This comfortable, well furnished gite is part of a restored farmhouse dating back over 200 years to around the time of the French Revolution. The property offers good quality family accommodation, with one large double bedroom and a twin bedded room. Both bedrooms offer lovely views across the extensive gardens to the wooded valley. The main living room and principal bedroom both open out onto the private terrace.Situated on the edge of the village it is nonetheless within easy walking distance of the boulangerie and village shops, bar, restaurant, etc. The gite is a superb base for those who wish to explore the two magnificent World Heritage sites of the Canal du Midi and the fairytale Cité de Carcassonne with its 54 turrets, explore the beautiful countryside of this part of France, delve into its fascinating history, or simply sit on...

About the neighbourhood
Cuxac Cabardès is a pretty village with its own shops and boulangeries, and restaurant/bar, nestling in the foothills of the Montagne Noire. 'Les Libellules' is peacefully situated overlooking open countryside on the edge of the village, just a pre-breakfast stroll from the boulangerie and other facilities.

There is so much to do and see - the Gouffre de Cabrespine, the deepest chasm in Europe; the Grottes de Limousis, spectacular underground caves with crystals that are found nowhere else on earth; the Cathar castles of Lastours just 15 minutes away by car, horseriding from just outside the village, wonderful walking quite literally from the cottage door, not to mention the two World Heritage sites of La Cité de Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi. Why not cycle along the towpa...
