The village is quiet but everybody had a greeting for us. The cafe/bar beside the chateau is the only one in the village but it serves good coffee and beer. The shop...

I stayed in this property with my husband and 4 children. It was absolutely perfect. It is close enough to Carcassonne and other attractions but to be honest we spent the majority of our time by the pool! The pool was beautiful- surrounded by lavender which smelled beautiful and was very relaxing. The high hedges also made it very private....

We have just returned from Malves en minervois and we had a fantastic time the location was perfect remote enough to be relaxing yet close enough to so many attractions, the pool was a welcome after the site seeing. The view from the front bedroom was perfect, we ate our meals outside and socialised outside. Everything you could need.

About the neighbourhood
During the summer months there are a wealth of festivals throughout the region. Opera, theatre, pop, rock everywhere the villages and the towns are celebrating. Carcassonne holds the Festival de Carcassonne from June until the end of August. There are always a selection of top international artistes performing at the festival. Also during this time there are free concerts held in the town of Carcassonne. All sports and recreations seem to be catered for. The smaller towns with Abbeys will hold musical soirees, organ recitals some are combined with dining too. I try to leave in the house up-to-date information about the area together with brochures.
