A range of shops, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets in the surrounding towns and villages are within a ten minute drive. Mobile suppliers of fruits and vegetables, meats, fish and groceries visit the village throughout the week.

A beautiful Gite in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculate, so much so we thought we were the first guests to stay there! The view to the Mountains is really stunning and the scenery is constantly changing. The village was very quiet with only one restaurant/bar but we ate there twice and had a very good meal on each occasion. Carcassonne was about a fifteen minute drive through the countryside and there is some beautiful scenery to be enjoyed. The house was well equipped, the bed comfortable and the shower excellent. There was Sky TV but it only had a limited selection of all the worst of the worst repeats but it does have Sky News. There is a DVD and a CD player provided but there are no Films or music CD;s which proved frustrating when we wanted to stay in and relax there was nothing to watch or listen to. Matthew and June were perfect hosts however and we will look to go back again another time.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything you may need whilst away. It was very clean and well kept. The highlight has to be the views which changes all the time depending on the weather. There is a lovely decking area which you can sit and just take it all either during the day or at night with the stunning night time sky.

There is a quaint village just up the road which has a bar/food and sells fresh bread in the mornings. There is no food shop but I believe mobile sellers come to the village depending on what day it is.

There are plenty of nice villages to see and activities to do within the local area.

I loved it and would definitely stay here again.

Lovely location,superb views and extremely clean and well maintained property.

  • 4 of 5

We had a week at this property and unfortunately the weather was not at its best.The superb views over to the Pyrenees were not always available!!It would have been nice to sit outside but not an option due to the weather.The property was very well maintained and equiped,very clean and tidy but a few extra bits and pieces would have made it more homely eg curtains,more pictures on walls and a rug or two.

The area is very interesting with plenty picturesque villages about,eg Mirepoix and Limoux and very close to Carcassonne.Only one restaurant within walking distance but plenty of options in most of the surrounding villages.The Canal du Midi is on your doorstep but there does not seem to be the attractions,restaurants around it to make it more interesting.If only the weather had been better!!

The owners ,who lived adjacent to property, were most polite and helpful and in no way intrusive.

The property is so handy for airport at Carcassonne.No hassle.

très satisfait de mon séjour

  • 5 of 5

nous étions une famille de 4 et avons été ravis de la qualité de la location et de l'accueil, sans parler bien sûr de la beauté et de l'intérêt touristique de la région.

le gîte est quasiment neuf, moderne, très fonctionnel et parfaitement équipé. Nous l'avons trouvé dans un état de propreté exceptionnel.

les propriétaires sont très sympathiques mais aussi très discrets bien que leur maison soit à côté du gîte on est en toute tranquillité dans un environnement très calme.

Draps et serviettes sont fournis sans supplément de prix, ainsi que de nombreux accessoires de la vie de tous les jours. l'électricité est comprise pour un tarif de location de surcroît très compétitif par rapport à la moyenne: de nombreux propriétaires français devraient prendre exemple (les propriétaires sont anglais).

nous avons même eu droit à une très bonne bouteille de blanquette offerte qui nous attendait au frais dans le frigo à notre arrivée! quelle délicate attention

juste un bémol peut être pour certains, voiture obligatoire et il faudra faire pas mal de kilomètres pour visiter nombre de chateaux cathares du sud ou bien sûr aller à la plage, mais le village est bien situé étant proche de Carcassonne et de Bram et rouler sur les routes des Corbières est un plaisir des yeux: attention elles sont parfois très étroites et tortueuses.

Belle maison neuve, situé dans un petit village. Nous avons pu apprécier le calme au milieu des vignes.

Possibilité de grandes promenades dans des chemins de vignes avec pratiquemment aucun passage de voitures.

Notre enfant de 3 ans s'est bien amusé autour de la maison.

Et nous nous avons pu profiter de cette splendide vue dégagée autour d'un petit verre sur la terrasse.

Les propriétaires sont gentils et discrets.

En résumé, nous avons passés 15 jours très reposants.
