'Lonely Planet -
Sidsmums is in the village of Preixan, 10km south of Carcassonne. It's a fantastic place to relax, recharge your batteries and savour a little of the TLC that lucky Sid enjoys. You can hire a bike, take a guided walk with Georges the dog and cook for yourself in the self-contained kitchen. Warmly recommended, for a night or for a week.'

'Sidsmums Travellers Retreat: This hostel will seem like paradise after the crowds in town, set in the countryside against the peaceful town of Preixan. Sid and his Mum will offer you advice on the best hikes in the area, drive you to nearby pubs, or serve you cool lemonade in the garden.

'''one of the best hostels around. Jan and Sid have come up with an oasis in an already sparkling part of the world. .. I think in the not too distant future it's going to be very hard to get a bed here. This place is absolutely a home away from home. And then some.
