perfect destination to get away from it all
Well appointed property, blissfully quiet, off the beaten track but close to amenities and well placed for lots of places to visit and things to do, should you want to drag yourself away from the good sized pool and the spectacular view towards the Pyrenees. Very comfortable, one of the best holiday homes in France we have stayed in.
Thank you very much for your lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at La Rocaille! We have tried to make La Rocaille everything that we like in a holiday home so are very happy that our guests also enjoy our home, scenery and tranquillity as much as we do.
Good property, but watch out for hidden charges!
This is a good quality property with superb views. Perfect for a summer getaway with the pool making it ideal for families. The property is modestly furnished but perfectly comfortable.
My only negative (and this is against all else being positive) is that we rented the property for 3 weeks. No cleaning included during this time, which was fine, but we were then charged extra cleaning when we left.
On our arrival, the shower was not particularly clean and chose to view the multiple cobwebs as adding rustic charm! Within a few hours, we noticed an odd smell in the kitchen which we discovered was a decomposing lizard in the back of one of the cupboards. We took this in good spirit, but became somewhat irritated after our departure to be charged extra cleaning! We had cleaned the kitchen surfaces, swept out the floors, stripped the beds and folded sheets neatly and packed up all towels neatly. To avoid such charges, do a thorough clean - not my idea of a good end to a holiday when that is supposed to be included in the price.
The above said, the area is stunning and the property is ideally located for exploring the medieval towns and villages of the area as well as the Canal Du Midi. Quite isolated and so not suitable if you want to walk to a local bar or restaurant in the evening.
If your children are under 5 - my view is that the property would not be suitable due to the mountain location and the quite steep drop at the front of the property. Older children will love the pool.
Hope this review is of help and enjoy.
We are so glad that you liked La Rocaille & had a lovely holiday. We aim to please all of our guests and are disappointed that you were irritated by the extra cleaning charge.
We do offer end of stay cleaning in with our rental price but (as clearly stated in our terms & conditions) we ask that our guests leave the gite in a reasonably clean & tidy condition on their departure. This is because there is only a limited time slot between one set of guests leaving and the next group arriving so we have to be able to guarantee that the cleaning is able to be comlpeted within that time frame. We don't deduct money from the securty deposit lightly and have only ever done so on 2 occasions in the whole time that we have been renting La Rocaille.
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for us - we appreciate it all.
Prachtige vakantiewoning met alles erop en eraan. Je voelt je onmiddellijk thuis. Alle comfort is voorhanden. Als je rust nodig hebt is dit de perfecte locatie.

La situation et la région sont splendides. La vue est superbe et le petit village de Siran charmant. Le gîte dispose de tout le confort nécessaire sans luxe excessif mais d'un excellent rapport-qualité prix. Belle piscine au calme et dans dans un environnement unique. Nous n'hésiterions pas à y retourner.
