My wife, 5 year old daughter and I stayed here in June of 2012. We stayed in the gite furthest from the main house (approximately 600 square feet) and had a wonderful time in the Rainey pyrenesse. The gite included a downstairs room with 2 twin beds and an upstairs room with a full or queen sized bed. Moria and... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in June 2013 in the last gite away from the main building. Pros: Excellent location for walking, birdwatching and nature lovers. Hosts were very helpful and have a lot of local information. Good value and tasty food. Gite overlooked a lovely river. Cons: Accommodation is in need of a little care... More

The gites have an excellent view out of the back windows. In ours both the living room and bedroom windows opened directly of the river and weir at the back of the property, just lovely.

This hotel is so lovely and is a perfect base for a relaxing ski holiday. Although my husband and I stayed here in February 2012 half term, there were few children at the hotel which is something I look for in a holiday, being a teacher! Although this place is also child friendly as there was a nice family with... More

We stayed at the Auberge earlier this year for a ski break and we had an excellent time. Mike and Moira are extremely friendly and helpful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Mike kindly helped us out with our snow chains and directions to the local ski resort called Guzet. If you’re into skiing, this is the perfect... More

This is the ideal spot to go skiing in France. Forget the Alps - Guzet is a wonderful resort which is a mere 40 minutes drive from the beautiful Auberge de l'Arac. Mark and Moira are extremely hospitable with great tips on where to go for skiing and what to eat at the Auberge (I'd recommend the Magret dish although... More

We stayed in one of the gites associated with this inn and were so happy there my husband and I are counting the days until we can go back.

We stayed in the small self contained cottages which back straight onto the river. Lovely location and easy access to some great walking trails in the Couseran. Ate one night at the hotel - no complaints. Place needs an injection of money and love for it to reach its real potential. Current uk owners are looking to sell.

Maybe I shouldn't call the Castet a backwater, but here, the gites actually back onto the water! It's beautiful - just lean out the window and watch dippers dive and wild trout swim by. Mike and Moira have got the formula right. The gites are simple but cosy; clean and comfortable, decorated with a Northern taste in mind. As hosts... More

Having meticulously planned our road trip through the South of France we decided to stay somewhere in the middle of nowhere to get away from the hustle of the cities.
