    Fantastic holiday rental!

    Chemin Cottage had everything we needed. It's very well located for the surrounding area, Carcassonne Citadel is only half an hour away with spectacular views on the drive there.The property was clean and well equipped, wi-fi was excellent (a rarity in our experience)
    Bridget & Paul were great hosts, providing lots of information and always on hand when needed.
