Just lovely

5 of 5
We had the pleasure to stay in this delightful house in Carcassonne for one week. Despite there not being many photos of the house before our stay I was confident that Shelly's description would not let us down and I was right. Photos would not do it justice, it has to be seen to be believed. It is described in the literature as a home from home and it was always a pleasure to come back to. Shelley has thought very carefully about what guests would like/need and there are many little extras that made our time there very comfortable. It is in a central location for everything, the station, the canal and The Cite but was still quiet at night. The tourist office is excellent and would also recommend the market on Saturday morning and the bike hire. Thank you Shelley and Simon, and also Fiona who presents the house beautifully.

Lovely comfy villa in stunning setting. Pool perfect.

5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks and didn't want to go home. The photos don't do the villa or outside justice. The garden is beautiful with lots of different areas to sit in-plenty of places in the shade. The pool is perfect as it is a good size and the cover allows you to keep out of the sun and acts as a great barrier when playing ball games in the pool. If you prefer to remove the cover them you can do. The kitchen has everything you need,including a washing machine. The bedrooms are good sized with ample storage. The bathroom has a nice bath and a decent shower. The lounge is very cosy,with reclining seats, DVD player including a selection of DVDs and a baby grand piano which kept our children entertained!! Colin and Ann were great hosts-we enjoyed a lovely evening with them, Colin playing the accordion. They were really helpful and there if you needed them but kept out of the way to give you privacy. It is situated in a beautiful part of France and so peaceful. An amazing place to stay and we will certainly be returning! A fantastic price for what you get.
