Apartment in Chalabre, Aude, Languedoc Roussillon- In East Wing of Restored Former Capucine Convent with Courtyard, Park, Pool and Trout Strea

The spacious apartment is on the second (top) floor of the East Wing of this tastefully restored historic residence.

Brilliant Base for Cathar Country

  • 5 of 5

We originally booked this lovely appt. so we could visit Carcassonne but once we arrived we found so many smaller villages to visit we didn't really find time. The Appt is lovely and has great views and a great pool and garden to relax in. The village is sleepy but has 2 bars 2 patisseries, and a supermarket. It is right next to a Route Verte which we used to cycle to the fantastic Chateau at Camon. The lake at Puivert was great for swimming and we visited Mirepoix which was much more authentic than Carcassonne. Overall this is a great base and we would highly recommend bothe the appt and Andre who runs it, and the little village of Chalabre.

Narbonne Plage
Car: recommended


Just over one hour's drive to the Mediterranean coast (nearest resorts are Narbonne Plage and Gruissan).


Carcassonne airport is 40 minutes away by car as is the A61 motorway. A car is essential as the situation is rural.


The residence is in the heart of the medieval village of Chalabre which has shops, bars, a hotel-restaurant, post office and service station. The famous market town of Mirepoix with its wide choice of restaurants and Monday market is 15 minutes away.

Further Details:

The Blanquette de Limoux vineyards are close by and the Pyrenees and famous Cathar castles are within easy driving distance.
