  • South of France

    "South of France:- NARBONNE AND THE REGION The words conjure up all sorts of romantic notions; hot, dry countryside, fields as far as the eye can see of vines swaying and bulging heavily with fat green grapes of all sorts of varieties, Chardonnay, Syrah, Sauvignon all just waiting to be turned into delicious wine, the Mediterranean, warm and inviting with miles of golden sands and small, hidden fishing villages with tempting dishes of the day. It’s all of that and more. We have found the French to be welcoming and helpful, they will even put up with my rubbishy attempts at fracturing their language but will help by putting you right with the pronunciation .The Languedoc accent is quite strong and even my wife, who has a good command of the language found it difficult at times. We were staying in a gite in Nevian, about 11k west of Narbonne which we found on (www.homeaway.co.uk/p578554a). Its quite big with three bedrooms upstairs with bath/shower and downstairs shower and toilet. The kitchen is reasonably large and all of the equipment works. I must say at this juncture that while the place could not be described as high tec and cutting edge we found that within a short space of time we got used to the typically French arrangements. The garden and pool are by far the best feature, private (except for owners house to one side) and M. Albert cleans it early every morning. Therese and Albert are delightful, friendly, helpful and with some perseverance we managed to hold some erratic conversations and exchanged family and work backgrounds. Nevian has some shops and a friendly bar. The Butcher(excellent meat), Boulangerie and mini-market will service most of your needs. However we did a big shop in the local Geant and visited other towns in the region with markets on most days of the week where good, local regional fayre can be found. Cheese is good, as is the oil, garlic, bread and of course wine. Don’t be shy about visiting the local caves and sampling the wines. All of the villages seem to have independent growers and producers but I would advise a little research where the best wines and oil can be found. They are not expensive and you will be helping the local economy"

  • A* accommodation, great communication from owners

    "We'd echo the approval of previous reviewers and add... We've rented many times, but Linh & Guillaume's introduction to the apartment and the town is by far the best we've experienced - and their kindness as we left, in donating us a bucket for our daughter, who was embarking on a car journey after an night of illness, was much appreciated! This is the most immaculate (decor/maintenance/cleaning on arrival) place we've stayed. The location is ideal, if you plan to use public transport on holiday: the directions Linh & Guillaume will send you to get from the train station to the apartment are foolproof, it's 2 mins walk to/from a stop for the key No 1 tram line, one minute from a stand for Montpelliers's excellent bike-rental scheme, and the short walk to Place de la Comedie & the start of the Old Town is flat, pleasant and always feels safe. Also perfect if you have a car, since secure parking in the basement is available at no extra cost. Staying here you'll feel as though you are living in the town, rather than visiting as tourists. We enjoyed living in the centre of town so much we lost enthusiasm for using it as a base for sight-seeing - though Montpellier is excellently placed for such day trips. It would be worth googling 'Domaine d'O' (in a suburb to the north, accessible by blue (no 1) tram line) - an arts & cultural centre in grounds of chateau, with free concerts, in newly-constructed, outdoor, Roman-style theatre, throughout the summer. Great atmosphere - bring a picnic or buy from the lovely cafe on site. The Estivales festival, off Place de la Comedie, each Friday evening, which Linh & Guillaume will recommend, is also v worthwhile, if you're interested in local food and wine. All in all, this apartment is an ideal base for a family trip with young adults/older teenagers, as the town has a vibrant, young feel to it and its location means everyone can be free to do their own thing. Loved being able to make good coffee in the apartment too...! Thanks. Hope we can get back some time, either for the rugby or for more summer sun in your lovely city..."

  • Quaint apartment in convenient location

    "Our hostess was very charming and helpful. We stayed in the Syrah apartment which was spacious and reasonably priced. We enjoyed sitting out in the garden enjoying a baguette or pain au chocolat. And the local Florensac wine was really good. The apartment was conveniently located to many interesting towns. And while it is close to the main highway, it is secluded enough to still feel like you are in the country."
