The town of Quillan is a leisurely stroll ( 10 mins) to bars, restaurants and shops and the nearby beautiful River Aude. Within 5 mins from the house is the local boulangerie and bouchiere.
There is a gas BBQ/ washing machine, tumble and dishwasher available in the house as well as the possibility of use of a selection of children and adult bikes (by prior arrangement)
Quillan has its own decent size supermarket,a swimming pool, a train that runs for 1 euro direct from Carcassonne if you fly in! We are about an hour from Carcassonne airport. 45 minutes from the ski resorts and about half an hour from a beautiful sandy swimming lake so this really is a great location for all!
Quillan is also well known for cycling, walking and more high adventure activities such as white water rafting, kayaking and rock climbing.
A car is not essential but helpful for exploring the area to its fullest.
After many years of hiring villas we decided to buy our own and enjoy it with the family, our three kids, their friends and our dog Mitch!
Both working, we lead very busy lives so our time in Quillan is always treasured and relaxed - whether it be in the sun trap of a garden lazing by the pool, exploring the local area and cuisine or attempting to ski and snowboard! - we hope you enjoy your stay and love it too!
Matt & Carole purchased this villa in 2015
There is lots of space so you can enjoy it as a couple, as a large family or group. The layout downstairs mean you can accommodate two families with children with a certain amount of privacy and separate space. Our games room offers family entertainment and options whatever the weather or time of year.
The area in around Quillan is beautiful and panoramic and must be explored.
A home from home feel - this is modern, recently refurbished villa, well equipped and resourced that everyone can enjoy.
We enjoyed ourselves immensely, from the views to the jet skiing to the drives through the Pyrenees!
Thanks for letting us stay.
Great villa, great location, great town. Villa as beautiful as advertised, stunning views, well equipped and spacious. To wake up each morning to look at the view, who could want for more. Our party of 9 with varying ages from 57 to 19 had a great time in the pool and tournaments in the games room, with plenty of room to have their own space. The Boulangerie and Boucherie are just round the corner. We stayed at end of July and beginning of August which was Quillan's festival time with live bands and parades, lovely restaurants and bars. We did manage to venture out to Carcassonne which was amazing. We also highly recommend La Forge where we had great fun kayaking. Lovely wineries all around, we visited one in Limoux which was very interesting and also went to lake Montbel. Wonderful area, with beautiful fields of sunflowers and tiny villages have left us wanting more and can't wait to come back.
We have just got back from an amazing holiday at the Hornsby’s house in Quillan. A well-equipped house with space for 10-12 people, it was perfect for our family of four (two adults; a ten and eight year olds). The weather in late July was perfect (normally around 30 degrees and sunny; a few slightly cooler days but even when clouds came they often moved on quickly in the microclimate of Quillan, which resides in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Much of the holiday was spent sunbathing and reading on the balcony and playing in the pool below. Most breakfasts were eaten on the balcony overlooking the mountains. Beautiful.
The sitting room, kitchen and most of the beds are upstairs, with a games room, second bathroom and another bed downstairs, leading out to the pool and garden. We didn’t need the pool to be heated, which worked very well for us. It’s smallish but great for us. Perhaps a little small if you are looking to do lengths – we would guess around 7m on the longest edge, but we found it worked well for playing around in and swimming together.
The games room has a good range of things to do (dart board, table tennis/decent size snooker combo and TV). The controllers for the Wii weren’t in much of a serviceable condition when we arrived, but it was fine to play for one person on some games and a very minor issue in a very well apportioned games room. There was some fun inflatables for the pool and other bits and bobs which added to the fun (snorkels, football goal, etc.).
The house is a two minute walk from the leading boulangerie in Quillan, which has a fab range of fantastic breads and patisseries and we went to almost every morning. It’s a ten minute walk into Quillan itself, a journey we made quite often for dinner at one of a number of wonderful restaurants (la galleria, the café by the river in the place de la republic and the creperie just opposite the police station being our three favourites). We did venture to the beach one day (about a 90 min drive through the beautiful Pyrenees) which was lovely, but we mostly liked to stay around the house.
Thé owner; Hornbys gave us all the information we needed. Lovely village; Hiking, horseriding,visiting catharcastles...
Tasteful villa with lots of space. Well equipped. Nice enclosed secure garden for kids. Lots to do in villa and area. Great water sports. Nice pool - great for family. Gorgeous patisserie on corner - must have put half a stone on!
Nous avons loué cette maison pour le grand week-end de la Saint sylvestre, nous étions 7 adultes et 4 enfants. La salle de jeu a été très appréciée (avec son billard, les fléchettes, la table de ping pong,...). Le volume et la décoration des pièces est très agréable. Nous avons trouvé un gite très propre et assez bien équipé. Aux beaux jours la piscine doit être très agréable avec la vue dégagée sur les montagnes.
