Chez Magali and La Florette, Floure.

Overview
Rental Home -
8 Bedrooms , 10 Bathrooms , Sleeps 16
Floure, Carcassonne, Aude, Occitanie
Chez Magali and La Florette are two houses on the same grounds, about 20 yards apart. They are normally let separately, but they can be let as a unit for sixteen people with the shared use of the terraces, lawn and large exclusive swimming-pool 11x5ms. .Opening both up together is simply a matter of unlocking one or two doors. La Florette sleeps ten people in two double and three twin bedrooms; Chez Magali six in one double and two twin bedrooms. One double bedroom in each house has en suite shower.

The private swimming-pool is 11x5 ms. with separate paddling pool, and a broad patio protected by child-proof entrance. It is a veritable sun trap. The long south-facing terrace leads on to the external dining area with overhead lighting, and the lawn surrounded by mature shrubs and trees. There is a double swing on the lawn. There is a f...

Interaction with guests
My wife and I keep the middle house to ourselves, but we shall not be there during your stay. We ask that you call our handyman, English-speaking, if you find anything amiss in the property, anything not working... This includes doing a daily check on the colour of water in the pool which can turn quickly in hot weather. In our absence, there is an element of self-help as well as self-catering in staying in these houses. We send you keys in advance. Our paper about the property lists many places to visit within 50 miles. We do not operate a damage deposit preferring to trust our visitors to look after the place. In return, we expect you to dispose of your rubbish, not move heavy furniture around, and treat the houses as your own.

We rented La Florette, the larger part of the house, as well as Chez Magali as we were a large group of 13 although there was room for 16 comfortably over both properties. It was nice to have separate living areas for the two groups....More

About the neighborhood
There is very little in the small village of Floure. However, it does contain the quite magnificent Hotel/Chateau de Floure with its wonderful grounds and splendid interior. You can dine there for that special celebration, or simply take a drink and explore the place. It used to be a Roman legionary base, later a monastery. Beyond Floure, you can drive up the nearest slopes of the Corbieres and enjoy a panoramic view of the entire plain. There is a military museum in Floure and, we are told, a naturist centre. We know nothing of the latter. You can get to the Canal du Midi at Marseillette, a couple of miles away. This is one of the more attractive stretches of the Canal, through open countryside. The lane by Chez Magali takes you down to the river Aude where there is a weir with an electri... more
Getting around
The bus service from Carcassonne to Floure is so limited and rare that we know no one who has used it! A car is therefore essential. The autoroute access is 3 kms away, taking you to Gruissan and Narbonne Plage or to Toulouse to the west. Our paper lists places to visit within 50 miles. Carcassonne railway station lies on the line from Bordeaux to Narbonne.

How to get there
Airport: Carcassonne: 9.9 mi
Railway: Carcassonne: 5.0 mi
Driving by autoroute all the way from Calais will be quite expensive. There is a scenic free autoroute from Clermont Ferrand to near Beziers. To mix autoroute with national roads, we drive via Rouen, Dreux, Chartres, Orleans, Limoges, Brive, Toulouse. We always suggest that visitors try to make the journey part of their holiday if they can. Carcassonne airport (Ryanair) is very convenient and car hire is easy there. We send you directions before your holiday, along with keys to allow you to arrive at your convenience. The train service at Carcassonne links Bordeaux with Narbonne and the main line from Paris to Barcelona.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Nearest Beach: 39.8 mi.
