Villa in Pieusse, Limoux, Aude, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Modern Villa With Great Facilities And Private Pool
Villa Olivier has four bedrooms, all tastefully decorated and spacious, and offers relaxing accommodation and modern facilities. Although situated in a quiet and secluded location, a large supermarket and other stores are less than 5 minutes drive away.
Both floors of the villa are directly accessible at ground level as the driveway sweeps down and around the building. On the ground floor, there are three double bedrooms (one with king-sized bed, one with double bed, one with two single beds) and a large bathroom with bath and large separate shower enclosure. There is a large L-shaped living / dining room and modern kitchen, fully equipped with fridge-freezer, electric oven, electric hob, dishwasher and microwave. A dining table sits 8 people. The comfortable lounge offers TV, DVD, and wireless internet access. There are patio doors onto the upper terrace, beneath grapevines, ideal for breakfast and morning coffee, and with steps down to the pool area.
On the lower ground floor, there is a large double bedroom with super king sized bed and ensuite bathroom with bath and separate shower enclosure, and there is a separate WC. The lower ground floor has a summer kitchen and dining area with sink, fridge and microwave, etc, ideal for preparing pool-side drinks and snacks. There is a large open area with TV and DVD. Patio doors open to the lower terrace with built-in barbecue. There are two steps to the large pool-side secluded terrace.
The villa has a private 9m x 4.5m swimming pool and spacious pool area, with sun-loungers for all guests, plus there is a pool-side dining area under a verandah with ample tables and chairs. The pool has a single depth of approximately 1.6m. There are plenty of lilos and other inflatables for the use of guests. For young children, there is also available inflatable pool of 3m diameter and approximately 60cm depth that may be set up on the pool terrace - this will be done in advance of arrival for guests who request it.
The house is well equipped with games, DVDs, and a table football table for the enjoyment of guests.
Villa Olivier is about an hour's drive from both skiing and beaches. Famous Carcassonne, with the much visited medieval La Cite (and its airport) is only 20km away. The historic towns, sleepy villages and the wealth of Cathar history make this area of the Aude one of the most picturesque and fascinating in the South of France.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"A charming and spacious French house. We loved our stay in this comfortable, clean and well equipped house, which feels light, airy and tranquil. Pretty seating areas and a good size pool. The house is well situated on the edge of Pieusse – a lovely village, nestled in the rolling vineyard lined countryside, convenient for Carcassonne, the Pyrenees and the charms of the region. An enjoyable week." Elizabeth & Roger
"We stayed at the house in July 2014. A fabulous house that has the feeling of home from home. A fully equipped kitchen and BBQ outside allows self catering if you wish. The pool is perfect and allows guests the opportunity to relax in the garden and cool off in the pool . Although the house is very private it is conveniently placed to use as a base to explore the surrounding area. You are perfectly positioned to visit the coast and the beautiful medieval city of Carcassonne. We were fortunate to be there for Bastille day and saw the most amazing firework display. We also visited on of the many the vineyards in the area and had a tour which was so interesting, would recommend this too. The house is suitable for all ages, we visited with a teenager who was happy reading, relaxing and swimming in the pool.
We would definitely recommend staying here and are already planning a return visit soon. " Peter and Debbie
“A small corner of heaven tucked away in the hills and vineyards of Languedoc. We spent a wonderful, relaxing week here and enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommended. ” Mark McGillian
"My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in this gorgeous villa, we where impressed by the modern finishes that made the stay very comfortable. On days we lay by the pool we enjoyed the private setting and easy access to the house from the second kitchen and loved the large space around the pool area where we could see ourselves return with our friends enjoying a barbecue. On days we went exploring we found the house to be convenient to some of the larger cities but also enjoyed pottering around Limoux with the locals. The house is surrounded by vineyards so there is no shortage of wine-tastings and we loved being able to meet the producers and talk about their product if only in very poor french on our part. We had an amazing time during our week and can see ourselves going back in a heartbeat" Victoria Rogers

Well located and equipped villa with room to spare
The villa was well located for exploring the area, well equipped and spotless; the equipment all worked and the pool was looked after thoroughly. It was most relaxing, and with lots of space; the bedroom downstairs was nice and cool for the hottest nights. Whilst there is not much in the village itself, Limoux is a few minutes away and easy to get into and park, and there is a large supermarket two minutes away. This part of France is relaxing and relaxed but there is plenty to see and do as well.
Lovely, well equipped villa - highly recommended
What an absolutely fabulous villa. We stayed for two weeks at the beginning of August.
The villa is as described, upstairs the open plan living room/dining room is a great size, with a well equipped kitchen off the dining area. The upstairs bedrooms are roomy and all have proper spaces to hang your clothes (which isn't always the case in France). The upstairs bathroom was lovely and the shower was powerful (again not always the case).
Downstairs is the master bedroom which has a very comfortable, super king sized bed. The en suite has an amazing shower which has an integrated massage panel.
Also on the downstairs level is an extra kitchen, a toilet and a room with the pool toys and table football, plus badminton racquets and boules etc.
Outside is a wonderful pool, which our children loved as it was deep enough to dive in. There were pine trees around the pool, which meant we had to fish out the needles a couple of times a day to keep the pool surface clean. There were good quality sun beds, with nice thick cushions, these were easy to move around the pool area to keep racing the sun. There were also several sun umbrellas, although we didn't use them. The BBQ was well used by us and all the equipment was provided.
The only negative comment about the outside area is that some of it is not enclosed by fencing, along one side it has bamboo covering quite a steep bank. Anyone with young children would need to be mindful of that.
Clare, who was our contact throughout the rental process was fantastic. She was quick to reply to our enquiry and sent the documents through quickly. She met us at the villa to show us around and came around several times during our stay to clean the pool and change the bedding.
The village does not have a bakery, although Clare told us that a van comes we did not see it.
The neighbouring houses are located in such a way that they can not see into the garden, although you can look over the wall into their garden.
A great holiday villa that I would highly recommend.
