We spent an amazing week at La Maison in mid April of 2014.there were 15 of us 3 families and friends including 8 children ranging in age from 1 to 13.
We were greeted by one of our hosts Colin on the Saturday when we arrived and even though it was gone 11pm local time we could not have asked for a nicer welcome, and this just set the trend for our week in France. La Maison is a spectacular property set over 3 floors and even with a group of our size we still had plenty of room. Outside the property has a lovely pool and grounds as well as an outstanding covered area for eating out as a large group, this included the amazing Hot Tub which saw plenty of use I will add during our week at La Maison.
The property is in the delightful village of Villegailhenc, you have a fantastic patisserie just around the corner, where we could acquire our daily croissants and bread from. Additionally there is a super market which sells fresh items and most of the essentials you might require.
As a base you have Carcassonne within 5 minutes drive which certainly exceeded my expectations, the castle is just spectacular. If you fancy the day at the beach you have the Med just over an hours drive away, we visited Leucate Plage, where you can enjoy white sands and clear blue sea water perfect for young families.
When the time came for us to leave I can speak for us all and say we were sad to be leaving.
We drove from England to France in what would turn out to be a 2000 mile round trip (next time I'm flying in to Carcassonne!!) but all the pain and stress of that Journey is left insignificant when compared to the week we had at La Maison in Villegailhenc.
Thank you again to Colin and Melanie for letting us stay and Experience your wonderful property.
