Domaine de Poulharies, an ancient castle of the Counts of Poulharies, of bishops and mayors of Carcassonne, offers a choice of three large cottages with two fenced swimming pools with shower and toilet. Being only 1 km from Carcassonne (on the road to Toulouse) the location is ideal, very close to visit the medieval 'walled city'. Domaine de Poulharies is situated in the quiet atmosphere of a private hill surrounded by vineyards (no passing cars) with a clear view of Black Mountain and the Pyrenees, and a country path bringing you to the beautiful Canal du Midi just a stroll away.
Our spacious cottages of 130-350 mt², with 4/5 bedrooms for 12/13 people and 2 bathrooms, make the ideal home for families, meetings of friends and associations: for the largest of groups, the large dining room of the Carignan has place for 20/30 people. They are equipped with every home comfort, including high chair and cot, and have their own outdoor covered terrace with table, chairs and barbecue. There is a free WiFi point near the office.
The domaine with its open spaces, park, gardens, play areas for children and teenagers, vegetable garden with sheep, poultry, fish pond, and surrounding views is the ideal place to celebrate beautiful events in a charming, historic location.
The two swimming pools are fenced to protect your children, who can safely play in either of two large parks. One park has swings for the little ones, table tennis and bench seats. The other park has basketball hoops and a volleyball net for older children, as well as bench seats, barbecue and a large seated table.
Ideal for relaxing, a convenient base for sightseeing in the Languedoc Roussillon of the Aude department, you can visit the famous fortified town of Carcassonne, Mirepoix markets (Monday), Revel, and Castelnaudary to enjoy it's cassoulet. From here you can also visit the Cathar castles: Pierrepertuise, Queribus, Montsegur, the beautiful and wild hills of the Corbieres, Limoux to taste his Blanquette, the local champagne; Rennes le Chateau with his misterious treasur, the abbeys of La Grasse, St Hilaire and Fontfroide; Narbonne, or go to the Mediterranean beaches or you can bring the kids to the lake of the Cavaillere, just 10 minutes away.
