The kids loved the pool and the garden (and all the wildlife) and we found the property very comfortable and really well located for beaches and things to do. Hope to visit again.

The owners clearly take a lot of care and time to make sure their guests are not disappointed. We had a fantastic time here, enjoying the peaceful location and comfortable gite. N.B. very comfortable bed and good shower. Best of all is the pool. It is well designed with planting around and is a wonderful temperature. Good loungers and shades, and underfoot paving that does not burn your feet in hot sunshine. Generous sized swimming towels are provided. The pool is shared with the owners but on the basis that guests have sole access to it for several hours of the day - it worked really well for us. Without a car, we were grateful that the village centre was within a few hundred yards and we did all the shopping we needed there, including our croissants (two bakeries) each morning. Bize has its own charm, with a riverside where you can swim, and medieval streets. We explored the beautiful surrounding area by bike. Narbonne is a flat ride, a day trip, mostly away from much traffic, and some of the route traffic free along the Canal de la Robine. Or you can choose hillier routes - the area seems popular with cyclists. The owners are warm and friendly: we felt welcomed and would happily return.
