“An Oasis of calm and wonder”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

After a 2 day drive through France (and operation stack) we arrived at Maison de la Roche..... Wow! We stayed in the Secret Garden Cottage, it is beautiful and restored to a high standard. Bathroom is gorgeous, 2 extremely comfortable bedrooms and even English TV! The kitchen was extremely well equipped and extra little touches ie. picnic wear, shopping bags and even an umbrella was most welcome. Honor made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble...... The pool was a hit with the children (teenagers) and even though Honor had house guests there was plenty of room and beds around the pool. A wonderful first time holiday to this area and we will definitely return to MDLR. Café du Pont is a must for dinner!

“Fabulous week ”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We, and two other families, stayed at MdlR earlier this month for one week. We stayed in the Secret Cottage and the other families and Gite 1 and Gite 2. It worked really well. It meant we all had our own privacy but could meet up for meals in the communal areas, at the pool, by the swing or in the well stocked children's play room. It was hard to drag the children away from the refreshing pool (and Bob!) but we did manage to take in some of the local area including Carcassone, Lagrasse, Ribaute, Salses, Perpigan, Fabrazen and Ferrals les Corbières itself. It's a lovely region and a great selection of things to do, places to visit (and wine to taste!). Within walking distance there's a yummy boulangerie, a tasty and fun tapas and a more upmarket restaurant. The flexibility of the accommodation and its location worked very well for us. Honor was a friendly and helpful host and I would recommend anyone to stay there.

“Perfect Weekend”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in October 2014

MdlR is thee most perfect of places to stay, my friends and I had a wonderful weekend and altho October the weather was gorgeous...hot enough for the pool! Honor is a superb host and is extremely knowledgeable. The gites are beautifully decorated, clean and welcoming. A second visit is most definitely on the cards and I would recommend MdlR to people looking for either a fun packed holiday or a relaxing one as this place caters for both!

“Amazing luxury retreat, we loved it!”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were supposed to stay at Maison de la Roche 6 years ago and had to cancel unfortunately... but I always knew we'd make it one day and I'm so glad we did. We had an amazing week with our two boys, who wanted to stay and play in the beautiful pool all day. There's lots to see in the area so we managed to get out most days and relax by the pool or in the courtyard area in the evenings, which is lovely for BBQs too. Honor is really lovely and friendly and helpful - she knows all the best places to visit, including lots of great restaurants in the area. Bob the dog is gorgeous too! We'll be back one day, hopefully we won't leave it 6 years this time!

“Sit Bob! Good Boy!!”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Having stayed at Maison de la Roche twice before in 2009 and 2010, we knew that after 5 years, things might have changed. They had, well sort of.....Holly had been transformed from a little girl into a beautiful young lady and Bob had mellowed considerably despite having grown to the size of a small horse. Honor, on the other hand hadn't changed a bit. She's still the most kind, generous and fun-loving host you could wish for.

The difference this time around was that as well as visiting a few other towns and villages we hadn't been to before like Mirepoix and Foix, or spending the day canoeing in Roquebrun or at the Aqua Park at Lac de la Cavayere, the biggest thrill was getting to spend time with Honor and Holly, getting to know a bit more about what life in Ferrals is like for them and meeting some of their close friends, house guests and also those many colourful characters in the wider community.

I should also mention that this will be our last trip to Maison de la Roche....as gite guests that is. It's the 'big house' for us from now on apparently especially now that Bob and I have gained a mutual respect (it's a long story!).

So I guess this is not so much a travel review as a personal testament to a dear, dear friend. It's now hard to imagine a July or August without her. If you want a holiday you won't forget and a chance to make a friend for life then what's stopping you?

“Brilliantly situated in an area with so much to see and do”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I had one of our best ever holidays in France staying in Upper Gite 2 for two weeks at the end of June..The gite was very light and airy and the swimming pool is a great place to relax at the end of a busy day.
Maison de la Roche is brilliantly situated- 5 minutes from the motorway and main roads but in a very quiet village.(It's lovely to start the day with a 5 min walk to the local boulangerie for fantastic croissants )
It's very easy to get to lots of different towns, visitor attractions, very varied countryside, the coast and the Canal de Midi. ( Honor has created a fantastic information pack in the Gite with very helpful and interesting advice on places to go and what to do and see in this very varied area.)
My husband had great service from a local bike hire company "Melo Velo" ( recommended by Honor ) who delivered and picked up a bike he hired for 10 days -great rides in this area of France.

“Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful holiday at Maison de la Roche! The gite was beautiful and equipped with everything we could need. (We needn't have bothered taking toys for our daughter as there was a play room full of toys). It has been beautifully crafted so that many of the original features have been retained and new parts have been beautifully crafted from wood.

The site was perfect as it provided a variety of lovely shaded areas to sit and lounge and the layout meant you could have as much privacy or social interaction as you wanted. The gated entrance meant we could safely let our daughter wonder round the site on her own, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

It was a great base for exploring the local area and there was a really useful guide of many of the local amenities, attractions and restaurants which made planning what to do much easier. Having said that, the wonderful pool meant 'rest days' were equally fun.

All in all I can't recommend this place highly enough. We had a truly wonderful holiday and would love to go back.
