The owners are dog-lovers and welcome pets. There is, however, a STRICT POLICY on dogs being taken off the property to do their business. The Maison Cachée courtyard is intimate and contains a large number of plants making the dining terrace / swimming area too close in proximity for dog foul or urine. Dog-friendly walks in the vineyards or canal-side are within 500m of the house....moreless

About: Julian and I are both Canadians who have come to own, work and run the luxury hotel barge Athos, on the Canal du Midi. We have been based in Argeliers since 2001 with our young family.
