Overview

About the property

Well equipped large villa with 3 double bedrooms, 1 twin room

The property is a well-equipped family villa ideal for larger groups or families sharing. The well-equipped kitchen provides good cooking facilities, a small table and breakfast bar. There is a further dining table in the spacious lounge which is comfortably furnished with large sofas and there are plenty of board games, videos, DVDs, all available to our guests. UK freeview TV and a stereo system all add to the feeling of a true home.

On the ground floor there is a full bathroom with corner bath, great for the kids, and a separate shower cubicle. The W/C is separate to the bathroom. Also a further bathroom with shower over the bath is located downstairs off the games room. Three double bedrooms and a twin are all well-furnished and make the property ideal for large groups or two families sharing. The large sunny south facing gardens offer a choice of terraces and patios both sunny and shady to suit everyone, with steps running down to the wooden deck and pool terrace, which enjoys sunshine all day long. There are sunbeds and parasols provided in the pool area. Bikes can be hired from nearby Carcassonne for exploring the surrounding countryside.

The large garden offers a vast space for children to safely play in. The games room is a must for the whole family with table football, snooker and air hockey with a separate room for table tennis.

The owners have also provided cot, high chair and pushchair for very young children.

The house is located in a village called Arzens and is situated approximately 5km from Carcassonne. Arzens is typical of a sleepy circular village of the region where the pace of life is very slow but you may find yourself here when there is a local fete and then there will be dancing in the streets literally. Carcassonne offers all the amenities you would expect from a large city including a Saturday market in the main square. Close by is Limoux which is renowned for its sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux, said to pre-date champagne. It has to be tried and where better than at the summer night market held every week in July and August. Market day is every Friday in Limoux and Monday in the medieval and historic square of Mirepoix. Nearby, Carcassonne golf course is a must for all golf enthusiasts, the course is excellent and there are four sets of clubs available at the house to use. Booking advised contact details for the course can be given by email. This property is ideally suited for Carcassonne Music Festival, which takes place i the open-air theatre in La Cite in July and for La Tour de France.

This is a beautiful region of France where vineyards and sunflowers abound. Wine tasting is everywhere including in the village itself. The Pyrenees are visible from many places locally and easily reached. The location is wonderful too for visiting the many Cathar castles and of course the fairytale medieval “La Cité” is a must for young and old alike. The city of Toulouse or "la ville rose" (Pink City)) named after is pink terracotta buildings is approx 83 km away makes a great day out and of course the Mediterranean beaches are little over an hour away and it is only 2 hours to the borders with Spain. Mediterranean beaches are little over an hour away and it is only 2 hours to the borders with Spain.

This part of the Aude has a sunny climate boasting up to 300 days of sunshine each year. Languedoc offers something for everyone. Miles of long, sandy beaches, Cathar castles, fabulous scenery, great cuisine and vineyards in abundance. However, there is much more to see in this delightful region. The surrounding area is one of outstanding natural beauty and nearby places such as Limoux, Mirepoix, Fanjeau, Montolieu to name but a few, are all pretty and interesting. Further afield, Narbonne, Montpellier, Toulouse and Pezenas are all well worth a visit. It is surrounded by mountains. The Pyrenees and Black mountains are within easy reach for winter sports or just a relaxing day out, picnicking in the countryside, taking in the magnificent views. Whether you’re looking for historic buildings, a short city break, vineyards, beaches, a winter ski/snowboarding resort, or just a peaceful mountain village, you’ll find it all in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.

très bel endroit pour une grande famille

  • 3 of 5

nous avons passé les 15 derniers jours de juillet 2017 dans la maison

tout d'abord le positif:

Marjorie et Dave sont parfaits dans leur rôle: accueil, bonne gestion du domaine et surtout en cas de problème ils réagissent tout de suite et avec résultats

merci à eux

la maison est très spacieuse, les chambres et la literie sont très bien

super les 2 terrasses !

le barbecue est parfait

le lave linge vient bien à point

tout le domaine est grand et surtout il fait très calme

pas de vis à vis

la piscine est très géniale

parfait pour vivre à 8 en vacances

merci

ce que vous pouvez améliorer:

la cuisine: sur 8 becs de gaz 1 seul fonctionne correctement mais sans pression: il faut 1h pour cuire des pommes de terre !

la vaisselle est disparate

pas d'appareils electro ménager (dommage manque un percolateur,un mixer,...)sauf le lave vaisselle où 'il faut d'abord comprendre son fonctionnement ensuite c'est OK

+une table de jardin de 1m sur 70 cms qui est trop petite pour 8 personnes

nous n'avons pas pu utiliser la TV: le cable ou satelite ne fonctionnait pas, dommage
