WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 great weeks with our wonderful hosts, Agathe and Jean-Noel. One of the weeks we had another couple staying with us. The apartment, La Source, was LARGE and fully decorated and set up for a nice stay. Bedrooms were large, Bathroom (with separate toilet) also large.

Kitchen fully equipped and has everything you need to make any meal.

Our hosts were perfect, they live on property and are available for all your needs but never intrusive. We enjoyed chatting with them and a few evenings sharing a glass of wine before dinner!

Another bonus is that Jean-Noel has a wide range of local wines for sale at very competitive prices.

This is one of the best Gites we have stayed in and, if ever in the area again, will stay at this wonderful place.

Owner's Response: The Languedoc wine region perhaps represents one of the best in France (or in the world) for quality/price these days. Thank you for your comments. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return visit!

Family Road Trip to the South of France

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Domaine de Cure on the Monday evening after a very long drive from Scotland to be met by the friendliest, most hospitable Jean-Noël and Agathe. Our stay there over the next 5 days was extremely pleasant and relaxing. The Gite was immaculate with such attention to detail, and our hosts were always on hand to share any local knowledge (and wine) and to direct us wherever we planned to go. Nothing was too much trouble. A few nights were spent sharing the company of both the hosts and the other residents which enhanced our holiday. I would highly recommend this property and fully intend to return some day. Angie F

Gorgeous setting, very clean, helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very happy week here with our 2 boys who loved the pool and exploring the area. Lots of lovely walks, castles and pretty villages. It was lovely to retreat back to the calm of the gite and enjoy an evening BBQ. Jeal-Noel and Agathe couldn't be more helpful. The gite itself is clean and modern on the inside while the traditional stone building keeps it beautifully cool.

Early spring getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a couple of nights at Domaine de Curé as a side trip during business travel. While no one could predict the weather, I lucked out to have mild, sunny days - perfect for visiting nearby attractions like Carcasonne. Closer to Domaine de Curé, it was lovely to walk around the country roads next to the vineyards. Agathe and Jean-Noel gave me detailed recommendations for day trips, including a nice hike along the nearby Canal du Midi.

I was able to stock up on food at nearby grocery stores and Jean-Noel had some excellent (and cheap!) local wines for sale to complement my meals. I can see this being a wonderful summer vacation spot, though I appreciated being in the minority as a tourist in the low season!

Owner's Response: Taking advantage of the quietness with less crowds and high prices, the off season does have advantages and let's you see this beautiful region in a different light. Thank you for your visit and comments.

Perfect staging post - Carcassonne & Canal du Midi

  • 5 of 5

Delightful stay in a beautiful gite and well looked after by Jean-Noel and Agathe who proved to be helpful, friendly and informative. They've clearly worked hard to create a terrific location - peaceful but well positioned for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside.

The gite was well equipped, spacious and thoughtfully planned out. The whole experience was a complete pleasure and we were so fortunate to have had the benefit of early autumn colours but hot and sunny days.

Owner's Response: The off season does offer an alternative from the "hustle and bustle" peak tourist season. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your nice comments. Hope to see you again.

Very welcoming and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four, which included our two girls aged 12 and 3, we spent two very relaxing and enjoyable weeks at Domaine de Cure in July 2015.

Our hosts Jean-Noel and Agathe welcomed us on our arrival and went through the basic rules and requirements for our stay, this was nothing too excessive but ensured respect was provided to all guests and the accomodation. The gite was well equiped, clean and spacious providing everything we needed for our two week holiday. The gardens and pool provided adequate space for us to relax without being overly intrusive to our neighbours.

The location of Domaine de Cure was excellent, remotely quiet enough but only a short drive to Carcassonne and some wonderful nearby villages. We travelled also to the beaches at Narbonne which was only a 45 min drive, La Franqui beach was particularly pleasant.

Our host were always on hand to offer advice on excursions, local restaurants and nearby shopping, We also took advantage of Jean-Noel's locally sourced wine which in general we found to be very good.

We would have no hesitation in staying here again.
