Enjoy the best of village life and then take refuge in the lovely back garden next to the pool!

We spent a week in December in this wonderful house. Including Christmas dinner at the nearby Lac de Jouarres.
The house is ideal: clean, fabulously well-equipped kitchen, good central heating plus a huge fireplace. It couldn’t be closer to the shops and cafes, 10 minutes from the Canal du Midi, great for walking, cycling and local touring. There are lots of things to do on the doorstep; within easy reach of the beaches of Guissan and the hills of Minerve.

people found this review helpful

We spent a lovely week in this holiday home in July 2012. The house was very well equiped and as shown in the photos, basic self catering provisions were provided which were very welcome after a long journey, 2 supermarkets and boulangeries were within a few minutes walk. The weather was @ 30+ degrees during our stay, but the house remained cool and the small pool in the garden was very much needed and appreciated. Our teenage daughters loved the pool and courtyard so much it was a struggle to tear them away. We walked to near by Lac de Jouarres which was good for swimming and had a nice cafe for drinks and icecreams. We visited neighbouring Homps and also Carcassone - for the citadel and town shops and in contrast Minerve with its lovely village and river cave. The house is in a very convenient central location in the village - great for the weekly market, shops and restaurants, but as it's in a side street we were very private. The central location meant that our teenagers could go...
