About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

This sun-filled, very old and newly renovated house is situated in the village of Quillan is nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains and overlooks the Aude river as well as nearby mountaintops.

The house set on 3 floors has 2 large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom, each with windows - the first two rooms each have a double-bed, the smaller room with a single bed. There is one newly finished full bathroom and a second finished 'beach bathroom' (a relic of the wine maker who was the previous owner as is the 'atelier' in the back of the ground floor level). The house also boasts a large kitchen with a long 'harvest' table and restaurant-style gas stove. The living/sitting room offers views of the river and mountains as well as Wifi, cable television, stereo and dvd player.

There are separate electrical heaters in main rooms, bathroom and bedrooms. All amenities are included with the rental of this property including bed linens, towels, dishes, cookware, utensils, hair dryer, coffee maker, toaster, washer and dryer. A large storage room on the main floor is perfect for skis, beach stuff, suitcases, kayaks, bicycles, etc...

The village of Quillan is located in the 'Cathar' region of France and is home to one of the castles from that era. It is conveniently situated approximately 1.5 hours by car from the Toulouse airport and 45 minutes from Carcasonne. Narbonne beach is about 45 minutes away, Andorra and Barcelona about 2 hours each.

Many visitors to the Quillan area come to see the local castles, remaining from the time of the Knights Templar. Day trips to many of these are within a few minutes-drive in multiple directions. Visitors are also fond of local wineries, restaurants, outdoor activities like hiking, rafting, cycling, climbing and skiing.

An outdoor farmer's market is held every Wednesday and Saturday mornings. During the months of July and August, the village square comes to life with live music and a festive atmosphere in the evenings.

A substantial discount is available to anyone looking for longer-term accommodation (2 months or more).

The house is owned by a couple who are from Montreal, Canada and is used a a seasonal home and rental by this family.
