“Fantastic house in beautiful village”
We stayed at Maison Cruzy early Sept 2013, there were three couples and one toddler and we all thoroughly enjoyed the property and its fantastic amenities, everything was there to make you feel at home. There was bags of room and plenty of space so you didn't have to be in each others pockets and plenty of areas to eat as a group. In short, we loved it and would definitely go back if we were to visit the area again. Thanks to Paddy and Emer for providing us with a great holiday destination. Kim
Response from the owner Thanks so much Kim for taking the time out to leave your lovely review. Great to see you all enjoyed Maison Cruzy and everyone got on well and there was enough room to get a bit of peace if needed!! Would love to see you back in Languedoc in the future. Kind regards, Paddy & Emer.
We have just spent a wonderful two weeks at Maison Cruzy. Its a lovely house - a true home from home, amazingly equipped both in the house and outside in the barn. Situated in a lovely quiet village surrounded by vineyards in a stunning part of France. Absolutely Perfect!
Response from the owner Emma, thrilled to see you enjoyed your family holiday in this truly authentic pocket of the Languedoc region. We would love to think we will see you again in Maison Cruzy where we guarantee the region will continue to surprise as it does annually for us for many years! Cheers, Paddy & Emer.
“Superb family house and superb location- thanks for a fabulous h”
In spite of a late arrival with small very tired kids and a small miscommunication on key location to gain access to the property (promptly sorted by local rep 'Jess'), we were all thrilled when we saw inside Maison Cruzy. It is an extremely spacious and light property very tastefully decked out to a high standard. There were 4 double bedrooms, 2 of which had adjoining rooms with daybed - ideal for families and 3 bathrooms all kitted out with power showers. There are 2 sitting rooms with an expansive selection of Dvd's for both kids & adults which was a godsend on the bad weather days. The property has a fantastic layout with a small walled courtyard attached to kitchen - ideal for al fresco dining, leading on to a massive barn which was a haven for the kids (and adults too!) during our stay. Filled with badminton court, table tennis, pool table, darts, boxing bag... We had lots of fun playing in here and even did a 'mini Olympics' for the kids. There are many bikes and helmets available to use and although not ideal for small children, the adults had a wonderful time doing some road biking in the beautiful surrounding villages and vineyards. The pool is set within a high walled garden, gets the sun all day and yet is well protected from any wind. It was unseasonably cool during our stay and the pool is not heated but this didn't seem to prevent the kids from enjoying a splash. Cruzy is a small town but had a local boulangerie for fresh croissants/bread each morning as well as a small grocery store. There are a couple of lovely restaurants within the locality 10 drive away, Terminus highly recommended. The surrounding areas are fantastic - there really is something for everyone... 1/2 hr drive from beaches, 45 mins from Carcassonne, vineyards everywhere, roquebrun for mountains, walking & kayaking and some of the best road biking we've ever done! Paddy, Emer, Jess & Miles were very accessible and helpful with lots of a advice/recommendations. A superb holiday!
Response from the owner Fiona thank you so much for your wonderful comments........you were so kind to take the time out to give such a detailed review.....We were thrilled to see everyone enjoyed the simplicity of the French lifestyle in Cruzy and that Maison Cruzy worked out well. Please do keep us in mind for a return visit. Thanks again. Paddy & Emer.
“Off peak family break”
We had a week at Maison Cruzy in mid March (with our 3 children), which was absolutely lovely. Despite it not being hot and sunny, we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and spent many hours just reading, watching Dvds and playing games...as well as taking full advantage of the culinary delights that the region has to offer. The house is home from home and Paddy and Emer made every effort for it to be an utterly stress free stay, giving us loads of tips on places to eat and see. The house is extremely well equipped and the play barn was a huge it too. We would love to return to the house and will recommend it to friends and family. We had a lovely, chilled family break in preparation for returning to our usual hectic lives. Thank you!
Response from the owner Paul & Iona thank you very much for posting your review of Maison Cruzy......great to see you chilled out and the children all enjoyed the break. We hope you get a chance to return in the fine summer weather....Thanks again. Paddy & Emer.
“If you think the photos look good - wait 'til you stay there - g”
We're not long back from a glorious two weeks in Maison Cruzy. 10 of us in total (aged 7 - 77), really tested the capacity of the house - amazingly it didn't feel at all cramped, though you will of course have to plan a little as to who goes where. For all the chefs, the kitchen is very well equipped, ready for the wonderful produce of local markets. If there's anyone who can't survive without good wifi, you won't have to worry about withdrawal symptoms. We spent a lot of time enjoying the wonderful pool area, but the barn was a huge hit with the children (old and young), with so much to do there when the sun got a little too hot. The village itself is very quiet with a good bakery and butcher, but a car is essential. There's a lovely restaurant (Le Terminus) about 20 mins easy walk out of town. We thoroughly enjoyed our day trips to Roquebrun for river kayaking , mediterranean garden, and great family lunch (and views) at le Petit venice. Gorge d'Heric is definitely worth at least one visit (more if you've time). Minervois is stunning, St.Chinian market really good for picnic fare, Beziers has its own charm, Champs Blanc vineyard was sampled and approved of but no doubt there are many great ones, and some of us had a wonderful time horseriding near Bize Minervois (L'Appaloosa - lovely people) while others preferred bathing in the river there. Paddy and Emer were really helpful to us with information before we got there, and their man on the ground, Miles, could not have been more helpful and unobtrusive. The house has great old style Languedoc charm, with lots of original features. The inner courtyard table is a great family hub for happy nights watching the swallows/swifts with a nice glass. Treat yourself!
Response from the owner Thanks Sinead for taking the time to write such a superb summary of Maison Cruzy and the surrounding hot spots. Great to hear you all thoroughly enjoyed your holiday in Cruzy. Hope to see you on a return visit. Kind regards, Paddy & Emer.
“Absolutely beautiful home from home!”
We stayed here for a week with 3 adults and 2 children aged 6&7, the house was fantastic for us. We were spoilt for choice with the number of bedrooms, and bathrooms, all delightfully presented and very clean. This is a stunning French property and you can't help but admire it when you stay here. The owners kindly leave it very well equipped, everything you need is at hand, the kitchen has a great big dining table and leads straight onto an enclosed courtyard with another large dining table, just perfect for evenings spent catering for yourselves. The pool is a great size for kids with plenty of space around it for them to play, and the barn are was wonderful, a safe area locked from the pool where again the owners kindly leave plenty of games and toys for use during your stay. Can't fault it at all!!! Beaches we went to from here were Valras Plage and Serignan Plage, both lovely in June, I understand Valras Plage becomes rather busy in high season. We ate at La Sallette in Bize (on the main road back towards Carcassonne) and had a great meal, and Les Grand Buffets in Narbonne is well worth a visit for a fantastic all you can eat buffet! We went to Carcassonne on the one cloudy day we had and visited the castle, ramparts and medieval city, again well worth a trip. Lovely house, made for a lovely holiday!
Response from the owner Hi Anna, thank you for your kind review of our home. We are delighted that you found it a home from home as that is exactly what we are aiming for. The area is also full of many many treasures to see and do but it has taken us many years to discover them all and perhaps a more detailed printout of nearby villages and their activities would help our visitors. Another new addition to the area just outside Quarante on the road to Capestang is Chateau des Carrasses which has a great restaurant in a beautiful setting. Hopefully you will return soon to Maison Cruzy when we will be happy to accommodate you once more. Kind regards. Emer & Paddy.
“Terrific accomodation for our family of 4”
Despite the unusually chilly weather, we had a wonderful family holiday at Maison Cruzy in May. The house met all of our needs very well in terms of comfort, location, space and style. All the basics were covered off beautifully: beds were comfortable, linens were lovely, rooms were spacious and bathrooms modern and well designed. The barn was a saving grace for our boys on rainy days. The village was interesting and no more than a 10 minute walk away are paths that crisscross gently rolling vineyards. We appreciated the architecture of the house and had memorable meals in the courtyard. When the warm weather arrived, the pool was terrific. The owner's assistant in the village was very helpful and we appreciated his efficient but warm welcome. We stayed for a week. Maison Cruzy would also be an excellent base for a longer holiday - there is so much to do. We easily travelled to Carcassone, l'Abbaye Fontfroide (beautiful, a good place for lunch), les Gaufres Cabrespine (very cool cave), Minerve and Narbonne. The countryside was gorgeous. So all in all, a great place to stay: style, comfort, space, traditional but sensitively restored architecture, loads of fun and learning for he kids, all without spending a fortune on accommodation.
Response from the owner Thanks Virginia for your very kind review notwithstanding that you were unfortunate to experience poor weather....great to see you all made the best of it and the boys enjoyed the games in the barn area. Look forward to seeing you all again. Paddy & Emer.
“A Superb Holiday Experience”
Maison Cruzy located in the heart of the Languedoc region in the south of France has much to offer. Year after year we have returned to the tranquil village of Cruzy to savour the delights of 'real French living!' Maison Cruzy offers a most spacious, comfortable and homely environment, where one can unwind. Spacious bedrooms, private roof terrace, swimming pool, and outdoor games area provides the entire family with their dream holiday home. Cycling, walking through vineyards, shopping in nearby towns and cities, sampling local restaurants while also experiencing the delights of the Canal Du Midi. It has everything to make for that special holiday!

“A true French holiday”
Maison Cruzy is a home from home.We have holidayed here numerous times and Paddy and Emer ensure that all you want is catered for.It is a large ,beautiful and very comfortable house.It is lovely to stay in such a bright modern holiday home.The children adore the pool and the large play space in what was the old barn is fantastic for playing badminton etc when the day is too hot or at night.We love dining al fresco in the courtyard.If as an adult ,you would like to escape for a little peace and quiet you can always sneak up to the roof terrace,a little bit of heaven !The location is great,only a short drive from Carcassone and close to many interesting and beautiful places(Narbonne,St,Chinian and Roquebrun with it's lovely river.),See the true France.We love to stroll through vineyards and along the Canal Du Midi.There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby but our favourite is Bruno's ,just down the road.There is no doubt but you will have a fantastic holiday in Maison Cruzy.
Response from the owner Hi Martina, thank you for your very generous review.....great to see you all enjoyed Maison Cruzy and it's surrounding area and we look forward to hopefully your return to Cruzy in 2012. All the Best, Paddy and Emer.
