Stayed here for a week at the start of October. Camille was there to greet us and show us around, which was really helpful.
The gite is full of character, we enjoyed our time there very much. It is really well equipped and we had everything we needed. It was quite cool in the evenings but there was plenty of logs for the fire so we were nice and cosy. The master bed was extremely comfortable so we slept very well. Benedict and Camille had kindly kept the pool open for us, very refreshing on a hot October day 😊
We enjoyed getting out to explore the nearby towns and villages, all full of character and charm. Carsaconne is amazing and worth a visit. Local markets a great place to get fresh local produce. Plenty of walks and cycle routes along the canals too.
The only thing that we would have found useful was the information in the gite to be available in English too, but we coped fine without it and had a lovely week.
A fabulous property - very clean, very comfortable and well equipped. We were delighted to find that the property was exactly as anticipated from the pictures. We felt relaxed and at home instantly ! The pool was very much appreciated even in October ! In the summer you need go no further, unless you want to. Anne and Frederick are perfect hosts - there when you need them to answer a question or give a recommendation but totally unobtrusive otherwise. The location is ideally placed for exploring the region; both Toulouse and Narbonne are within easy driving distance. The Intermarchè in Alzonne has pretty much all you need and the Charcuterie next door to it is a must. In addition to every type of meat imaginable there are fruit, veg and (home made ?) dishes like ratatouille and cassoulet to take away as well as cheeses and locally made ice cream. Carcassone itself is only a short distance away and the property is easibly and quickly accessible from the airport. We very, very much hope to be able to return in the future as it's such a perfect place to chill out while at the same time being close to everything you might hope for in terms of entertainment or sightseeing. Even Canelle the resident dog is a delight; very tame and playful.
