This is definitely the place to come if you're looking for a self-catering holiday that combines luxury with practicality in a beautiful location. A delightful hostess who welcomes you in person at the airport if you wish and provides all the little touches that mean so much.Everything from an extensive basket of French goodies and a fridge with eggs, juice,cheese,...

This is a little overdue--like 2 years my apologies. My husband and I stayed here whilst on our 3 week Honeymoon to France back in September of 2013. The gite was gorgeous. It was nice to stay and be able to cook, do laundry and regroup before moving on east into France. La Cite is a bit touristy but I... More

My husband and I stayed at the gites in May with family and friends and we had the most amazing week. It started with Christiane picking us up from the train station and kindly sharing with us information about Carcassonne and the local area, including the best places to eat and visit. Even though our French was quite basic Christiane... More

We stayed in Mipadre at the start of June, in unusually hot weather, and had an amazing holiday there. The accommodation was wonderful, and Christiane had provided all sorts of lovely breakfast things and fruit for our arrival. The real highlight, however, was the garden. It has what must be one of the best views in Europe! We sat outside... More

A friend of mine was getting married in Carcassone so us bridesmaids stayed in one of the Gites Sous Les Coutines, and some of her family in another. The gites are very well located (approx. 10 minutes walk to the castle) and in beautiful gardens with an unbelievable view directly up to the castle. They were both clean, good sized... More

We stayed at Mipadre at the end of September, 2014. This is an absolute gem of a place. Right under the walls of the cite, with a wonderful terraced private garden. Christiane met us at the appointed time and gave us all kinds of tips and maps for visiting Carcassonne and the surrounding area. She also provided enough food to... More

We stayed in Le Grand Cannissou, the larger of the two apartment, with friends for a music festival taking place in La Cite. It was the ideal location, right between the two towns and just a lovely place to be - lounging in the beautiful gardens by day, dancing in the castle by night. Christiane is a charming hostess with... More

I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Carcassonne. Nestled against the walls of La Cite, these gites and their gardens are beautiful. We stayed in Le Grand Cannissou, the slightly bigger of the two, which provided plenty of space for our family of 4. Christiane could not be more hospitable. An added bonus was the free breakfasts, tea,... More

We stayed at Le Grand Canissou in Sept 2013 and would definitely recommend this Gite as a really lovely place to stay. It actually exceeded our expectations, Very French and amazing views of the castle, as well as being a short (but steep!) walk up to the old town. The owner Christiane was so nice and collected us from the... More
