Holiday accommodation with computers and Broadband Internet Access, France

Gite des Cathares in Couiza, Aude has three self-contained holiday apartments, each with own computer and free ADSL Broadband Internet access, which is much faster than a standard dial-up connection and is available around the clock, without needing to log-in. This is ideal for house hunting, finding out about local attractions, providing entertainment or keeping in touch with friends and clients via email.

If you have a laptop which you wish to bring with you, then it's very simple to either plug it into the Ethernet connection (which gives you a faster connection), or we have a wi-fi connection if you'd prefer.

We will be updating this page soon with new photos of the computers (sorry, the photos below are out of date), as we now have new computers using Windows Vista. This permits you to also use Skype (if you have an account), meaning that you can make and receive phone calls through the broadband internet connection from any of the French holiday apartments.


While this page is about the computers and internet connection, the other aspects of the holiday gite will obviously be important to you.

Gite des Cathares is in the centre of Couiza, a short walk from shops, patisseries, restaurants, a bar and a cafe, as well as a peaceful river swimming spot. It is near the centre of the Aude region of Languedoc Roussillon and the links on the left show many of the attractions of the area - miles of beautiful walks through breathtakingly beautiful countryside, bike rides, horse riding, water sports, restaurants, caves, museums, etc,

The holiday apartments themselves are each fully self-contained and have access to a shared terrace which seats 8. Each holiday apartment has:

  • Original paintings by several local artists on the walls.
  • It's own well-equipped kitchen with microwave and washing machine (plus toaster, kettle, etc.)
  • A bathroom with bath and shower attachment, plus separate WC. (The 2nd floor also has a stand up shower).
  • A selection of English books, toys and games.
  • Bedding and towels supplied free of charge.
  • A cot, high chair, push chair and plastic utensils available free of charge.
  • Use of the pretty South-facing terrace.
  • It's own computer with free Broadband internet access or wi-fi for your laptop.

If you're house hunting in the area, then you may wish to visit our Estate Agents page (called Immobiliers or just Immo in France), which has links to several local estate agents. The internet allows you to readily view properties for sale, or helps find local attractions, confirm opening times, etc.
