Further details indoors

All the rooms are generous in size. The most compelling feature of the house is the feeling of space and light everywhere. It is ideal for larger parties to spread out and relax, either separately or together. There are plenty of books, board games, dvd's and toys for children including duplo/lego and "Happy Street". There is also an electric piano in the sitting room. The games room is very popular with teenagers.

Further details outdoors

The garden is at the rear of the house and is accessed via french doors in the sitting room and from all the other ground floor rooms. The main garden table and chairs are wrought iron and there are additional tables and chairs around the garden. The BBQ is stored under a covered area near the kitchen. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool. The views from the garden are of lovely rolling countryside.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The area is steeped in history (Cathar castles, Medieval towns, pre-historic caves). The Mediterranean is about an hour's drive away and La Cite of Carcassonne about half an hour away. This is vine-growing country and Limoux is famous for its "blanquette", a sparkling AOC wine made from the Mauzac, Chenin and Chardonnary grapes, using the champagne method. The Canal du Midi (completed in 1680 ) which links the Mediterrerean to the Atlantic runs through the region.

Bellegarde du Razes

The Medieval town of Mirepoix (a Bastide town) is about 10 minutes away by car. Every Monday it hosts a large market where local producers sell their wines, honey, soaps, jewellery and other goods.

La Pène (sometimes appears as "La Peine") is a small hamlet of about 12 houses surrounded by fields - sun flowers in the summer months and a few vineyards. There is a small lake just below the house and lovely walks all around the hamlet.

"Wonderful house, wonderful holiday."

We had a tremendous week at La Pene. We have stayed in this part of France a few times, but the combination of the house, its access from motorways/A roads and the surrounding towns and activities, ma… More

"A fabulous location"

We stayed at La Pene two years ago and loved it so much we went back this year! It is a fabulous location surrounded by beautiful countryside but a short drive away from the picturesque town of Mirepoix with plenty of shops and restaurants (we recommend making reservations for the restaurants however as it does get very busy). The children (aged between 9 and 12) loved the ample sized swimming pool and the games room and the property is well equipped with just about everything you may need. It would probably also be a lovely location to take or hire bikes as it is so rural and quiet and not too hilly. We also recommend trying the white water rafting - it was the highlight of the holiday for the children. It would be hard to find fault with this property and we will probably return again in a few years.

"A holiday to remember"

La Pene is a wonderfully quiet and secluded place to stay. The facilities are excellent - the kids particularly enjoyed the games room and large pool! The house is on the end of a small terrace but you would hardly know there is anyone else about. The house is well equipped and we loved using the barbecue in the glorious weather we had. It is a great base to see the many wonderful sights in the area.

"Lovely house, lovely location, couldn't ask for anything more."

Had a very pleasant stay. Great house with lots of room for people to spread out, great kitchen for cooking all that marvellous food we bought at the local markets, convenient to lots of things to do and see but on a quiet road up in the hills. Got in the pool for a few dips when the weather, even in May, turned warm. Lots of lovely meals outdoors on the terrace. Highly recommended.

"Lovely family friendly house in idyllic countryside"

La Pene is a wonderfully well-equipped family home with great facilities. The garden and swimming are beautiful and there's a games room with table tennis, snooker table and dart board. There's masses of space in the house and plenty of games, books and DVDs if you're unlucky enough to have bad weather. The surrounding countryside is stunning, perfect for walking and cycling and there are some lovely small towns and villages in the area with great restaurants. A great place to stay.
