Haven of piece and quiet !
We stayed at this great gite in the late summer of 2014. We were looking for peace and quiet, to recharge for the second half of the year. The house offered everything we were hoping for; it was comfortable, with all modern comforts, the beds were very good, the location private and calm, and the pool was perfect to cool down. Cazilhac is a small village, but the large supermarket is at 5 minutes by car. So is the medieval city of Carcassonne, a real impressive fortified city. Surely it is a bit touristy, but not in an unpleasant way. Plenty of good bars/ terraces for an apero, followed by dinner in one of the many good restaurants inside the fortified walls. And if you want to splash out, go to Frank Putallat, Michelin starred restaurant with a surprisingly reasonably priced menu, it is delicious with a capital D! There are plenty of day trips to be made, there is a nice lake nearby, cycling routes ( we loved the bikes in the house) and not to forget the Caracassonne golf club. We played several times, a real pleasure, friendly people, and a good 19th hole. A bit further out is the beach (1 hour drive) or the Pyrenees mountains, for hiking, climbing, if you like that kind of thing.
We stayed close to home, and really recharged the battery. Two weeks felt like four, that’s what you call value for money!
BJ is a perfect host, and always responsive to any telephone request.

My family and I we love the place – we found a home far away from home. The holiday-house is comfortable with all the little "spoiling" things you need for a happy holiday. Everything exceeded our expectations. The pool is amazing, we loved to swim and to relax in the garden under the Olive tree surrounded by Lavender and Roses. In the evening we often used the BBQ, so easy to spoil ourselfs. The house has a perfect location to explore the Languedoc Region with its tourist spots like "La Cite", Carcassonne, Narbonne and don't miss the Cathar castles. We even made a day-trip to Barcelona. Wish we could have stayed longer!
