We stayed for 2 nights at Colours with Jan who looked after us and showed us where to visit in the fabulous Cathare area. Lovely breakfast and very comfortable room along with an interesting house in a friendly relaxed French village. Jan is obviously a very artistic person and her recommendations were excellent. Her knowledge of the area allowed us... More

We visited the region for the first time with little idea of what there was to see, The hostess Jan made us very welcome and kitted us out with trip ideas, restaurant recommendations and maps. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and the sunny garden a lovely late afternoon treat after you have taken in the sights. There is easy access... More

This is a perfect spot to stay for a base for Carcassonne and area. Jan is the most helpful person. She understood our interests and was able to direct us to the most interesting areas and sites. Her guidance was most helpful and as she has been to all the sites, she gives you many tips. We loved our large... More

Superb two night stay enjoyed at Colours of Pays Cathare. Jan is the perfect hostess making us very welcome in her beautiful, comfortable French home. Lovely breakfast enjoyed in Jan's sunny garden. Ideally situated, 15 minutes drive to breathtaking Carcassonne.

If what you require is a comfortable bed, peace and tranquillity, great breakfast and local knowledge from a welcoming host - then you really don't need to look anywhere else! Jan's homemade scones were a fabulous addition to the bread and croissants - but this continental breakfast also includes freshly squeezed juice, yoghurts, fresh fruit and a selection of delightful...

I worked at Jan's place for a month and a half this summer, while traveling around France, so I have a behind-the-scene experience, and can honestly say it was one of the best work arrangements anyone can ask for. Jan is very welcoming and friendly and has an incredible place, very close to both Carcassonne and Limoux (if you like... More

We arrived at Jan's refuge in time to sit in the sunshine of her garden. It was so relaxing to escape the urban jungle, and after a few deep breaths while admiring the garden flowers, the welcome solitude made the stress evaporate. We also enjoyed perusing her many art books, and on retiring for the night, I luxuriated in my... More

What a wonderful experience we have just had, staying with Jan in her fascinating French home. Her hospitality was second to none - available and extremely helpful with her local knowledge when required, but otherwise non-intrusive. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable and we were able to relax in her very comfortable sitting room - not to mention the... More

We were staying at Jan's place for 9 nights. It was a great time, thanks to Jan. The house is traditional and really has it’s spirit. It’s also very good located, in the quite village, but close to Carcassone and other interesting places. It’s a great location to explore Languedoc. Our room was stylish, clean and spacious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Jan. She was a mine of information and advice on the area. We visited Carcassone, Lastours, Canal du Midi and Lagrasse etc. We had breakfast in the garden and what an excellent breakfast it was. The room we had was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Far better than staying at an hotel we... More
