“A great stay.”

A spacious period cottage with a warm fire for wi yer and a large garden for summer. Lovely surroundings. An easy drive to Carcassonne, which is reputedly one of the most visited places in France.

“Comfortable and enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 20 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The two of us, and two friends of ours had s very enjoyable week based at the cottage and exploring the local area. The cottage itself is comfortable and well-equipped. The kitchen had all the utensils needed to cook a range of meals. The patio was a great place to relax with a glass of wine and nibbles sourced from the local market. We were lucky enough to be there when the fig tree had an abundance of ripe fruit.

It is also a great spot from which to explore the local area. There is a wonderful market brimming with fresh local produce (on Sundays and Thursdays) and cafes in the nearby town of Esperaza which is walkable to, some fantastic walks through the vineyards and small villages, wineries to sample the local produces and delicious cafes and restaurants. Slightly further afield is the medieval city of Carcasonne - well worth a visit.

All in all we had a fantastic week, and the Railway Cottage was perfect as a place to stay.

“tranquil, peaceful and a beautiful place for a holiday.”
Reviewed 30 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Situated next to a railway line which in no way detracts, rather adds to its quirkiness and tranquility. an occasional passing of the single carriage train (1 euro fare to Carcassonne) at irregular times is a pleasant interval whilst sitting either in the secluded garden or at the al fresco dining with a chilled white and a bowl of local olives. The garden extends way back from the fig tree to the plum trees and the hammock and is entirely surrounded by a tall hedge for privacy. The cottage itself is spotlessly clean and maintained by a lovely local couple. Clean linen and towels are provided, all the white goods work well and a supply of comestibles is left and added to by the occupants (including ourselves, Pastis, breadflour, canned goods and wine we couldn't fit in the cars for our return trip). The cottage is a little out of town and you will need transport but it is a marvelous base for reaching out into the foothills of the Pyrenees. Rennes les Chateau is a few minutes drive away and can be seen from the garden, a fascinating place. Alet les Bains is about 6 k towards Limoux and is an unspoilt medieval village with half timbered homes and a pleasing lack of tourist tut. Limoux centre ville is a lovely square with a choice of eating or cafe seating/people watching. Carcassonne is a 25 minute drive and contains all the jousting tourist could want, busy and understandably famous. The service provided by Fabien and Ben is outstanding and a fine example for other owners to follow, thanks, thanks and thanks again for allowing us to use your home. A wonderful holiday and we would love to go again.
