Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, sleeps 6, 1 bathroom, 1 separate WC, 142 sq m

We have rented out our villa since 2009 when we first purchased the villa as a holiday home. We have found it to be an excellent home from home and in a beautiful location. Our villa has 2 stories with a private pool, parking, a garage and is fully walled with lockable gates. On the ground floor we have a spacious open plan area with separate dining and lounge areas. The dining table seats 6 comfortably and looks on to the front terrace accessed by a sliding door. There is comfortable seating in the lounge including 2 three seater sofas. We have a modern, well equipped kitchen with a separate utility area. Our private terrace to the rear of the villa is accessible from the lounge. The terrace is tastefully furnished with a large garden table and 6 chairs and excellent for barbecuing. The pool terrace has a number of sun loungers. A WC and storage complete this floor. Upstairs we have 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom. Each bedroom has excellent storage facilities. Please enjoy Villa Rene

Trebes: Villa Rene is a 5 minute walk from the centre of picturesque Trebes. You can also enjoy tranquil walks through the vineyards just minutes from the Villa. The village of Trebes provides everything you might need during your stay, and has a variety of shops. The local supermarket is within 10 minute walk, and the larger shops are a short 5 minute drive away. You can reach Carcassonne by car in 10 mins. Carcassonne has a general market on Tuesday and Thursday and a large variety of shops and other facilities.

There are several small traditional villages close to Trebes and the views around Trebes are to be particularly enjoyed.

The Canal du Midi which starts in Sete winds its way through Trebes en route to Toulouse. A walk or cycle along the tree shaded banks is a perfect way to help digest a meal from one of the fine local restaurants located on the Canal. We provide bikes free of charge for you to enjoy the beauty of the area at a slow and more tranquil pace.

Carcassonne and beyond: The beauty of Villa Rene is that an array of activities are only minutes away from tranquil Trebes. The citadel of Carcassonne is a perfectly restored medieval town and is one of France's top attractions. The Festival de Carcassonne takes place each July and the festivities on Bastille Day, July 14, are indeed spectacular. Les Spectacles Medievaux takes place in August for two weeks. La Cite hosts other music and cultural events throughout the year.

For the 'outdoor types', riding stables are a short distance away and the nearby Lac de la Cavayere provides a variety of activities for the whole family. There are sandy beaches and woods with marked cycle routes and a beautiul walk around the Lake.

Other areas of interest which can be easily reached from Trebes include the Cathar Castles, Beziers with its massive 14th-century Cathedrale St-Nazaire and Narbonne with its Mediterranean beach.

We are about 1.5 hrs from the Pyrennes so very well placed for skiing and hiking.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Villa Rene. The house is equipped with everything you tend to forget or can't bring on holiday. We enjoyed the pool very much. Our visits to Carcassonne, Peyrepertuse and Lagrasse were a great success for the whole family. Strolling along Canal du Midi and watching the boats is pleasant as well.

Geoff was really helpful and kind. The quick and friendly communication with Anne and the details of Trèbes and the region we received are extra assets. We knew all about the good restaurants, nice places etc. I would definitely recommend this place to others because of the lovely villa and the fantastic region.

Beautiful home from home

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rene was a home from home in a beautiful part of south France. The villa is only 20 minutes drive from Carcassonne airport, which felt like a godsend when travelling with small children! The size of the villa was ideal for our party of 6 (plus a baby in a travel cot), there was plenty of space and loads of storage space in all the bedrooms. The outside space was very well kept, large and not overlooked. The private pool was of a good size for the size of the property.

The villa itself was packed to the brim with useful bits and pieces that you can't bring with you but are really handy, like cool packs and a cool box for picnics, inflatables for the pool, bikes, board games and cards, computer and printer etc. It was also refreshing that the pool towels were supplied, as so often they aren't and they always take up so much luggage space!

The village of Trebes (10 minute walk from the Villa) has the local amenties you might need (pharmacy, small supermarkets, butchers and bakery), and a handful of good/reasonably priced restaurants meaning you can have a leisurely stroll into town in the evening and don't need to venture out in the car.

The Rive Aude and Canal du Midi run through Trebes, so one morning we cycled along the canal which was lovely. We also visited La Cite in Carcassone and went to Lac de la Cavayere, which is beautiful (and the inflatable obstacle course and slides are very reasonably priced and a must if you have active teenagers/children!)

All in all, a great holiday, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Rene to family and friends. Thank you Anne, Tommy and Geoff!

Beautiful well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate well equipped villa provided everything we required a wonderful stay. The weather was very hot and my wife made full use of the beautiful private pool screened off from neighbours,the wifi and English TV provided me with a much need break from the sun. Tommy and Anne provided us with all the relevant details before departure and Geoff who met us on arrival was welcoming and gave us all the information needed about the villa and the area, thank you Geoff. The local restaurants in Trebes are well worth a visit even if your French is limited and the 1.5 hour car trip to Spain is well worth the drive. We would highly recommend the villa and should we visit this area again we would not hesitate to book again. Thank you Tommy,Anne and Geoff.

A Beautiful, incredibly well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rene is the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday. This beautiful villa is incredibly well appointed and the pool is perfect for swimming in and relaxing by. We had a fantastic week enjoying everything that the villa had to offer. Our 3 children loved playing in the pool and the outdoor eating area was perfect for relaxing in the evenings with a glass of wine. The location on the outskirts of Trebes is ideal - plenty of cafes and restaurants within walking distance and a short drive to the beautiful city of carcassonne.

The complimentary wifi was a great addition especially for the teenagers! An excellent property - highly recommended.

Wonderful week in Trebes!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks Anne for your excellent communication and help with booking and follow-up. You were a pleasure to deal with. Villa Rene was just right for the four of us; with comfy beds, well-equipped kitchen and bright, comfortable sitting area. The Internet worked fine. Too cool the week we were there for swimming but the pool would be inviting in warmer weather. Geoff, the villa mgr. was there when we needed him and was pleasant to deal with. Biked from Trebes to Carcassonne and back (4 hrs.) one day; was a highlight of our stay. Another great activity was the aerial park near Carcassonne; the kids had a blast zip-lining and working their way around the course in the trees. A safe and very reasonable ($) way to get some exercise.

Lovely villa in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Trebes, staying in Villa Rene. The villa was just as expected from the photos on the website and past reviews. It is very well maintained, with everything needed for a home from home holiday. It is located conveniently for the shops and restaurants of Trebes, which is very picturesque with the canal running through the town. We made good use of the 4 bikes provided to enjoy the cycle along the Canal du Midi and to buy the daily baguettes from the local patisserie. The pool is a good size and was used daily by all.

Villa Rene is only a 10 minute drive to the Cite of Carcassonne, which we visited frequently in the evenings for the lovely atmosphere and the excellent choice of restaurants.

We also highly recommend Lac de la Cavayere for the safe beach, water activities and the clean facilities. This also is within a 10 minute drive from the villa.

We also visited Narbonne Plage twice during our stay. This is a large clean, sandy beach on the coast approximately 50 minutes drive. The swimming is safe and the town has many shops and nice restaurants..but arrive early for easy parking!

We were very impressed with the communication with Anne and Tommy from the enquiry stage to the final booking. Their responses were prompt and friendly and happy to help in anyway. This gave us confidence in our booking.

Geoff, the property manager in Trebes, was very accommodating with our arrival plans and very knowledgeable on the property and local area.

We would happily recommend Villa Rene.

Carcassonne is at the heart of the Aude region, with all the amenities you would need for a great holiday. There are two World Heritage sites (La Cite and the Canal du Midi). The area is steeped in medieval and Cathar history with numerous castles and fortifications. Activities include walking in the Corbieres Hills, golf, horse riding, cycling, swimming and wind surfing. The area is within easy driving distance of the Mediterranean, Pyrenees, Spain and Andorra. Toulouse, Narbonne (beach) and Beziers are also close by. The villa is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac a few minutes walk from the centre of the beautiful village of Trebes. Also within a short distance are several villages of the Minervois where wine can be tasted. The Canal du Midi runs through the village, as does the River Aude. Trebes has a wide variety of shops, including bakery, chemist, banks, supermarkets and butcher. There are a number of restaurants and several on the banks of the Canal where a quiet walk can then be enjoyed.

Other Activities: Wine tasting in the local vineyards

Golf: Carcassonne boasts a challenging 18 hole golf course with a great restaurant for post game relaxation.
