Perks for the Parents

This 3-bedroom house, part of a boutique family estate 15 minutes west of Carcassonne, features a shared pool, views of the Pyrenees and plenty of space to roam safely and play. The house can also be rented together with Maison Citron and can inter-connect on the ground floor and terrace if required, to create a very large 6-bedroom house. The dining area has a large zinc top table which seats 6, and the comfortable lounge area has a wood-burning stove, TV and DVD player. The south-facing bedrooms have french windows (with security rail) that open to reveal views of the uninterrupted countryside and gardens. Sun loungers and parasols surround the swimming pool. Attractions in the surrounding area are abundant, but quiet days can be spent around the pool, having simple picnics in the grounds, playing boules or snoozing on the shaded sun terrace. Extras can be pre-arranged including bike hire, wine tasting, massage and beauty in the treatment room and authentic French catering with meals delivered to your door.

Why Kids Love it

The house and grounds offer as much for children as it does their parents. There is a large swimming pool with inflatable toys, and within the safe swimming pool enclosure is a cute shady wooden cabin with toys where children can play in the heat of the day. There is also is a children’s play area with slide and swings, wooden pirate ship, log cabin, a 14-foot trampoline as well a boules area. The estate also features an underground vaulted games room, with a year-round cool ambient temperature, where families can enjoy table football, table tennis and other games. The communal lawned area has badminton and football and the shared 1000 sqft shady barn enclosed on 3 sides is equipped with ride-ons, toys and a beautiful chill out area. Complimentary cribs, bed guards, stair gates, high chairs, strollers, booster seats, changing mats, toys, books and much more can be provided on request. Trusted babysitting can be arranged and a supervised kids club (small charge) runs twice weekly during July and August.

Carcassonne, Southwest France

Castles, cobblestones and canals

This fairytale town in southern France is like a medieval pageant come to life, all drawbridges, cobblestones and Disney-esque turrets. Spaghetti-thin streets wind past basilicas covered in gargoyles and ramparts rolling out panoramic views. Watch falconry shows and knights on horseback or splash about at Carcassonne Plage, just outside the city.
