“Another wonderful weekend”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

I have just returned from another relaxing stay at La Cortanela. The weather was unexpectedly warm and sunny, and though the pool looked inviting, I wasn't brave enough for late October so I enjoyed a game of boules instead on Chris and Tricia's new 'boule court'. Such fun. The gardens are really maturing and look great now - and picking and eating fresh figs from the trees was a great treat.
Indoors the decor is clean, fresh and open. This year the guest suite has been freshened, the decor lightened and the bedding is new and great quality. Huge fluffy towels, a sunny private patio, amazing breakfasts, free wi-fi, fabulous views and countryside to die for... I didn't want to come home. La Cortanela is a special place. I'll be back.

We recently spent 4 days with Chris, Tricia and Tom, not to mention Ben, the border collie. It was a superb experience, the room comfortable, quiet and well equipped, including a tea/coffee tray, the location as good as it can get, with fabulous views over the Languedoc countryside, but only 5 minutes from the centre of Limoux, and lots of advice on places to visit and to eat. The evening meals prepared by Trish were excellent and the breakfasts a great way to start the day.
Altogether a great experience that we will be repeating next year, and we highly recommend La Cortenela for a short or not so short stay.

We recently had the great pleasure of staying at La Cortanela. Our hosts, Tricia and Chris Wheatley, made us feel so welcome and shared their knowledge and love of this beautiful region.
The guest room is spacious and beautifully designed and decorated. Every comfort awaits you and you feel like you have booked into a spa retreat. There is a lovely terrace outside your door where you can enjoy the amazing view of the vineyards below and the Pyrenees in the distance. The pool and deck area are also at your disposal if you just want to sit back and relax, a very tempting choice at La Cortanela.
The 'petit dejeuner' each morning was delicious and included a wide variety of choices. We loved the stewed fruits, fresh fruit skewers, local cheeses, and pastries. We really appreciated our morning chats over breakfast as Chris and Tricia helped us plan our daily excursions and shared their personal experiences of living in this area.
We would also highly recommend booking a dinner at La Cortanela. Tricia will prepare a meal that is delicious as well as beautifully presented. Chris will be your sommelier for the evening. A most memorable meal!
We hope that more people will discover this incredible B&B and we highly recommend a stay of several days to enjoy all that Tricia and Chris have to offer at their lovely home.

Just returned from a wonderful long weekend, staying at this amazing location. Although the forecast was not great the sun still shone, on this picturesque spot. Chris, Tricia and Tom looked after us, as they always do. The accommodation with its spacious en suite shower room and patio doors to a private terrace with views over the vineyards offers comfort and relaxation. Definitely a must, to get away from the hustle and bustle.
Could not recommend more, looking forward to planning our next visit.

We are just back from a wonderful 4 night stay at La Cortanela outside Limoux, and it more than lived up to previous guests' comments. The location (beautiful views over the surrounding fields and vineyards), the food and the accommodation were perfect. The hospitality we received from Tricia, Chris, Tom, Ben and Cola just made our holiday - what a team! We would definitely recommend a stay at La Cortanela, and hopefully we will be back to visit them again one day (for a return game of boules!!).

My partner and I recently stayed 5 nights at this beautiful B&B. Chris and Tricia were the perfect hosts, striking the balance between being very helpful and attentive, while also giving us our space, making us feel very comfortable to come and go as we pleased. The highlights for me were having your own private terrace and the swimming pool surrounded by lavender, both with amazing views of surrounding country side and the Pyrenees in the distance. The room is ideal, really clean and spacious with all mod cons. The only potential issue some people might have is the steep and bumpy public section of the road leading up to the house. But this is definitely worth it when you arrive. Every recommendation they gave us turned out to be perfect. Have already recommended it to friends and family.

A beautiful B&B with glorious views of the surrounding countryside and ideally placed for exploring the region. The bedroom itself was bright, airy and super comfortable. Breakfast was first class and Chris and Tricia (the owners) were charming and gracious hosts. Loved the pool, table tennis and Ben the dog. Would highly recommend it and will not hesitate to return.
