About the property

Brilliantly converted stone barn in a small French village

Chez-Georges is a quiet, modern, very well furnished, two-storey, two-bedroom stone house in the tiny village of Courtauly – close enough to all the things you want to see – and yet still far enough away so you can enjoy the relaxing country life. We are centred in a triangle cornered by Limoux, Mirepoix,and Chalabre – each offering its own special tastes of France, with markets, fine wines, great restaurants, endless walking and cycling trails, and the majestic Cathare castles that highlight the area. The house is a converted stone barn with 170 square meters on 2 floors – with the kitchen, eating, and sitting area downstairs leading a large fenced garden (425 sqm) and patio, while the 2nd floor features a large open-plan living room with a raised bedroom overlooking the garden through large sliding glass doors - with a large en-suite with bath and shower adjacent. We received 8 five-star Top Rural ratings from guests last year.

Courtauly 👍🌞⛈ Delightful destination ...

  • 5 of 5

A most beautiful Gite in a quiet but friendly French village, The owners are on site and couldn't be more helpful for directions.. restaurants.. and places to see, pre book your weather beforehand with JP and you will find yourself at the bottom of the garden under the shade of the Walnut tree Phew!!

There is a generous welcome pack awaiting your arrival, the two major towns around you are Limoux and Moirpoix both around 15 km in a triangle with Courtauly both with ample restaurants to suit your tastes and shopping if you require...

Thank you Alex and JP for the use of your Gite for our Languedoc Vacance..

Terry, Anne, June

Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Une location exceptionnelle qui réponds en tous points aux besoins d'une famille ou d'amis. Tout est à disposition et en parfait état, rien ne manque pour profiter du calme de cette grande maison moderne et de son jardin calme et entretenu.

Barbecue, salon de jardin, wifi, satellite, linge de lit et de toilette.... tout est là !

De plus, les propriétaires sont des gens vraiment très très sympathiques et conviviaux. Nous avons été emballés et avons pu profiter pleinement de nos vacances pour visiter les châteaux cathares en toute sérénité.

Je recommande vivement cette location !

C'est un accueil très très chaleureux que vous trouverez en arrivant dans cet espace calme et très bien aménagé. Nous y avons passé une semaine en famille (2 enfants) la maison est idéale pour se reposer et pour que les enfants puissent jouer en toute tranquillité.

Nous avons donc passé un séjour très agréable avec notre hôte toujours bienveillant.

Ne pas hésitez si vous souhaitez passé de très bonnes vacances prêt de Carcassonne car (idéalement située pour visiter le pays Cathare) et profiter au calme d'une petite banquette de Limoux

Chez-Georges can be a great home base for your holiday, the quiet to come home to after a day of hiking, sight-seeing, cycling, visiting spectacular Cathares castles, and the fascinating cities and towns around us. Carcassonne, with its brilliant walled “La Cite” is 40 minutes away, Narbonne, and a gallery of beautiful fishing villages, is just over an hour to the east, while Toulouse, the “Paris of the South” is an hour north-west, not to forget the duty-free shops of Andorra, an hour or so south, on the Spanish border - all of this in an area that boasts sunshine 300 days a year.
