We opened in 2002 and were the first B&B here. Some said why here but when you look out of your bedroom window or sit on our terrace in the morning eating your breakfast during the summer months you will know why, it really is quite magical. Our guests obviously agree because not only have we won the Tripadvisor “Certificate of Excellence” for many years but have also consistently won the Booking.com “Award of Excellence”.
Our house sits in a two acre garden. The garden and house is enclosed by fencing on two sides with the river Aude borders the other two. Ideal if you fancy trying your hand at trout fishing. There is ample secure parking for cars (and motorcycles) within the garden and entrance to the house and garden is via a set of electric gates.
We operate as a traditional French Chambres D’hôtes which means Room of Hosts in English. Basically we are a private house that rents out rooms. This goes back to the days when the farmer’s wife used to rent out a room for a bit of extra money or some manual help for her husband. During your stay you are treated like a family member rather than a hotel guest. We don’t have a farm so there is no manual labour, just pay and enjoy the peace and quiet.
We like this system because it is friendly and not formal. We give you a complete set of keys so you can come and go as you please. Eating is a communal activity, we basically share our meals with you and we all sit at the same table. Not only is it informal but it is a great opportunity to interact with the other guests and swap ideas of what to do and see.
Better still we are located inside a UNESCO site of outstanding natural beauty so very little ever changes here. This is because we are at the entrance to the Pierre-Lys gorge which forms one of the natural routes through the Pyrenees.
The river Aude is used for water sports, primarily rafting and hydro speed (that’s a one metre board that you lay on to come down the river). It is also well known for its trout fishing.
