We stayed at this inn for four days in June and were very pleased with our choice. Our accommodations included two bedrooms (one of which we never used), a shower room, a toilet room, and a huge walk-in closet. There were four sinks in all! The décor was pleasantly austere – butter yellow washed walls, beautiful old stone sinks, no frills, spacious and comfortable. Food was good at breakfast and great at dinner. The demi-pension plan is excellent value and the owners offer creative use of chevre and vegetables for the first course and tasty mains. With an aperitif of Blanquette de Limoux and a nice local rose table wine we were satisfied each night. When possible, dining takes place on a large terrace. While there we enjoyed the pool and watched baby donkeys gambol about (yes, it’s that quiet!). Even though the inn is isolated in a tiny village, it is well situated for day trips by car throughout Cathar country and we took every advantage to explore the sights. We enjoyed lunch in Limoux, climbed Peyrepertuse, visited Montsegur and the Chateau d’Arques, attended a fair in Alet, and drove through Rennes-les-Bain often, each time looking for the path to the property in “Sepulchre.” For a souvenir, we purchased a small pottery salt cellar with local salt. We wish we could find a source for more of this wonderful salt but have failed in our attempts so far. I would highly recommend this hotel to others, but with a caution regarding the solitude, which might not be to everyone’s liking.
