About Andrew & Fiona King
We are a professional couple who love France and the French way of life. Fiona is a teacher and fabulous at interior design and creating a wonderful home in France for us to stay. Andrew is a businessman, and a keen cyclist, although the hills can be unforgiving. We love the traditional French way of life, the food and the wine of course, but also the pace, which is a change we look for on holiday. Basic French speakers, we can get by with most things in France and gradually are improving.
Andrew & Fiona King purchased this House in 2015
Why Andrew & Fiona King chose Bize-Minervois
This is a beautiful traditional French property with big high ceilings, thick walls and lovely shutters and is great for keeping cool during the day. The property has a great pool that we have had completely relined, and had a new plant room built so that it is great for those morning lengths (albeit short) or the lounging around to cool off during the day. There is a lovely covered BBQ area for al fresco dining and several areas in the garden to sit to get shade and enjoy a glass of local wine. The property has lots of space, with a snug with 2 settees, and a very large living room for TV viewing or to get on the wifi.
What makes this House unique
The village of Bize is fabulous. 3 excellent restaurants and a great café that does wonderful food as well as glasses of chilled local rose for €1! There are two local boulangeries and a local village shop (most of these are within 100 yards from the house). The village has a swimming hole in the summer which is great for the children, where you can swim with a life guard in attendance and chase the fish that are swimming in the water beneath. The sea is 40 minutes away and the busy city of Narbonne with its historic centre and fabulous covered market. Of course the Canal Du Midi is very close by and there are too many beautiful villages nearby - but Minerve is one of the most special. Tennis is available in the village and there are lots of local attractions including mini golf in the next village.

An amazing place to stay
We had a fantastic holiday in Bize Minervois. I would highly recommend this accommodation for family and friends. The village and area are superb. Wonderful food and friendly people.
Wonderful and well appointed gite in a great location
Sizeable and well appointed property with a great pool. Lovely to be able to walk in to the village to the shop / bar / restaurants in seconds. Bize itself is a picturesque and peaceful place with good connections to larger towns and cities.
Would recommend for family holidays.
