My husband and I spent 3 blissful nights in this gem of a hotel. Service impeccable throughout from check-in to check-out: nothing was too much trouble. Staff were friendly, helpful and seemed generally concerned that we enjoyed our stay - I was even offered a wrap by the owner who was concerned that I might be chilly whilst dining on the patio.
The room was large, well decorated, air-conditioned and shuttered and provided with every comfort you could want - huge comfortable bed, coffee machine, fridge, comfortable seating area, flat screen TV, i-pod dock, enormous bathroom with twin sinks, corner bath and shower, big mist-free mirrors and fluffy towels, gowns and slippers . . . even a couple of umbrellas in case it rained (it didn't).
The grounds are delightful - pool, tennis courts, numerous little seating areas as well as a large terrace - an oasis of calm.
The food in the restaurant was probably the best I've ever had - delicious, beautifully presented local ingredients accompanied by local wines - heaven. The service was impeccable and the knowledgeable sommelier chose a delightful wine to accompany each course. If it's warm enough eat on the secluded terrace where the only sound is that of the cicadas and the breeze in the trees. We dined there twice and on the third night tried the bistro which was excellent too, as were the generous, scrumptious breakfasts.
I really can't praise this hotel enough as they really have thought of everything. It totally exceeded my expectations and it's so close to Carcassonne. Couldn't ask for more!
