Outstanding, just perfect!
We were warmly greeted by the owners and felt from the outset that nothing was too much trouble. The master bedroom is huge with an awesome view from the balcony. The château/house is as described but so much more with the hottest water anywhere we've been ( and we're well travelled!). If you want to get away from it all this is the place however, if you want a group holiday it's also ideal as it sleeps so many. We are thinking of returning for a group walking holiday. Lots of lovely French villages to potter around, not too far from.Carcassonne and for us, the spectacular views were what made it!
We loved it!!
We stayed here with friends and had a great time and i will be coming back again with the children and grandchildren. The property is lovely, on a hillisde with fabulous views of very pretty countryside. The main rooms are large and comfortable, the bedrooms are big and handsome over 2 floors with bathrooms on each floor. Outside is fabulous - a large al fresco dining area, plenty of loungers and room around the pool, and a large beautiful pool. There is room to roam around the large grass lawn, and there are walks nearby.
In the area, there are lakes, caves, medieval towns, Cathar castles, cute villages
Très bon séjour passé en famille à Noël dans cette grande maison qui a pu accueillir facilement 6 adultes et 5 enfants. Vaste cuisine très bien équipée, grandes chambres avec salles d'eau fonctionnelles.
Propriétaires charmants et très discrets.
Accueil chaleureux, point de vue magnifique, tranquillité, espace
Toute est prévu dans cette grande maison situé à flanc de coteaux, en plein campagne. Vue magnifique et silence garanti ; départ pour des randonnées au pied du portail. Cuisine équipée tant en vaisselle qu'en électroménager et les chambres possèdent des rangements.
Cette semaine en pays Cathare fut une réussite et nous en garderons un excellent souvenir. Nous étions sept adultes et un chien.
Nous remercions madame et monsieur Campbell de leur accueil et de leur discrétion.
This lovely Maison de Maitre is situated on the borders of the Aude and Ariege and therefore on the cusp of the Languedoc and Midi-Pyrenees, ideally placed for visiting the Cathar castles of Montsegur, Puilaurens, Queribus and Puivert. The local caves of interest are Niaux, with its' hand prints and cave paintings (all genuine), Lombrives and the large drive through cave of Mas d'Azil which has been inhabited for thousands of years. If you want the feel of French markets you can visit the mediaeval bastide town of Mirepoix on a Monday as well as those of Limoux, Lavelanet and Esperaza and there is always the wine-tasting...... The largest lake in the Ariege is close by (10 mins), the Lac de Montbel and if you want to experience white water rafting, kayaking etc. that is also nearby at Axat or Alet.
