Townhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This is a typical French town house on three floors, which sleeps up to eight people. As it has two kitchens, it is very suitable for two families. An upper patio looks out onto the River Aude and the lower patio is actually the bank of the river. It is in a small town with numerous restaurants, cafes, banks, shops, a supermarket, a swimming pool and a cinema all within walking distance.
There is plenty to do in the area with wine tasting, walking and Cathar Castles to visit and Renne de Chateau of the Di Vinci code is nearby. Another wonderful day out is to visit the beautiful city of Carcassone. The Pyranees , Spain and Andorra are also near enough to visit in one day.
It is delightfully placed by the river, which will lull you to sleep at night and provide you with beautiful views during the day. Because of its location by the river, there is no trouble with insects or anything similar.
