“On our way to Carcassonne, we decided to spend a night in the mountains and this house turned out to be amazing for this! It is located just beneath the mountains in a very authentic tiny village. The host was very friendly and thoughtful, which made our experience even better. Since all the grocery shops were closed for the holidays, Michelle provided us some meat and veggies to make a bbq at the terrace. Highly recommended for romantic stay in the mountains!”
Covid-19 - Separate entrance and no contact with host available throughout the year. The gite is set on the ground floor of a 150 year old converted watermill. It borders a river and sits on 2 acres of wooded land. The little village of Puivert is ten minutes walk, known for its Cathar castle and swimming lake. It’s a perfect spot to relax, or to explore this wonderful area, famous for its history and its wine.
“This is a wondeful find! The place was a warm and cosy retreat after days skiing and I recommend 100%. We loved the kind extras like the jam and the homemade cake too. We're already planning when we can return to explore the area more. Thanks for such a warm welcome and for being wondeful hosts!”
This is a bright and clean, newly renovated comfortable studio apartment; we like to think of it as a home from home. There is an ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower, and a fully-equipped kitchen area. Free parking is available in the village square, a 2 minute walk away. Axat is a beautiful village in the foothills of the Pyrenees, with the river Aude running through it. The studio is close to the centre of the village, with amenities such as pharmacy, boulangerie, ATM and bar.
“Very clean space, very good reception and communication, and very nice hosts. It was warm in the apartment, which is grateful when it was cold outside! It had everything you could need to cook something to eat and also in the bathroom. I recommend it for anyone staying in the area.”
