“First Class and such a wonderful relaxing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Well, we were absolutely bowled over by La Cortanela. First of all we received the most lovely welcome by Tricia and Ben the dog. After a very long day we arrived mid evening time and were shown our lovely room and ensuite facilities and of course the delightful pool area. We were given a very much needed glass of wine and a cold beer and left to sit and soak in the peaceful suroundings. The views from the terrace outside the room are just wonderful and Ben pops round to make sure you are ok and to come and have a bit of love. There is wine and beer on tap at just 1 euro per glass, who could ask for more. I took a much needed cool off in the pool, though it was an amazing 27 degrees warm but so refreshing and surrounded by wonderful smelling lavendar, butterflies and of course even more gorgeous views. We had bought ourselves some tomatoes, cucumber, cold meats and cheeses and local bread and settled down to a wonderful relaxed evening of wine, simple food and the most stunning sunset - simple perfect. Limoux itself is a lovely town with lots to see and do and of course we had to visit Carcossanne which was just fabulous. It rained the day we visited Carcossanne but it was no problem as every restaurant and bar have ample tables under umbrellas and covers; we were so pleased it was alot cooler that day as we had Cassoulet and it was just so delicious. Breakfast was so beautifully presented every morning with local bread, croissants, jams, cheeses, meat, cereals, yoghurt, fruits and delicious fresh coffee and orange juice; on the terrace on a sunny day and in Tricia's dinning room on colder days. We also had a meal cooked for us by Tricia and she joined us for the evening, the food was lovely, gorgeous grilled vegetables and mozarella, just delicous and a wonderful lemon tart dessert; again the attention to detail and the presentation was wonderful, but most of all we so enjoyed Tricia's company. It is such a shame we missed Chris but we did meet Tom their son and admired his photographic work. I feel we have made some new friends and were made to feel so wonderfully welcome and didnt want to leave; but I know we will be back. Thank you so much Tricia, Ben and Tom for making our time with you so special. Merci beaucoup et bientot.

La Cortanela is a beautiful house with fabulous views and the guest accommodation is perfect, a very comfortable room and beautiful bathroom. Chris and Tricia are warm and welcoming hosts and every morning they bring you a tasty breakfast of fruit, croissants, bread, cheese and jams on the terrace which you can have accompanied by the lovely Ben (the family dog!).
The surrounding area is just beautiful and you are well placed to explore from here: all in all a very enjoyable week and a great place to stay. Thank you also, Chris for sorting me out with my boarding pass the morning I was leaving!

What a really perfect find, this is 'a gem of a place'! Trishia and Chris could not have been more welcoming and helpful and the accommodation is perfect (there were three of us, so there was room enough for a double bed and a temporary bed for my 9 year old). You have your own front door and do not have to disturb anyone coming in or out. Breakfast is served in Chris & Trishia's beautiful home and you are made to feel very welcome. The the house is very tasteful with a beautiful view of the mountains.....and a swimming pool which we plan to check out on our next trip in July!
Limoux itself is a wonderful, in fact it is my favorite small French town. It has a lovely square and is unspoiled, as is the surrounding countryside. To sum it up, this is a great place to stay and we are already planning to return in July,

Room Tip: Only one room for guests.

From the 1st contact with Chris and Trishia it was apparent that they have got it right. We were visiting the area for a wedding and having found La Cortanela on the internet it was made very easy to book and regular email contact with Chris enabled us to know exactly where we were and what we needed to do.
The room was perfect, with the little finishing touches making it a great stayt for us. The pool and breakfast and views really did make us feel totally refreshed and lucky to have found La Cortanela we would definately recommend a stay at this Little Bit of Paradise. Thank you so much Chris Tricia Tom and Ben

Beautiful location , with a warm and inviting reception from our host's and great facilities,what more could you ask for.
We were served a delicious breakfast each morning, traditional croissants with homemade jams containing homegrown fruit, and much more.
The room was of an excellent standard with a laptop and internet connection ( even had hair straightners in the bathoom).
Limoux is not far only a 25min walk or 5 minute drive away, with shops and bars, with a very friendly atmosphere it's a great night out.

Interesting hillside location making for a fabulous pool with a view. Comfortable and spotlessly clean accommodation with lovely en-suite. Delicious cuisine. The privacy and complete freedom of your own independent entry door. Tricia and Chris welcoming and very friendly hosts. What more could you ask?

I was returning to France and wanted to return to a lovely retreat I had found. There is always a warm welcome from Chris and Trish, who are only too willing to make your stay enjoyable. A welcome drink by the pool and I booked a dinner for my first night, which was fabulous. The breakfast was equally as nice.
Scenery is superb and their establishment is very clean and tidy. Wi Fi available and ample car parking. I can certainly recommned this a place to stay. I will be back !
