Read what recent guests say about Le Petit RÍve:

"We enjoyed our authentic French living experience in the town of Castelnau at this cute house. It was in a perfect location to visit the historic sites like Carcassonne and Peyreperteuse and quaint neighboring towns. We especially enjoyed the nearby Canal du Midi with its walking/biking path and its many wonderful waterside restaurants."
--Pam and Harvey Goss, USA, June 2012

"Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Le Petit Rêve offered us peace and calm, which was just what we were looking for."
--Joanne Walmsley, Canada, August 2012

"The peace we found in your home was wonderful. The fireplace, the people -- what more can anyone want out of life? And Roland and Anne-Marie's wine is superb."
--Jane and Bill McElhiney, USA, November 2010

"The 'Petit RÍve' is charming and we feel very much at home sitting in the kitchen sipping some of Anne-Marie and Roland's wine -- excellent! It has been a memorable experience."
--Barbara and Jose Canella, Canada, October 2010

"We very much enjoyed our stay at Le Petit Rêve. We did most of the excursions you suggested -- thanks for those! The girls quite enjoyed the cave at Cabrespine, the medieval show at Carcassonne and the beach at Gruissan. We had dinner one evening at Minerve, and we enjoyed a long walk along the Canal du Midi (my personal favourite). Your house is delightful."
--Charlotte Cloutier, Canada, August 2009

"Congrats on buying and setting up the place to be a welcome site for visitors to France. We had a great time and enjoyed your place. We went down south as far as Perpignan, got out to the beaches of Leucate Plage and Narbonne-Plage, Carcassonne, Montpellier and other attractions. We will be in contact regarding a follow-up booking!"
--Neil and Sue Shay, USA, September 2009

"We have to thank you so much for allowing us to be your guests there. We had a ball and the house is the perfect getaway, but yet it is so easily accessible for doing things: sightseeing, scenic driving, beach, etc."
--Ruth Stephenson, Ireland, September 2009

"We have enjoyed our stay at your house ... we took your advice and visited Chateau Cavanac, Auberge de l'Arbousier, En Bonne Compagnie and the Abbaye de Fontfroide. Carcassone we like almost as much as Venice. Thanks for letting us use your home."
--Lindsay Milne, Spain, October 2008

"Le Petit RÍve -- a little dream house that provided us with a warm and comfortable base. Our holiday was a rich and warming experience that included visits to Lagrasse, Olonzac on market day, and a fairy-tale dinner at Chateau Cavanac ... our stay rekindled our connection with this beautiful and mysterious area."
--Chloe Fox Lambert and David Bowes-Musgrave, England, September 2008

--Lauren Klayman, USA, December 2007

"Just a quick note to say what a fantastic time we had in France. It really was completely brilliant; we both loved the house, the village, the area....got to see the Tour de France in Carcassonne, had some great meals, bike hire went perfectly. I can definitely see myself getting in touch in the future for a return visit. I'll certainly be encouraging all my friends to book up."
--Alex Deck, England, July 2006

"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my stay in Castelnau d'Aude. It was VERY quiet and tranquille. I had a wonderful time, and now I want a 'petit rêve' of my own!! I kept watching for 'à vendre' signs!"
--Karen Leveille, USA, March 2006

"Your house in Castelnau was lovely. The geographic location was marvellous - right in the middle of Carcasonne, Narbonne, Beziers, Minerve, Lagrasse, and the Canal du Midi - perfect for day trips."
--Jekhan Aruliah, England, August 2005
