Amazing!!
We've stayed for a week with our family from the Netherlands. What a beautiful place! Enjoyed the hot tub and BBQ every night. Spend the hot days at the pool and went exploring on the cooler ones. Amazing area with loads of opportunities. Ali and Matt were great hosts and the BBQ with campfire they organised was a great touch. Couldn't recommend more! 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

The most magical place we’ve ever stayed. Luxurious and spoiling.
From start to finish we had a heavenly stay , on arrival the hot tube was ready with the lovely wood smoke sailing out the top of it. Soaking in it after a long day driving was pure heaven. The gite is beautifully set up , lots of kids toys and loads of blankets and towels and everything you could possibly need. It feels like a family has lived there before. Every thing is beautifully laid out , fresh flowers and spotlessly clean. The photos don’t do it justice at all. We had fresh eggs and croissants delivered by Ali everyday and the children were delighted with all the animals. We picked mushrooms in the hills and hardly left the area because it was so peaceful and relaxing. Top tip is get a massage ! Pure heaven. What a magical stay. Thank you thank you for everything Matt and Ali - longing to come back already - but it’s getting booked up for next year !!!! x

Magical magical place
We had the most amazing weekend staying at La Taillede - it was all we hoped for and more. Matt, Ali and the kids are brilliant hosts and the setting is just perfection. Our gite was beautifully and comfortably equipped and the views are simply breathtaking - especially sunrise (a quasi religious experience every day!) From the fresh pastries to the donkey walks, stunning pool and massive trampoline, everyone in our family found their niche and was so well looked after. Thank you!!

Increíble lugar
Hemos ido por segunda vez y esta vez hemos dormido en Gite Cnigou dos noches. Mejor no se puede estar, el lugar es perfecto para descansar, disfrutar y respirar aire puro. Y lo mejor de todo: bañarte en la piscina de agua caliente de noche mientras miras las estrellas. Ali y Matt anfitriones perfectos, thanks a lot! Repetiremos seguro.

FABULOUS !!
Our family of 5 had a phenomenal two week late summer stay at gite Canigou. Ali and Matt have created a really great place to relax and enjoy nature ! The gite itself is spacious enough for six people, kitchen is efficiently stocked with necessities. Beautifully decorated - rustic luxury. The hot tub was ready for us as soon as we arrived and we enjoyed it after every hike in the glorious surroundings of Mas La Taillede. The spacious terrace found us dining outside when weather permitted. The Mas has a beautiful pool, terrain de boules, play area for kids, donkeys, animals, chickens. It’s really a haven for nature lovers. We were there with friends who were in the yurt and gite carlit - both fab places too ! Ali and Matt host a delicious vegetarian dinner weekly where guests enjoy each other’s company late into the night around a campfire. Ali organizes yoga by the pool, massage, and nature/art workshops for the little kids. I can’t recommend Mas La Taillede enough. And I can’t wait to get back there !

Exactly what we'd hoped for!
WONDERFUL Christmas week. Gite Canigou and La Taillede was everything we had hoped for and more! Fabulous scenery, great accommodation and wonderful walks - with and without Rocco and Tai's help! Look forward to coming back and hopefully next time we'll be able to test out the local restaurants and socialise!

Excellentes vacances !
Notre séjour de deux semaines dans le gite était parfait ! Le gite est tout confort, perdu dans la montagne, parfait pour les amoureux de la nature et du calme ! Les hotes sont particulièrement accueillants et font tout pour que le séjour se passe au mieux!

The best half term ever!
What a fabulous time we had. The Gite is extremely comfortable and the hot tub is just the best thing. Late at night star gazing from it, afternoon looking out across the stunning view in it....we want one! the beds are comfortable, the water hot and plentiful, the animals friendly and fun. Lots to do around and about and the hosts are heaven. Our 2 grand daughters did not want to leave.... we will be back!

Perfect Family Getaway
Ideal home away from home. Gîte Canigou was perfectly set up for our family of five. The kids enjoyed all the animals at the farm, plenty of trampoline jumping and were kept busy for hours. We all loved enjoying the freshly baked and delivered croissants on our beautiful deck, relaxing in the wood-fired hot tub, meeting our neighbours at the Wednesday night community suppers and just taking in the amazing views. There were so many beautiful towns nearby to explore, each with something unique and always with an outdoor pool! La Tailede was the perfect home base to explore both hiking in the mountains and relaxing at the beach. Matt and Ali were wonderful hosts and always more than happy to help with an itinerary suggestion or a booking. Wish we could go back tomorrow!

A Luxury Mountain Escape
This was an idyllic location to spend 10 days of late summer family holiday away from the ‘rat race’. We were welcomed by the impressive panoramic views of this beautiful part of France and immediately knew it was going to exceed expectations. Gite Canigou (our lodge) was spacious and light with special touches like the traditional wood fired hot tub to laze in with a glass of local vino! Truely amazing experience. The three bedrooms were comfortably arranged with adequate separation between kids and adults to enable plenty of ‘own space’ but close enough to enjoy family time. There was even a stock of board games to escape the device heavy world we live in. Ali and Matt (the owners) have created a simply sublime holiday escape which is close to nature but also not far from local cafes and restaurants in Corsavy and Arles-Sur-Tech. I have to finish by saying that our two children (aged 11 and 9) fell in love with the animals on the wider property (sheep, pigs, chickens, goats, donkeys, cats and of course the incredibly friendly dogs). We’ll definitely be back many more times!! La Taillede is our new favourite holiday destination.
