Welcome to La Dolce Vita - Come in and make yourself at home! When you think of the "sweet life", do you imagine a vacation in the South of France? Well if so, where better to get a taste for this fabulous region than at La Dolce Vita guest house and Table d'hôte, located in the heart of the sleepy village of Azille in Languedoc-Roussillon, just 20 minutes from Carcassonne. Our home offers 4 comfortable rooms & a private apartment. It is ideal as a base for discovering this beautiful corner of France, Medieval & Cathar history, and the delights of the nearby Canal du Midi. Alternatively, you can just kick back and relax on our rooftop terrace, admire the view of the surrounding vineyards...while enjoying a personally prepared meal made to order with a bottle of local wine!

Directions to La Dolce VitaFrom Toulouse (and Carcassonne): From the Toulouse ring road (la périphérique), follow signs to the autoroute A61, direction Montpellier. Take a ticket from the tollbooth at the start of the autoroute (you'll need to hand over the ticket when you leave the autoroute - the toll from Toulouse to Carcassonne Est is about €5). Once on the autoroute you should see signs to Carcassonne (about 97Km away). Leave the autoroute A61 at exit 24 (Sortie #24 Carcassonne Est). This is the second of two exits for Carcassonne - don't take the first one. You will see the ancient fortified cité from the autoroute over to your left before you exit.After leaving the A61, follow signs to Trèbes centre, turning right onto the N113 and then left onto the D610 (be careful not the continue on the N113 as that will take you to Narbonne and bypass Azille). After passing through Trèbes, stay on the D610 (pay attention here as the road twists and turns a bit - just make sure you stay on the main road). You will pass through Marseillette, then Puicheric. Shortly after Puicheric, take the second turn off for La Redorte (make sure you follow the second sign posted turn for La Redorte, NOT the first). Once you arrive in the town center of La Redorte, watch out on the right for a small, hidden sign for Azille (if you miss this you will have to turn around and go back to look on your left). Weave through the back streets of La Redorte until you are on the little country road leading to Azille. You will see Azille before you are there (beautiful, isn't it?)! Once you start the rise up at the entrance to the village, you will see a lower road angling off to the left. Pass this road and then take the next left turn. Follow this road up and it will take you into Place de Plo where you can park. La Dolce Vita is located at 19, Grand Rue which is almost on the Place going up the one-way street the wrong way - you can't miss it!
