Property was very compact, clean and comfortable. Pool was lovely. Location was very private.

4 of 5
We had a very enjoyable time. Our accommodation was fine, the pool was most inviting and the owners, Gill and Lionel were very friendly and helpful, from giving detailed instructions as to finding the property to suggesting things to do, such as visiting a night market. Although there was little in Chalabre itself the surrounding villages were appealing and we travelled round the area to sites of interest - chateaux, abbeys and, particularly, the medieval city of Carcassonne.

Great Place To Stay

5 of 5
Lovely property set in lovely grounds. We had a great week staying here and with great weather. There were only two of us but the house is spacious enough and equipped for four people. Excellent pool. Caretakers were friendly , on hand and responsive if there were any queries. The village of Lavelanet is a fifteen minute walk from the property and has the necessary shops needed for groceries etc. Lots to do in the area in terms of places of interest, restaurants, markets and local festivities. We would happily return.
