The space

En Croustet is an old farmhouse which has kept it's traditional look while preparing a greener future, solar panels for electricity and hot water and a wood burning boiler.
Our natural swimming pool is an integral part of the garden all year round .
Situated in the foot hills of the "Montain Noire", facing south with the Pyrénées on the horizon, the large garden has barbecues, swings and a pond with fish and tadpoles.
In between the two airports of Carcassonne(30Km) and Toulouse(50Km), it's an ideal base for visiting the Pays Cathar.
This relaxing country location is an ideal center for walking, cycling or visiting places like Castelnaudary for the cassoulet, Carcassonne for the magnificent medieval city, and lake St.Ferreol source of the canal du midi and a summer time favorite for picnics and water sports.
We have two gites, the "Mésanges" that can accommodate four people.
And the "Loriots" accommodates for six people. They are both bright functional flats that we are sure will help you have a good break in this wonderful region

Chris and Brigitte are super hosts! We spent the last day of our trip with them and it was the perfect place to end our journey. Comfortable, quiet, and relaxing. They have such a beautiful home that it is impossible to feel stressed, even if you have had a long journey. Thank you so much!

This is a beautiful, peaceful, charming place to stay surrounded by delightful countryside. The natural pool for swimming with the nearby pond of frogs and reeds captivated us all and the hosts, Chris and Brigitte were so welcoming and warm. The animals were a wonderful bonus for our pet-starved daughter. We sat in the warm, summery garden with our hosts through the evening and unwound over dinner and wine. It's 10 minutes to Castelnaudary and their famous Cassoulet. This is a unique airbnb experience, well worth a longer stay than our overnight!

Beautiful location, lovely gite, warm and welcoming hosts. If it's hot, a swim in the 'nature pool' is recommended! Lots of animals about, including friendly dog.

Chris and Brigittes' place is a wonderful opportunity to experience what makes rural France to magical. The area is absolutely beautiful and the loudest sound is the frogs in the pond. Be aware that the village is small, with no shops or restaurants so you will need to bring any supplies with you.

What a wonderful place to stay! Our hosts were very kind and friendly, and generously gave us herbs and olive oil to use. The natural pool was very welcome after a long hot day travelling, and the house was cool and comfortable. Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

Chris and Brigitte are the uncle and aunt you wish you had, who just so happen to live in the spectacular countryside of Southern France. They are generous with their time, wise, and very helpful to travelers! We changed our plans at their suggestion and saw things we wouldn't have otherwise. We also fell in love with their border collie (who we let sleep with us, which helped quell our longing for our dogs back in the States), their cats, the horses across the street...this is the classic airbnb experience, where you pop into someone's world and meet new friends. Chris and Brigitte, visit us in the States whenever you'd like!
