L'Olivier Vert is a charming two-bedroom gite in the heart of a renovated 18th century watermill and set amid two acres of gardens near Carcassonne. The 11m pool attracts sun from dawn to dusk and the gite is close to all local amenities.

The space

Located between medieval Carcassone and the beautiful Black Mountains of Languedoc-Roussillon, the Olivier Vert's pool, facilities and many original features makes it ideal for a summer, autumn or winter break.
The Olivier Vert comprises one double and one twin bedroom, a kitchen area, bathroom, lounge and terrace for outdoor eating.
We have a 11x5m pool which is shared with our two others gites and ourselves. It has a large and secluded poolside terrace and decking area which which receives sun from dawn to dusk.
There is plenty to explore in the two acres of grounds and gardens at the Olivier Vert.
Sports facilities include badminton, football and trampolining.
Free wifi and secure off-road parking are all also included.

Guest access

Pretty much anywhere. There is the pool and decking area, the gite terrace, various relaxation/sitting areas, the parking area, the badminton area, river, even the bamboo grove is worth exploring! We also have guest washing machine facilities.

Interaction with guests

If needed, we are always available just by ringing our doorbell because we live upstairs.

Other things to note

We are pet and child friendly. We have a travel cot, high chair and paddling pool, plus games, bats and balls and kids DVDs for settling them down in the evening. We have a friendly dog called Lilly who is a hit with almost everyone who has ever stayed here.
One useful thing to know is that tap water here is fine to drink! There is no need to lug heavy drinking water containers from the local shop as tap water is the same quality as the UK.

There are no extra charges so there is no cleaning fee, no additional guest fee, no weekend pricing. Arrival time is usually any time after 4pm on the first day, and check out time 11am on the last day.
However this not written in stone, depending on flight times, other bookings etc. For instance, guests arriving early often drop off baggage or use the pool and terraces if the gites are not ready when they arrive. Likewise, we can often work round an afternoon departure flight.
