From the Owner

We loved this property the first time we saw it. The views are magnificent and we are really close to numerous Cathare castles and lovely villages in the local style. Tradition is important here and festivals reflect this all year round. We are at the heart of a huge wine region and many great wines are produced here. Dining out is a real treat with many and varied restaurants and restaurant locations. Medieval Carcassonne is great and there are several superb restaurants within the battlements. Do come and find out for yourself, peace lower pace and plenty for all ages
