Félicie sits by a big fig tree in the garden, the older, more dignified sister of Violette, 20 metres away. Dating from 1871, she once had an illustrious career as the home of a circus ringmaster.
In both salon and sleeping area, her décor is 19th-century with bits of recent noughties zing - greens and pinks in the bedroom, a discreet heater, and fabulous wallpaper - that complement the original dark wooden fittings. Next to the swimming pool, in the former cloister of what was once a priory, your separate private bathroom has the same attention to detail. The shower used to be the stone base of a fountain, the tiles date from long ago.
Table d’hôte dinners are prepared from organic ingredients, most from the estate itself or nearby, so no need to venture out - a good thing, as bars and restaurants are a drive. Thespians descend in summer for fun, games and Molière on the lawn. Explore medieval Mirepoix (“delicious!” says Dolores) or visit fairytale Carcassonne.
