This is a charming, cozy, well-appointed home in a tiny, tiny village. I visited in the early spring, when the weather was unpredictable and the village was nearly deserted. Guests should know that the only commercial establishments in Aigne are a gourmet restaurant (excellent), two art galleries (closed when I was there) and two wineries (closed for tasting during my visit). So Olonzac, 8 km. down the road, will be one's source for everything from a croissant to a gas tank fill-up. But Aigne is well-located for exploring this lovely region of France.
The kitchen is well-equipped, beds comfortable with high-end linens, and there's ample artificial light -- necessary because the house is tucked between two others at the end of a short alley, so natural light is limited, and there is no real view. The only space for tucking away clothing consists of a mezzanine level accessible by what I would characterize as a ladder, rather than a stair. The washer and dryer work well, and hot water is immediate and plentiful. The owner has provided a wealth of informational brochures about things to do in the region, restaurant recommendations, etc., and she kept in close touch with me before and during my visit.
I enjoyed my stay, and plan to return later in the season to explore more of the Cathar castles and wineries in the area and feel more of the energy I'm sure develops as the weather improves. The property manager is extremely gracious and helpful.
I so wanted to give it five stars. However, I was seeking a place for a stay of a month or longer later in the year, and I knew it wouldn't work for that. So the four star rating reflects my very personal assessment based on my specific need.
