ROCREUSE (2 x 5 pers)
2 Cottages & pool in traditional French manor-house setting


i
St.Martin-le-Veil, Aude, Languedoc - Roussillon, 15 mins fromCarcassonne airport, 50 mins Toulouse.
Two cottages, each with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeping 5 & 6 ( or 11 if both booked together ).

Rocreuse Cottages look onto a fine courtyard in the French classical tradition, enclosed on four sides by handsome buildings, entered by an arched gatehouse. The owners live in the imposing manor-house' to one side. On the other side there are fine stables. The cottages are in the wings, making up the four sides. At the front, the cottages look onto the courtyard, but at the rear they open directly on to a spacious garden (two acres of lawn & mature trees) and the very large swimming-pool, 13m x 6.5m. The property is approached by a fine tree-lined drive (so there is no passing traffic) and surrounded by lovely peaceful countryside. Inside, the houses have been beautifull modernised without losing their traditional character, with much use of traditional tiles & fine wood floors & beams ; some furnishings are modern, some good-quality antique, and the beds have modern bases & mattresses. Despite the elegant architectural setting, the atmosphere, the 'ambience', is homely, cosy and peaceful. With lovely towns nearby to visit, a fine house, pool & garden, and pretty countryside, this is a base for a memorable holiday.

The Cottages.
Each cottage has a ground floor with comfortably furnished living-room including a sofa-bed & television. The kitchen/dining-room is well-fitted for cooking & dining, with modern cooker & oven, fridge-freezer, micro-wave, dish-washer & washing-machine.

Upstairs there are two good-sized bedrooms, one double & one with three singles, and modern bathroom with shower, hand-basin & w.c. Outside at rear there are sitting-out/dining areas & barbecue, direct access to the pool & garden, & views across the countryside.
