Wonderful way to see in the New Year in a beautiful, comfortable house in this historic village.
— Ann, Chris & Angela. UK

“Wonderful way to see in the New Year in a beautiful , comfortable house in this historic village. Spectacular meal on New Year’s Eve at Métairie Montplaisir with old and new friends. Explored Carcassonne Cité, Cathar Castles, Perpignon and Mirepoix with its lovely square. And so much else to do! We will be back to stay in Patti’s delightful house.”


The history of this place seeps up from the stones under your feet
— Fiona. UK

“Oranges in the snow! The wild winds from the Black Mountains and the warmth of chestnut logs. Red roofs and cobbled streets. The history of this place seeps up from the stones under your feet. Looking forward to returning and exploring the past battles and buildings which make the story of this place. And all of this can be done from this beautifully renovated village house which looks out from Conques across the mountains - well done Patti!”
