5/5 Excellent

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the farmhouse. The family loved the beautiful pool which had the bonus of being Salt water. The house had everything we needed for a family of 6. The only negative was that one of the bedrooms did not have a window, luckily my son and his wife did not mind. It was rather more isolated than the photos suggested but we had a very relaxing time.

5/5 Excellent

An absolute pleasure!
Kim and Duncan are wonderful hosts and we were very fortunate to stay in their beautiful home. Everything is as listed and we wanted for nothing. A wonderful location , walking distance to a lovely swimming lake. Local restaurants, bar, a night market by the lake and White water rafting. Thank you so much.. Simon& Ali

Fabulous house for a family holiday
We were a family of 7 and all fell in love with this house. Kim and Duncan were absolutely lovely, giving good advice and left us many extras which were much appreciated. The Hameau De Mouche is quite isolated, perfect for a good relaxing break. We were there for the UK Spring Bank Holiday week which found some places including restaurants still closed. The pool area, table tennis room both excellent as is the BBQ area which we found most useful even when wet. Restricted WiFi is a disappointment to modern families. Ella the dog was a delightful companion for the week whilst we were outside.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic place, lovely couple, perfectly positioned
This is a fantastic place to spend your holidays. The buildings, surroundings, heated pool, facilities provided etc., are all top class. Each of the bedrooms is individually, subtly themed, 2 have ensuites, all are amply sized. There’s a fantastic upstairs seating are to relax and read. The farm house living area is beautifully laid out and decorated with many personal touches. There is an extensive library of holiday reads, DVDs and board games. The kitchen is a delight to cook in and the dishwasher makes such a difference - so much so, we ate in most nights... bringing me to the outside BBQ eating area... a wonderful area with a living ivy curtain giving it nice secluded feel. The other outside area - by the heated pool - is a great spot for lunch and drinks are always cold, thanks to the fridge. The pool itself is glorious, perfectly warm! The location couldn’t be better - loads to see and do in all directions within 30 minutes. Go further afield and you’ve Carcassonne (~1 hr), Perpignan (~1.5hrs) {if you like good wines go visit “Domaine Treloare”, you won’t be disappointed}, and of course Barcelona is only 3-4 hours away!! Finally, Kim and Duncan made sure our stay was perfect. Very available to answer any questions, or provide assistance. A delight to get to know them. We will be back.

Magnifique sejour en campagne dans une tres belle propriete
Nous avons passe une semaine tres relaxante en famille dans cette belle propriete. La maison est decoree avec beaucoup de gout et a tout le necessaire pour se sentir chez soi. Avec ses 4 salles de bain et 4 chambres (plus un grenier amenage), une cuisine toute equipee, un salon avec coin tele, une spacieuse salle a manger ouverte et un grand jardin avec piscine et pataugeoire, elle etait tres confortable pour un grand groupe comme le notre. Les hotes sont tres accueillants et a votre dispositon pour suggerer des chemins de randonnee et activites diverses. Le lac et le village de Puivert, accessibles a pied, permettent de varier les plaisirs meme si notre plus grand bonheur etait de nous relaxer autour de la piscine. Il y a aussi les chateaux Cathares a visiter, ainsi qu'une myriade d'autres excursions possibles. Allez-y les yeux fermes, vous ne le regretterez pas! Nous pensons y retourner l'annee prochaine.
