We had a fantastic few days staying at Maison Laurent and took full advantage of the beautiful garden and hospitality offered by Rachel and Anthony. Our room was lovely with a spacious bathroom and a huge free standing bath. Breakfast was great, we signed up for the evening meal for 2 of the nights we were there, dinner was excellent (Anthony kindly gave us the recipe for the lemon parfait dessert that we enjoyed on our first night which was delicious and has now been added to our dinner party repertoire), as was the extensive choice of local wine available available to buy at reasonable prices - and it was interesting to dine with other guests together with Rachel and Anthony.
The local area is scenic, having already visited Carcassonne, we went to see some of the cathar castles in the vicinity (Lastours is definitely worth the climb) and also hired bikes to cycle along the Canal du Midi which was fun but exhausting after 4 hours!
We've already recommended highly to friends and family - many thanks Rachel & Anthony!
