We stayed at Sainte-Helene in the summer and had a wonderful time. Kay and Mark are both very welcoming and made our stay extra special. We stayed in the apartment, which was very well equipped with very generous welcome back, including milk, fresh jam, ground coffee, cheese, wine, and even more, perfect to get you started.
Mark even took us around on a wine and olive tasting day, which was brilliant, although I would recommend not doing this on your final night as our trip back to the airport took us 3 hours instead of 40 minutes after too many bottles of red the night before.
It was very relaxing to talk with Mark and Kay in the evening on the terrace, talking through where we had been in the day and for some more tips for the following day with a glass of wine. Mark is very knowledgeable about the area, and has lots of recommendations and advice along with maps and guides.The area is so picturesque and there is so much to see. We particularly enjoyed swimming in the river and lake and I would through recommend Carcassonne it's magical.
Sainte-Helene is a unique place to stay, I can honestly say I have never felt so welcome before as when we stayed at Sainte-Helene. We are hoping to come back and stay again soon.
