Chalabre, Aude, Occitanie
In the hills south of Carcassonne, a warm welcome is assured at our beautifully restored 18th century holiday cottage on the peaceful village square. Beside the beautiful old church, we offer a great base for exploring Languedoc and the Midi. A lovely romantic retreat for couples and well equipped for families, we are close to medieval Mirepoix which hosts the best farmer's market in the region on Monday mornings. Explore Cathar castles, prehistoric caves, fields of vineyards and sunflowers; walk or cycle from your door or wild swim in the nearby lakes, what a treat!
We can accommodate up to 6 people, the ground floor double bedroom has a private WC and secret courtyard garden, 2 further bedrooms are at the top of the house, a double and a twin room under the eaves, the children love it.

We stayed 3 nights and could not have been made more welcome or looked after any better. The owners were outstanding hosts, and good cooks too - we had a meal on our first night after a long drive to get there. The area is...More

We had a three night stay here with our three year old daughter. It's a truly charming place to stay with easy access from the airport. Our rooms were adjoining which worked well as we could leave our door open and see our little girl...More

Whilst it has taken me a while to write a review of our stay at Chez Maison Bleue this should not suggest it was a bad stay, but quite the contrary. Joe and I still talk of what a real treat it was to stop...More

About the neighborhood
The Languedoc enjoys exceptionally good summers, the warm temperatures lasting long into the evening fields behind the house are filled with wild flowers, tables and chairs start appearing in the squares and the first bounty of the hedgerows appears. Autumn is usually mild and sunny, we are still having supper on the terrace towards the end of September and lunch in the square in November. A lovely season to explore the region, avoiding the summer crowds - lower prices too.

There is a packed programme of festivals throughout the yerich culture and history. Weekends of jazz, folk and the summer long classical extravaganza in Carcassonne; medieval towns and villages celebrate traditional crafts and produce of the terroir throughout the year, most events are free. Our village is en fete, th...

How to get there
Airport: Carcassonne: 37.3 mi
Railway: Limoux: 17.4 mi
Ferry: Bilbao: 303.2 mi
Carcassonne (Ryanair) is the nearest airport to our holiday cottage; an easy 50mins drive along roads that are quiet even in August. Toulouse (Easyjet) and Perpignan (Flybe) are just a bit further, around 1.5 hours. The nearest train station is Limoux (28km) and motorway junction, Bram (37km). Choice of car hire companies at all airports. A car is essential if you wish to explore beyond the hills surrounding Sonnac Sur L'Hers, however, if you are content simply to wander from the house each day, it may be possible to arrange transfers from the airport. For those enjoying a more leisurely sojourn, we are a comfortable day’s drive from St Malo, avoiding the Paris peripheric, 2hrs from Andorra (110km) and 3hrs from Barcelona.
