We loved the sunny terrace at the front of the house where we barbecued, ate and played games into the evening, drinking the local Blanquette de Limoux. The games room and laundry on the ground floor were well equipped. The pool table and table tennis table provided much entertainment and not a little competition. This level provided a cool contrast to the sunny terrace just outside. The living area on the first floor was beautifully organised. The kitchen - dining area provided a main living space. The kitchen was well equipped with two sunny Juliet balconies overlooking the terrace onto the front of the house. We ate mostly indoors at the table which sits in front of one balcony; the red squirrel which lives opposite provided daily entertainment over breakfast as he ran along the wire into the trees and back again. The other balcony has comfortable chairs overlooking the front of the house. We loved using the mountain bikes to explore the local area using the good paths that start very near to the house. The owner, Donna, met us when we arrived. She took the time to show us around the house suggesting local attractions and also gave advice about the beaches on the east coast. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to others wanting to explore this beautiful part of France. As to what to visit... Esperaza market is on Sunday, so that is useful on your first day when most supermarkets (except the one in Esperaza) are shut. It is worth the drive to the coast to see Colliure and Banyuls sur Mer. Recommend rafting and exploring all the nearby Gorges. A lovely house from which to explore this wonderful region. Thank you, Donna.

The garden and patio were especially nice; with eclectic influences in garden design from Provencal to Japanese. It was quite evident that the English owners were international too - with a Russian mug in the sitting room! The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking and the sun room cosy to eat in.

The decking at the back of the house under the cherry tree is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy meals. The river is really fast flowing, with some man-made rapids in line with the back at the house, so there is a constant though not unwelcome sound of rushing water. We watched with fascination the kayaks trying to negotiate the rapids, and tried it for ourselves on our final afternoon - a great way to end the holiday. The house was clean on arrival, and is well equipped. The kitchen is a great size and provides a real traditional French feel. All the bedrooms are large and airy with tall ceilings. With the windows left open there is a nice breeze throughout the house that helps to keep you cool at night. Quillan has a good selection of restaurants, bars and more importantly boulangeries. It has a great public outside swimming pool that we used - the pool wasn't busy, it was cheap to enter, and it provided a great way to cool off on the hot summer days. Quillan is just under one hours drive from Carcassonne, always worth a day out. We also visited the Sieur d'Arques wine producer cooperative located in Limoux, famous for it's sparkling wines. La Maison Cerisier is a charming French town house that provides a wonderful base for exploring the Cathar trails and castles, and for enjoying the white water activities on the river Aude. A great find and we can recommend it.
