You may recall Maison Laurent, with its beautiful rooms and wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. Well, we hope we have created something just as special in our new home. 

Brézilhac is one of the Razés villages, situated between Limoux, Carcassonne and Mirepoix in the newly-titled Occitanie region (formerly Languedoc-Roussillon) of south west France. The views are nothing short of spectacular at every turn, during all seasons of the year. We have built a cottage called Le Petit Cinq and here you can live your dream. Take time to capture the colours of the vineyards and mountains on canvas, trek through the countryside without meeting another soul and savour the local produce to create and share your own feast.

The cottage is designed to welcome just four people to cater for themselves luxuriously. There are two comfortable bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and an impressively-equipped kitchen giving onto a dining area and comfortable salon. Air conditioning provides sanctuary from the heat of summer and you will appreciate a wood burning stove after a day’s tramp through autumn forests. An outside dining terrace overlooks the gardens and swimming pool.

These hilly villages no longer sport their own bar, boulangerie or pharmacy but we are well-served within a few kilometres by Montreal, Fanjeaux and Bram. A little further afield lie the ancient towns of Limoux, Carcassonne and Mirepoix and the entire region offers an arresting schedule of markets, castles, mountains, lakes, beaches and oh so many vineyards to visit. You should bring a car and stout boots and be prepared for adventure.

If you have already been charmed by this corner of France, visit us again to relax and unwind in comfort and privacy. Take time to enjoy the glories of its history and culture; drive to the coast to eat oysters and watch the flamingoes. Create memories. Live well.

Our aim was for Le Petit Cinq to be ready to embrace guests from mid-July 2017, but sometimes these things take a little longer. For further information please contact us at

À bientôt
