"A great place to stay to relax and a good location for visiting the region"

A very comfortable and well-equipped gite offering a perfect blend of peace and quiet, yet the pretty villages and towns of the region are within easy reach by car.

The region offers a good choice of restaurants and caves to buy the local wine. It is also a very interesting area. The beach at Narbonne Plage is well worth a visit and the old city of Carcassone should not be missed. There are also lots of local markets where we occasionally bought fresh produce to eat back at the gite in the evenings.

We had some good weather in mid April and were able to enjoy relaxing outside. The garden is a definite bonus.

Julie and David (the owners and hosts) were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We plan to go back later this year.
