We stayed a week in a very hot August and we loved the pool on-site. The house was spacious, clean and fans were provided to help keep cool. Beds also made up for our arrival. Kitchen area well set up and eating outside using BBQ was great. Dishwasher and washing machine also available, along with DVD player and TV that we could get English TV on.The bottle of wine for us on arrival was most welcomed! The local bakery was great and a short walk to the Canal du Midi where watching the boats go by was very pleasant. Plenty to do locally, Carcassonne being only 15 mins away and the village is in the midst of vineyards. Nice and peaceful but you need a car. Owner very helpful with pre-travel information on the area, especially as we arrived on Sunday afternoon when all shops shut!. We also rented bikes as information pack said one could hire these in nearby Trebes and we also visited the nearby Lac featured on the website. A great time was had by us.

We had a great time here. The home is clean and comfortable; the pool is perfect for keeping cool; the boulangerie stock the essentials as well as bagettes and croisants; and Carcassonne and some lovely lakeside beaches are about 15-20 minutes in the car. We had a lovely time and would recommend this property as a great place to stay.
