A little studio at the back of the house. Everything we needed was available. Parking is as described; with a steep and difficult driveway we couldn’t get our car out without some assistance from Martin! He has some chickens and a cat for the animal lovers. Bed is on the harder side, so if you’re a side sleeper like me you might get a little sore! There are also many electric little sounds (from fridge etc. ) at night. But overall a good place for respite from the days activities! Thanks Martin!

The stay was comfortable and the kitchen is equipped. It is set in the lovely countryside with a view of the Pyrénées. No wifi but you can have access nearer to the host's house.

Great restaurant in the next village and close enough to to Carcassonne without paying Carcassonne prices. Basic clean with some nice touches such as table and chairs in the garden with night lights to eat outside. Parking great.

Staying with Martin and René is a real pleasure. The bungalow is in the middle of apple and cherry trees, and we were welcomed with some eggs of the chickens and a very good home made bread. And that's not all. Martin and René opened up there house to have a jam-session and BBQ evening for us and our fellow musiciens , that followed the yearly workshop of Gael Horrelou, the very known Jazz saxophonist of Cuxac Carbades . We had lovely conversations and we all hope to see Martin and René next year. Thank you both, Johanna and Alain

This place is spacious and well furnished with anything you might need such as dishes, towels, and blankets. The hosts were welcoming and informative of the local area, they were generous to give us eggs from their hens. In addition you can rent a bike or for a small fee can get your laundry done. The area is quiet with great views of the surrounding farmland and vineyards, we even saw wildlife when driving around. Each evening we could smell the fragrance of their garden lavender. For history buffs be sure to check out the Medieval city in Carcassonne about a half hour drive away! The only thing we suggest is that you rent a car when you stay here.
