Le Bonheur is a quaint, rustic house in a very old village. The housekeeper speaks only French (as do most people in the region) but is absolutely lovely and nothing is too much trouble. There are no shops or anything in the village but the nearest small town is only a 5 min car drive away and Carcasonne is just 15 minutes. All the surrounding towns and villages are interesting to visit and there are plenty of large supermarkets within reasonable travelling distance.
The house is a great base with a little sitting out area coming off the kitchen which is great for eating out in the evening. more
