Lovely home in a traditional quiet village

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from a lovely stay in this beautiful traditional house. Everything was as described by the owner and the house was immaculately clean and the pool well maintained. The house is very well equipped and there is nothing missing. The very private garden area is a sun trap and is protected from any breeze. The village was very peaceful and quiet. Although there is no shop in the village this probably helped keep it so quiet and it was only a short drive to the excellent baker in the nearby village which also had a shop (open Sunday mornings) and a pleasant pizza restaurant. The house is very well located with many amenities within 20 minutes. We especially enjoyed visiting the market in Mirepoix and for a longer journey (2 hours) we would highly recommend a trip to Andorra where the duty free prices have to be seen to be believed! We look forward to having the chance to visit again.

Agréable maison à la campagne

  • 5 of 5

Maison conforme à l'annonce. Spacieuse, confortable, bien équipée et aménagée, il y a tout ce dont on a besoin...toutes les pièces sont bien pensées, les chambres sont de bonnes tailles, la literie de bonne qualité. L'extérieur est très agréable avec la piscine. Nous avons passé un agréable séjour au calme...le village est à l'écart des grandes villes, mais c'est ce qui fait tout son charme. On recommande vivement pour une semaine de repos et de tranquillité ! Un plus, le Wifi gratuit avec la box (non spécifié dans l'annonce), très pratique...

Beautiful home in small friendly village

  • 5 of 5

The house was even better than described, with large rooms, comfortable beds with gorgeous linen and a great outdoor area by the pool. There is everything you could need for a fabulous relaxing holiday. Spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, the house was a delight. A nearby village has a bakery and the towns of Mirapoix and Limoux have great markets and restaurants. We couldn't find a coffee within walking distance but Fiona has all the makings in the house. A great holiday.

Peaceful hideaway in France

  • 5 of 5

Lovely village house with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Although there aren't any shops/restaurants in the village, there are many within a very short, pleasant drive. The countryside is beautiful. We are glad we didn't opt to stay somewhere in Carcassonne, as it was very busy. This house was within easy driving distance of many places of interest. Lots of walking in the immediate area.

Les Lavandières is a typically French end of terrace house in the heart of this pretty hilltop village situated in the heart of some of the loveliest scenery in this region known as the Razés.

The village of Escueillens is situated in the Aude and our house offers you a comfortable and warm welcome, providing an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful and very varied part of France. With the two World Heritage Sites of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi within 30 minutes drive of the house, whether it is boating on the Canal du Midi, cycling or walking through some of the most beautiful countryside in France, canoeing down the river Aude, exploring this land steeped in heritage, or relaxing on the beach and swimming in the warm Mediterranean, you will find all this and more in the Aude region.

For keen walkers, there are plenty of beautiful walks locally and for those who prefer to cycle, bicycles are available to hire locally. For those who enjoy sailing, boats are available to hire at Lac de Montbel to the south or Lac de la Ganguise near Castelnaudary.

You are ideally placed to visit the incredible fortified city of Carcassonne (about 25 mins), Montsegur and other Cathar mountain fortresses. Andorra and Albi are within reach, as is the Mediterranean coast and 15 minutes away you will find Mirepoix, one of France’s prettiest medieval market towns. Beyond Foix (45 mins) is the longest underground river in Europe where you can take a boat trip through the stalagmites and stalactites. Relax along the tranquil Canal du Midi which wends its way towards the Mediterranean, perfect for walking, cycling or hiring a boat for the day. Local wines can be tasted at most of the Domaines and especially recommended is the Blanquette de Limoux – a sparkling wine made by a process older than that of Champagne.

Whether it is relaxation, activities or culture, you won't be disappointed.
