“Lovely, relaxing stay in well-equipped villa with beautiful views”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed in Rennes View in Montazels from 24 to 31 May 2012. The villa is in a lovely and peaceful part of Languedoc, surrounded by rolling hills and trees. We wanted to get away from it all for a week and our stay at Rennes View certainly allowed us a nice relaxing and sunny break.

The villa is very well equipped with all the kitchen equipment you would expect, including a dishwasher. There are three bedrooms (two doubles and one twin) and one en-suite bathroom, as well as a separate bathroom and separate WC. The open plan lounge and dining area are lovely and bright and spacious. There are lovely views from the upper bedroom windows and also from the garden.

The garden, pool and patio area are really lovely, and ideal for sitting and relaxing whilst reading a book and enjoying the sunshine and views. There's lots of wildlife about - we spotted a red squirrel, toads and a nightingale. The pool is not that large but was ample enough for our needs. I think about eight strokes took me from one end to the other, but it is an ideal way to cool off on a hot day. The pool is heated by sunlight so it will be quite cool unless there's been a fair bit of sun to build the heat up. There is a strong tarpaulin safety cover for the pool, if required.

We loved everything everything about Rennes View. It was very clean, with clean fresh towels and bedding and the caretakers (English) were near at hand should any problems arise. They were very helpful.

We've stayed in the Aude area of Languedoc several times now, but there is so much to see and do that I am sure we will be back. Highlights include the various Cathar castles, Arques, the Grotte de Niaux, the petit train jaune, Gorges de Galamus, Mirepoix, and Carcassonne itself, which is only about an hour away. You will need a car to stay at Rennes View, but that is the only downside.
