The cottage here at Chez Dyna is close to Carcassonne and is in a village set amongst the vinyards.
Our village of Alaigne is just half an hour from Carcassonne and is in the heart of the Malepere vinyards, and is set midway between the medieval city and Rennes-Le-Chateau, centre of the holy grail mysteries.
An excellent base to explore the history on foot, by bike or car we can arrange superb quality cycle rental (including electrically assisted) and also pony treking in the local vineyards

The catalyst for our life in France and the name of our Chambres d'Hotes was our classic French car, a 1951Dyna Panhard. In fact, the actual car shown at the London Motor show in October 1951
A weekend visit to friends from the Panhard Car Club who live near Lagrasse initiated a love affair with the area and we purchased a house in Limoux that very weekend. Four years later, again during a weekend visit, we discovered the house that was to become Chez Dyna. It was love at first sight despite the extensive work that was obviously necessary to restore this once maison de maitre back to a comfortable and elegant home. Impulsive as ever we agreed to buy the house that weekend. That was in 2004 with us moving here permanently in 2005. We have lovingly restored the house over a 5 year period and our enthusiasm both for the house and the village has not waned. Since opening as a Chambres d'Hotes three years ago we have met many interesting people from different countries. It is a pleasure to share our home and to share stories over a glass or two of wine.
Since living here and with the invaluable help of our son Neil, we have added a little cottage and more recently transformed an old forge into a georgous appartment for those who prefer self catering holidays.
