  • A gem in the cobiere region
    5 of 5

    A fantastic property, lovingly restored, with a fabulous private pool. High quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The owners were fabulous - warm, welcoming, multi-lingual and available to answer any questions on both the property and surrounding areas. This is a place where you can achieve total relaxation, surrounded by rolling countryside, which also makes the perfect location for cycling, walking and river/lake swimming should you wish to be a little more energetic! The village is a short walk and offers everything you need, or a short drive can take you to Lagrasse, Trebes or Carcassonne. We had a superb break enjoying wines from the region and exploring from Carcassonne to Narbonne.

  • A lovely appartment in a pretty village offering all you could want for a fantastic holiday
    5 of 5

    What a delightful time we spent in Claire's appartment in Cucugnan! It is clean, well equipped and very comfortable with a small garden where we sat sipping local wine each evening. Nothing was too much trouble for Claire (She lives above.) and she was not only very welcoming (offering us glasses of her favourite wines accompanied by delicious snacks and home-made savoury tart) but provided us with a 'starter-pack' of basic food essentials. She was also an endless source of local knowledge and useful information. The village, which hugs a hill, with a windmill on top, has a choice of three restaurants and a couple of bars that offer a range of delicious food; a grocery store/post office; a bakery (producing artisanal bread), a few small pottery/craft studios; several little souvenir shops, a winery and a honey producer. There is everything you need on site so sorties to bigger towns are not necessary to buy supplies and gifts. We came home laden with local wine,and honey, colourful bowls and home-made soap. The surrounding countryside is magnificent with stunning views from the village. We walked for miles every day; swam in the cool, clear rivers and did our cultural bit when we visited Queribus and Peyrepertuse Chateaux perched on the top of rocky outcrops nearby. There are weekly markets on different days in surrounding towns and 'vide grenier' events, too. In fact, there was so much to do, that we ended up reading a lot less than usual! To top everything, the weather was superb. We wanted for nothing and we highly recommend both the place and the appartment for a blissful break. Thank you Claire for looking after us so well.
