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!

For example, there are shelves full of books, many CDs and lots of kitchen equipment. As should be expected in a region that has very hot weather, the windows are small and shuttered. At first we found it rather dark, though there are plenty of lamps. The small balcony is a valuable addition. Parking in a large car park a few steps up the road was easy. The village of Belvianes was delightful, and Quillan provided for all our needs, as well as being perfectly situated for exploring the region, which was really beautiful. There was plenty of good walking as well as Cathar castles to explore. We could easily have spent a fortnight here, and hope to return. Charlotte was very helpful and quick to reply to queries. We did not meet the key-holder.

The outside area a little way up the garden is a lovely place to sit in the evening with your meal and a drink. The pool area is a nice place to sit on a sunny afternoon - we were there at the end of September and we able to swim and sun ourselves. The Aude is gorgeous and we had some great days out to see the Pays Cathare. Thanks for a great week!
