An absolute gem of a site, and only a 15 - 20 minute drive to Carcassonne.
The site is easy to find, at the edge of a pretty village which on a clear Spring day commands wonderful views of the distant snow-covered Pyrennes.
Reception was closed when we arrived, but it was simple to make contact & we were told to choose a pitch - most of which were service pitches. They were all of a good size, and very private because of the hedging. The only slight drawback is that there is a one-way system & a couple of VERY tight turns. Our van is 7. 4m long & just managed to inch our way round, but it would be no problem for smaller units.
The swimming pool looked as though it would be lovely, but obviously not open this early in the season, nor were the snack facilities.
The sanitaires were absolutely spotless, very smart & it was a pleasure to shower or wash-up to the gentle music which was playing in the background. My only criticism is that perhaps a couple more loos would be an idea.
The campsite was very peaceful, the only sounds at night being the owls hooting in the trees.
It was a short walk into the village, and obviously there was plenty to do in the area.
On our arrival we were given a very useful English welcome pack which contained details about the campsite & area, along with brochures about the local sites & Cathar castles.
We loved Carcassonne & enjoyed a couple of delicious lunches in one of the vibrant squares.
The owners were very helpful, excellent English was spoken, and free wifi was available across the site.
Would we visit again. A definite YES.
