Lovely place, good location.

Left on Sep 23, 2016 for a stay in Sep 2016
[5 stars] Property consists of a number of attractive flats catering for between 6 and 2 people. We had 3 of them for year extended group. Lovely place, close to Chalabre village for teenagers to be independent in the evening, Close to the (lake) beach, lane green cycle route and the other attractions of the Cathar region. It is possible to borrow bikes. Benedict is friendly with good English, advising one year itinerary and even phoning to book activities for us The swimming pool was great, and we made good use of the various outdoor sitting areas for BBQs, etc...

Authentic Aude, charming Chalabre. Left on Sep 23, 2016 for a stay in July 2016
This is a very large old farmhouse with three apartments on different levels. Nice spacious rooms, clean and comfortable without being too extravagant. A beautiful setting close to year unspoilt village community. A good sized heated pool and lots of opportunities for walking and cycling. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Great for families.

The apartment was in line with its announcement. / I recommend this rental. / This location is of a good quality-price ratio. / Rental was equipped with internet access. / My deposit was made to me on time.
