The infinity pool, lit at night, is fabulous with gorgeous views to the Pyrenees. The location is well located for exploring the area and especially Carcassonne. Georges and Marie are wonderful hosts and made us and our two dogs very welcome. It is definitely special and can highly recommend.

Before arriving the owners sent an information pack which was incredibly useful and meant when we arrived at the cottage we could settle in easily and comfortably. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean - each room felt warm and comforting. The location of the cottage was great as it was in a more secluded area (very peaceful) but within walking distance of bars, resturants and shops. Within the cottage was an info pack which contained leaflets of things to do within the surrounding areas which meant that each day we were spoiled for choice with activities! One evening we were slightly cold so asked the owners about heating and the next day the property maneger had put radiators within the bedrooms! Great location, lovely owners, warm and welcoming property- would definitely recommend any of my friends to stay here!

Fantastic view of Le cite, as the apartment is right at the bottom of it. Parking tricky round about so it was great to have a garage although pleased we turned down the hire car upgrade as it was good to have a smaller car to manoeuvre in. Hosts lovely and very welcoming. We found lots to do round about and the history, scenery and caves and gorges were stunning. Can't wait to return to this area.
