Having been been on dozens of trips to France the location exceeded our expectations. It's convenient for Toulouse which easyjet have social flights times, (or ryanair Carcassonne). The med is about an hour, the Pyrenees not far and a host of wonderful towns nearby. The house itself is excellent. You can tell the owners have prepared it to their own standards not as a rental property (for instance the quality of beds, bedding and furniture) We were a party of 8 but the house can take 12 in 6 bedrooms comfortably so we had more than enough space. The neighbour Jean Christophe meets you on arrival who is a true gentleman. As long as you can speak franglais you'll be fine. He'll make sure that all is well during your stay. The pool is wonderful for families with steps one end and a secure cover. There is a barbeque around the pool area. The lawn is large for kids (and big kids) to run around and play. In summary a great home in a great location. Wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you to the owners who clearly love the house.

All domestic facilities were first rate. Situated in the heart of the Aude countryside, to the south the Pyrenees are within easy reach and to the North, the towns of Limoux and Carcassonne are only 15 and 40 minutes driving time respectively. The property is large: we were 4 couples and space was not an issue. The House Manager was on hand to provide useful local information on all subjects. During our stay we visited Narbonne, and Toulouse which are within easy commuting distance, but there is also wildlife to be enjoyed within the perimeter of the property. We would certainly recommend this location to friends and family and look forward ourselves to a return visit.
