Great value for money. Sleepy village and having a car is a must but has 3 restaurants within walking distance as well as the Canal du Midi which was great for morning runs. No aircon but 2 fans, room overlooks the road but noise was minimal even with the windows open and owner also provided ear plugs just in case. Lovely terrace to eat, beautiful hared courtyard and quiet swimming pool.

We absolutely loved staying at Denise's place! The room is beautiful, comfortable and has a private bathroom. It opens onto a balcony where we enjoyed a wine in the evening and she was kind enough to provide us with a delicious breakfast in the morning. The town and surrounding countryside are stunning. Denise is a lovely host and we highly recommend staying here!

We had a fantastic stay with Ian and Denise. The room is beautiful and has its own private terrace where we ate our delicious breakfast which was prepared by Ian every morning. We had full access to their beautiful home including their kitchen, BBQ, and swimming pool. The location is great, 2 minutes from the canal du midi where there is a lovely restaurant. Ian and Denise provided us with bikes so we could cycle along the canal du midi and explore the beautiful french countryside, vineyards and villages. Ian and Denise are so helpful and obliging, Ian even dropped us to a nearby town one night when we were going out for dinner and came and picked us up later that night. I really could not recommend staying in their place highly enough. It was hands down my best airbnb experience. Thank you so much for a great holiday!

Ian and Denis were very attentive to their hosts. We had a good breakfast at the morning, it was very pleasant to begin the day like that!

We had an enjoyable stay with Ian and Denise, thank you both. Beware of the Pizza Restaurant across the road, at the time of our visit it was only take away. The pizza was far from the best we have eaten in France. Our hosts were most helpful and we had great and enjoyable conversation during the evening.

La habitación está muy bien. La casa está cerca de restaurante y tiendas, tiene piscina y sauna (aunque la sauna no la vimos porque hacía 30°!). Denise fue muy amable y muy disponible. Una buena experiencia.

HI everyone,
We live in a village in the beautiful south of France between Narbonne and Carcassonne. We are early retirees and enjoy good food, our fabulous wines and discovering new places. I am a massage, beauty and aromatherapist. I enjoy painting, reading and cooking/baking, a little yoga to keep fit and languages.
My partner Ian, a keen photographer enjoys cycling, walking and like me, meeting new people.
Should you decide to stay with us, you can book a relaxing massage or facial during your stay.
We have two bikes for use to cycle along the famous Canal du Midi or meander through the vines and/or discover our neighboring villages stopping for a glass of wine/refreshments or a picnic on the way. Picnic lunches are available
