LA SOUQUETO BED AND BREAKFAST
La Souqueto offers Bed and Breakfast
The atmosphere at La Souqueto is relaxed and friendly and there is plenty to stimulate body, mind and senses.
Breakfast is copious and homemade, often including a seasonal treat.
The libraries, art and bright artists' studio provide oodles of artistic inspiration and there is a roof terrace and small patio for private relaxation.
Rooms are pretty and toiletries, hairdryers and fluffy towels are provided and there is free internet access (with printer attached) as well as free parking next door.
We can accommodate up to 10 adults in 5 double bedrooms (3 doubles and 2 twins). There are 3 bathrooms and towels and toiletries are provided.
Evening meals are available by arrangement but there are also two restaurants within walking distance (one almost nextdoor and one overlooking the river). The village also has swimming, petanque, tennis, fishing and horseriding facilities.
ATTRACTIONS AND FACILITIES
You can swim in the sparkling clean river (La Cesse) or its reservoir (La Garenne) behind the house, and sea and beaches are within 30 minutes drive (with possibilities of kite- and windsurfing).
Canal du Midi, is a short walk
Hiking (both gentle and rigorous) can be done along nearby gorges...
We are also conveniently located for visits to Cathar strongholds and medieval towns as well as fashionable cities for shopping and sightseeing... (Narbonne and Beziers are within 20 minutes whilst Montpellier, Perpignan and Carcassonne are all about 1 hour by car.)
Mirepeisset is surrounded by interesting foodie destinations many of which welcome visitors for guided tours, tastings and demonstrations.... An active olive press (where you can sample the different oils and olives)... an award-winning, exquisitely located, goats-cheese farm where you can see goats being milked and cheeses being made... a passionate beekeeper where you can taste 12 completely unique honeys... a traditional artisan baker who might let you try your hand at making bread... and many good restaurants... The area is of course scattered with many dedicated winemakers that still make their wines by hand, and Narbonne's covered food-market rivals the Boqueria in Barcelona.
An hour's drive will get you to quaint fishing villages, the winery of the famous Noilly Prat Vermouth (indispensable for making a risotto or beurre blanc), the salt pans of Gruissan and the oysterbeds of Bouzigues... And in winter, the ski slopes are a mere one and a half hours away.
On the artistic side there is also plenty to keep you busy: one of the world's most renowned patchwork museums can be found in a village nextdoor to Mirepeisset (Sallèles d’Aude), and there are impressive modern art galleries in Bages, near Narbonne and in Lezignan. Narbonne's modern theatre offers a daily changing list of events ranging from classic and experimental plays to concerts by artists from all around the world.

If you come from direction Perpignan on the A9 take exit 38 (Narbonne Sud), then the N9 towards Beziers. At the third roundabout take a left (D607> to Marcorignan and continue all the way straight for about 12 kms, then turn right to Mirepeisset. We are in the centre of the village behind the restaurant La Taverna and there is a carpark on the right of the restaurant.
If you take the A9 from Montpellier, take exit 36 (Castres, Mazamet). Turn right towards Castres, Mazamet, St. Pons then continue until the turn-off towards MONTADY (the 4th turn-off). At the T-junction turn left and follow the road all the way straight for 23 kms, then turn left almost immediately after Argeliers (the sign reads Truilhas). 2 kms later you’ll see a signpost, turning right for Mirepeisset centre village. We are behind the restaurant La Taverna and there is a carpark on the right of the restaurant.
If you come from Carcassonne, don't take the Autoroute - the D610 (the direct road from Carcassonne to Beziers, which becomes the D11 later on) is by far the easiest way. To get onto this road, first follow the green sign for Narbonne, then look out for the sign for Tr èbes on the left, which brings you to the D610. Keep going straight Beziers on that route. After Pouzols take a right at the big roundabout (towards St Marcel), then left at the next signpost for Mirepeisset. We are behind the restaurant La Taverna and there is a carpark on the right of the restaurant.
Mirepiesset is close to Autoroute exits at Narbonne (20 minutes) at which there is a motorail terminal. International airports are at Toulouse (90 mins), Barcelona (135 mins), Montpellier (90 mins) and Carcassonne (45 mins - to which RyanAir fly daily from London Stansted, Bournemouth, Brussels, Cork, Dublin, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Shannon). Eurostar, from Waterloo, London connects at Lille or Paris with TGV direct to Narbonne.
