If you are looking for a relaxing, restful holiday near Carcassonne in sunny, southern France, look no further than our newly restored cottages.
We have two beautiful, self-catering holiday properties available for you and your family and friends, each with its own private garden. The cottages have shared use of a large, heated swimming pool with security fencing. The spacious, lawned grounds have plenty of room for the shaded children’s playground as well as other garden games, or you can escape to peaceful, secluded spots more suited to dozing and reading.
We completed the renovation and re-design of the interiors in 2011, transforming them into light, well-equipped and stylishly furnished holiday accommodation. Each cottage has two floors – the bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs have lovely views across the extensive 2.5 acres of walled gardens.
You can find more details and photographs of each cottage by clicking on the images below. Here is a short summary of the facilities you can enjoy when you stay with us:
- A large, open plan kitchen-dining-sitting room downstairs
- 2/3 double bedrooms upstairs
- Two bathrooms, one en-suite, one with full-size bath (plus a downstairs loo)

Our Guest Book
Wow! What can we say other than this beautiful place far exceeded our expectations! Your attention to detail is stunning and your knowledge of this amazing wine region is awesome. There is so much to enjoy within the grounds we found it hard to venture far afield, but there is so much to do in the surrounding area that we wished we had longer to explore.
We all had an absolutely amazing time – the water pistols in the pool certainly saw some action this week! Your attention to detail and wealth of knowledge about the area makes for a wonderful stay.
We have had a fantastic week. The gite is wonderful, as are the gardens and the pool. All the home comforts within such lovely surroundings!
What’s really made our holiday special is this great place: warm and friendly hosts and accommodation that is a real home from home (just a luxurious version!)
How fortunate we were to come across Domaine les Hirondelles. The accommodation is better than any gite/villa we have experienced before and everything has been thought of – particularly with regards to kids.
This is by far the best equipped accommodation we have visited in France, both inside and outside and the children loved it.
From day one we wanted to book again
