Magnificent French manor with the most beautiful main bedroom and lounge room. We sat outside on a wonderful garden terrace all week for all meals,We also enjoyed walking through the surrounding farmland and vineyards as well as riding to the canal de midi. Claudia is very welcoming and generous with lots of small touches that made us feel so at home - we will be back as it was the most perfect relaxing holiday we have had in years

Our party consisted of six adults and one child (aged three) and the size of the house meant that we could spread out and not be under each other's feet! The house itself was really charming and had all the facilities one required even though it's a very old building (but beautifully maintained). The grounds are extensive and well managed as is the large swimming pool a short walk from the house. The village is only about 20 minutes walk away (uphill going but downhill coming back!) and Filou made numerous appearances both in the gardens and on the journey to the village. The village itself has a good selection of small shops and there is an Intermarche just outside the village with a Carrefour in the town of Bram, about three miles away. Mustn't forget to mention Sylvie who was really helpful and who seemed to be on the go all the time. All in all a wonderful stay and would recommend it.

The newly renovated apartment is bright spacious and furnished to a high standard. There is everything that you would need while staying here. As there were only two of us we used the bedroom with the double bed which was very comfortable. The sitting room with the French doors open, sitting by the balcony in the evening with a glass of wine was very pleasant. You have a lovely atmosphere of everything going on in the square below. Andrea the owner gave us lots of information and communication was excellent. We really enjoyed our stay here and if returning to Carcassonne would stay here again.
