Carcassonne house description

The Convent of the Sainte Famille became a family home with opulent atmosphere. The seven people who will choose to stay there for one night or several weeks, will share 280 sq.m. on two floors, full of charm and authenticity. The convent is comfortably equipped in order to accommodate you in couple, family or friends. We made special attention to the interior with antique furniture and elegant décor.

The master bedroom (bed 140) offers 30 square meters and has its own bathroom. The Rose Room (double bed in 140 and 90) leaves 30 m² undeniable charm of its old tapestries, and the room Linden (bed 140 and 90) of 22m ² with its plush and authentic black marble fireplace.

The former chapel, converted in a bathroom with relaxing spa bath and shower, exposes you its original stained glass that hints of light through its bright colours.

Lounge - dining room of 40 m² opens the doors to a private terrace, trees and flowers, with a barbecue. The large modern fully equipped kitchen and will introduce you to local flavours of Aude. A private parking space is reserved for you. Enjoy free Internet, large flat screen with numerous international channels, DVD player and mini hi-fi system, documentation on tours and activities nearby.

We occupy the parsonage, on the same domain, and welcome you at home. We will advise various ballads, discoveries, sites and restaurants. As the two buildings are connected, you can enjoy the garden closed by ancient fortifications, facing south and shaded by century-old Laurel and Linden. Enjoy the summer atmosphere around the pool, summer kitchen and fruit garden scents of lavender.

              About the owner: We live with our son in the rectory adjoining the convent. This area is too big for us, we want to share this heritage rich in history to visitors from all backgrounds. Native of Carcassonne, we will make you love of our region, its history, its land and its food! Passionate by human contact, we work in hostelery at the same time, we love to share evenings with new friends, meet and experience new cultures, renting the Convent allows us to share with our guests, to create new links and to flourish. Our son, Anthony, born June 2009, grew up in a International family, the must for learning languages and cultures! Share our life during your stay in Cathar Country !

              Why the Owner Chose Carcassonne:
              As the Convent was adjacent to our domain, we bought it and decide to rent it in order to make people able to know and visit our nice cathar'country.
