The accommodation is very cosy and comfortable and just right for two people. The tiny kitchen in a cupboard is very easy to work in and everything we needed was to hand. The accommodation was very clean and the location was just right to explore the area.

The gas BBQ on the terrace was great to use on sunny evenings. The pool looked nice but unfortunately the weather wasn't nice enough when we were there for us to use it (May 1st-6th). A car is essential and it takes about 8-10 minutes to get into the nearest town of Limoux where there are plenty of shops. There are loads of interesting sites to see in the area although some travelling is needed.
