Maison du Cour is a well equipped and well appointed gite. There is plenty of crockery, cultlery, a dish washer, washing machine and dryer. We found a welcoming bottle of local wine and some basic food needs which was a nice surprise. The living area is spacious with some character features. The rear courtyard is shaded with a seating area and outdoor dining furniture. The front courtyard, which has sun in the afternoon,has a pool and loungers. The bedding was suitable for summer temperatures and the beds comfortable.
The village was quiet but beware the church bells ring every hour and half hour. It was a problem for one of our group. The nearest town is only about five minutes away which is convenient for shopping and restaurants. There is a bar in the village which appeared to be run by an Englishman.
The village is well situated to visit many interesting sites, villages and vineyards.
The property is located in a cul de sac which is easy to get to by car to drop of stuff but not so easy to get out of unless you are great at reversing in restricted spaces.
A couple of things that could have been better were:
Downstairs shower had mold on the walls.
The bottom of the pool could have been cleaner and the pool guys turned up one morning unexpected before we were dressed and would have let themselves into the gite to access equipment had we not noticed in time. This could have caused some embarrassment !
There was no hanging space in the third bedroom.
All in all we had a good time and we would recommend it.
Excellent property situated in a small village. Central for visiting numerous local attractions/villages. Spacious with the all important pool for those HOT days. Highly recommended.
Living like a God in France...
In the morning : breakfast in the sun,
In the afternoon : swimming in the pool in the sun,
In the evening : eating and bbq in the shadow.....
rural france at its best. a beautiful house ( a converted part of the old winery ) with courtyards front and back and boasting a swimming pool.the village of cesseras is the perfect base for exploring this historic region of france, the obvious attraction is carcassone, a world heritage site, but do visit the magnificent gorge at minerve and the castle at foix. too many historic places to see this time so need to go back to this lovely house to continue exploring this beautiful region of france.
