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.

When we arrived on a Monday afternoon, Wendy and Pat were there to greet us and made us feel very welcome indeed. The Gite was airy and spacious and had all mod cons. There was ample parking in front of the house and the door to the rear lead to our private patio area and on into the lovely garden and pool. What not to like?-! During our stay, we went out each day visiting vineyards and nearby places of interest (of which there are many) and would return home, as we liked to call the gite, to relax and share a glass or two of wine. Dispite the proximity of the busy road, the evenings were quiet events and we were able to enjoy sitting outside and enjoying the view. Our neighbours in the next door gite were delightful and also two friends joined us for a few nights in the spare bedroom which worked well. This was aided by the fact the the loo was separate from the bathroom and directly across from it. A newly built Lidl with a fantastic wine section is just a few minutes drive away as was the Intermarche which had the edge foodwise. Capestang is a pretty old town with several restaurants to look out for, and of course the Canal du Midi (the main reason we chose Capestang) is within walking distance from the centre of town (or you can park up over the bridge) and walk or bike along the canal path. Alongside the canal there is just one bar/restaurant and this is reasonably priced and gives you a good view at the passing boats. The Gite and Capestang is well placed to visit Carcassonne, Cather ruins, Beziers and Narbonne both of whom have long sandy beaches. If you are a wine buff then there are several domaines you can visit in particular Chateau Perdiguier outside Maraussan.
