What a wonderful place to stay and get away from it all. I can't recommend this place highly enough for large groups or families. The views from the house across the lake are magical - the house is so aptly named as it's in such a tranquil spot, surrounded by trees and farmland. The weather was stunning so the children...

Our children loved the lake, the play area and the lake. I enjoyed many off road runs in the surrounding beautiful countryside. Great internet access. “Maison...

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the edge of a sleepy hamlet in the Razes region of the Languedoc, amongst the last of the vineyards of the region. Nestled just 30 mins from Carcassonne, and its walled Unesco world heritage site, and 15 mins to the beautiful towns of Mirepoix or Limoux.

Carcassonne has fantastic shopping with markets on a Wednesday and Saturday, La Cite boasting some fabulous restaurants. Toulouse is just 50 mins away, and Montpellier 1.5 hours.

Local markets available almost daily with all the atmosphere and amazing fresh produce. Boulangerie, farm shop, pharmacy and supermarket are all within a 5-10 min drive of the village.

Local restaurants and bars are available in the two closest main villages of Belveze and Montreal, both 5km away. With some fabulous local wine domains offering a mor...
