A very well equipped 3*** rated gite with own patio, BBQ and terrrace. Great location for visiting the Cathar chateaux, Mediteranean, Spain, Carcassonne and surrounding countryside. There are no shortages of things to do and places to visit. Markets held daily in all the different villages / towns. Golf course at Carcasssonne and several others in the region.

Surrounded by vines at the edge of a village with a fabulous Boulangerie, Bar and a restaurant yet close to other amenities. Great for walking, relaxing and recharging those batteries,
