A perfect away from it all

  • 5 of 5

The last two weeks of September 2015 we spent at Maison Puech Malou.

We had been there twice before.

The weather was fantastic, the rooms, the hospitality felt like coming home, like all the previous times.

Even so late in the year you could still swim.

Everything was just great class and quality

This is France as we have it all in our dreams.

Thank you Monique and Harry !!!

We will be back.

Just short of OUTSTANDING

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was outstanding. Appearances was just as it was stated on VRBO. Having the use of the garage was also outstanding as this was not listed in the rental description. I would recommend going thru your home furnishing and equipment items in your book as there looks to be some missing. I would also recommend putting into your booklet a section on how to turn on the furnace and/or fireplace or who to contact as several nights at this rental got to be a little cold. I was also surprised by the amount of rain that fell during our stay that the roads did not become muddy. All in all, everything was enjoyable and would recommend this to others and I would rent this unit again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your input. Will make sure that all items you noted are in a more prominent location to not be overlooked in all our documents and advertising in addition that we will address any missing items during our next maintenance cycle. Note that some items are difficult to keep up with. That said we had a guests who damaged the aero queen sleeper which was not fixable and has been ordered for replacement. Guests comments are always welcome as it helps us make each of our homes top notch so guests will return and recommend us to their friends.

Prachtige B&B en mooie omgeving

  • 5 of 5

We zijn hier in september 2012 geweest en hebben een mooie tijd gehad hier. De eigenaren zijn erg gastvrij en vriendelijk en geven veel tips om de omgeving te verkennen. De gastvrpuw is ook nog eens een uitstekende kok! Het complex is heel charmant met een prachtige tuin en een lekker zwembad. Het ligt erg afgelegen dus je moet wel een auto tot je beschikking hebben. De omgeving is betoverend en er is genoeg te zien en beleven. Wij hebben de steden in de omgeving bezocht en een paardrijrit gedaan, maar er is nog veel meer te doen. Echt een aanrader!

A Slice of Heaven and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this lovely farmhouse and cottage in the summer of 2009 & again in 2011. What a magical place for our entire family, ranging from the ages of 3 – 71.

The home is charming, well equipped and clean. The grounds will take your breath away from the moment you pull into the drive. It can be difficult to find, so plan to arrive in daylight. It is remote, but that is part of the charm. You can still drive to many sights, restaurants, farmer’s markets, sheep farms, rock climbing etc. You can stay as busy as you like or spend lazy days by the pool, gathering chicken eggs or hunting for bugs as our children did for hours on end.

Harry and Monique proved to be much more than hosts. They can provide you with many ideas of what to do or see, make reservations for you, offer assistance with maps and navigating your day trips before leaving the house. They are there when you need them and quietly disappear when you do not.

Don’t miss Carcassonne, Cordes-sur-Ciel, the evening farmer’s markets, rock climbing (our 9 year old did it as well), visit to the sheep farm, dinner at the campsite, dinner at Les Secrets Gourmands, flea markets in neighboring towns and bring some good reading material for those lazy afternoons.

They did install wi-fi the summer of 2011, but they are not used to heavy American users so we had to pull back after the first two days. Don’t plan on working or streaming videos, just checking the occasional email if need be.

Not only would we recommend this property to friends or relatives, we are now taking them with us on return trips. Can’t wait to visit again!

idyllic, commodious and very pleasant

  • 5 of 5

An idyllic spot on the top of a hill overlooking a beautiful scenery. A nicely restored and very commodious maison. More than enough reasons for having a splendid and relaxed stay in one of the most lovely regions of France. But our hostess and host – Monique and Harry – made of our stay a real treat with their delicious breakfasts and tables d’hotes. And above all with the many pleasant conversations we had together.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Deer Trail worked out great for our family of four. The house was very clean and comfortable with a great location!!! We saw wildlife right in the backyard and our 5 yr old loved the hot tub. Any questions that we had were answered very fast. Thanks again...can't wait to go back!
