We (me, husband and 4 year old daughter) stayed for 2 weeks in this beautiful holiday rental in July 2014. We visit France every year and have stayed in many villa rentals over the last 10 years. I can honestly say that this was one of the best. There are 3 options to rent and we stayed in loustalneuf which sleeps up to 6. I did have a look around the other 2 and they looked equally as nice. The accommodation was lovely, well equipped and very clean, fresh towels and sheets after the first week. As the villas are at a slightly higher altitude than we have previously stayed, we were not bothered by midges at all (some flies but not a bother) which is one of my pet hates on holiday. This also meant that the evenings and nights were wonderfully cool, great for little ones sleeping soundly! The grounds and pool area are immaculately kept. The pool was one of the highlights; slightly heated (my daughter never wanted to get out!) with plenty of sun loungers and shaded areas to keep cool in the daytime. The view of the mountains in the distance was also lovely. Our hosts, Julian and Nigel were very welcoming and on hand for any queries or problems (not that we had any problems at all). Although we spent a lot of time by the pool, there are plenty of places nearby to visits. 40 mins to carcassone, 20 mins to mirepoix, 1 hour 15 to the coast (lovely beach at leucate). All in all, a fabulous holiday. We have never returned to any of the villas we have stayed in before as I prefer to try different ones each year but I think this is definitely one we will go back to and I would definitely recommend.
