Our perfect getaway!
We were very pleased with the accommodation and felt at home right from the start of the holiday, with the owner Anne appearing on our first evening with fruit and most acceptable bottle of wine! The location necessitated a hire car and the adjoining village of Alzonne was limited in its amenities. This was counteracted by the nearby Intermarche and fabulous adjoining boucherie/charcuterie. The pool was beautifully maintained daily by Frederic. Such a peaceful, tranquil place to stay!
A gem 💎 in a fabulous part of France.
My family and I have just had the most fantastic week at Anne & Frederic's gite. The property was absolutely perfect inside and out.
Anne & Frederic could not have been better hosts. They made us extremely welcome. The bedrooms and bathrooms are like a boutique hotel amd the dovecote at the top is the perfect reading/writing space. The pool is pristine and offers both sunny spots and shade.
Surrounded by fields of vine and sunflowers, there are great paths to walk or run right from the door. The local villages are all very friendly and beautiful - particularly Saissac and Montolieu.
The nearby teleski-nautique is a great place to keep teenagers entertained with wakeboards, paddleboards, and lake swimming.
Carcassonne airport is a 20 minute drive away and the property is not on a flight path so it couldn't be better situated.
In a nutshell - I would recommend this to any of my family or friends.
Total relaxing holiday
The gite was in a rural quiet position. Typical French rustic. We had our dog with us and the property is very secure with a river/stream over the field about 100yards away which was good for the dog in the extreme temperatures that France experienced whilst we were there. Great swimming pool with decking and furniture and shade if wanted. House very clean and comfortable, had everything that you needed. Supermarket and deli/butchers and within 20 minutes walk. Carcassonne a beautiful old city is maybe 20 minutes drive. Anne, Frederic and Callela ( the dog ) were wonderful hosts, very friendly and there if you needed them and not if you didn’t. Would certainly go again, highly recommended.
Perfect 'get away from it all' retreat.
A fabulous property - very clean, very comfortable and well equipped. We were delighted to find that the property was exactly as anticipated from the pictures. We felt relaxed and at home instantly ! The pool was very much appreciated even in October ! In the summer you need go no further, unless you want to. Anne and Frederick are perfect hosts - there when you need them to answer a question or give a recommendation but totally unobtrusive otherwise. The location is ideally placed for exploring the region; both Toulouse and Narbonne are within easy driving distance. The Intermarchè in Alzonne has pretty much all you need and the Charcuterie next door to it is a must. In addition to every type of meat imaginable there are fruit, veg and (home made ?) dishes like ratatouille and cassoulet to take away as well as cheeses and locally made ice cream. Carcassone itself is only a short distance away and the property is easibly and quickly accessible from the airport. We very, very much hope to be able to return in the future as it's such a perfect place to chill out while at the same time being close to everything you might hope for in terms of entertainment or sightseeing. Even Canelle the resident dog is a delight; very tame and playful.
Merci beaucoup ! Vous êtes une famille formidable et espérons vous revoir lors d’un prochain séjour
Perfect property for our July holiday
We stayed for 2 weeks in July at this property and it was perfect for us. The rooms were tastefully decorated, the villa was well equipped, the pool was lovely and the owners (and their friendly dog) were very welcoming and helpful. There was a BBQ and an outdoor seating area which we used a lot.
We flew in to Carcassonne airport and it was only 15 minutes drive to the house, which was ideal. The medieval city of Carcassonne was stunning and the Pyrenees were an easy drive from the property. Montolieu, about 10 minutes drive, was a pretty village with some good restaurants. The owners also gave us some good suggestions for places to eat.
The weather was really hot, in the mid 30's on some days, so we used the pool and sunbeds quite a lot. However, the high temperatures meant that it was hot in the bedrooms at night.
My husband found some pretty running routes from the villa which took him around the surrounding countryside.
Overall, we loved our stay here and would highly recommend this property.
Quiet, tasteful and relaxing environment
We had a fantastic week with 4 adults and a dog. Anne and Frederic made us extremely welcome. The pool was marvelous with perfect poolside furniture. The gîte has been beautifully and tastefully restored. Lots to do and places to visit. We would thoroughly recommend staying here.
At the gates of Carcassonne with its medieval city and the Canal du Midi, a UNESCO heritage site, the Cathar castles, the book village less than 10 minutes, Black Mountain offers its lakes and forests, mountain bike signposted to village of Aragon, to visit the numerous abbeys and the Limousis cave and cabrespine gulf and many other activities that will tell you the owners on site
