We stayed at Le Grand Canissou in Sept 2013 and would definitely recommend this Gite as a really lovely place to stay. It actually exceeded our expectations, Very French and amazing views of the castle, as well as being a short (but steep!) walk up to the old town. The owner Christiane was so nice and collected us from the... More

We stayed in Mipadre at the beginning of the month - it really is in a beautiful location, it is so comfortable and well fitted out, the gardens are amazing - Christiane is so helpful and gave us excellent advice about where to go to eat, to shop, the markets, and she left us everything needed to ensure breakfast was...

We stayed in Le Grand Canissou, which has it's own private garden as well as access to the large communal garden. Everything in the gite was very stylish, comfortable and beautifully furnished. At night, the old town walls are floodlit and can be viewed from the gite. Madame Clotis, the owner, was an absolute gem. She collected us from the... More

My folks and I had the absolute pleasure of staying here mid-june for four nights this year. We were met at the airport by Christiane and whisked back to the gite via the newer part of Carcassonne to get our bearings. Our host then showed us the house, the garden and then left us to our own devices. We stayed... More

I had read the fantastic reviews and it was still even better than expected. Christiane is so friendly and efficient in taking the booking. Then she met us at the airport and took a brief drive through the town so that we got our bearings. Back at the gite (Mipadre) she showed us around so that we understood everything, and... More

So much has been said already about this beautiful gite that it's hard to improve upon previous reviews. Immaculately laid out, amazing location and to top it all the nicest and most welcoming host you could meet. Christiane is so kind and caring, she gives a truly wonderful service and both she and her husband Jean do all they can... More

We recently stayed in gite Mipadre and had a wonderful time. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, enough food for several breakfasts, and much information about Carcassonne and the areas nearby. Christiane even helped us make reservations for dinner in le Cite. We would love to return someday, definitely for a longer time to enjoy the gite and... More

We stayed at Gites Sous les Courtines last May for a week - the weather was changeable but the gite was superb. Christiane was so hospitable, so helpful, we felt we were her personal guests and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was very spacious and comfortable; a food basket and lots of little extras in the kitchen and... More

My family and I have just had 3 nights at Christiane's gite 'Canissou', and we were sad to leave. This is superb accomodation with an enviable location. Not only is the gite perfect, the garden is wonderful and steps up the hillside providing the most incredible views of Carcassonne. It cost a little more than some of the other options... More
