                                                                                                    I spent four days at this lovely villa in Quillan in January. What can I say .. the villa was all I could have hoped for! The weather was amazing with wall to wall blue skies and sunshine but outside it was freezing! Not to worry, the villa was warm and cosy the whole time, thanks largely to the luxury of the underfloor heating and then of course there was the glorious woodburner, which we fired up in the evenings .. not because we needed more heat, but because it was just so great to lounge in front of it, watching the TV with a glass of the local Fitou! The villa is spotless ... the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils and crockery you could wish for plus, of course, a dishwasher! The ground floor is open plan and ideal for families or groups of friends ... you can cook, dine and doss around together, which is ideal! There is a double suite on the ground floor, which is ideal for those who might have less mobility than they'd wish and three more double rooms (two with twin beds) upstairs, with the biggest shower room I've ever seen for them to share. The garden is just beautiful ... it's got a great deck and pool area ... even though (naturally!) it wasn't being used in January!! The rear garden goes down to the River Aude and would be perfect for anyone wanting to do a bit of fishing. It might even suit those who are wild swimmers if there's enough water in the warmer seasons, that is! I think this property is a gem and would suit anyone looking for a break in the Languedoc. It's within an hour of the coast and glorious beaches of Argeles sur Mer and Canet Plage, the amazing city of Carcassonne as well as the classic towns of Foix & Limoux. Even in the depths of winter there was so much to see and do that I can't wait to return!

The Gite was very comfortable, cosy and well equipped. Even at this time of year we were able to relax on the outside terrace enjoying the sunshine and lovely view. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we would heartily recommend this gite for a visit, and we hope to return.
