This is lovely peaceful location with many places of interest to visit. An easy walk into La Liviniere where there is a restaurant and a bar/bistro. The Gite is amazingly comfortable both inside and out. The pool and outside area are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view over the valley.
This was our second visit and each time we wanted to stay on. Niki and Jos are perfect hosts and the Gite is spotless. They supply a wonderful welcome pack with everything you need. You are left completely alone but Niki and Joss are there when needed.
We have travelled extensively in France and this is easily the best accommodation we have stayed in. These ladies should give courses in Gite rental.
La Colline aux Pins doesn't feel like a rental, it feels like home.
We just loved our week here, and really didn't want to leave. The accommodation is superbly equipped. It's very private, and immaculately presented. On top of that Nikki and Joss couldn't be more attentive and helpful. The only disappointment came from the WiFi connection, which is actually OK if you sit outside between the two houses. But if you want to be permanently on-line, or stream video to the TV it won't work for you. La Liviniere is an absolute joy as a holiday location. Small and unbelievably quiet and relaxed. At the same time it's well served with boulangerie, pharmacy, convenience store, good restaurant and bar/pizzeria.
Will be Back? We certainly hope so.
Returning for the second time this beautiful place is so peaceful. We could not have received a warmer welcome and attentive detail throughout our stay. Will certainly book again!
This is the most amazing Gite, exceptionally well maintained and spotless as is the stunning large pool. The accommodation is spacious and very comfortable. Brilliant outside stoop with barbecue. A superb location with the Black Mountains to the rear and views over the Aude Valley to the Pyrenees in the distance. We cannot rate this accommodation highly enough and we are heading back for our fifth year next year. June/July are great months to visit - Long sunny days with long warm evenings. Niki and Joss are brilliant hosts, very welcoming and very friendly. We just love it! Bonus is that La Liviniere is a Premiere Cru for Minervois wines...and they are stunning!
This is our 6th year at La Colline aux Pins and we love it! The hosts are so helpful and welcoming and continue to provide high quality accommodation and facilities. We look forward to returning each year to enjoy the stunning location, the views and the outdoor living space with its superb pool.
