About the property

2 bedroom, 4/6 berth family apartment in Chateau

The ideal family location for winter and summer activities set in stunning mountainous scenery. This modern and recently renovated apartment is set up for our family of five, and has everything that you require for a comfortable stay. Big selling points are the football sized lawn and the patio, from which you enjoy amazing uninterrupted and private views of the Ariege mountains. The bedrooms are mezzanine and the beds are new and very comfortable. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, and the other bedroom has two singles and a futon. Downstairs we have a sofa bed for those extra guests. The kitchen is very modern and set up for fine dining. We have a large bath and shower in the modern bathroom, which has a separate toilet.

About C Smith

We are teachers with three children who spend as many holidays as possible exploring this beautiful mountainous region. We love our mountain activities just as much as love our reading days sitting on the patio. We have been coming here for over 16 years, and we have come to love this magical Cathar retreat.

C Smith purchased this apartment in 2001

Why C Smith chose Château-Verdun

This is a very special place for family outdoor holidays, or just for getting away from it all. We've gone to an effort to make the apartment comfortable and well equipped for a relaxing visit. We have limited internet for a good reason, but we do have lots of books and games, and DVDs if you need some screen time.

What makes this apartment unique

Caves, Cathar castles, the train to Toulouse or Spain, good local ski resorts, proximity to Andorre and Spain, good access to a number of airports, great mountain huts for food and accommodation when hiking, GR10 is close by.

Peaceful perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just back from France and wanted to say thank you so much for the use of the apartment. I checked the guest book and I had indeed stayed as a guest back in June 2007 in the same apartment!! It was all I remembered and felt fantastic to be back in such a great apartment and beautiful surroundings. Rae was a great help welcoming us and recommending places to go.

The apartment was well equipped and a haven to come back to each evening after our adventures. Relaxing on the patio wine in hand and views out of picture books!! Awesome to drive up the route of the mountain stage of the Tour de France - right on the doorstep, to the ski station at plateau de beille. We took one of the hiking routes up in the clouds and took in the spectacular Pyrenees views. The village Les Cabannes(5 mins walk) had a fantastic restaurant ( A La Montanha) that served wonderful local produce -a gem!!

I hope to keep your details and would love to visit again sooner rather than later.

Thanks again

Andrea and Herman

très bonne adresse pour des vacances au ski (fond, raquette, luge ) sur le plateau de beille.

Bien situé, appartement agréable dans un bel environnement.

les commerces sont très proches et de nombreuses activités proposées si le temps ne permet pas la pratique du ski ( grotte, visite de ferme..)

Bon rapport qualité/prix

Très beau séjour en famille dans un très bel appartement

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes ravis de ces 3 jours passés dans l'appartement. Nous nous y sommes sentis très bien. La location est agréable spacieuse avec tout le confort dont on a besoin. Le jardin est magnifique, nous mais surtout notre fils a adoré y jouer surtout quand tout était blanc de neige.

A notre arrivée un petit cadeau gourmand nous attendait, tres belle attention de la part des propriétaires. Nous pensons y revenir l'année prochaine pour un peu plus de temps sans doute.

Nous recommandons cette location digne de confiance.

super/ génial

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes très heureux de cette location, le lieu est ravissant, très propre, je le conseil à tous le monde, Mr Smith est une personnes très agréable, qui est disponible pour répondre aux questions malgré qu'il n'habite pas dans le coin. L'appartement est encore mieux en réalité et plus grand que sur les photos. Un vrai petit coin de paradis, de tranquillité avec tous ce qu'il faut sur place!! les couchages sont de très bonne qualités tous comme le reste de l'appartement. ne pas hésiter à louer .

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this lovely review. People who state in this part of France for the first time are amazed at how tranquil and beautiful it is. We have tried hard to make our apartment relaxing and comfortable, and we are delighted that so many people can enjoy it. Please note that the rentee arrived at 10pm so couldn't be met by my meet and greet team. Thanks once again for your review.

Très belles dépendances parfaitement aménagées

  • 3 of 5

Gîte spacieux, parfait pour 4 personnes. Propre, fonctionnel et très bien équipé dans la cuisine. Le petit cadeau gastronomique d'accueil est fort sympathique.

Très haut de plafond, (anciennes écuries!?) Nous avons une impression d'espace à l'intérieur.

La vue sur le parc par la baie vitrée, sans vis à vis avec les autres locations est très agréable.

Seul petit bémol : les 2 chambres en mezzanine ne permettent pas une grande intimité.
