As soon as we arrived at the Métaire Montplaisir we knew that we had made a mistake. We had only booked for one night and, as Amelie showed us around her charming property, we knew that we wanted to stay longer.
As other reviewers have noted, everything about this place is of a high standard. The house, the rooms, the great food and wine. Indeed, his probably the best guest accommodation that we have stayed in. It is also remarkably good value. However what really makes it is the welcome provided by Amelie and her parents. They should give master classes on hospitality to anyone wanting to run a bed and breakfast business.
For those of you thinking about a stay here, I have the following tips:
Avoid the hotels in Carcassonne, this is a far nicer place to stay.
Make sure you bring your swimming costume - the pool is sublime.
Book early, particularly for the summer weeks.
Plan on a stay of at least three nights.
