We were an adult family of 5 and stayed for 2 weeks in the Oleander cottage with our friends staying next door in Mimosa. Having undertaken a few holidays in France we have experienced a range of properties, areas and things to do. Without a doubt this was the best of the lot so far. The property was very pleasant, had all the necessary comforts and most importantly for us, given previous experiences, was extremely clean. The property is situated in a wonderful location, with superb views over the hills (you can see the Pyrenees in the distance) and a fantastic pool and patio area. We had many a leisurely breakfast and evening meal up at the pool looking at the views. Night time, laying on the sun beds and looking up at the clear night sky and the milky way was a great experience; take a good pair of binoculars for observing day and night!
If you want to get out and about and explore Cathar country the location is just about perfect. We tended to travel out every other day and visited Saissac, Carcassonne (twice as it was so great), Fanjeaux amongst others. Without a doubt one of our most memorable days was walking to the four castles at Lastours, It was truly wonderful and will be one of those abiding family memories.
Overall this is a wonderful holiday setting and we thoroughly recommend a holiday at Mestrugue.

Wonderful holiday! We have just spent two very enjoyable weeks in Mimosa gite in Mestrugue. After a long journey from Portsmouth in England, we were pleased to find our accommodation to be inviting, clean and cool inside, despite the gloriously warm temperatures outside! The heated swimming pool really made our holiday special and we made good use of the barbecue for many outdoor meals. The walk in shower was wonderful. Mimosa proved to be an ideal base for a holiday. It is situated amongst spectacular scenery, there are fields of sunflowers and you can clearly see the Midi Pyrenees in the distance. There are many place to visit in the area, such as the medieval town of Fanjeaux; Carcassonne is an easy 30 minutes drive away. The castle is a must to visit, but go early to avoid the other tourists. Languedoc is a beautiful region of France with numerous vineyards. We chose to visit Domaine Le Fort and sampled wine before we made our purchases.

A great location, brill accommodation and pool. The property was in an amazing location, very peaceful with fantastic views of the local countryside, and towards the Pyrenees. Listing totally spot on, the property was well equipped, and maintained. A lovely family are on site with lots of help about the local area. Great pool area away from the main house, we can not wait to take the family back there. Very close to lots of very interesting places, Carcassonne, Canal de Midi, Mirepoix, great markets, lots of history, lovely vineyards especially the restaurant at Gayda. Definitely all worth a visit.
Superb stay, already booked to return 06 August 2016
Outstanding holiday, we were a 3 generation family staying in the two cottages. Our hosts were generous with their time and charcoal and invitation to Mus's which is a must if you are there. The apartments were clean bright, beautifully maintained and we wanted for nothing, the only time the kids made a fuss was when we went to leave, the youngest 3 preparing to stay on and learn French and Dutch. Great location, great views great hosts, we had a wonderful time so much so we have booked to return this summer (2017).

Wat een rust, wat een adembenemend uitzicht. We hebben hier echt een geweldig fijne tijd gehad. Een prachtige gite! Verder is alles wat je maar wenst aanwezig : zwembad, rust, zon, zonnebloemen (heel veel in de omgeving), wasmachine, vaatwasser, internet. In de nabije omgeving herten, roofvogels en een vrij toegankelijk bos. De eerste buren op circa een km afstand, dus echt volledig rustig. De bakker en supermarkt in het dorp op circa 5 km. Een ware aanrader. Overigens verbleven wij in gite Oleander.

Superbe gite bien agencé et pourvu de tout le necessaire. Pour qui aime le calme, l'endroit est fantastique avec une vue a couper le souffle. Du gite, deux terrasses permettent d'apprécier le paysage en toute quiétude.

Zalige vakantie gehad, boven aan de top heb je een magnifiek uitzicht vanop je terras of aan het zwembad. Adembenemende stilte, alleen de natuur. Oleander was mooi en functioneel ingericht. Er was alles aanwezig wat je nodig had. Twee daagjes hebben we wat pech gehad met het weer, maar voor de rest hebben we zonnig weer gehad. Mooie uitstappen gedaan, genoten aan het zwembad, alles wat je van een vakantie mag verwachten. De kids hebben een leuke tijd gehad. Wij komen zeker nog terug!!
