We had a wonderful week with Sharon and her family who made us so welcome and helped make our week a relaxing and fun filled experience. Their local knowledge and advice on where to go was invaluable. We had the best of both worlds relaxing by the pool or taking trips out to the wonderful French towns, markets and historical sites. The accommodation lived up to our expectations, clean and beautifully decorated and Sharon’s attention to detail is second to none! Thanks again and hope to see you soon :) Sue and Andy

Nous avons passés un séjour très agréable chez Sharon et Paul que nous remercions pour leur hospitalité. La piscine est magnifique, la propriété très agréable. Le logement est spacieux et bien équipé. Aucune crainte à avoir du chien, adorable avec les adultes et les enfants et pas du tout bruyant. Nous l`avons vu 2 fois en 5 jours. Il il reste sagement avec ses maîtres.
Aug 2018 Agréable séjour près de Carcassonne. Sharon et Paul sont très accueillant. Le Jardin est très beau avec une grande piscine qui est parfaite par temps de canicule -) Nous étions avec notre fils de deux ans, qui a adoré la piscine et les nombreux jouets, et aucun problème avec Rollo le chien qui une fois la première rencontre passé nous a adopté.
