Guestbook comments from the owner

We did love the house and garden. I completely loved the swallows! They sat outside our window every morning. I also really liked the outside table and chairs. They were v comfortable and the view was beautiful.

Gorgeous house in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Les Hirondelles. The house itself is gorgeous: spacious and relaxing, with plenty of space both inside and out for members of the family to find privacy as well as to enjoy communal activities by the pool or at meal times. The young and old among us enjoyed watching the swallows dart above the pretty garden in chase of insects to feed their young in a nest in the stable, and we were lucky enough to see a red squirrel in the drive. Our young boys relished their daily task of picking ripe tomatoes and even a cucumber for our salads too.

The property was clean and well maintained, with both the house and pool cleaned during our stay, adding to our relaxation while there. Jane was helpful and communicative throughout, and those who cared for the house in the owner's absence were also friendly and considerate during our stay.

When we could drag ourselves away from the pool, we were spoilt for choice with places to visit - wonderful Carcassonne should not be missed and we loved the medieval village of Alet-les-Baines (near Limoux). We also ventured to Gruissan Plage, Narbonne, Toulouse and further afield to the pretty Catalan harbour town of Colliure. Cathar castles dot the landscape, which ranges from mountainous to rolling hills to coastal lagoon within relatively short distances, and adds to the region's allure.

All in all, a lovely place to stay in an interesting and beautiful region of France.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Les Hirondelles. The location is idyllic - perfect if you want to get away from it all but also close enough to lots of places of interest. The house is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Our children loved the property, particularly the pool area and Games room, and there's plenty of outside space to enjoy. The owners responded quickly to all of our queries and gave us lots of helpful advice. We loved this property and would love to return one day.

Les Hirondelles

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful house, garden and pool equipped with everything you could wish for. We had a fantastic family holiday enjoying the swimming, outside living and evening games of pool in the games room. The local vineyards sell great wine and the house is on the Cathar trail with spectacular castles to visit. Having stayed at Les Hirondelles on three separate occasions we look forward to our next stay.
