Le Fitou - 3 bedroom Gite with garden and pool near Canal du Midi in Languedoc


Home Description

The Winemaker's House in Mirepeisset has two 3 bedroom Gites both with swimming pools and is an ideal base for exploring the Languedoc- Roussillon area. (See La Fleurie 1001873 for other Gite)

The LE FITOU Gite comprises one wing of the 18th Century Winemaker's House and was built from the old wine cave. LE FITOU comfortably sleeps 6 and is furnished to a high standard. It has its own private front entrance which opens into a foyer, which leads into the spacious beamed living room with two large windows overlooking the courtyard. There is Wi Fi, Cable TV and a CD Player. Off the living room is a separate laundry room equipped with a washing machine and toilet. Also off the living room is the fully equipped kitchen with oven, hob, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, etc. The glass kitchen door allows in plenty of light as well as leading you out to your private patio and the pool area. Adjoining the living room is a separate dining room with large window overlooking your patio, and the stairs leading to the upper floor. The master bedroom has a large window overlooking the pool and walled garden; the master bedroom is en suite. There are two twin bedrooms, both with windows overlooking the courtyard, and a large shared bathroom.
 LE FITOU is tiled throughout the ground floor, has parking facilities on the property with a gate, the windows have curtains and shutters, and is equipped with central heating for chillier months. There is a patio area for your private use, partly covered for shelter, if desired, from the hot sun. There are tables and chairs, a BBQ, sun beds with comfortable cushions and parasols. Linen and towels are included (and special beach towels can also be provided)
Besides your private patio, the entire garden and pool patio surround is also for your use. There are also pool toys and floats.
The swimming pool is a large 5 metre x 11 metre (17 feet x 36 feet), set into a beautiful walled & landscaped provincial garden. The pool & garden are a shared space with the friendly owners who live next door. The owners have a totally separate patio area screened from Le Fitou, but will be seen gardening and maintaining the pool. (We usually try to do this early in the morning or when you have gone off for the day!) As far as swimming and sunbathing go, the same applies…. we tend to use the facilities when you are off doing other things!

LE FITOU IS perfectly placed for the following activities: Beach, mountains, sight-seeing, Cathar castles, hiking, bicycling, boating on the Canal Du Midi, water parks, lakes, gourmet dining or lounging by the pool.

Truly fabulous!

We spent a family holiday at Le Fitou in July 2015 and I can honestly say it was one of the best we have had. Le Fitou is a charming and very well-kept property. There were only four of us, but it could have very comfortably accommodated six and it is very reasonably priced. Indeed, it considerably exceeded our expectations. The house is spotless and very well equipped with some nice little touches, including generous basic food essentials on arrival, vases of fresh-cut flowers, good quality linen and towels and plenty of toiletries. Every morning we would stroll to the lovely little village shop to buy delicious fresh bread and croissants. We would be back by the time the coffee had brewed. For an excellent choice of fish, meat, local fruit and vegetables there’s a good supermarket only a few minutes drive away and the gated parking directly in front of the house makes it all very convenient. At the back is a lovely private patio for relaxing and eating al fresco. For our 12 year old twin boys the very well maintained and good size swimming pool was one of the highlights. It is very safe and it is very quiet and peaceful, set in the pretty and well-tended walled garden. Other than on the few occasions when we could persuade the boys to go exploring the nearby towns and countryside they spent most of their time in the pool and rated it 10/10, both for fun and cleanliness. Although shared with the owners, you rarely see them as they are very discreet and only tend to use it when guests are not there. But when you do want to see them, Roger and Jane are fantastic hosts and always happy to provide excellent suggestions of places and nearby restaurants to visit. The white-water canoeing and a privately chartered boat trip on the Canal du Midi were great fun. For a change from the pool, there is some lovely nearby river swimming and the beach that they recommended at Narbonne was very pleasant and uncrowded. It has given us some lovely memories and the boys are already asking when we will be going back …

Fantastic 2 weeks

Nothing was too much trouble for Roger & Jane. They made us feel like friends rather than customers. When I wanted to take my son to see a Montpelier game, Roger even booked it on his card as I was having difficulty, as well as lending his golf umbrellas for the game! The gite was lovely, great location, the pool fantastic. Our gite shared the pool with Roger/Jane but this was not a problem, and gave us access to the much larger pool! Would definitely stay again, highly recommended.

Excellent on all counts!

We have just returned from a delightful week at La Fleurie. This is a modern comfortable gite tastefully renovated from an old barn with a nicely secluded garden and pool. Owners, Roger and Jane were on hand and were most helpful and welcoming with suggestions for excursions and dining out. Our welcome pack of groceries was generous and saved a dash to the shops on the first night which was very helpful. Wifi was also fast and reliable. This is a lovely house in a beautiful village and highly recommended.

Excellent gorgeous accommodation & location

Lovely accommodation. Jane & Roger are most welcoming and there were groceries in case we didn't make the supermarket. We had a most welcomed daily visit from their dog Lupin she's delightful. Local restaurant owner Vincent will take very good care of you and cooks fresh foods on the home fire. It's only a 3minute walk from Le Fitou. Overall wonderful holiday & would definitely recommend.
