Converted Gite nr. Carcassonne, Limoux Aude, Languedoc, France - Quiet, Peaceful With The Benefit Of A Village Location - Complete With Bakery/Shop And Café/Bar
- english, french
The catalyst for our life in France and the name of our Chambres d'Hotes was our first classic French car, a 1951 Dyna Panhard. In fact, the actual car which was shown at the London Motor show in October 1951 Chez Dyna was love at first sight despite the extensive work that was immediatly necessary !. We have lovingly restored the house over a 5 year period and our enthusiasm both for the house and our village has not waned. Since opening as a Chambres d'Hotes three years ago we have met many interesting people from different countries. It is a pleasure to share our home and to share stories over a glass or two of wine. Recently we have added a little cottage, a small art gallery and transformed an old forge into a gorgeous apartment for those who prefer self catering holidays.

Comfortable and cosy
The property was spacious, well designed, clean and fully equipped - like home away from home. It was perfect for our group of 3. The town is safe. The property is close to the bakery, which is very convenient for a yummy breakfast of croissants and baguettes. The hosts, Geoff and Lyn, were helpful and friendly - very delightful. They provided restaurant & activities recommendations and even helped us deal with the post lady to send packages overseas. We had a wonderful stay there and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Chez Dyna benefits from being able to offer a location only half an hour from the bustling city of Carcassonne, but in a tranquil village set in the Malepere vinyards. The village boasts is own cafe - bar for dining or taking that early evening apero as well as having its own baker for those fresh croissants each morning.
It is a perfect location to relax before the days' exploration commences.
