About Joep van den Heuvel
OUR STORY When we were packing up our house in Belgium to prepare for our move to France, we came across one of my old diaries which I always kept up to date with our vacation adventures. There is where we found what must have been the real turning point in the decision making that one day we would move to France. It was the year 2000 and Joep and myself had just visited the magnificent Chateau de Chambord in the Loire region and were digesting the magnificense of the place on a little bench in the park of the Chateau. The nearby market with local products was full of life and in combination with the magnificence of the castle it created an idillic atmosphere. It was at that exact moment that a vision started to form about how life could be for the two of us in France; working together, welcoming guests to our place in the sun and enjoying life! It took us another 10 years to actually take the big decision to put our house on the market and start the search for the perfect place in France. But on that bench with a view of the Chateau de Chambord is where it all began…

Gîte superbe - propriétaires attentifs et sympathiques - bon rapport qualité-prix
Nous conseillons aux vacanciers de s'arrêter dans un des gîtes de Joep et Miranda, les 2 propriétaires forts sympathiques.
Notre gîte était super bien équipé : mobilier, vaisselle, électroménager de grande marque, dosettes Nespresso, lessive, pastille pour le lave-vaisselle … A l'extérieur un barbecue Weber est à disposition ; un peu plus bas c'est la piscine et les transats.
Vous serez ravis de rejoindre le pot de bienvenu et de participer, si vous le souhaitez, à un diner commun (produits et vins de la région).
La région est propice à de belles découvertes : les marchés, les villages, les églises et abbayes, les collines … un peu plus loin la mer.
Enfin chaque gîte a son espace dédié : la quiétude est au rendez-vous.
A proximité à Brahm, une excellente boucherie, un marché hebdomadaire, un Carrefour Market.
A bientôt !
The property is surrounded by sunflower fields, vineyards and olive groves. There are no busy roads which run along the domain and there is plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors and unwind.
In the immediate vicinity there is lots to see and do. The walled city of Carcassonne, the largest castle in Europe, is only 15 km away. Near Carcassonne is also a large lake with a nice sandy beach (ideal for children) and an adventure park with climbing and clambering tracks which is one of the highlights for slightly older kids.
Eating & drinking is amongst the favorite pastimes of the locals and the area is blessed with great restaurants, fantastic markets and many vineyards where a glass of wine can be tasted. But a nice cup of coffee on a sleepy outdoor café nearby or a cosy picnic along the beautiful Canal du Midi is also un-resistable.
There is a lot to see and do in the Cathar country of the Aude. Your hosts are more than happy to share their favorite places and help you find the gems of the region (on and off the beaten track).
