Perfect.

5 of 5
The house is lovely. Very well equipped and comfortable so very relaxing to stay in. The pool is lovely. There are pool toys and basketball hoop which the boys enjoyed. Outdoor dining/bbq area very comfortable. The location is super. We walked into Carcassonne which is fascinating to see. The surrounding area is wonderful for cycling, quiet roads and pretty country side. I would recommend the property whole heartedly. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is a bakery and friendly shop in the village too. I would love to stay here again.

Relaxing family holiday

5 of 5
We stayed in La Palmier which was located at one end of the property which made it feel very private whilst still enjoying the enourmous garden and surrounding grounds. Fabulous accommodation, fully equipped for self catering with lots of 'extras' e.g., bikes, drinks in a fridge by the pool, table tennis table & boules games. There were sun loungers & a table and chairs on our terrace and lots of other seating areas around the grounds. The pool was lovely - large and very well maintained with a child proof gate for safety. The nearest supermarket, patisserie and butchers was a short 5 min drive or 15 min bike ride away. Carcassonne and Lac de la Cavayere both worth a visit within a 30 mins drive. We would definitely reccommend.
