It is clean and well cared-for with everything you need for a short break. The swimming pool was fabulous and we enjoyed swimming even in mid-October. The outdoor table tennis was great fun. Anne Marie and Adrian are good, discreet hosts. The setting on the canal du midi is lovely and there are nice views from the garden. We visited Carcassonne and the coast around Perpignan during our stay. The village has an excellent boulangerie but was quiet when we were there outside peak season. There were three adults on our trip and we had all we needed. The shower is brilliant! The cottage is excellent value for money and just as described in the advert.

We were warmly greeted by Carol and her son upon arrival and given a guided tour of the facilities - the pool, the 'honesty' bar, garden, fruit trees, bikes, and a whole other number of bits and bobs. The property had a games console, books and board games for the kids to use - which they did (Haven't laughed as much in ages as when I watched my 8 year old daughter give my husband and son a run for their money at Wii Golf!). The kitchen was very well equipped with appliances and utensils - nothing a miss. Plenty of hot water available throughout the day. Visiting in October provided a mixed bag of weather, so the availability of heating was very handy. The entire property was spotless and the gardens to the rear were very well maintained. The location of the property for us was perfect. Access to the canal by a rear garden gate. From there you can walk into the village and beyond. We utilised the bikes that were freely available and cycled a stretch of the canal, which was easy and good fun - a perfect option with the children. There is a baker in the village and a bar. We used both and found the proprietors friendly. Prior to arrival we had a wonderful fixed menu lunch at L'idiot du Village in Capendu, a few miles away. Would highly recommend it. Lovely local french cuisine, and pleasant hospitality. Highlight of our stay was a day of hands on cooking instruction at 'Canal du Midi Cooking' school a few miles along the road. We had such a great day with our hosts preparing and cooking our 3 course lunch, while meeting new people and sharing stories. All with a few glasses of wine of course! A trip to Bijou would not have been complete without a trip to the old Cite in Carcassonne. Fabulous medieval walled city, with museums, restaurants, bars and shops a plenty. Something for everyone there, including a tree top trail for our kids 5 minutes from there at Lake La Cavayere. All in all a great few days away, in stunning surroundings in a beautiful property with the friendliest and most helpful of hosts. We will definitely be back!

Inside was lovely; tastefully decorated rooms providing contemporary comfort whilst retaining so much of the character of this wonderful old property. We loved it! After outings with the kids to various beaches (Guisson, Le Franqui and the lake just outside Carcassonne called Cavayere) we returned in the evenings to the peace and relative cool of the pretty courtyard where we enjoyed some great family BBQs washed down with plenty (too much!) of the delicious local wines. The village itself was a proper working French village with real French people! It had all the amenities we needed but was wonderfully free of the flocks of tourists that have slightly spoiled some of our French holidays in the past, particularly in Provence. All in all we loved the house and the area.
