Nestled amongst lush vineyards and stunning landscapes, the traditional French village of Ferrais Les Corbieres provides a scenic and serene destination for a family holiday.
Within reach of beautiful Mediterranean beaches, the foothills of the Pyrenees, medieval towns such as Carcassonne and plenty of family attractions, Honeysuckle Cottage is part of a small group of cottages, designed completely with families in mind.
Retaining much of its original character and charm, Honeysuckle Cottage is hidden in a jasmine and honeysuckle covered walled garden and combines the best of both worlds; expect tranquil family privacy, but also an opportunity for little ones to make friends in the shared gated pool, whilst you relax amongst the gardens, enjoying a glass or two of delicious local wine.
Plus with a super helpful owner on-hand to help you with anything you need, including organising special treats such as pampering days, wine tastings and cookery courses, the only thing you’ll need to consider is what to enjoy first!
Croft Family, May 2018
A hidden gem - Honeysuckle Cottage, was charming, rustic, pretty, and benefited from the most welcoming host, Honor. Nothing was too much trouble for her, and she went out of her way to make sure we had all we needed. The location and the accommodation itself has plenty for kids to enjoy - from the playroom stocked with toys, to the shared pool, and lots to see and do nearby.

We were lucky enough to stay her for a week this September. The gite was beautifully presented and every possible amenity had been included - from a picnic hamper to baby monitors and nespresso machine. The gite is located in a lovely village, with an excellent artisan bakery and a useful village shop and Tabac. There are a large number of fantastic places to visit nearby, and beautiful beaches within 30 minutes drive. Honor, our hostess, couldn't have been more helpful. Terrific stay and we hope to be back one day.

Had a fabulous time in this lovely safe location as 2 beautiful gites and 1 lovely cottage are behind a security entrance door which makes it a perfect little gem of a holiday hide out. Within easy walk to the village with lovely restaurants, and not far from the old city of Carcassone so ideal location. Honor was a perfect host and look forward to going back.

Part of a group of three gites, Honeysuckle Cottage sits in its own private garden and is spread over two floors, offering plenty of space to relax in.
Indoors you’ll find a lovely open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, ideal for whipping up some family dishes using fresh local ingredients, whilst you keep an eye on your tots as they enjoy working their way through the toy box. The property also has free WiFi and is well equipped with everything you will need for a blissful holiday.
When bed time arrives, tuck little ones up in the adorable twin room, before retiring to your own beautifully spacious double room to throw open the French doors and enjoy a relaxing glass of something as the sun goes down. There is also a bathroom with a fab walk-in shower, ideal for cooling off after a day out in the sunshine.
There is plenty of room for cots, so little guests can feel right at home too, plus access to a separate utility room which has a handy washing machine and ironing board available.
Outside, the cottage is hidden away in a ‘secret’ walled garden, covered in jasmine and honeysuckle. You’ll have access to a barbecue and a lovely outdoor dining area where you can sit and relax in the sun.
Moving through the gardens you’ll find the large communal pool, which has a safety gate to keep tots safe, and the trampoline area which is just perfect for play. There are plenty of sunbeds and shady areas dotted about, plus some lovely outdoor seating areas which are perfect for reading, eating, or enjoying a refreshing drink, as you savour a quiet moment whilst your little ones play.
The owner also has a very fluffy and friendly dog named Bob who is really calm, and just loves to make friends with all the young guests who come to visit (The dog is not allowed access inside any of the gites or private areas).
