There are direct flights twice daily from Stanstead to Carcassonne Airport (8 minutes drive to villa from Airport). With the flight only taking 1 1/2 hours you could be sitting round the pool enjoying a glass of something cool, only a couple of hours from leaving the UK! .. or why not try out TGV which leaves Waterloo via Paris direct to Carcassonne.
Some Villas say they are in Carcassonne, but they are in a village near Carcassonne, we are literally 5 minutes’ drive/or bus ride to the Cite! Castle, where there are 100’s of shops, cafés and restaurants.
We are situated in a lovely exclusive residential area called Lac du Cavayere, where there is a beach which is only 5 minutes’ walk from the villa, there are pedalos, crazy golf, volley ball courts, and a new activity on the water! See photo, there is also a 02 activity centre for the kids or grownups, which is high in the air, and a zip wire to take you across the lake - and now wakeboarding with a bar and rustic restaurant. All this is only 5 minutes’ walk from Villa Mimosa.
Although Villa Mimosa is in a quiet area, you are minutes from lots going on. We would suggest you hire a car, there is a bus that stops by the lake, but it does not run very late at night.
The town of Carcassonne itself, where you will find numerous bars, cafes, shops, theatre and a local market which is held twice a week. There are lots of lovely villages to discover like the medieval market town of Mirepoix, Minnervois and Corberes.
If you want to explore further afield then Andorra is just a 2 hour drive from the villa, (my husbands driving) where you can stock up on all your duty free purchases and also designer goods. Barcelona is just 2 hours’ drive and Gerona 1 hours’ drive. There is a public bus which runs from the lake to the Castle and Town and there are supermarkets a short drive away where you will find all your everyday needs. But we would recommend that you hire a car to explore all the lovely villages around.
It is 40mins drive from the Med at Narbonne, so you could be sitting on the beach, there really is so much to do:

Hi <br/>Thank you for looking at our Villa Mimosa. A few years ago we went to the French Property show in London, and saw lots of great villas, when we eventually decided Carcassonne was the place for us we started to look at some properties but nothing suited our requirements, so we decided to approach a local builder and architect and hey Presto! We have our dream holiday home, we hope you will find it as lovely as we do, its in a really great location.
|Year property purchased||1999|
|Why this location?||Its 5 minutes walk to a lovely lake with its own beach, and so much going on.
Now it even has a lovely bar and restaurant over looking all the wakeboarding, if you dont want to drive just wander down and enjoy a beer or glass of wine, sit back and relax.
We are also 5 mins drive from Carcassonne Cite (castle) where there are hundreds of restaurants, shops and cafes.
We are in a quiet location but so much is around us.
