How we can help

Our base will be Domaine des Jasse. Les Jasses is about escape. The current owner gave up being a lawyer and came here to become an artist. Three cars a day pass the end of the drive which leads to a landscape unchanged since Roman times. The rooms and bathrooms are large and the house is filled with antiques and art collected over a lifetime by the owner. The domaine sleeps 21 in comfort, grandeur and style; yet it was for centuries a place of contemplation and still feels like a haven from the world .

In the early 18th century Louis XIV granted Domaine des Jasses to the Ursuline nuns, provided they prayed daily for him and his family. These Letters Patent of King Louis are held by the Archive Departement de l’Aude a copy of which can be seen on the website: Domaine des Jasse.
