Accessible location, fantastic pool. Homely feel!

5 of 5
We stayed at the property for 3 weeks through July/August 2018. The property has a 'home from home' feel to it with everything you need in a holiday home (and more besides). The pool is huge, well maintained and wonderful to spend time in. We found the property in a fantastic location for exploring Carcassonne, the coast and many other spots dotted around the surrounding area. Our favourite place Lagrasse (beautiful river to swim in) is only 35 minutes drive away. I would highly recommend staying in the property as it has a real comfortable feel about it. We stayed for 3 weeks and it felt as though we had settled into our own home. I think this is the type of feeling you want from an extended period away from home. Highly recommend!

Home from Home close to Carcassone

5 of 5
We spent a lovely week here in July, a family of 5 with children ranging from 3-12. The villa was the ideal home from home for us. Located overlooking vineyards on the edge of Palaja the villa is ideally located within walking distance of the village centre and yet very private. In the village there is collection of shops which include a boulangerie, small supermarket, pharmacy, a small eatery serving pizza, cheeses and drinks, and a fine butchers. There is also a nice restaurant on the edge of the village towards Carcassone. The lake is a 5 minute drive and has a sandy beach, a pebble beach and an area with inflatables in the water which our older boys loved. A 10 minute drive to Carcassone where there is the option of visiting the Medieval city or the newer part of the city, both excellent days out. The pool was ideal, with a large shallow step which was great for our 3 year old to splash about in. There are several loungers located around the villa to catch the sun or remain in the shade throughout the day. The hammock was a favourite for reading and relaxing. All in all a great week in a lovely villa.
