We are a family based in South Wales, with young children and we use Les Barraux for our own family holidays.

Sian Rees purchased this in 2005

Why Sian Rees chose Carcassonne area

We fell in love with the Carcassonne area a few years ago and decided to buy and renovate an old farm house. We've continued to invest in and improve the property over the last few years and we've tried to make it the ideal place for families and groups to enjoy a really good holiday. We love the sense of space, being immersed in such a fabulous french region and being so close to the mountains.
