Carcassonne 'La Cite': La Cité Médiévale

The medieval walled town lies on the right bank of the river Aude. It has 52 towers connected by two rings of battlements that stretch for 3km.

Built over the ruins of a former Roman fortress, 'La Cite' of Carcassonne was occupied by both the Visigoths and the Saracens, before becoming the theatre of Pope Innocent III's crusades against the 'Cathar' heretics in the 13th century.

La Bastide St Louis

The town situated on the left bank was all but destroyed during the crusades but was rebuilt in 1260 to a chess board layout. The first of its kind in Europe it is the template for the linear design of many modern cities.

Despite the attentions of the 'Prince Noir' who set the Bastide ablaze in 1355, the town retains the ancient architecture to this day.

Exhilarating Christmas Market

The center of Carcassonne is transformed into a winter wonderland, with market stalls surrounding an ice rink which provides the perfect focal point for the festive season

Canal Du Midi: The Canal du Midi and the Canal de la Robine. Undertaken by Pierre-Paul Riquet in the 17th century, to link the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, it crosses the Aude river from West to East over a distance of more than 100km.

The Canal du Midi runs 240 km and is filled by a complicated system of feeder canals and reservoirs. It includes surviving examples of the earliest inventions related to hydraulic engineering and associated construction works. Thanks to some 350 such works (bridges, locks, aqueducts, overflow outlets), a number of which have never been altered since their first construction and the towpath with 300 year old trees, the Canal du Midi was included by UNESCO in December 1996 on its World Heritage List.

About Heather Fisher

My Affair with Carcassonne began in 1974 when visiting the fairy tale castle and vibrant city as a child. It was many years after this first visit before I returned to live in the Carcassonne area with my wife and family and it is now our great pleasure to open our home to travelers and first time visitors alike so that they can enjoy the unique character of this dramatic and un-spoilt region of France.

Heather Fisher purchased this house in 2004

Why Heather Fisher chose Mazerolles-du-razes

Heather and I found this property, while living in Montreal, when our first son was just 3 months old. We loved the idea of being within the perimeter of the Mazerolles du Razes village, although equally important was the south facing garden which is completely private, with views over vineyards and sunflower fields to the Pyrenees.

We lived in the property for 5 years before returning to England, with both our sons attending the primary school in the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Heather and Alan,



Just a quick note to say thank you for sharing your house with us.



We all had a thoroughly splendid time in the house, so comfortable and a splendid pool.



We are considering a holiday again next year as we had such a lovely time.



Would you like us to write a review on trip advisor? It would be very positive.



Many thanks,



Gaynor and family

3 wonderful weeks in September.

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a holiday in a typically French house where you can relax and unwind then this is ideal.It is situated in a small,old, circular village which is very peaceful with friendly locals.The large, sheltered garden is wonderful to sit where there is always a spot in the sun or the shade or you can sit on the large,raised terrace and admire the views while eating your meals.The big swimming pool was also superb with a shallow section for toddlers.Debbie the manager was extremely helpful and friendly and sorted out a couple of minor problems (supply a fan,washing basket etc.).In brief, a lovely old house where we would stay again and definitely recommend to families with children.Plenty of places to visit including the Med. or just enjoy the lovely old house with its wide staircase and tiled floors.

Wonderful Family Holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful country home. The caretakers were both very nice and welcoming. There was plenty of room which meant that everyone (in our large group) had a space to relax in! The house was also well equipped with everything from toys for the kids to washing machines and a large sized garden.

Everyone absolutely loved the pool (especially the kids) which was well maintained and had lots of privacy.

The surrounding areas were magnificent, with incredible views of the Pyrenees and colourful French countryside. The house is located in a quaint little village close to Carcassonne and under an hour’s drive from the nearest beach.

We’ll definitely be returning next year!

Très agréable

  • 5 of 5
Nous étions un groupe de 13 adultes et 2 bébés et nous avons fort apprécié notre séjour à l'Ancienne Maison de Vigneron. Il y avait assez d'espace pour tout le monde et tout le mobilier/matériel nécessaire. La personne de contact sur place était disponible et très accueillante. Merci de nous avoir permis de profiter de votre maison et d'avoir pu y passer de si agréables moments.

Great days in October

  • 5 of 5
We spent two great weeks in this lovely house. Although we had some problems with a heavy rain storm on our arrival day, we had no problem to contact Mimmi, the housekeeper, and the owner to had the problems fixed within a few days. Everybody was friendly and helpful.
The house is situated in a beautiful landscape, with a fantastic view from the terrace, a great garden and even the pool we could use due to the warm and sunny weather in October.
The house plus the stable is big enough for up to 3 families and the kitchen and the dining area is big enough to host all guests. The washing machine was great, but a dryer would be helpful even if you have small children with you.
Mazerolles-du-Razes is situated perfect to visit Carcassonne, Mirepoix, Narbonne and the beaches. Even a visit in Andorra is possible!

Fantastic time in beautiful peaceful country house

  • 4 of 5
We spent 4 weeks at this lovely house during the month of August and had a fantastic time. The house has everything that a family would require. The garden is large with enough room for children to play ball games without annoying anyone but a couple of strategically placed benches would be nice. The pool is fantastic. Throughout our stay the pool man visited almost every day and therefore it is extremely clean and as it is gated is very safe. The stables were a quiet retreat for some of our visitors from the hustle and bustle of the main house. It was also very useful for a family who visited us as it allowed them some privacy.
The raised terrace at the back was a surprise but turned out to be ideal as it provided a good view over the beautiful countryside and as it was raised above the main garden we were not plagued by insects during meal times.
The village does not have any shops and although the bread van does come each day we never managed to hear the “horn”. This was probably due to the fact the beds were unbelievably comfortable and we slept like logs. The neighbouring village at Belveze has everything you would need. A good butcher, boulangerie, bar, post office, pizza restaurant and the huit de huit ( local co-op) that has everything you would need. The fact there is sky TV was brilliant as we managed to watch the Olympics round up every evening and keep abreast of our news at home. Mimmi, the "house keeper" was brilliant. A couple of garden chairs broke and we ran out of gas while we were there but Mimmi and Ian the pool man sorted any problems out immediately and nothing was too much trouble for them.
A car is essential as there is no public transport.
Carcasonne was only half an hour away and Limoux about 15 minutes. Limoux has the larger supermarkets on both sides of the town. There is an evening market on Tuesdays where local produce is sold and numerous restaurants around the market place to eat before you browse the stalls.
Lots to visit locally eg Renne le chateaux, Mirepoix. My daughter enjoyed the riding lessons which began with " First catch your horse"!!!!.
I would recommend this holiday home for a large family or like us for people who want a lot of visitors for a holiday in a quiet backwater but within driving distance of some beautiful towns.

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a great weeks stay in The Ancienne Maison de Vigneron where a fab time was had by all. The house is full of character with the added bonus of being well equiped and comfy too. We stayed in both the main house and stables, and so had lots of room to range around in, the views from the terrace, where many a chilled evening was spent, are fantastic.

The house is located in the lovely little circulade o'f Mazerolles du Razes which is a good base from which to explore the area, theres lots to do for everybody, with historical Cathar sites like Carcassonne and Chateau Peyrepeteuse, and also whitewater rafting (I managed to capsize the raft, great fun!!) and karting.

The swimming pool also gets a special mention as although it was great to get out and about we all looked forward to returning home and jumping into the pool for a splash around . . . . . .perfect!!

Lastly thanks to Heather and Alan for answering our questions beforehand and sharing their lovely house with us

We will return!
