About C Smith
We are teachers with three children who spend as many holidays as possible exploring this beautiful mountainous region. We love our mountain activities just as much as love our reading days sitting on the patio. We have been coming here for over 16 years, and we have come to love this magical Cathar retreat.
C Smith purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why C Smith chose Château-Verdun
This is a very special place for family outdoor holidays, or just for getting away from it all. We've gone to an effort to make the apartment comfortable and well equipped for a relaxing visit. We have limited internet for a good reason, but we do have lots of books and games, and DVDs if you need some screen time.
What makes this Apartment unique
Caves, Cathar castles, the train to Toulouse or Spain, good local ski resorts, proximity to Andorre and Spain, good access to a number of airports, great mountain huts for food and accommodation when hiking, GR10 is close by. Our new 12m pool, with amazing views was commissioned in July 2019. The 16 appartments are situation in the outbuildings of Chateau de Gudannes.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Peaceful perfect paradise
Just back from France and wanted to say thank you so much for the use of the apartment. I checked the guest book and I had indeed stayed as a guest back in June 2007 in the same apartment!! It was all I remembered and felt fantastic to be back in such a great apartment and beautiful surroundings. Rae was a great help welcoming us and recommending places to go.
The apartment was well equipped and a haven to come back to each evening after our adventures. Relaxing on the patio wine in hand and views out of picture books!! Awesome to drive up the route of the mountain stage of the Tour de France - right on the doorstep, to the ski station at plateau de beille. We took one of the hiking routes up in the clouds and took in the spectacular Pyrenees views. The village Les Cabannes(5 mins walk) had a fantastic restaurant ( A La Montanha) that served wonderful local produce -a gem!!
I hope to keep your details and would love to visit again sooner rather than later.

Very nice place
very nice and very quiet
super séjour à la montagne
La location est idéalement située, au calme dans les montagnes avec un magnifique panorama et à 2 pas des commerces. Le magnifique jardin et la récente piscine sont un atout indeniable.
Le logement est propre et fonctionnel, lumineux.
Les 2 chambres en mezzanine, ne ferment pas et limitent un peu l'intimité.
Colin, malgré la distance, est très réactif et disponible pour toutes les questions.
Nous recommandons vivement cette location.
Exceeded my expectations
The house, the garden, the scenery and environment all amazed me and my family. We had 3 stops divide over 2 weeks and for all us this was the most favorite place.
You can relax in the garden, drive up the mountain, you are at the foot of plateau L'Abeille to see the stars at night, or do more adventuours things like canyoning, all is possible in the close area.
Although the title of the house mentioned swimming pool, I did not see any pictures, it was a big bonus to have such a great pool in the garden.
The beautiful villages, the walks and the history makes it a trip to never forgot.
Thank you Colin and family for letting us use your great home.
Thank you so much for this review. The Ariege is a magical location for winter and summer mountain holidays. Our comfortable appartment is an ideal base for exploring the mountains. We've been going there for 2 decades with our family, and we adore this wonderful region.
Must do activities for us include alpine walking, skiing, visiting atmospheric Cathar sites, shopping in local markets, exploring local historic towns, and going to see ancient cave drawings at Niaux. Alternatively, lazing in the beautiful garden of the chateau.
