The photos do not lie. It is a delightful little house, as cosy and romantic as Shelley described it. Although we didn't use it, there is a lovely little terrace.Everything has been carefully thought out to make guests feel comfortable and at home, with an abundance of useful information from places to visit, how to get to them on foot and by other means it transport, as well as restaurant recommendations. The only criticism is no television, not from me, but by husband. However there was a lovely variety of CDs, and you can connect to the Internet to watch online movies, news etc.(Although secretly, I know my husband would have liked the option of television.) it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The location is fantastic being right in the middle of Carcassonne. Shopping is practically on the doorstep, and places to visit within easy walking distance. Even parking is not a problem, as it is free from 6.00pm until 9.00am, and you can find places to park for free in the streets a bit further away, although we never needed to.

Lovely scenery, gardens and swimming pool overlook surrounding countryside. Good location easy access to the Mountains, Mediterranean, Carcassonne and Toulouse. Host very friendly with good local knowledge. A great family getaway.

The owner was extremely helpful. We were lucky to see The Tour de France cycling race pass by! The medieval town of Mirepoix, the city of Carcassonne(UNESCO World Heritage Site & Canal de Midi are nearby. The beach at Narbonne & Pyrenees are 1 and a half hours away or just relax by the pool!
