The house has been amazing - big enough for 3 families to both have their own space and spend time together. It is very well equipped and has amazing log burners for the chilly evenings, need to mention the comfy beds and nice towels too! The location is great, we have visited Carcassonne, Andorra, Montesegur, Lac Montbel and others. Tom, age 9 - The garden was good for kicking a ball around. The pool was a chilly but was fun to play in. Thanks, Rob, for making our stay at your lovely house so welcoming, relaxing and enjoyable.
