Spacious Villa Near Carcassonne With Large Gardens, Heated Pool, Fabulous View

Family-friendly villa in Hounoux with outdoor pool
Villa Toto is set in a tiny hameau, there are only five other houses and the road doesn't lead anywhere, so it's rare to see a passing car - and the drivers always wave! It has five double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large L-shaped lounge and a fully equipped kitchen. There is room for ten to dine in comfort both inside and out, and the terraced gardens lead down to the large heated pool which has a fence to keep little ones safe. There are plenty of loungers and chairs, and the west garden is shady in the afternoons if you need to stay cool. The well-maintained gardens extend to almost an acre, and are planted with lawns, herbs and trees. There is a rose garden next to the pergola which bursts with colour and fragrance in the summer months. To keep everything looking its best all the gardens are automatically watered with recycled rainwater every night. Part of the parking area can be used as a boules court - and you'll find the boules provided along with a full size croquet set for fun on the lawns. Although rural in location, Villa Toto is just a ten minute drive to everyday shopping and is half an hour from Carcassonne. A twenty minute drive takes you to either Limoux or Mirepoix and the property is located in the fascinating Razès area of the Aude. The views from the garden are spectacular - to the south the Pyrenees, and to the north lie the Black mountains. The Mediterranean beaches are under an hour's drive to the east and the Pyrenees about the same to the south. If you search for Villa Toto on the web you'll find our own website - - with much more detail and lots of links to local activities and places of interest.
When children arrive at Villa Toto, they'll find a teddy bear tucked up in their bed to greet them and make them feel at home straight away. The bears assemble in North Buckinghamshire (our English home) in the early spring and pack themselves into a suitcase for their journey to France. We're not quite sure what they get up to when we're not there, but they have made a few short films for children who want to know about their holiday home and what there is to do at Villa Toto - you'll find one in the video section and more on our own website.
We think it's a nice idea for our younger guests to have a small furry surprise when they see their holiday bedroom for the first time - but it's up to you. Whichever way, the bears will expect to go home with their new owners.........

5/5 Excellent

Lovely, quiet, comfortable and cozy place in Southern France for exploring the region
Country home renovated with modern comforts and well maintained pool and grounds, while preserving the quiet French country charm and unobstructed views of surrounding wheat fields and vineyards and distantly the Pyrénnées. We were a family of 6, traveling from the US, looking for a clean, comfortable, quiet place as a base to explore the region for a nine days stay, and that is exactly what we got. The owners were charming, welcoming, helpful, accommodating, pro-actively responsive and warm. We booked the property about 3-4 days prior to arrival and we received a call to the US from the owner, explaining that everything will be ready, where the key will be be, and because we were arriving late, provided us with cold cuts, cheese, butter and ...wine on arrival. In addition, we received valuable and regular communications by email. When we had questions, we always received prompt responses to help us through our stay. Not recommended if you are looking for a home in the middle of action or in a town, as there is need to travel for shopping and getting to other towns. It was an idyllic stay for what we were looking for, and the owners were fantastic. Merci!

5/5 Excellent

Highly recommended destination for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful location
Villa Toto is a wonderful base for visiting this part of France. It is comfortable and very well-equipped. The pool, barbecue and outdoor dining are perfect for when the sun shines but even the odd rainy day didn't bother us because it was great to curl up with a book or catch up on some TV! The welcome pack on arrival was a godsend, given that we'd somehow managed to miss all the supermarkets on our drive. There was plenty there (meats, cheeses, bread, fruit, milk, fruit juice and wine) to provide us with a substantial meal on the first evening so that we were able to unpack and relax and leave the shopping for the next day. I should also mention that all bedding, towels and even toiletry packs were supplied which has certainly not been the case at many other places we have stayed. The villa is quite remote with wonderful views, so perfect for a relaxing break. The closest small town/village is about 10-15mins drive and has a great boulangerie, boucherie/charcuterie and a small but well-stocked supermarket. There are lots of places to visit in the area, from small, mountain-top villages to bustling towns to the spectacular Carcassonne. Whichever direction you head out in, the views are breath-taking. We often just stopped the car so that we could take it all in. I would have happily stayed for longer!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely villa in a great location
Our family spent a wonderful week at Villa Toto in July 2017. The villa is tastefully decorated and very comfortable, with all mod cons. There was plenty of room for our three generations (6 adults and two small children). We loved being in such a peaceful location in the middle of the beautiful southern France countryside, surrounded by wheat and sunflower fields. Carcassonne is about 20 minutes away and a "must-visit" location. This is a great base to explore, or just to relax around the pool. Definitely recommended!
