Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a very enjoyable stay at your villa. The view will stay with us for sometime I’m sure and it’s perfectly equipped (dishwasher was a godsend)!" R Young" - August 2010

"Had a fantastic time at your beautiful villa in Durban, the scenery spectacular. Kids loved the pool, walked to the village for wine bread and cheese - what more would you want. In the evenings we all walked in the hills overlooking the village. We would love to go back again and will certainly recommend your villa to anybody interested" - The Laverty Family - July 2008

"We had a great holiday and you have a wonderful villa, very relaxing and beautifully equipped. We were very impressed with Dave and Jeanne, they were very professional but friendly and informative too. We had a really great time and will not hesitate to recommend to our friends and family." - F Martin - July 2009

Villa was all we needed, relaxing, quiet, clean and with the most amazing views. Dave who looks after the property for the owners was such an amazing and friendly chap. We had a 5* stay. Thank you.

Wonderful place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed for our holiday; amazing panorama of views to wake up in the morning to and to watch on the terrace as the sun set in the late evening ; along with tranquillity and easy access to village life this is a setting for those who want to step off the busy treadmill of life for a short while to recharge. The villa is very comfortable and well equipped. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing views of castle ruins and surrounding hills. Breath-taking sunrise, sunset, and night sky. Clean, modern, spacious interior. Two weeks of soaking in the sunshine, couple of good books, and a daily croissant. Totally relaxing. Beach is close, stunning Cathar castles and mountain ranges also nearby for the adventurous of heart. Great area for keen cyclists. Will go back again and again.

Lovely week in Durban Corbieres

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this beautiful villa in the hills of Durban Corbieres. You do need a car to be able to get around but that meant we could explore the region and come and go as we pleased. The views from the villa are lovely, especially from the terrace over to the chateau which is lit up at night. The owners Alec and Joanne were very helpful and flexible with our dates. We requested a Sunday arrival rather than a Saturday due to flight availability and they were able to accommodate this which we really appreciated. Dave and Jeanne are on hand in France to meet you at the villa on arrival and made sure we knew where everything was and made us fele very welcome.

The villa itself is modern and light and airy. It had everything we needed during our stay including utensils for the BBQ which we used a few times to a washing machine, ironing board etc (which we didn't need as we were only there a week), towels, internet and Sky tv. The fact that the villa had a pool made all the difference and was one of the key reasons we booked here and the beautiful views too. It was a bit of a heatwave whilst we were there with temperatures up to 38 degrees so we were glad to be able to come back from a day out to relax in and by the pool.

There is lots to do in the area, whether that be visting the local market, going to the beach, visits to Carcassone, Narbonne, Perpignan etc. There was lots of information in the villa about places to visit and leaflets on local attractions which were really useful. We had a lovely time cycling along the Canal du Midi, through Homps, around the Lac du Jeanne - a total of 30k and was a highlight of our trip which would recommend!

We had a great holiday and would recommend both the villa and this region for a holiday for all ages whether you want relaxation or adventure!

Thanks again to Alec and Joanne.
