We received an extremely warm welcome from the owner when we arrived on the Sunday afternoon. We were made to feel right at home and what a lovely home! Set in the peaceful village of Bouriege, this house has everything you need for a family holiday (even plenty of toys to keep the children entertained). We absolutely loved the outside courtyard and we enjoyed dinner on the roof terrace with lovely views over the surrounding countryside each evening. The property also benefits from a large, well equipped kitchen, with everything you need. We experienced 11 days of sunshine and relaxation and were very sad to leave this beautiful part of the world. There is plenty to do within easy reach of the property - Carcassonne is around a 30 minute drive away and there are plenty of pretty villages to explore in the area. We also enjoyed going for a swim at Puivert lake; a picturesque setting with a Cathar castle as part of the backdrop. The beach at Narbonne was also within easy reach. There is also plenty to do if you like a bit of adventure - white water rafting, rock climbing etc in the Pyrenees/ foothills of the Pyrenees within less than 30 minutes drive.
We can't wait to visit again- thank you very much Mark & Clare for your kind hospitality and for the privilege of staying in your lovely house.More
