The road from Alzonne - a handy but not picturesque village - is only a few hundred metres away though scarcely heard. Just two of us stayed in the property so we had loads of space and the best bedroom. The bedrooms were painted in a soothing distressed grey with beautifully toned curtains and bed linen. The kitchen is well provided with clean and modern equipment. The pool is very well maintained by Frederic, heated to a pleasant 27c. We didn't use the spacious living area as the weather was, overall good. Frederic and Anne are attentive yet unobtrusive hosts, always concerned that we were OK. They also have the most gorgeous dog we would happily have brought home! The property may not suit some as there are a lot of stairs, some quite steep, and the pool is about 1.4m deep except on the tiered steps. If we hadn't booked our return hotels we would have loved to have stayed longer.

DVD's, books, toys and CD's to use, beautiful pictures hung of the local flora and impressive ornaments and lamps made it feel so welcoming and homely. the property was clean and everything worked as it should, plenty of supplies which we topped up as we believe in "paying it forward", it means so much to turn up to a property especially when you've 2 shattered small people in tow and there is tea and coffee and essentials already in! the local area is stunning and peaceful. so much to see and the views are beautiful of the son capped Pyrenees in the distance. Mirepoix is a very short drive away and the buildings are exquisite in the old town. plenty of eateries and a good market. fanjeaux is usefully just down the road, my mum and partner cycled to the bakery and grocery to collect essentials a couple of times! and the Miche from the bakery is a definite must. we'll definitely be back.
