“Perfectly relaxing holiday”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2014

A lovely, relaxing holiday in a beautifully converted barn in a small French village. The friendly and helpful owner lives in the adjoining property but the barn is quiet and private. Accommodation is spacious with a huge, well equipped kitchen and large bathroom with feature claw bath. Comfortable bed as well. Highly recommended for a relaxing break. Carcassonne is a 20 minute drive away as are a number of small villages, towns and vineyards. The boulangerie in Montlaur has wonderful breakfast pastries !

“Beautiful gite - home from home”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2013

We stayed at Chateau D'Eau the last week in July and had a really wonderful holiday. The apartment is on the ground floor of a beautifully converted stone barn, attached to the main house. The owners have done a lovely job of converting the house and gardens to a very high spec. We've never stayed in such a well-equipped holiday home - every piece of kitchen gadgetry you could wish for! The pictures don't really capture just how much room there is to spread out. There's no air conditioning but don't let that put you off. The walls are so thick that the temperature stays nice and cool inside, and there's a good ceiling fan in the bedroom. The owners couldn't have made us feel more welcome as we took over their garden and pool and they even lent us a couple of bikes to explore the area. Montlaur is a pretty little village and it doesn't take long to drive into Carcassonne (20mins) or across to Narbonne and the coast (40mins). We've never been to the south of France before and we both fell in love with the area - the trouble is, we've been so spoilt with this accommodation that we're reluctant to try anywhere else now!
