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.

The outside area a little way up the garden is a lovely place to sit in the evening with your meal and a drink. The pool area is a nice place to sit on a sunny afternoon - we were there at the end of September and we able to swim and sun ourselves. The Aude is gorgeous and we had some great days out to see the Pays Cathare. Thanks for a great week!

As there are no supermarkets en route from the airport, Didier welcomed us and kindly gave us a pizza and enough for the first evening, as well as a welcome bottle of wine, with a selection of tea in the morning. The gite was simple but comfortable and the location was idyllic if you like peace and quiet with amazing views. Plenty of space for a couple or with young children as the 2 further beds are on a mezzanine of the main bedroom. You definitely need a car as the nearest food shop is about 15 mins drive away at Minepoix with a beautiful mediaeval square and plenty of cafes. There are plenty of lovely walks around and the historic town of Carcassonne is about 45 mins drive away. The swimming pool is small but sufficient and there is space around with swings for young children and chairs looking out over fields towards the Pyrenees. Didier is available for whatever needed but not intrusive. We also enjoyed eating the grapes from vines on the veranda. Thank you for a very relaxing week.
