We found this brilliant house, a last minute decision after mandatory quarantine restrictions returning from France were lifted, and decided to take the Eurotunnel and drive to get away and to avoid flying. Over the years I must have rented at least 30 properties in various countries but Richard, the owner, was easily the most helpful and responsive I have had the pleasure of dealing with and following the Simply Owners booking methodology was simple and quick. As for the house itself, positioned so close to the beautiful, vibrant mediaeval city of Mirepoix, it is certainly the most well equipped of any of the houses we have stayed in; there was literally nothing, no utensil, piece of equipment, or facility that we couldn't find and it has been sympathetically renovated to provide excellent accommodation even for large families. The bathrooms would be the envy of most 5 star hotels and the spacious kitchen is a cooks dream, once you master the ceramic hob! The secluded pool was likewise in great condition and a balmy 27 degrees when we were there late August. As a base for exploring the Lauragais region it is perfect, with both the majesty of the Pyrenees and the course and towns of the languid Canal du Midi within easy reach. Don't miss a visit to Castelnaudary with its beautiful canal basin and nearby little hill town of Saint-Félix-Lauragais for its square and magnificent views over the surrounding countryside. As a place to get away to, La Bastide is simply lovely and an ideal way of disconnecting from the world for a while. The 4G signal is pretty good and if you really need WiFi then a 5 day pass from SFR is only €15. The true test of whether somewhere has ticked all of the boxes is to us simply, would we go again. The answer would be a resounding yes!
We stayed here in August and truly loved the house. It is very spacious, very clean and has everything you could need. The garden is large with the pool at the back of the garden. It is in a quiet village but this did not bother us at all. Mirepoix is 5 minutes drive and has restaurants, supermarkets etc. There is a lot to do around the area. I had several exchanges with the owners and they were extremely friendly and helpful. They couldn’t have done anymore in preparation for our vacation. Highly recommended and we will hopefully be back one day.
Richard is very organised and informative and made booking this delightful house very easy, even managing to secure an alternative cleaner despite his usual one being away. The house is so spacious and is beautifully decorated and furnished and has everything necessary to have a very comfortable stay, even down to providing adaptor plugs by the bedside. The pool area is lovely our teens spent hours sunbathing and splashing about. The table tennis provides hours of fun and on a wet day the wii provided entertainment. It’s in a rural quiet community with supermarket about 5 minutes away and lots of places to visit within an hour or so.
