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

Breakfast was... 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

Sidmums is nothing like I've stayed at before! After a long train trip with a heavy backpack weighing me down, how lovely it was to be picked up from the station by Tracy and to then be offered a beer on arrival by Peter. This couple knows how to treat their guests well! The cabins are very clean and comfortable... More

Tracey and Peter - thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful retreat weekend. The location was superb and as described - remote with good transport connections. Picking us up and greeting us with a beer was first class. The bike loan was much appreciated as were the spotless bathrooms and kitchen. Your company was very welcome and the atmosphere... More

An overnight stay before flying home. As usual, a wonderful welcoming atmosphere, from our hosts, Peter and Tracy, and Fergus. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed, very comfy, giving me one of the best night's rest of my trip. It's a great place to relax. Wish I could have stayed longer. Will do next time.

As is known, one should be economical and careful with the use of superlatives. Be that as it may, in writing a review of Sidsmums, I’d preferably bandy them about. It is hardly likely to find a heartier, more affectionately arranged and neater accommodation around Carcassonne. Quite rightly, the guests feel comfortably like in a second home! I can’t wait...

I was biking through France when a robber stole my bike. After a desperate six hour Internet search (All of Toulouse was packed solid), I found this place. We could say it turned out to be the dawn after a quick but cold night. I now consider it my favorite hostel in all or Europe. If you are looking to... More
