Why Esther Schaufelberger chose Villesiscle

Located at the intersection of Lauragais, the Black Mountain, the Razès, and the Cabardès, this property will be the starting point for several excursions such as the Canal du Midi and Carcassonne (both classified as UNESCO World Heritage), and several Cathar castles. In the heart of nature (a real haven of peace), flora, and fauna (paradise of squirrels; in the park with centenary trees, they will help you to just let go).

What makes this cottage unique

The swimming pool with salt water (10 x 5 m) is shared with 2 other houses, which are located on the domain as well, although they are completely independent. Batyline deckchairs are available for you. The green area around the swimming pool is vast, allowing some privacy to those who want. The available bicycles allow for going around the walnut orchards and the bridleways of the domain. All facilities (access to the road, stores, supermarket, restaurants, train station, doctors, pharmacies, etc.) are less than 3 km away from Bram.

Peaceful location and lovely host

  • 4 of 5

Esther is vey welcoming and the house was well equipped and clean. There were bikes for us to use and the Canal is only a couple of miles away. Lovely sheltered salt water pool. A car is pretty essential as the nearest shop is in Bram. Very handy for Carcassonne.
