The space

En Croustet is an old farmhouse which has kept it's traditional look while preparing a greener future, solar panels for electricity and hot water and a wood burning boiler.
Our natural swimming pool is an integral part of the garden all year round .
Situated in the foot hills of the "Montain Noire", facing south with the Pyrénées on the horizon, the large garden has barbecues, swings and a pond with fish and tadpoles.
In between the two airports of Carcassonne(30Km) and Toulouse(50Km), it's an ideal base for visiting the Pays Cathar.
This relaxing country location is an ideal center for walking, cycling or visiting places like Castelnaudary for the cassoulet, Carcassonne for the magnificent medieval city, and lake St.Ferreol source of the canal du midi and a summer time favorite for picnics and water sports.
We have two gites, the "Mésanges" that can accommodate four people.
And the "Loriots" accommodates for six people. They are both bright functional flats that we are sure will help you have a good break in this wonderful region

What a wonderful place to stay! Our hosts were very kind and friendly, and generously gave us herbs and olive oil to use. The natural pool was very welcome after a long hot day travelling, and the house was cool and comfortable. Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

Chris and Brigitte are the uncle and aunt you wish you had, who just so happen to live in the spectacular countryside of Southern France. They are generous with their time, wise, and very helpful to travelers! We changed our plans at their suggestion and saw things we wouldn't have otherwise. We also fell in love with their border collie (who we let sleep with us, which helped quell our longing for our dogs back in the States), their cats, the horses across the street...this is the classic airbnb experience, where you pop into someone's world and meet new friends. Chris and Brigitte, visit us in the States whenever you'd like!

My partner and I spent 1 week in En Croustet with our 2 dogs. We had a beatiful and relaxing time enjoying the cozy house, the natural pool and the beautiful garden. Above all, we loved the peace and quiet of this lovely place which is even better than the photos. Also, a very special thanks to Chris and Brigitte, and their sweet dog Rio, for making us feel so welcome and as if we were part of their family.

Chris and Isabel are fantastic hosts. Wish we would come back again and stay longer. We felt very comfortable during all our stay in En Croustet. If you want to enjoy beautiful surroundings of South France this is just a right place to stay

As many reviews have noted Chris and Brigitte were wonderful and generous hosts. Their farmhouse is quaint and would suit a family but as we were 2 couples we were a little disappointed that the 2nd double bed was in the lounge room and next to the only bathroom, making privacy impossible.
