Getting around

We recommend having a car but it is not essential and we have had many guests over the years who come 'car-free'. There is a year-round bus service into Carcassonne which costs 1 euro a journey and operates several times a day. We have bikes which we lend to guests which are great for exploring the local area. There are several walks direct from the gite through vineyards and countryside to local wine domaines and our local bar/restaurant. There are taxis plus we operate an unofficial taxi service when available for 15 euros anywhere in the Carcassonne area. Carcassonne railway station has direct connections to Toulouse, Narbonne, Barcelona and Quillan in the foothills of the Pyrennees. Journeys to Quillan cost 1 euro.

Interaction with guest

We live in the main house above our three gites and are around much of the time so we are on hand to help guests with queries, information and problem solving. When guests arrive they usually ring our door bell, we show them in, answer queries and hand over the keys. We are usually on hand to take the keys back off guests at the end of the stay and wish our guests 'bon voyage'.

“A relaxing and quirky place to stay”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2017

The apartment is set in quiet grounds in a sleepy little village, all very peaceful, and with a lovely bakery a few minutes walk away. Carcassone is nearby and is great for exploring, meals out etc. We had lots of day trips out to Tolouse, Albi,Narbonne and the Tarascon caves. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and were very helpful when we had a scrape with the hire car. We loved our week here and would highly recommend this property as a good base to explore the surrounding countryside.

“Good location but not luxury - more suited to a couple than a family”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

This gite is in a convenient location for exploring Carcassonne and access to the coast. It has a good pool and spacious grounds. The hosts are very friendly. However, I would describe the accomodation as 'basic' rather than 'luxury'. It is housed in a block beneath the owner's part of the house, located in between the owners' garage and utility space. Hence, it has limited natural light and ventilation. The space, the amount of storage and the lounge seating/dining is better suited to a couple than to a family of four or more. One practical suggestion: It would make a difference if the old piano which is housed in this small space (and which was unplayable at the time we were staying) could be replaced with either a chest of drawers, armchair or a larger fridge.

Owner's reply: We have been thinking about how best to accommodate families and as a result are undertaking a major revamp of our gite during the winter 2012/13. Firstly we are adding a second bedroom, which will increase floorspace, storage space and double the number of bedspaces. Also, an extra French window will give additional natural light and ventilation. We are also redesigning the living area, installing new furniture, UK satellite TV and undertaking a complete redecoration. We think these changes, together with our much-praised pool area and two acres of grounds, will provide an ideal combination for families, and indeed, all our guests.
