Our 18th century holiday cottage and bed and breakfast in southern France…

On a peaceful village square in the hills south of Carcassonne, our 3 bedroom holiday cottage and bed and breakfast offer a great base for exploring Languedoc & the Midi. Close to Mirepoix, the lovely medieval bastide hosts the best market in the region. Carcassonne & Toulouse airports are an easy drive, Perpignan, Montpelier & Barcelona just a bit further.

Close to the sandy beaches and turquoise blue waters of two lovely lakes, “wild” swimming is a real treat, kayaks and dinghies for hire. Our cyclist friendly accommodation is a great base for cycling Languedoc. Explore famous Cathar sites – medieval Carcassonne, Montsegur, Peyrepertuse and Foix are all close-by . Horse riding, prehistoric caves, vineyards, farmers’ markets, painting classes in Mirepoix, or if it all sounds too much, 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. Our hens scratch around in the garden at the back providing eggs for your fluffy omelette at breakfast, the kids love to collect them. Let us know if you require a gluten or dairy free diet.

Cottage from 495 euros per week, short breaks available ~ double room at the B&B from 68 euros per night
