« We all had a lovely time at Mas Orbiel and would certainly recommend this property to others. » Allen family
« We had a lovely time thank you - we've stayed in many properties in France over the years and I can safely say that Mas Orbiel was the best equipped and most comfortable. It was great being so close to Carcassonne as well. If you will have us again, we would love to return some day! » Connor family
« We had a lovely time at the property thank you. » Hadrill family - Richmond, UK
« We had a wonderful family holiday at the domaine, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend both the property and PureFrance.com to friends and family who may be looking for accommodation in the region in future. »
« Both properties were finished to an extremely high standard and provided luxurious and comfortable accommodation for all 15 of us (with some room to spare!). It was immediately apparent upon our arrival that a great deal of love and attention to detail has gone into making the domaine the place that it is, and we felt very privileged to be able to enjoy everything that the property has to offer. »
« Niall, Steve, Sue and the team made us all feel most welcome and allowed us to make the place our own for the week, which was great and made for a very memorable holiday that was enjoyed by the whole family. Many thanks to all for making this possible. » Ken Miller & Family
