Description

Chez Magali and La Florette are two houses on the same grounds, about 20 yards apart. They are normally let separately, but they can be let as a unit for sixteen people with the shared use of the terraces, lawn and large exclusive swimming-pool 11x5ms. When let separately, they face in opposite directions, so preserving privacy. Opening both up together is simply a matter of unlocking one or two doors. La Florette sleeps ten people in two double and three twin bedrooms; Chez Magali six in one double and two twin bedrooms. One double bedroom in each house has en suite shower.

The private swimming-pool is 11x5 ms. with separate paddling pool, and a broad patio protected by child-proof entrance. It is a veritable sun trap. The long south-facing terrace leads on to the external dining area with overhead lighting, and the lawn surrounded by mature shrubs and trees. There is a double swing on the lawn. There is a field for ball games etc.

The long south-facing terrace leads on to the external dining area with overhead lighting, and the lawn surrounded by mature shrubs and trees. There is a double swing on the lawn. There is a field for ball games etc.

La Florette stands in extensive grounds, about 100 yards from the river Aude. On the first floor, the house has one double bedroom with en suite shower, looking towards the river; three twin bedrooms looking over the lawn towards the Corbieres hills; one bathroom with bath and shower; another washroom with shower and wc; plus a separate wc. On the ground floor, there is a second double bedroom and separate wc, suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties. The large living-room has 100s of books in English, satellite TV receiving UK programmes, DVD player and DVDs, cassette player and cassettes, comfortable seating. The kitchen is well equipped and convenient. A back door leads to your back garden. From the separate dining-room, porte-fenetres lead out onto the south-facing terrace. Secure parking in the drive behind lockable gates.

Chez Magali is for those who want convenience married to comfort. A holiday home, not just a holiday house. It is a recent restoration of an old property eight miles east of Carcassonne. It offers secure parking. It has two twin bedrooms and one double with en suite shower. One twin has a balcony looking towards the river. Outside, you have your dining patio and garden.

You approach the house by the lane which leads towards the river. Park your car within the gates and walk across the dining patio towards your front door. The patio is surrounded by shrubs and bushes, and the external dining table has overhead lighting. Next to your patio is the grassed garden for sitting out or for children's play. You enter the huge living room which covers almost the entire floor area. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to use. The dining table under its chandelier is close by, making serving very straightforward. The living area has very comfortable seating, many books in English, the television, DVD player, cassette player with cassettes. The TV receives UK programmes. Windows to the south and west look over the fields. All very relaxing with nice décor and attention to detail. There is a separate wc on the ground floor near the porch. The house has two washing-machines, a dish-washer and all the equipment necessary for easy living.

Easy stairs lead to the first floor. To your left is one twin bedroom and the double bedroom both facing south. The double bedroom has en suite shower and washbasin. The second twin bedroom faces towards the river. From it, a door leads out onto the balcony looking over the fields and the trees along the Aude. The bathroom has a bath with hand-shower and wash-basin. There is a separate wc on this floor also. You will like the décor and the ample room and wardrobe space in each bedroom.

Your shops, banks etc. and tourist office are two miles away in Trebes. It is easy to get to Super 'U', your nearest supermarket, while the huge 'Geant' is a little further on towards Carcassonne. You can take boat trips at Trebes along the Canal du Midi, or you can walk or cycle along the tow-path, very easy and relaxing. Casrcassonne is a 'must-see', Europe's largest medieval fortified city with plenty of interest and entertainment for adults and children. Carcassonne 'new town' has good shopping and sports facilities.

To your north is the Montagne Noire where there are spectacular caves to explore as well as lovely drives through high woodland. To the south are the Corbieres hills, wild country and yet so close to the sea. You are in Cathar country, the land of the 'heretical' sect eliminated in the thirteenth century. At every turn, you will find fortifications and castles from that period.

Access is easy by road and air. Carcassonne airport is about 10 miles away, and the autoroute access is just beyond Trebes (3 miles). From there it is a quick, easy drive round Narbonne to the little road which takes you down to Gruissan, Narbonne Plage and other coastal resorts. Our favourite is Peyriac de Mer with its lagoon and rare birds. Or you can get to Toulouse by autoroute for an interesting day out (50 miles).

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Floure is set in the Minervois, the triangular plain between Carcassonne, Beziers and Narbonne. Through it, the river Aude flows from Carcassonne to the sea. There are many small villages, wineries and local restaurants to explore in this area. To the north, you have the Montagne Noire with its spectacular caves and wooded countryside. You can drive to the top. To the south are the Corbieres hills, a wild landscape, scarcely populated and yet so close to the Mediterranean. Carcassonne is a wonderful place, Europe's largest fortified medieval city, one of France's main tourist centres. The new town has excellent shopping and sporting facilities. The Canal du Midi is two or three miles away. You can take boat trips from Trebes, Carcassonne , Bram or Homps. If you're lucky, you can find a company which will let you take a boat privately for a day. It is very relaxing to take your hamper and cool white wine, stop under the trees for your picnic and then sail on under the war sun. To the west is Toulouse, a mighty fine city with much to do and see. Ideal for a day out. In the wider area, there are many Cathar castles and fortifications, mostly in ruins but redolent of those sanguinary, deplorable times. It is easy to get to the sea by autoroute. Gruissan is a fascinating place with its marina and houses on stilts by the waterfront. Narbonne Plage is simply an unpretentious resort with a long sea front, safe beaches, perfect for children. You could travel on to Montpellier and Nimes, further north; the former a throbbing university town, the latter famous for its Pont du Gard and Roman ruins. To the south, there are more seaside resorts, all varied. Beyond Perpignan are the Aquapark and international golf course near St. Cyprien. There are jumble sales , vide-greniers, most weekends somewhere within easy reach. Carcassonne has its big festival in July with a firework display, street theatre and many ad hoc events. Every village has its own festival at one time or another. There are markets in Carcassonne itself, a country market on Wednesdays in Lezignan and a good Monday market in Mirepoix (worth the journey). Most villages have their own markets, large and small. The weather during the high summer is hot. In June and September it can be a little cooler and more varied. There are only two winds - one from the sea, the other from the west. You will get the occasional thunderstorms, but they are short-lived and infrequent. Chez Magali and a Florette are ideal for relaxing in the garden, on the patio and by the pool, or taking a stroll along the river bank only a few yards away.

Floure

There is very little in the small village of Floure. However, it does contain the quite magnificent Hotel/Chateau de Floure with its wonderful grounds and splendid interior. You can dine there for that special celebration, or simply take a drink and explore the place. It used to be a Roman legionary base, later a monastery. Beyond Floure, you can drive up the nearest slopes of the Corbieres and enjoy a panoramic view of the entire plain. There is a military museum in Floure and, we are told, a naturist centre. We know nothing of the latter. You can get to the Canal du Midi at Marseillette, a couple of miles away. This is one of the more attractive stretches of the Canal, through open countryside. The lane by Chez Magali takes you down to the river Aude where there is a weir with an electricity generating turbine. It is worth a visit (by the way, you can lock your parking gates to prevent youngsters wandering down there). You can walk along the river bank, and for your early morning run there is a nice path running through the vineyards and back to the house. In Trebes, there are Super U and Intermarche supermarkets, and a huge Geant a little further away. Along the canal bank, there are one or two good restaurants and bars with free wi-fi access. The tourist office is located there also. It is very relaxing to sit and watch the world (and its boats) go by. There are good tennis courts at Trebes, and many more varied sports facilities in Carcassonne. You will no doubt visit Carcassonne old city and explore its battlements and narrow streets. There is plenty of entertainment for children in the old city. Cuisine in this area is typically French - Catalan cuisine has not extended this far. The wines of the area are particularly good and inexpensive, notably Minervois and Corbieres wines. Many wineries invite visitors to pay a visit and take a 'degustation'. In the area, there are some beautiful, large, safe lakes where you can spend an easy afternoon, swimming and sun-bathing. Lake Cavayere very near Carcassonne and lake Juarres near Homps are specially attractive. This is simply a lovely place for a holiday. Relax and enjoy!
