As a long standing leaser of holiday homes, I can say this is one of the best we have ever had. Cool and high and spacious. Impeccably clean. Nice modern decor. The vast communal kitchen/living area is almost like a great hall in a castle. Set up on the hill in a quiet leafy spot, (quince trees amongst others), the house overlooks the village, (fun to sit on the terrace and track round the shops those of your party sent off to get the baguettes), and looks over to Rennes Le Chateau. Go there on foot if you are energetic. Concerts regularly held there.
No need for the more crowded coast when you've a gorgeous big pool landscaped into to back garden. I loved its grey lining which gives almost a lake feeling. We swam by day and night.
You can get to Carcassonne by train from a point close by.
We recommend the very nearby restaurant at the Ducs' palace, dining in the courtyard.
Canoeing and kayaking on the river Aude looks fun.
Such an amazing house and location! The views from the front of the house are great and the pool at the back is very chic. The house is spacious and comfortably caters for large groups, and it's all finished to a very high standard. The kitchen is well equipped and all the bathrooms are spotless and beautifully finished. A shop and boulangerie are both walking distance from the house, as well as the lovely Ducs de Joyeuse, a chateau 5 minutes walk away for a drink or dinner. I definitely recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed!!
Perfect home with all mod cons, swimming pool 'to die for' and a real way to recharge our batteries.
A great location for socialising, and a balcony for a glass of red and working out the meaning of life!
I have no complaints and will be booking for the summer!
I wouldn't normally leave reviews, but after a visit to Couiza and stay in this house I felt compelled given how delightful it was.
The views from the balcony are amazing and the space lends itself to socialising while watching the sun set. The interior is beautifully finished and there's ample space for cars, and bikes in the garage. All the bedrooms are spacious and the pool is large enough for a good swim.
We ate at the Chateau down the hill which was lovely and wondered back up to the house which is within walking distance of the local shop and restaurants.
I will definitely be taking a few more friends out next time to explore the valley and Carcassonne more.
A wonderful and relaxing holiday. The house is well finished, furnished and in a gorgeous location. Wonderful view had us sitting on the balcony late into the evening watching the sun go down and the moon appear.
I deal for access to Limoux, the coast and to the Pyrenees. Totally recharged, great food, people and accommodation. I can wait to return when the heated pool is done.
