“Tastes of France”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Jan. She was a mine of information and advice on the area. We visited Carcassone, Lastours, Canal du Midi and Lagrasse etc. We had breakfast in the garden and what an excellent breakfast it was.

The room we had was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Far better than staying at an hotel we returned in the evening to talk about our adventures of the day and round it off with a glass or two of excellent wine of the region.

We will certainly be returning and will recommend Jan's traditional village house to our friends.

With my wife we spent 4 nights in this wonderful B&B. Jan is an English lady very very gentle with a wonderful house in this tiny little village only 10 minutes fa from Carcassonne
When we arrived she gave us tons of information about what to do and when to do
Our room was fresh in evening, silent, clean and very big. The towels had been changed every day ...
The breakfast is reach with homemade confiture, with different kind of bread, juocefruit and each day a different homemade cake

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights here at the end of a 2 week vacation in southern France. Jan has a depth of knowledge about the area and is very willing to make suggestions based on your interests. We spent time in Carcassonne and at the Cathar chateaux at Lastours, and took a drive to Leucate on the Mediterranean returning along the Corbieres vineyards route with a brief stop at the medieval village Lagrasse. Our room was large and comfortable and spotlessly clean. And Jan makes the most wonderful buttery croissants and her own jams for breakfast!

My wife and I finished our two week honeymoon in Southern France by staying in this cozy "chambre d'hôte." We spent four nights and used a rental car to tour the Languedoc region. Jan is an excellent host with tons of information on regional sights and restaurants. She prepared breakfast for us every morning and we ate in her garden. The rooms are spacious with large showers and king size beds. It is a relaxed lodging among the countryside.

If you are travelling to this region to see Carcasonne, forget the hotels in and around La Cite, and opt for this charming place. It is within a ten minute drive of the city and lies among the beautful Cathare region.

We were recommended this place by a friend, and I will continue to recommend it to everyone I know visiting this part of France.

What a beautiful location, stunning quaint traditional French house. Breakfast amazing and Host, Jan was just fantastic.Jan is so knowleagble about the area and such a warm lovely person.Room was gorgeous with traditional French bedding -plenty of space with an ensuite. Two beautiful white cats, full of character ,lazed around the pretty garden where we had breakfast each day .Will definately stay here again as it was so close to Carcassonne-train takes just 15 minutes, but surrounded by beautiful scenery and in such a quaint village..

Room Tip: The large double room with ensuite was terrific for a couple

We arrived in Verzeille after a seemingly endless drive across the Pyrenees and along D118. With the surrounding Pays Cathare firmly in darkness, Jan's house radiated warmth and welcome. With all the restaurants and shops in the area long closed for the evening, you can imagine how thrilled we were when our host treated us to a simple late-night dinner of duck confit, home-grown tomatoes, bread and wine. The next morning we woke up to the sun shining into an artfully decorated room and climbed down the stairs to a breakfast set in a garden overflowing with flowers and vegetables. Like no other B&B on our route, Colours of Pays Cathare united an artful, almost magical interior with modern amenities.

Lisa & Andreas.
