“NEW!!! THE ART GALLERY!!!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

At Chez Dyna they have transformed the old forge into a lovely little art gallery which displays a range of art work from local artists. A wide price range means that ther is something for everyone.
Lovely to visit and a really good addition not only to Chez Dyna but also to the village of Alaigne which already boasts a baker, post office, bar and shop!!!

We stayed in "the cottage" and found it absolutely perfect for two. It has been decorated and refurbished very tastefully with everything required for a relaxing break. Although self-catering there is also the option of dining at the B&B. We enjoyed a lovely meal there on our first night that was very welcome after our journey. There is also a friendly bar/restaurant across the road that serves meals most evenings. The village is very quiet and peaceful situated in lovely countryside. The location is ideal for exploring the area and we visited all the places we had planned including Carcassonne and a memorable climb up to the Cathar site of Montsegur! Geoff and Lin were very helpful and welcoming and certainly added to the relaxing stay that we enjoyed. We were most impressed with "la forgerie", the new art gallery that they have recently opened adjoining the property. There is some amazing work by local artists on display plus wonderful vintage pieces. It's certainly worth a look and you can purchase a lovely gift for yourself or take back something original for friends/relatives. All in all Geoff and Lin have a great choice of accommodation at Chez Dyna that we would definitely recommend to others.

We stayed with friends and family for three nights at this perfect little hotel. It is run with utmost care by its owners, offering a personalized service with a smile.
The rooms are cosy and spacious, making one feel more at home than a hotel room.
Take the breakfast after 9am at the little garden, so you may enjoy a deliciously baked croissant to start the day.
Many castles close by are waiting to be discovered, as well as the different wine cellars, which offer good wine at a great price.
Check out as well the old, nearly restored cars at Chez Dyna's garage, most interesting to see. As well take a minute to visit the art gallery just next door, where local artists offer their work

We stayed in the Gite, a kitchen/diner/lounge downstairs and a large double room upstairs with en-suite bathroom.

The Gite was very clean, and had everything that we needed, including DVD player and washing machine. Wifi access was useful, and you can park right by the front door. We enjoyed sitting in the peaceful B&B garden.

It's in a lovely quiet village, surrounded by picturesque countryside. When we visited the fields were full of sunflowers or vines. There is a lovely small bakery in the village which had a range of fresh bread and pastries every morning - we had some for breakfast each morning.

Great location to explore this area of France, we enjoyed the jousting at Carcassonne old city and many lakes in which you can swim.

Geoff & Lynn were very helpful and provided details of local restaurants etc. Lots of local restaurants served great pizza, however the one over the road from the accommodation "La Galloise" which was run by a friendly welsh couple but the food was not great. First time the food was what you'd expect for the price, but the second time we went we were bitterly disappointed with the steaks - overcooked, gristly and tough meat.

We did part B&B and part in the Old Forge gite. The B&B room was gorgeous and the breakfast excellent with lots of choice and all tastes catered for. We even had eggs from Lynn's chickens. The hospitality from Geoff and Lynn was second to none and we left feeling like friends rather than clients. The house was wonderfully old with lots of sympathetic restoration and original features. The Old Forge was modern and tastefully decorated. Very comfortable and well equipped. We had a lovely holiday in this lovely village and we were invited to the annual village meal on the Sunday and had a great time chatting, eating and drinking with French and English residents of the village. I would certainly recommend Chez Dyna and Geoff and Lynn.

The accommodation was all very nice and well done but what was really fantastic was the hospitality extended by Geoff & Lynn. They looked after us extremely well, to the extent of driving us to a wedding on Saturday afternoon in the absence of being able to secure a taxi and refused any kind of payment, helping with the organising of baby sitting etc etc. We felt more like welcome firends in their house than paying guests. Could not recommend it too highly.

We were really well looked after by Geoff and Lynne while we stayed in L'ancienne forge. Geoff was always happy to give us advice on what to see in the area and offered us some maps and DVDs to help us learn more about the history. The accommodation was immaculate with convenient parking and close to all local amenities. We would be very happy to recommend them.
Thanks to you both.
