Luca Santagostino stayed at the French Rural Retreat with his family in August 2017:
"We had the opportunity to spend a week at the French Rural Retreat thanks to Ilonka.The place and its surrounding is perfect for a week with the kids, quiet at night, with activities during the day at any driving distance, and the hosts of the property are amazingly charming and welcoming. The property is stunning. Ilonka, from The Little Voyager, has been an invaluable resource in helping us. She understood perfectly what we were looking for and suggested us the perfect spot. We trusted her once and we will certainly do so again.
Thanks a lot The Little Voyager for your help! Amazing!"
Elaine Donovan stayed at the French Rural Retreat with her family in June 2017:
"My experience with The Little Voyager, and in particular Ilonka, was nothing short of perfect. My husband and I took our 2 year daughter to The French Rural Retreat for 5 nights. We wanted something kid friendly, no fuss, relaxing and beautiful. It was all of this and more. The family who own and run it are fantastic. They were so welcoming and we really felt at home from the moment we arrived. Our daughter would have gladly staying there all day long, as there was big safe gardens to run around, friendly cats, a fairy house, a playhouse full of toys and most importantly a trampoline! (We now have to get a trampoline!!). The room we were in was gorgeous, really one of the most beautiful rooms we've ever stayed in. If we didn't have a toddler we would have enjoyed sleeping in more!! The village is sleepy, which suited us, but there is a lovely restaurant that we went to twice, once with our daughter and another night on our own as we were able to book one of the family to babysit for a couple of hours. We took a few day trips in to neighbouring Carcassonne and other towns that the family told us about. Everything was very close. We were really looking for somewhere to relax, and somewhere where our daughter could run around, and somewhere where we could sit out in the evening other a glass of wine after her bedtime and no be too far away from her. This ticked all the boxes and more.
Thank you Ilonka, we were certainly be going through you for all of our family breaks in the future."

"En Agosto del 2018, hicimos un viaje con mi pareja y mi niño de casi 2 años, para Francia recomendados por Ilonka, al “The French rural retreat” nos quedamos cinco días y estuvimos como en casa, con todas las comodidades necesarias para desconectar con nuestro pequeño sin tener que preocuparnos por nada más que disfrutar, de un maravilloso jardín con una cama elástica de donde mi pequeño no quería salir, los dueños una pareja muy amable y cariñosa con los niños que nos facilitaron nuestra estadía en todo momento. Gracias Ilonka por esta gran recomendación y esperando nuestro próximo booking :-)"
