A fabulous property - very clean, very comfortable and well equipped. We were delighted to find that the property was exactly as anticipated from the pictures. We felt relaxed and at home instantly ! The pool was very much appreciated even in October ! In the summer you need go no further, unless you want to. Anne and Frederick are perfect hosts - there when you need them to answer a question or give a recommendation but totally unobtrusive otherwise. The location is ideally placed for exploring the region; both Toulouse and Narbonne are within easy driving distance. The Intermarchè in Alzonne has pretty much all you need and the Charcuterie next door to it is a must. In addition to every type of meat imaginable there are fruit, veg and (home made ?) dishes like ratatouille and cassoulet to take away as well as cheeses and locally made ice cream. Carcassone itself is only a short distance away and the property is easibly and quickly accessible from the airport. We very, very much hope to be able to return in the future as it's such a perfect place to chill out while at the same time being close to everything you might hope for in terms of entertainment or sightseeing. Even Canelle the resident dog is a delight; very tame and playful.
We were in awe at the quality of accommodation in this exceptional property. From the street it looks quite an ordinary house but once you climb the stairs the grandeur of the apartment with its high ceilings, original floor tiles and antique furnishings takes your breath away. A very modern and extremely well furnished kitchen with its range cooker and large fridge/freezer makes it very attractive to cook meals indoors instead of going out to restaurants.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully furnished and comfortable with everything you could wish for to give a restful night’s sleep.
All the windows take in the afternoon sun and overlook the spectacular gardens laid out with flowers, shrubs, herbs and even fruit trees. There are also a few seating areas as well as a bbq area. This is a peaceful haven to sit in, listen to the birds and hear the river flowing beyond the outer wall.
All of this is only surpassed by the hosts, Anna and Michael, who are extremely welcoming and made us feel it was a privilege to stay with them. Their warmth and hospitality as well as their communication with us made our stay here very memorable. They recommended lovely places to visit in the mountains which we would never have found on our own.
We would love to have stayed here longer and certainly hope to return at some later stage. We can not recommend this property and it’s hosts highly enough.
