"Delightfully restored, well equipped & comfortable house in French village."

We enjoyed the house, the village and the province. The house has all amenities and equipment for a very comfortable stay. The village is historic and well worth exploring. Access to a car is essential as there are many places to visit, as well as great walks, climbs to ancient castles and cycling activities. The Canal du Midi and Carcasson deserve a special mention. The wine of the region is a well kept secret. We especially loved the full-bodied reds.
