Bize-Minervois, Aude, Occitanie
The village of Bize is welcoming and friendly. The hot Mediterranean sun with access to refreshing river swimming makes Bize Minervois a wonderful place to be. At Ma Maison there you can look a comfortable well decorated home with all the utilities you need. Within 150 metres you will find river swimming or you may be interested in visiting one of the many historical sites in this Cathar region, taking one of the many country walks, a long bike ride, horse riding or a fun but relaxing paddle in a kayak along the river Aude from Pucheric. Explore some of the small local vignerons, and sample their wines.There are a good selection of quality restaurants Cafe du Midi, Jean Marc, Le Grange, La Selette where eating alfresco with a quality bottle of local wine is a great right way to end a perfect day.

Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We were sorry to leave this house as it really had everything we wanted from very comfortable beds to outside tables and sun loungers for sitting outside in the warm nights. Easy parking. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs along with kitchen, WC, bathroom and living area so most of the action happens upstairs. There is a double bedroom downstairs which...

Management response:

Thanks Alan, so pleased you enjoyed your stay and great feedback. There are times when this quiet village goes crazy with free Redbull extreme motorcycle shows on the river bank, Fete de Nationale celebrations and the olive festival through July so Bize Minervois can provide a different experience depending on when guests stay.

We had a wonderful fortnight staying at Ma Maison and highly recommend this property and village for a family holiday. The owners and housekeeper were extremely helpful, communicative and accommodating, both before and during our holiday. They provided lots of additional equipment for our three year old (cot; high chair; stroller), which made our journey much easier. The property was...

About the neighbourhood
Most villages have a fete (festival) at some time during the year ,usually to celebrate something produced locally. Bize have theirs 'Fete de Olivier' (olive festival) late July and 14 July (Bastille Day) which brings the village alive with free music and firework display

The canal du Midi is also a short 10 min drive away. Great for cycling and walking along, have a picnic or take a boat .

Another interesting village is Aigne due to its tight snail like street plan for medieval defence.

Within walking distance you can find l'Oulibo de Bize-Minervois the award winning and world famous olive co-operative with outstanding olive products of all kinds. Highly recommended.

Bicycle hire is available from 'mellow velos' based in nearby Paraza. Bicycles can be delivered to...
