Rowena made us feel very, very welcome when we arrived at her special place. The property was full of wonderful places to explore and the dogs love to keep you company and guide you to the waterfalls and special wooded paths. Nighttime transformed the valley where Rowena's home is nestled and, on most nights, we gazed at the stars for hours. Our bed had lovely linens and was very comfortable. The spacious shared bathroom had dreamy, one of a kind bathtub set perfectly to look out a window out into the valley. There was also a stall shower, as well as toilet and footbath. All of this would have been enough to recommend a stay at Rowena's , but we had the additional privilege of joining Rowena in pottery lessons... and was a highlight in our trip. The location feels remote and yet is only minutes from the town with wonderful restaurants and an historic Abbaye. Carcassonne and other sights to see were also within easy driving distance. Rowena is a truly caring and lovely person who we enjoyed getting to know during our stay. We warmly recommend a stay at Rowena's -- especially if you are a nature lover.
