Hot water always available, lovely shower, large very comfortable double bed, a large collection of personal things that made it feel more like a real home...books, CDs, games, maps and guides etc. Well equipped kitchen with everything we could think of. Quiet village with few people about which suited us very well. Lovely weather in October but there were electric heaters in every room had we needed them. Good location for hill, riverside and woodland walks, limestone gorges, Cathar Castles. Shopping and dining out opportunities in Quillan a couple of miles away.
