A delightful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Nick and Glenis

We thoroughly enjoyed a two week vacation here. The Villa was an absolute joy for the six of us- grandparents, parents and two grandchildren. The Villa is extremely well equipped; the BBQ area excellent and inviting; the aircon efficient and most welcome in August; and the pool wonderful.

Susan and Ron managed our stay with considerable expertise and helpful advice - so much so that we have already booked again for next year. Enough said!

Superb Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Les Amandiers was an amazing holiday experience. As two families with 5/6 year old children we rented the gete for our two week summer holiday. The accommodation is to a very high standard with your every need covered for a relaxing two week break. The pool and gardens are secluded and safe for children which ensured a truly relaxing break for all. The Gete surpassed our expectations on all levels and unusually for holiday rentals the beds were incredibly comfortable. Susan and Ron were immediately responsive and helpful when needed. Can not recommend highly enough. We will definitely return in the future.

Well designed and comfortable villa.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely. It is very well equipped for a comfortable hassle free stay. It is equipped and designed to high a standard. There are various eating areas outside, the bbq area being a lovely area to eat. We made full use of the bbq. Eating outside drinking locally produced wine was wonderful. The area is wonderful with a variety of places to visit to suit all tastes, from medieval towns to beaches with a good sprinkling of chateaus thrown in! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend Les Armandiers. Thank you to Sue and Ron who ensured we had a warm welcome and were easily contactable if the need arrived.

Superb villa in a lovely old village

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous, well equipped and well maintained villa; just as in the pictures. We spent a lovely two weeks enjoying the pool and exploring the beautiful and historic area, eg Carcassone and Narbonne. Very peaceful and relaxing and air conditioning was welcome in the heat of summer. Very well managed and highly recommended. We would love to come back.

Beautiful villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Les Amandiers. The villa is beautiful with lovely views over the village. It is very well equipped and the outdoor areas are especially good, with two eating areas (one with a huge American BBQ) and the pool area. The children spent most of their time in the pool, which we all loved.

The villa is located five minutes walk from the village - perfect for the boulangerie in the morning and the bar & pizzeria in the evening! The region is very unspoilt; would particularly recommend a trip to Carcassonne (40 minutes). We hope to return to this villa again!

A calm retreat in a fascinating part of France.

  • 4 of 5

On the edge of a village with bar, shop, bank, butchers, bakers...everything! The house is open and airy with a beautiful pool and air conditioning (the temperature reached high 30s at times). The surrounding area has fascinating small villages and towns and many vinyards with degustations.
