About the property

A comfortable house with 2 rooms for visiting the Aude or go hiking


Welcome to Gite le Ronsard:



Located in the quiet village of Moussoulens, this charming cottage classified 2 * by CLEVACANCES since 2009 will seduce you with many assets such as its neat decoration or its location. At Gite le Ronsard you will feel at home to discover our beautiful region that is AUDE PAYS CATHARE.

For a relaxing or sporting holiday, a honeymoon or a cultural stay, or even for your work; for 2 or 5 people, Gite le Ronsard welcomes you, between the Black Mountain and Carcassonne and its Medieval City, where time suspends its flight. You will appreciate this "House beautiful, cozy, very nice, very well equipped and decorated ... we would like to stay ...." to quote one of our tenants.

Located just 10 minutes from Carcassonne, Gite le Ronsard enjoys an ideal location for holiday in the department of Aude: a mild climate all year long, picturesque landscapes very varied.




More than the charm of a natural setting that makes you dream, more than the hills and the local cuisine so tasty, more than the blue sky of the South of France, it is the facilities of the Gite le Ronsard that make this vacation rental so welcoming and so endearing.

Classified "furnished 2 * tourism" thanks to the work and efforts of the master of the place, the Gite le Ronsard is a holiday rental for 2 or 5 people, well decorated, and totally in harmony with the traditions and picturesque scenery of the region.

Gite le Ronsard is close to the most important heritage sites of Languedoc Roussillon like the city of Carcassonne or the Canal du Midi (classified by UNESCO). You can do many activities such as walking on the hiking trails, go swimming in the lakes of the Montagne Noire, visit the largest sites Toulouse, Albi, the Pyrenees, the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea ...

Whether you are a family with children, one or two couples, you can from the Gite le Ronsard go hiking in the scrubland, visit and discover the cultural richness of the Aude, go swimming in a lake of the Montagne Noire ... and in the evening tell your day to our neighbors sitting outside on a bench, especially Jacquie she loves it :-). Activities are not lacking in the Aude Cathar Country and I will do my best to help you discover our beautiful region.

The Gite le Ronsard combines the charm of various amenities to ensure unparalleled comfort of stay.

Bright living room / dining room with a ceiling height of 5m with exposed beams, large Scandinavian style 4 seater sofa, large dining table for 6 redecorated design cement tiles (coming soon :-)) welcome you from the outset , with flat screen TV, DVD player and CD and DVD library, Orange internet box for free WIFI or foreign channels.

A fully equipped American kitchen will delight gourmets. 1 warm and comfortable mezzanine room with 1 bed 160 * 200 for two people, the 2nd independent room with 2 beds 90 and a folding bed for children or a second couple will guarantee you quiet evenings in the living room while children sleep peacefully, bathroom with walk-in shower and separate toilet will necessarily meet the most demanding. Finally you can have a washing machine in the laundry room. Witness the photos of the slideshow above ...




From the beginning of its operation, that is to say in 2009 efforts have been made for your comfort. Starting with the CLEVACANCES tourism classification process: these efforts to promote the cottage have been recognized by this classification made by an independent body that ensures an objective rating every 3 years. Our rental is classified Furnished tourism 2 stars, a guarantee of the quality of our accommodation, recognized by the organization Atout-France, the very one who manages the ranking of hotels in France.

As a welcome, you will find on the living room table a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of local wine, or a jar of jam from the region homemade or artisanal ...




The most athletic can go hiking on the GR of the region, on the bikes you rented from our partner (possible delivery to the cottage), or ride equestrian from the equestrian center of the village. Indeed, much more than just a seasonal vacation rental, our goal is to do everything possible to simplify the organization of your stay and make it more enjoyable. I will be able to make you benefit from my knowledge of certain actors of the local tourism. Tourist documentation is available at the cottage. Board games are available at the cottage. If you want to go mountain biking accompanied and discover some trails, I would be happy to accompany you according to my availability

The cottage Le Ronsard is the ideal starting point for a multitude of outdoor activities:

- ATV rides on site (no need to take the car!)

- Fishing in the river Rougeanne 1 km

- Horseback riding 2 km

- Tennis at 5 km

- Rock climbing 25 km

- Canoeing 45 km away

- ... to name just a few sports activities ...

You can also enjoy your stay at Gite le Ronsard to discover the rich heritage nearby. We never tire of the spectacle offered by the City of Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, the ruins of Cathar castles, the cave of Limousis or the impressive sinkhole of Cabrespine ...

The geographical location of Gite le Ronsard also makes it the starting point towards the discovery of a thousand and one curiosities of the region. One thinks in particular of the proximity of Toulouse and its cultural potential, with Albi and its episcopal cathedral, with Castelnaudary and its cassoulet, with the beaches of the Mediterranean, with the mountain resorts of the Pyrenees, with Andorra for its zero-rated products, or the Nearby Spain, etc ...




Designed as a place of rest away from the tumult of the city, Gite le Ronsard is a bit like home, with the freedom and splendor of the Aude Cathar Country and more ...

Agréable petite maison de bourg

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable petite maison , joliment restaurée, bien équipée et fonctionnelle. Le village est très calme, facile d'accès et bien situé.

La région est idéale pour les balades dans les vignes et pour la visite des châteaux.Le propriétaire est très sympathique et les voisins charmants.

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour avec notre compagnon à 4 pattes qui était le bienvenu.

Le lave vaisselle était en panne à notre arrivée et n'a pas été réparé durant notre séjour.

Durant la semaine, entrée inondée suite à un orage durant une nuit. Ce risque est indiqué dans le règlement affiché dans l'entrée. Cependant, je pense que ce risque devrait être signalé lors de l'accueil par le propriétaire.

Pour le reste, logement acceptable et voisinage très sympathique.

Owner's Response: Le lave vaisselle est en effet tombé en panne la veille de votre arrivée, hélas, il n'était pas réparable (carte électronique de presque le cout du LV !). Celui ci a été changé aujourd'hui par un modèle neuf plus économique et plus silencieux ! De l'eau passe en effet parfois sous la porte d'entrée lors de gros orages, (les rues sont en pente), de là à parler d'inondation ??? Le terme est un peu exagéré je pense. Quoiqu'il en soit la porte d'entrée sera bientôt changée pour plus de confort, sécurité et isolation.

Buena ubicación, poco práctica

  • 3 of 5

El lugar es el ideal para descansar y desconectar, un pueblo pequeño rodeado de naturaleza y cercano a muchos puntos de interés. La casa poco práctica, para ir al baño hay que bajar hasta dos pisos, si no fuera por eso sería el lugar ideal. Propietarios encantadores y vecinos muy simpáticos. Fácil de aparcar. Días de descanso completos

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre appréciation, nos efforts pour embellir le gite le Ronsard en sont récompensé. Les WC sont indépendants de la salle de bain et situés au RDC comme indiqué dans l'annonce. Nous étudions en ce moment la solution de mettre un 2ème WC dans la SDB.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

C'est la troisième fois que nous venons dans ce site autant dire qu'il n'y a rien à redire! Le gîte est vraiment agréable, confortable et très bien entretenu, dans un petit village calme à seulement 10-15 minutes de la cité de Carcassonne. Entre amis ou en famille, c'est tout simplement un endroit que l'on peut réserver les yeux fermés ! Tout est conforme à la description du site et pour ceux qui veulent se détendre ou se rafraîchir, la piscine de Montolieu est à 5 minutes! Bref, c'est super !

buena localización

  • 3 of 5

Queríamos conocer carcassone, y esta nos parecía una buena opción.El pueblo es tranquilo y bonito , sin pretendiones, y la casa bastante cómoda salvo por el baño, que en un emplazamiento tenía la ducha y el lavabo, y en otro ( en el piso de abajo) el vater. Pudimos sin problemas llevar a nuestra perrita y es un lugar ideal para pasearla
