“What a truly fantastic family holiday we have just come home from (two adults and two children age 7 and 5). Our stay with Chris, Brigette and Rio has been one the best holidays we’ve had. We have so much love for this place, I’m usually ready for home towards the end of a holiday, regardless of how much of a great time we’re having, but this is the first time we’ve had tears when leaving a holiday! Chris and Brigette’s company is a delight, we had such a warm welcome, which continued throughout our stay. We really felt part of the family, one of our favourite nights was a bbq which Chris and Brigette hosted and kindly invited us to! Everything about the place, the accommodation, the pool, the location, the locals, is just perfect. Full of scenic charm and a real sense of escaping with a relaxing atmosphere. Of course the real love story from the holiday is Rio the dog. We all had a heavy heart waving bye to Rio. Chris and Brigette are exactly what makes Airbnb special. We’ve definitely found a gem. See you next year Rio!”
En Croustet is an old farmhouse which has kept it's traditional look while preparing a greener future, solar panels for electricity and hot water and a wood burning boiler. Our natural swimming pool is an integral part of the garden. Situated in the foot hills of the "Montain Noire", facing south with the Pyrénées on the horizon, the large garden has barbecues, swings and a pond with fisfes and tadpoles. In between the two airports of Carcassonne(30Km) and Toulouse(50Km), it's an ideal base for visiting the Pays Cathar. This relaxing country location is an ideal center for walking, cycling or visiting places like Castelnaudary for the cassoulet, Carcassonne for the magnificent medieval city, and lake St.Ferreol source of the canal du midi and a summer time favorite for picnics and water sports. We have two gites, the "Mésanges" that can accommodate four people. And the "Loriots" accommodates for six people. They are both bright functional flats that we are sure will help you have a good break in this wonderful region
“Brigitte and Chris are lovely people. We felt very welcome from the beginning. My wife and I and two kids if 5 stayed for 12 nights and see really enjoyed the spacious apartment. The house is an old farmhouse so it stays quite fresh inside but it's a bit dark inside. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for cooking or baking. The garden is big and lovely. The kids loved feeding the chicken and playing with the lovely dog (which was the friendliest dog I've ever met) and swimming in the natural pool. The house is quite isolated in the countryside. A car is rather mandatory. The next small épicerie is a five minute drive and the next supermarket is 10-15 minutes by car. But if you love the rural quietness and enjoy the company of lovely people the house is just about what you need. We even had a barbecue night with the neighbours which was very lovely. The carcassonne castle is a must and Toulouse is quite close. We also drive to the beach once and there's a lake for swimming and a national park with hiking trails close. In Castelnaudary you can also rent bikes or go on a boat ride in the canal midi and be sure not to miss the restaurant la belle epoque. It's brilliant. All in all it was a wonderful stay and we'd always come back.”

“A very beautiful place, beautiful garden and traditional house of the region, large, comfortable, neat and refined decoration. Exceptional welcome and touches of attention that make you happy when you arrive on a long trip: Santa Claus in the fireplace, madeleines for breakfast. All this three minutes from the center of Castelnaudary! There is also a sofa outside for the summer aperitifs (but that will be when I come back!) Hélène and her husband did not hesitate to go out of their way to pick me up. We would never stop singing their praises! The value for money is exceptional. Thanks again for everything!”
