier, which took about an hour, but Beziers and Narbonne could be reached within 30 mins or so). Carcasonne about 45 mins. Memories will include: the village annual fancy dress barge race; boating on the canal; drinking with the locals at the nearby woodland bar; walking by the river to a beautiful nearby village called Le Somail (you must eat at the restaurant next to the second hand bookshop- Roger and Jane will give you the details); swimming in nearby rivers; wine tasting (if you throw a stone here, you will hit a vineyard); the boys and dad being pulled behind a speed boat at the nearby beach; eating grilled sardines and drinking wine at the beach restaraunt; 10km kayak ride (fantastic!); opening the shutters every morning to perfect weather. Thank you again to Jane and Roger for stocking our fridge with a few essentials prior to arrival. So kind. We will return!
We had a fabulous two weeks in this lovely place.
The gite is very clean and well equipped, with a generous supply of groceries/consumables so no need to rush to the supermarket on arrival. Superb pool!
Roger and Jane are very welcoming hosts with a good knowledge of the area.
The village is lovely. Walking to the shop for fresh croissants every morning is a pleasure when you are openly greeted by local residents.
There are so many places to visit within easy travelling distance and also a great selection of eateries in the area.
Looking forward to returning soon.
Ideally situated for the region - coast and country. Lovely hosts and accommodation. We could not have been more pleased.
