About the Owner

Dave & Joyce Hoyle are semi-retired and live in the North West. We bought this property to use as a holiday home for ourselves, our children and grandchildren and to rent to other lovers of France.

Why Carcassonne area? The transport links to UK are excellent from Carcassonne, Toulouse or Perpignan. The climate is more bearable than Spain

Guestbook comments from the owner

The photos don't do it justice, I was expecting a very average villa but was happily surprised. A floor plan on the website so people can see how suitable it is for two families for example.

Henrietta, Middlesex.

The villa was even better than we imagined. Excellent value for money. The children loved their bedrooms and pool. We all had a lovely time in your villa, couldn't have asked for more

Elaine, Barnoldswick.

Had a fantastic holiday - the setup is brilliant. We were very pleased with all the equipment available to us.

Julie, Edinburgh.

We had a most enjoyable time in a wonderful and relaxing location. The house was very comfortable and the facilities were excellent. We would certainly return.

Alan, Liverpool

The villa was wonderful. Much more than we imagined. Exactly what we wanted, kids loved the pool and we felt so relaxed with the privacy. The firework display at the castle was amazing. We will definitely be recommending the villa to friends.

From the Owner

The house was chosen not just for its location and view of the Pyrenees but also for the ease of access via Carcassonne airport - only 15 mins. Since buying the house a 11.5m x 4m pool has been installed and the house has been extended to include four bedrooms, two of which have ensuite facilities. Ideal for two families of four. The house is ideal for those with limited mobility as three of the bedrooms are situated on the ground floor with an en-suite walk in shower.

From the Owner

The Cabardes area is an up and coming wine growing region and borders the Canal du Midi. Walking or cycling through the local vineyards or along the canal is always a pleasure, or for the more energetic a game of badminton or volleyball on a games pitch in the garden. The garden includes figs (June to September), pomegranates (October), loquats (June) and almonds (late summer). guests are free to pick when in season.

  • Notes on accommodation: The pool 11.3m x 4m is the latest saltwater technology system with automatic pH monitoring. So no nasty chemicals and stinging eyes.

For winter nights there is a a plentiful supply of logs for the log burning stove in the lounge. Three bikes are provided for guests. There are also badminton raquets and shuttles. For children there is a selection of pool toys. Outside: The gardens are stocked with many Mediterranean plants and shrubs including pomegranate, grenade and almonds. A kettle BBQ is included on the large patio. The area surrounding the pool is fully tiled and sheltered at one end to form a superb sun trap. The other end gives onto a rockery. A small part of the garden is given over to a full size badminton court with net. Gravelled but unmarked, highly suitable for a knock up but not competition standard. Raquets and shuttle (if not blown away) are provided. Three pushbikes are provided (two gents one ladies). Utility Room: The utility room has a large sink with hot and cold water. There is a modern washing machine, iron, ironing board and airer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Bed linen, duvets, a hand towel, bath towel and (pool towel during the pool season) are provided for each guest.
