Nous avons passé le jour de l'an 2015 dans ce superbe gîte conforme aux photos, très bien équipé, c'est un lieu chaleureux ou l'on se sent bien, la nature est omniprésente tout autour du gîte, se qui accentue la sérénité de ce lieu. Marije et son mari, ainsi que la petite Sarah sont adorables, très à l'écoute et d'une grande simplicité, ce qui fait de l'ensemble un endroit que je recommande vivement si vous désirez, passer un séjour en pleine nature. Excellent rapport qualité prix!
Merci à Marije, Paul et leurs enfants. Le gîte est formidable. C'est une adresse que nous recommandons chaleureusement.
Lovely house and welcoming host. A great experience, we felt like at home and we had a fantastic weekend! I would gladly stay there again.
Une maison très agréable, traditionelle mais avec des equipations modernes et une cuisine très equipée.
Marije et Paul on été toujours ouverts a répondre quelque question sur la maison et la zone. Trés agréables et gentilles. Ils parlent françois, anglais et Hollandais.
La zone es parfaite pour faire des visites culturelles a Carcassone (1h), Narbonne (40 min) et Minerve (15min). En plus, Velieux est un ville dans un site naturelle très beaux, avec trop des activités de nature et sports pour faire.
La casa es realmente acojedora, con un toque de tradicionalidad pero con equipaciones realmente modernas. Super tranquila y grande.
Marije y Paul han estado atentos en todo momento, disponibles y dispuestos a responder todo tipo de preguntas sobre la casa y la zona.
La casa está perfectamente situada para hacer visitas culturales a Carcassone (1h), Narbonne (40min) y Minerve (15 min). Además, Vélieux, el pueblo, se encuentra situado en una zona natural llena de actividades de natura y deportivas por hacer.
We spent 4 days in this wonderful house in a beautiful surroundings. We felt like at home and our daughters were delighted and have a lot of fun to see animals snd to play all the time. Marjie is a friendly and perfect host. We will come back as soon as possible! Thank you very much for everything
We greatly enjoyed staying at the gite and we highly recommend it. Marije and her family were very hospitable. We arrived in the late evening with our 3 very hungry children. There are no food stores around at that time. Marije immediately organized an excellent supper, including a special tomato soup from vegetables from the gite's garden. In the morning, Marije prepared a map of the region's attractions for us, which we found very useful. The breakfast is also recommended. Our children enjoyed the spacy yard, including the trampoline, the rabbits, and also the pets (a cat and dogs) who came to visit us from time to time. We also enjoyed looking at the clean and starry sky in the nights. The gite is very clean and well-maintained.
My family (me, my infant daughter and my parents) spent two nights in this magnificent place. Little french village, virgin nature of Haut-Languedoc and well-equipped design house are the best company to relaxing family holidays.
Marije and her partner are extra hospitable and very pleasant to communicate with. Plus to the house (exactly as on the picture) you will get plenty of information, milk and eggs for the breakfast and fresh grape from their farm.
The house is perfectly reachable to lots of interesting towns: Béziers, Montpellier, Carcassonne, Toulouse...
The only thing is that this is a place for those traveling by car.
