 Bed and Breakfast in the South of France 


Boutique bed and breakfast near Carcassonne. Incredibly peaceful and relaxing Le Chai de Marguerite has beautiful, comfortable rooms and a gorgeous garden and pool from which to explore this glorious wine region in South West France.

Peace and quiet. Stylish. Romantic

Le Chai de Marguerite is a restored “Maison de Maître” in a pretty wine village. The large, elegantly decorated rooms retain many original features. The garden and pool are a great place to just chill out after a day discovering the fascinating history of the Minervois. 

In between Carcassonne and Narbonne, in the heart of the Montagne Noire, just by the Canal du Midi, there is plenty to see and do as well as discover the wonderful wine and restaurants in the area.

I am trying to run Le Chai de Marguerite as sustainably as possible.
The house is furnished with a lot of pre-loved and vintage furniture and much of the crockery and cutlery comes from my family or foraging trips to local brocantes.



Where possible food is organic and sourced from local suppliers. Cleaning products are selected to be as light on the environment as possible (organic or natural products, large formats, recycled and /or minimum plastic.


The garden is being evolved to be less water consuming and no pesticides are used.


Appliances are selected for longevity and energy levels.
Plans to change heating systems and suppliers are underway.
