Situated in Alet-les-Bains, 42 km from Mirepoix, Maison d'Hotes Le Val d'Aleth features a garden and free WiFi. A continental breakfast is available each morning at the bed and breakfast. All original features, but modern wiring and plumbing that worked!
Set in Alet-les-Bains, Maison Pigeonnier offers accommodation with a private pool, a patio and garden views. The property is 42 km from Mirepoix and free private parking is offered. Very high standards, wonderful owners. The house is very comfortable with plenty of light during the day. Even if the swimming pool and garden are shared with the owners, it feels very private. We went with 3 young children and they loved the place: garden is large, swimming pool is climatized & huge, it has an alarm that warns you in case somebody falls in the pool. The kids could watch movies in the evening using the owners Netflix account. The service is great, they even got us a cot for our baby with less than 24hrs pre-notice.
Situated in Saint-Polycarpe in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Grès Vaillant has a terrace and pool views. Located only a few km from Limoux, so easy for supermarkets, restaurants, etc. The gite is in the middle of the owner's organic vineyard. Made it easy to top up our wine supply:-) The owners were very welcoming and although they live next door and work the vineyard every day, they did not bother us at all - the opposite in fact. Our group were very comfortable there. We will return soon.
Located in the Coumanel, La Bastide Saint Etienne offers self-catering accommodation in the French countryside just 3 km from Limoux and 28 km from Carcasonne. Super big house. Very old village with great countryside walks and treks at your door steps. Fantastic range of information leaflets on very local but also regional indoor and outdoor activities and visits. Owners delighted to share their knowledge of what is suitable depending on your fitness and preferences. Great wine discount access. Lovely pool!
An interesting village with super historical connections. (Nostradamus was here) Lovely,really old houses and town walls -and delicious water from source. At this time of the year ( March) we had to go to Limoux to eat at night. In summer there is camping and canoeing and probably quite a lot to do for visitors.
Loved it! The guesthouse was very charming! Our room was immaculate, with a lovely wrought iron bed and the ensuite had a roll-top bath and shower. The hostess was also lovely and we could have chatted to her over breakfast and beyond! Breakfast was yum, with fresh croissants, bread, coffee, tea, jam, honey and the offer of eggs too. 10/10 for us - hope we get to go back!
Lovely quaint, quiet village with a lot of history, esp. Cathars / Crusaders. It's only 25min drive from Rennes-les-Chateau, or 40 min from Carcassone. The ruined abbey lends charm. The Church has unusual frescos and statues. The quality of the spring water in Alet was brilliant. Really enjoyed getting my daily 2 liters that I got from outside the Hostellerie de l'Eveche, or better still at the old wash place (400m from Hostellerie) where everyone filled up their bottles, some washed clothes - great meeting place! GREAT picnic area on an island, which I often went to in the mornings. Fantastic stay at the B&B Les Marguerites - run by a delightful and caring English couple, Antoinette and Keith. They also serve English Tea and cakes on Saturday, Sunday and Mondays. Le Jardin de Buvette is tucked in the back streets and opens into a beautiful garden for drinks, tea and snacks. Casino down the road, because Napoleon decreed that every Thermal bath town have a casino - that's still there, but the thermal baths are closed. Canoeing facilities in the village too.
Keith and Antoinette are the perfect hosts. Friendly, attentive and a fountain of knowledge about the local area and all things French. They are also incredibly helpful if you want advice or recommendations (as we did) as to where to go next. The area is fabulous whether you want long drives in rugged mountainous terrain, spectacular gorges, amazing forests, castles and abbeys or relaxing beside the beautiful rivers and lakes. Access to some of the castles are not for the fainthearted, ensure you have good footwear if you want to climb to them. Alternatively you can opt for the gentler wine regions and of course Carcassonne is an easy drive away and well worth a visit. The House has been sympathetically restored and the rooms are large, comfortable and have everything you require. The rooms are serviced every day, which we really appreciated. The bathrooms are large and the showers have loads of hot water.. We spent most evenings sitting in the lovely garden with a glass of wine chatting to the others guests from all around the world. We stayed a week and met French, Italians, Cypriot, American and Canadians. Food in the area is great, quintessentially French however if Antoinette is cooking in the evening do opt in, its well worth it. We loved the hospitality and had a great week.
