The Yellow House in Trausse-Minervois Near Carcassonne
Lovely little house
We had a very enjoyable stay of 6 weeks. The house is comfortable, clean & very well equipped in the centre of a small village. It is ideal for a couple or small family and great for seeing the sights of the Minervois.
The 2 bedrooms are interconnected which means you have to go through the other to get to the bathroom unless you go via the outdoor veranda. Not a problem if you are just a couple. We had a great time here. …
Villa Celeste is an incredible, delightful and perfect place to stay! Please do!
We had looked at this Villa online a few years ago and then decided at the start of this year to book. We were delighted with the regular contact with Joie de Vivre and the directions given by email and also a request for any shopping we would like the owners to do for us as we would be arriving on a Sunday and most shops would be closed. We arrived in Trausse and were immediately struck by the simplistic beauty of the village. We arrived at the very unassuming door of the Villa and the owners warmly welcomed us and showed us around. Quite simply, this Villa is stunning, outstanding and an absolute gem of a find! The bedrooms each have an ensuite shower room and toilet and there is a wardrobe in each of the bedrooms with a hair dryer! There is a Free view Sky box - so English tv channels! Wi-Fi is available at the front of the house via Hotspot (from the little supermarket across the street.) You need to be close to the front door to access it but this is no problem at all. The owners had done our shopping for us and also provided us with a lovely welcome basket with tea, coffee, biscuits and a bottle of wine! They recommended a couple of restaurants to us and one in particular was amazing. It's called L'Amandier and is in Trausse itself. Well worth a vist. You will need a car to get out and about but the area is stunning and so I would go and have a look. Otherwise, relaxing by the very well sized pool on the sun loungers is also recommended! The owners live next door but the Villa grounds and pool area are totally private. They come and water the plants around the pool between 6pm and 7pm (if ok with you) and are always very courteous and extremely helpful. We had a fabulous holiday here the first week of October and can highly recommend this amazing Villa and the owners and Trausse and the whole Carcassonne /Minervois area. Au Revoir and Bon Voyage! …
