Had everything we needed . Pool was great to cool down on hot days , which was every day we were there . Jacuzzi was a bonus . Really peaceful for relaxing days . Pézenas was a nice town . We loved Carcassonne , the old city . The local shop sold locally produced wine at a very reasonable price and the croissants from the local bakery were excellent for breakfast . Would love to comeback at some point . Graham was an excellent host and replied almost immediately and posted everything due to my lack of technology . Thanks for a lovely holiday . Sherwood family
PS loved the outside dining area , had all our meals out there .
