About the property

Beautiful villa with private pool in south facing walled garden, Ideal for two f

Some Villa’s say they are in Carcassonne, but they are in a village near Carcassonne, we are literally 5 minutes’ drive/or bus ride to the Cite! Castle, where there are 100’s of shops, cafés and Restaurants.

We are situated in a lovely exclusive residential area called Lac du Cavayere, where there is a beach which is only 5 minutes’ walk from the villa, there are pedalos, crazy golf, volley ball courts, and a new activity on the water! See photo, there is also a 02 activity centre for the kids or grownups, which is high in the air, and a zip wire to take you across the lake-All this is only 5 minutes’ walk from Villa Mimosa.

Although Villa Mimosa is in a quiet area, you are minutes from lots going on. We would suggest you hire a car, there is a bus that stops by the lake, but it does not run very late at night.

The town of Carcassonne itself, where you will find numerous bars, cafes, shops, theatre and a local market which is held twice a week. There are lots of lovely villages to discover like the medieval market town of Mirripox, Minnervois and Corberes.

If you want to explore further afield then Andorra is just a 2 hour drive from the villa, where you can stock up on all your duty free purchases and also designer goods. Barcelona is just 2 hours’ drive and Gerona 1 hours’ drive. There is a public bus which runs from the lake to the Castle and Town and there are supermarkets a short drive away where you will find all your everyday needs. But we would recommend that you hire a car to explore all the lovely villages around.

It is 40mins drive from the Med and only 5 min from the Golf course. The villa boasts a secluded South facing walled garden comprising of fruit trees, lawn and large patio around the pool, there are sun loungers, chairs and large table seating 6 for alfresco eating, and large BBQ. The pool size is 9-4mt and 0.9-1.90m deep.

Why Mrs Dewar chose Carcassonne

If you want a modern Villa, that is within 5 mins walking distance to a beach (by the lake) with loads of sports at the lake plus the O2 activity, then only 5 mins to the castle with 100's of restaurants and bars/cafes and yet the villa is in a very quite area.

Or just chill by the private pool in a south facing walled garden, then this is the villa for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Really great villa, everything you could want, great pool too! Minutes from a beach and only minutes drive to the castle, ideal location.

Our stay at Villa Mimosa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this very nice villa for a week (20-8 untill 27-8) and enjoyed it very much. We are a family with 2 children (age 4 and 7y). The girls loved the clean pool and the comfortabel chairs to enjoy the warm sunny weather. The property was clean and well mantained. The listed discription was complete and accurate. Everything we expected when booking the Villa was there as was promissed. We loved it and we would recommand it to relatives and friends and we difinitely will go back there when we want to go to the region of Carcassonne again!

We want to rhank the owners Dewar for our very succesfull stay at their very nice Villa Mimosa 😊

Had a fantastic 3 generation holiday staying in a very stunning villa, very clean, spacious and comfortable with a luxury feel.

Location is great if you have a car but can easily use public transport to get to the cite or Carcassonne centre.

Stunning castle with tourist shops inside and a fab centre for shopping and restaurant's....sampled many!!!

With a age range of 16-71 this was a perfect place to stay with the pool being used daily and a great adventure park and beach at the O2 lake that is well within walking distance with free or very reasonable priced facility's.

Would recommend for a restful, enjoyable and relaxing stay.

Very helpful owners...was a pleasure, planning for next year already!!!!!!

A fine house indeed

  • 4 of 5

Villa Mimosa is a beautiful , modern and compact house. Everything you can need is provided to make it an easy stay for 'fliers'. The house is tiled and marble so cool and clean. The outside space is brilliant if you are mainly 'adults' and don't have small children - not a huge garden and not a 'view' , however, you could barely be closer to the Lac de la Cavayere - which is a fantastic facility as only the french can do and do so well. Importantly the stunning old cite of Carcassonne is truly only 5 mins in the car and the 'new' city not much more. Really easy access and so much to see in the surrounding areas. Recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely comments, We never tier of Carcassonne, there is always something on at the Castle - Cite- and always new restaurants to try out! The villa is in a quiet location, and is ideal for those evenings in, around the BBQ! We have tried to think of your every need, so you will find hairdryers, and pool towels, as we do realise you are limited with your baggage allowance.

Car: recommended

There are direct flights twice daily from Stanstead to Carcassonne Airport (8 minutes drive to villa from Airport). With the flight only taking 1 1/2 hours you could be sitting round the pool enjoying a glass of something cool, only a couple of hours from leaving the UK! or why not try out TGV which leaves Waterloo via Paris direct to Carcassonne.
