Why Penny Kaye chose Fontiers-Cabardès

Calm, sunny, walkable to village if you don't feel like driving into town! Relaxing by completely private pool. Lovely evenings star gazing on the terrace in the evenings.

Two t.v.'s one in the study and one in the lounge, great if someone wants to watch a film and the other sport!

Well equipped kitchen for those who want to be the chief on holiday!

Games room very useful on hot days and for fun evenings

Total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeks stay and what a relaxing week it was. Everything we needed and more, but you cannot put a price on how peaceful it was, to sit there with a glass of malepere and watch the sun go down was my idea of heaven.

A lovely house in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in a well equipped and spotless home. The location was great for visiting Carcasonne, the medieval cite, the Cathar castles and various vineyards. The famous market in Revel on Saturday was full of local produce and well worth a visit.

The local village bar, a short walk made for an enjoyable evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and highly recommend this house.

Really lovely property - ticked all the boxes!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week. The house was lovely -really cosy and homely and with everything we needed, and more. The owner, Penny, was really friendly and helpful from start to finish. Our children loved the pool , me and my husband loved the pool table ! And we all loved the video library - a real blast from the past. It was the perfect setting for a relaxing week and we would definitely recommend it . Carcassonne is only about 30 mins away and well worth a visit. There is also lac montagnes in nearby Mezmet which is great for the kids.

Beautiful villa in rural location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for a week with our two children, one of which is disabled, this villa has great disabled access. The villa was stunning a real home from home has everything you would require and more. The location was amazing in the foothills of the mountains. There was a local shop and bar/restaurant in the village. The owner was a lovely welcoming lady who was very helpful. There was lots of information in the villa on things to do in the area. I would strongly recommended the safari at sigean for the children. I would highly recommend this villa, even more beautiful than the pictures.

Thank you very much for our stay we all loved it.

Perfert getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 7 friends in early August and we had a fantastic holiday, principally due to the villa. The rooms are capacious, clean etc., but we spent a lot of time on the terrace and around the pool, which were both perfect.

The owner was very communicative both before and during our stay and was always on hand to help if required. It's a good location too, situated at the top of a peaceful village (albeit with bar and shops).

I would heartily recommend this to anyone and everyone.
