Bize is a lovely village and the gite is literally a 5min stroll from the centre. The gite is great - comfortably fitted out with everything you need, and with a fabulous pool. The owners, Karen and David, are very helpful. Bar, restaurants, and local shops are easy walking distance and the locals are all friendly and helpful. The surrounding area is great to explore with vineyards, medieval cities, beaches, ports and modern shopping all easily accessible in our hire car. Will definitely visit agin.
Web site states swimming pool is available solely for guests from 10 am to 12 pm and from 2 pm to 5 pm . We were annoyed to discover they were the only hours we could use the pool . We understood the owners would be able to use the pool with guests at other times . At the hottest time of the day and in the evening it was out of bounds . There was a barbecue by the pool but that could not be used as the policy was no food nor drink . They did have a clock there so you wouldn't overstay your time
Karen"s directions left a lot to be desired. Also pointless having a brochure for the wrong TV in the gite
Karen was very helpful in relation for our payment for the gite...saving us money as well as herself
The Gite was in great order , very quiet and had every thing we needed. She was always approachable
A lovely gite in perfect surroundings. Everything you need in this tastefully decorated and comfortable holiday home. BBQ ready for use and all amenities for your stay. The pool area is very beautiful also and a sun trap. A stone throw away is Bize and all it's charms. Boulangerie local shop and some wonderful local restaurants, our favs being cafe du midi and the newly opened cafe de la promenade.The river is just such a wonderful addition to the stay and so much to explore in the surrounding areas. We visited the beach in Narbonne it was beautiful and an easy 50 min drive away. Totally recommend it!
I almost want to keep this property to myself - it is so good!! The gite is charming especially if, like us, you like quiet, peaceful surroundings. It has a delightful large patio with 2 mulberry trees so you can choose shade or sun. There is a built in cheminiere BBQ and comfortable patio table and chairs. The bed is SO comfortable, the 'rain' shower a delight and there is free wifi and English TV channels ( perfect since it was Wimbledon week - and we wanted to keep tabs on Andy Murray!!). It was wonderful to come back after a day out to a dip in the pool which was an amazing 80F+ despite being heated only by the air.
We are keen self caterers but if you like to eat out there are numerous restaurants in and nearby the lovely little village of Bize. The local markets are full of wonderful produce and June is the perfect time for cherries and apricots. We enjoyed exploring the medieval villages of Minerve, Olargues and Roquebrun but if it's the beach you're looking for then Narbonne Plage is close by.
Add to all this the friendly and helpful owners David & Karen, and it's pretty much a recipe for the perfect holiday. We will certainly return to Petite Oleandre Maison at some time in the future.
