This wonderful village house in the centre of beautiful Conques-sur-Orbiel sleeps seven people in three double rooms. It's ideal for groups or families looking for a base within easy reach of the Canal du Midi and the old city of Carcassonne (just 8km to the south). Patti, the owner, is a leisure cyclist and she's keen to see more riders use the house. There's a ground floor storage room for bikes, plus a ladies' Pashley and a men's mountain bike available for guest use. There are bike routes for all abilities from the door – gentle backroads down to the Canal du Midi and the vineyard routes of the Aude, but also the Black Mountains or the Pic de Nore (1211m) for something more challenging. The village itself dates back to early medieval times and still has a ruined chateau at its heart. More modern treats include a village brocante, restaurants, bolaungerie and a greengorcer selling local cheeses and produce. All told, The Little French Maison is an base from which to experience local French culture while still being within easy reach of all the key tourist hotspots.
