Why Benedict & Camille du Cassé. chose Arrondissement of Carcassonne
Great Place for Holidays. Nice and warm summers. Lots of things to visit starting with Carcassonne. But I must say that when I go there it's to enjoy the house and garden first and foremost.

A beautiful home from home in a stunning setting and a fantastic location!
Our holiday in Bram was thoroughly enjoyed by three generations of our family. The house is homely, comfortable and each corner is filled with fascinating antiquities, paintings and books. The children all loved the adventure of sleeping together in the tower!
The surrounding countryside is abundant with lovely walks - an amble down the Canal du Midi, trawling for conkers along the avenue leading up to the house and poking around the nearby abandoned Chateau de Frontenac were particular favourites of ours. A trip into Carcassone was easy enough and certainly worth the drive if only to see the amazing castle.
By far though, the best feature of the property is the fantastic outside area. The garden offers space in buckets giving the kids total freedom to run wild and be as loud as they want! The pool was a huge hit too - it was big enough to occupy us all as well as our entourage of inflatable animals!
The weather was wonderful, with everyday warm and sunny. The wind that is characteristic of this particular area of France got a little wild at times although it did make drying your pool towels and swimming costumes a doddle!
All in all we had an absolutely fabulous time and I'm sure that we will return again.
Away from it all
Our stay was in a renovated farmhouse in the countryside, about 15 minutes from Carcassonne. The house is spacious and full of character and exactly as described on the website. It is well maintained and has good facilities, including a garden and pool. There is no air-con but it really isn't necessary because the walls are so thick. The owner was very helpful, communicating promptly by phone and on Whatsapp to sort out the wifi. There could perhaps be a bigger TV for families with small children on rainy days, but it didn't bother us. Some parts of the surrounding area are very touristy, but it's easy to escape into the Black Mountains and the foothills of the Pyranees, We had a good experience and would recommend it.
Fantastic family holiday gite; rural peaceful and well equipped
The gite is under described in the listing. The accommodation is large, clean and comfortable. The bedrooms are of a good size and our 2 grandchildren loved sleeping in the tower. It is situated in a very rural area, but close enough to the motorway and Carcassonne airport to gain easy access. The grounds are large allowing for plenty of ball games and well maintained, but the enclosed, secluded private pool was the biggest hit. If the grandchildren could have had their way we would never have left the gite and explored the beautiful countryside and neighbouring villages. A car is essential.
The owner provided an excellent service, totally honest he gave great reassurance about the property when booking and offered positive support to any issues throughout the stay.
Carcassonne castle is a short drive and well worth a visit as are caves in the Black mountains. A canal trip from outside Carcassonne station was very pleasant and good value. There is a reasonable sized Carrefour supermarket at Bram but a larger Geant store near the airport (15 minute drive).
This is probably the best gite we have rented and cannot wait to return.
Teach suite i tuath álainn!
We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenagers) and had a fabulous 2 week holiday at the house. The house is situated in beautiful surroundings, rural area so car is necessary. The house is basic, clean and comfortable. There is no fans provided and recommended this to the owner as the property can become very warm during the summer months. Fantastic large private pool and gardens, well maintained and great during the hot weather. Location is ideal, we did a lot of travelling around the surrounding area. Carcassonne is a must-see medieval town with excellent restaurants, about 20 minutes drive. Nearest beach is at Narbonne (about 1 hr by car). Perpignon, Foix and Mirepoix also worth a visit. Nearest town for restaurants is Mirepoix (about 15 mins drive). Supermarket is situated just outside Bram called Carrefour and has everything you need (about 5 mins drive). Owner is very helpful and friendly. We had a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable holiday at the farmhouse and would highly recommend this property to other families.

La maison se situe au calme sur un très grand terrain. Tout y est, il y a même des jeux pour petits et grands.
Nous remercions vivement notre hôte, très à l écoute et conciliant.
Nous reviendrons sans hésiter!
Très jolie maison, même l'hiver
Nous avons séjourné entre amis durant les fêtes dans cette très belle maison. Nous avons passé un très bon moment.
Le propriétaire est par ailleurs très sympathique et avenant.
Merci pour tout.
