Fabulous cottage in beautiful quiet location

5 of 5
Loved the property, the location and the area so much that we booked again for next year before we even got back home! The cottage is in a secluded hamlet, with a balcony overlooking the Pyrenean foothills, and a kitchen looking onto the village square and fountain. It is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, an eclectic array of books and dvds, and well furnished. The surrounding area is perfect if you want a mix of sites (castles, mountain villages, and of course Carcassonne), hiking, rivers to swim in, and some fantastic (if a little hilly) cycling routes. We stayed a week this year, and have re-booked for 2 more next, and already have a long list of things we wish we had done (in between relaxing). The house is a little out-of-the-way - nearest morning bread is 4km away - and the locals filling their watering cans at the fountain the square in the evening is the most hustle-and-bustle you all see, but as a reprieve from London-life, for us that was perfect. And finally, Clare (the owner) was extremely friendly and helpful and provided lots of useful information.

A wonderful and hot holiday hosted in an excellent

5 of 5
An excellent villa in a location close to all the activities the Aude valley can offer. The house is spacious and fully equipped; perfect for a large group wishing to self cater during their stay. The pool is an excellent feature and was well maintained regularly. We would thoroughly recommend the restaurant only a half hour way in the forest opposite the house, and the canyoning tours in the Gorges de Galamus. The listing was accurate and met our expectations and we would recommend to friends.
