Carcassonne

Situated on the edge of a sleepy hamlet in the Razes region of the Languedoc, amongst the last of the vineyards of the region. Nestled just 30 mins from Carcassonne, and its walled Unesco world heritage site, and 15 mins to the beautiful towns of Mirepoix or Limoux.

Carcassonne has fantastic shopping with markets on a Wednesday and Saturday, La Cite boasting some fabulous restaurants. Toulouse is just 50 mins away, and Montpellier 1.5 hours.

Local markets available almost daily with all the atmosphere and amazing fresh produce. Boulangerie, farm shop, pharmacy and supermarket are all within a 5-10 min drive of the village.

Local restaurants and bars are available in the two closest main villages of Belveze and Montreal, both 5km away. With some fabulous local wine domains offering a more indulgent experience. Or just soak up the calm and tranquility of rural France lounging by the pool in one of the hammock chairs.

House rules

Unfortunately, the first time in 6 years, we recently had a group with a complete lack of respect and common sense for how you leave a property.
There are no additional cleaning charges, as we appreciate the house needs cleaning and changing over between guests.
All we do ask is that you leave the property as you found it, kitchen cleared away, toys and games etc. If it is necessary to tidy up after guests, washing up etc, a cleaning charge will be taken from the security deposit.

Reviewed 18 Nov 2016

This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location. There is plenty of space and yet lots of cosy corners to relax and unwind. Stunning views. This is a perfect place for a base for a walking, cycling or running holiday/weekend. The house is full of character and has everything you need. It is spotlessly clean and hosts Andrea and Mark are so welcoming and friendly. Definitely recommend!!

“Simply idyllic!”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2016

What a wonderful place. A lovely, quiet house with beautiful views of the lake and surrounding countryside. Plenty of space to spread out both inside and out but also with lots of peaceful corners to relax with a book and a glass of wine. The house is spotless, comfy and fully equipped with everything needed for a relaxing stay. Thank you Mark & Andrea, we will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely words, it was a pleasure to have you stay and you are very welcome back! Many Thanks Andrea and Mark

“Amazing country house in beautiful rural S.W. France”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2016

Stayed at Maison Tranquil with group of friends for an extended weekend stay and could have stayed there longer - stunning house - masses of space and facilities - perfect for a house party to suit all ages. We stayed in October so weather not good enough to use swimming pool but the main lounge has a fantastic log fire burner which is very cosy for the colder evenings! We visitied Mirepoix and Carcarsonne and were impressed with all the countryside surrounding Maison Tranquil. Mark and Andrea and family are perfect hosts with great knowledge of the local area - need to return!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review - always great to know that the house and area have been enjoyed, It would be lovely to see you again! Many thanks Andrea and Mark.

“Must return!!”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2016

A truly wonderful house in a fantastic setting. A magnificent place to relax, the views from the patio across the lake are stunning. The decor is beautiful and tasteful and totally in keeping with the property. The hosts are charming and go out of their way to make your stay very special. I went with some friends to celebrate a special birthday and now planning a return trip but this time I don't need an excuse, just want to get back there asap!.

Owner's reply: Its wonderful to know that Maison Tranquil was the right setting for your special birthday celebrations! We really enjoyed meeting you all and would love to see you all again. Thank you for choosing our house for your break!

“Fabulous property for families with lots of space, great pool and plenty to do nearby”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2016

Had a wonderful week for an extended family reunion. The property was ideal and we were made to feel very welcome by Mark and Andrea. The house was perfect with plenty of space, en suite bathrooms, a fabulous pool, very well equipped kitchen and dining room and lots of outdoor space perfect for catching up after days out. The photos on the website give a good idea although it's better in real life! We visited Caves du Razes, Carcassonne, Mirapoix, Limoux, the Airbus factory in Toulouse (booked in advance) as well as enjoying quieter days walking by the lake and relaxing in the sun by the pool. Bikes were available and we found nearby disused railway lines were ideal for bike rides. Our week was over too soon and ended with a fabulous meal prepared by our hosts. Thanks again.

Owner's reply: It was lovely to meet you and your family and is great to know you all had such a good week. Good tip re the Toulouse Airbus factory, something we will do! Thank you for choosing Maison Tranquil....

“Wonderful peaceful Home! Beautiful house and Beautiful food!”

Reviewed 21 May 2015

I was lucky enough to stay at this beautiful place for a total of 17 days on a workaway and loved every single moment! Mark and Andrea were the most welcoming hosts and I felt at home from day one. The house itself is amazing..each bedroom is big, roomy and clean as well as cosy. One of my favourite parts of the house was the farmhouse style kitchen that led onto the sun terrace that looked out over the lake!! Perfect set up! Had a lot of fun walking and cycling round the area as well as relaxing at the lake. To top it off Mark and Andrea are both excellent chefs and everything they cooked for me was delicious! Couldn't of asked for a better 17 days with this fun laid back family and I can't wait to come here again in the future!
