Yes, there are still those places that can enchant you. Far from the crowd, nestled in beautiful surroundings, Julian and Nigel offer two beautiful gites. Everything decorated with taste: the house, the gardens, the swimming pool. And then the view of a beautiful sloping landscape and the Pyrenees. You never want to leave. A really nice place to stay.
We stayed in L'Ostalet for a week in August and we so enjoyed it. From the initial booking Julian and Nigel were so helpful with information, via email then in person, about supermarkets, best routes to take, where to eat etc. They were welcoming but discrete hosts who clearly enjoy sharing their home with guests. The cottage was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The children loved the pool but we also loved the pretty gardens, views and the stillness and quiet of the surroundings. We would love to return as there is so much more to see and do in the area.
We stayed in l’Ostalet this summer for three weeks, having been there last year for two. The house is beautifully finished and well equipped with enormous attention to detail, for example fans, pool towels and plenty of crockery/cutlery for eating at home. The gardens and pool area are immaculately kept, and Julian and Nigel are welcoming hosts who give lots of local information about what to see and do. There are many places to visit nearby. Highlights for us this year were Cité de l’Espace, Grotte de l’Ombrives, Andorra and the Pyrenees. But we also spent many relaxed days at the beautiful pool enjoying the breathtaking views. Quite simply, we love this place and can’t wait to return.
The property is excellent with a large airy living space downstairs and two very comfortable bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. It is very well maintained to a very high standard the pool and grounds are excellent and the views fantastic. The hosts Julian and Nigel are great being both very hospitable and happy to provide advice on the local area. The welcome basket was much appreciated. We hope to visit again very soon.
This property is located in a very quiet area approximately 70km to the south-east of Toulouse. There are wonderful views of the Pyrenees. The local area is composed of undulating countryside with many ridges and valleys with lots of woodland. There are many small villages and hamlets in the area each with their own long history.
We stayed in Loustalviel L'Ostalet which is a very comfortable Gite. The standard and comfort of the accommodation was great. At ground floor level there is a nice sitting room, very well equipped kitchen with dining area, large bedroom and en-suite. The beds are very comfortable.There is a further bedroom and en-suite at first floor level. The grounds are beautiful and the outdoor pool is a great amenity.
Our hosts - Julian and Nigel - were very welcoming and gave good recommendations of where to visit and eat. They have made sure that the accommodation of both this and the other Gite are to a very high standard. They also upon request provided a dinner on our second night which was lovely. Their wine recommendations were spot on.
In all we stayed for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed. I cannot speak to highly of this place!! We hope to return for a further stay.
