“Another fabulous stay here”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We returned again to stay here on our way back to the UK from the south of France! We love it here! Very peaceful and picturesque! We were very fortunate to be here for the fireworks by the lake at Puivert! What a stunning display! We took a picnic and a bottle of wine and sat by the lake looking at the stunning views! There was entertainment for children and lots of people swimming in the lake on a warm evening. Market stalls provided a variety of food and snacks! The fireworks display started at 10 pm ..... And so did the rain!!!! It didn't spoil the evening as we had such a fantastic time! We will be back again in September!!

Thanks very much for your hospitality again

“What a wonderful place!”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We loved it here so much we're looking to head back later this year! Beautiful, tranquil surroundings (great for walking and cycling), good location for Carcassonne, local markets and quaint historic villages. The gite has absolutely everything you could possibly need - and the owners are so lovely! Top tip: order the breakfast basket (yum - I miss these!)

Thank you for the lovely review. So glad that you enjoyed your stay here, especially the breakfast baskets!
You certainly made the most of your time here, squeezing in so many activities. You wore me out just telling me about your day each evening, whilst you relaxed round the pool.
Looking forward to welcoming you back here later in the year.

“Another brilliant visit!”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We returned here for another stay at a different time of year to our last one. As usual we really enjoyed it! The weather was brilliant for February and we were able to be outside all the time! It's a great stopover for us on route to St Cyprien Plage near Perpignan. We were again made very welcome and it was good to be back! The hosts are brilliant!
On the Saturday evening we ventured to Limoux which isn't too far to go for a meal! Plus there was the Limoux carnival that evening which we had read about previously. Fantastic meal at Le Grand Cafe in the main square! Beware ...the pizzas are very large!!! The carnival was well worth the visit and we thoroughly enjoyed the carnival!

We will be back again! Thanks again to Lionel and Gill for being perfect hosts! A bientot!

It was lovely to welcome you back, thank you for choosing our gite again! So glad that you got to see the carnival in Limoux, it is quite an unusual sight, isn't it? And thanks for the warning about the pizzas!
You were certainly very lucky with the weather, may it continue for your stay in St Cyprien Plage.
We look forward to seeing you again soon in our wonderful corner of France .

“Beautiful, welcoming gite in a heavenly setting”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a fabulous time staying at the Quatre Bougies, stunning views in a very traditional setting. We were made very welcome by Gill, the bottle of wine was an added bonus after our journey! The gite was really clean and had everything we needed, it was great being woken by songbird!
We were so lucky with the weather, every morning we enjoyed our breakfast outside overlooking the hazy, golden forest- even in January! I would highly recommend the location, we spent most days on the ski slopes, the nearest was an hour away and very easy to get to. Gill recommended a traditional music night at the local brewery which was really worthwhile! If you love quaint little french villages, crisp fresh air and mountains then I would high recommend staying here.

Thank you for taking time to review our lovely gite in South West France, and so quickly too! But most of all, thank you for staying here , we are so glad that you enjoyed everything about it...you certainly made the most of your time here! We enjoyed having you here and enjoyed your company over a bottle or two. We do hope that you choose to stay with us again when having a few days on the slopes, or maybe in the summer months when you can make full use of the pool and gardens. We look forward to seeing you again.
Kind regards

“Small but neatly formed!”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Title is not a criticism at all. I think it could be described as 'bijoux'. A very well equipped gite, something that makes a nice surprise, from tinfoil, to tea towels, to cool bags - very impressed.
Location ideal for exploring the surrounding area. We were cycling quite a bit and Lionel was happy to send through suggested routes and maps prior to our arrival. Gill & Lionel are very welcoming and lovely hosts. Pool was an added bonus with beautiful views. We only went to the restaurant across the road on our last night, which was a big mistake as it was lovely and should have gone there more often! Wifi was quite weak at times but we got by. We will certainly return to the area.

“Absolutely fantastic place! We loved it!”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We are so pleased to see this property on your website so I can write a review on it! We stayed here before it went on your site and we can highly rate it as a place to stay! The owners were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. We only stayed for three days on route to St Cyprien Plage near Perpignan, from the UK, but so wish we could have stayed longer! It is so peaceful and quiet here and the scenery is stunning all around it. Lots of wildlife around and fruit on the trees was delicious! We explored the nearby villages and the lake where there are lovely walks and restaurants for drinks and meals. The pace of life here is so relaxing! We swam in the pool which was gorgeous, while admiring the scenery!! There is also a lovely restaurant across the road from Quatre Bougies where they serve food and drinks! All in all it is highly recommended By us! We will certainly be going there again on our next trip to France in September! I wish them well with future bookings!
