    Property description
    Guest Room – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    In an enviable position on the little village square, parquet floors, old fireplaces, winding staircases, shuttered windows, all the character you would expect from an old, rambling French country home. Super comfy beds, antique furnishings, private bathroom facilities, hairdryer, bath products, magazines and bottled water in all rooms. Breakfast (from 6 euros) is served on the terrace to the sound of cowbells or in the square by the church, the eggs are from our hens that scratch around at the back. An easy drive from Carcassonne and Toulouse airports, Perpignan & Montpelier just a bit further, beautiful medieval Mirepoix, 14km, has the best weekly market in the region.
