Bize Minervois is a lovely understated French village so the setting is great - the house was spacious and had good outside space for al fresco eating. The upstairs bedroom was by far the best, with a balcony to sit out on though the views...More

Cleaning is an extra cost which is paid in Euros to the housekeeper and whose charges are below average. We have never needed to withhold the deposit in 10 years but sadly it was necessary as these guests seemed unaware of their obligations to pay...More

About the neighborhood
Apart from the river swimming in the village, you can also swim at Roquebrun, Lagrasse or at the beaches of the Mediterranean all 30 to 45 minutes drive. The Canal du Midi is 10 kms away and is great for cycling and walking as well as boating. Narbonne's covered market is a must see for food lovers and there are excellent restaurants in many of the villages dotted around. You are surrounded by vineyards of the renowned Minervois Appellation so there are plenty of tasting opportunities, starting at the village square. The whole area is steeped in history with mediaeval castles, abbeys, churches, villages and cities from the Roman, Cathar and Wars of religion periods. Particular favorites are Minerve (15 kms) and the sculptures at the heptagonal 11th-century church at Rieux. Even Spain i...
