Carole and Yves' beautiful property is located on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Severine, on a south facing hillside, deep in the Languedoc countryside, with outstanding all-round views from sunrise to sunset. The historic mediaeval market town of Mirepoix is a pleasant five minutes drive away where a great selection of boulangeries/patisseries await for breakfast. A very large, bright, open plan living room/kitchen with comfortable sofas, sits at the centre of the house and provides direct access to the south facing patio for alfresco dining. The master bedroom, with adjoining shower room, is located to one side of the living room, and three further bedrooms and second shower room lie a few steps down on the other side. Externally, the large, well-tended garden is a safe haven for young children, but Carole and Yves also own many acres of the adjoining ground where they have set up a fun "golf course" between the trees. The holiday "star" however, is the heated outdoor swimming pool, safely fenced off from the garden in a sun trap, and provided with paved surround and sun loungers; an adjoining, brick-built BBQ overlooks the swimming pool. Our party of eight, (six adults and two small children), spent a wonderful fortnight in Severine. The property is well equipped, but we would suggest two small improvements. First, we travelled by plane from Scotland, so baggage was greatly restricted. It would benefit house guests enormously to have towels provided, as is the case in most other properties we have rented, especially when a swimming pool is on site. Second, although bed linen was provided it could have been in better condition, and it would be preferable to have additional bed linen for parties like ours that stay a second week. This would have avoided the "wash days" in the middle of our holiday! These are very insignificant issues however; Carole and Yves are a lovely couple, and it was an absolute pleasure for our family to occupy their wonderful home for two weeks in glorious sunshine.
