Interaction with guests
While we can't be there to welcome you personally, we have the next best thing. The couple that takes care of the house is right nearby. They will greet you, hand over the keys, give you a tour of the house and show you how to operate everything from the chargers to the Satellite TV. In the event of a late arrival, you will be given their contact number and email to make arrangements for them to leave the key. Our caretakers take care taking seriously and treat the house and our guests as if it were their own. If you have any questions at all, they would be happy to assist if asked.

An old house in the very middle of a beautiful village. The place, the Montaigne Noire reservoire, is an amazing place for hiking through forests, fields and lakes. The house is very beautiful and cozy, with a small patio perfect to read and eat .

About the neighborhood
A peaceful village at the foot of the Montagne Noir, located in the heart of Pays Cathare, Cuxac-Cabardes was organized in the ninth century around it's church Sainte-Cecile on the Dure River. The church is an inscribed Historic Monument and retains it's unique tower. In the middle ages, Cuxac-Cabardes had an important fortified castle, and the village endured many battles during the Cathar Wars because of it's central position between Carcassonne, Albi, Lastours and Saissac.

Situated at 509 meters above sea level in the Dure river Valley, it is surrounded by unspoiled countryside at the foot of the Black Mountain.
The town has shops and a playground for children and is near the castles of Lastours, Saissac and Hautpoul.
