Everything about the villa, the garden and the village was perfect. The villa is spotless, beautifully appointed, very comfortably furnished and equipped with absolutely everything we could possibly have needed. The garden was gorgeous, with amazing, far-reaching views across the village and surrounding vineyards -stunning sunrises. We loved having the pool at our disposal, which was very welcome on the particularly warm days. We stayed at the villa with two of our adult sons and their partners and found that we had the option of spending time together, but could also find a quiet nook to sit and read/ listen to music undisturbed; the villa (and garden)lends itself to this very well. The village itself is very beautiful, we loved hearing the church bells chime on the hour - and again a minute later - the snooze button! There is a tiny bar under the church which opens on Thursday and Friday evenings - very interesting mix of local folk and ex-pats. We had great vegetarian food and live music there on Friday - great for our group - we were made very welcome. The location of the villa is perfect for many days and nights out. We particularly enjoyed Foix - chateau and town - and the drive beyond into the mountains. We caught the start of one leg of the Tour de France leaving Toulouse on Saturday afternoon, very exciting carnival atmosphere. Owner Clare was very accommodating, great, prompt communication, lots of helpful information regarding local activities. The house manager, Barry, visited us a couple of times to ensure that we were happy with everything, and we spotted him early in the mornings maintaining the pool. We also met Barry's wife at the bar in Friday, which was very nice. We would love to stay at the villa again, would definitely recommend, next time, we will factor in a train trip to Narbonne and Barcelona. Thank you for helping us to create happy holiday memories.

The pool is a further away from the house and is also bigger than it looks online. Our teenage kids spent most of their time in the pool, but there was also plenty of space to play badmington and frisbee - the garden is huge. The property is located up in the hills above the plains where Carcassonne is located. We did the big shopping there and then topped up on bread locally day to day. The boulangerie in Montelieu was open on Sunday but not Monday. The house is remote and peaceful - part of its appeal for us. It was really hot so we didn't walk as much as we thought we would! The beds were comfy and we slept well when we weren't out looking at all the stars we could see in the pitch black nights. The property has good wifi and British TV for evening entertainment. We felt quite at home and had a wonderful time.
