Experience the real France. Large sixteenth century house, small sunny and secluded garden, barn. Modern bathrooms and a very high comfort rating with guests e.g. "Best equipped house I have ever stayed in." (August, 2016). Great village with shops, a cafe. Excellent for visiting the Mediterranean beaches, Carcassonne, the Pyrenees, and the Minervois vineyards. Nearest airports Carcassonne (15 mins) and Toulouse (1h 20). Good reviews: "Feels more lent than rented", "I'll be back!".
No smoking and no pets as the house has just been refurbished.

I am an academic who used to work for the BBC. I live in the centre of London, near London Bridge, but also have a sixteenth century house in France which I would like to invite you to share with me via airbnb!
The house is in the medieval village where the first sparkling wine in the world was invented (in 1531). The recipe was then taken to the Champagne region of France. 'Blanquette de Limoux' is still made and enjoyed in the area (the Aude region of France). It's a very special place, and on the old pilgrim's route to Santiago de Compostella.
I love travelling; I travel as much as I can, all over the world, or as much as time and budget will allow. I have been an airbnb host for several years now and worked in social media myself from 1997 onwards (the early days). I now research into new forms of public service media, and manage a university department. When I can, I spend time at my house in France. I hope you enjoy it too.
