Long weekend away with the Girls ...
WOW! Where do I start? This property is fantastic! There are 5 bedrooms, all with en-suite. The house is beautifully decorated, lots of quirky light fittings and ornaments. The property itself is HUGE! Very comfortable for 6 of us. There are 3 dining areas, one beside the pool (which we didn't use), there is an outside dining area as part of the house and a very large inside dining table seating 10. The bedrooms are very comfortable and again beautifully decorated as are the en-suites. The property itself was very clean and the kitchen fully equipped. The outside pool area was great, plenty of seating and sunbeds and BBQ's if required.
Jacky, the Caretaker was there to meet us (I think he stays in the Gatehouse at the entrance of the property) and was very helpful. He doesn't speak English, but with our High School French we were able to converse a little. He showed us round the property, showing us round the various rooms and cupboard spaces.
You do need a car to stay here, but the beauty of it is whilst remote you are only 5 minutes to the nearest Supermarket (Geant Casino), 10 minutes into Town Centre and probably about 10 minutes to the Airport. We did the Wine Tour at Chateau De Pannautier which was very good and very reasonable and the lunch there was fantastic! All in all, despite the fact we were only there for a few days the property, the weather and the company all made it a weekend to remember.
Overall very good
We had a wonderful family holiday. The house is really decorated well, plenty of space to sit and relax. Pool is good size and well maintained. Each bedroom is designed beautifully, with en-suites.
Kitchen needs updating and there is some traffic noise. It would also have been more comfortable if there was air con. There was only 2 fans in the house, which wasn’t sufficient.
Jacky is very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this house.
An amazing Villa
This is an amazing Villa to stay at. The location is excellent being away from the town but close enough to all the amenities you need such as shops and restaurants. The owner is exceptional and so helpful. The pool was amazing and was cleaned every other day by the friendly caretaker, Jacky. The villa is enormous with plenty of room for everyone. It is clean and well cared for. Overall we felt very safe. The villa is well appointed and the ensuite is all up to date. Beds were comfy. There is a pool alarm if you are worried about young children which works well. There are 6 sun beds and other seats around the pool as well as parasols. The TV, works well and there is a DVD player. The wifi is a bit slow for watching movies so download first but it works well and is all over the villa as well as beside the pool. The kitchen is excellent with gas hob and electric oven as well as a large fridge freezer. There is a washing machine which works well and an ironing board. In every bedroom there are plenty of usefully positioned power points. There is ample parking too. I cannot recommend this villa enough and will look to return.
Everything we expected - and more!
We used La Pineda as a base for family and friends to stay on the occasion of our son’s wedding in Carcassone, and it was ideal. Starting with the warm welcome and introduction from caretaker Jacky, to the quality of the accommodation and the superb outside space, everyone fully enjoyed the property. Especially the pool as the temperature soared to over 40 degrees! The response from the owner to a request was swift and satisfactory, and reinforced the quality of service at the house. Overall, nothing negative in any respect.
A French Paradise
My family and I have just returned from an idyllic holiday in the beautiful 'Domaine La Pinede'. From the moment we arrived we were made feel at home by the kind and helpful Jacky. He lives at the entrance of the property but is never intrusive. He is a wealth of information on places to visit and it is comforting to know if you have a problem he is more than happy to help. Jacky gave us a tour of the stunning villa with its five ensuite bedrooms, each with their own name and style. For the first holiday ever there was no rows over who got which bedroom as they were all equally special! The living area is spacious and bright with views out to the lovely pool and beautiful surroundings. The kitchen was well equipped and also offered a separate entrance which was perfect for bringing in the groceries! The garden was absolutely breath taking. The pool area offered plenty of seating arrangements including a very comfy couch, an eating area and plenty of sun loungers. We really enjoyed playing table tennis in to the later hours of the day. A short stroll to the entrance of the property and one is greeted with a view of the magnificent 'La Cite" which is a MUST to visit! Last but not least this property offers the most PERFECT location for this area. Carcassonne airport is a mere 10 minutes away and you can find yourself in 'La Cite' in less than 15 minutes. While being so close to these amenities, the villa lies in restful countryside, surrounded by vineyards and meadows ideal for walks/cycles. Our only regret is that our stay was too short. We hope to return to this delightful villa in the very near future and hopefully for a longer visit!
Perfect location - excellent house !
We have booked the premises for a group of 9 people incl. one dog. Booking was no issue, since the owner is very quick with answering any requests.
All bedrooms are located on one level and go off the long corridor shown in the pictures. All is well insulated and heat does not really pose a problem at night. The rooms are all individually decorated, no room is like the other. However, not all rooms have the same size but still all are far big enough for two people. The kitchen is very well equipped, has a four flame gas oven plus a two flame electrical oven.
The pool is very large and is being cleaned by Jacky every day.
The reception by the premisese caretaker Jacky was very nice. He explained all details and gave us a lot of hints regarding short trips and restaurants. Jacky can always be contacted since he is living in a separate house at the entrance to the premises. Whenever we had a question he was available. Jacky is definitely the „heart“ of the house.

Recent swimming pool (2009), of 10x5m, for a depth of 1.10 to 1.60m. The water is treated without chlorine. Alarm system in case of accidental fall, used under the responsibility of parents. Around the heated pool (28 °) a large terrace offers four umbrellas, sun loungers and sunbeds, a table and eight chairs. Lighting at night around the pool. An additional terrace, about thirty meters away from the house, is installed under the pines (table, garden chairs, lighting). It allows in summer, especially the days of great circulation and west wind, to forget the rumor of the highway (inaudible inside the house and invisible). Two bicycles (two adults and one child), swings. Two TVs, one with DVD player.
