25 minutes south-west of Carcassonne, the Razès Gîtes are buried in the heart of the rolling Razès countryside in the sleepy village of Escueillens. Ideally located in a rural village, guests have the opportunity to slow down and re-discover a sense of peace and calm while gently absorbing the sights and sounds of nature all around.

The apartments and gardens of the Razès Gîtes provide you with a comfortable setting in which to retreat and enjoy the unspoilt French countryside.
