The gites at Polfages are a great place to relax and unwind. This is our second year, choosing this time to stay in Mazamet (the largest). The views from the gite and pool are stunning and the properties are all equally well finished. Andrew and Jo do a great job of looking after you and have started doing great pizzas to order on those nights where the BBQ seems too much effort. The property is great if you have dogs as you can walk straight off the end of the garden and go for as long or short as you like through fields of corn and sunflowers. The location is nice a rural with silence in abundance yet Mirepoix is only 15mins away and Bram, Castelnaudary, Montbel (Lake) and Carcassonne not much further away. No doubt we will be back
We arrived at 12.30 p.m. after a long journey from Paris, but we were still greeted with a warm welcome by our host Andrew, the owner of Polfages. We had pre-ordered a meal and this was ready for us even at such a late hour. This was a gastronomic feast, consisting of baguettes, fruit, wine, juice and chocolate mousse. Our gite was immaculate and the decor attractive and to a very high standard. The view from the pool was over looking fields of sunflowers with the Pyrenees as a backdrop. I felt like a celebrity sunning myself my the pool with a view to die for. Jo, Andrews wife was so kind and couldn't do enough to help us. She even managed to get a stain out of my white capri pants. And this lovely couple even offered to baby sit the children so we could have a night to our self. During our time at Villautou we visited the beautiful beach at Narbonne le Page and several stunning historic cities, including Mirepoix, Carcassonne and Narbonne le Cite. I can highly recommend Polfages to other families looking for a wonderful holiday. I would rate it higher than any other holiday we have had! But I would rather keep this slice of heaven to myself incase it is fully booked next year! We will be booking early to avoid disappointment!
We stayed for 5 nights at from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt very welcome by the owners and very settled! Our 4 year old daughter got very much stuck in with the dogs, cats, chickens & goats and was always keen to get back to our gite while we were out exploring. The surrounding area is stunning and the views from around the property were fantastic. Great roads for exploring by bike or car and the nearby towns very much worth a visit. The owners were very kind to give us lots of good tips on places to visit too, so each day was an enjoyable adventure followed by a swim in the pool and a BBQ - sheer bliss! The house itself was lovely, clean and tidy and had all the amenities we needed plus a few nice little extras like cling film, tin foil and washing up liquid - may sound silly, but we always forget to pack these, so it was nice to have them provided so we didn't have to go shopping for them on arrival! On that note, the offer from the owners to pick up basic shopping for us before we arrived was great, as we had come on the overnight ferry to Santander and had a night stopover on the way from there, so we couldn't have brought our own provisions and we arrived when the shops were closed on a Sunday. It meant we could enjoy a lovely meal on our first night without any hassle. We would definitely recommend Polfages to friends and family and look forward to returning back ourselves next time we come to France!!
