5/5 Excellent

August 2018
Lovely house in a picturesque location. Nice, quiet and rural. The house is charming, very spacious and well appointed. Plenty of grounds outside to run and play around in. The pool is to the side of the house and is fully fenced and gated for security. The shallow end is quite deep, our 6 year old couldn't touch the floor; but apart from that it was nice and warm and perfectly clear. With some lovely shady trees to the higher terrace above the pool, to escape the hot afternoon sun under. Jerome and Genevieve were very friendly, attentive and helpful which helped make our stay excellent. Saint Papoul is a lovely little village and the Abbey is well worth a visit. Lots to do in the local area excepting Carcassonne: Castelnaudery, Chateau du Saissac is just down the road, Canal du Midi, Bram, Mirepoix, Fanjeaux, Gouffre de Cabrespine, moulin a papier at Brousses - make your own paper, Chateau de Pennautier (great kids play area under the trees by the carpark), or just into the Montagne Noir. Or further afield to Narbonne and its beaches. Overall highly recommended

4/5 Good

Nature et tranquillité
La maison est très grande avec des plafonds très hauts. On s’y sent bien. La piscine est de taille très correcte pour enchaîner les longueurs. Le calme nous a accompagné tout au long de notre séjour. Les propriétaires ont fait preuve d’une discrétion extrême.

5/5 Excellent

havre de paix
Lieu parfait pour des vacances en famille. La maison est très fonctionnelle et la piscine géniale avec les enfants (hyper équipée). Nos hôtes ont été attentifs à nos besoins pendant tout le séjour. Nous recommandons vivement ce lieu.

4/5 Good

Agréables vacances estivales en famille !
Un accueil très agréable par les propriétaires y compris des petites attentions à base de spécialités locales. Le gîte est spacieux, bien équipé, confortable tant au niveau de la literie que des assises. Tout est là pour s’amuser en famille dont la grande piscine avec plusieurs hauteurs dans le bassin ce qui est sympa pour jouer, agréable aussi pour nager, pour se prélasser sur les transats et jeux aquatiques! De nombreux jeux de sociétés sont également à notre disposition. Les propriétaires nous ont recommandé quelques bonnes adresses gourmandes :-) Un séjour sans fausses notes ! Encore merci.

5/5 Excellent

Discret et à l'écoute
Ma famille et moi avons passé un très bon séjour ! Maison très bien équipée. Un bon moment passé dans cette location. A 30/45 min des sites à visiter ! Je ne peux que conseiller !
