Spacious accommodation with all necessary facilities and a swimming pool in a peaceful rural location close to the delightful medieval walled city of Carcassonne and with many opportunities to view the antics of the boat owners navigating the locks on the Canal du Midi.
The owners offer wine tasting of their own wine - the bottle awaiting our arrival was excellent. The location enabled us to experience the Yellow Train in the Pyrenees to the south and the Roman acqueduct in Nimes to the north west and many places in between. Highly recommended and Sylvie was very welcoming.
The studio/cottage is tucked away in the beautiful grounds of Norbert and Monique’s home. Our hosts were very pleasant and hospitable without being intrusive. We had use of the pool at any time plus the use of the bicycles on site- great for cycling along the Canal du Midi. We hired a car from Carcassonne airport and went touring most days, guided by Norbert and Monique’s excellent local knowledge.
The cottage is compact but spacious enough for 2 people comfortably and is clean and well equipped, with nice outdoor area as well. A car is necessary for getting around as there is very little public transport in this area, but the roads are good and very quiet in the rural areas. There are lots of interesting places to visit. A lovely, relaxing week and good weather as well.
