The Space

Beatifully restored south facing village house in the south of France Sleepy village with sheep rabbits, forest and beautiful views. near Rennes le Chateau in French Cathar country. Beautiful walks start at the door.

The house has two double bedrooms. There is a trundle bed in the living room which can be a single or a double when it is not simply made up as a day bed. Three WC's two bathrooms including walk in shower bathroom, double sinks.

The kitchen has a granite work top top and a spacious fridge, It is very well equipped combining modernity with traditional materials.

The house is very well insulated and cool in the summer and very comfortable in the winter with oil central heating. There is also a laundry.

The village is perched on a hill with wondrous views. There is a daily bread van and only 10 minutes drive away are two market towns and many other attractions. The area is known for its massive diversity of plant and wildlife species, walking tracks, Roman and medieval ruins. Particularly famous for Cathar castles and recently the mystery of Rennes le chateau. Also close to skiing and the Mediterranean sea. Carcassonne, Toulouse, Lourdes and Carcassonne are all typical day trips

Unless keen cyclists a motor is almost obligatory.

The house is beautifully finished and Visitors are invited to use the chateau garden and its impressive range of aromatic herbs.

Guest Access

Guests use the laundry which has a tumble drier, the chateau terrace and herb garden, the sun trap pedaestrian ruelle outside the front door, a barbecue and table a stone`s throw away on the west side of the chateau.

Interaction with Guests

We live very nearby and so unless exceptionally we are away we see a lot of our guests

The Neighborhood

Beautiful scenery, great food, friendly people and so many interesting things to do and see nearby

Getting around

Not from the village itself. 7 miles away in Quillan yes. Bikes are available for hire.

The SNCF trains arrive from Carcassonne to Esperaza and to Quillan.

Other Things to Note

We have a very well stocked herb garden and love to share our herbs with the guests. The chateau has an association and there are sometimes very good concerts on in the summer evenings or afternoons.

  • Sophie's house is delightful, in an isolated village and we had a fantastic weekend. Everything worked well, the house is well furnished, was very clean and the place was nicely prepared for our arrival.

  • This is a wonderful place in a charming, centrally located, hilltop village. The apartment is big. Plenty of room for five. It is tastefully decorated and full of character. It is also well equipped with good wireless, a huge tub, and a great kitchen. It's well worth going to local markets and cooking up the local fare. Sophie is also great. Very friendly and helpful. We wished we could have stayed longer.

    The house is amazing and full of character!! The bathroom was incredible.

    The area is so beautiful, a week is never enough to see the area. We actually though about living there. People are very friendly and the food is amazing, we had a great time there.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Sophie's place. Beautifully located for exploring the Pyrenees/Cathar region. Beautifully appointed kitchen made it like a home away from home. Highly recommended.

  • Great house for a family, in a region with plenty for everyone to do. Sophie made us and our two children welcome in every way. The house was comfortable - cozy but with plenty of space for everyone.And she shared her considerable knowledge of the region, with suggestions for hikes, thermal baths and beautiful drives.

  • Sophie's apartment is in a beautiful small village outside quillan. There is plenty of walking nearby and the apartment has everything you could need. We would love to stay again.

  • Superbe maison dans un cadre majestueux!
    Tout à été refait à la perfection. C'est une demeure qui fait réver.
    Sophie est une hôtesse fort sympathique et acceuillante.
    Nous à même offert une bouteille de vin pour profiter de Sa terasse.
    Superbe endroit pour décompresser des centres touristiques.

  • Sophie made our stay very enjoyable. The accommodation was charming, authentic and as advertised. We felt included and the events at the chateau added to the ambiance and enjoyment of our stay. The area around St Ferriol provided us with many excursions, but we did not have time for all the things we wanted to see, including the rafting. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Thank you Sophie for a great 12 days.
