Schönes Haus, zentrale Lage, herzlicher Empfang!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen durchweg tollen Aufenthalt in diesem typisch südfranzösischen Haus! Das Haus selber ist sehr sauber gehalten, erst kürzlich renoviert worden und punktet mit guter und vor allem umfangreicher Ausstattung (sowohl die Küche als auch die anderen Räumlichkeiten)- sogar Satelliten-TV im Schlafzimmer! Felicity und Peter sind sehr herzliche Gastgeber, stets hilfsbereit und haben viele Tipps zur Umgebung parat - wir haben uns sofort willkommen gefühlt! :)

Das kleine verträumte Dörfchen (typisch südfranzösisch) ist erstaunlich zentral gelegen, innerhalb von 20min ist Carcassonne erreicht und auch die anderen vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Umgebung (Grotten, Katharer-Burgen, Kloster, Strand) sind alle in einer bis max. zwei Autofahrstunden zu erreichen. Sehr empfehlenswert :)

Beste Grüße von Anne & Maria

Owner's Response: Thank you Anne and Mary, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay in our house and hope you will be back! Here is a translation of your review: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We had a thoroughly great stay at this typical southern French home ! The house itself is kept very clean , recently renovated and scores with good and especially extensive facilities ( both the kitchen and the other rooms ) - even satellite TV in the bedroom ! Felicity and Peter are very welcoming hosts , always helpful and have a lot of tips to the environment of Europe - we felt immediately welcome ! :) The small sleepy village (typical southern French ) is amazing centrally located , within 20 minutes Carcassonne is reached and also the other many attractions ( caves , Cathar castles , monasteries , beach ) are all in a max . to achieve two hours by car . Highly recommended :) Best regards from Anne & Mary

Montlaur, a small village of less than 600 residents, is also a thriving little centre for the six villages in the Val de Dagne and has a post office, traditional baker's, pharmacy, small supermarket, butcher's and hairdresser's plus five different wine producers providing wine tasting in the village. Market stalls with organic bread, local produce including fruit vegetables and cheeses, and of course wine tasting take place twice a week . There is a small children's well equipped play area and pleasant park.

There are numerous fetes and village festivals during the summer where you can participate in village meals and dance to live music.. Petanque is the favourite sport.

Lagrasse (12km), is listed as one of the prettiest villages in France, with a 13th century abbey, humpback bridge , covered market, cobblestone streets, and swimming along the River Orbieu with a lifeguard on duty in high season . It is good place to explore at any time of the year and has a number of good restaurants. Many cultural events in summer including concerts , open air plays and Occident singing

There is a country park with an attractive sandy beach and ((supervised) lake swimming 20 mins away close to Carcassonne with an O2 Adventure Park rope, wire and zip wire course .River swimming with lifeguard in Lagrasse in peak season and river and lake swimming within very easy each. Horse riding and trekking are available in Montlaur and white-water rafting is also close by. Bikes can be hired and delivered to the house and some of the major walking routes in the region pass through the village.

Montlaur is in the heart of the Corbieres wine growing region of Languedoc Rousiilon - one of the sunniest areas in France with over 300 days of sunshine a year. It is the perfect location to explore the Cathar castles and enjoy this beautiful region rich in history. Ideally placed for walking, cycling, and swimming in local lakes and rivers.

Carcassonne, 25 mins drive, is the second most visited French city, following Paris. It has an amazing walled and fortified city dating from the Middle Ages and is central to the Cathar history as told in the Kate Mosse books “Sepulchre” and “Labyrinth”. The castle has a complete medieval defensive architectural ensemble and is a Unesco World Heritage Site

The Canal de Midi, also a World Heritage site, meanders through the region. The nearest section is at Trebes , twenty minutes away with the opportunity to take boat rides to Carcassonne and beyond.

The Mediterranean is just an hour away with long sandy beaches and azure sea . The Pyrenees, and the nearest Ski Station, are about an hour and a half away

The Cathar Chateaux of Lastours, Villerouge-Termenè, Termes, Quéribus, Peyrepertuse and many others are all within easy reach (less than an hour and often nearer) as is Monsegur, the last standing point of the Cathars situated in the Pyrenees. Mirepoix is a lovely town to visit enroute to Montsegur .

Minerve, is a fortified village where the “Parfaits” (type of Cathar pastors) refused to abjure their faith and died singing at the stake. It is situated on a stunning gorge and is one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France .
