18th century holiday cottage and bed and breakfast in southern France…Re-opens 1 May 2015
On a pretty little village square south of Carcassonne, our holiday cottage and bed and breakfast offer French country style accommodation for couples and families. Cyclist friendly accommodation, a great base for exploring Languedoc and the Midi – beautiful, medieval Mirepoix is a few minutes away has the best farmer’s market in the region. Carcassonne & Toulouse airports are an easy drive, Perpignan, Montpelier, Beziers & Barcelona just a bit further.
Two lovely lakes within a few minutes drive or cycle ride, the “wild” swimming is a treat, kayaks and dinghies for hire. Explore famous Cathar sites – Carcassonne, Montsegur, Peyrepertuse and Foix are all close-by . Horse riding, prehistoric caves, vineyards, farmers’ markets, painting classes in Mirepoix. Or if all this sounds too much, slow right down, choose a book from the library, pour yourself a glass of something, and listen to the sound of cowbells from a comfy lounger on the roof terrace.
Nick’s cooking has fabulous reviews, his food is fresh and local, its provenance assured, much is grown organically on his potager. Menus reflect the seasons and the sun-drenched flavours of Languedoc, washed down with some very nice regional wines.Let us know if you require gluten or dairy free, vegetarian or vegan.
