“Special place”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2012

Petite Oleandre Maison was really lovely. Karen was a most considerate hostess. There were many little touches designed to make our stay easy and comfortable. The welcome pack included a bottle of local wine, and breakfast for the next day. An unexpected arrival by one of my children posed no problem at all, Karen supplied the bedding, and help, immediately. The cottage was spotlessly clean and I detected Karen has very high standards. David was extremely welcoming and friendly too. Bize Minervois is a delightful little village which has not be spoilt and has remained 'alive' with good restaurants close by and an excellent bakery. Great to be able to walk out for supplies rather than taking to the car all the time. It was very quiet and peaceful, backing on to fields. We would visit again.

“Lovely gite with a superb outdoor patio.”

Reviewed 31 May 2012

Although completely private in a very quiet lane, the gite is close to the village centre (good patisserie, a l'utile and a few other shops) and the river for pottering about in the morning and evening. Close to Le Somail for the canal du midi and only 30ish minutes to Gruissan plage des chalets which was a lovely huge beach. The gite is small and well equipped. Ideal for a couple, though we took our eldest son as well who is disabled. The owner was very helpful and welcoming. The garden was lovely. It was bliss just sitting on the patio, listening to the birds and enjoying the sunshine and the peace and quiet. Some good local walds too if feeling energetic!
