Fantastic Holiday
29 June 2018
We have just returned from staying for a month in Tango. It was fabulous, roomy and comfortable, home from home. Carol and Andrew are fantastic hosts, always available if we needed anything which they attended to immediately. I highly recommend this for a holiday destination, it is close to all the main attractions with lovely walks by the canal

Tango has everything a familiy needs for comfortable holidays.The kitchen is well equipped, rooms are clean and quiet, the pool is great, WIFI is fast and stable and so forth. Being close to Carcasonne, Marseilette is an excellent base for trips to the lovely area. Toulouse or Narbonne are about an hour away and besides Carcasonne there are plenty of landmarks and historical sites in the proximity. Carol and Andrew did everything to make our stay an exceptional experiance. We also enjoyed the visits of Louis, al lovely Great Pyrenees.
Many thanks to our marvelous hosts.

Superb holiday home
19 June 2014
This is one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. It has everything. It is private, catches the sun at all times, and the pool is heaven. Andrew and Carol made us feel very welcome and all we had to do was enjoy the experience.The two patio doors give light and air and there is plenty of space outside for everyone. We liked the BBQ that used old vine roots, but there is a gas BBQ for the less adventurous! There is private access to the canal for walks and the surrounding countryside offers many interesting places to visit if you can be bothered. A great place to relax.
"Absolutely fantastic!!"

From the minute we were collected at the airport to the minute we were delivered back at the end of our two week stay it was nothing but brilliant. Tango was the nicest place we have ever stayed. Super-clean, and with everything you could possibly need. I can't really list all it had it had because it pretty much had everything! The pool was gorgeous, warm, and salt water instead of yucky chlorine. The property itself is very private, and Carol is very careful to check it's OK to come and make checks on the pool etc so as not to disturb. We hired their car that is available for the days we wanted to go out. A major, major bonus as it meant we didn't have to hire a car for the whole holiday. The air conditioning in Tango is brilliant, really good, so no uncomfortable nights... The area is fab, especially the wine cave down the road where you can get really cheap lovely wine, and Trebes is a great place to sit by the canal and have something to eat in one of the bars and restaurants. There are bikes to borrow if you fancy a cycle. Carcassonne is beautiful but there are also some great medieval castles and ruins to explore in the area. virtually untouched by tourism. In the village is a lovely little bar for food and drinks and an amazing boulangerie, which we went to every day. All in all we all agreed, the nicest family holiday we have had, diving in the pool (it's really deep at one end!) at midnight in such a peaceful and beautiful setting is something we really miss. On top of all this, the thing that makes this place so very special, and why we would go again like a shot? Carol. She is an absolute gem, and makes the place what it is. Thank you so much, Sue, John, Hermia and Oscar XX
Great place to be"

This year was our second visit to petitesecuries in Marseillette. The house is very clean, all you need is available, even some groceries are bought by the owner when you arrive. The owners are very, very kind people who give you a warm welcome and do everything to make your holiday as pleasant as possible. You can make beatiful trips with a bike (also available on the property) along the Canal du Midi, you can go to the beautiful place Carcassonne, Minerve, Narbonne, Toulouse or Perpignan. Along the canal du Midi there are a lot of locks, and it is very nice to watch the boats go through them. There is also a beautiful lake nearby, but the own swimming-pool is great to. Marseillette is a smal town with very friendly people. I would most certainly recommand this place to my family and friends, because in real life it is even more beautiful then on the pictures. If you like a quiet and relaxed holiday, then this is the place to be. Rene and Beatrix Vis
Fantastic holiday!

We are just back from a week in Tango and can't recommend it enough! A brilliant place to stay with young children (aged 4-8), they had the freedom to roam around in the lovely garden, the pool was lovely and warm, there was so much to do both in and around the villa and further afield!We will definitely be back for more! The owners were really nice and helpful. Best holiday ever!Will recommend it to everyone I know!
Excellent (especially with kids)

Myself and my wife travelled with our daughter (21 months) and stayed in the Tango villa. It has everything that you could possibly need and if not, Patrick, Carol or Andrew will be on hand to help you out. They were so welcoming and a pleasure to deal with. Our daughter loved roaming around the property, picking figs and boucing on the trampoline, while we enjoyed sipping wine from the region and cooking on the bbq.

They had bikes arranged for us and a little trailer for our daughter so we could get out for a spin very easily. It was also lovely to sit down the bottom of the garden and watch the boats go by.

The village itself is very quiet, with just one bar that closes at 8.30 and a bakery which has lovely pastries. But that made our stay even better because we just stayed around the villa. Trebes is close by which has a few large supermarkets and Carcassone is 20 mins away.
Lovely relaxing holiday

This was our second visit to Tango, prompted largely by our children who were desperate to return. Carol and Andrew are now living next door and are the perfect hosts, always cheerful and very welcoming (drinks, lunch, a game of boules or football with our children). In fact, it feels more like visiting friends than a holiday rental. Tango is everything you want in a house - well appointed, immaculately looked after and stylish decorated. The secluded location on the edge of the village (with a great bakery!) and next to the canal is prefect and the pool is as big as the house. The only worry with giving Carol and Andrew such well deserved compliments is that Tango might not be available next time we want to go - which we definitely will."
".... one of the best holidays we've ever had...."

Hi Carol and Andrew,

Firstly can I apologise for not emailing you sooner, but the weeks have just flown by since we left you.

We all wanted to say a huge thankyou to both of you for, what has to be, one of the best holidays we've ever had. From the minute we arrived to the last day we felt so at home.

The welcome lunch and delicious wine was very welcome after our journey from Scotland and our gite, Tango was perfect.

Every need was catered and every detail thought of. The pool was superb and Euan loved the table tennis table!

All of us felt we had a holiday(including Mum). The area is stunning and the use of the bikes to cycle along the canal path was wonderful. Carcassone was a stones throw away and Lac de Cavayere superb.

Finally, I can't sign off without mentioning the friendliness and hospitality shown by the two of you. Nothing was too much trouble and, Caroline, you even shared some things from her vegetable garden(which were delicious).

The Russell's will definitely be returning to Les Petites Ecuries and will be recommending you to all our friends.

Hope to see you very soon,

The Russell's.xxx
Fantastic Holiday

Everything we read and saw on the internet was true and even better then we thought. The house is beautiful, it's clean and everything you could possibly need or want is present (wifi, computer, dvd, wii, washingmachine, dishwasher - even some food was already in the freezer) and the swimming pool is great. There is a lot of space around the house and there are nice things to do, like table-tennis, jeu-de boule, and a game of which I don't know the name......but the guys loved to do it. There are also 2 barbeques (one of stone and an electric one(a big one!)) and we used it many times. It is a nice and quiet place in a little town where the people are very friendly and they greet you every time you see them. At the back of the garden there is the Canal du Midi. You can walk beside this canal or go by bike (bikes are also available).
There is also a lot to see in this area, par example: Carcassonne, Minerve, Narbonne, Castelnaudery - it's really all very beautiful!!!!!!!.The owners of the house, Carol and Andrew, are very nice people who will help you with everything you need or want, but they don't invade your privacy.
If you want a nice and quiet place to stay, go to this house. We loved it, also thanks to the hospitality of Carol and Andrew.
Happy Holidayers

Me and my partner Joey have stayed in Tango for a few weeks over spring in 2011. This was our first time in France and we are very happy that we chose to stay in Andrew and Carol's villa. Our first impression about the property was great, we thought that it's beautiful and very peaceful there. Inside the house it was very relaxing, modern, clean and tidy. Just what we needed after a long flight all the way from New Zealand. It was amazingly beautiful inside and outside. The villa's garden was just fabulous too, nice and green everywhere. The best part and our favourite was the big heated swimming pool and the old style BBQ oven outside where we cooked a lot. We had so much fun we had the best time and hope to stay there again soon. Also we loved that the Canel runs next to the property. It gives the are area a nice romantic feeling. The village and the people were also very friendly.
We just can't wait to go back and spend more time there.
Andrew and Carol have made a nice place that every generation can enjoy and where everybody can relax and we are very thankful for their hospitality. We'll see you guys again :)))

Great medieval castle

Loved staying in tango, my husband and i with our 14 year old daughter. Lots to see in and around Carcassone even this late in the year. Only had a long weekend but will be back this year for a week sometime.
Fantastic family holiday
16 December 2011
We saw Tango a year ago but it was booked, so we kept the details and called Carol and Andrew in January 2011 and booked for July 2011. The booking process was easy and hassle free. As a family we wanted a safe sole use pool that our two children could play. Mum and Dad wanted a holiday as well, especially Mum.

Carol & Andrew made our holiday come true, we were meet with a simple lunch, beer, wine juice for the kids and ice creams.. What a start!!!

They recommended places to see, things to do, and resturants to try. WOW what good advice... well I surpose that having had children of there own they would know. The Pizza place in Trebes was great, kids loved their pizza.

The pool, pool toys, swing, slide, tabletennis table, football and the viedeo system with on demand movies, internet and music was great too ....
