We had a fantastic stay

This is a lovely house set in beautiful countryside. It is very peaceful and relaxing. There are nice small towns nearby and Toulouse is an easy drive away. The pool is lovely and clean plus there are bikes and table tennis to use. We had a fantastic and relaxing 2 weeks and would recommend without hesitation. Thank you Jayne!  

Summer 2020 - 5 star review

Everything as we wished for !

Holliday was fantastic!Everything as we wished for!
Notre séjour s’est parfaitement déroulé. Nous avons profité de l’espace proposé par la maison, de la piscine plus qu’agréable et du calme de Mazerac.
C’est avec difficulté que nous avons quitté la région et pris la route de notre quotidien Rhône-alpin.
La maison a répondu à toutes nos attentes.
We really enjoyed our break at Mazerac.  The house is lovely, well equipped and super open plan downstairs. First house we’ve been to with a loggia which would be very useful if weather not great.
Also, sport facilities great. Good quality bikes ( they often do not live up to the promise in other places we have stayed), table tennis v popular and a really good sized pool.
We would love to come back here again in future years

Summer 2020 - 5 star review


We have not long returned from a wonderful stay in this magnificent property. The house, pool and stunning views were beyond our expectations. The house is very large, spacious & well-appointed; the pool is divine and the setting is very peaceful & private. 
This was a trip which was booked for 2020 and we would like to express our sincere thanks to the owners & Jayne(admin/font of all knowledge!) for patiently & generously transferring our booking year on year. 
Jayne was a very helpful person, dealing efficiently with all our queries and we are indebted to her. 
A fabulous experience for both of us.

The week is Mazerac was so relaxing. Despite seeing our first ever rain in your part of the world it mattered not a jot and the week simply zipped by. At the end of the week we concluded that it was the nicest house we’ve stayed in in France since we started renting in 2002. We would love to be able to return. Our friends were equally charmed by the house and the whole area.

"We had the loveliest time in Mazerac. We loved the peaceful location of the house right beside the church and with wide views over the French countryside. 
The house is enormous, with 3 bath/shower rooms, and a large open plan family room, everywhere with stone walls and tiled or wooden floors and big windows and shutters which were essential to help keep the place cool. 
We enjoyed the loggia where we ate most of our meals, and had the added bonus of watching a pair of swallows raising their young in a nest in the eaves.
The salt water pool was fabulous, with good quality loungers and seating.
We loved the local area and found people very friendly, in the shops and little bar in Puylaroque and in the local boulangerie with its fabulous bread and pastries and a little cafe which was perfect for a coffee before the (rather strenuous) cycle back up the hill to the house.
We enjoyed a lunch at the restaurant in the woods, very good value and atmosphere, and our favourite place to visit was Saint Antonin Noble Val (about half an hour away) a lovely medieval village which had a brilliant Sunday morning market as well as an evening “marche gourmand” with an amazing array of food and wine from local producers. Our very favourite restaurant there was La Table  d’Antoine, but there were lots of options.
Overall, this was a brilliant place to stay, and we would definitely love to come back".

Very sad to leave

 We had a very happy stay at Mazerac and were very sad to leave. It was a beautiful spot and extremely well situated for a very peaceful and relaxing stay. We loved it.
We all felt the house set-up, eating areas and pool were fantastic and what a view!

We also loved seeing the wildlife from the terrace areas, Deer, Hares, Egrets, Buzzards, Kites, Lizzards, Swallow Tailed butterflies and a Praying Mantis, amongst other creatures and every night at 9pm, we had 5 fledgling swallows which came in to roost in the rafters over the terrace for the night!  Heavenly.
Please send our best regards to the owners and say how much we enjoyed our holiday. 

There is so much to see and do in the area, one week really wasn’t enough!

This was our third stay !

This was our third stay at this house !. 
We have stayed at a number of houses in the area over a number of years, and this is our favourite. 
The house has been superbly renovated, and is very comfortable and excellently laid out. It is in a very attractive and peaceful location, and enjoys some stunning views, with local amenities a short drive away. 
We spent much time at the pool and surrounding terrace, which are delightful.
