We really enjoyed our stay with Joanne and Jon. Clean and well equipped gite. Everything you need to cook at home or go for a picnic.

Joanne and Jon are great hosts. The fridge was even filled with beers, water and eggs when we arrived. Thank you for the superb location and great service. We really enjoyed it.

Quinten and friends , 

We have had two excellent weeks at La Caze. The gite had all we needed and made a good base for exploring this beautiful area. We loved the plateau and the Tarn. We did 3 randonnees from the app "Rando Grand Causes" recommended by Joanne. Some nice lunches out, especially Sunday lunch at the Relay du Chateau in Brousse le Chateau where we also visited the castle. Many many thanks to Jo and Jon for their hospitality.

The Williamson family, 

Back again for another superb 2 weeks!! With Covid-19 we were unsure we'd make it over here, but so lucky that we could. Trips to the velorail again and La Table de Josephine. Plenty of bike rides and walks with wonderful views.Topped by a night of delicious table d'hote food.Thank you so much Joanne and Jon!

The Reeves family, 

Thank you for a very nice stay in this gite. A great view, the swimming pool and the BBQ!

Family Ablas, 

This is the first time we've stayed at La Cardabelle and it was everything we had hoped for! Comfortable accommodation. great facilities and fabulous hosts The kids basically lived in the swimming pool which was so nice during the hot weather. There is plenty of fun to be had at the lakes a few minutes up the road and kayaking and swimming in the Tarn River as well. The local scenery is spectacular and the views from the swimming pool itself are awesome! Joanne and Jon are fabulous hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them - they made us feel very welcome. Thanks for a lovely holiday - we will be back!

Kevin, Ali and family, 

An excellent week in a lovely gite. Great dinner Jon! Best ever view from a pool 😊

Ivy and Peter, 

We greatly enjoyed our stay in La Cardabelle!

It was wonderfully peaceful, the gite was spotless and very comfortable, the view breathtaking, and the swimming pool a joy.

Thank you also for all the advice on the area, where to get bread, lunch, dine etc.

Cyril, Beatrice and family, 

What an amazing holiday! Thank you so much Jo and Jon for being so friendly and helpful. We stayed for 2 weeks at La Violette with our 12 and 10 year old daughters and it was perfect. The girls and I loved the pool, which has THE most amazing view, and my husband enjoyed the hills for his ultra marathon training! We also managed several family bike rides. We took our bikes down with us, but there are adult bikes to borrow at the gite. The gite was clean and had everything we needed. There is also plenty to do in the area (if you can tear yourself away from the pool) - Roquefort, Millau Viaduct, canoeing down the Tarn, Velorail to name a few. Can't fault La Violette and La Caze Gites in any way. We will certainly return.

Amelia Reeves, 

4th visit, still brilliant, the meals were amazing and Jon and Joanne even more so - can't wait to come back!

Ruth, Mike and family, 

Wow, what a rural idyll! A little piece of paradise. A warm welcome from Joanne and Jon. We hope to be back next year.

Robinson family, 

It was a pleasure staying in your beautiful gite. What a view and we loved the pool. We love the Tarn region, it's amazing.

Peter, Rosa and family, 

Decouvrir un coin de notre pays grace a des anglais! INCREDIBLE! Merci pour votre accueil, pour vos bons soins. Le gite est absolument confortable. Like at home! Vous nous avez donne envie de revenir mais plus longtemps.

Claire, Herve and family, 

Wij willen jullie enorm bedanken voor de mooie vakantie. La Violette is een gezellige gite waar alles aanwezig is an een top vakantie te hebben.

Op jullie advies bezochten we Albi (Tour de France), Brousse le Chateau, St Rome de Tarn, Asseynes, St Affrique (market), Millau, Castelnau. Ook het meer van Villefranche de Panat was leuk.

Met het mooie weer hebben we ook volop genoten van het mooie zwembad


Lies, Geert and family, 

Eine wirklich aussergewöhnliche schöne Ferienwohnung mit aussergewöhnlich freundlichen Vermietern. Die Ausstattung ist perfekt und weit überdurchschnittlich, dazu alles von bester Qualität. Die Inneneinrichtung ist sehr stilsicher und mit viel Liebe und Knowhow gestaltet. Auch im Aussenbereich stimmt alles, vom Pool und den Liegen bis zu den zahlreichen Spiel- und Sportmöglichkeiten. Das alles in prächtiger NAtur mit einem atemberaubenden Ausblick ! In der Nähe sind kleine französischen Juwelen zu entdecken (z.B. Brousse-le-Chateau oder das Valée du Tarn); für die z.t. spektakulären Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Gorges du Tarn, Albi oder Touluse sollte man einen Halbtages- oder besser noch Tagesausflug einplanen. Joanne und Jon stehen mit Rat und Tat zur Seite - wirklich klasse Typen, und Jon kann auch noch gut kochen. Wer la France profonde liebt, ist hier genau richtig. Gesamtbewertung: hervorragend !!

Alexander & Birgit, 

We've spent 2 happy weeks here with wonderful weather. We visited interesting and pretty villages in the area - Brousse le Chateau is particularly charming. Shopping at the supermarkets in St Affrique is good as is the Saturday market. Joanne and Jon have been such good hosts, helping with routes and cooking us a couple of delicious meals- to mention just a few of the many ways they've made this a holiday we will cherish for years to come. We didn't know this part of France before now. We love it!!

Eric and Lesley, 

Beautiful view, wonderful scenery and a lovely comfortable gite. Everything we could have wanted was supplied including the welcome pack. Our meal on our last night was delicious. Thank you Jon and Joanne very much for a very happy experience.

Chris, Sarah and family, 

3rd visit and an absolute pleasure as always, especially Jon's delicious meals. Looking forward to next year already!

Ruth, Mike and family, 

Thank you Jon and Joanne for your hospitality. Another lovely stay. So relaxing! We particularly love the lake at Villefranche de Panat - fab day out! See you again soon.

Sue and family, 

Just the most relaxing, chilled holiday. Our second visit to the gites has been a delight. Enjoyed every moment! Thanks Jon and Joanne

Julie, Mark and family, 

Thank you so much for a fabulous stay. We loved the gite and the pool. The gite is very well equipped. Jon and Joanne are fabulous hosts and we loved the meal cooked by Jon. Our favourite attraction was the Velorail - we'd love to have another go. We will definitely be back one day.

Sam, Chris and family, 

We had a wonderful week. Our 3 boys enjoyed the pool every day (thanks Jon for every day cleaning). The house was very nice and more than complete. We thank Jon and Joanne for their warm welcome and from now on we are in love with this Tarn region!

Sebastiaan, Marlies and family, 

Thanks Jon and Jo for such a fabulously wonderful time! You made us feel so at home and we had a fantastic meal. We went on a great canoe trip, hired electric bikes, and had an amazing time swimming in the pool, lakes and rivers. It was superb at La Caze Gites and we highly recommend it!

Joss, Julia and Sophia, 

Thank you for some wonderful days in La Cardabelle. We have enjoyed every single moment in the gite and in the area. We will recommend the location to friends and family. So nice and homely - we love it!

Lotte and family, 

Second time and another lovely stay thanks Jo and Jon

Eric , 

Tres bon sejour, accueiller tres chaleureux. Merci pour votre hospitalite.

Bruno, Sylvie et famille, 

All the comments are so true , a lovely part of France and so peaceful. The gites are very good and the views from the beautiful swimming pool are fantastic. Joanne and John are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. What ever your interests from bird watching, photography or just exploring the wonderful French villages you won't be disappointed

Chris bull, 

Tres bon sejour a La Caze. Cadre tres agreable, hotes super sympa. Nous esperons pouvoir revenir entre amis des que possible!

Romain and friends, 

What a fantastic location. We had a very enjoyable week and managed to see some great places. The gite has everything - we enjoyed some great meals at home! Jon and Joanne are brilliant hosts. We shall return and recommend to friends. Relaxing and enjoyable break - this area of France is a hidden gem!

Sandy and Euros, 

Our 4th visit but the first stay in La Violette. The gite has a friendly feel and we immediately felt at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and could happily have stayed for longer. Despite being here before we were amazed at how much more there is to see and do. Planning to return once more.

Nick & Mandi, 

Joanne and Jon: thanks for your hospitality, we had a perfect stay in your gite! We used it as a 'base camp' for visiting Millau (including viaduct), Rodez, Lodeve, La Couvertoirade. Why has this beautiful departement been neglected by tourists? The gite had all the comfort we needed and Jon is an excellent cook!

Jan Kees & Annemarie, 

A great week away with friends. The lakes offered a wonderful opportunity to stretch our legs and take in the scenery! Jon and Joanne were the perfect hosts, ensuring the gite had all the necessary essentials, producing fabulous dinners and making us feel so at home that we didn't want to leave....

Kate and Derek,

Breath taking views
Totally relaxing
Nice weather
Perfect holiday
Pictures cannot possibly show you how good our stay was or how much fun we had
Thanks jo and John

Eric , 

We have had the most fabulous week at La Violette. Jon and Joanne have been wonderful hosts, full of great suggestions on places to go and experiences to try - the highlights including the 14km canoe/kayak trip on the Tarn. The gite was thoughtfully equipped with lots of attention to detail, e.g. a decent steam iron, lots of ice packs and plenty of towels, plus lots of pool toys, ping pong and boules for the children, and Paul enjoyed cycling to the shops for our daily bread. One week wasn't enough!

Emma, Paul and family, 

Nous avons passee une semaine tres reposant dans ce gite tres accueillant "La Violette". Baignades tous les jours, entre la rivière du Tarn, le lac de Pareloup et la superbe piscine. Le plateau du Larzac et les Gorges du Tarn sont a un peu plus d'une heure de route mais cela vaut le corp. En resume de tres bonnes vacances, nous revendrions. See you!

Anne-Sybille, Nicolas et famille, 

What an amazing place! Jon and Joanne really make you feel immediately welcome. We will be sure to be back very soon!!

Sue and family, 

The most amazing holiday! Wonderful hosts, pool, Gites and spectacular views. The welcome meal was delicious - would highly recommend. Some great local attractions - we particularly loved the lake at Villefranche de Panat. A very special holiday - can't wait to come back.

Angeline, Stephane et famille, 

We had a lovely week. The gite is lovely. Jo and Jon looked after us very well. Enjoyed the meals!

Angela & Warren, 

La Cardabelle is like a home from home with everything you need and more. Jon and Joanne are wonderful hosts (and amazing cooks - we thoroughly enjoyed the meal they prepared for us) so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. This is our 2nd visit and we'll be back again next year. It's been a lovely break, we don't want to go home!

Mandi & Nick, 

What a wonderful few days in a little corner of paradise. Jon and Jo are such great hosts, really helpful and also leaving us some privacy too. A perfect combination. Oh, and an absolutely delicious dinner, thank you! A beautiful place, well appointed and so relaxing. We can't wait to be back. For longer!

Jo, Rich & family, 

We have had a lovely stay at La Caze. The gite is very comfortable and so well equipped. Our hosts could not have been friendlier or more helpful.

Julie, Paul & family, 

A wonderful two weeks at La Caze. The gite was just right, the grounds were lovely and the view was AMAZING! Had some great days out, but it was just as nice to potter by the pool, eat Joanne and Jon's delicious food and check out those stars at night!

Carrie, Steve & family, 

Thanks for a superb week. What wonderful hosts and absolutely everything provided including all sorts for our children of varying ages. Delicious meal thanks to both Joanne and Jon and with the luxury of not having to leave the premises!

David, Scott, Kirsty & families, 

Thanks Joanne and Jon for a wonderful holiday at La Caze. The house was just lovely, clean and everything we needed provided. We spent a very relaxing two weeks here and will be delighted to recommend this as a delightful base for visiting this region. Amazing views and the children had lots of fun in the pool and playing ping pong and boules. WiFi and satellite TV a big plus for the teenagers!

Noreen, Jeff & family, 

Amazing view and perfect pool for active boys. Great area and lots to do around the house.

Orla, Craig & family, 

As good a holiday as we have ever had.

Betty, Stewart & Judy, 

We have had an amazing week at La Caze. Jon and Joanne were great hosts and cooked us a lovely meal. The pool, boules and the view are great. We will come again!
