“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 14 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Just returned from a week’s stay at Les Reves which we used as a base for house hunting in Languedoc. It was exactly as described and we were made to feel very welcome. My only regret is that we didn’t visit in the summer when we could have made the most of the lovely outdoor area. Maybe next year?!

Excellent, well equipped and comfortable accommodation. Pool is great and the hot tub an added bonus. Village and locality is very quiet and but lovely and lots to do in the area. Owners were fantastic very welcoming and I would happily recommend this property - we will definitely be going back again.

“Gorgeous, well equipped gite in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We've just returned from a wonderful week in Arques. Aideen and William gave us a very warm welcome, including two pizzas, as we arrived later than anticipated, and this was much appreciated. The roomy gite is in beautiful surroundings with views of the mountains and village, and it's very well equipped with everything you might need. Aideen and her family are there when needed, but are unobtrusive (meant in the nicest possible way!). We enjoyed using the pool, the jacuzzi, playing table tennis, tennis and darts, when we were there. We had wonderful days out, visiting beautiful Carcassonne, and discovered a passion for swimming in rivers and gorges and the local lake - no need for the sea, although it would have been possible to visit had we wished. Highly recommend a stay here for those with or without children. We hope to return.

“Beautiful place with lovely hosts”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

what a lovely stay we had with Aideen and Bill. We felt like friends at the end of our stay. Very comfortable place with lovely pool and hot tub. Very well equipped Gite in a lovely little village in a lovely area of France. A lovely welcome pack was included including wine, cheese and bread, biscuits and coffee which was great. All our questions were answered very quickly which was appreciated and local knowledge of events was passed on to us which was great. Also a delivery of free range eggs was great. The best thing about this property is the owners and their lovely daughters who are a credit to them, we would highly recommend this property for a lovely relaxing holiday as adults or with children.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Fantastic venue, accommodation but most importantly lovely people. You could not wish for better owners than Aideen & William. If you want to live the dream, visit Arques and surrounding area first. (+ we saw the first free range eggs on site) Hot tub & pool to die for.

“Well-equipped, spacious gite in good location”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Spent 9 nights in Les Reves in September 2015. It is a spacious gite with ample accommodation for four people and is well-equipped. It's located on the edge of the village of Arques so it's an easy walk into the Boulangerie and the bar. Sadly the restaurant in the village had closed for the season, even in early September, but this wasn't a major problem as there are numerous restaurants within a short-ish drive.

The pool is a good size and the hot tub's an interesting feature, if you're a hot tub person. The gite is set on a large plot with the owners' house and other out-buildings together with a huge field, so there's a really nice, airy feel to the place. Although we didn't use them, there are good facilities for families - bikes, table tennis, giant jenga and barbecues to name but a few.

The location is great - easy access to lots of interesting local sites, Carcassonne, the Cathar castles and abbeys and we even spent a day in Figueres to visit the Dali museum - well worth the drive.

We found the TV and the Wi-fi a bit hit-and-miss although the owners are aware of this and are trying to get them sorted. Strength of signal is the problem. Lack of TV wasn't an issue for us and we managed to get a Wi-fi signal for enough of the time to get by, although it's not available throughout the gite.

Bill and Aideen and their two daughters are attentive but unobtrusive hosts and a useful source of information on the area. Their welcome pack was particularly generous.

All-in-all, we had a wonderful time there and were very sad to leave....

“Great Location, terriffic Gite with pool and very friendly family owners”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just got back from a week in Les Reves in the village of Arques. Although just my wofe and I, there is a seperate bedroom with en-suite for another 2 people in large bedrooms. The living facilities are excellent with your own Kitchen, modern TV with internet and cooking facilities although we BBQ'd most of the time. The pool is a welcome relief at the end of the day as it is very hot here in the 30's.... Arques is a typical french village with a bakery for bread and other provisions, a bar that serves good food although just a single dish per day based upon availability. The routes locally are awseome to drive with day trips to Carcassonne and Andorra easily achieved. Quite stunning routes that meander thru the mountains and hills of the pyranees..... Overall, quiet, scenic and friendly... A great week.
