Jane, Dean & the amazing Hugo at Planalvy are perfect hosts: hospitable, thoughtful & a real pleasure to meet.
The accommodation's a blend of boutique hotel & home. Tastefully & warmly furnished, it's crisp & fresh with great showers & comfortable beds (& super pillows for fellow pillow fanatics!). The property also has a pool & lovely garden grounds.
Planalvy's in a great position for exploring so many of Aude's pretty towns & villages, but is set in a very peaceful location near Villelonge d'Aude - an ideally restful spot after a day out & about.
Jane's breakfasts are lovely & the personal touches (like home made jams) make them a real treat. Having had two evening meals at Planalvy we'd also recommend disregarding guidebook recommendations & staying in for dinner!
A stay above & beyond expectations: we'll be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a family run chambre d'hote located in the beautiful countryside of Aude, close to Carcassonne in the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. All of our rooms have extremely comfortable beds with pristine, luxurious bedding. Each room is ensuite with fresh fluffy towels and complimentary access to wifi, and a lovely cool swimming pool to dip in to when those warm, relaxing French days get a bit too much! Breakfast and dinner all sourced from local fresh produce are available on request, as well as some delicious local wine to compliment! Set on nineteen acres of ground, in an old winery with stunning views of our vineyards and surrounding countryside, there is acres of land to walk, cycle or run and be free in and to lose those cobwebs and we are 15 minutes from Limoux and 30 minutes from Carcassonne airport. ... more less
