“Peace & quiet in rural France”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We enjoyed a wonderful holiday at La Matte; Jilly and her family made us feel very welcome. Jilly works tirelessly to ensure the comfort of her guests, providing many extra touches which we didn't expect. Having recommended a local Michelin star restaurant for our wedding anniversary (she made the reservation), Jilly surprised us with a bottle of Blanquette (Dom Perignon's predecessor to champagne!). Jilly also provides meals if required - delicious duck breast for us following a late arrival!
We stayed in Vine Cottage - plenty of space for 2 of us, with a modern kitchen & bathroom and bright reception room. The cottage is very rural, surrounded by vineyards, so nowhere to eat within walking distance. It is very peaceful (apart from the cicadas!), although within easy reach of numerous sites, small villages and, of course, Carcassonne, which is amazing. Enjoy!

“superb accommodation, very helpful owner”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Really enjoyed our stay at vine cottage. The accommodation was of a very high standard and very comfortable. The beds were all very comfortable and large- plenty of space to stretch out. There were many extras that we weren't expecting, e.g. hair driers, welcome pack of basic provisions, plenty of tea towels and the bath towels were large and soft.
The owner, Jilly, was brilliant. She is so welcoming and always happy to give advice on where to go, what to see. she even emailed us during the holiday with links to upcoming activities in the local area. It is very convenient for Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi as well as other attractions in the area.
The shared Garden was very nice, with sun loungers and swings/trampoline as well as the above ground pool.
