We were pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful open plan space. Very well equipped. Patio doors leading out to a terrace, equipped with barbecue and large table and chairs, with stunning views of the mountains. To the rear of the villa a lovely swimming pool, once again with a stunning back drop of the mountains. We spent a lot of our time lounging around the very private swimming pool, with temperatures around about 25 degrees. The nearest village is Caudies which is only five minutes away which has a few amenities, but we found shopping at Carrefour at St Pauls a little cheaper, and only another 15 minutes extra drive. Whilst most of our party lazed around the pool, the more adventurous of us enjoyed some of the extreme sports on offer. We started with the Via Ferratta at St Pauls in the morning, a fantastic climb and high wire traverses. Then in the afternoon we booked to do some white water rafting and some hydro speed. A fantastic day but very tiring. On our last evening we decided to go to a restaurant we spotted just down the road called Le Rebenty. We had a lovely meal, I personally enjoyed the Kwak beer served in a strange glass! A fantastic holiday in a superb location. We will be booking again especially as the owner is dog friendly.

We got a warm welcome from Richard and the house had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean and equipped with tasteful furnishings. We will return next autumn for more walking and eating!

Although we'd seen the pictures on the website, they didn't prepare us for the WOW factor we felt on arrival. It is beautifully proportioned home which is extremely well equipped and only a short walk into Quillan - definitely no more than 10 minutes dawdle where there are numerous restaurants and cafés to choose from and the town has a lovely atmosphere. The gardens are very extensive and it's beautiful to hear the river flowing. Just 100 m up the road was an ideal place for Coco our chocolate labrador to swim to her heart's content. We cannot recommend this property highly enough and would like to thank Julie for being so helpful in every aspect with queries or recommendations. Thanks Julie!
