BJ Schreuder purchased this villa in 2004
This house is perfectly located for a great vacation in a quiet village, but close to all major attractions and loads of things to do and see.
The property offers a home away from home with all amenities and all bed linens, towels and even bathrobes are provided. It offers a nice garden, good sized pool, a BBQ and 2 terraces.
Wi-Fi and Satellite TV ( French, English German and Spanish) available
Carcassonne and "La Cite", the old castle are close by and is great to spend many afternoons or evenings for cocktails and open air dining. In the summer they offer a great Music and Theater festival with French and International stars
The village offers a great baker for your fresh croissants and baguettes.
We offer 4 adults bikes to explore the local area.
We have just returned from a lovely relaxing stay in this wonderful house. BJ and Iris were very welcoming hosts, the house was clean and plenty of linen was provided for our stay. It was really useful having access to the bikes for our stay too, although most of the time was spent in and around the pool. We would certainly be back if we are holidays get in the area in the future.
The house really is a home from home, the pictures do not do it justice. It has everything that you could need and more, the kitchen was the best equipped I've ever stayed in, comfortable beds, lots of outdoor toys. The highchair and cot were so well appointed, that our baby slept through (and she's not known for sleeping)! Great pool, and a perfect location, the holiday can be whatever you'd like it to be - relaxing by the pool, historical sight seeing in the Cathar region, city breaks, adventure holiday, beach holiday you could even visit Andorra or Barcelona if you're happy to drive. There is plenty of inspiration provided at the villa, so you don't need to decide beforehand either.
It was spotlessly the clean, and the glasses were sparkling (that might sound silly, but so often glasses aren't as clean as they could be). The owners were so friendly, nothing was too much trouble, it felt like using a family friend's house and we felt that if we had any problem of any sort we could have called upon them.
We shall certainly be back, as it is perfect for families of all ages. In fact it's such a find we were tempted not to review so we could book all summer next time!
The villa had everything you could possibly need from swimming pool, bikes, pretty patio and bbq to washing machine, wifi and well equipped kitchen. The village, only a couple of minutes walk away, has a wonderful bakery and local shop and two pretty good restaurants - one mainly offering pizza and the other one tapas. Carcassone was only a few minites away by car and there was also the wonderful lac de cavayeres near by which we biked to. The lovely owners BJ and Iris met us when we arrived to show us around and answer any questions. All in all I cannot fault our stay here and would gladly return in the future.
Nous avons passé un excellent week-end.

A very enjoyable short stay in a beautiful and well appointed property.

If you like day trips we would recommend Montpellier or Perpignan and use use their nearby beaches for a late afternoon.
The whole area is ideal for cycling, on mountain and street/racing bikes and trails have been prepared. For the leisure cyclist we can recommend the route next to the Canal du midi, since it is nice and flat !!
