Couiza, Aude, Occitanie
Set within south west France, this luxuriously equipped home comes highly recommended offering spacious, well-appointed accommodation throughout. The property has a large private heated pool set back in the tiered garden to give an amazing view whilst swimming or sunbathing.

If you haven't been to Couiza before then prepare to be impressed, with a lovely old town, it's own fortress (Ducs de Joyesue) and nestled beneath Renne le Chateau.

Places to eat locally:
Couiza is blessed with four excellent restaurants that we use regularly. They range from low price to reasonable to ‘time for a treat’.
Le Cantou is visible from the kitchen window, always handy for checking when it is open. We have enjoyed lunches and dinners here. Generally only 2 to 3 dishes on each day as it is freshly prepared, French style in this small, family run r...

Interaction with guests
Access to the whole house, gardens and pool. Private and not shared.

We believe guests prefer privacy and want to be able to treat the house as if their own place for the duration of their holiday. So we are not onsite.

We are always available by various contact methods and have local guardians of our house in the village who can assist with any issues arising.

We had a wonderful stay in this immaculate modern contemporary house. Location is stunning, views of the landscape all around and a view across the town from the large balcony. Great for watching your other half walk to the bakery. The pool was delightful, incredibly clean, surrounded by a terraced garden with natural planting. Lovely relaxing on the rattan loungers...

Set in a pretty village, a short drive from the airport, the house sits on the side of a hill with an amazing view of the village and surrounding countryside. The house has everything you could possibly want - a real home from home. Good restaurants and the local boulangerie are only a short stroll away. The pool is beautiful...

The best way to get around is by car as there are many lovely villages and vineyards to explore.
However there are other ways to get around too.
There is a good bus service to Carcassonne from the village of Couiza. There is also a train that runs twice a day for just a euro and goes to Limoux and Carcassonne that runs from Montazel less than 1km from the house.
Couiza itself has several great boulangeries, 3-4 restaurants ranging in price, two bars and a supermarket on the outskirts just 1 km from the house where you will also find a bio supermarket and bio butcher. There is an 8-late in the center of the village. Further shopping is available in Limoux just 15km away, a lovely town to meander around.
