Situated between Carcassonne and Toulouse in the heart of the Cathar village of Les Casses you will find Villa Confey the perfect place to relax and explore this beautiful region of France. A spacious well appointed house with a fully equipped kitchen and all the necessary modern appliances. However, if you decide not to cook at home; then there are plenty of good, reasonably priced restaurants in the area to explore, two nearby with a Michelin star are certainly worth a visit. The private south facing garden is planted with aromatic herbs such as rosemary, sage, thyme, bay, mint and lavender; where you can relax on the sunbeds in front of the pool soaking up the sun. Then when the heat becomes too much; you can take a cool dip in the pool. A barbecue is available and will be invaluable for entertaining and al-fresco dining. There are plenty of local markets in the nearby towns of Castelnaudary, Villefranche de Lauragais and Revel; of which Revel is worth a visit on Saturday mornings.

Hmmmmm interesting place
Once the wifi was sorted, which we specifically booked a property with, we could enjoy our holiday. Sadly the place is looking somewhat tired with lights not working in the bathroom, gates that you have to push so hard to shut, an umbrella that is stuffed into a hole and leans over the whole time,
Trees surround the pool so after 3pm it’s completely shaded and full of leaves and the temperature in it drops.
Clean bed linen and towels would be appreciated with a two week stay.
Spacious, well equipped and clean; good location
Three good sized bedrooms; good pool for exclusive use. Historic village excellent for touring. We saw a red squirrel in the garden!
Spacious, very well kept property.
Spacious and clean with all the equipment you need. Lovely swimming pool & terrace area to sit out with enough loungers for all. Plenty of games & we used the local pétanque area where welcoming locals played too. Great place to stay for day trips out. Would stay again.

In the heart of the Lauragais, with its beautiful countryside and cathar castles. Villa Confey is 35 minutes by car from both Carcassonne and Toulouse. Toulouse, the 'Ville Rose', has excellent shopping facilities, architecture, history and art. The medieval cite of Carcassonne, the inspiration for the book Labyrinth with its two outer walls and 52 towers is definitely worth a visit.
Near Revel is the Lac de St Ferreol which is ideal for children with its sandy beach, pine woods, bars and restaurants. You can also hire pedeloes and small boats. The Lac St Ferréol is one of several water sources for the Canal du Midi and in the town of Castelnaudary it is possible to take boats trips along the canal.
