Luxury holiday gites sleeping 18 with a swimming pool and games room, for big group celebrations near Toulouse

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Manzac d'en Bas, Castex, Ariege, Midi Pyrenees, France, sleeps 4-18 in 9 bedrooms.

Manzac d'en Bas is the ideal place for a family summer holiday (including three generation holidays) or a big group celebration such as a birthday or wedding anniversary.

Manzac d'en Bas consists of three very spacious gites - L'Ecurie (which can sleep up to 4 people), La Grange (up to 8) and Le Logement (up to 6) which have all been renovated to a high standard and combine traditional charm with comfort and modern amenities. In total, there are 3 kitchens, 3 sitting rooms, 9 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.

The gites can be rented individually, but a group booking taking all three gites results in exclusive use of Manzac which may be preferable.

In addition, during the mid season months of May, June, Sept and Oct, the gites are available for activity holidays - such as painting and yoga.

Manzac d'en Bas is set in truly beautiful countryside with stunning views. It is extremely peaceful and relaxing and while it appears to be relatively remote, it is in fact near essential amenities, (supermarkets, restaurants) and lots of great things to see and do, and less than an hour from Toulouse, a really lovely city. Alternatively, it is the perfect place to relax and unwind, including next to the swimming pool.

When it comes to a big group holiday, this configuration of gites has some major advantages over single building accommodation :-

1. Everyone has their own separate spaces for certain activities (childrens' supper, watching a film, childrens' bathtime for eg) or relaxing in peace and quiet.
2. Three fully equipped spacious kitchens make it easier to prepare meals including 3 fridge/freezers, 3 cookers, 3 dishwashers.
3. Three separate hot water systems mean you never run out of hot water!

In addition, the facilities on offer at Manzac d'en Bas include a 13x6m swimming pool, a studio/summer games room, a 'braai' fire pit, barbecues and a two acre garden with a variety of outdoor spaces to relax, play, eat and socialise.


There are 3 fully equipped, spacious kitchens all with dishwashers, cookers, fridge freezers.
There are 3 dining rooms, 2 of which can seat up to 14 people each. Ideally, in summer, everyone will be outside where there are ample facilities.
There are 3 separate sitting rooms, all with a TV monitor, DVD player, books, games and children's toys.
Each gite has a TV screen and a DVD player and an HDMI cable (for Netflix for eg). There are CD players, though streamed music is now more convenient.
The gites have WiFi connection throughout and good mobile phone coverage at the front of the gites and in the garden/swimming pool.
There is a 50m2 games room with table tennis. This room, which is separate from the gites, can also be a party room for music and dancing.
Each of the gites has a wood burning stove (although they are not normally needed in summer!).
In total there are 9 bedrooms (3 doubles, 4 twins, a triple and a single room) All en-suite except the triple and single rooms which share a bathroom.
All linen, including bathroom and swimming pool towels, are provided and are included in the price.
There are eight bathrooms - 7 are en-suite, and 1 bathroom for the triple and single room (childrens accommodation).
There is a ground floor twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room for anyone who has difficulties with stairs.
