Chez Providence Chambres et Table d'Hotes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 31, 2011

Chez Providence is all you might hope for when looking for a relaxing and I must say, a romantic setting, for a weeks getaway to the Black mountains of southern France.Just a short drive from Carcassonne , Chez Providence is set in a quiet but charming village. The house itself dates from the15th century, but it has been lovingly and authentically restored and our room in the cellar was all you could ask for in terms of ambiance, old world charm and comfort. Cristina, the Maitre D' was an exceptionally affable host to us and a fine chef ta boot! For those seeking a quiet romantic break in the mountains, this is the house for you.

Agree with all of the very positive comments. Lovely room (which is usually hired out as a gite but we had it for a couple of nights B&B in order to visit Carcassonne which is about 40 mins). Great breakfast & we also took advantage of the evening meal option. But our experience was somewhat marred by the fact we were there on the weekend of the village fete 13 to 15 August & as such were kept awake on the first night by the thudding sound of the extremely loud outdoor disco that began at about 11.00pm & went on until 4.30am right outside our door (the back of the house overlooked the stage). The 2nd night was slightly better as the village had their big sit down meal which was good to see & we were also able to watch the cabaret - but again the band went on until 3.30am! Great if you want to join in - but not so good if you are travelling with kids & have to drive the next day. A shame as its a lovely spot & owners very friendly & helpful.

It's impossible to fault Chez Providence. Christina and Nico are wonderful hosts, and had really thought of everything. They provide an excellent breakfast, and offer very reasonably priced (and completely delicious) food in the evening, on request. On our last night we asked to eat on the terrace, and it was one of the high points of our holiday travelling across the South of France. We stayed in the Rose room which was beautiful and very private. The local people are incredibly warm, and always stopped to say hello. We used the accommodation to explore the mountains and lakes, and to visit local historical sites. A wonderful place, and I'm sure we may return one day.

You couldn't wish to have more amiable hosts. Booking was easy and a warm welcome to a beautifully restored village house awaits. We stayed in the 'Chinese' room which was large and very comfortable. The owners are rightly proud of the work they have done to make this a relaxing stay. We decided to eat at the house on a couple of evenings and enjoyed sitting on the terrace to the setting sun while eating the lovely fresh food that had been growing in the owners' garden that morning and sipping the local wine. This is truly a value for money stay in a beautiful and little known area of France and the owners are happy to help you find your way around with suggestions for days out on the lakes,or the Canal, mountain,vineyard , beach or Cathar Castle. We hope to return soon!

Room Tip: The rooms are all comfortable and roomy.

One of the best kept secrets of the area, this little guest house allows perfect relaxation in very pretty surroundings. The wonderful welcome from Christina and Nico makes you feel like one of the family, and nothing is too much trouble. Don't bother booking dinner out each evening. Christina's food is great and fantastic value for money. Having said that, there are some lovely restaraunts a short drive away and a hotel/cafe/bar in the village so you'll be spoilt for choice! Our room was lovely and was quiet at night time, apart from the bells ringing the hours, which didn't disturb us at all. The village is pretty, peaceful and friendly. We found that people spoke to us in the street - not something you find often! We would go back tomorrow if we could and will certainly aim to have a return visit in the very near future. Go there!!

I took my wife on a surprise long weekend break I could not have chosen better. We stayed in the Chamber de la Rose my wife loved it was cosy and relaxing with a comfortable bed and linen a seating area with tea & coffee, and the en-suite shower room had a luxury hydro shower very indulgent.
We eat on the first night Christina loves to cook and it shows the meringue roulade was to die for!
The area is full of surprises, beautiful scenery with plenty of walks, and ruined Cathare castles we decide to eat at Chez Providence each night so we could drink as much of the Cabardes (local) wine as we wanted!
Thank you Christina & Nico we had a good break, we hope to see you again!!!
