Great location with all you need for a self-catering holiday. Lacked a decent shower though. Pool area very nice. Only a 15 minute walk from the walled city of Carcassonne.
Thank you for your comments we have noted you were unhappy with the existing shower and so will be replacing it before the next summer season.
