Rivel, Aude, Occitanie
Recently refurbished, a delightful one bedroomed gite set within seven acres of lawns and woodland, Quatre Bougies is the perfect rural retreat, with guest appearances from eagles, buzzards, kites and other wildlife.. In the absence of light pollution, the night sky is a stargazer's paradise. The gite snuggles in the countryside just outside the small hamlet of Rivel near Puivert lake and beach & Chalabre, about 45 minutes from Carcassonne airport.

This comfortable gite has its own private patio, leading from the kitchen area - ideal for breakfast in the sun, a lazy lunch under the parasol, evening drinks and BBQs . Quatre Bougies also has access to the owners' swimming pool ( pool towels provided), lawns and shaded, wooded areas.
With a double bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the living area, this gite can sleep 3 peop...

About the neighbourhood
Rivel is well placed for a plethora of activities, indeed this sleepy hamlet comes alive in the summer months when they have their own fetes and festivals. In fact, all the surrounding villages have their own fetes, festivals and weekly night-time markets.
The local village of Puivert offers a splendid swimming lake, with its myriad of café bars and amenities. It even boasts its own brewery and bar!
Just 40 minutes from Carcassonne means easy access to and from the airport or a day in the Cite.
Being so near the rivers Aude and Ariege, this area has access to all river sports including fishing kayaking, canoing and white water rafting, whereas the lake at Montbel lends itself to the more sedate watersports of sailing, wind surfing and pedaloes. If you don't want to get wet, the a...
