We had a great visit. Vickie and Neil were so welcoming and helpful. Their house is lovely and a wonderful place to gather with family. Bike ride on canal, winery visit and just hanging out in the perfectly decorated home were all just great. Loved the bed and comfy linens!!
Wish could have stayed longer!
Our stay with Neil and Vicky was not long enough and we hope to return. The beautifully restored farm house was spacious and cosy. It is the perfect location to explore Carcassonne and the local region. We hired bikes from them (all in good condition) for a day’s cycling along the Canal du Midi which proved to be a great day out. A wonderful rural retreat with excellent hosts.
The home was impecablly clean and very tastefully decorated. The site and surrounding area is beautiful. The hosts were extremely helpful and were on-site to personally greet us and to assist with things to do along with identifying the closest markets for shopping and the medieval shopping village of Mirepox.
We would highly recommend and would return.
This is the second time that we've stayed at Les Cypres and will definitely be returning in the future. The gite is lovely and set in beautiful communal grounds with views stretching for miles - sunflowers, mountains and little villages nestled in the valleys. The gite is very close to the Canal du Midi and the owners hire out bikes so you can explore it. There is so much to do in the area - coast, Cathar castles, lovely towns and mountains, but you'll want some home days too to enjoy the pool and the games (table tennis, table football etc.) and to sit and enjoy the views (perhaps with a glass of wine?).
We rented the 4 bed Gite for a week and shared it with my brother and family. It really is a lovely building with enough space for 9 people to move around easy.
There is a large barn with games that you can sit in late evening which is lovely and cool. The pool is amazing and very big. Lots of space with a great changing area for everyone to use.
The surrounding area is also fantastic. Its an ideal place to base yourself if you want to travel around and see the sights or just stay the week and enjoy the grounds and pool. 10/10
