“Great accommodation in good location.”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

This is a spacious and well appointed gite in very good condition. It has plenty of outdoor space too, ideal for BBQ, with the bonus of a pool. The location is peaceful with easy access to the surrounding places of interest with Carcassonne and the sea only a short drive away. The owners, Louise and Michel, could not have been more helpful and friendly, offering plenty of advise and information on the surrounding area. We were very happy with our stay here.

Owner's reply: Michel and I are happy you enjoyed your stay and liked the gîte. Thanks for coming...... Hope to see you all again one day Louise

“Lose yourself in this rich heartland of all that makes France irresistible.”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2014

An excellent situation from which to explore the many experiences available, both at the coast, in the towns and villages around glorious Carcassonne and, of course, along the beautiful stretches of the “Canal du Midi” – be it by car, by bike or on foot. The apartment, which is very comfortable for two adults with two children, has it’s own south-facing terrace and shared pool and shaded garden area and is set apart, above the living area of the owners –Louise and Michel Duchateau. Their friendly, informed, discreet presence on site made for full appreciation and enjoyment of this wonderfully rich and varied area of southern France. All in all, excellent value for money.

“Great southern France rural location”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2013

For four of us (two couples) this was a great apartment,in a hamlet surrounded by vineyards and close to the Canal du Midi and River Aude. The apartment is very spacious with a very good kitchen in an open plan living area. There is a drive of a few minutes to the nearest supermarket, boulangerie etc but that was not a drawback for us and was offset by the peacefulness of the apartment's location. Our one suggestion to the lovely owners was that providing a couple of bikes would be appreciated by some guests.

Owner's reply: It was great to meet you and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have taken note of your suggestion and plan to have bikes available soon.
