Fantastic property, great location
The villa is a lot bigger and nicer than it looks in the photos. The pool is big and safe and was kept very clean during our stay. Deck chairs were the best I've had, very comfortable. We used some of the bikes from the house (thank you) and hired others - i would definitely recommend biking, although sometimes it's easier to use the roads than the canal paths! Weather was lovely and hot but the house stayed cool and there are also fans in the bedrooms which were a blessing. The house is very well equipped, and was very clean when we arrived. The tennis court behind the house is free and in good condition, and was available every morning when we went around. There are lots of nice restaurants in nearby villages which are a very short drive or a slightly longer bike ride. The fripperie/ vintage clothing shop in the village was a late but interesting discovery. Nice markets nearby in easy reach, and fresh bread available at the village shop each day (an easy walk or cycle). I would highly recommend this property, which is also an easy drive from Carcassonne airport.
Thanks for taking the time to post a review Amanda and we are so glad you enjoyed the house and area as much as we do.
Home from home
As usual we had a great time at this house. It has everything you need and a lovely big pool. Handy wee shop for bread every morning and for bits and pieces you might need. Wine tasting just 100 yards from your door .
If you are looking a quiet peaceful holiday just to recharge your batteries this is the place for you.
Thanks again Janice and Peter for lending us your house
Thank you for the lovely comments Heather & for being such nice guests. See you again next year
Great property with lots of space in a lovely area
It's not easy finding a holiday house that suits 3 generations but this was great for us. The house is well equipped, including toys, bikes, beach and pool equipment, Great and has loads of space - inside and out. We made good use of the pool and very welcome, shaded deck area which also has a large table with bench seats where we enjoyed eating. The separate bedroom with ensuite bathroom enabled grandparents to 'escape' and have some privacy.
The village is VERY quiet but charming. It has a good shop and we enjoyed some very pleasant strolls round - the local wine is very worth sampling too! There is a small, pleasant park area at the rear of the property with a children's play area, tennis court, etc which was great when our daughter needed some energy burning off on quiet days at home.
The area is beautiful with many interesting places to visit. We particularly enjoyed Fontfroide Abbey and Minerve and trips to the coast for some lovely beaches (and seafood). A car is necessary to get around.
Jan is very helpful and responded very promptly to all queries and provided us with lots of information and tips.
lovely property in a lovely location
This is a lovely property in a nice quiet village on the banks of canal du midi.The house is nice and clean and has everything you need and more.There is a handy small shop on the banks of the canal ,great for bread in the morning and you can order a pizza if you want,there is also a pizza van on tues nights and a snack van on thurs night [great if you don't want to cook but also don't want to get dressed up for a restaurant]. The restaurants in the villages on both sides of paraza are very nice[don't know about one in the village as we went one tues night and it wasn't open]
Plenty to do in this area and plenty to see but as it was sooooo hot when we were there we didn't do a lot as it was hard to drag yourself away from the fantastic pool,don't know what we would have done without it .If you have children there is a lovely big secure garden .
We don't usually go to the same place twice but hope to go back again for the third time
