Bedrooms 5, Sleeps 9
|La Bouzole||Self Catering||Friday||3||6||2|
We have had lots of highly positive reviews about the villa and the reviews tell you all you need really. Guests have pointed out the comfy beds, the new kitchen, the heated pool and hot tub. Those with children (over age 6 only) have recommended the Netflix, Prime we have, plus the British satellite tv and the ever so important good quality wi-fi !!
The kitchen is very well equipped having just been put in this year. I have just also bought an automatic ice dispenser and a refrigerated wine cabinet which take 24 bottles of not just wine but also water, juice etc....
There is a family bathroom with shower and bath and there is an en suite in the master bedroom with as shower, loo and basin. Neither loos are designed to take only loo paper - nothing else as we have a fosse septique (septic tank). Sorry about that but you can put other things into the normal bin or if you are coming in the cooler months burn things in the woodburner.
Outside we have lots of seating on the terrace, beside the pool and down in the garden and we have a bbq for your use. What I like doing is opening the bedroom frenchwindows in the morning and sitting on the cafe chairs and table on the terrace which is on directly out of our window on the terrace. Two bedrooms have French windows and open out to the terrace.
The sitting room has 3 frenchwindows all directly opening out to the terrace. Perfect for catching the view and seeing the dawn rise.
The pool is maintained every week and as well having a pool we also have a pool shower where people can either cool down or wash off sun lotion before they go into the pool or hot tub.
I have tried to give you a flavour of La Bouzole but if you have any queries or want to see our positive reviews please come back to me.

Lots of glasses in a glass cabinet, and good quality crockery in the both glass cabinet and also in the kitchen cupboards. There is plastic dinnerware for use around the pool or to take on a picnic.
I have also put some boardgames in the cabinets around the tv and there are good books there too (in English) which prior guests have kindly left for your use.

There are 3 areas in the villa's space. The villa is detached therefore there is garden around all sides.
Front garden - parking area here, washing line at the side, a lovely cherry tree and front double gates
Terrace with dining set and cafe-style coffee seating set.
Steps down to: pool area, newly paved, with loungers, pool, hot tub, table and chairs, bbq.
Lower garden a wide space within to play ball etc. There is also a gazebo with more sitting/lounging area.
Room for 3 cars within the front garden area which is partly of hard ground.
There are only 3 steps to get into the villa and if you go out of the front door there are no steps to access the pool area. However there are steps to get into the pool and 2 steps to get into the hot tub.
There is only one step within the villa and there are handy hand grips on each side. There are also a handgrip in the en suite shower room.
Due to our insurance no children under the age of 7 are allowed in La Bouzole. I am so sorry about this!
You will have a Guest Information Pack in the villa.
Francophile! We chose our property because of the wide panorama of the Aude valley where we can see the Pyrenees and Carcassonne from our terrace.
|Year property purchased||2013|
|Why this location?||It is so lovely and so close to the wonderful Arts and Book Town of Montolieu which has loads of restaurants, art galleries and a fab British wine merchant who is so very welcoming.|
|Unique benefits of property||We have put together everything we would want to have on holiday... from great outside areas, garden, heated pool, hot tub and inside, we have a Smart tv with Netflix, Prime and Brit Satellite tv. Plus a brand new kitchen and an Alexa to tell you jokes! Our furniture is modern yet we have a fab woodburner for the colder months. The view is the best thing about the property if you ask me! The view changes as the day progresses. Magical!|
Adrian Mould has the wine shop in Montolieu. He is British and has a speciality in wines in the area. He also has lots and lots of wine tasting events. If you go in, he is very likely to open a bottle for you to taste.
