What a delightful experience! We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Villa Rani, nestled on a beautiful hillside above the small village of Donazac, near Limoux, France. This property lived up to every expectation, with a beautiful pool, lovely flowering garden with fruit trees and other vegetation, not to mention delightful landlords Jean-Pierre and Basanti, who graciously invited us to their home during our stay but also offered us privacy and a restful, uninterrupted stay. The gite was clean and neat and had special design and decorating touches executed by the owners. the kitchen was well-equipped, and all appliances worked smoothly. We loved being out in the countryside, amid the gorgeous vineyards of Aude, visiting interesting Cathar historical sites and enjoying glorious scenery, hiking through the local area, and stopping in at several caves and farms to taste and buy the local wine, cheese, and produce. We also ate some wonderful meals ay local restaurants, as well as preparing other meals at the gite enjoying local market finds. Thanks to our hosts, we had a wonderful time!
We had a great vacation at this house in Arques. It was very comfortable and elegantly decorated, with a friendly festive touch for the holidays. The adjacent woods, town and surrounding countryside are gorgeous.
