 Review June 2016 on Trip Advisor

"Situated in the main street of Montlaur the tall immaculate village house stands out bedecked with colourful hanging baskets on each level.Inside ,it is spacious, comfortable and thoughtfully fitted out to a high standard for guests.The terrace is a delight with the most comfortable loungers we have ever sat on!
The owners Felicity and Peter were extremely helpful, warm and friendly and definitely contributed to our positive feelings about our stay in Montlaur.
The area is rich and diverse and there are many activities for travellers to enjoy- quiet scenic walks, thrilling cycle rides and beautiful rivers to swim in - just to mention a few! Lagrasse, nearby, is one of the most beautiful towns in France and is worth visiting and of course the magic of Carcassone endures -  it is spectacular.
In our opinion this is a place to which you will want to return."

" We are sad to leave such a beautiful village, the comfortable, cosy house and the idyllic scenery around Montlaur . We enjoyed shopping daily at Philippe's shop, the trips to Lagrasse, Carcassonne, Fontfroide. and the Cathar chateau at Peyrpreteuse. Thankyou for thw useful advice on which places were worth saeeing and the welcoming atmosphere in Montlaur."
