Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Absolutely fantastic place on the border between Corbière and Minervois and with easy access to the Canal du Midi. We were there in September, just as the harvest started. There were ripe grapes on the vines surrounding the property. As well as the swimming pool ere was table tennis, a barbecue, boules, darts an array of board games. Free Wi-Fi is included and there is a printer supplied if you bring your laptop. Fantastic! The kitchen is very well stocked with herbs and spices and there is a filter coffee machine. The grounds had ripe almond and fig trees. It’s a fabulous place. The local macabre history of the Vatican initiated genocide of the Cathars is brought to life by a visit to the very well restored Carcassonne. However the reality of this brutal ethnic cleansing is brought out by visits to the more remote strongholds down toward the Spanish border. Altogether this area has history, gastronomy, beauty and finally a new Denomination which is well worth exploring, the Minervois la Livinière. Exciting vibrant wineries. Sept 2012.
  2. We visited this property with all our family including 5 grandsons under 8 years. It was ideal for our needs with a lovely safe garden and terrific pool- not too deep for young children. The kitchen was very well equipped and the lovely caretaker Alex was very helpful and cooked a delicious meal when requested.Our only complaint was that the daily cleaning costs should have been included in the overall cost of the house. It came as a surprise to find we had to pay the costs, and the security deposit of 500 euros we considered excessive. However we would still recommend the property and the location. It would help to be able to speak a little French! Aug 2012.
  3. This is an excellent location for sight seeing in this region of France. The accommodation was superb for our large family gathering and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It would help if you could speak and understand a little French as the manager of the house does not speak any English, however, she is wonderful and extremely helpful and understands hand signals. We would highly recommend this property and we will definitely return. May 2012.
  4. Spacious, comfortable, welcoming. Pool outstanding; caretaker friendly and very helpful. Kitchen well-organised and equipped. Spices, seasonings and leftovers very helpful, as were leaflets, books and DVDs from previous tenants. Sept 2011.
  5. Alexandre, the lady who is there to help, give advice, and clean is an absolute poppet. We were a bit surprised that we HAD to have her services as we’re a clean and tidy lot and didn’t feel we needed her, but we understood the owner’s desire to have an eye quietly kept on the house, and she agreed to do just one hour per day. Her knowledge of the area is great and helped enormously. The house is stunning - even better than in the photographs, and the facilities for our convenience were the best I’ve ever known. We would definitely go back. The only bed that was not comfortable was in the white room, and they are going to replace the mattress. Thank you for a wonderful holiday! Sept 2011.
  6. Typically French in every respect. Just felt as if the owners had left the day before. Everything was on hand and waiting for us at the house. The village itself, again, very typical and quiet, friendly and welcoming. We all had an amazingly relaxing time. July 2010.
  7. Great kitchen, garden & pool. Excellent facilities & equipment. June 2010.
  8. Amazing house, great pool, set in the middle of vineyards. May 2010.
  9. Extremely charming house that fulfilled my purpose of gathering my entire family - 3 generations under same roof - perfectly. The kitchen was something very special- was perfect for working together preparing the meals. We really enjoyed this cosy time in the kitchen. The house was spacious and very charming. We liked all the private stuff and decoration. However it was a problem that the caretaker did not speak English at all. July 2009.
  10. The accommodation was lovely. June 2008.
  11. Superb house, lovely countryside scenery, large rooms, BBQ and an amazing private pool, all in the south of France, what more could you want for a totally relaxing holiday! June 2008.
  12. The pool area has swifts living nearby, in an evening they would swoop to the pool to pick the grubs, if you love nature you would love this place. June 2007.
