The gite has a fully fitted, modern kitchen with dining and living area under oak beams, plus 2 spacious balconies (7m x 4.5m and 3.5m x 4m), either can be used for outdoor eating if required. Tables and chairs are in place where you can eat and drink and admire the views of either the marvelous sunsets or the startling clear, starry nights.

There is also a patio heater on the largest balcony should you need it.

There is a 7m x 11m pool set in a peaceful tranquil area which is a natural sun trap, with comfortable loungers and umbrellas to shade you, if you so desire.

Idyllic Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had the most lovely family break staying in this wonderful property. The owners, Suzie & Mike are perfect hosts who ensured our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. The gite is perfectly clean and well equipped. It looks out over a stunning view of (whilst we were there) sunflowers fields to the Pyrenees beyond. We used the pool most days which was a perfect size and tended to every day to keep it clean and tidy. We cant wait to go back as our holiday was so lovely. Thank you Mike & Suzie!

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.

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.

The property is situated in the centre of the Albi, Carcassonne and Toulouse tri-angle with the Revel market (often described as 'the best in the South of France') just a ten minute drive away. It is possible to visit a different market every day. Local wine areas include predominantly Gaillac, Minervois, Cahors, Corbieres and Limoux.The area is well served by restaurants catering for all tastes from snack type food to Michelin star food. You can visit interesting historical sites in the Cathar region and take day trips on a narrow boat along the famous Canal du Midi. The nearest town 5 mins away - Puylaurens, has medieval origins and a weekly market. Castres, 20 mins away is an historical town with fascinating riverside houses, markets on most days and the Goya museum to visit. The property is centrally accessible to areas such as Albi, Agen, Cordes, Lautrec and the Tarn Gorges (superb for canoeing) - all well worth a visit.
