We stayed for 2 nights at Ecuries de Sainte-Croix and loved it. Rustic and rural and very easy to find once you have found the main gate to the old City. Finding the main gate however can be a bit of a challenge, but once you have it's a doddle.
We left the car at the B&B and had a lovely walk (about 2km max) to the old city through the vineyards. This also saved around 20 euros in daily parking charges in the car parks by the main gate. We only used the car to head back to Carcassone in the evening for for a meal.
Our room was of a good size, clean and perfectly adequate for our stay. Breakfast in Madame Huck's house was a hearty one of homemade jams and fresh croissants/bread, cereals, cold meats, cheeses and lovely fresh coffee.
We would disagree with the comments for a need to speak French. Madame Huck's English is better than my basic French and although neither of us were anywhere near fluent we were able to converse perfectly well enough. All part of the enjoyment and adventure. Madame Huck also gave us ideas of other places to visit and even lent us some of her own guide books during our stay. On leaving she recommended we visited Minerve on the next stage of our French tour. What a gem. Thankyou!
