“A gem in the South of France”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in May 2015

My family and I stayed in the Hopkins Gite at Chateau de Montoussel. We were amazed at how picturesque and atmospheric it was. We had a fantastic stay. It exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return! Will went above and beyond to ensure our stay was the best it could be. He could not have been more helpful and is an excellent host!

“Chilled in the Chateau with perfect Hosts; Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We arrived on a Sunday when not much is open in France and Will arranged a great basket for us so we could enjoy our stay right away. The accommodation is perfect- clean, spacious and with great balcony views of the fields and world beyond. There is a private pool for your use that you will share with possibly one or two other residents; plenty of long walks possible as is as remote as you can get without going into mountains. Lots of places to visit around here with some good markets and a lovely lake with some good restaurants in the area.

Will and his faithful hound were on call for our needs, and he got the balance between 'being there' and 'not there' perfectly. The beauty of this break is that you can be as peaceful as you need or want to be in this spot, and you can easily discover social interaction and lovely French villages to mingle with the friendly locals as desired.

Highly Recommended

“Outstanding, stylish gite - beautiful location”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a wonderful find. We stayed in the Hopkins Gite. There isn't anything our hosts, Will and Karen hadn't thought about. The accommodation is extremely spacious, being traditionally furnished with a lovely French feel but with a contemporary twist. The colours used were fab, bringing the whole interior to life, with all matching accessories.
Nothing was too much trouble for Will, and we arrived to a bespoke hamper, pre-ordered before leaving England, allowing us to enjoy a relaxed breakfast the morning after arrival on the balcony.
The area surrounding the gite is extremely picturesque, and whilst in the middle of rolling countryside and extremely peaceful, is ideally placed to visit Toulouse and Carcassone. We drove out to the mountains with nearby ski resorts and also to the coast at Narbonne, allowing us to experience the vastly different landscapes. Nearby Revel has a bustling market and there are many pretty towns to explore.
Even in early October, the climate was kind to us, and we went home feeling refreshed after a relaxing week's break.
Certainly one to re-visit.

“a little piece of heaven amongst the sunflowers”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were greeted by Will, Karen and Baloo on our arrival at the stunning Chateau. Will showed us round our home for the week 'The Hopkins Gite' (a beautifully restored barn). The Gite was extremely comfortable, sympathetically restored and fully equipped with everything we could need (we would happily live there). The back of the gite and balcony look out over the beautiful countryside. At night time there is complete silence and it is pitch black...... a true place to escape to for total relaxation, peace and quiet. We spent evenings sat on the balcony drinking wine and enjoying the silence (and watching thetas and owls!). There is a lovely pool (a welcome relief from the scorching sunshine) and a fab table tennis table, hammocks and chill out zone. Will and Karen had even done a shop for us for our arrival so we didn't then have to go out and try and find a supermarket!
The Chateau although in the middle of the french countryside is in a great location for exploring. We visited many of the little villages nearby (Will was very helpful with ideas, suggestions and tips). We also visited Carcassonne, went to the coast for the day and drove through the mountains stopping in all the little towns. It is truly beautiful.
We cannot fault our stay here (only wishing that it was longer). Will and Karen are exceptional hosts and we hope to visit again in the future.
