Hot water always available, lovely shower, large very comfortable double bed, a large collection of personal things that made it feel more like a real home...books, CDs, games, maps and guides etc. Well equipped kitchen with everything we could think of. Quiet village with few people about which suited us very well. Lovely weather in October but there were electric heaters in every room had we needed them. Good location for hill, riverside and woodland walks, limestone gorges, Cathar Castles. Shopping and dining out opportunities in Quillan a couple of miles away.

The property is spotless and is very well equipped. The photos don't do it justice, particularly the ones of the outside area. We've experimented with a few locations in the Aude/Ariege area and this is very central for getting easily and quickly to the best that the area has to offer. Plus a door to door journey time of 30minutes from Carcassonne airport is great. Communication with the agents before during and after the rental was perfect. Happy to recommend.
