We have just spent twelve days in this delightful home from home property, full of charm and character. There is so much attention to detail in the property and all the amenities you could possibly want. Pouzols Minervois itself is also a charming village, it is very quite and perfect to come back to after a busy day exploring the surrounding area, a car is necessary. There are many beautiful villages in close proximity all take around ten minutes by car, Homps, Bize Minervois, Le Somail, and Olonzac to name a few. Slightly further afield you have Minerve, a medieval village set above a gorge, a must to visit, and not forgetting the cities of Narbonne and Carcassonne. If you are looking for a beach Grussian, Narbonne Plage, and Leucate are all under an hours drive. Pouzols Minervois is in a beautiful area of France, which is full of vineyards and plenty of Cave-Co-operatives where you can simply the local wine and the weather is glorious. We cannot recommend the area and this Charming Village House enough and will definitely be back.
We have just returned from a lovely holiday in this first floor apartment.
Booking was easy, and Nathalie responded quickly to email enquiries.
The property was clean, spacious and comfortable and had a good assortment of pans and cooking utensils for cooking (important for me as I have food allergies and struggle to eat in restaurants). The pool was lovely - spacious with loungers and deck chairs and a gate restricting access from the grounds into the pool area, but not to the pool itself. Some of the gym equipment did not work but not a big deal for us. Off road gated car parking shared with adjoining gite and was big enough for 5 cars.
Washing line provision for drying pool towels and washing. Lovely fig trees in the garden (& can eat the fruit!!). Argens Minervois is a pretty canalside village. There were 2 restaurants and a food shop in the village (bikes available for use for the bread run etc) and Supermarkets (Intermarche, Lidl, Aldi,& Spar) within 5 miles.We enjoyed many walks along the Canal du Midi (some lock gates had cafe's and restaurants) and the local lake 5 mins from the apartment.. Narbonne 40 minutes by car, Beziers 1hr, Carcassonne 1 hr, Perpignan 1.5 hrs.
Good base for exploring the area - so many places to visit within an hours drive. Minerve warrants a special mention as so pretty and only 25 minutes drive away and nice walks. Plenty of leaflets in apartment and guides books (in French), you will not be short of ideas for visiting towns, monuments or wandering the canal network or hiring boat on the canal.
Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would like to return in the future.
