Unfortunately, the first time in 6 years, we recently had a group with a complete lack of respect and common sense for how you leave a property. There are no additional cleaning charges, as we appreciate the house needs cleaning and changing over between guests. All we do ask is that you leave the property as you found it, washing up in kitchen cleared away, etc. A cleaning charge will be taken from the security deposit if necessary.

About the neighborhood
Situated on the edge of a sleepy hamlet in the Razes region of the Languedoc, amongst the last of the vineyards of the region. Nestled just 30 mins from Carcassonne, and its walled Unesco world heritage site, and 15 mins to the beautiful towns of Mirepoix or Limoux. Carcassonne has fantastic shopping with markets on a Wednesday and Saturday, La Cite boasting some fabulous restaurants. Toulouse is just 50 mins away, and Montpellier 1.5 hours. Local markets available almost daily with all the atmosphere and amazing fresh produce. Boulangerie, farm shop, pharmacy and supermarket are all within a 5-10 min drive of the village. Local restaurants and bars are available in the two closest main villages of Belveze and Montreal, both 5km away. With some fabulous local wine domains offering a mor...
Getting around
Major local airports: Carcassonne - 40 mins Toulouse - 1hr20 mins Beziers, Perpignan and Gerona all under 2 hours. Carcassonne and Toulouse have great train links. We do however suggest that guests have a car as we are rural in order to see some of the amazing attractions in this fabulous region. We also have a minivan should any guests need help with transportation, please contact us for more details.
