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.
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 fisfes 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

We stayed here for the last three nights of our holiday in southern France. We loved it. The gite is rustic and simple but has everything you need and the garden is amazingly beautiful and relaxing. We loved watching all the nature, there are dozens of frogs, tadpoles, dragonflies etc. The hosts, Chris and Bridgitte are very welcoming and lovely people as are their pets. We hope to return next year.

Chris and Brigitte are incredibly kind and generous hosts. Their farm is a treasure (and like a treasure, it is hard to find....see comment re location above). You will not regret staying here. BTW, bring your food as there is no grocery store or restaurant in Issel.

Chris and his family were absolutely brilliant! We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming and enjoyable experience. We were cycling between Homps and Bram along the Canal du Midi and chose this place as an overnight stop off. For anyone following a similar route, I would say that it's quite a distance from the canal and up some steep hills (maybe a 1h 30m ride from Bram although we didn't follow the most direct route) but it was absolutely, 100% worth it. We arrived late and were a little lost so Chris came and picked us up and put our bikes in his trailer. How many Airbnb hosts do that?! We arrived to find an entire candle lit meal prepared for us in the garden which is exactly what we needed after a very long day on the bike. The accommodation was brilliant; just as you would imagine a rustic French farm house to be. The natural swimming pool was perfect for a morning swim (and no doubt an afternoon cool off had we arrived earlier in the day). We were surrounded by cats, dogs (say hi to their border collie Rio!), horses and chickens who were all equally as welcoming as Chris and his wife. Chris is English but has spent most of his life in France with his French wife so has a unique viewpoint on French life which, as English people, we found really interesting to learn about. I really cannot recommend this place enough (both the accommodation and Chris!) and I really wish we could've spent more time there. You won't be disappointed.
