This place is absolutely wonderful! Emma has added lovely touches which makes it feel both homely but has the wow factor when you walk in. This is our third visit and we intend to come again and again. Thanks Emma

Beautiful apartment in a lovely location. We stayed only a short time, but would love to return and spend more time. Emma was very helpful with checking in, and communication was great. Highly recommended!

I've been following Emma's adventures at The House and the Hill via the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page and the website for over a year and was keen to visit while in the area. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Emma as she was in the UK on business, but her lovely friend and colleague Rose, who lives close by, looked after my friend and I very well, helping us settle in, and offering local knowledge and advice. The accommodation was very clean, quiet and well equipped, and the bottles of milk and water on arrival were appreciated. The location is ideal for walking, and visiting local places of interest.....or just lounging around on the private terrace should you prefer. The Loft is a really magical place; the wind in the trees at night and the sounds of the birds and toads were a delight. Hope to return.

We had a fantastic stay in Fosse at Emma's place. It was so quiet, peaceful, relaxing..... just what we needed. It's within easy commute to many Cathar historical places and other sights. The photos are exactly what you get in her place. Also, we have stayed in many airbnb places and this has been the best equipped of all we visited. Truly a gem and a real oasis.

Emma was a fantastic host, the place is idyllic - from the wood burning stove to the rain shower, you can feel yourself relaxing as soon as you cross the threshold. This is a very special place, a mindful haven! Returning to normal life feeling thoroughly refreshed - cannot recommend enough!

We spent 6 nights at the cabin and it was a wonderful experience. We were looking to have a relaxing vacation in the mountains and we got exactly what we hoped for. Since Emma was away for the week, Anne was our gracious host. She was communicative and did her best to accommodate us. The wood burner was difficult to get started when we first arrived and Anne tirelessly helped us to get the fire going. She even invited us over for a delicious Christmas eve dinner and we had the opportunity to meet some wonderful neighbors.
