“Excellent family holiday in beautiful vineyard”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

It has been a much better stay than expected. This is our first time traveling with two kids, 4yo and 2m. Victoria has made our life easier by providing lots of information and always being available. The room is a spacious 2 story. Good for family of 4. But on our case, stairs was not so convenient with small children.
The location is great, only a few mins to cute trebe and 20 mins to carcasonne.
I can imagine this place a wonderful family holiday destination in the countryside with pool and play room. The weather just have to he a warmer. Then we could have do bike ride or boat on canal de midi.

We had only two days in the area, and Victoria and Floris accommodated us. After spending our two nights there, we wished we had a whole week to spend there! We were there in October and the weather was perfect. Floris gave the best wine tour we have ever had -- and we have had many in Niagara, California, South Africa etc. Very informative and Victoria's wine and olive oil tasting in the garden was a nice touch after the tour. One day we rented bikes from the winery and toured around some of the small villages surrounding the winery. The cottage was well equipped with anything you would need to prepare any meals you wanted. We just purchased breakfast food to eat out on the patio, and ate the rest of our meals at local restaurants. We will definitely go back for a week's vacation in the future.

Situated in the heart of the Cathares country and backed by wonderfull host with lost of ideas and support, we had an incredible trip. The best of both world: country living and close to exquisite visiting sites. Beautifull wines and the opportunity to cook with regional products. What could you ask more.... The restaurants are also great fun and we indulged in all categories. Floris and Victorai and their beautifull family (dogs included) are just superb. We truly enjoyed our week there and strongly suggest you visit them.

I had the pleasure of staying at Chateau Canet recently and I would highly recommend it to other travellers. The Chateau is a short drive from Carcassonne but has the feeling of going back to an earlier time. It is a beautiful property surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. It was a charming country getaway, perfect for a family trip or just a relaxing weekend.

The cabins are all self-catering. We had a master bedroom, bathroom, well appointed kitchen, an eating area, living room, a beautiful balcony overlooking the grounds, and a loft with three additional beds. The furniture is cosy and comfortable and the rooms were all quite large. There is a swimming pool (unheated) for sunny afternoons and a large lawn for barbequing or relaxing.

Despite being secluded in the country, there was free Internet access and some village shops and excellent restaurants close by. The hosts are delightful and are happy to show you around the property and enjoy a glass of wine from the vineyard with their guests. I would definitely return for another visit.

We spent a week+ at Chateau Canet in October. It was absolutely perfect. Our family of 12 celebrated my parents anniversary here (ages 7-76) and everyone found something to do. Victoria and Floris are wonderful hosts and went out of their way to arrange our numerous side trips with interesting locals (truffle walk, personal tour of Carcasonne, private chef, horse riding, dinners out). The property is gorgeous; we walked out to pick fresh figs every morning. That was just one of the highlights. The wine was good, the markets were nearby and delicious. There was plenty to do in the area surrounding Rustique - never a dull moment. It really was the perfect holiday. We felt spoiled by the attention and perfect accommodations.

Room Tip: We stayed in Chardonnay all together and it was very spacious and perfect.

Just back from a few days of stay in C.Canet with wedding parties there and nearby. A wonderful place - warm welcome, lovely family - thoughtful, hard-working, yet so relaxed and willing to make anything possible (moon-harvesting participation included..) Everything was just perfect and we couldn't praise it highly enough. Thank you team Canet xxx

We had a wonderful stay at Chateau Canet this summer. We went with our family of 4, and 4 other families. Highlights were biking along the Canal du Midi, hiking in the vineyards, fun in the pool, and a wonderful trip to the Castle in the old city. This is a wonderful place to let your kids run free, and to truly relax as a family. We hope to return next year for more wine tasting with Victoria and Floris our wonderful hosts.
