“Relax in style”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My husband and I recently spent a relaxing and peaceful holiday at the gite. It's set in a marvellous location near to the city of Carcassonne and a 1 hour drive to the beaches around Narbonne. The gite is very well appointed and with a swimming pool, a great plus when temperatures reached over 30 degrees.
The nearest village at Caunes has good eating places and Trebses a short drive away on the Canal du Midi, a very good Tapas bar adjacent to the canal and other places to dine.
Nina and Christian are on hand to advise the places to visit and shopping for food was easy. The nearest small supermarket a 10min drive away.
The black mountains are worth a visit particularly Notre dam du cross.
We would certainly come back here again in the future.

“My stay in Les Pins”
Reviewed 13 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Myself and wife travelled down from Scotland looking for a comfortable place to stay and an interesting area to explore. We found Les Pins a comfortable, well equipped apartment close to the very interesting village of Cauns .
The apartment is set in extensive grounds which can give ample exercise opportunities for both children and dogs.
We found Christian and his wife very friendly without being intrusive.
The area round about provides much of interest.
Some of our favourite places included Canal Du Midi and some of the interesting towns on the banks of the canal, and of course Carcassonne, which is always worth a visit, but also meandering through the local villages and sampling the local wines.
My wife did have one area of concern however, the only toilet was outside the apartment. This was not a problem during the day but was a big problem at night.
Internet description was that the apartment contained two family bathrooms. Before we could give a total recommendation for this apartment this would need to be addressed.

“The Hat Trick”

For the 3rd year running my wife and I stayed at Les Pins on our annual pilgrimage to France. We never get fed up with this region as there is so much to see. Nina and Christians gite is so comfortable it's like being in your own home. With temperatures in the 30s for the week the swimming pool was a bonus after a day out exploring the region. Will we go again next year? Probably yes we've still lots more to see and can think of no better place to stay.

“Another week in Paradise”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

For the 2nd year running my wife and I booked to stay at Christian and Nina's beautiful gite to take in the Tour de France In Carcassonne, Like our previous stay we weren't disappointed. The new swimming pool was a wonderful addition to the property.

Christian and Nina are wonderful hosts and make you feel like part of their family. They are a mine of information on where to eat, drink and the best places to buy wine. If you don't want to eat out the Carrefour a 10 min drive away has everything you need to cook at the gite.

Hopefully we can make it a hat trick next year. We shall certainly try our best.

“What a wonderful location”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

Stayed at Les Pins on our way back from Spain. What a great choice it turned out to be. The gite was everything we could wish for. Set in a wonderful location away from any traffic noise, a place you always dreamt belonged to you.

The owners, Christian and Nina, made us feel welcome and explained how everything worked in the Gite. Having Wi-FI on site was a bonus for my wife who was able to complete a project before we returned to the UK.

Having a swimming pool on site was a bonus particularly with temperatures in the low 90s during our stay. A 25 minute drive to Carcassonne and it's many good restaurants, makes Les Pins the ideal location to eat, drink and to explore the region.

We liked it so much a return in the autumn is on the cards.
