Great family holiday
We had a great time here for our family holiday, we could not fault the accomodation as there was everything you would need, even towels for the pool. The owner was very welcoming and at hand if you wanted to ask any questions . The kids loved the swimming pool and great garden space for kicking a ball.The area was great if you just want a lazy day by the pool or do some day trips, lots to see in the surrounding area for all the family. The nearest town was mirepoix that had all the amenities you needed also a great market. Easy drive from carcassone airport. We would most defiantly stay here again.
