“A stunning house - simply magical ”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here for 2 weeks as a group of 10. The views, pool and accommodation were all stunning. The house is perfectly appointed with majestic views across the Pyrenees, we were lucky enough to see some fabulous pink sunsets. It has everything you need for a house that is quite remote, good quality wifi, Sky TV, amazing kitchen with double oven and American style fridge freezer, dishwasher etc. The three dining areas are perfect to chase the sun or shade whatever you prefer. The pool and covered outdoor seating area were a delight where most of us spent our time either relaxing in the sunshine, playing board games in the shade or swimming wonderful laps in the gorgeous pool.
A wonderful place for family and friends to gather. Remote enough to really relax but close to Limoux and the city of Carcassonne to venture out if you fancy it.

“An oasis of peace, stunning views and space”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a memorable week here with my mother, sister, 3 adult children and partners to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. There was something for everyone. My mother and sister watched, Edwardian style, from the shaded pergola above the tennis court cheering on the young players sweating it out in the summer heat. There was a lot of lazing by the beautiful pool contemplating the stunning view of the Pyrenees and long languid meals in one of the 3 eating venues.
No one showed much inclination to move - the young really enjoying the peace and space after their hectic lives in the city- but when we did the owners recommendations were excellent and we had a memorable visit to a family vineyard and some good meals in Carcassonne although found the old city terribly over touristed - a real relief to return to Les Hauts de Gaubil.
Do note .....this is not a boutique hotel, rather a family home of character, full of books, pictures and family memorabilia with the usual signs of a well loved and used family home shared with others. How amazing to leave a larder full of items for general use! My sister and I did a bit of a sort out in our attempt to find a pepper mill - the only item that seemed to be missing. The bread oven needs an expert as my son's attempts at pizza making ended up in the 2 good kitchen ovens as they failed to get the former hot enough. Otherwise everything was there and worked.

Dear Heather
Thank you so much for your very kind review and we are so glad that you really enjoyed your visit. We have tried very hard to provide a family home for our guests so that they really do feel at home here and we are glad that you found the tranquility beguiling. I always think that being here is good for the soul although we do find it very difficult to drag ourselves away here!
The pizza oven is something of an art to use as it does not have a vent in it. To use it you have to take the hot coals direct from the BBQ and line the edge of the oven with them. It provides an instant heat with which to cook. We will from now on add further advice to the house booklet. Again many thanks.
Do let us know if you ever want to come back.
With kindest regards
John N-L

“Stunning views, wonderful facilities, a family home atmosphere, private yet not remote”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

As returning guests having stayed here for several years very impressed by the major improvements and continued renovations. Pool side facilities added this year, together with comprehensive lighting around pool, gardens, driveway and tennis court and terraces. Also major upgrades to accommodation and new kitchen and bathrooms. In the annexe a new attractive private terrace has been created off one of the bedrooms. The whole property is equipped more like a family home than a holiday rental. The grounds are extensive with stunning views over towards the Pyrenees. A number of vineyards and places to eat are a short drive from the property.

“An exceptional holiday destination”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the sixth property we have rented in France and we can only say that this is by far the best. Its situation offers wide views as far as the Pyrenees as well as extensive grounds for walking. We were a family group of 14 aged 16 to 80 and there was plenty to do for everyone. The well maintained pool and diving board were in almost constant use and the excellent tennis court with practice wall was used when it was not too hot. The teenagers made full use of the table tennis table and the boule matches were very competitive. We also enjoyed hearing them playing the grand piano.
We ate extremely well. Couples and the grandchildren enjoyed taking it in turn to provide gourmet meals prepared in the very well equipped kitchen.
The accommodation was spacious and of a very high standard in terms of quality and cleanliness. It was well equipped with books to read for all tastes, some board games, tennis racquets and balls, table tennis bats and balls, gym equipment (which we did not find time to use) and plenty of towels for the pool.
It is a good centre for exploring the Cathar Castles and many villages as well as Carcassonne. Our party went wild swimming, visited a grotte and enjoyed the challenges up in the trees at the Parc Acrobatique Forestier at the Complexe de Loisirs Raymond Chesa.
We were all sorry to leave at the end of a marvellous fortnight and would gladly recommend this property to our friends.
We would also like to thank John and Lisa for their help and consideration for our enjoyment.

“Wonderful views, beautiful home.”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just returned from a wonderful two weeks staying at Les Hauts de Gaubil and we are already planning our next trip. A beautiful home and stunning views!

I cannot think of anywhere I would rather spend a summer evening than sitting on the terrace admiring the beautiful view. I had an idea of how amazing the view would be but the photos just didn't do it justice, you have to see it to believe it! Truly amazing! I would recommend to anyone!

We had everything we could want and our room was perfect! Les Hauts de Gaubil was even better than we imagined.

Something for everyone. We had a wonderfully relaxing trip and would thoroughly recommend.
