The house is lovely. Very well equipped and comfortable so very relaxing to stay in. The pool is lovely. There are pool toys and basketball hoop which the boys enjoyed. Outdoor dining/bbq area very comfortable. The location is super. We walked into Carcassonne which is fascinating to see. The surrounding area is wonderful for cycling, quiet roads and pretty country side. I would recommend the property whole heartedly. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is a bakery and friendly shop in the village too. I would love to stay here again.

Home from home - great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation close to Carcassonne that's definitely a home from home - has all the amenities you'd need, especially in the kitchen if you're cooking. Kids loved the pool and it's in a lovely quiet village. The hosts were great, making sure that everything was ok and willing to provide local advice. Would definitely return.

Very clean, home from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing stay in this wonderful house. BJ and Iris were very welcoming hosts, the house was clean and plenty of linen was provided for our stay. It was really useful having access to the bikes for our stay too, although most of the time was spent in and around the pool. We would certainly be back if we are holidays get in the area in the future.

Home from home - but better!

  • 5 of 5

The house really is a home from home, the pictures do not do it justice. It has everything that you could need and more, the kitchen was the best equipped I've ever stayed in, comfortable beds, lots of outdoor toys. The highchair and cot were so well appointed, that our baby slept through (and she's not known for sleeping)! Great pool, and a perfect location, the holiday can be whatever you'd like it to be - relaxing by the pool, historical sight seeing in the Cathar region, city breaks, adventure holiday, beach holiday you could even visit Andorra or Barcelona if you're happy to drive. There is plenty of inspiration provided at the villa, so you don't need to decide beforehand either.

It was spotlessly the clean, and the glasses were sparkling (that might sound silly, but so often glasses aren't as clean as they could be). The owners were so friendly, nothing was too much trouble, it felt like using a family friend's house and we felt that if we had any problem of any sort we could have called upon them.

We shall certainly be back, as it is perfect for families of all ages. In fact it's such a find we were tempted not to review so we could book all summer next time!

A well equipped, attractive villa in a good location - excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5

The villa had everything you could possibly need from swimming pool, bikes, pretty patio and bbq to washing machine, wifi and well equipped kitchen. The village, only a couple of minutes walk away, has a wonderful bakery and local shop and two pretty good restaurants - one mainly offering pizza and the other one tapas. Carcassone was only a few minites away by car and there was also the wonderful lac de cavayeres near by which we biked to. The lovely owners BJ and Iris met us when we arrived to show us around and answer any questions. All in all I cannot fault our stay here and would gladly return in the future.

The largest attraction in Carcassonne is the medieval castle called "La Cite" with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. Carcassonne itself offers a variety of shopping streets and museums in the "Old Town".

There are an O2 Adventure Climbing Parc and a beach with watersport activities near the Lake of Cavayere on the outskirts of Carcassonne.

The "Cathar trail" in the Aude district give you a range of castles to visit and learn about the history. The local area offers a variety of wineries which offers tours and tastings.

For Gourmets, the Aude district has various Top Michelin starred restaurants for you and Franck Putelat has a great restaurant with a terrace 3 km from our house.

Narbonne and its beaches is only 54 minutes by car.

Toulouse offers a great day of sightseeing and shopping and the the Aerospace museum is a must.

If you like day trips we would recommend Montpellier or Perpignan and use use their nearby beaches for a late afternoon.

The whole area is ideal for cycling, on mountain and street/racing bikes and trails have been prepared. For the leisure cyclist we can recommend the route next to the Canal du midi, since it is nice and flat !! Please visit the website of Carcassonne Tourism and the Aude Tourism, since the list of activities and things to do is endless.
