Rental Home
On the edge of one of 'most beautiful villages in France', overlooking the vineyards and river, next to the Abbaye Chateau de Camon, our home combines the charm of a traditional stone house with a contemporary, spacious home, stylishly furnished and equipped to provide a perfect base for a holiday in this stunning area. There is a lovely feeling of space and light the moment you enter the house, with plenty of room for everyone to relax in and areas dedicated to cosy or more formal eating. We really want you to feel at home whilst you are here and grow to love this place like we do, so we have tried to provide a balance between relaxing comfort and a sense of luxury. There is the added bonus of underfloor heating throughout the house. You will be staying in a truly wonderful spot.

We really want you to feel at home whilst you are here and grow to love this place like we do, so we have tried to provide a balance between relaxing comfort and a sense of luxury. There is the added bonus of underfloor heating throughout the house. You will be staying in a truly wonderful spot. Whether you want to spend your time winding down or fill your days exploring the huge range of fascinating places nearby, you are surrounded by amazing landscapes in all directions. Although Camon is a tranquil village you are within walking distance of both an excellent restaurant at the Abbaye-Chateau and a delightful little cafe offering home-made local produce in the summer season. The sense of peace here offers a real opportunity to escape if you want to, with a gentle river at the end of our lane, with super views from inside the house or you can go through the french doors on to the pretty balcony where you can enjoy a glass of local wine. Steps here lead you down to the garden area where you can eat, read or sunbathe. You have two lakes nearby where you can easily spend days swimming, walking, eating or enjoying the water-sports on offer. This area is surrounded by footpaths and cycle paths on or off-road which lead you through a varied landscape; views of the snow-capped Pyrenees, soft, rolling hills, pretty villages, sunflower fields and shaded woods or dramatic gorges, mountain and forest walks a little further afield. You can also hire bikes nearby. In contrast, for those wanting a more active holiday, there are so many interesting places to visit like the famous Cite de Carcassonne with the Canal du Midi nearby. Discover the fascinating history of the spectacular Cathare Castles of Montsegur, Puivert, Roquefixade or Foix, to name but a few. Explore the Pre-historic paintings in the caves at Niaux or the beautiful local medieval town of Mirepoix. There are lively, bustling markets held nearby all year round and at night-time during July and August. If you enjoy good wine, we are surrounded by very respected wine-producing vineyards with an abundance of caves where you can go tasting the local produce. There are many water activities offered not far away for the more courageous, like white-water-rafting or canyoning or Adventure Parks where you can swing through the trees.....and for those who love ski-ing, our nearest ski-resort with 21 runs is just 50 minutes away for those who want to take a winter break. On a practical note...... You have many options with your sleeping arrangements. The Super-king beds can be converted in to 2 singles and vice versa. There is also a very comfortable sofa bed in the lounge, so the house can sleep 8 people if necessary. We also have a cot for a baby. Bedding and towels are supplied free of charge. We do not charge for cleaning, but would really appreciate you leaving the house as clean and tidy as you can. Thank you. You should find everything you need here to eat in or picnic out in style. You have your own washing machine, drying-line and iron etc. There is a variety of books, maps and board-games to borrow. Beach towels are available and a range of children's games, books and activities to use if you wish. You may borrow dvds and cds to play on the smart television, which is also tuned in to French TV channels. There is Wifi available. You have plenty of room for parking. There are several sun-chairs, a barbecue, picnic tables and parasols for you to use. We will be here to welcome you and settle you in when you arrive and are very happy to be available with help or advice at the end of a phone whenever you need it. But during your stay we will leave you alone to enjoy your holiday in peace unless you say otherwise!More

How to get there
There is no doubt that you will be able to appreciate the area best if you have a car. However, if you are keen cyclists it would be possible to get by on bikes, once you have got to the house. Bikes can be hired nearby. You are 20 miles from the nearest train Station, just less than an hour by car to Carcassonne airport (beautiful drive), about 1h 20 mins to Toulouse airport , (the last part is ring road, so not quite as pretty) and 1h 45 mins to Perpignan airport (spectacular journey)
