Relaxation and tranquillity in the Corbieres vineyard
The 10 days were very nice in your house, we felt very comfortable with the beautiful garden and the pool! Many thanks also to the house manager, the house offers everything necessary and the pool is very well maintained and she is very friendly and helpful! We will certainly come back and enjoy the sun and the peace and quiet in the Corbieres.

Beautiful holiday home in great nature
The holiday home was the best equipped for us. From bathroom items, kitchen herbs, pasta, sauces and much more, everything was in stock for the first days. Plenty of dishes and towels - you can take a long break from housework :). The house is in a great location for short and long hikes, for racing cyclists a super great area
The landlords have lovingly provided all the sights and tips sorted by languages and activities. But lazing around is also great and the pool is just great.
See you soon.....

Leben wie Gott in Frankreich
Wer immer schon davon geträumt hat, wie Gott in Frankreich zu leben, La Ferrache in Embres-et-Castelmaure ist genau der Ort, wo dieser Traum in Erfüllung geht. Wir haben im Oktober 2017 vier Wochen mit Familie und Freunden einen Super-Urlaub verbracht, mit sportlichen Aktivitäten wie Strassenradfahren durch die urspruenglich-wilden Corbieres und Wandern auf den Spuren der Katharer, Ausflügen nach Narbonne zum Einkaufen in der Markthalle (ein Erlebnis für sich), Boule spielen mit den Einheimischen, Weinverkostungen, und Faulenzen und Lesen am Pool.
Das schöne Haus mit allen Annehmlichkeiten und der private Garten wurden in dieser Zeit zu unserem "Heim". Wir fühlten uns wie zuhause und die Hausmanagerin war jederzeit erreichbar mit Rat und Tat, wenn wir Fragen hatten. Sie stellte sicher, dass der Pool immer picco bello war!
Wir leben an der Westküste der USA und scheuen die weite Anreise nicht, um wieder einmal Urlaub in La Ferrache zu machen.

Beautiful house in a great location.
We spent a wonderful week in La Ferrache last summer. The house is furnished with love and is also practical. You can tell that the owners also enjoy spending their vacation here. The highlight, not only for the children, was the pool, which is very spacious and wonderfully clean thanks to the best technology. The property is no longer brand new, but that also adds to its extraordinary charm. From Embres, you can reach the Mediterranean relatively quickly (about 30 minutes), with the route through the mountains truly breathtaking.
Actually, we wanted to come back next year, but unfortunately, the house was already booked for our desired dates. What a pity!
But we will make it happen someday!!!

Wir haben im Sommer 2017 eine schöne Zeit im Embres verbracht.
Das Haus ist großzügig und gut ausgestattet. Liegt am Rande des Ortes und der Weinberge.
Der Pool ist groß.
Wir hatten während des Urlaubes regelmäßig ordentlich Wind.
Die Lage des Ortes ist in den Bergen - eine halbe bis dreiviertel Stunde vom Meer entfernt.
Im Ort gibt es um 11.00 einen fahrenden Bäcker, 2-3 Mal Gemüse und Fleisch vom Wagen.
Im Sommer steht an der örtlichen Winzer-Genossenschaft ein Foodtruck-Restaurant - ein echtes Erlebnis - nur zu empfehlen!
Auch das Fest zum Nationalfeier war einmalig - ein Muss.
Der Kontakt mit Clara Steiner-Jay und der Housekeeperin Cathérine war hervorragend, Cathérine hat für jedes Problem eine Lösung :-).
Ein Auto ist Pflicht.
Wer nicht auf Rummel aus ist, dem sei das Haus sehr ans Herz gelegt;.
Wir können uns gut vorstellen wiederzukommen.

Perfect French Country Vacation
We four seniors had the pleasure of staying at this lovely home for ten days in September 2016. Located on the edge of a picturesque village, the home is nicely decorated, comfortable and quiet. Everything was very clean and well maintained, including the frequently used washer. We especially appreciated the spacious, well-stocked kitchen and we ate most meals outdoors with a view of the pool and neighboring vineyard. The pool was enjoyed throughout our visit and it was particularly refreshing after a day of exploring the area. Hiking trails, castles, wineries, the coast and Narbonne were favorites. We used the house guidebooks, maps and brochures to help plan activities. We enjoyed our visit here and highly recommend this home - definitely five star!

Eckhard from 50827 Köln
Everything corresponded completely to the description. Above all, the washing machine and dryer were very important to us as a large family. There was a sufficient quantity of dishes, cooking utensils, towels, and bed linen. The house and the outdoor area were impeccably clean and well-maintained, and the pool was a dream. We spent hours of the day in it. Even in scorching temperatures, the terrace was a pleasant place due to the roof. The spaciousness of the property, the pool, and the tasteful furnishings create a true holiday feeling. The bakery and supermarket in nearby Durban have everything a person needs. The cooperative located in the village sells inexpensive and delicious wine. The food truck, which offers delicious food with a view of a beautiful mountain landscape from Thursday to Saturday, is located directly on the cooperative grounds, a few steps from the house. Tables can be reserved for this purpose at the cooperative. By car, you can reach castles, vineyards, interesting cities, and all of this in a beautiful, diverse landscape. The sea is especially beautiful at Plage de Franqui, with its very wide beach and the opportunity to watch kite surfing. The village itself is a real, winding French village. For those looking for peace, relaxation, and authenticity, it is the perfect place. We would also like to thank for the competent and very friendly on-site support! The contact with the friendly landlady was very warm. She answered inquiries immediately and gave very good tips. We had a wonderful vacation and would love to come back.
