Chez Dyna, 17 Promenade des Fosses, Alaigne, 11240

Chez Dyna is a charming old restored maison de Maitre in the centre of Alaigne, a medieval village close to Carcassonne. It is an ideal location to base your exploration of the Cathar country. Chez Dyna is less than half an hour to both the magical city of Carcassonne, the only fortified town in Europe still inhabited; and the spiritual hilltop village of Rennes-le-Chateau, site of many Holy Grail excavations. Chez Dyna is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day exploring the city.

Chez Dyna has been awarded three stars by the independent Clévacances organisation for the high standard of its B&B rooms. All rooms are en suite facilities with tea / coffee making facilities.
Chez Dyna also offers a newly refurbished very pretty adjoining gite (cottage) for weekly rental.

We aim to offer guests a friendly, stress free stay with the possiblilty to blend self contained gite accommodation with b & b. We can be flexible about the duration of stay as well as the day of arrival and departure.

Des hôtes charmants attentifs à nos moindres désirs. Un cadre douillet, agréable et confortable. Une maison d'hôtes comme on aimerait qu'elles soient toutes. Un grand merci à Lyn et Geoff pour leur accueil chaleureux.

Evaluation "Chez Dyna"
Review by: Barillot Bernard et Catherine, Juin 4 2012 5:56PM
Que des compliments à faire, gentillesse des hôtes, excellente réception, convivialité et néanmoins discrétion, cuisine savoureuse d'après les jeunes à qui nous avons offert le WE, très joli décor, environnement agréable et tarifs raisonnables.

Chez Dyna : Le gîte parfait.
Review by: Pierre Chassagne, Dec 30 2011 4:30PM
J'ai passé un week-end d'automne chez Dyna (nous étions 3 personnes). Quand j'y repense, un mot me vient systématiquement à l'esprit : romantisme. Lits confortables, salles de bain très propres, petit déjeûner délicieux (fruits, céréales, lait, café, yaourts, jus de fruit... pain frais). Le Gîte qui vous donne envie de partir plus souvent en voyage. Grande classe anglaise pour un prix très correct. Merci Dyna !

accueil "chez Dyna"
Review by: Dubois Francette et Alain, Sep 8 2011 9:31AM
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Geoff et Lin. Nous avons apprécié la cuisine de Lin, ainsi que la chambre (son confort, sa déco et sa propreté). Nous avons aimé le petit jardin et le dîner sur la terrasse que nous avons partagé avec des gens charmants. Nous avons été touchés par les petites attentions que faisaient Geoff aux enfants. Toutes ces rencontres nous ont données l'envie de créer chez nous, une chambre d'hôtes et/ou un gîte!!

Chez Dyna
Review by: Derek and Jane Wilson, Sep 6 2011 8:38PM
Geoff and Lynn are perfect hosts in the delightful bed and breakfast that they have created in recent years.
Excellent breakfast and hospitality. The furnishings are a delight and show great artistic flair. Extremely comfortable and so peaceful. Excellent bar in the village.Only regret is that as we are buying a house nearby we wont need to stay there again ! Alaigne is a great centre for exploring what is a truly beautiful area.

Le dépaysement total

Chez Dyna
Review by: Michael Gwinn, Aou 7 2011 7:58PM
Delightful and charming place to stay. Every care given by the attentive hosts to make it a memorable time with them. Lovely village with local amenities and wonderful surrounding countryside. Near-by towns and City of Carcassone not far away, together with many historical places to visit, add to the overall pleasure of time spent there. Cannot recommend highly enough in every way.

2 night stay July 2011
Review by: David and Sue Crayston, Aou 2 2011 9:57AM
Our short stay at Chez Dyna on completing the sale of our 'holiday' home in Belveze was truly perfect. The tasteful restoration of the property has been done to perfection. Geoff and Lyn made us so welcome nothing was too much trouble. Next time that we stay we will maybe have time to sit in the lovely garden. We will recommend this little hidden treasure to any friends visiting the area.

"Chez Dyna" est une charmante maison située à Alaigne, avec trois chambres d'hôtes et un petit gîte à coté. Cet endroit calme est le point de départ idéal pour vos excursions dans le Pays Cathare. L'arrière de la maison donne sur la mairie et le café-bar et il sert d'entrée. Il y a aussi un grand parking pour les véhicules. Une piscine en plein air est ouverte tout l'été à Belvèze, le village voisin qui est à 3 km, tandis qu'à Limoux (à 12 km) célèbre pour sa Blanquette, vous trouverez une piscine d'hiver et une d'été ainsi que de nombreux loisirs et activités sportives telles que canoë-kayak, rafting et promenades à cheval. En hiver les pistes de ski ne sont qu'à une heure de voiture.
