Best part for us was the outside space, the pool was great and much needed as the weather was generally around 30°C . We hired a car and enjoyed touring the area. Only downside was that taxis were hugely expensive... €20 euro each way into La Cite Medieval at Carcassonne (it was approx 4km ). Eric the owner was very pleasant and helpful .

Pat and Wendy were welcoming, friendly and very thoughtful. We arrived after a long journey to everything we needed for a welcome French lunch with baguette, cheese and wine! They really cared and were anxious to ensure our holiday was great...which it was. The property itself is perfectly situated as a base for exploring this fabulous region. We had fantastic trips to Montpellier, Carcassonne and Sete...all within an hour. Highlight of the trip was kayaking down the River Orb. Everything was perfect!
