We stumbled upon this really nice B&B while driving from Carcassone towards Cadaques.

We initially wanted to stop in Quilan but hotels were either not half decent or very expensive.

Les Eaux Tranquille is located about 10 km outside Quillan - we saw the sign and stopped to inquire about a room for one night. We were lucky - it wasn't a really busy day.

The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. It was too late to have dinner at the B&B and so we drove to Quilan. The host, Chris, was very helpful in any way he could - directions, things to do, ...and of course politics, Britain, France, the world, healthcare, and many other interesting topics.

Breakfast was very good - and of course very animated.

The setting of this B&B is really great and I can see people coming here for longer stays - there are a lot of different ways to enjoy a longer stay - especially hiking, and biking.

For us was just one night - but even so very enjoyable!

Sorry your stay was so short and that you arrived too late for dinner.

We seem to be getting very good feedback on the quality of our food probably because we buy fresh local food on the day. This is why it is important to reserve your meals before you arrive although of course it is a bit difficult if you are a 'walk in' guest. There is however an Auberge across the road and about 11 restaurants in Quillan some 4km (5 minutes by car) down the road that cater for all tastes.

Thanks for such a good review.

We just stayed 4 nights in Les Eaux Tranquilles, and we really enjoyed our stay!
The location is fantastic: it is situated in a stunning region, very close to a main connection road and with the river Aude in the garden! And many interesting touristic places within a radius of 50 kms. Also a good location for biking and hiking.
We stayed in the Lavender room, a nice and very quiet bedroom with a massive bathroom. The room and bathroom are both very clean and maintained on a daily basis. The quality of the bed is excellent. And there is free high speed WIFI connection in the whole house.
Don't bother to bring any documentation about the touristic area: there is a large collection of maps, guides, brochures…and Chris, the owner, will be happy to assist you in exploring the interesting sites of the region.
Regarding the food: we called Chris our "masterchef": he cooks very well, prepares very good gravies and sauces, and even creates chocolate mousse with the help of a vacuum cleaner! Not high tech cuisine but good quality food. The wine selection is somewhat limited, so we suggest to offer a selection of local wines to choose from (at an eventual extra cost).
And…never a dull moment with Chris is around! We have discussed numerous topics ranging from global warming over the monetary union in the EU to immigration of English people in France…
And we discovered the perfect "franglais" as it is spoken by Chris!

When we come next time in this area, we will definitely consider to stay again in Les Eaux Tranquilles!

Thanks Chris, for the good care and the good fun!!!!

Glad you enjoyed your stay, it was great fun and we enjoyed your company.

We are very happy to accept groups be they in cars or on motorcycles like yourselves. We serve local wine with our meals but for those that want to experiment with other wines you are welcome to buy them locally and have them with your evening meals. To be honest I am not much of a wine buff and drink only two or three different wines, the ones I like. Wine is always a very personal thing which is why we have no objection to people bringing wine back and drinking it here.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Great location right on the banks of the river Aude. Nice rooms,great food and company. Highly recommended. Very quiet, just the sound of the river, outside dining in the summer. Good access to the mountains and rivers, white water rafting just next door. Owner friendly and very helpful

Room Tip: Look at the web site

We spent 10 wonderful nights at Les Eux Tranquilles. The location is breathtaking, with stunning mountain views, very quiet, peaceful and relaxing, but with easy access to the main road to both Carcassonne plus Perignan and the coast. The rooms were spotless, very comforatble and well equiped (even had tea/coffee making facilities!). The food was varied, delicous and plentiful!. But it was Chris' warmth, and generosity (in every sense of the word) that really made our stay here so special. He is fun, interesting, well informed (and does allow guests to mingle uninterupted.....) He went well beyond the expected duties of a host to accomodate our needs! We hope to return next autumn to see the region in its full splendour. Thanks for everything Chris - love to Paddy, Max and Boots. Linda and Marc

Room Tip: The Lavender room is north facing, therefore remains cool in high summer
