We are a beautiful, rural area with vines and national park peaceful with no other houses close to the Domaine
We are a rural location a car is required - we have bikes on site for our guests to use but no public transport is near.
Jilly was a great host, and made our short stay most relaxing. A lovely cottage in a quiet rural setting, a superb break from all the crowds in Carcassonne. Jilly offered lots of good advice and made a wonderful breakfast - we would recommend this spot in France to everyone!
Jilly nous a très bien accueillis, malgré notre arrivée tardive. L'appartement correspond exactement à la description, il est bien équipé.
Les enfants ont apprécié les animaux, notamment la découverte des émeus, et le grand jardin avec plein de jeux pour les petits (trampoline, balançoire, piscine, panier de basket, voitures à pédales...)
Les petits-déjeuners sont copieux pour démarrer la journée.
L'endroit est calme et à proximité de la fabuleuse cité de Carcassonne.
This place was amazing! It's location is perfect for families and anyone who wants to be close to Carcassonne but enjoy the offerings of the country. Jilly is extremely well organized and a great host. The breakfasts are delicious.
We had a wonderful experience at Jilly's beautiful cottage. She is a charming and very considerate hostess; providing everything you can possibly want and more. The grounds are expansive, from farmland (and entertaining farm animals) to beautiful gardens with an outdoor pool, hammocks and BBQ area, all with full accessibility. There's opportunity for relaxing or hiking or a lakeside picnic. Her complimentary breakfasts are generous and delicious, plus with such extensive knowledge on the area, she tailors her recommendations to your interests; we enjoyed everything she suggested. Her property is just 15mins drive from the airport and similar distance to beautiful La Cite. Highly recommend; will definitely be back.
Very nice place (house and the surrounding area) ! Nice breakfast on the terrace under the almond tree, with baby cats passing closer. Jilly is the perfect host.
I do recommand !
We had a wonderful 5 days at Jilly's place near Conques sur Orbiel. Jilly is a great host. She gave us a warm welcome and provided us with breakfast and many helpful tipps for the area. The olive cottage was clean and spacious and Jilly even arranged a high chair, baby crib and a small bathing tub when she heard that we are travelling with a baby.
We made use of both her private pool and the barbecue area and really enjoyed our stay in the countryside. Definitely go there if you are looking for a lovely, calm and relaxing spot. If you have a car (which is needed to reach the place anyway) its also easy to visit nearby sights like the Carcassonne castle or the market at Mirepoix from here.
A place with lots of positive energy. :) We'll come back one day for sure.
We loved staying at Jilly's cottage. The grounds are very quiet and tucked away in the countryside, offering a lot of charm. The cottage itself was as described, spacious and clean. Felt very home-y. Jilly was extremely helpful and friendly. Would recommend for anyone looking to have a lovely countryside experience.
