“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Beautiful house, comfortable bed, fantastic hosts, stunning scenery, ideally situated for visits to Carcassonne, walking in the mountains or for just relaxing by the pool, what more could you wish for?
Maison Laurent is however seriously under-priced.

That was a great experience to stay in the amazing Maison of Anthony and Rachel. Do not hesitate to stay there if you want to visit Carcassonne. The house is simply perfect and allows you to stay away from the crowdie Cite. They both are simply lovely and we have advised everybody to visit them. Do not forget to visit the restaurant just across the street. Great French meals!. Sandra and Edu from Barcelona (Spain)

A top-end Chambres d'hôte in the charming village of Pieusse on the outskirts of Limoux, Maison Laurent offers outstanding accommodation for anyone wishing either to use it as a base to explore the Cathar Castles or simply to escape the demands of the real world in its immediate environs.

Anthony and Rachel are perfect hosts - attentive; knowledgeable and informative; relaxed conversationalists, who are able to create a convivial atmosphere among their guests ; and skilled chefs (happy, also, to cater for my dietary restrictions). We indulged ourselves with an anniversary meal in a 2* Michelin restaurant in Carcassonne one evening. It WAS excellent, but by no means light-years ahead of the quality and creativity of the fare at Maison Laurent. A huge amount of effort goes in to running such an establishment; it is testament to Rachel's and Anthony's organisational prowess and relaxed demeanour that none of the inevitable stresses was ever apparent.

We spent 4 nights in the largest of the 5 rooms. Accessing it would present a challenge to anyone with mobility constraints (3 flights of stairs from the entrance hall), but persevere if you can - the accommodation was first class (with windows opening on to the beautifully sculpted gardens) with a large and beautifully appointed en suite bathroom.

We're not easily impressed or moved to effusive panegyrics, but our all-too-brief sojourn in Maison Laurent was faultless. We shall be returning and (provided you don't book 'our' room when we want to visit!) we're delighted to offer our strongest possible recommendation.

Room Tip: There are no 'bad' rooms! The village of Pieusse is quiet, but a garden-facing room will of...

Having just spent our 5th week in Maison Laurent I can only say that I still enjoy it as much as when I first visited, the day it opened in 2010. It really is a lovely experience and so relaxing. There is still so much to do and see, even walking in the local area of Pieusse and Limoux provides magnificent views and areas of interest. It truly is a magnificent area steeped in history and beauty. The hosts Anthony and Rachel are the best, providing fabulous food, luxurious accommodation, knowledge about the area and so much more........... . It was such fun, just can't wait for our next visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are luxurious.

We have just had a 4 night stay with Anthony and Rachel at Maison Laurent, chosen largely on the basis of other Trip Advisor reviews. We can only endorse all the earlier comments - it was quite simply perfect. Our room was beautifully designed and decorated with an excellent ensuite shower room (particularly lovely toiletries). The entire house is stylish and comfortable. Anthony and Rachel are charming and friendly hosts. We had dinner on one evening which was delicious, particularly the roquefort and chive souffle, a triumph!

We very much hope to visit again, if possible when we can take advantage of the pool and the burgeoning garden. I'm also very tempted by the deluxe rooms - stunning decor and really lavish bathrooms! Annie and David

We visited Maison Laurent for a Valentine Break...we couldn't have chosen better. Anthony and Rachel are perfect hosts and you could not wish for a more comfortable stay. It is important to sample Anthonys cooking as we did on Valentines eve...superb meal and breakfasts, French style, are excellent...nothing is too much trouble. The accommodation is stylish but comfortable and beds allow for a great nights sleep. We have already booked for next March but hope to visit in the summer to sample the pool. Can't wait!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely!
