A little gem!

5 of 5
A brilliant holiday let, centrally located in a beautiful French village. It had everything we needed (a family of 4) and is a perfect base to explore the wonderful region. A DVD player would be a welcome addition, that said we would definitely return.

Great base for exploring Carcassone and beyond. Many thoughtful touches to make our stay enjoyable. Great instructions to find the most convenient car parking close to the apartment. Many great restaurants to try nearby.
