“Lovely gite in gorgeous village”
Well appointed, fully self-contained gite in a lovely village close to Beziers in the small, pretty village of a Causses-et-Veyran. The large courtyard garden, with the all important swimming pool, was perfect for relaxing in - and was beautifully shaded by the large Magnolia tree that has given the property it's name. Great hosts Jane & Merv. Definitely recommend this place.
“Great gite with excellent pool and handy location for taste of Languedoc.”
The gite is in great condition and is very well equipped. This is an excellent base for exploring the region with the Orb valley, national park, beaches and historic towns within a reasonable drive. The pool and garden are very relaxing, with a beautiful magnolia tree the inspiration for the gite's name. The living area is compact, which may seem restrictive if unlucky with weather, but we ate in the garden or out every evening and it is sunny most of the year. The owners, Jane and Merv, are in the property beside the gite and are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Welcome supplies on arrival were very much appreciated.
“Wonderful Gite with fabulous pool and very helpful owners”
A balanced location between the mountains and the coast that allows you to get the best of both worlds. The gite has recently been completed and is well laid out and spotlessly clean with everything provided you need in the kitchen as well as beach towels and lots of local guides you can consult. Parking is easy, off the road beside the gite. The garage is also available but we did not use it. The pool is situtated in a lovely garden and it was perfect to sit at one of the tables and just relax. The village has a bar/restaurant and bread shop and there are numerous supermarkets close by where you can stock up. Jane is very helpful and provided lots of advice about places to visit, walks ,etc. There is so much to see and do in the area all within a short drive. We would recommend staying here and hope to return.
A warm welcome with a friendly and jolly service. Great place to stay with lots of great roads around for some great cycling in a warm sunny climate. After a days biking back to the Gite for a dip in the lovely refreshing pool set in a lovely garden. The rooms were clean with all necessary amenities. Thanks guys for a wonderful time.
“Wonderful hosts make for a grand holiday in beautiful Languedoc”
We recently enjoyed two weeks in beautifully scenic Causses et Veyran and environs. Jane and Merv have a lovely, quiet setting with ready access to nearby market towns and fantastic countryside. They are knowledgeable about cycling and walking in the area and provided helpful information - we were there to cycle. There are many routes available, including a fabulous ride through hills and valleys with no traffic that was especially recommended by Merv. The village photo was taken on that route. I was on my own for the first few days before my husband arrived and it was especially nice to have Jane and Merv nearby to assist, if needed. The gite is newly constructed and it is comfortable and well-equipped. In the warmer seasons, guests would be enjoying more time in the beautiful pool and garden. Even though we were there in the winter, when it was too cold for swimming, the weather was mostly cooperative and we were able to bicycle every day! We also enjoyed two great meals with Jane and Merv - the best meals of the trip! (And nice not to have to drive home afterward - so we could enjoy some local wine.) I think they plan to offer meal options to guest, going forward, and I highly recommend "Chef Jane".
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. It's a pleasure to cook for guests and it was your good company and conversation that made the meals memorable. Hope to see you here again.
“Winter sunshine, fabulous food and a lovely setting”
This was the perfect spot to escape a London winter-from rainy and grey to amazing blue skies, sunshine (remember what that is like ?) in a delightful little French village set in wine country on the borders of the national park this was just what we needed to recharge after Christmas. Gite Magnolia is beautiful, well equipped and furnished with perfect taste. Jane and Merv are great hosts with the local knowledge that means you can really make the most of even a short stay. His knowledge of the cycle and walking routes arond Causses et Veyran is epic and Jane can give you some great pointers on places for the lunch and dinner you owe yourself after all that exercise. Out of season the area is quieter and for a shot of winter sun accompanied by some quality eating I couldn't think of a better spot.
“Perfect place to relax in a beautiful French village situated in the heart of the vineyards”
Great little gite, lovely owners who bought groceries for us before our arrival late at night so as we'd have some breakfast in the morning! Also they delivered fresh bread and croissants every morning to our door step. Lots of storage for your bikes plus work stands and facilities to carry out maintenance and small repairs if necessary. The accommodation itself was very clean and tidy well equipped enough for a small family or group of friends to spend a week or so relaxing by the pool or visiting the local attractions walking, cycling, wine tasting, local markets, spending time at the beach etc. We only ate out once as it was just a 4 day trip, on the advice of the owners we had dinner with them and a couple they know who run a very small restaurant in the next village I can only describe food and hospitality as top class and very cheap! 4 courses, aperitifs, digestifs, cheese board, tea/coffee for just €30.
I visited during the grape harvest season when the weather was still warm and sunny. Great area for walking, either short local walks or drive out for longer walks. The surrounding villages are worth a visit too - don't miss out on market day. The gite is clean comfortbale, done in a smple but elegant style. The outdoor space is lovely. The owners understand customer service. Looking forward to going back.
“Great hospitality, great location”
We stayed here for a road-biking trip. Our hosts, Merv and Jane, could not have been more helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Their local knowledge is exceptional, and I would not hesitate to recommend staying here. They have put a real personal touch into the gite. It's a perfect base for road biking in the Languedoc - plenty of rides from the door, great scenery, and great wine-tasting opportunities! Also a great base for walking holidays, although would recommend bringing a vehicle to make the most of the area.
“Lovely gite in a spectacular region”
Stayed a week at Gite Magnolia, a wonderful find in the heart of Languedoc. The gite is part of an old vigneron’s house, and the exterior of the gite has kept the style of the old building with traditional shutters and thick walls that were excellent at keeping out the heat of the summer sun. The gite itself has a lovely outlook to nearby vineyards and countryside. Inside, the gite is light and well renovated, with a modern fully-equipped kitchen and bathroom. The spacious garden and pool area was very relaxing, it was a real joy having breakfast there each morning under the magnolia tree. The gite is located in a small and pretty village, enlivened by the requisite cafe/bar. The surrounding countryside is spectacular but a car is definitely needed to get around. For us, the location proved to be a perfect base to explore all the attractions and activities in the region: Carcassone, the Canal du Midi, the national park of Haut Languedoc, beaches on the Mediterranean coast, river swimming, kayaking, farmers’ markets in local medieval towns and villages, vineyards and wine tastings. Hosts Jane and Merv were very friendly and helpful, they’re outdoor enthusiasts and so were able to provide us with lots of information and maps on fantastic routes for walking and cycling (bicycles available if needed). Jane and Merv were also a font of knowledge on the many excellent restaurants and wines in the area. We particularly enjoyed their recommendations on a superb walk in the Gorges D’Heric followed by wine-tastings at St Chinian and Roquebrun!
