About The Owner

A friendly family of 3 who fell in love with the languedoc many years ago, we explored the different departments before finally settling on the Aude. Axat grabbed our heart strings on first visiting and we returned many times before finally buying our house in the village.

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Axat

Excellent location, in the heart of a small yet fully equipped tourist village. Having rented numerous holiday properties over the years we had a good idea of what was needed from a holiday rental and the house gave the opportunity to provide it all.

What makes this house unique

Space, comfort, location, outside space.

Great house in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely house in Axat - spacious rooms and in good condition throughout. Location is excellent, just across the road from the outside swimming pool and has spectacular views. This property was perfect for us - 2 adults and 3 children (9, 7 & 3).

Lovely village property in the Aude, well equiped and close to local facilities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We would recommend it highly. The house is spacious and has everything a family on holiday might want. It was clean and well maintained. Nice barbecue and seating area outside and excellent local swimming pool and station for the Little Red Train just across the road. Local shops and a really nice bar with good food and a riverside position just down the road. We went rafting with Pyrene down the Aude - very exciting! - and they were very friendly and helpful. The Oakleys provided excellent customer service. We would definitely go again.

Everything you'd want and away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Claire was awesome. She helped us in every way she could. The gite has everything you need to enjoy southern France and it's tucked away in a nice small town. Full amenities and near to other towns with even more. I recommend you stay here if you are looking to stay in the area.
