With options for al fresco dining at both the front and rear of the property, and restaurants close by this makes for a very convenient location without the need to drive far.The accommodation is well thought out, impeccably clean with quality crockery, cutlery and glassware (often overlooked in rental accommodation). The Gite is very spacious and has all the modern conveniences in the kitchen that you would want for home cooking if you choose to prepare your own meals, a bonus was the surprise delivery of freshly laid hens eggs from the owners hens next door and made breakfast even more of a delight. I would certainly not hesitate to return to this beautiful Gite and superb canal side location. Nicole and Michel the owners live next door which was a great bonus as they have taken great care with their Gite to ensure a comfortable stay, which is not always the case in properties that are managed remotely. Parking was a bonus too, available adjacent to the property.

Sylvie was very helpful is getting us settled in and it was a joy to stay in the apartment. We spent a week based in Carcassonne and travelled widely up to the north and down to the Pyrenees in the south doing hill walks and treks through the beautiful countryside. As a result, it was always a pleasure to arrive back in the evening after a long day and relax in the apartment. It is clean and well maintained and is superbly situated if you have hired a car as the underground car-park is 2 minutes walk and only costs 20 Euros for a week's hire. I would certainly recommend it! Francis
