Cédric, founder of L’écrin de la Cité

Owner of cottages since 2005, envisioned creating a luxury brand that offers exceptional vacation homes with unique views of the Citadel of Carcassonne.

The collection of my 5-star villas began in 2019 with L’écrin Cœur de Vignes. From the outset, I fell in love with its stunning setting, imagining children playing in the park, a couple in the hot tub, and your admiring reactions to the Medieval Citadel — envisioning all the possible moments of happiness you will experience with family or friends.

In 2021, I had a crush on L’écrin Grand Panorama, a house in a unique location offering breathtaking 360-degree views of the Medieval Citadel, the Pyrenees, the Black Mountain, and the surrounding vineyards.

Every detail of these two luxury villas has been thoughtfully crafted, creating a warm atmosphere and absolute comfort for my travelers.

My goal is for you to feel at home from the moment you pass through the gate, enjoying the peace and tranquility of these places for memorable moments.
