Fabulous Gite in France

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in five star accommodations all over the world, but we have never enjoyed ourselves anywhere as much as we did at Domaine de Cure! Upon arriving, we were given an incredibly warm welcome by the owners, Jean-Noel and Agathe. Domaine de Cure is a gorgeous picturesque petite-chateau nestled among beautiful vineyards with stunning views of the Pyrenees Mountains. It is an absolutely peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Carcassonne but close to everything. Our two-bedroom Gite was impeccably clean, bright and cheery! It was truly wonderful to be able to return to our Gite after a busy day of sightseeing and cook dinner while relaxing with other guests and the owners while sipping on a glass of wine! The owners went out of their way to ensure that our stay there was a memorable one! We can't wait to return to Domaine de Cure as it was so fabulous in every way!!

We arrived and were pleasantly surprised Domaine de Cure was as described on the website, clean, modern and attractive. The owners were friendly and provided us with a good 'feeling' for the area, a friendly service for all our needs and ready to assist and advise on all matters both practical, (food shopping etc) and details of places / area's that we could visit. The property itself was good quality and in a really nice, quiet location. The 'pool' and surrounding area was a well sited 'sun spot' and we spent much time in and around the pool. Generally a great holiday for my family, I am happy to recommend Domaine de Cure to friends, family and all who read this review. We will certainly return in the future. Thanks Jean-Noel & Agathe for a great time in France.

The Source

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have chosen a nicer spot. The gite was large and beautifully decorated. Whether relaxing by the pool or walking through the vineyard on the way to town, the setting was perfect. We did not know much about the area and Jean-Noel and Agathe were able to provide us with where to go and restaurants to eat at. The hiking in the forest and mountains was fantastic with great mountain biking. The numerous villages near by each had its own character and really gave you a good sampling of southern French life. The food was fantastic and we were able to buy local goods from a nearby butcher and food shop. After a day of touring it was so nice to relax by the pool drink great local wine, and cook a great dinner in a perfect setting. Jean-Noel and Agathe were perfect hosts.

Relax in style

  • 5 of 5
The directions given were exactly correct. A good start to what would be a perfect week of relaxation mixed with visits to several well recommended sights - well done to Agathe and Jean Noel.
The accommodation could not have been to a higher standard and our hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful.
The warm evenings were spent sitting at the front of our gite, in the setting sun, having barbeques and drinking local wine supplied by Jean Noel ( the Blanquette is magnificent!).
We have recommended these gites to our friends and hope to meet with Agathe and Jean Noel again in the near future.

Domaine de Cure

  • 5 of 5
A late afternoon arrival on a hot May afternoon was met with a refreshing dip in the pool. We found Domaine de Cure on the internet and we were very lucky. The location was superb; close enough to attractions that we could venture out each day or remain back at our immaculate, quiet unit/pool for rest and relaxation. Our hosts Jean-Noel and Agathe were a delight. They took care of all our special needs which included helping us entertain the one child on the trip, my very active, inquisitive nine year old niece. We look forward to a return trip!
