The Mediterranean beaches of the Aude coastline are a huge attraction to the area, with endless stretches of golden sand lining the shore.

The peaks of the Pyrenees are a fantastic natural facility.

Par son accueil et la disposition des lieux l'ensemble des parties communes (WC compris) est totalement accessible en fauteuil roulant, ainsi que la terrasse/cuisine d'été. Au RdC on trouve une charmante chambre avec salle de bains privative et toilettes, également aux normes tourisme/handicap. Ainsi l'éternel souci, et les questionnements habituels avant de prendre possession des lieux est vite estompée et il devient alors agréable de pouvoir observer du dehors les grandes plaines environnantes et la vue imprenable sur les Pyrénées... Les propriétaires sont charmants et avenants et disposent de produits "maison" délicieux. Vivement recommandé donc!

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.

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.
