La Maison Bleu

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Pennie and Martyn for a wonderful holiday.

The apartment was clean and comfortable, with a well kitted out kitchen. Having the separate, outside, pool house barn (with views of the mountains), with games room, living/dining area, bathroom, kitchen, and not forgetting the day-bed, was fantastic. The pool is great, and is diligently looked after by Martyn.

The town of Quillan is beautiful, and we couldn't believe how much was going on in the evenings, with regular live music of different types, a fair, Spanish dancing and more besides. The nearby, recently opened, Quillan swimming lake and facilities are great, as are the regular day and night markets in the town.

With such helpful and friendly hosts, excellent restaurants, a lovely town and great accommodation, we can't wait to come back!

Super location !

  • 5 of 5

Super accueil des propriétaires, toujours aux petits soins et qui nous ont donné plein d'infos sur la région. Logement très bien, confortable et bien équipé. La piscine et tout l'espace piscine nous étaient réservés, super avec une grande terrasse en hauteur et la possibilité de faire un barbecue ! il y avait même une salle de détente avec un billard et différents jeux pour se détendre aussi privative !

Location que je vous recommande, très bien située dans un petit village avec toutes les commodités et très calme. C'est une région magnifique avec bcp de choses à voir et faire, idéalement située en plein pays Cathares. Merci à Martyn pour son accueil très chaleureux et sa disponibilité. A refaire sans aucune hésitation !

A hidden gem! Superb!

  • 5 of 5

La Maison Bleu is a superb luxury townhouse at which I have stayed on a bed and breakfast basis but have also had the opportunity to have a look around. I will always come back to this area not just because of this beautiful house but also because Quillan is the perfect base for all holiday makers - whether it be to chill out, site see, something more daring eg sports or just to discover the this wonderful part of France. The proprietors of La Maison Bleu are also a breath of fresh air and you can guarantee will become friends for years to come. They know the area very well too so will always be around to recommend places to go. The hourse itself is spotlessly clean, decorated to an immaculate standard, quirky, fun and full of traditional french character with a bit of Penni chucked in for good measure. Whether you are looking for somewhere to rent the whole house or just a room, you should ensure you try this place first. You will not be disappointed - it's wonderful!! Thanks for some great memories and more to come! xx

Fantastic luxurious house in The Aude

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at La Maison Bleu in Quillan three times now, and haven't been disappointed at all. Our first concern has been to have a property with pool, but close enough to a town to walk to bars, restaurants and boulangerie etc. La Maison Bleu is perfect from this perspective, but also from all others: its large, luxurious, well-appointed and supremely comfortable - we have friends and family dropping in while we're there, and haven't ever felt crowded. There are enough bars and restaurants in Quillan to keep you occupied for a long time, and exploring the local and not so local district is very rewarding. Whether its the longer drives to Perpignan, Narbonne or Carcassonne, or the shorter local trips to Limoux, Mirapoix, Puivert - the possibilities are endless. Walk, scramble around Cathar castles, sit on a lake side. Martyn and Pennie are perfect hosts, there if you need them, invisible if not. Very highly recommended.

Why Quillan, why because there is something for everybody. Quillan is well situated in the Aude valley surrounded by beautiful green mountains, which gives its magical micro climate. 1hr from the long white beaches on the med. 50min through fields and fields of vineyards to the historical city of Carcassonne. 1hr 15min from the city of Toulouse and 1hr from the Spanish border so plenty of days out! If you don't want to drive you can go by coaches and trains from the train station in Quillan, which is a short walk over the bridge which is at the bottom of the road, through the first of the squares where you will find the newsagent the baker 2 bars 2 restaurants & a cycling and fishing shop. As you walk up to the 13th century church take a right where you will find another square with wet-fish shop bakers newsagent more restaurants butcher and bars. As you get to the main road where you will find the station more restaurants and bars, there is also an internet café and lots of banks.

Other Activities: Canoeing,white-water rafting and gliding

Golf: If its golf there is a course by car or train 1 hour away in Carcassonne which works well if not everybody wants to play golf.

Ski: Nearest ski is 25 min away at Camurac, les angles 45 min away, Andorra 1 hour 15 min away there are buses from Quillan if you don't fancy the majestic drive which is great if some of your party don't fancy skiing and some do.
