BRILLIANT HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic holiday in wonderful accommodation . Lovely hosts who made us welcome and were always on hand with help and advice. Weather was kind for April, and the views to the Pyrenees were stunning.
Lots of places to visit, super local markets and interesting towns and villages. Would really recommend for those looking for somewhere to wind and chill out for a week or two.

DON'T FORGET TO ASK ABOUT THE COOKING CLASSES...!

Don't forget to ask about the cooking classes...!
  • 5 of 5
We have just had another wonderful stay with Suzie and Mike at En croup bas.

This is truly a sanctuary. Mike and Suzie go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that everything is perfect, and when combined with the spectacular location and the beautiful local villages the total experience is delightful.

What we didn't know beforehand is that Suzie, a brilliant chef who in a former life worked at one of the UK's finest hotels, is providing cooking classes for those of a culinary persuasion. When you've experienced one of her meals there's no resisting signing up for a lesson. Professional, comprehensive and friendly - just like everything else. I've just spent an afternoon with Suzie making sourdough bread, with all local ingredients, and the taste is magnificent!

Thoroughly recommended.

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY AWAY FROM IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
En Croup Bas is a quiet secluded characterful Gite in rolling French countryside with wonderful views across the large pool to the fields, hills and Pyrenees beyond. It has ever thing you could want in terms of facilities and rooms with two great balconies. It's also a good base to explore surrounding towns/cities - we recommend Lautrec, Revel, Castres & Albi.
Mike & Suzie are very friendly and welcoming, a mine of local information and Suzie cooked us two superb meals - do treat yourselves to at least one!

A wonderful holiday! We hope to visit again.

AMAZING PROPERTY WITH BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Our second visit and everything was as perfect as before. The views, pool and the comfort of the villa are first class and only surpassed by the hospitality offered by Mike & Suzie and the best meals in France prepared by our host. Can't wait to return.

VIEWS AND FOOD

  • 5 of 5
Suzie and Mike made us very welcome to their gite with wonderful views as far as the Pyrennees. The gite is fully equipped for all your needs, especially if you want to cook, but why cook with Suzie's supberb range of meals that cover every taste.
It is in a very quite hamlet but minutes away from Puylaurens for shopping. There are many places to visit in the area and would recommend Castres for a large town with much to see in its old buildings and museums. Places such as Carcassonne and Castelnaudry are not far away.

Many thanks to Suzie and Mike for their hospitality and wonderful meals.

GREAT BREAK

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful off season break at En Croup Bas in February. The apartment was warm, comfortable and very well equipped. As others have said, the views from the balcony are superb and we were even lucky enough to see the snow capped Pyrenees on a few occasions.
Suzie and Mike were extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Our primary reason for the trip was to search for our own holiday home and they went out of their way to help us. In addition, when we wanted time off from viewing houses, they gave us great ideas for walks etc. As everyone else has said, Suzie's cooking was delicious - who would bother to go out for a meal!
I hesitate to recommend En Croup Bas as we would like to keep it secret! It is a great place to stay in an interesting area and we will definitely be returning.
