    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.

Whilst it has taken me a while to write a review of our stay at Chez Maison Bleue this should not suggest it was a bad stay, but quite the contrary. Joe and I still talk of what a real treat it was to stop off at such a beautiful home in such an idyllic location. Joe I were on... more

Management response:

From the moment we arrived in the square on our large motorbike after a long hot journey, Nick and Carolyn made us feel as if their home was our home. Nick rustled up a very tasty supper for us at a moments notice and we were soon refreshed with cold beers, hot showers, good food and a comfortable sleep. Nothing... more

A home away from home. Carolyn and Nick are such gracious and welcoming hosts. Their Villa is wonderful, comfortable and clean. They could not have been more accommodating. The surrounding area is beautiful and following advise from Carolyn, Nick and other locals we took a 5 min drive and jumped into the local lake for a wonderful swim with friends.... more
