Wonderful family rental property in a great location. Spacious house & well kept grounds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Domaine Jasso for 2 weeks this summer as a family of 13 including one toddler. Property perfectly suited to this type of gathering. Grounds are incredibly secure giving the kids free reign to form their own adventures. The pool was great and easily big enough for all of us - provided some good shade by the trees in the afternoon. So many activities for the kids: tree house, zip wire, bmx track, table tennis, trampoline, film room (great for rest from the sun), feeding the animals....list goes on!

The house itself is very spacious with plenty of room for noisy kids & quieter areas for relaxed grandparents! All rooms very neat & tidy with good bathrooms. Bathrooms were shared but with a little planning, there were no arguments at shower time.

Property is in a great location - nestled amongst the very well kept vineyards but only 15-20min walk from La Cité or slightly further across the vieux pont to get to the Bastide. Lots of restaurants/bars within walking distance so plenty of opportunity to enjoy the local rosé!

Car needed for trips to supermarket (main centre de commerce out towards airport).

Stéphane is a great host - always responsive if we had a query & full of useful information. Merci Monsieur!

And last but not least, Heidi, the resident guard dog. A gentle giant of a St Bernard but a great character. My son has dog phobia but Heidi really helped in putting his fears to rest. The kids wanted to bring her back to England!

Merci encore Stéphane - a great holiday at a highly recommended location.

A luxurious and well appointed manner house situated amidst a menagerie and vineyard.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very fine stay. The children (and adults, for that matter) loved feeding the animals. They named many! The swimming pool was also a great source of pleasure. The house worked well for eleven of us. The kitchen is trois etoiles. There are actually more bathroom facilities than listed (all in great condition), although I do think it should be noted that three of the six bedrooms are NOT air conditioned (the remainder of the very large house is, and it also provides wonderful media facilities). Carcassonne the Cite is a fifteen minute walk along a beautiful riverside path, while the town is a 3 or 4K drive. The Canal du Midi provides an excellent place for runs, walks, and bike rides. Principal places w/i a reasonable drive are Toulouse, Albi, Narbonne, beaches by the sea and endless sights in the Pyrenees--lovely villages, Cathar mountain-top castles, hiking trails, etc. The host/owner was present to greet us, gave us lots of info, and was fabulous in addressing the minor crisis of rental car keys locked in the car trunk. This is a place for a large group--you can stay self contained on the estate with plenty to do, or use it as a base of Occitan operations.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped property with enough space for a large family or group to be together or find a bit of space. Our family loved the gardens for sunbathing football and frisbee games. The pool was great really deep at one end and safely fenced off. The trampoline was a great hit particularly with the younger memebers of the family. Everyone loved feeding the animals. Quite a walk from the Cite but with the amount we ate and drank this was a good thing. The owner Stéphane was very helpful and friendly, but most off all we loved the family dog who resides on site a beautiful gentle giant.

Maison fantastique

  • 5 of 5

Selected this property for a family reunion and the house and grounds exceed our expectations. This large family house was very comfortable and with room and amenities to cater for 12 people ranging from 5 to 90 year olds.

Stéphane was a very gracious host, who welcomed us all and spent enough time to show us around the house and garden. He was also very responsive on any further queries we had about the property. He went above and beyond, driving some of the family back to Carcassonne Airport.

Merci beaucoup, Stéphane for allowing us to experience this oasis in this part of France

Superbe !

Immense maison très confortable. Cuisine épatante!

Malgré le vent et la fraîcheur du mois d'avril, les enfants ont bien profité des équipements extérieurs.

Propriétaire particulièrement accueillant et disponible!
