Make a holiday rental, home, or villa in Aude, France, your home away from home

Aude, France, is named after the River Aude. The local council calls Aude, “Cathar Country”. In 1790, the department of Aude was formed from the eastern part of the old province of Languedoc. Carcassonne is Aude’s capital, a picturesque town with its restored medieval fortifications and buildings, and a perfect place to rent an Aude villa. Other than the Mediterranean beaches and resorts, Aude is relatively undiscovered.

                                                                                                      My wife and I stayed here for three weeks in January/February 2017. We used the apartment as a base whilst visiting family and it was like returning to a "Home from Home" each evening. Like a lot of French shared properties the external entrance and staircase are not pretty. Don't let that put you off, or the climb to the third floor, as the apartment makes up for all that. What I would say is that if your heart isn't so good, or you aren't very fit then 67 steps with suitcases or shopping isn't easy. We were met by Catrina, who was very friendly, and showed us around. The apartment consists of a large lounge overlooking Place Carnot, a well eqipped kitchen at the rear, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two singles, and a bathroom. The lounge is spacious with two sofas, table, large tv, dvd, etc. There is reliable wifi and the tv has mainly French channels, though English news channels are available. The well equipped kitchen looks like new and is well equipped with all you might need. Hob, oven, microwave, washing machine, dish washer, coffee maker. The two bedrooms were both very comfortable, with built in wardrobes and plenty of hanging space. Lastly, the bathroom contains a shower, toilet and basin, and again is very clean and modern. The only drawback is, like many French properties, you can smell the drains. The problem is the shower, which empties direct into the drains. This has been minimised by using a plug in the outlet and a plug in air freshener, but it is still ever present, and is the only reason I did not give the property five stars. Overall, the apartment is very well equipped, well decorated, and, as you are living in someone's home, very comfortable. It really was a home from home for us. So, thoroughly recommended, the only drawback being the bathroom.

                                                                                                      I spent four days at this lovely villa in Quillan in January. What can I say .. the villa was all I could have hoped for! The weather was amazing with wall to wall blue skies and sunshine but outside it was freezing! Not to worry, the villa was warm and cosy the whole time, thanks largely to the luxury of the underfloor heating and then of course there was the glorious woodburner, which we fired up in the evenings .. not because we needed more heat, but because it was just so great to lounge in front of it, watching the TV with a glass of the local Fitou! The villa is spotless ... the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils and crockery you could wish for plus, of course, a dishwasher! The ground floor is open plan and ideal for families or groups of friends ... you can cook, dine and doss around together, which is ideal! There is a double suite on the ground floor, which is ideal for those who might have less mobility than they'd wish and three more double rooms (two with twin beds) upstairs, with the biggest shower room I've ever seen for them to share. The garden is just beautiful ... it's got a great deck and pool area ... even though (naturally!) it wasn't being used in January!! The rear garden goes down to the River Aude and would be perfect for anyone wanting to do a bit of fishing. It might even suit those who are wild swimmers if there's enough water in the warmer seasons, that is! I think this property is a gem and would suit anyone looking for a break in the Languedoc. It's within an hour of the coast and glorious beaches of Argeles sur Mer and Canet Plage, the amazing city of Carcassonne as well as the classic towns of Foix & Limoux. Even in the depths of winter there was so much to see and do that I can't wait to return!

The photos do not lie. It is a delightful little house, as cosy and romantic as Shelley described it. Although we didn't use it, there is a lovely little terrace.Everything has been carefully thought out to make guests feel comfortable and at home, with an abundance of useful information from places to visit, how to get to them on foot and by other means it transport, as well as restaurant recommendations. The only criticism is no television, not from me, but by husband. However there was a lovely variety of CDs, and you can connect to the Internet to watch online movies, news etc.(Although secretly, I know my husband would have liked the option of television.) it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The location is fantastic being right in the middle of Carcassonne. Shopping is practically on the doorstep, and places to visit within easy walking distance. Even parking is not a problem, as it is free from 6.00pm until 9.00am, and you can find places to park for free in the streets a bit further away, although we never needed to.
