“Totally Relaxing Holiday” We spent a glorious summer fortnight at Maison Galloise and cannot wait to stay again .... only work committments have kept us away!
This beautiful rural retreat is perfect for a relaxing holiday. The locals do not speak much English, but were very patient with my very rusty schoolgirl French! The area is surrounded by vineyards and you can buy very decent wine from the local shop a few minutes walk away (the Rose is great). We bought lovely fresh croissants and baguettes from the boulangerie every morning - including Sunday - and enjoyed fresh seafood from the local village market. There is also a supermarket a short drive away.
A car is essential - we enjoyed exploring the local area and very picturesque villages nearby. Trebes is a short drive away and you can take a boat trip on the Canal du Midi from the centre of the town. Carcassone is a beautiful, walled city and also well worth a visit.
The villa has everything required for a totally relaxing holiday ... we can't wait to go again.
My apartment in rieux minervois was absolutely fantastic and I could not find anything it did not provide. From great towels to every single kitchen utensil and item you could imagine.
The English owners clearly understand what English people travelling abroad expect and like so as well as being spotlessly clean the welcome pack provided every essential and some pleasures not expected.
Providing you have a car and are simply looking for a lovely base this is perfect for two adults and two children.

We have just had a fabulous holiday at Maison Galloise. From the start of our booking Ross couldn't have been more helpful, providing lots of information and very happy to answer all our questions. We are a family of five with three boys (17, 14 and 12) and the accommodation was perfect with plenty of space both inside and out, great facilities with the pool and games 'garage' as well as the large garden for playing football etc). The pool was lovely, perfect temperature and very clean. It is a great location for exploring the area and there is plenty of culture, food, wine and outdoors activities to find something to suit everyone. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and are very much hoping to return in due course. …
