25 minutes south of Carcassonne, your accommodation is in the Razès Gîtes, buried in the heart of the rolling Razès countryside in the sleepy village of Escueillens.
Ideally located in a rural village, guests have the opportunity to slow down and re-discover a sense of peace and calm while gently absorbing the sights and sounds of nature all around.
What you'll find
There are four gîtes at Razès – Soujeole, Corbières, Malepère and La Cour du Blé - all four are suitable for short stays or long lets. Soujeole, Corbières and Malepère gîtes are ideally suited for singles or couples; La Cour du Blé offers accommodation for four people.
Each gîte has its own private entrance, parking, fully equipped kitchen, dining and lounge areas, double bed, single bed and bath and/or shower room.
There are several secluded gardens offering areas of shelter from or full exposure to the sun, perfect for your outdoor dining or relaxation; all conducive to quietly snoozing away your cares, keeping you tucked safely away from the outside world.
Each gîte has been carefully fashioned from the original wine-making vignoble and barns and thus has unique ambiance and rustic character. All four gîtes have been modernised for greater comfort during your stay, whatever the duration or the time of year.
Each gîte has a double bed and single bed, bath or shower room, well equipped kitchen, dining and lounge area with TV, DVD and CD player. Full linen and towels are provided at no extra charge. The gîtes have heating for those who prefer to sojourn outside the summer months.
A collection of books and music is kept within each gîte as well as an up-to-date supply of local information on events taking place in and around the Aude département. A large and continually expanding selection of films, and local books on Cathar castles are also available upon request. Our extensive range of detailed road and walking maps are kept in the grange.
