Village house, Lapradelle in Aude, a gite in Languedoc-Roussillon: Terrace

4-bedroom house sleeping 7+cot, in a quiet street, with balcony and roof terrace

Set in a quiet street, this lovely, comfortable house sleeps 7 people plus cot in one double, two twins and one single bedroom. The accommodation comprises:

Ground Floor: Hallway, single bedroom, twin bedroom. Bathroom with shower, wc and basin. Small kitchenette with tumble dryer. The back door leads out on to the south-facing patio, beyond which is the garden, grassed and safe for children.

First floor: Landing. Double bedroom, twin bedroom. Bathroom with bath, shower, wc and basin. Separate wc. Dining area with dining table and chairs for seven people. The kitchen is well-equipped with 4-plate electric cooker, 2 fridges, microwave and all utensils. The pantry has the washing-machine and dish-washer. Porte-fenetres lead out on to the breakfasting balcony with its view to the south over the garden, the village, the castle and the surrounding hills. Small second barbecue.

Top Floor: Very large living-room with beamed ceiling; wifi, nternet access, telephone, DVD player with films, radio/cassette, comfortable seating, many books and cassettes. Porte-fenetres lead out on to the large, south-facing roof terrace with its superb view over the valley towards the castle of Puilaurens and the ring of mountains beyond.

We say 'for romantics only, for lovers of the countryside, of France profonde, of village life, of fauna and flora, of history, of castle-bagging, of bird-watching' - or just lazing on the roof terrace enjoying the wonderful panorama. This is a truly beautiful place.

After about 300 yards, Rue du Cabanot turns into a footpath leading down the valley to Caudies, the next village. The baker's van often stops outside the house in the mornings with fresh bread. All around is wonderful walking country. There is an international water sports centre at Axat. There are many places to swim in the area, au naturel or municipal. This is a very historic area with medieval castles and battlements at every turn. It is an easy 35-mile drive to Perpignan and the coast. Carcassonne is Europe's largest medieval fortified city, a magnificent sight. On the way there, you pass through Esperaza (dinosaur museum) and Limoux on the river Aude. This is Da Vinci Code country with the mysterious Rennes le Château not far away.

We provide bedding and towels without charge. We ask only that you bring your own cot sheets, also towels for the beach or for sunbathing. We send keys to you in advance to allow you to arrive at your convenience. We hope you will contribute to the house's travel journal which is a mine of information and advice - and an entertaining read. Unfortunately, reception of UK television programmes has recently been withdrawn.

Lapradelle is a wonderful place for a holiday - spectacular and historic with walks in all directions.
