Wonderful holiday house
A really lovely house adjacent to the owners country house in a picturesque part of the region - within easy reach of Carcassonne and all the local activities. Sylvie was incredibly helpful and this historic stable block is very comfortable and well appointed eg there are fans in every room. The pool is huge and you have it to yourself. Filou, the elderly Labrador, makes himself at home and gives the place a real family feel. A great base from which to explore the area and a pretty little village only a few mins away to get the morning bread. Supermarket very close by at Bram and airport only 5 mins away. Highly recommended. We were five adults but can sleep 8 comfortably.
Beautiful pool lovely location
The pool was amazing, large and plenty of natural shade most of the day with two parasols provided too. Not for diving but deep enough for us. This really made the property for us.
Montréal is a lovely village with good baker and restaurant or two and a beautiful church. Really close to Carcassonne airport and about 15 mins drive into C town centre and 20 mins to Mirepoix (not to be missed is market early Monday mornings). We found it convenient at Domaine and very secluded and quiet.
Well appointed kitchen and a good gas BBQ meant we ate in a lot with lovely local foods and supermarkets. Casti restaurant in mirepoix main square does a great sharing steak platter of 1kg grilled cote de boeuf. 2 of these fed 6 of us. Really tasty.
Only 2 loos but 4 showers and two baths. Water very hot so enough to go around.
Lots of bedroom furniture and beds were comfy but sofas a little dated and a bit uncomfortable but adequate. Huge kitchen dining table and two outside areas to dine. We ate outside several times and were visited by old Filou the dog who was very friendly. Overall a lovely farmhouse setting and plenty of space.
Sylvie was very helpful and had good English. Any little issues we had in the property were immediately attended to.
The only real gripes are the limited WiFi - it was there but you had to stand by the router to get on and it was weak at times and did t retain the password. We managed though. But don’t bring your laptop and work to Domaine de Toureille. You’re here to enjoy yourself.
We had fans in all bedrooms but with no AC it is stuffy at night.
Overall though we had a lovely stay and would recommend the area and the property.
Lovely property and lovely owner, a great stay.
Beautiful house with lots of character. Sylvie and Jean were both lovely and helpful. We had a peaceful and quiet, comfortable stay. Would highly recommend.
Absolutely beautiful. Tastefully restored house.
This is a beautiful house. It's very private. Set in beautiful grounds. Very handy for Carcassonne airport. Yet peacefully tucked away down a country lane. It's attached to the owners property yet not over looked. The pool is a good size and a gorgeous setting. We were only a party of 4 so gave us loads of space. The ping pong table is very good quality and in a barn for shade. Unfortunately we weren't too lucky with the weather but that's just bad luck. There was lots to do in the area. Jean Claude met us on our arrival. He was very welcoming. Sylvie called into see us later with her very good English and made us very welcome and gave us very good advice for where to go and what to see and best days to go places. It's a stunning area. Carcassonne is a lovely place to visit. Lac de la Cavayère near Carcassonne was pretty and a nice walk around the whole lake (It's a 5km circuit). There are lovely markets in the area and a week wasn't long enough to do the area justice. Thank you Sylvie, lovely host. Filou and Itoun (apologies if spelt wrongly), the dogs were very sweet and wandered in and out. The kids loved them being around, like a home from home for us.
Thank you Faye for your kind words. You have been five star charming guests and I hope you will come back soon !
I would not hesitate to recommend this house to people: it provided everything we needed from well-equipped accommodation through to a good location for outings to various activities, both cultural and active.
A minor downside was the lack of sun on the outside areas in the morning - possibly due to the growth of the trees over the summer - but this just encouraged us to do things in the morning and enjoy the property in the afternoon.
And finally, as others have said, the owner Sylvie was welcoming and helpful, and her dog Filou loved to visit.
We can only agree with what Paul S. said in his review of April 2015. Our party consisted of six adults and one child (aged three) and the size of the house meant that we could spread out and not be under each other's feet! The house itself was really charming and had all the facilities one required even though it's a very old building (but beautifully maintained). The grounds are extensive and well managed as is the large swimming pool a short walk from the house.
The village is only about 20 minutes walk away (uphill going but downhill coming back!) and Filou made numerous appearances both in the gardens and on the journey to the village. The village itself has a good selection of small shops and there is an Intermarche just outside the village with a Carrefour in the town of Bram, about three miles away.
Mustn't forget to mention Sylvie who was really helpful and who seemed to be on the go all the time.
All in all a wonderful stay and would recommend it.
Thank you very much for your kind words.
I hope to see you again.
