Why Penny Willis-Jones chose Fontiers-Cabardès
Calm, sunny, walkable to village if you don't feel like driving into town! Relaxing by completely private pool. Lovely evenings star gazing on the terrace in the evenings. Two t.v.'s one in the study and one in the lounge, great if someone wants to watch a film and the other sport! Well equipped kitchen for those who want to be the chief on holiday! Games room very useful on hot days and for fun evenings

Home from Home Villa
Just moved on from a weeks stay at Villa Laurier, the villa has everything you could need for your stay, kitchen is very well equipped, location is perfect and Penny is a great hostess. We were a three generation family, and the villa worked great for us, the pool room in the basement was a lovely touch and proved lots of entertainment, as did the simple pleasure of sitting on the balcony in the evening watching the changing colours of the sky.
It was a pleasure having you and your family stay in my house! I am really glad that you were able to make full use of the pool table, always good fun! Will remember that you named the pool robot! Look forward to welcoming you again if you would like to return to the Carcassonne area. A bientôt!
Brilliant holiday in this very comfortable house. Pool is gorgeous
We had a lovely holiday in this very comfortable property. We particularly enjoyed the pool and games room. It was such a treat having most meals outside on the veranda. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near Carcassconne. Great holiday
Very happy to hear youenjoyed your holiday! Hope the best team won at the pool table! Look forward to seeing you again!
Just returned from a weeks stay and what a relaxing week it was. Everything we needed and more, but you cannot put a price on how peaceful it was, to sit there with a glass of malepere and watch the sun go down was my idea of heaven.
Very happy that you enjoyed the magic that makes the house special ! You are all welcome back at any time!
A lovely house in peaceful surroundings
We enjoyed staying in a well equipped and spotless home. The location was great for visiting Carcasonne, the medieval cite, the Cathar castles and various vineyards. The famous market in Revel on Saturday was full of local produce and well worth a visit.
The local village bar, a short walk made for an enjoyable evening.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and highly recommend this house.
Glad that you had such a lovely time and managed to do so much! Yes, the Revel market is a great Saturday visit!
Really lovely property - ticked all the boxes!
We had a fantastic week. The house was lovely -really cosy and homely and with everything we needed, and more. The owner, Penny, was really friendly and helpful from start to finish. Our children loved the pool , me and my husband loved the pool table ! And we all loved the video library - a real blast from the past. It was the perfect setting for a relaxing week and we would definitely recommend it . Carcassonne is only about 30 mins away and well worth a visit. There is also lac montagnes in nearby Mezmet which is great for the kids.
Beautiful villa in rural location
We stayed in this villa for a week with our two children, one of which is disabled, this villa has great disabled access. The villa was stunning a real home from home has everything you would require and more. The location was amazing in the foothills of the mountains. There was a local shop and bar/restaurant in the village. The owner was a lovely welcoming lady who was very helpful. There was lots of information in the villa on things to do in the area. I would strongly recommended the safari at sigean for the children. I would highly recommend this villa, even more beautiful than the pictures.
Thank you very much for our stay we all loved it.
