On the peaceful village square in the hills south of Carcassonne, our beautifully restored 3 bedroom holiday cottage and bed and breakfast offer stylish, family friendly accommodation. Close to the medieval bastide of Mirepoix for the best market in the region, Carcassonne & Toulouse airports are an easy drive.
The sandy beaches and turquoise blue waters of Lake Montbel are 5kms, kayaks and sailing dinghies for hire. Our French holiday home is cyclist friendly, we have maps to lend and can help plan routes; bike hire available locally. Explore famous Cathar sites, Montsegur and the fairytale citadel of Carcassonne are close. Horse riding, bird watching, “wild” swimming in the river and lakes; tour chateaux and vineyards, shop at the farmers’ markets or take painting classes in Mirepoix. If all this sounds too much, choose a book from the library, pour yourself a glass of something and listen to the sound of the cowbells from the comfy lounger that appears to have your name on it.
The food is fresh and local, its provenance assured, much is grown organically on our potager. Menus reflect the seasons and the sun-drenched flavours of Languedoc washed down with some very nice wines of the Pays d’Oc. Our hens scratch around in the garden at the back providing eggs for your fluffy omelette at breakfast, the kids love to collect them. Let us know if you require gluten or dairy free.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, the food lovely and accommodation of a good standard. The only thing to note is if you have small children that you want to get to bed early the church bells might make getting them to sleep a challenge. We soon relaxed into our holiday and found our 5 year old enjoyed scooting round the square while we ate so bed time … See more

We REALLY enjoyed our stay at your gite. I speak for my wife & my brother who stayed in the cottage section when I say that we enjoyed the three days we spent in the lovely village of Sonnac Sur l'Hers.
Nick's chef skills as well as your hospitality made our stay a most pleasant one. This combined with the peaceful setting of your place made for a restful break in our trip. The hiking trail … See more
