We enjoyed Marie Claire's hospitality and sharing her beautiful gardens and pool. Loved the view of the vineyard and gardens from the apartment. It is very well equipped with everything you need for preparing lovely meals and relaxing. Sleeping in loft spaces with low ceilings in Summer is challenging and certain bits are overdue updating like the batgroom, but everything works. Marie Claire was very hospitable. We loved the area.. visiting cities, beaches, sailing and kayaking.
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.
