We spent 10 glorious days here basking in the sunshine - the gite has everything you need, is spotless and the bed is extremely comfortable -a perfect base to explore Bize and the surrounding area. Karen and David are very friendly and helpful hosts. The village of Bize itself is very picturesque and has enough amenities for day-to-day needs - two lovely bakers, a small supermarket and a few restaurants. We particularly liked Cafe du Midi for both lunch and dinner - very reasonably priced and friendly service with some great food. We loved the terrace area in front of the gite with plenty of shade and ate breakfast and lunch there most days. The pool area is immaculately clean and surrounded by lovely gardens. The village is a good base for both local walks as well as nearby towns (Narbonne, Carcassonne, Gruissan). Fabulous walks along the Canal du Midi in many of the surrounding villages with lots of choice of great restaurants. We hope to return one day. Thank you once again Karen and David.

A wonderful location overlooking the bustling Place Carnot, and only a short walk from the beautiful medieval town, the canal and the river. Well equipped, and just so comfortable. We spent many evenings (even in October!) sitting by the open windows drinking in the atmosphere, and of course, some of the local wine! Friendly and helpful owners who could not do enough to help, as well as an efficient and welcoming local contact. Everything you could need, from banks to restaurants are just a stone's throw away. I'm actually reluctant to post this review, as I wish I could keep this apartment for myself!
