I wondered what I could add to the previous glowing endorsements? Firstly they are all true. Are they recent? You can’t get any more recent than a review written on the evening of our arrival home? Is September a good time of year to go. Absolutely if you enjoy more than warmth but less than fried. We had one evening thunderstorm which was positive since it cleared the air. The village, small enough not to get lost finding your way back from the bar...the canal runs along the bottom of the garden and is a good place for an evening meander. Geographical location? About 20 minutes from the airport once you’ve landed your there ( or very nearly!) Carcassone... we visited the old town on a Sunday morning... enough atmosphere without feeling overwhelmed. The town itself is on a grid system, easy to get your bearings with good shops which are almost universally closed in the early afternoon. We had a very brief trip to Narbonne. Eventually finding a parking space we realised that we would have absolutely no idea how to get back to the car if we left it. Shows our age I suppose... The right area. Lots of small villages, each with a river/tabac and a bakery. The gite is quiet, the gardens restful, the honesty bar plentiful,WiFi is quick and stable. Carol and Andrew are genuinely lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them to ensure that you will have a memorable holiday. Quiet voice.... Louis the dog is also lovely and.... I don’t even like dogs. Good choice? Absolutely. Jan and Sandy Thomson

We've just returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday staying in PonPon, with our two teenage daughter's. Carol, Andrew and Louis the dog, who is a gentle giant warmly greeted us on arrival and Carol showed us round the gite, she was very friendly and went through all we needed to know. Nothing was too much trouble and she was always around if we needed anything. The Gite was spotless, the kitchen had plenty of cooking utensils, cutlery and glassware, a dishwasher, washing machine and rotary clothes line outside. The gas BBQ was also a great addition for alfresco dining. It was a pleasure to use the facitlities. The AC in the gite was very welcome and we also enjoyed the option of Netflix for a film in the evening on occasion. The terrace was partially shaded and had a great dining table plus addtional comfy seating and was very private. The pool was heated, there were plenty of sun beds and shady areas if it got too hot! The Gite was very secure and perfectly situated to travel around this beautiful area. There was also a number of books/leaflets of places to visit in the Gite, which were very useful. The property has easy access to the Canal du Midi, perfect for a bike ride, we loved watching the boats go through the locks. We have had the best time and found it to be everything we could have wished for. For us, it was a real home from home and we would be happy to return and recommend to our friends and family.

Tres Bien!!!! Had such a lovely long weekend. As a group of 6 we were worried about who could accommodate for us. Les Petites Ecuries was perfect for us. Carol & Andrew made our stay so comfortable and welcoming. Stunning views of the garden and canal from the back windows and the mountainous backdrop from the front! Clean and fresh - literally home from home. We will most certainly return!
Great Location with perfect hosts

Excellent stay

This is the third time we have stayed here and can honestly say we had a great time on all 3 occasions. if you are looking for a relaxing break just to get away from everyday life this would be ideal as it sits along the canal which is great for a morning stroll or bike ride. the bikes are free to use.Yo can even try your hand at a bit of fishing. Carol made sure we had all we needed and if we needed any help this was no trouble. we shared the pool and this wasn't an issue the other guest were really nice, polite and quiet exactly what you need for a quiet break. Would i go back after 3 times i most definately would and have already booked to return next year. Looking forward to seeing Carol and Andrew again. Thanks for your hospitality
“Amazing Gites, A Home From Home”
12 August 2014
Me my husband our 3 children (12,5 &1) have now had our 3rd visit to Petities Ecuries. These Gites are amazing. They are situated in a stunning area surrounded by friendly locals. The gites themselves are flawless, they were spotless when we arrived and contained all we needed and more. Our children are never bored whilst we are there, games of table tennis, swing ball, boules and majority of time taken up in the pool, there is even a range of indoor activities of games and consoles for a rainy day. I spent many afternoons reading on the patio whilst my Husband and children played football or went for bike rides. Carol and Andrew are amazing hosts, they provided a cot, highchair, buggy and much more for my 1 yr old, which helped a lot. The gites still look as they did 3 years ago when we first stayed, they are kept clean, up to date and well maintained. The owners Carol & Andrew were fab and we cannot thank them enough they were always around to recommend where to go to eat or visit. My 1 yr old fell in love with their chickens and dog Louis, often going with Carol to collect the fresh laid eggs every day, their customer service is faultless. We have already booked up to return next year and are counting down the days

Even when its cold outside, this is one fantastic place to stay!! My family (mum Dad and the 2 children had such an amazing holiday and cannot wait to return in the summer.
The gite was very clean and spacious, with everything we needed and loads more (games for the children, Wi console, WIFI internet, hundreds of TV channels, We went to the Carcassonne Christmas markets, the centre square was one big ice rink with the fountains massive ice sculptures, it was amazing.
As a couple we could see ourselves enjoying a summers evening together once the children were in bed watching the boats on the canal from the Baa Baa Bar at the bottom of the garden. The facilities in summer looked really good to keep both children and Mum & Dad happy, especially the pool and the bikes.
A big thanks to Carol, you made our holiday amazing :) Would 100% recommend to family and friends.
Happy New Year Carol and Andrew
