About Mark Figgins

We are a young, happy, healthy couple from the UK. After years of soul searching and globe-trotting we have settled in the beautiful Languedoc-Rousillon region of South East France. With a wealth of hospitality experiences from various industries between us, notably as an established luxury yacht charter couple, we provide elegantly casual service to a high standard. In addition to her abilities as an experienced charter chef, Andrea is a qualified Aromatherapist and masseuse able to provide a number of treatments from the spa in the annex to the house. Mark has a drive for the out door life, and we aim to provide, or at the very least point you in the right direction when it comes to all the local activities from mountain biking to kite surfing and much more...

Why Mark Figgins chose Aude

The house just leapt out at us as a haven or tranquillity and calm from the first instant we walked in. Stunning lake views, surrounded by radiant countryside you can't but help relax in the house and grounds.

We absolutely love the area. For us Carcassonne airport is both close by and very easy to use, has that 'rustic' island style to it! We are just an hour from skiing in the mountains or kite surfing the beautiful beaches on the coast. We regularly visit daily local markets for fresh fruit and vegetables, or just to soak up the atmosphere over a coffee. Truly loving our life choice in this beautiful region of France.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The property is ideally located in the heart of the Languedoc. We provide pool towels and so you can travel light and make the most of the beautiful local lakes and beaches. For those who enjoy a more active holiday, you can take advantage of white water rafting, canoeing, kite surfing and dune sailing, sailing & skiing all within an hour. If you are looking for great food and relaxation in the comfort of the villa, we can also provide catering and massages by the pool. Just ask for information when booking.

Simply idyllic!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. A lovely, quiet house with beautiful views of the lake and surrounding countryside. Plenty of space to spread out both inside and out but also with lots of peaceful corners to relax with a book and a glass of wine.

The house is spotless, comfy and fully equipped with everything needed for a relaxing stay.

Thank you Mark & Andrea, we will definitely be back!

Fantastic well equipped property in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion at Maison Tranquil was perfect with excellent accommodation, plenty of equipment for self catering and plenty to explore around the villa. Great old railway routes nearby for cycling, walks around the lake and vineyards and historic towns a short drive away. After exploring the area it was great to get back to the beautiful property and pool to relax. Our hosts,who were very helpful and friendly, cooked an amazing meal for our final evening. Thank you!

Wonderful family holiday at Maison Tranquil!

  • 5 of 5

Maison Tranquil is such a beautiful, homely and peaceful place to stay that it was impossible not to relax and unwind which was just what we had all been so looking forward to. We received a warm welcome from Mark & Andrea. The spacious property was extremely well equipped and clean. We enjoyed a couple of days out and about taking in the local landscape and villages. And we especially enjoyed our lively day at Carcasonne Plage - the children were in their element (us adults had a bit of a blast too!). We will treasure many happy family memories lounging by the pool and all eating together around the table on the terrace during the warm evenings.
