Why Nick or Jo chose Labecede-Lauragais

We bought this property as it ticked all our 'boxes'. Set in beautiful countryside yet near to civilisation and interesting areas to discover. Easy access to both the Med coast and to the Pyrenees for skiing. Great seasonal weather. Less touristy and closer to 'traditional' France than some other more developed regions.

What makes this cottage unique

Plenty of space; large heated pool; children's play area; near to historical towns of Revel (furniture centre of France), Carcassonne and Toulouse.

Great place to relax, enjoy the fun for everybody

  • 5 of 5

This is really amazing place to stay. The lady manager is very friendly and professional and is making sure you have a good time of your holidays.

The south of France is beautiful and this area particularly – we say the “Tuscany of France”. Unspoiled, not too much tourists (but of course we are!), nice little restaurants and of course the city if you must go there.

For Les Armengaux, this place is truly spectaculare. Very much space with the fruit trees (beautiful cerise), the children area for play and the very large “bath” – the pool is very much warm!

We come in June and this is perfect time for to enjoy very tranquillity and good times.

We find the Gite very accommodating with well serviced kitchen and updated bathroom and salon – fantastic renovation! Very relax, clean and sweet.

Many place to see hear and much relaxing is possible. We may be back soon!

Best regards

Amazing family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We all thoroughly enjoyed our time at Les Armengauds. For the children, it has loads of land run around and burn off energy as well as the play area, trampoline and pool. For the adults – you are immersed in breathtaking French countryside with far-reaching views of the Aude valley, together with the peace and tranquility that this wonderful rural property gives you.

Did we mention the pool?! Other reviews seem to have – but it just can’t be over-stated. Wonderfully large and beautifully heated, our kids (and us) just couldn't get enough. We had to tear ourselves away from it to discover the rest of what was around us.

Before we mention the area, just a quick word on the property itself: it is beautifully decorated with ample space; lovely kitchen with everything you need and a wonderful lounge to relax in after a hard day in the pool / at the beach / etc.!

So what’s around? Well there’s Revel as the nearest town – giving you plenty of supermarchés, patisseries, choclateries, restaurants and the wonderful Saturday morning market...go early and soak up the atmosphere. Then there’s Carcassonne – and the wonderful cité (think Disney princess castle on steroids..!). For real shopping, you have Toulouse – lovely city with a Space Centre, Airbus (Concorde, A380), shops, cafés, restaurants, museums, galleries and big department stores. Also, you are on the border of one of the biggest wine areas in Europe – so plenty of vineyards to visit. Other things for the kids include a water-park, dry ski slope, water-skiing, the Med beaches, an African safari park, an Australian park (?!), amazing pre-historic caves, the Pyrenees mountains....(I could go on).

Anyway, enough rambling – suffice to say: this is one of our best holidays to date and - although we generally do different holidays each year – we are tempted to return to this wonderful place.

Highly recommended to all!

Les Armengauds gite.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday here with our two grandchildren (aged 10 and 6) and would highly recommend this gite to others, especially families with kids who can already swim.

The accommodation is comfortable, our hosts were always helpful and friendly, and the garden Is just great for kids ( especially the trampoline and table-tennis table) and has a lovely outlook.

The heated pool is a real asset, and having had experiences with freezing 'solar heated' pools elsewhere in France we'd say that any family who want to enjoy regular/daily swimming as part of their holiday will love this place: the pool is big enough for a 'decent' swim and it really is warm!

In addition, and although the location itself is very quiet and peaceful, this gite is ideally placed (15 minutes or so from the motorway at Castelnaudary), if you want to get around this area of France, and there are plenty of options to choose from. We ended up going to the Med coast more often than we planned to (just over a hours drive away) and ended up doing only half of what we originally intended to - and at the end of a day out the kids headed straight for the pool.

We would go back in a flash, and hope to next year!

a beautiful holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely gite. It is comfortable and well equipped. The outside space is fantastic with well kept gardens, a great play area and the swimming pool is a real sun trap. The views over sunflower fields are fantastic and the gite is situated in very peaceful countryside. Time spent in the evening cooking on the BBQ with a glass of cold rose and enjoying the evening sun and the views made this one of the best holidays I have ever had.

The gite may be quiet but within 10 minutes drive are supermarkets, the lake at St Ferreol, and Revel, which is a lovely little market town. It is also a comfortable distance to get to Toulouse and Carcassonne. For those with children, also accessible is a fantastic swim centre at Castres, and a high wire place is also nearby for those with a head for heights.

Jo and Nick are welcoming hosts who are discreet but friendly and available for advice about where to go and what to do.

I would definitely recommend this gite and we would be very happy to go back next year.

LOVELY SETTING

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the gite. The facilities were first class with both location and layout ideal for us. The property is very clean and up to date. Nick and Joe were very helpful yet discrete and we would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday facility to anyone. The pool was the best we have had in our long list of gite holidays in France over the last twenty five years.

The surrounding area appealed to both of us, especially the lake. The setting is ideal for an evening meal. A walk round the lake helped to cap the evening off.

We flew into Toulouse, hired a car and we reached the gite very quickly. Toulouse is ideal as a fly-drive base.
