                                                                                                    5 of 5

The photos do not lie. It is a delightful little house, as cosy and romantic as Shelley described it. Although we didn't use it, there is a lovely little terrace.Everything has been carefully thought out to make guests feel comfortable and at home, with an abundance of useful information from places to visit, how to get to them on foot and by other means it transport, as well as restaurant recommendations. The only criticism is no television, not from me, but by husband. However there was a lovely variety of CDs, and you can connect to the Internet to watch online movies, news etc.(Although secretly, I know my husband would have liked the option of television.) it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The location is fantastic being right in the middle of Carcassonne. Shopping is practically on the doorstep, and places to visit within easy walking distance. Even parking is not a problem, as it is free from 6.00pm until 9.00am, and you can find places to park for free in the streets a bit further away, although we never needed to.

We wanted to 'immerse' in the French culture, village life and hopefully improve our very basic French ! We found the gite extremely comfortable, spacious and homely with the added bonus of a lovely garden area. With the help of a Peter and Felicity we have joined the Montlaurian society for their many ' repas and dancing ' events and Abribus society for the rambling group and also Occitan singing ! We have found the locals to be very friendly and helpful with our struggling french and we were even invited to join in ' hand picking ' the grapes at harvest time which was brilliant fun and included a very french picnic along with lashings of red wine ! The garrigue, which is the surrounding countryside, is amazing and full of tracks between the vines which make it perfect for walking and cycling. The flowers in the spring will be stunning. We would wholeheartedly recommend L'Ecurie for a perfect French holiday and Peter and Felicity are the perfect hosts .
