Come and make yourself at home but just be mindful that this is not a professionally run, rental style accommodation. It is my home and an old, antique house with many original features (floors, stairs, ceilings etc) dating from the 17th century.

Les Ihles is a smalll village in the Montaigne Noire. There is no shop and a car is essential. It was very hot when we were there - the European heatwave and it would have been difficult for any property to cope. It is a large place with three bedrooms

This is "a must to stay" at AirBnB!!!! The house is incredible, completely clean, the peace at the area is awesome, and Craig is a really nice person to help you in whatever you may need, a really nice house to stay more than 4 days!

Craig welcomed us into his beautiful house with his friendly dog and a bottle of good wine, an old house with a lot of charm, we enjoyed the tranquility and spaciousness of the house situated in a small village surrounded by nature and next to a river, with Friendly and welcoming people. Totally recommended.

Craig and Scamps (the sweetest dog ever) welcomed us in their nice house in a very small village. There is so much to check out in the whole area - Carcassone, Grotte de Limousis, Abbaye de Lagrasse.... You definitely need a car to do groceries, go swimming etc. The area is pretty rural, calm and relaxed. A lot of Mountains with ruins of old castles around. The house has its own charme, very special with all the old wood details. The guests have their own wing in the house on the 1st floor (3 bedrooms and one small bathroom). Downstairs is a big shared kitchen and a big livingroom with couches and a TV. You can reach the small garden and terrace from the entrance area. There is a small boule spot close to the house where you can meet with the people from the village - all very kind. We loved the dog, but actually didn´t know about one living there, so fortunately we didn´t had any problems with it.

An amazing stay nearby the beautiful city of Carcassone. Staying in an ancient house with mountain views was incredible. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Nearby there is the Chateau Lastours and the caves of Limousis so you really get the feeling you experience history.
