“Fabulous!”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is spacious and the pool is a decent size. It was perfect for our group of five adults/ young adults. The village is quiet but everybody had a greeting for us. The cafe/bar beside the chateau is the only one in the village but it serves good coffee and beer. The shop beside it is well stocked. Trebes and Carcassone are nearby for sightseeing/restaurants though most nights we were happy to stay put and BBQ
Well stocked library of novels in English. TV reception poor but this was not a priority for us.

Thank you so much for your review after staying at our Villa. We are delighted that you and your family had a great time here and everything was satisfactory for you. Sorry about the TV reception, this is something that is out of our control, from what I gather due to the heat reception was poor for everyone. However, I must add that we do have french to and dvd's for our guests.

“Beautiful, relaxing, and safe swimming pool for the kids”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed in this property with my husband and 4 children. It was absolutely perfect. It is close enough to Carcassonne and other attractions but to be honest we spent the majority of our time by the pool! The pool was beautiful- surrounded by lavender which smelled beautiful and was very relaxing. The high hedges also made it very private. There was a good high safety gate which gave me peace of mind that the kids were safe from falling in the pool when not in use. The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the BBQ in the garden more than once. It had cool tiled floors and beautiful traditional shutters, and a veranda at the side of the house with a shade where we ate most of our meals.

I would thoroughly recommend a trip to the local vineyard- Domaine Villepeyroux- to stock up for your stay. It is a real gem. Henri is very friendly and his reds are seriously good- they even won awards this year.

“So relaxing”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from Malves en minervois and we had a fantastic time the location was perfect remote enough to be relaxing yet close enough to so many attractions, the pool was a welcome after the site seeing. The view from the front bedroom was perfect, we ate our meals outside and socialised outside. Everything you could need.

“A lovely villa in convenient location in small French village”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our family of six enjoyed a relaxing break in this lovely villa with homely extras. The pool was great and well maintained and the attractive house and gardens very private, clean, and comfortable. There was an excellent village shop. Recommend ordering the croissants! Plenty to see and do in the area or simply chill!

“Lovely house, great location”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Just come back from a fantastic week in l’Occitanie. The house is great with a lovely swimming pool and the location was ideal for our family – on the edgy of a charming village, close to Carcassonne and with other pretty towns & villages nearby.
We would recommend le Lac de la Cavayere (both sandy and pebbly beaches plus gentle watersports and grassy picnic areas; a 20 minute drive away) and visits to local vineyards/wineries.

An absolute pleasure to stay in a quintessentially french village. Very peaceful & well equipped. Within easy reach of the enchanting Carcasson. Most happy to recommend.
