This gite is perfectly placed to enjoy the delights of the Aude, Minervois region. Everything one could need in the house, located in a welcoming and vibrant village. Its owner, John, is a friendly and accommodating host and the local bar the centre of life, especially at weekends.
The photo's of this wonderful house do not do it any justice what-so-ever! It was fabulous, we loved the shuttered windows which opened fully on both sides of the house, allowing for a lovely breeze to blow through. A wonderful roof terrace with bbq and large patio set take advantage of being South facing. Lots of space inside and John, the owner, provides wood, kindling and paper to get the fire starting in the wood burner located in the large kitchen, where we enjoyed a couple of bottles of local vin rouge purchased from one of the many wine producing farms in the area. Just 10 minutes from Minerve, one of the most beautiful villages in France, 45 minutes from Carcassonne, Narbonne and Beziers, the location for us was perfect in order to get to see what the glorious Languedoc has to offer. Wish we had longer in which to stay and explore, looking forward to visiting again in the spring time. Book this place, I promise you will not regret it!
The rental property is in a beautiful but quiet village, not far from local shops etc. Well equipped and suitable for our young son. We had a lovely time and would go back to the area and house again. Excellent value for money.
Spent nearly 2 weeks here. Lovely place, the kids loved the rock pools, we all did. Lovely area, had lots of great walks. Loved the market at Olonzac and the cafes in the square.
