The pool is lovely. There are pool toys and basketball hoop which the boys enjoyed. Outdoor dining/bbq area very comfortable. The location is super. We walked into Carcassonne which is fascinating to see. The surrounding area is wonderful for cycling, quiet roads and pretty country side. I would recommend the property whole heartedly. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is a bakery and friendly shop in the village too. I would love to stay here again.

The pool was excellent with good shade. Two of the rooms were amazing. Superb decoration, spacious, lovely modern tiled floors. The air con in these two rooms was very quiet and effective. The bathroom and en suite toilets and showers were beautiful. Living area a good size , well equipped. Kitchen was surprisingly small but adequate. More large pots would have been appreciated for the size of our party. The other two bedrooms were ok. The main balcony /terrace is large with stunning views. We had a lovely holiday. The area has such a lot to offer. We enjoyed a day canoeing, Carcasonne city itself. A visit to Chateau de Pennautier. A beautiful anniversary meal in le Jardin en ville in Carcasonne new town was a hidden gem and a great find. Collin's, Aragon for a coffee or glass of wine and lovely view was appreciated. We would certainly choose this property again ! A wonderful time was had by all :)
