Myself and my girlfriend had a wonderful time at Sidsmums, Carcassonne was crazy busy with tourists so we spent 3 days relaxing and cycling around the beautiful countryside. The facilities are excellent and we met some really great people there, it's not your typical youth hostel but I loved the mixture of young travellers and families which created a very... More

Former winehouse in the wine region and surrounded by a patchwork of vineyards, SidsMums makes for a convivial atmosphere in which to meet a variety of different people passing through. Its in a pleasant rural location, good for nipping into Carcassonne, exploring the local area, or resuming onward journeys. Full of local knowledge, easy-going English-speaking hosts were super-friendly which made... More

Peter and Tracy were incredible hosts and extremely hospitable. Sidsmums is situated in a beautiful and unspoilt area and is brilliant if you want to experience a more traditionally French place. Places like this are hard to come by now a days and the situation is made even better by the fact that it is so close to Carcassonne .... More

Tracy and Peter have created a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. We stayed in the gite which was clean and comfortable. The communal areas are spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We travelled as a family including a child and a senior and everyone agreed it was by far the best place we stayed on our trip. Both Tracy... More

I was recommended this place by a previous guest who had recently stayed and said it was fantastic. It did not disappoint. Peter and Tracy are fantastic hosts and extremely hard working and kind people. They went above and beyond in order to make you feel at home and welcome. I stayed in a private room which was clean, comfy,... More

Sidsmums Travelers Retreat is a great place to stay! Tracy and Peter were so nice and welcoming! I have met so many new and interesting people during my stay just in 3 days. I will definitely come back to this place and bring a friend or even two :)!

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Sidsmums for 4 nights in mid-August... we had read the reviews and wanted a place to relax, to do nothing, for the start of our 2 weeks in southern France. This place in this quiet village sounded ideal for us... and so it proved. It's a great place to relax. It's true that Peter... More

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The couple that run the hostel are amazingly committed to looking after each of their guests as individuals, going that extra mile at a level I have never encountered at a hostel before. They are so very friendly and welcoming, and then will help you get the best... More

Great location perfect distance from Carcasonne and surrounded by lovely countryside. Even without a car getting around was no problem with a 1 euro bus and train and Peter and Tracy couldn't have been more helpful giving us lifts to fit around our timetable. Lots to do and see around the area with Carcasonne perfect cycling distance away. Great accomodation... More
