House works well, was very clean with an excellent pool.

  • 4 of 5

The house is very well placed for exploring the Cathar area, especially Carcassonne. Other activities all in easy reach. The best feature is the large pool. The house itself is not very characterful but works well and we would return another year. A few tired features could do with tidying up, Wi-fi would definitely be a plus for researching activities/restaurants etc as the data signal is not great. We were there in a heatwave so access to the air conditioning in the exceptional temperatures would have been a bonus. There were fans which helped. Kitchen well fitted out and there is an excellent bakery and adequate supermarket 5 minutes drive away. The house was impeccably clean when we arrived and Geoff, the local rep, met us punctually and told us all we needed to know. We would Cee come back another time; the biggest improvement, especially travelling with teenagers, Wi-fi!

Très jolie maison

  • 4 of 5

Notre séjour a été vraiment très agréable. La maison est spacieuse, au calme et la piscine est grande. La cuisine est également très bien équipée et l'aménagement extérieur permet de prendre le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse ou même l'apéro au bord de l'eau. Malheureusement pour nous, la machine à laver était en panne durant notre séjour et aucune solution n'a pu nous être proposée pour éviter le lavoir. En dehors de cela, tout était parfait et "Handyman" était très sympathique. Merci
