5/5 Excellent

An oasis near the Black Mountains!
We had a lovely week in the gîte tucked away with its secret garden in Mazamet. Thank you so much Felicity and Martin for all your help. A perfect week weather wise and trips to Carcassonne, Lastours and the nearby lake were greatly enjoyed as was the day out to a nearby vintage car rally and car boot sale where we were the only Brits!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect holiday experiece
We stayed two weeks in Mazamet and explored the mountain area nearby as well as a number of nature and historical places around. The gite and the garden were just everything one wishes of a holiday home. Amenities of Mazamet such as bakery, butcherie etc. were just around the corner. Our hostess was very helpfull and provided us valuable information of the places worth visiting in the area. We fully agree with all the positive comments posted by the previous guests and highly recommend the Villa Wisteria for all those who look forward to a combination of an active holiday and a relaxing stay in a beautiful environment.

5/5 Excellent

Gite Wisteria - Perfect!
After two weeks of hillside rambling, rest and relaxation we fell in love with this Gite and this area of France. Felicity and Martin made us so welcome and provided lots of helpful advice regarding scenic walks and local events. The three-times weekly market is a delight for self- caterers with a couple of nearby supermarkets for everything else. A boulangerie is just five minutes walk away for your freshly baked morning croissants! The cottage is very well appointed and whether taking breakfast or returning from a day out, has a lovely private garden to relax in. The Tourist Information Office is very helpful for printed walking routes in English. Recommended excursions are to Carcassonne ( Old City ); Castres ( Goya Museum ); Revel ( Market ); Labrugiere and Soreze Medieval towns. There are plenty of hilly (some challenging! ) walks e.g up to Hautpoul but worth the effort for the fantastic views and beautiful landscapes. Also recommended are the nearby Lac de la Montagne Noir and the Lake at La Pradelles. For cyclists there is an easy ride along the Voie Verte, a flat disused railway track from Mazamet with charming villages along the way. Felicity and Martin provided lots of maps and information and with their local knowledge there will be no doubt visitors will see the best of everything the area has to offer, while enjoying being 'at home' in the cottage. We'll be back!

4/5 Good

Très bon séjour et très bon accueil
Bon séjour et conforme à ce que l on attendait. Les propriétaires sont bienveillants et toujours disponibles.

5/5 Excellent

très bon port d'attache...
Nous avons passé dans ce gîte une semaine remarquable en juillet: - Il correspond parfaitement à sa description - les propriétaires sont charmants, accueillants, serviables et très discrets... - le gîte est un vrai havre de paix: tout en étant en ville à proximité immédiate de toutes les commodités, il est au calme au fond d'un jardin fleuri et bien à l'écart ! - Si Mazamet n'est pas une ville particulièrement attirante en soi (sa splendeur est bien "passée" sa situation géographique est excellente et permet de rayonner dans un faible rayon dans des endroits à découvrir ou à revoir: Castres, Albi, Carcassonne...et surtout de belles randonnées dans les Montagnes Noires et leurs nombreux sites et lacs. A ne pas manquer Sorèze et sa collection "Dom Robert" et à deux pas de Mazamet ( 2 pas en hauteur) le village d'Hautpoul et "sa passerelle" himalayenne (toute récente) à 70m au dessus de la vallée ! Difficile de ne pas donner les meilleures notes à ce gîte. Je n'ai enlevé qu'une étoile pour la ville de Mazamet elle-même. Et je tiens à remercier pour Félicity et son mari pour leur gentillesse exemplaire et la qualité de leur accueil !!! Nous recommandons ce gîte sans aucune hésitation!!!
