The further triple is down stairs and is great as a family room, with a double bed and children's bed plus its own bathroom with shower over bath. There is a further single bed on the mezzanine above the living room. A child cot can be provided plus highchair & stair gates.
The fully fenced garden is accessed both from stairs from the ground floor and a bridge from the first floor. It has a decked terrace with tables and chairs, a shingle area with sun loungers and a wild flower meadow. Theres both sunny patches and natural shade afforded by the trees in the garden.

This is a rustic property and although renovated the house is very old, there’s a mezzanine above the living room and there's stairs to the house & garden.

I stayed here a couple of weeks a go and absolutely loved it. The house is beautiful - especially the feature bath in the main bedroom! There was a lovely outside terrace for lunch/evening meals and a big family kitchen for breakfasts.
The village had everything I needed. There was a local shop, bakery and a couple of restaurants. I hired a car and was able to explore the local area, including the City of Carcassonne, the local swimming lakes and canal. Would stay again.
“A wonderful house in a beautiful and idyllic location.”

We loved everything about this house and it's location. It oozes character and charm and is delightfully stylish. A last minute booking, it ticked all the proverbial boxs regarding what you would want from a rural French holiday retreat. The great thing about its location is its proximity to so many great places to visit. Barcelona, the beaches on the Med etc all just a short drive away. Brilliant. There is more than good chance we will be returning!

Such a lovely home to stay in. Loved the space of the house and the beautiful sunny garden (not to mention the feature bath!). So much to see locally and felt really peaceful. Would definitely visit again!
