The location of the property was fantastic and we did have a lovely week there. The garden chess, pool and BBQ were really enjoyable additions.
However, it was clear that dogs had been in the property as the lounge smelt very strongly of them and it was a shame that previous occupants had also sat in the lounge in wet swimwear bleaching the sofas, thus requiring a note to be put out by the owner requesting that people did not do this. The sofas were sadly covered in debris and the property when we arrived was not as clean as it might be. The owner left notes for people to empty the bins on leaving but we found cardboard, toilet rolls and empty condom wrappers. The kitchen was indeed well provided for but a lot of the steak knives were broken, with blades coming out of the shafts and most knives were blunt. The kettle was not great, without a great pour and causing a burn on my foot.
Although, there was no linen provided...this means no bed covers, bed sheets, towels. Tea towels were there as well as one oven glove
Its a great property, lovely location and the pool was good but its the detail that lets it down.
Lovely house and nice stay
We had a lovely stay at this nice house. The property is close to the wine fields, and a few minutes walk from a small village with a restaurant and a few shops. The house is not new, but it has a nice atmosphere and is well equipped for a relaxing vacation. We experienced some noise from the machines working in the surrounding wine fields, this was a bit disturbing especially during night time. Everything else was according to our expectations, and we would love to come back.
Spacious, well equipped inside and outside. Mr Chauvaux dealt promptly with every enquiry we had.
The property was clean and tidy. Outside the lovely 8x4 pool didn't go below 26c (temperatures were in the high 20's and low 30's even in the 3rd week of September). We loved the outdoor spaces and the garden was we'll maintained as was the pool area. Even the chess set had been dusted down. It is a large property both inside and outside so for 2 of us we were very comfortable. Kitchen was extremely well stocked - enough dishes and glasses for an army! We used the air conditioning a few times which worked efficiently. We also appreciated the mosquito netting at the windows. The large sitting/dining room was very comfortable in the evenings. Large patio areas surround the house and allow you to sit in the shade or sunshine. Please note that linen is not included in this rental although M. Chauvaux is able to organise this. Very easy access to the main motorway network. Fields in front and behind the house. We even watched Bonnelis Eagles, Harriers and vultures from the swimming pool. The only down side was the inside of a couple of cupboards used for wardrobes need airing & painting to freshen them up and some of the pillows could be renewed. We had a lovely holiday and would rent this property again.
Thank you very much for your comments and happy to see that you enjoyed your holidays.
Lovely spacious family friendly holiday home with great pool
The house suited our needs perfectly. It was very clean and spacious.
The pool was fabulous and well maintained. We would look to go back to this place.
Pascal the owner was available to communicate if there were any problems and the caretaker who looked after the house was always happy to help.
We didn't realise that bed linen was not provided in the rental but Pascal saw to this before we arrived for a fee and made sure we had bed linen. Pascal is always happy to help.
The instructions to the property and rental agreement are all in French which proved to be a bit of a challenge but thanks to google translate we were able to work it out. It might be good to have an English copy at hand. I would suggest to Pascal to have fans for the children's rooms as these do not have Air con so it did get hot in there.
The washing machine does have a mind of it's own so be prepared!
As a family we really enjoyed staying here and the kitchen is so well equipped. Meant you didn't have to keep washing up every time someone needed a drink!
The house is located between Narbonne and Carcassonne - you do need a car to get around. The village has suitable amenities and the supermarket is 5 -10 mins in the car. The toll road is great for getting to places - have lots of change on you though for the tolls. We recommend this holiday home, and hope we get a chance to return.
Clean, private, amazing stay!
The garden was completely private so able to play music without any stresses. The house was very well equipped with anything you could possibly need and clean. Close to a village store and can get to a big Carrefour by the bikes that were provided. Very pretty area.
Simply the best!
This is a beautiful property. It is spacious and airy, set in a lovely large garden. The pool is a perfect size and being close to the house means that a quick dip while dinner is cooking is really possible. The real joy of this house is that it is a family home, and the owners obviously prepare and cook food, because it is so well equipped. There are two sets of outdoor furniture so you can choose sunshine or shade. The rooms are comfortably furnished, although in June we didn't eat inside once! The house was spotlessly clean, in fact it was obvious that the last job before we arrived was washing the floors, which were still wet in parts! The owners were very helpful, and responded to all our queries very promptly. The small village has a post office, a small grocery store, a boulangerie a bar and a very good restaurant. It is 10 minutes to a choice of supermarket and within easy reach of stunning towns villages and the beach. Spain is about an hour's drive and the Savador Dali museum in Figueras is a fascinating destination, quite extraordinary. Carcasonne probably is a must-see, but my advice would be to not waste more than half a day there, as it is such a tourist magnet that the experience really is not enjoyable. We would love to visit this area again, and if we do will definitely try to book this house again
