The villa is set at the edge of a small village & surrounded by beautiful countryside & views over the unspoilt Mediterranean countryside covered in the natural vegetation with is made up of rosemary, various evergreen oak species, viburnum, pine, juniper & other native species (garrigue). This lovely villa is, modern with character, immaculate & spacious The villa has everything you need and more. It is equipped with all modern appliances including a TV that can access UK channels & wireless internet access. Plenty of CD's, DVD's, books and maps are available for use. The pool & the deck area are in full sunshine for almost the whole day & there are plenty of seating & sunbeds to use. There is a covered barbeque area with table and seating to one side of the garden. The views are stunning & you can walk from the house for miles & miles into the countryside. There are excellent bicycles available in the garage. There’s a small village supermarket & boulangerie which are about a 10 minute walk (and even quicker by bike!) from the villa. There is plenty to do in the area within an easy drivable range. We would recommend the African Safari Park & a visit to the old walled town of Carcassonne dating back to around 1000 AD which has many lovely restaurants. Tautavel is also a lovely village, with an interesting archeological museum set in a valley surrounded by hills. This is the site of the oldest hominid remains ever discovered in Europe dating back to 450,000 years ago. Also there is great white water rafting near Quillan. The Spanish border is not too long a drive away & we visited Barcelona which is three hours away. Sue was most accommodating & also extremely helpful. Dave who looks after the pool & house is very friendly & helpful too. The villa had a lovely home from home feeling about it and we felt very comfortable there during our stay. We would thoroughly recommend a stay in this lovely and very comfortable accommodation set in beautiful Mediterranean countryside.

Respuesta del propietario: Julie, thank you for this review, which sums up the area beautifully - especially the description of the garrigue, which often scents the air, and which we didn't really have room for in our ad. Driving around the area, you do get a real sense of ancient history from the craggy hills, especially when you come across the ruins of the Cathar castles, which are perched so high up that you need to take great care climbing up to them in high winds. In the autumn, there is the additional colouring of the countryside from the reds and golds of the vines.
