francisb This place is a lovely old half-timbered house on a hilltop among rolling fields and vineyards. Great views, very peaceful and comfortable. The food in the adjoining restaurant is excellent. It's far away from the nearest city, so it makes a great getaway. Friendly, efficient, completely bilingual service.

miralu A very good experience: the owner is more than helpful with pick-up at the station or with good ideas for unique restaurants, sites to see when travelling in the country side etc. The guesthouse is clean, nicely decorated and calm. It is ideally placed to visit the medieval city by foot.
sisca739 We came across Maison de Laura on Travellerspoint at the last minute after missing out on accomodation in Avignon during festival time. We are so glad we did it has been the best accomodation we have stayed in in the past two months of travelling Asia and Europe. Pauline and Wally were fantastically hospitable and made us feel like we have known them before we got here. They picked us up from Carcassone and drove us back to have a look at the walled city. There acccomodation is set in a little village out of city of Carcassone (much nicer than staying within the city itself -best value for money in France too). It is very flexible, you can either have your meals cooked (for approx 5euro) or cook your own! You feel very at home here. We would definately come back here, it would be very affordable to come for a French holiday from NZ if we stayed for a week or more!! Thanks for a refreshing break.

johnwatson Staff nice, friendly and helpfull. Breakfast selection good. Room cramped - nowhere to put open suitcase had to put it inside large wardrobe, also no tea/coffee making facilities in room just a machine in the lobby. Plus side - excellent parking (was able to stay whole of next morning) and easy walking distance to La Cite, so I'd return.

barryhughe Sidsmums is a great base from which to explore this area south of Carcassonne, Preixan is a charming sleepy little village, not much going on but then that's part of it's appeal Jim the cat is unpredicatable, one minute he'll let you stroke him, the next he'll try to scratch you! :D George the dog is more reliable ;) The walk from Preixan to Rouiffiac d'Aude is lovely, all you can hear is crickets everywhere and cuckoos in the distance as you walk along the road with vineyards either side of you :) There's also a walk you can take on the other side of Preixan, up a laneway which goes up quite high, wonderful views of the Pyrenees, especially from the Watchtower (ask Jan) ;) Would definitely stay there again Barry (Dublin, Ireand) May 2010
trionahen Lovely hotel for the price we paid! Excellent location-in the middle of old and new city-walking distance everywhere! Staff were extrememly helpful with everything. Breakfast was really good with loads of choice comparing to other hotels! Very clean and well kept! Room was a little small but really didn't bother us! Little dated but full of character!Would go back here without hesitation. (Ireland, June 2009).

james.bars We booked 5 days at the Castel Enchante to explore the area for possible relocation. We we`re greeted by Julie (the owner) who was a great help from the word go! Our stay couldn`t of been more comfortable,maybe apart from the weather it was amazingly hot that week! She advised us on all the places to go and see aslo arranged meetings with people for us to view propertys. All in all she was a great help and we couldn`t of found anywhere without her.

jlamarre We found this guest house as a recommendation on Travellerspoint. The booking process was simple, and the owners (Meei and Richard) were very welcoming when we arrived. They gave us a map and oriented us to the city's highlights including a couple of nearby restaurants. The location (in the downtown Bastide Saint Louis area) is excellent and while the services are basic (twin beds, simple furnishings, shared bathroom), the price and value for money can't be beat! We also really enjoyed the delicious French breakfast of pastries, juice and coffee or tea that Meei served us every morning.

lluish This hotel is located near both the SNCF station and the Medieval Cité (10 mn walk from the station to the hotel, 15 mn walk from the hotel to the Cité). The premises are very clean, and the room was confortable and well equipped. Ensuite bathroom was complete although rather small. My room was equipped with a LCD TV-Set and a ceiling fan, was quiet and had plenty of sunlight from the window. The furniture and decorations were rather old but nice. The staff at the reception was very kind and helpful, and provided me with a city map and some useful suggestions. The only thing I missed was a lift. Overall, a pleasant stay.
