Lovely Villa, Amazing Views, Will be going back!

5 of 5
I stayed with my boyfriend and the family, we had the beautiful Paris room and our own bathroom while the rest of the family took the other end of the villa with their own bathroom. The beautiful beach was an hours drive away and it was completely worth it the views along the way were amazing and there is nothing like a family roadtrip to get everyone in the mood for a day at the beach!! We spent the nights on the veranda out to the front, the real magic happens when it gets dark and the bats start to leave their hiding places!! Over all everything was clean, very imaginative with the room designs and exactly as described in the description, we are already planning our next holiday there! I ant wait for it to be fully refurbished, I would make sure that you rent a car to try the beaches and the stunning mountains to the south! Thanks for the trip! Fiona

Beautiful French Country Cottage

5 of 5
We spent a fabulous short break during October / November in this beautiful stone cottage ideally located to enjoy the scenic walks in the foothills of the Pyrenees, taking in the beautiful scenery. We visited the little village of Rennes-les-Bains and the famous church at Rennes-le-Chateau and also enjoyed a day at the famous walled city of Carcassone. The house has a lovely living area with an open fireplace, perfect for the evenings and the well equipped kitchen meant that we were able to cook well and sample plenty of the local wines whilst enjoying the open fire. In the mornings we were lucky enough with the weather, to be able to sit and enjoy the great views from the large, sunny roof terrace. The peace and tranquility of the village was just what we wanted and is certainly somewhere we would recommend and plan to visit again.
