Dear Tim and Ally, Many thanks for a wonderful stay - you couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We loved our 4 days at Le Phénix. Thank you for helping us with transport arrangements when the 2 seater car couldn't transport 3! Thanks for taking in the bridegroom at short notice! And also for your fabulous breakfasts, lovely swimming...

We were recently in France for a family wedding and stayed three nights with Tim and Ally. They made us feel like friends of the family in their lovely house. The rooms at La Phenix are very comfortable and it was great to have a little sitting room at our disposal as well as a small kitchen for making a...

We stayed at Le Phenix for three nights as we were over near Rabastens for a Christening. We had an absolutely wonderful time; dinner on the first night cooked by Tim was just what we needed after a long day and flights - I would wholeheartedly recommend having a meal here at least one night of your stay. We slept...

A warm welcome in a beautiful setting - Ally and Tim are the perfect hosts and do everything they can to make you comfortable and feel at home. The evening meal was excellent and beautifully presented, the en suite bedrooms tastefully furnished in the Toulousain style and the beds so comfortable it was almost a shame to get up next...

We stayed here for one night in August as we were invited to our friend's birthday party in a nearby town. We were travelling with my grand-daughter so we needed a triple room (and had booked as such through booking.com). However, when we arrived someone had cancelled and we were offered that room for her instead of sharing with us....

We booked Le Phenix for a week in late July to celebrate my husband's Big Birthday. There were 13 of us ranging from 4-80. We all loved the beautiful, spacious house, and the large grounds and lovely countryside. The pool is fabulous, and the children spent most of the time in it, when they weren't on the trampoline or playing...

We had a lovely time here. I believe it is normally Chambre d'Hote (B&B) but for a few weeks in the summer they rent out the entire house, and we had four families here for a family celebration. The house is great. Lovely warm pool, table tennis table, huge grounds, lovely area, lots of culture nearby, nice local town with...

We stayed here for one night early July. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The room we had was great for our family - actually two separate rooms with connecting door. Very clean and well appointed. Had a really good evening meal, restaurant standard. Nice swimming pool with lots of toys for kids to play with (between the thunderstorms!)....

Rabastens has been a regular stop over point for us for years (largely to stock up on our favourite Gaillac wine) and this year we finally discovered Le Phenix. What a fabulous place for us to have a restful weekend! The rooms, house and grounds are beautiful and the food defies superlatives. We "ate in" both evenings and were so...
