I loved our short stay in this charming old house in Cavanac. One of my enduring memories of France will surely be sitting in the courtyard sipping a glass of wine while birds swooped and dived against the twilit sky.

The village shop was helpful and welcoming which was good as we discovered the chateau didn't open for dinner until 8.00pm! Luckily, the home was well-equipped to handle such emergencies for hungry travellers.

I am so glad you enjoyed the house...the courtyard is so peaceful and ideal for sipping wine! The shop is under new ownership and the chap is improving his stock all the time...very useful for short stay travellers
Many thanks for your comments...Chloe

“Perfect holiday home!”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic week away; the whole family loved the house We could easily have spent a fortnight here.
The house is welcoming and spacious with good size rooms and comfy beds. It feels much more like a family home than a holiday let. The views from the top floor bedroom are fabulous. The house is old and built with thick stone walls to keep out the heat- perfect in the summer.
The delightful courtyard is filled with flowers and; geraniums it is completely private. There is a large table which easily seated seven of us for evening meals (another large table indoors). In addition there are loungers and a BBQ. We made full use of the dart board in the garage!
Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived.
Every morning the 'bread lady' announces her arrival with a siren blast and sells delicious fresh bread, croissants and pastries from the back of her van. The village shops has all the basic supplies you need. The local wine co-operative is within easy walking distance and they are happy to let you sample wines before buying! The village is so friendly and peaceful.
There are masses of places to visit nearby. The sun shone and we enjoyed swimming in local lakes and the river at Lagrasse. Great choice of local restaurants both on the doorstep and within easy driving distance.
You do need a car to get around but parking is not a problem in the village and so many places of interest are on the doortstep.Carcassonne is a quick and easy drive.
We all hope we can return soon!!

Fantastic, comfortable, relaxing house. We had a wonderful week in this great little village. Everyone very friendly. The house had every amenity one would need. Chloe, the owner, was very helpful prior to our trip and I would definitely recommend - and return.

“Wonderful, spacious hideaway”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Booked with Chloe, the owner, who is incredibly helpful - lots of emails beforehand answering all my questions, she left food and drink for us for our arrival, and minor blip with boiler was fixed within the hour - fantastic!

We were a group of four (fifty something) women friends having a three day break at half term - we didn't want to drive, so got a cab from airport (15-20 minutes, 30 Euros for 4). Cavanac is a tiny village - very quiet, no buses, there is a little shop 3 minutes walk away - bit hidden, but has all the essentials. Bit difficult ordering a cab unless fluent in French - lovely lady in hairdressers helped us.
The house is a lovely, relaxing, shabby chic hideaway - easily sleeps 8 - adjoining studio double ensuite room, and in main house upstairs a twin and two doubles (one with ensuite plus another bathroom). We all said how well we slept - so comfy and peaceful!
We had a great time at O'vineyard and hired a lovely tour guide for the day via Sun tours (see separate reviews). In October we had one beautiful day (the tour day - so worked out well), and drizzly for the day we had in Carcassonne (which is windy in the city). Taxi to Carcassonne around 20 mins/30 Euros. Gorgeous countryside, autumn colours, and less crowds in October.
We want to return in early summer - maybe with a car, as it is difficult to get around without one. Would definitely recommend this house and Chloe, who is absolutely lovely (thank you Chloe!)

I hired this house when friends and I attended the Andrew Weatherall Festival - De La City, held nearby at the stunning medieval castle - le Chateau Comtal in Carcassonne

We were a group of 7 friends and this was ideal. - so big and comfortable. There is a main house, private courtyard with parking and separate studio apartment. We all had seperate bedrooms.

There's lots to see and do in this beautiful region of France. The castle regularly hosts music, arts and food events. I saw Bob Dylan there the year before. Great local food with an outstanding château restaurant right on the doorstep here that serves great, yet incredibly affordable cuisine. We particularly enjoyed hanging out together of an evening in the well appointed, big comfy shabby chic lounge. I

This doesn't feel like a rental, more like a friends holiday home and an excellent option away from the more homogeneous tourist fare.

I try very hard to see that my guests feel they are in a "home" rather than a rental...so,it was very pleasing to me that you felt comfortable in my house! Yes the festivals are amazing...a unigue experience to listen to music of all types in the castle...and only 15 mins away! Thankyou for your generous comments

“The most relaxing holiday yet - great place - instantly comfortable”

Myself and three adult children, have had the most relaxing weeks holiday.
Obviously the weather was great but the house is lovely, tasteful, comfortable and we instantly made ourselves at home.
Nothing has been left to chance in this house, everything was there.
The view from the double bedroom on the second floor is superb and i was glad i had chosen it a great start to the day. Constant hot water always good. Dishwasher, washing machine, nothing left to chance. A great place we all agreed we would go again. The village was friendly and the chap who ran the bar and shop in unison was really helpful. It is a lovely village to walk round with a pretty church and graveyard. Just a stones throw away is the Chateau restaurant but we never had the need to go :)
