I stayed for a week recently during a motorcycle trip with a friend. The house suited our purposes very well having a large room on the ground floor where we could leave the bikes off the road. The house is on a narrow road so it's not an option to leave a car outside for any length of time but there is adequate parking in the town just a few minutes walk away.
The two double bedrooms are a decent size with a small single off the upstairs room containing a unit for hanging clothes and plenty of drawers in the main bedroom. Downstairs there is an area just outside the bedroom with plenty of room for storing personal possessions.
The living /kitchen/dining room was well equipped with everything we needed and double doors opening out onto a a small balcony which caught the sun most of the day. There is no oven just a hob and microwave so don't plan on cooking any roast dinners.
There is a cloakroom upstairs which is convenient for the upstairs living area and bedroom and a small shower room downstairs which is basic but perfectly adequate with plenty of hot water.
The location is good, being just a few minutes walk from the shops, restaurants and port area where you can take a boat trip on the canal or just watch the world go by. The path along the side of the canal is very popular with walkers and cyclists if you're of a more energetic persuasion.
To summarise, the house was comfortable, well equipped and well maintained and we enjoyed our time there.
I must also mention the owners who couldn't have been more obliging and provided us with
not only comprehensive details of the 'do's and dont's' of the property but also driving tips, local customs and areas of local interest.
Peter was a very obliging and welcoming host and made our stay fun and enjoyable. Easy walk into the town. Plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area. Well worth going to see Carcassonne, Minerve and 9 locks at Beziers. We will hope to return to the area again.
