The house was lovely, well equipped, and perfectly located.

4 of 5
The property is perfect for spending a short break in Carcasonne. It is very well equipped, a very comfortable bed, modern bathroom and although there is no oven the cooking facilities are adequate for breakfast and lunch. There is also a BBQ which is perfect for cooking in the evening. The property is ideally located for exploring the area and near to the main tourist attraction and some lovely restaurants within walking distance. We had a really lovely stay. Elisabeth the owner is great to deal with and very welcoming. She was most helpful when we ran into a couple of minor problems.

Well equiped gite, clean, best for couples and most importantly dog friendly

4 of 5
Well equiped and clean gite, for our taste a bit dark and we missed having an outdoor space with a view. There is a walled-in terrace at the back, good for meals. We had brought our topper for the double bed and I am glad I did, the matrass is quite hard, but then I do have a bad back. Also bring your own entertainment, there is no tv, so if you do fancy a night in, that is something to be considered, the couches need replacing. On a positive note, its dogfriendly, the owners are really lovely, we went with them to a wine bar (check it out, its in siran, very nice food) they do live upstairs and work from home, so if you want complete peace and quite and being on your own, please take that into account. So all in all to sum it up, the price of this gite refelects the minor ‘negative’ things we found. Its a perfect place for visiting the black mountains, in Minerve do book an outside table in relais chantovent, not cheap but worth it. We cycled many of the voie vert, canal du midi, in the pyrenees, but our favorite was at the top of the black mountains around Olargues which was very pretty. Ofcourse carcassonne is a must, go early in the morning, massive crowds otherwise. There are many pretty lakes around too, from Olargues you can follow the 3 or 4 lake route, bring a picnic. I did miss having an information book in the gite, where people have written recommendations and their experiences. It normally is our guide to a new area, indeed you can asked the proprietors, but sometimes getting first hand tourist information is invaluable. So all in all, it was a pleasant stay, we loved the area and will return to the mid-pyrenees since there is much to explore. Thanks Philippe for allowing our bikes to be stored in his garage, (your car will be parked onto the road) and all the delicious goodies and Sylvies hospitality. (Philippe and Sylvie speak english).
