About Claudia Löhner

We had been looking for a place in the south of France for several years and fell in love the first time we saw Le Trabet with its stone facade and blue window shutters.

As to ourselves, we have traveled far and wide. We were both born in Germany where we attended the university. We have lived in Wales and the US and are now happy to be at this beautiful property in the unspoiled countryside of the Aude province.

Claudia Löhner purchased this house in 2013

Why Claudia Löhner chose Carcassonne surroundings

Le Trabet used to be a winery, dating back to the 18th century. The Domaine has been painstakingly restored to accommodate three luxurious gites.

The estate is set in a small park with establishes trees, shrubs and hedges. The infinity swimming pool is fabulous. This is a superb property located right in the unspoiled countryside of the Aude province.

As a photographer, I take advantage capturing the many beautiful details - or I just sit down with a good cup of coffee and enjoy the view…

Please see for yourself and take a look at some of the photos on our website Le Trabet.

What makes this house unique

There are over 250 years of history here and with it comes a sense of enduring quality: this is a house of stone which was built to last.

Blue window shutters and wrought-iron gates pick up the color of the sky.

An old barn with its wine cellar points to the former role as wine-making estate.

And then there is the large swimming pool, the park with its huge trees, a magnificent view of the Montagnes Noires and the snowy peaks of the Pyrenees in the distance -

What more could one want … There are numerous fantastic restaurants to discover, quaint ones and grandiose ones too: five Michelin-star restaurants are in the vicinity. Not to forget the ancient ruins and Cathar castles !

And of course there is the unforgettable sound of the wind that plays with the palm trees -

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful two weeks at Le Trabet, and really enjoyed everything the region had to offer. Le Trabet and the pool were great, with beautiful clean and well equipped gites. We'd love to come back sometime!

Outstanding property in every respect.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property surrounded by sunflowers, a very relaxing place to stay. We stayed in La Palmier - full of character and charm and well equipped - a truly stunning gite. The grounds are gorgeous and immaculate with an excellent swimming pool to relax in. Owners and guardians charming, helpful and informative.

Lots of beautiful towns to visit including Carcasonne and a boat trip along the Canal du Midi is fascinating and relaxing. An excellent place to go on holiday we would love to return to Le Trabet.

Absolutely wonderful property, beautiful outdoor spaces, so wonderfully French in feel

  • 5 of 5

I felt like I was living in a French movie for the week. Magnificent French manor with the most beautiful main bedroom and lounge room. We sat outside on a wonderful garden terrace all week for all meals,We also enjoyed walking through the surrounding farmland and vineyards as well as riding to the canal de midi. Claudia is very welcoming and generous with lots of small touches that made us feel so at home - we will be back as it was the most perfect relaxing holiday we have had in years

A wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property, it has been charmingly renovated, and the grounds are beautiful and peaceful. Claudia has thought of everything, so our stay was very comfortable. We definitely hope to return! There is much to see and do in the area, but relaxing by the pool is also a strong draw.

The best French countryside experience!

  • 5 of 5

I spent nearly a week at Le Trabet and could not recommend a place any more! The property is absolutely gorgeous and furnished with taste, the owners are kind and extremely invested in the property and making sure guests have the best stay possible, and the nearby towns are accessible and quaint. There is enough to do both on and outside the property (not to mention a great pool!). Stay here if you want to truly experience countryside France!
