Holiday Cottage at Maison de Laura
|Address||Rue de la Paichere, 11600 Salsigne, Carcassonne, Aude, France|
Maison de Laura is situated in a valley surrounded by vineyards in the village of Salsigne 20 minutes north of Carcassonne in the foothills of the Montagne Noir. The village has a local shop selling most items including fresh bread and croissants. There is also a post office and a wine cave. The area is steeped in history and there are many places to see and visit. From Maison de Laura you are within walking distance of the Cathar Castles of Lastours. A short drive away are the Grotto de Limousis and the amazing underground safari of the Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine (a gorge inside a mountain deep enough to hold the Eiffel Tower), The Cascade de Cupservies (the longest drop waterfall in Europe), not to mention - wonderful vineyards, great French restaurants and amazing scenery. It is ideal for walking holidays as we are in the heart of the countryside.
You can swim in our pool directly opposite your gîte, There are two lakes both with beaches, one in the nearby Montagnes Noir and one is near Carcassonne. This one has boating facilities and both have life guards in attendance. The Canal du Midi offers boat trips and you can walk or cycle along the canal. In Carcassonne on a Saturday there is a market selling local produce and often there is live music which all adds to the atmosphere.
There are several good restaurants in the area and the one at Lastours ”Le Puits du Tresor” has a Michelin star. Conques sur Orbiel has a superb restaurant and pizzeria.
There are many fine and reasonably priced restaurants in and around Carcassonne and in the walled city itself. We are in the well known wine region of Minervois with plenty of caves to visit locally.
We are 30 minutes from the historical walled city of Carcassonne, 1 hour to the Mediterranean Sea, 2 hours to the Pyrenees Mountains, 1.15 hours to Toulouse 1.30 to Albi and 15 min. to the Black Mountains. We are situated right in the heart of the Cathar country.
We expect you to leave the gite as you found it or 50 euros for cleaning will be charged.
The pool is available for your use but may also be enjoyed by family or other persons who are staying in the B&B

The gite was very well appointed, with nice little extras like some wood for the fire, a welcome meal and wine, and little things like foil and washing powder. The hosts were very welcoming, and gave us good tips about where to go, and what to see, but left us to our own devices too. We had a lovely day just sat on the terrace in the pretty and well landscaped garden, as well as trips out to Albi, Toulouse and Carcassonne. My wife and I felt very welcome and very much enjoyed our stay - we'd recommend it without hesitation.
To be a great experience to be there!! The property was everything they promised, very spacious, very quiet and comfortable. There I would have also endured much longer, of a possible 10 I give 11! My hosts were just great, polite and courteous. Thank you so much for that, I will be back!
Ein großartiges Erlebnis dort zu sein !!!! Die Unterkunft hielt alles was sie versprach, sehr geräumig, sehr ruhig und komfortabel. Dort hätte ich es auch noch länger ausgehalten, von 10 möglichen Punkten gebe ich 11!!!
Meine Gastgeber waren einfach toll, höflich und stets zuvorkommend. Habt vielen Dank dafür, ich werde wiederkommen !!!
Wij hebben een hele leuke vakantie gehad in de gite. Het huisje had alles wat we ons maar wensen konden. De gastheer en gastvrouw verwelkomden ons erg vriendelijk en ook de hele week lang stonden ze voor ons klaar. We hebben zelf in Amsterdam een boot Anna Maria II waar we op B&Ben en we hopen dat ze ons een keer komen opzoeken als ze in de buurt zijn. Lijkt ons erg leuk.
We willen jullie heel erg bedanken voor jullie gastvrijheid.
Liefs Dave, Marianne en Lara
