    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    In the hills south of Carcassonne, beautifully restored 18th century holiday cottage on the village square beside the lovely old church. A great base for couples & families - walking & cycling from the back door, wild swimming, ruined Cathar castles, farmers markets and ancient towns & villages of this still very French and relatively undiscovered region of Languedoc.
    We offer family and cyclist friendly accommodation, 3 stylishly appointed bedrooms, 2 doubles and 1 twin. Bedrooms are on the ground floor and 2nd floor so lots of privacy for friends and families.
    The ground floor double room with private WC opens onto a secret courtyard garden with an olive and fig tree - just big enough for a table for two. Dine on the private roof terrace to the sound of the cow bells. There...

Our house is over 200 years old and has been carefully restored into comfortable, stylish accommodation that retains its long French history and character. We can offer you more than a glimpse of French culture in the 'real' south of France.

    For an intimate family gathering, reunion or hen party, we can accommodate up to 14 people in the cottage & B&B. Please enquire about inclusive rates, drinks on the terrace are complementary for larger groups.

    How to get there
    Airport: Carcassonne: 37.3 mi
    Railway: Limoux: 17.4 mi
    Ferry: Bilbao: 303.2 mi
    Carcassonne (Ryanair) is the nearest airport to our holiday cottage; an easy 50mins drive along roads that are quiet even in August. Toulouse (Easyjet) and Perpignan (Flybe) are just a bit further, around 1.5 hours. The nearest train station is Limoux (28km) and motorway junction, Bram (37km). Choice of car hire companies at all airports. A car is essential if you wish to explore beyond the hills surrounding Sonnac Sur L'Hers, however, if you are content simply to wander from the house each day, it may be possible to arrange transfers from the airport. For those enjoying a more leisurely sojourn, we are a comfortable day’s drive from St Malo, avoiding the Paris peripheric, 2hrs from Andorra (110km) and 3hrs from Barcelona.

My husband and I have just had a truly wonderful 12 night stay at Chez Maison Bleue. Carolyn and Nick's hospitality was second to none. We were absolutely spoiled rotten during our stay. We have never ever been so well looked after in our 40 years of travelling. The accommodation, the ambience and the location was superb. Nick's cooking was... more

If it's peace and tranquility you're after, Chez Maison Bleue doesn't disappoint. But it doesn't stop there. From the peaceful rolling hills south of Carcasonne, to the warm and welcoming smiles of the owners Carolyn and Nick, its everything you ever wanted as a home from home. Chez Maison Bleue is situated in the prettiest town square I've ever seen... more

We were in the area for a wedding and Chez Maison Bleue turned out to be an unexpected highlight. Nick's cooking was the best we have had in France for a long time and he's an Englishman! Helped of course by eggs from his own hens, fruit picked straight from the trees and veg from his potager. For our second... more
