Romantic rooftop retreat for 2 near Carcassonne. “Na Indra” is one of the three gîtes of "Les Bergeries du Cabardès", the dream home of Sue and Louis, an Anglo-Corsican couple. Weathered stones, old beams, an award-winning garden conceived with flair, and accommodation designed and executed with taste and originality conspire to charm our guests so much that they often say “You’ve created a little corner of paradise”. We were so lucky to have found the essential ingredients for this creation, and in such a marvelous but relatively little known area of southern France. Take any direction and you’ll find beautiful landscapes,... all different, all un-spoilt, and a seemingly limitless number of sights to suit all ages and interests. Our attention to detail and quality; our warm, informative, but discreet welcome; and the fact that our other two gîtes are designed for just 2 and for 4 guests, make for a superlatively relaxing stay in enchanting surroundings. ¨Na Indra" (named after Sue’s first boat) is the ultimate romantic hideaway. Tucked under the beams is an impressively original interior in which Sue was inspired by her many years living on boats to create a lovely open-plan loft in which every inch of space is used to its full potential. Only the WC is not open-plan, but the corner bath is, in fact it’s the “pièce de résistance”, especially seductive at night when lit by candles. Champagne glasses are provided for enjoying a glass of local bubbly (from Limoux) when in the bath, or on the panoramic roof terrace which is the equivalent of another room, but under the stars. Guests are invited to use the lovely shared pool and sundeck in the Mediterranean-style garden. The location is ideal for exploring Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi (both UNESCO World Heritage sites), Cathar castles, innumerable vineyards, historic cities (Toulouse, Narbonne, Perpignan), centuries-old abbeys steeped in history. Right on the doorstep we have excellent walking & cycling routes. Great day-trips can be enjoyed to the sea or the mountains. And the ambience in our quaint village is so quintessentially French: you can amble along to the bakery for morning croissants, drop into the café-restaurant for a drink or a meal, watch the old, and the younger, folk play boules on the square. Meanwhile, just down the road we have a Michelin-starred restaurant with an up-and coming young chef.Read more

Additional Location Information
Traditional French village in an ideal sunny location facing the Pyrenees and only 10-15 minutes easy drive to Carcassonne: easy because there are no narrow winding roads to negotiate on the way. So we have country peace but can access supermarkets quicker than many city residents. In the centre of the village (just a few minutes' walk from us) we have a first class bakery/patissery and a grocery where you find not only friendly faces but also an amazing range of products: no need to go to an anonymous supermarket for balsamic vinegar and so on. We also have a bar-restaurant and a post office. No need either to take the car if you want to enjoy beautiful country walks and cycle rides: they're on the doorstep. Carcassonne airport and train stations are only 10-15 minutes' drive, as is the motorway exit, so our location is truly convenient. We're just a few kilometres from the Canal du Midi, and from the book and arts village of Montolieu. Michelin-starred restaurant nearby. Lakes, forests, castles, caves, wine cellars, museums... and much else all reachable by car, essential for the enjoyment of your holiday. Car rental at the airport or in town. Private parking.
