I loved the upstairs room I stayed in, clean, lovely decour with a tremendous view of both The Black Mountains and Aleric mountain range. As I did not have transport Julie was gracious enough...

Just a few minutes from Carcassonne airport, this is the perfect retreat for anyone wanting to escape a busy lifestyle for a few days. The famous fortified city is only a short drive away... a journey that takes you through vast vineyards down roads lined with fig and pine trees. This really is a part of France that has to... More

We spent one night at this delightful B & B on the way home from Barcelona. Our hostess, Julie, was charming, attentive and helpful. She provided an excellent dinner at a very fair price, which was delicious home cooking. Breakfast next morning was equally super, with home-made jams, fresh fruit salad, artisanal bread , good coffee and more. We resumed... More

The location is great, close to Carcassonne, but feel like in the country. For less than 20 euro per person, it is hard to imaging a better deal. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms that require sharing the bath. The room is very clean and the bed is comfortable enough. There is an electric tea pot in the... More
