Tucked away in the heart of Cathar Country this was the perfect place for a short break. We had four days with no TV, no internet, no newspapers and came home thoroughly refreshed.
Our room was in a converted barn just across the tiny street from reception - rough white painted walls and simple but spotless furnishings. We had the same delightful view from the terrace where most meals were served (cosy dining room when it was too cold one night.) Excellent regional food - half board extremely good value as others have said with full bottle of very drinkable local wine included between two. Lovely sunny swimming pool for cooling off at the end of the day.
Endless walks and driving tours nearby - do go up to the source of the Sals river (salt spring). Recommend the Sunflower guide for walks (their route to get to Carcassonne is spectacular.) For a bit of local colour Kate Mosse's 'Sepulchre' made great bedtime reading.
