Great property in an ideal location
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A delightful property ideal for a couple looking for a well equipped, comfortable stay in a quiet location. Good sized, private pool. Highly recommended.
Peaceful Retreat for couples
The villas was beautiful with amazing views. We enjoyed the pool & BBQ most days & evenings. There was everything we needed in the villa. Chez Prano restaurant re-opened while we were there so we could walk down for a drink or a meal. We had a couple of nice meals in Villesque.
Perfect place to relax for 3 weeks I read 6 books & my husband read 3

Thank you very much for your kind thoughts
Wonderful villa, perfect for couples seeking peace and comfort. The house had everything we needed and two patios with chairs, tables and loungers so that we could have sun or shade then dive into the lovely pool. Good bed and shower and a fan to cool us at night. Chez Prano in village good for lunch and nearby Auberge and Place du Marches Bistro for dinner. Thanks
Thank you for the great review. Much appreciated!!
The house is lovely and well-equipped, and geared-up to fly-drive visitors.
The pool and the views are super. The patio has shade even at mid-day, and it's fairly sheltered from the prevailing NW wind
Although on a small estate of holiday properties it is remarkably quiet (except when the village is en fete!) and very private, yet shops (and wine-tasting) are just down the hill.
The one thing missing is a restaurant you can walk to - or rather, back from! - but the plums, peaches and blackberries in the garden make up for it.
The area around Durban is lovely and the roads quiet, but the Pays Cathare tourist sites are within an easy drive, and the Mediterranean beaches are reasonably close too.
It's good walking and cycling country too.
Coast/beaches - 45 minutes drive
Carcassonne airport & Perpignan airport 45 minutes
Picturesque town of Narbonne - 30 minutes drive
Supermarket, bank, tabac, bar and boulangerie are all a 10 minute walk from the villa.
There is a hotel and restaurant just outside the village (Chateau de Bonnafous) and a bar/restaurant in Villeneuve - 5 minute drive from Durban. The village of Fontjoncouse, which is a 10 minute drive has a "3 star" Michelin restaurant.
