Hi! Welcome to our home, La Maison du Bonheur. We joined Kid & Coe because we think it's an excellent way to travel abroad, see new places and stay in beautiful homes around the world. They say it's not until you lived like the locals that you really get a feel of life in another city or country. Kid & Coe provides us with that opportunity. When it comes to traveling, we enjoy experiencing it all; from the earths natural beauty to the hustle and bustle of city life.

Carcassonne, Southwest France

Castles, cobblestones and canals

This fairytale town in southern France is like a medieval pageant come to life, all drawbridges, cobblestones and Disney-esque turrets. Spaghetti-thin streets wind past basilicas covered in gargoyles and ramparts rolling out panoramic views. Watch falconry shows and knights on horseback or splash about at Carcassonne Plage, just outside the city.
