We stayed at this villa for the first week of September 2017 and really enjoyed our stay. You enter the property through gates at the caretakers house and drive up a tree lined driveway to a circular driveway outside the house. The design of the house is such that you enter through the front door and go immediately up the stairs to the living area of the house (or you could walk up the slope at the side of the house that will take you around to the pool area) We only used 4 of the 5 bedrooms so there was plenty of room There is a lovely bright living room. The kitchen is fine with all the appliances you could need (especially a nice coffee maker that went down well with us) The best feature of the house and the one that got most use is the pool area The pool was lovely and nicely heated. It was nice to chill out by the pool with a glass of wine as dusk came on and watch the occasional bat swoop down. There is free wifi that is picked up in the dining room and pool area but does not extend to the bedrooms The house is very close to the airport and a big shopping centre where you can pick up plenty of cheap wine! Also it’s only a few km’s from Carcassonne city and near to such nice towns as Lagrasse, Limoux and especially Montsegur which is well worth a visit for the climb up to the old ruins. The view is remarkable and the walk/climb which only takes about 30 minutes is not too arduous. If I was coming back to this area I would definitely consider this property again

Excellent Gite

5 of 5
The location of the gîte is excellent, very convenient for Mirapoix and and visiting an number of other places in the region. The gîte is well equipped and spacious, with a wonderful swimming pool. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. We had a splendid holiday and would go back.
