“Thank you very much Nicky & Mark, another memorable holiday in Fitou gite. Pool, Games Barn, BBQ all used fully! Great days out, we will be back!”

The Taylor family
Thorney, England, August 2015

“A lovely chilled 2 weeks in every respect apart from the weather which was gloriously hot! With grateful thanks to Mark & Nicky for being excellent hosts; for organising the Bastille day trip to Carcassonne; the chips; the loan of sun umbrellas for the beach and the many useful bits of local information – a holiday to remember for all the right reasons.”

“Many thanks to you Mark & Nicky for making us feel so welcome on our arrival at DdeB & for your help in suggesting places to visit. Our gite was first class, an excellent base from which to explore this interesting region. A super relaxing two weeks, supported by the superb local wine.”

“Quite simply the best we have been to! Thank you Mark & Nicky for your great ‘hosting’ – something we have not experienced anywhere else. We all have had a wonderful visit to this part of France. The village market and evening meal are a ‘must’ if you like a fantastic night out. The meal on arrival & Paella night – brilliant! Kids loved the pool & games barn – enough not to visit the med beaches!”

“Rented the four gites for the week and had a great time with our children and grandchildren. Weather very good so spent most of the time in the pool. Loved the rural setting surrounded by vineyards. We all had a week to remember – a bientot.”

“Thank you so much for a lovely week. Communication during the booking process was really good. At all times you made yourselves available for any queries and went above and beyond what was expected. The gites are beautiful and comfortable. Would highly recommend to others and would love to come back one day.”

“Quiet definitely the best holiday we have had in France to date. Fitou apartment was terrific with everything we could have needed. The play barn, outside play area was perfect for our children catering for ages 4 to 14. The pool was superb and gave us loads of happy hours. We were lucky enough to be joined by 2 other families with similar aged children so we barely knew the kids were with us at times! The area has some fantastic places to visit and we did everything from castles to zip wires, beach to boat trips. We have witnessed some truly outstanding scenery. What more to be said? A big thank you to Mark & Nicky for their friendly hospitality which made us feel so welcome & provided us with loads of ideas for things to see & do. We have not exhausted the list and hope to return before soon.”

“What a lovely break with our family friends the Campbells; enjoyed exploring the area, meals together in the courtyard; fun in the pool; the local fete evening and canoeing on the Aude – the rapids weren’t too scary – just a little bit exciting – great fun! Thanks Mark & Nicky for all your kind hospitality.”

“Mark & Nicky – we had been looking forward to this holiday with our friends for a long time – and it was well worth the wait!! The children have been in their element for the past two weeks & we have enjoyed every precious moment here. We have felt very welcome here, relaxed from the start. Thank you for everything, we hope to be back some day.”

“Had a ball – delighted with our summer holiday choice with amazing friends. The setting was awesome- hosts amazing. Very chilled. Lots to do – fab part of France – wine wonderful and non-hangover inducing!! Great Paella, well worth being waited on. Would recommend Domaine de Barthe, especially to groups of friends who want to chill out together.”
