Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Oct-2016
Gites near Carcassonne, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Peaceful Location, Close To Swimming Lakes And Perfect For Walking

Les Bernots is a tiny hamlet in the Department d'Aude, Languedoc Roussillon, deep in rural south-western France. A short drive from Carcassonne and ideally located for year-round holidays, with winter ski resorts and a summer Mediterranean climate. Our four beautiful gites in Les Bernots have been extensively refurbished to bring them up to modern standards whilst retaining the original features wherever possible, some of which are reputed to date back to Roman times.

Les Bernots

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from a stay in La Maison de Chauve-Souris.

We were a group of 7 adults and the property comfortably accommodated us.

The bedrooms were spacious and all had good quality and relative new beds. The toilet/shower facilities were more than adequate for our group; these was an endless supply of hot water.

The open plan top floor was lovely if a little hot at times. I would imagine the woodburner would be very effective on a cool Spring/Autumn evening but clearly not needed in July and August!

Kelly; who looks after the property was very attentive and helpful.

The hamlet is lovely and has it seems quite an 'alternative' local population who all seemed incredibly friendly. The market at nearby Esperaza was also a very interesting experience with lots of local produce available.

Perhaps the patio could do with a refurbish with replacement chairs/tables but it met our needs.

The property represented very good value for money. I would not hesitate to re-book should we go back to the area.

The closest airport, Carcassonne, is approximately 40 minutes drive from Les Bernots. Taxi and car-hire is available at the airport; check the Ryanair deals with Hertz through their website. A coach link is also available, from the airport, to the town of Esperaza some 5 miles from Les Bernots.

Nearest villages are a 10-15 minute walk with the closest towns, Esperaza and Quillan being a 10-15 minute drive. There are many great restaurants, cafes and bars around this area, and all your grocery needs can be found in shops in Esperaza with a local market also there every Sunday. The intermarche is a 10 minute drive away just out of Esperaza. The nearest swimming lake is a 10 minute drive in Puivert, however there are a number of beautiful swimming lakes and pools not far from Les Bernots.

Further Details:

Carcassonne Castle is an amazing place to visit, just a 30-40 minute drive from the gites, however there are many other castles and historical points of interest closer by like Rennes-le-Chateau, made famous by the Da Vinci Code.
