About this listing
The first floor appartment is situated in a beautifully renovated Maison de Maitre build in 1870. It is fully equiped and gives you direct access to the village and beautifull surroundings.
This apartment is very spacious (> 85 m2) and offers the luxury you are looking for during a vacation. The master bedroom gives direct access to the bathroom with toilet and shower. On the other side of the master bedroom is the living room with a fully equipped kitchen and a large family area.
Right on the other side of the hallway is the second bedroom which can sleep up to 2 people/ 2 single beds (80x 200).
Guests can enjoy their own part of the garden with a BBQ and large seating area. The garden is accessible via three different hallways. A small pool is also available in this part of the garden. This way guest can enjoy the garden in full privacy.
Interaction with Guests
The full mansion is owned by two persons who each have their own apartment. The front part of the garden is used by them. Guests are more than welcome to join in for a glass of sparkling wine. We enjoy the company of people, but when privacy is wished for there is more than enough space to enjoy the beautiful scenery on your own in the large garden. The apartment itself if exclusively accessible by you.
The neighborhood is maybe one of the most spectacular in France. The village is situated at the foot of the Pyrenees and offers views of the first steep hills leading up to the mountains.
You are an hour from the Mediterranean Sea and only 45 minutes from the medieval city of Carcassonne. Public swimming pools are reached within 5 minutes. The Sunday market in the village is a regional favorite and is worth a visit.
Visiting Andorra or other mountainous villages is easy. You will reach the 'peak of Europe' within 1,5 hours by car.
Public transport is available, but for a full experience of the area we recommend a car.
Free parking is available on the other side of the street or on the public parking place (50 m)
Getting to the apartment from the airport (Carcassonne/Toulouse) is possible by train or bus; we can send you the actual schedule or refer to local websites. If you notice us in advance we can pick you up (gas is charged) and you will have the convenience of an airport or train station transfer.
Only one thing: close the frontdoor at all times. Otherwise no specific rules, just enjoy your stay!
About the Host, Toby
I love our town Esperaza and the surrounding Cathar country. It is always good fun to help guests to find their way around and have a chat in the garden. Interesting to find what kind of life they have, what they find important. Sharing is fun.
For us the most important thing in renting out through airbnb is Hospitality: making our guests feel at home.
