L'Ecurie: A Converted Stone Barn
Les Bernots is a tiny hamlet in the Department d'Aude, Languedoc Roussillon, deep in rural south-western France. A short drive from Carcassonne and ideally located for year-round holidays, with winter ski resorts and a summer Mediterranean climate. Our four beautiful gites in Les Bernots have been extensively refurbished to bring them up to modern standards whilst retaining the original features wherever possible, some of which are reputed to date back to Roman times.

Beautiful gite very welcoming commune incredible views
Thank you for the lovely review Dan, great to hear you enjoyed your stay!
L'environnement est loin d'être charmant... il faut regarder au loin pour voir de belles choses. Pas mal de détails à l'intérieur sont décevants pourtant il y a le charme des vieilles pierres et vieilles poutres.
Nous n'avons pas été comblés au point de vouloir y revenir.
I am sorry you feel this way, I'm not sure why you think the environment is less than charming as the area is a lovely little place. It is very rural but we do state that to everyone who books, and it is on the advert description. Our properties are decorated in a lovely rustic decor & if anything does need improving we will speak to our property manager and get it sorted. Thank you for your review.
Perpignan is the closest beach, about 1h30 drive and there are various other beautiful beaches to visit like Canet-Plage.
The closest airport, Carcassonne, is approximately 40 minutes drive from Les Bernots. Taxi and car-hire is available at the airport; check the Ryanair deals with Hertz through their website. A coach link is also available, from the airport, to the town of Esperaza some 5 miles from Les Bernots.
Nearest villages are a 10-15 minute walk with the closest towns, Esperaza and Quillan being a 10-15 minute drive. There are many great restaurants, cafes and bars around this area, and all your grocery needs can be found in shops in Esperaza with a local market also there every Sunday. The intermarche is a 10 minute drive away just out of Esperaza. The nearest swimming lake is a 10 minute drive in Puivert, however there are a number of beautiful swimming lakes and pools not far from Les Bernots.
Carcassonne Castle is an amazing place to visit, just a 30-40 minute drive from the gites, however there are many other castles and historical points of interest closer by like Rennes-le-Chateau, made famous by the Da Vinci Code.
