We have just booked our third stay at Chez Maison Bleue after visiting twice in 2013(June and September). The house is perfect, beautifully restored,well equipped, tastefully furnished and very comfortable with toiletries and other goodies provided by Carolyn and Nick. They are a great couple, thoughtful and very helpful. Nick cooks delicious food which you can book in the B&B. (We've stayed in there too and had a fabulous room). The local area is full of interest with lots to do and all of it set in the amazing scenery and stunning countryside. Fabulous markets, wonderful ancient castles and churches, fascinating museums, excellent restaurants, irresistible patisseries, walking (gentle or strenuous), swimming, eggs from Carolyn's chickens, apple juice from the farm next door, concerts with local music, the ancient Cite of Carcassonne, the gentle sound of cow bells on the hillside behind the house, the peaceful square where we sat outside savouring the local Blanquette and Cremant de Limoux (sparkly) in the warm evening sunshine. On our first visit we took our daughter and 4 year old grandson and Carolyn provided some toys and a scooter which was a great hit. The roads are quiet and driving easy and spectacular if you go up into the mountains. I could go on but I guess the only way is to experience it for yourself. Thats why we're gong back again.
