Back to rainy London, we (family of 2 adults, 3 kids of 9, 6 and 4) already miss our perfect (summer) holiday in the Lauragais. The other reviewers below already mentioned the high standards of the property (from the house interior to the pool, grounds, covered games section, etc), as well as the perfect location to exercise body and brain: close to quite a few beautiful and historical French towns (the closest being Soreze and Revel, but Albi and Carvcassone within a 1 hour car ride), but it also very near family-friendly riding facilities and water sports (10 minutes away in the Lac St Ferreol) and close to Toulouse (where families can spend some time on the Space Center). We are already trying to figure out when can we return and meet again our perfect hosts Lynne and Robin.
Our family holiday at The Stables 19-26 July 2014 was the PERFECT choice. The accommodation proved to be 'home from home' comfort with a very well equipped kitchen, really comfortable beds and extremely clean in all areas. Plenty on offer in the grounds but an essential, well maintained pool with lots of sun loungers. Lots to see in the nearby interesting villages, including lakeside. I had a painting lesson from a (patient) local watercolour artist! We will return in the summer season but out of season will tempt us back to visit the skiing area...then back to the log burner in that lovely lounge! The coast is a great day out and so was our visit to Albi. Can't thank the owners enough....we certainly made the right choice.
We have just returned from two fantastic weeks in the Lauragais. The house was perfect for us as a family (2 adults, 3 kids, aged 10,8,8). It is beautifully and thoughtfully renovated, well decorated and equipped. The pictures don't do it justice! The outdoor covered area was superb, making outdoor eating/living very easy. It was also very private and not overlooked. The swimming pool area was of very high quality and again we were impressed by the thoughtfulness of the design of the shaded area, including poolside fridge. Everything was very clean. The gardens are large and very well kept, it was beautiful to look out on as well as large enough for our kids to roam and play in. The covered area for games was great for when the sun was too hot, although would also be good for wet weather too. The owners, Steph and Jules, were very welcoming and quick to help with any issues or questions we had.
The area is rural France although the nearest town is only 5 mins away by car and has all the amenities you need. It also has a fantastic market on a Saturday morning. Lac St Ferriol is also a very short drive away and we spent two wonderful mornings playing/swimming in the water there, there are water sports as well if you want that. Carcassonne is only 40 minutes away, busy and touristy but well worth a visit for its Disney inspiring turrets!
This is a superb place to stay, we are keen to return and would highly recommend it.
Nous avons passé un séjour magnifique dans le Lauragais. L'accueil est excellent, les prestations de qualité avec le sens du détail.
L'endroit est calme, reposant, le gîte est extrêmement bien aménagé et décoré.
L'extérieur est également très bien équipé, les enfants ont apprécié la table de ping pong, le terrain de badminton, la mare, et l'immense jardin et sa piscine.
La région offre de nombreuses possibilités (visite culturelle, randonnée, sports divers, gastronomie, etc...)
Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse, et nous y ferons un autre séjour prochainement.
Notre séjour au gîte Le Laugarais a été excellent. Très belle maison, bien décorée, très bien entretenue et avec toutes les commodités. Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de connaître Stéphanie, qui était absente, mais avons trouvé Julian très sympatique, efficace et discret.
Nous sommes six amis a avoir aprécié ce bel endroit que nous recommandons vivement a tous ceux qui ne veulent pas se tromper sur leur choix et veulent passer des bonnes vacances!!.
Merci Stéphanie et Julian; on espère y retourner pour pouvoir profiter aussi de votre beau jardin et belle piscine.

Having read some of the other reviews of this property, it's clear that everyone finds it an exceptional place to stay. We had a week in the Lauragais in August 2012 and concur with the other gushing reviews. It's really all about quality and attitude. The owners Stephanie and Jules haven't stinted on the furnishings or on the decor and insist that the place is at its best for every visitor. The space available is excellent with a large well-equipped kitchen and extensive living areas both inside and outside the gite with the covered, shaded area just outside the front door being a lovely place to relax on an evening. The grounds and pool were much more than we had expected and the extras of fridge, toilet and hot/cold shower by the pool were much appreciated.
