Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
New to the rental market in 2013, L'Arboretum is ideally suited for Families and Friends alike, who wish to either explore the many attractions available in the Aude area, or just relax in the extensive gardens enjoying the peace and tranquility of this lovely villa.
The light and airy accommodation is furnished to a very high standard, with all the home comforts you need for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
There are two large terrace areas which together with the extensive gardens are ideal for alfresco dinning or just soaking up the sun. Cool off in the (heated) swimming pool, or if you are not a sun worshiper settle yourself under one of the shaded areas with a good book and a glass of wine.
The local area is ideal for those that wish to be a little more energetic, offering a good variety of walks, suitable for all age groups and fitness levels. Additionally, visit one of the local attractions, such as the book village of Montolieu (4km) or the historic castle at Saisac (6km) and of course the world heritage sites of Le Cite and Canal du Midi, to name just a few on offer.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This part of the Aude has a sunny climate boasting up to 300 days of sunshine each year.
Languedoc offers something for everyone. Miles of long, sandy beaches, Cathar castles, fabulous scenery, great cuisine and vineyards in abundance.
The most renowned attractions in the area are the medieval walled ‘Cite’ and the Canal du Midi, both of which are World Heritage Sites and should not be missed. However, there is much more to see in this delightful region. The surrounding area is one of outstanding natural beauty and nearby villages such as Montolieu, Saissac, Revel, Limoux and Mirepoix , to name but a few, are all pretty and interesting.
Further afield, Narbonne, Montpellier, Toulouse and Pezenas are all well worth a visit.
Saint Denis, Carcassonne
Saint Denis is an excellent base from which to sample the wide variety of activities that are available in the region.
In addition to great walks that can be taken from the house, the more adventurous might enjoy kayaking, canoeing and white water rafting that are all reached within a short drive.
Lac de la Cavayere, a man made beach and lake close to Carcassonne, is a 25 minute drive away. Here there is a sandy beach, swimming, picnic areas, walks and other leisure activities including an excellent treetop adventure course for all ages.
The famous Canal du Midi also offers boat trips or boat hire or a quiet stroll along the river that winds its way though Carcassonne itself.
There are numerous markets that are a feature of life in the area. In particular, the Saturday morning market at Place Carnot in the centre of Carcassonne, is an absolute must, but the markets at nearby, Revel, Limoux and Mirepoix are also well worth a visit.
The property is located in an idyllic rural setting on the edge of the village of Saint Denis - only a 20 minute drive from Carcassonne airport. It is 17km from Carcassonne, with its magnificent medieval castle. The near vicinity boasts an array of exquisite villages, historical sites such as Cathar castles and ancient abbeys, the beautiful canal du midi, vineyards and some of the best restaurants that you will ever experience.
Other Activities: lake with beach and boating, kayaking.
The village of Saint Denis has a Post office, a new modern bar and well stocked general shop both which opened in July 2012.

My family and I have just returned from a hugely enjoyable stay at L'Arboretum.We have booked through Holiday Lettings for a number of years and this was our favourite property by some way.Initia… More
19 Jun 2013
We really enjoyed our stay here: the location was great as a relatively easy drive from Carcassonne Airport and well-placed for seeing much of this beautiful region.
The property was of a good standard - well-represented by the photographs and description which was a relief as this was the first time we had booked a holiday direct with property owners and we weren't entirely sure what to expect. It was clean and well-equipped, with a lot of British touches which made it feel homely. There was also a good selection of children's toys, plus books and DVDs to use.
The garden was especially lovely - huge and secluded with a choice of places to sit out for meals or sunbathing. It felt safe for children to play in.
The weather was mixed and that was the only downside to our stay: rain and cold hampered our plans a little and the house is probably better suited to a summer stay as there was no central heating (though there is a wood-burner installed) and storms disrupted the electricity supply a few times and necessitated a jog up the garden to flip the trip-switch back on!
Overall though, we would definitely return and recommend this to other couples and families with young children.
