Whether it's your base for exploring the ruins of Cathar Castles, walking through beautiful nature, strolling the battlements of the medieval La Cité of Carcassonne, cruising along the Canal du Midi on a barge or sampling the beautiful wines of the region – the Cathar Cottage is your perfect home away from home!

The Cottage is located in the village of Pennautier which is found 5 minutes drive North of beautiful Carcassonne. Pennautier has been known as such since 1781, however its history wends it's way back through the Middle Ages and Roman Occupation into pre-history.

The Cathar Cottage is an attached village house on 3 floors (see floor plan in the photo section). The ground floor consists of the entrance, kitchen and dining area, along with a full bathroom. The first floor comprises the Master Bedroom, Sitting Room, Terrace and second toilet. The second bedroom is contained on the second floor.

Pennautier has all the basic services within walking distance, including a newsagent, grocery store, bakeries, butcher, cafe, pizza restaurant, pharmacy, and doctor. The Chateau de Pennautier is on the edge of the village (2 min walk from the Cottage) and dates back to 1620 - a wonderful place to engage in a bit of 'wine tourism'!. Parking is available within meters of the house.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Pennautier

The experience of holidaying in a genuine functioning French village in a cottage full of character. The ability to walk up the street and shop for fresh croissants, baguettes, jambon and fromage to construct your own beautiful picnics. And of course walking 2 minutes through the village at night to visit the lovely restaurant of the Chateau De Pennautier to enjoy a lovely meal and sip a range of the excellent wines that are a product of the Chateau winery.

"An interesting cottage in an old town with plenty of character."

"Petite maison de charme au coeur du village de Pennautier"

Petite maison charmante, au coeur d'un village calme et reposant. Il n'est toutefois pas réaliste d'imaginer y loger à 5 (alors que le gite est présenté pour 5 personnes maxi). Avoi… More
