“My family and I adored our holiday. We swam lots in the gorgeous swimming pool, read a lot in numerous well placed outdoor seating areas (lots of shade, which was welcome during the heatwave) and slept so well in comfortable beds. The house is very well equipped, lots of air conditioning, lovely bathrooms and a wonderful balcony with stunning views - the location is wonderful, with pretty and traditional villages only minutes away. Denis and Hilary are most generous and attentive hosts. We highly recommend this glorious holiday house.”
“We had a wonderful week in France and managed to visit several local place in the mornings and back for a locally made lunch then an afternoon swimming in the lovely pool the boat trip on the canal was fabulous and the evening meal at the restraunt by them side of the canal very French. Due to a road accident in England we missed plane to Beziers so had to go via Perpignan which for us would have been a better option to get to the house anyway and bigger airport with more travel options. Great holiday would love to return next year. Thank you”
“Denis and Hilary great hosts. Very comfortable home. Great countryside location in vines and olives. Beautifully kept pool and garden. ”
“Everything was absolutely perfect during our 15-day stay at Hillary's and Denis' place. The location couldn't be better (close to all the nearby villages, rivers and even beautiful Narbonne, yet secluded enough to provide for a truly relaxing vacation), and their house is just fabulous. Communication was excellent, recommendations where on-spot, and at the same time they were impeccable guests that took excellent care of our place in Barcelona and our cat. ”
“We have just had a very successful long weekend swap with Denis and Hilary. Their home is very comfortable, attractively furnished and well equipped with all mod cons. The house has excellent views across the vineyards, especially from the roof terrace, the perfect spot to relax with a drink and watch the sunset after a fun day out. The location is ideal for exploring the many picturesque villages and towns in the area, and also the Canal du Midi, as well as the coast. We had a very enjoyable day cycling alongside the Canal, and another cycling around the lagoon at Bages (just south of Narbonne) where we cycled across boardwalks and salt flats and were rewarded with the sight of a flock of flamingoes flying overhead. All of this was within half an hour’s drive of the house. Hilary and Denis were excellent hosts who gave us lots of great tips on what to see and do in the local area, where to eat etc. They were also very good at responding to any calls or texts to answer our queries. We enjoyed sampling Hilary’s delicious home made jams and also the local Minervois wines. We had the pleasure of meeting Hilary and Denis before returning to our home to find it immaculate, our animals well cared for, and everything just as we had left it. We look forward to doing another swap with Hilary and Denis soon as it was a delight and there is so much more we’d like to explore in the beautiful area where they live. ”
“Denis and Hilary are great hosts especially as they were in situ for my stay in their downstairs accommodation exceptionally exchanged for Covid complications. I therefore got first hand information, village gossip and friendly support. Normally they exchange the full three bedroom house. The rooms are tastefully furnished and the TV with satellite reception has many channels including UK. Very good wifi also available. The roomy master bedroom I enjoyed had a large really comfortable bed. The garden and views over the vineyards are exceptional. Probably the best in this lovely picturesque village. A good sized pool with deck chairs and seating in various parts of their stepped land allows one to enjoy coffee and or meals and sun and shade according to choice at all hours. Walking out of the house into the village center in a couple of minutes or across the adjacent vineyards all part of a truly lovely French country experience. Car parking in the lay-by just by their house is perfect and the road is probably also the quietest in the village. There is a limited village shop but the supermarket is only a few minutes drive away. Certainly hope to return some day. ”
“We had very easy communication both before and during their stay. Hilary and Denis took great care of our home, looked after the plants and even sent us progress reports on some garden work we were having done. Just lovely guests.”
“It seems so long ago now. But we loved having you to stay with us. ”
