“Lovely villa with amazing views”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The 5 of us (2 adults, 3 children) stayed at Rennes View villa for a week in July 2015. The villa is a lovely size and well equipped with everything you need and it was clean and tidy.It is situated up a hill with amazing views of the mountains. The area is private and peaceful which is what we wanted. We hired a car for the week which I think is a must. We paid a visit to Rennes Le Chateau which is recommended.
We had some great weather which was definitely a bonus so the swimming pool came in handy to cool off. We spent some time in the quaint village of Esperaza and the supermarket is only a short drive away.
We visited the Sunday market in Esperaza which was an eye opener, with all different types of people and products there.
Overall we had a great family holiday.

“Didn't want to return home”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Had a two week stay here in September 2013, one week as a couple and the other with our daughter and three of her friends. The villa is located on a hill in a very peaceful and private location, with pleasant views, including the famous Rennes Le Chateau high on the hill opposite. The property itself is very well stocked and spaciously laid out, with six of us staying there for one of the weeks there was no feeling of being cramped nor of being on top of each other.

Rennes View is a good base for seeing much of the local area, including Rennes Le Chateau, the historic Carcassonne, Andorra and the Med coast close to the Spanish border. There are some spectacular gorges close by and of course it is a good area to see and enjoy the local life, including the vineyards and local markets. (The Sunday market in Esperaza was well worth the visit, including the 'flea market' over the bridge!).

The only negatives are that the garden furniture was starting to look a bit tired, and In September we found that one or two of the local restaurants had closed for the winter.

The ultimate test of a holiday is on the last day when you decide whether if you could, you would stay there forever. We decided that yes, we could.

“Excellant family holiday and facilities”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had an extremely enjoyable family holiday (two adults and three children) at Rennes View in the village of Montazel between Couiza and Esperaza, with lovely views across the valley to Rennes Chateau and village (visiting a must).

The villa was bright and had everything we needed with excellent facilities, in a peaceful setting. Days spent by the pool were thoroughly enjoyed as a family with evening barbeques. We had lovely weather for the duration of our week long stay.

Day’s out include, Cite de Carcassonne, a must and well worth visiting both during the day and night time with plenty of places to enjoy an evening meal The climb to Puilaurens cathar castle is well worth it for the breath taking views and castle. White water rafting and hydrosurfing with pyrene rafting at Axat nearby was enjoyed by all the family and highly recommended. A drive up into the mountains towards Andorra with amazing scenery in recommended. The Sunday morning market in Esperaza is a must. A day out to St Cyprien beach and nearby harbour for an evening meal is well worth the trip. Information for days out was available at the property and was a great help.
