The village has the essentials and is very easy to get to Carcassone. There are beautiful walks nearby too. Mel and Colin were both fabulous to deal with. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed for 20 of us to have a relaxing and comfortable stay. Colin had lit a fire for us on arrival which was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. All of the rooms were lovely and each room has its own bathroom which is a bonus. The outside area was great for children who enjoyed many hours in the pool. The hot tub was also an added luxury! On Mel and Colin's recommendation we also used a chef who came to the house and cooked for all of us on a number of occasions. Petra and her husband Marcel were absolutely amazing and well worth it. Mel and Colin gave us many recommendations of things to do in the area and places to eat and it is the perfect house to do as little or as much as you want. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we will be back!! Jen

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.

The gite is dog friendly and our dogs certainly enjoyed their stay as much as we did. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. There is plenty to do in the area, including the most incredible castles built on high rocky outcrops, medieval villages and towns, the Canal du midi, to name but a few. We will certainly be returning to explore some more of the area.
