The first jacuzzi is located in the swimming area next to the pool and offers a magnificent view of the vineyards.

The second jacuzzi offers a unique and exceptional view of the ramparts of the Cité de Carcassonne.

Wooded park

The wooded park of more than 2000m², not overlooked, will be the ideal place to appreciate the softness of life of the South of France.

A place of predilection for the children who will be able to play and to release themselves with the swing, the slide and the table-tennis table.

The older ones will find themselves around the barbecue and the bocce ball court for moments of conviviality.

Two terraces

The south-facing terrace offers a superb view of the wooded park, the swimming pool, the vineyard, but also of the Pyrenees, the Montagne Noire and the Bastide of Carcassonne. It will welcome your meals outdoor.

What our tenants say

Beautiful views

“Beautiful views, modern and clean property with all the mod cons and fully equipped kitchen. Fantastic heated pool with 2 jacuzzis with lovely terraces and garden within walking distance to the castle.”


The house itself is perfect

“This place is amazing. The pictures are accurate in that there is plenty of room inside and out. We were a party of 13 (6 children) and at no point did we feel crowded or on top of each other. The pool and hot tubs are brilliant and the rest of the garden big enough for ball games. And it’s 10 minutes at the very most (summer dawdling) to get to the city itself where there is an entrance at the nearest point. I’m not going to wax lyrical about the city itself, it’s beautiful. But the house itself is perfect and had everything that we could need and more (badminton, table tennis, petanque, the pool, 2 seating areas with TVs, tables inside and out, barbeques, laundry facilities…). And Cedric, the owner is an absolute gentleman. He knew that we would have children with us so set a couple of the bedrooms up accordingly with single/ bunk beds and that it was one of the party’s birthday and welcomed us with flowers for her. Would recommend 100%. Apparently Cedric has another house fit for 12 nearby which I’d look into also for a smaller group.”


The only negative was that we had to leave

“We were there for the month of September. The only negative was that we had to leave. We loved the home, the location and the region. We could walk to the old city, the main city and best of all the michelin starred (2) restaurant from Franck Putelat around the corner.
All the rooms had kingsize beds. There are 2 hot tubs, a bbq and an atmosphere in the middle of a vineyard that was the icing on the cake. “


What a fantastic house

“What a fantastic house, in a superb location, we had a wonderful week’s holiday here. It is an easy walk into the citadel and a little further into the main town. The views are incredible on all sides, especially of the citadel of course but the surrounding countryside is also lovely. The house is spacious with a lovely garden, swimming pool and two jacuzzis. I would highly recommend this holiday rental.”


Privileged location!

“Stayed for a week with friends to visit Carcassonne and the region. Enjoyed the large, well equipped house. Great view due to its privileged location at the foot of the city and on the vineyards”
