A piece of heaven in the French Pyrenees! My husband, 2 sons and I stayed in gite Canigou for 1 week and it was an amazing experience. The views are spectacular and the peace a quiet will have you relaxed minutes after you arrive. Our brand new gite was the perfect balance of old world with modern conveniences. Anything you need is there making your stay easy and comfortable. The weather was gorgeous and hot the week we were there but we stayed nice and cool in our cozy gite. The hot tub was such a nice touch, we all enjoyed it daily! The convenient babysitting service offered at La Taillede allowed us to enjoy a relaxing night out at the village creperie (thank you again Danny!!). Matt and Ali are fantastic hosts who are readily available if you have any questions or need anything. We were very sad to leave La Taillede and we've already started planning our trip back. Can't wait to be back!

Management response:

Thank you Katie! We loved having you and look forward to you coming back! All our best, Matt & Ali.xx

We rented the Gite Canigou last month and it was one of the best vacations we have had in ages. Upon arrival at the farm house we were greeted by the friendly owners and shown the Gite, which has been lovingly built and furnished. Thought and care went in to every detail and we were thrilled with the space. The gite is 3 bedrooms and will easily accommodate any family. Our kids loved the toys and books and the...HOT TUB. Yes, there is a private hot tub on the terrace. They have thought of everything! My husband and I sat in the terrace lounge chairs and caught up on our reading while our kids jumped on the trampoline and explored their surroundings. We hiked and explored during the day and at night we played board games and read. The kitchen was ample and had everything we needed to prepare our meals.The beds are incredibly comfortable and we found ourselves sleeping better than we had in months. The kids also loved meeting all of the farm animals and my four-year-old daughter cried...
