                                                                                                      4 of 5

The owner and local staff were quick to answer any question we had. A little more information on how to use the washing machine and heaters would be helpful. Also how to access the tennis court and swimming pool area (I know it was closed) and back garden. The village was lovely and the flat was in a convenient area to visit local attractions. Loved our stay and would definitely recommend this property

For example, there are shelves full of books, many CDs and lots of kitchen equipment. As should be expected in a region that has very hot weather, the windows are small and shuttered. At first we found it rather dark, though there are plenty of lamps. The small balcony is a valuable addition. Parking in a large car park a few steps up the road was easy. The village of Belvianes was delightful, and Quillan provided for all our needs, as well as being perfectly situated for exploring the region, which was really beautiful. There was plenty of good walking as well as Cathar castles to explore. We could easily have spent a fortnight here, and hope to return. Charlotte was very helpful and quick to reply to queries. We did not meet the key-holder.

The property is nice, large and very well equipped. The pool is large and private with plenty of loungers. Not too far from Mirepoix, there are lots to do around the area. The owners I found to be very responsive to all queries. In all we had a great time, a week just did not seem long enough. Would definitely stay here again.
