Our family, with ages ranging from 10 months to 73 years, all enjoyed a lovely relaxing time - lots of space, indoors and outside, excellent pool, views, walks. Maps, books and toys in the gite - the train set occupied the children for hours! We had complete privacy but Emma was there when we asked for help. Thanks for a great holiday.

We had a wonderful week at Chez Hawkins! It's a really lovely, spacious house with a big, well-equipped kitchen and masses of room to relax in. The house backs on to the owner's own property which faces the little road, and on the other side you have a lovely garden that slopes up to the pool at the top. The pool area has spectacular mountain views, just as good as they look in the photo. Emma and John are very helpful owners when you want them to be (places nearby to visit, other local advice), but they're also sensitive enough to keep out of the way when you don't - for example, John cut the grass one day when we were out, not when we were in the pool. Would love to come back one day. Thanks to Emma, John and the boys for a super week!

I went to Emma"s house with my whole family including my baby and my parents and we had a fantastic time! The house is great, convenient, very light and comfy. The swimming pool is perfect and very secure thanks to the protection lid. It is very easy to access by car, there is a road that goes to the village, yet it is quite secluded and well-preserved. I love the region... Even when it rained, we had lots to visit, from Cathar's castles to exciting hiking path across the surrounding mountains. And Emma and her family are lovely... and they're all fluent in French! We had a wonderful time and we do hope to come back!

Maison agréable dans un petit village paisible au coeur des pyrennées. La maison est de plein pied avec des chambre en sous sol et à l'etage. Maison classique mais bien équipé avec un grand salon salle à manger. Les chambres sont basiques mais c'est pas là que vous passerez du temps! Le jardin est bien entretenu avec la piscine en hauteur vous laissant une vue incroyable. Il y a plusieurs endroits pour se poser dans le jardin donc très agréable. Nous étions avec des enfants en bas âges et c'etait parfait. Enfin, la proprietaire qui vit à côté est resté disponible tant qu'on en avait besoin tout en laissant une parfaite tranquilité.
