4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We very much enjoyed staying here and it was an ideal base for touring the area. We were there to pick up our daughter from University but arrived early so we could have 5 days of touring around. August, of course, is the French holiday season, as we discovered on the one and only day we decided to head for Sete and didn't make it because of the traffic jams but the house was always a cool and restful place to return to after a hot day. The village is set in beautiful countryside (vinyards, of course) and is in easy reach of Beziers (nice quiet and interesting place), Narbonne (excellent and interesting), Pezenas (likewise), Carcassonne (EuroDisney!), the Cadoux (fantastic), Tarn Gorges (likewise) and Montpellier (just there to pick up daughted but only 45 mins away). The house itself is on three floors, one room wide, basic decor and facilities but everything one needs: good kitchen/utility equipment, comfortable beds, good supply of hot water, serviceable bathroom and three... more

We stayed here both as a holiday let and while our own recently bought house was being restored. It was incredibly convenient, and the owners were very helpful when we needed an extended stay. The house is right under the village church tower, and has real character. - spacious and comfortable, a rather traditional holiday home without frills, but everything we needed. more
