About the property

Chez-Georges is a very well-appointed 19th century 2-bedroom 2-story stone house, owner-operated since 2007, prepared with the finest local antiques and attention to architectural detail and comfort.

The house is a great place to come home to after visiting the area's many attractions. We are close to the 6 magnificent Cathare castles that highlight our area - and close to some of the finest wineries in Southern France, in an area offering antiquities, meandering walks, hiking and cycling for all - from a well-situated home base.

We are close enough to all the things you'll want to see, but yet far enough removed, so you can enjoy the relaxing country life that France presents.

The house is a converted stone barn with 160 square meters on two floors – downstairs with the kitchen, eating, and sitting areas that lead out to a fenced lawn/garden and patio. The twin-bedded bedroom and bathroom with walk-in shower complete the ground floor. The large private and fenced garden off the main floor invites outdoor dining, balmy summertime BBQ's, and great games of croquet!

Upstairs is the great room, featuring white marble floors in a floor-to-ceiling glass-walled living room that overlooks the garden, with the raised master bedroom overlooking all, all complimented with a luxurious en-suite bath, that features a large soaker tub and shower.

We are proud to offer Chez-Georges to you, and to have been designated as a 'recommended place to stay', by “TopRural” and Flip Key websites after receiving top 5-star ratings from virtually all our guests.

We are pleased to offer the complimentary use of a GPS during your stay, (so you can find you way home after your day of exploring) and will have a welcome package for you on arrival, to save you running to the supermarket after your busy travel day.

About JP McConnell

We are retired Canadians from Vancouver who bought here in 2001, and then bought again to participate in the gite business.

JP McConnell purchased this house in 2006

Why JP McConnell chose Courtauly

The house is brilliant - not the normal French gite property. It was built in 2001 to current day standards - in the conversion of an 18th century barn, with lots of light - marble and terracotta flooring, and a comfortable selection of furnishings. All you need bring is your toothbrush...

What makes this house unique

We provide a 'welcome pack' for your arrival - bread, milk, coffee, tea, yogurt, fruit, ham, cheese, flowers, wine, and blanquette so you don't have to shop in the midst of getting here. We also do specialized shopping for guests on request.

Peace and tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

What a haven! Peace and tranquility where all you hear is the sounds of nature and a churchbell to remind you that you are in the world.

Beautifully decorated house with all amenities, helpful landlords, good wine, what more could anyone want? Conveniently close to two towns Mirepoix with its market and Limoux with its hypermarche and all in a nostalgic landscape of the Cathars!

Thank you Alix & JP for sharing your home.

Très bonne vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans le gite.

JP nous a très bien accueillis avec en plus des petites surprises à notre arrivée.

La maison est très propre, au calme et le grand jardin était parfait pour les enfants.

Il y a pas mal d’activités à faire aux alentours (accrobranche/ parc de jeux gonflables et baignade au lac de Montbel) et d’autres Jolis sites à visiter(Mirepoix/Limoux).

Nous sommes ravis de cette location.

Merci encore à JP

One of the biggest attractions nearby are the Cathare Castles that tower over this area of France. All are reachable, some easy, some not, but all are spectacular.

For the less adventuresome, there is a village market every morning of the week in villages nearby to give you the real French market experience, always providing you with fresh provisions.
