We had the wonderful pleasure of two weeks at the Chateau Canet in April. We were warmly greeted by Victoria and her family and given a tour and brief orientation of our accommodation. A bottle of chilled rosé waited for us in the fridge as well as an assortment of other wines (great wines!) available from their winery. We were even lucky enough to get a tour of the winery and a tasting of their wine and olive oil. The apartment was spacious, with comfortable furnishings and lovely fresh linens and towels. The kitchen was adequately stocked with cooking utensils and dishes etc. - the only thing I missed was having an oven. The views from our balcony and the rooms were enticing – olive trees, poppies and vineyards as far as the eye could see. At night the stars were plentiful and it was so quiet – until there was a morning of rain and then that night there was a chorus of frogs and crickets. We found the location to be the perfect jumping off spot for many days of exploring the region – visiting Cathar castles, abbeys, markets, Carcassone and simply drives in the countryside. It was also a wonderful place to just stay at home and go for walks through the vineyards. Victoria was a great source of information about everything and steered us to some wonderful places. Most of all she is a gracious hostess – my cousin gave her the very appropriate title “Chatelaine”. I am already dreaming of the next visit – and hope it can be for even longer.
