We’ve just returned from a two week group holiday at this vacation rental and had a wonderful time, each year we go away as a group, and we are always looking for large holiday homes to stay in, we were drawn to this rental because everyone could stay in one house, rather than some large holiday homes which offer multiple residents. We were welcomed by a Champagne reception, and the children were offered orange juice - a great way to be shown around the property and a lovely surprise.
The house is set in the centre of a village which is great for going to the local bakery, supermarket, butchers, local wine caves and good restaurant and bar.There is a road which runs past the house, but that’s what you would expect having all the conveniences of a village location. Having stayed in more remote properties before we appreciated not having to go in the car to buy bread, croissants every day and enjoyed the short walk to eat and drink at the local hotel.
Mel and Colin were great hosts, we’ve never stayed in a holiday rental where the pool gets cleaned every day, and the whole place was kept to a very high standard. If you are looking for a fantastic place for you and your family and friends, we would highly recommend La Maison D’Amiel as it does feel like home from home, it's 15 mins from Carcassonne, there are superb lakes nearby and some wonderful walks from the village. We really enjoyed it and would go back.
