We have holidayed in and around Carcassonne for many years and come to love this land with it's history,olive trees and vibrant colours. The house which we originally stayed in at Carcassonne is no longer available for renting but we have a new holiday cottage to share with you. La Chapelle is located in the small of Brenac just outside Quillan.

What happens is that the owners, Simon & Martina have separated halkf of the lower floor to make a cosy and comfortable retreat for couples. The picture below shows the whole house and you can read more about La Chapelle here.
