The property was great and Andrea was very accommodating and helpful. Convenient access to a number of lovely villages to explore as well as to Carcassonne itself. The bar nearby was an added bonus! Views from the terrace do not disappoint.
We had a 5 day stay at Mountain view and loved it. Andrea gave us some "top tips" before out arrival on times/supermarkets etc which was much appreciated.
The accommodation itself is great - well equipped, clean, homely and has a fantastic view from the patio. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms worked out great for us, and the availability of books was appreciated, especially by me as I'd managed to leave mine on the plane.
There is a bakery less than 2mins walk away for breakfast and essentials.
It was a great location for day trips out to local towns and for sitting on the patio in the evening with a glass of wine.
I'd happily recommend this rental to others.
Everything is catered for in this gem of a holiday home. The accommodation is decorated and furnished to a high standard and all rooms are a good size. The excellent kitchen area has every utensil you would need and even has some cupboard basic food to get you started. The veranda has colourful plants and flowers and overlooks a view of mountains that have to be seen to be believed! It's a 5 minute walk to the historic canal and you can take canal trips in near by Trebes. It is even possible to hire a range of bicycles (located in the property) to explore the canal further. Trebes also has some excellent restaurants and farm produce shops. With historic Carcassonne 20 minutes away and coastal towns such as Narbonne 45 minutes away by car the accommodation is ideally positioned for a perfect holiday. A fantastic holiday home!!
What more could you want from a home away from home.
The pictures are exactly what you will find, 3 bedrooms generous in size; 2 bathrooms; in house library (the bookshelf is jammed 2 rows deep on each shelf with easy reading books & more meaty options); fully equiped kitchen & living area. The tv has every imaginable channel.
The highlight has got to be the terrace & the fabulous view. Enjoy breakfast as the sunrises or dinner as the sunsets. At quieter times of the day sit back & enjoy the birds song cause they are plentiful.
Andrea, the owner, has put a lot of care & love into her home. Finishing touches are high quality & the beds were very comfy. She has considered everything from entertaining guests, heading out for a picnic, wanting to cycle along the Canal or enjoying a family game night & catered for it all. Every time we thought oh I wonder if there is a.... it was there. She's also left guide books, maps and information on a range of local attractions. Thank you Andrea.
There is a wonderful little boulangerie around the corner & a few minutes walk to canal du midi. You are about 10 minutes drive to Trebes with some charming restaurants along the canal & supermarkets or 20 minutes to Carcassone with its medieval city, hypermarkets & even its own beach at the lake.
Parking is around the back of the property accessible via some stairs.
This is an older style French home, it has uneven flatstones as you enter the property so not idea for young children/disabled.
Great base to explore or disconnect. Will definitely book again.
This house is one of the best we have ever been in. Every small detail is thought to make you feel more than confortable. A perfect view over the landscape. Situated in a silent town and with a nice owner always near to help us in any thing.
A perfect place to go with your family and pet either in summer or in winter. If you like to cook, you will find everything in the kitchen, even cooking books.
