Guestbook comments from the owner
The villa was amazing and how you have equipped it for the children was fantastic!The biggest thing for us about the villa is it was all safe, so our 18 month old could wander about and we knew she was secure within the boundaries of the villa. I really cannot put into words how great all the stuff you had there for the children!!



We really enjoyed ourselves and I used the french cooking book on more than one occasion and managed to produced some good French cuisine!



So a massive big thank you to you and also to Jeanne and David too, who were most helpful.

Great villa for families with young children

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in Villa Wisteria in May 2012 and had a great time. The villa was spotless and really well laid out, with a lovely large living space and good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. It was perfect for us (2 families each with one toddler) as the villa was extremely well kitted out for young children - cots, high chairs, cutlery, toys - and all one one level with fences around the pool and the property boundary, so it was completely safe for the little ones to roam around. They loved it!
The pool was a bit small, but fine for the babies to splash around in, but more of a plunge pool for adults rather than one you can swim properly in. The village was a 5 minute walk away, and provided the basics. Other attractions are a car ride away, from 30 mins upwards.
Overall it was a great holiday in a relaxing spot. There are other villas in the same area (gated), but no disturbance at all from them.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

  • 5 of 5
The villa was absolutely beautiful and so thoughtfully furnished. We had all we needed for our little ones and can only thank you for a wonderful holiday.

The villa and the pool were spotless and we have absolutely no complaints here. Everything was clean and tidy and Jeanne and Dave were wonderful! They were so very helpful and kind and 'on call' for any questions. Our thanks also go to Jeanne who organized a small essential shop for us. They are wonderful people and really looked after us and the villa.

The villa itself had absolutely everything we needed - we didn't have to bring anything! Our kids (1 and 3) had a brilliant time and were safe at all times. The house is very beautifully located and we enjoyed our time here.

We would also like to thank you, Cora, for the easy and pleasant booking part of the holiday. All went so smooth and without any trouble and we are happy to recommend your villa to everyone we know :).

Wonderful Villa Wisteria

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Villa Wisteria, Durban-Corbieres, was extremely enjoyable and relaxing. Our welcome on arrival was warm, friendly and helpful. The villa is spacious, clean, well equipped and beautifully situated. Located in the French countryside it is within easy reach of beaches, the magnificent Carcassonne, towns for shopping and only a half a day's drive from Barcelona. There was plenty to occupy all the family. We would certainly recommend Villa Wisteria as a holiday destination and will be returning ourselves.
