If you’re looking for a B&B or chambres d’hote to stay in while you’re house hunting in the Aude Maison des Rossignols is lovely. It’s in Pouzols-Minervois in Minervois wine country, about 30 minutes from Carcassonne and Narbonne.
It’s run by Jack and Jackie Kennedy – really! Everyone suggested that they call it The White House but they felt that was over the top. Jack said that he went to the local garage one day – as any local garage it’s a male bonding social centre – and some one said "Ah le propriétaire de la maison blanche" so it’s one of those things that works in French and English.
There are links to other b & b accommodation at Ode to Aude.
And if you want to run a beautiful B&B in the Aude you can always buy the chambres d’hote that’s for sale in Montreal near Carcassonne.
