Charming Bed and Breakfast
Between Perpignan and Carcassonne
Bed & Breakfast in Cathare region
Ann and Joo welcome you to their guest house, which overlooks a superb Mediterranean landscape of scrubland, cliffs and vineyards, where absolute calm reigns.
The ‘Pays Cathare’ is a historically fascinating region of Languedoc-Roussillon.
The Domaine de Coussères is a charming Bed and Breakfast with:
- spacious rooms
- large family suite
- swimming pool
- large wooded garden
- closed private car park.
Our guest rooms are ideally located at the foot of the most beautiful Cathar castles, near Collioure and Carcassonne, the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees.
The guesthouse and the region
The old country-house has been renovated by Joo and Ann themselves use that dominates a very quiet and superb Mediterranean dreamscape of garrigue, cliffs and vineyards. The domain is located in the sunniest department of France with a very diversified landscape and a fascinating history. A paradise for nature-lovers, walkers, cyclists and fans of wildwater-sports.
The region is rich in prehistoric sites, medieval ‘Cathar castles’ and cities like Carcassonne or Collioure.
Romanesque art is omnipresent in the region with prestigious abbeys and more modest chapels. But also artists like Dali, Picasso and Maillol belong to the cultural heritage.
For wine-lovers, the Roussillon offers a wide range of specialties, going from the sparkling “Blanquette de Limoux”, the Côtes du Roussillon, Corbières and Fitou, up to natural sweet wines such as Muscat, Maury or Banuyls.
Domaine de Coussères
Suppose you’re dreaming …
… you dream of holidays with plenty of sunshine and pure air, in the middle of vineyards and garrigue, unspoilt nature and complete silence …
… maybe you dream of having a siesta in a deck-chair under the trees, of making an adventurous trip on a river, splashing in the water, climbing a mountain, shooting breathtaking panoramas …
… you also dream of surprising discoveries and cultural visits and making a journey through the Middle Ages with castles and knights …
… or you just dream of building sand-castles, blowing off on the beach or near the swimming-pool, doing nothing and enjoying a delicious evening-meal …
Then it’s time to wake up and hurry to the Domaine de Coussères, we have all you dreamt of, and even more!
But if you don’t, … simply keep on dreaming …
The interior is fresh and bright in the colors of the south. Our guests have a large dining room with terrace, lounges and a library.

Breakfast is served at individual tables. When the weather permits we have breakfast outside on the terrace.
There is a fridge on your disposition for your picnic and drinks. We no longer serve a ‘table d’hôtes’, but there are nice restaurants in the neighbourhood.
