Beautiful place, fantastic hosts
The gite is exactly as described. Very well equipped, very clean and with fantastic views of the Ariége hills.
The layout of the bedrooms is a little unusual, to reach the twin bedroom and the bathroom you have to go through the double bedroom, but this was not a problem for us. The downstairs is all open plan, which is great for socialising and cooking at the same time. The kitchen facilities are good with plenty of space to prepare and eat food.
The grounds are great, we made good use of the barbecue and the pool, which was refreshing even in the rain. The view from the pool is superb.
There is a lot to do in the area, we only had 3 nights there, but could have easily filled a week. We thoroughly enjoyed the underground boat trip (1.5km through some fascinating caves). Would also recommend visiting Carcassonne, but the climb is hard work on a hot day! We also visited Montségur, but unfortunately it was very wet that day so we did not get the views.
The best thing about the place however, has got to be the owners of the gite. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. They always had time to share their local knowledge with us and provided everything we needed and more! Many thanks to them :-)
We (family of four with 7 year old twin boys) had a lovely week at Floc in July. The weather was superb and the place is tranquil with fabulous views. The gite (Le Repos) was exactly as it is described. Robin and Susie are excellent hosts (there when you need them yet unobtrusive)
We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool. We also went to Montbel (a large local lake), Carcassonne for the day, and Monsegur.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone who wants a quiet family holiday (with a pool) with lots to do and see (as long as you have transport).
