We have just returned from Le Sarrail and WOW, what a fabulous week we had! Luxurious accomodation in one of four gites in Montréal, close to Carcassonne.
A wonderful heated pool, with a wide selection of pool toys provided, was often our first port of call each morning. A leisurely breakfast on the terrace soon followed – with warm buttery croissants bought from the local bakery in the nearby village.
Our grandson, age 3, was then refuelled sufficiently to roam the beautiful gardens, bounce on the trampoline, have fun in the enourmous play barn, enjoy a swing or three and then spend some time cooling off in one of the play houses. Le Sarrail really is a haven for children but not in a loud or organised way. The tranquil setting, overlooking the Pyrenees, was appreciated by all of three generations holidaying together.
Becky and Phil are THE perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. They were unobtrusive but always on hand if needed and provided us with some excellent recommendations for trips and restaurants.
If, like us, you want all that your home offers (and more!!) from a holiday then look no further. I spent weeks researching for luxury accomodation that would also be suitable for a three year old. Le Sarrail is it!! The spacious gites are chic, retro and oozing with all the extras such as egyptian cotton sheets, perfect pillows, beautiful rugs and all the gadgets you will need. Pack nothing for your children as its all here – baby stair gates, toys, books, games, cots, high chairs….. and everything else you can think of.
Its close enough to Carcassonne to be able to visit for lunch or dinner or just to amble around this amazing place. The Canal du Midi is also closeby and we spent a leisurely few hours on a hired boat with our three year old “captain”!!
This wonderful find certainly rates as one of the top places we have found to holiday with young children. Hopefully I will save you from researching too much – it really is a little gem.Idyllic – it doesnt get much better than this
