Just for two - and a well behaved pet welcome - this simple 'maison bougie', a village cottage, has recently been renovated to provide light, bright, comfortable and chic accommodaton for two. Location is Labastide Esparbaïrenque, a perched village in La Montagne Noire, about 25km north of Carcassonne. It's got wifi, a kingsize bed, and a woodburner for cosy out-of-season breaks.

The gîte is fairly rural (as is most of the Languedoc) so to make the most of a visit to this region you'll need a car. You can book car hire in advance for collection at Carcassonne airport. The airport is about 20 mins from Villardonnel and 30 mins from Labastide, and is served by Ryanair only from a number of UK and European airports. You can drive here from Channel ports in 10 to 14 hours. We're about 1000km from Dieppe and Le Havre, 1150km from Calais. The easiest and cheapest driving route tends to be from Dieppe, so long as you can get a reasonably priced ferry ticket.
