Alternatively, a short drive south will bring you to the tree lined banks of the Canal du Midi. A 30 to 45 minute drive (depending upon which resort you choose) will take you to the Mediterranean coast & the excellent beaches of Narbonne, Gruissan & Valras.Also not to be missed is the magical walled city of Carcassonne in the heart of the Cathar region, with its narrow streets, restaurants & museums.

“Excellent stay in very well appointed cottage in lovely village”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

Our week-long stay at Hortensia Cottage was brilliant. The cottage itself comprises three floors with a fantasic top floor "suite" occupying the whole floor, including walk-in wardrobe and spacious bathroom. There were two other very good sized doubles on the first floor and ample living space on the ground floor with a well appointed kitchen and very comfortable lounge. The living space is complemeted with not one but two totally separate terraces, one which enjoyed more shade in the heat of the day while the other, larger one was equipped with an excellent stone built barbeque and large dining table. Neither are overlooked and made for great alfresco dining. We also liked the thought that has gone into providing other little extras such as a cool box, tennis racquets (there is a free tennis court in the village), other beach "stuff" for kids, board gamesand plenty of books! Locally, the village of Siran is very pleasant and includes a small general store, boulangerie and decent sized bar/brasserie run by a very nice family, with a lovely shaded outdoor dining terrace less than two minutes from the cottage. A must visit is the beautiful (enormous) swimming/watersports lake and lakeside restaurant just outside the next door village of Pepieux, ten minutes away by car and much closer than the beach. No real negatives about our stay, excellent throughout as was the weather. Suggest a couple of extra fans as temperatures overnight in the summer will get high. Will be back for sure!!

“very comfortable and well equipped”

Clean and tidy cottage, very well equipped with everything you might need to self cater. Two big doubles ( the attic is gorgeous) and one rather smaller one.Lovely bed linens and towels.Cosy lounge with log burner. Lots of things to see in the area, and the village itself is nice.Recommended.
