We will be your guides in helping to discover this fantastic region. Although the property has been renovated entirely, it retains many original features. It offers five very comfortable guest rooms, as well as one holiday rental home. Enjoy a rich breakfast with traditional delicacies, served either in the breakfast room, bathing in the morning sunlight, or in the garden.

Our property is located at the crossroads of some of the largest wine regions of France, among which most famously: the Corbières, Minervois, Razès, Limoux (Blanquette de Limoux), Malpère and Cabardès regions. There many more local delicacies to be enjoyed, such as a 'cassoulet', some 'foie gras', 'magret de canard', truffles, or something sweeter, perhaps, like the nougat of Limoux.
