Very well presented and comfortable apartment

5 of 5
We have just spent 2 weeks at this property and enjoyed every moment. The location was perfect for walking to the city and local sights and the pool was perfect to cool down on hot days. The apartment itself was clean, light and airy and the kitchen was well equipped. Christine was very welcoming and was flexible with our check-in which was helpful as we had a very long drive. She also answered all our questions before we arrived. We would recommend a stay here.

A lovely home in an atmospheric French village

5 of 5
Considerate, helpful and fun English owners who also live in Montlaur and love it so much they wanted to share their experience of living in a non-touristy French village with lots of character, seemingly surrounded by vineyards. We would have loved another week! I would have called it a hidden gem had it not been so popular (and not just with the English). The renovated house and comprehensive facilities were as described and very comfortable, with private parking for one car and courtyard garden through the adjacent arch. An excellent butcher within yards, a well stocked little supermarket with daily deliveries and a weekly market kept us well provisioned. A convenient base for the very many local possibilities within relatively short distances (including Lagrasse, Trebes and Carcassonne) in lovely countryside, and some super restaurants too. An interesting Cathar historic area worthy of much more exploring, another year.
