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.

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.
