This is a pristine conversion of a gorgeous canal side cottage - connected to another Gite and the main house where the owners live. It is very spacious equipped really well. There are loads of really thoughtful details - games for children, loads of information about the area, really well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom. There is a lovely patio with Barbeque and shared use of a lovely pool with loads of sunbeds, umbrellas. The hosts are generous and helpful but not intrusive at all. A perfect place for a family holiday in a fabulous part of France
We are so glad you all had a lovely holiday. We spent a lot of time decorating the Gites and making sure they had everything for the guests. Your comments mean we got a lot of things right.

A lovely small cottage overlooking a Canal de Midi lock
A great position near Carcassonne and the coast amid a huge wine growing area.
Pool is very good and so was our comfort,
Good quality fittings and charming hosts who live next door
We are so glad that you had a lovely stay and enjoyed your time in Canal View and all the area has to offer. It is always nice to hear that guests have enjoyed their time in Canal View.
Great position,clean and well equipped accommodation.Owners lovely very helpful and welcoming
It was lovely to meet the 2 of you. It was a shame your son was injured before the start of the U20's Rugby World Cup, so you were not able to enjoy the thrill of him playing for England in the competition.
My husband and I are traveling in France, Spain and Portugal for 2 months and we have about 2 weeks left of our amazing vacation. Languedoc Holiday gites was by far our favourite- I was sad to leave and truly hope we may be fortunate to return again. Our hosts Adrian and Anne-Marie are wonderful- helpful with suggestions on sights to see, routing concerns, restaurant recommendations, wineries to visit, anything we asked they were more than happy to try to accommodate. The gites are lovely- so cosy, spacious, clean, well supplied, decorated tastefully. The beds are the best! The location is fabulous- directly across from a lock on the Canal du Midi- a great source of entertainment. It was very peaceful, we had the best sleeps.
I can’t recommend it enough. Merci beaucoup to Adrian and Anne Marie for helping to make our holiday so special.
It was lovely to meet the 2 of you and hear all about your travels through Europe over a 2 month period. Thank you for your great comments and if you ever return to the area it would be lovely to welcome you back

Great location with added peace and tranquillity
Spent a relaxing short break in Canal View. Each day started with a short walk along the canal to the local boulangerie, followed by a coffee opposite. Ann-Marie and Adrian made us feel very welcome. The house was just perfect with easy links to Carcassonne and pretty Aude villages. Plenty of room for 4 persons and a complimentary bottle of wine.
It was great to meet you all. We hope your house hunting goes well. It is a lovely area to both live and holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back if you are in the area again looking for your ideal holiday home.

Most enjoyable comfortable stay in Marseillette
Clean, comfortable, all you need in kitchen, great shower. Friendly, welcoming hosts. A good position to explore Carcassonne and the surrounding area. Loved walking along the canal each morning to the bakery.
Although it was a short stay it was lovely to meet you both on your tour of France. It is wonderful to know that our Gites are also appreciated by guests from another continent. Enjoy the rest of your trip and it would be great to welcome you back if you are in the area again.

The village of Marseillette is close to Carcassonne in the southern Minervois region of the Languedoc. It sits between the Canal du Midi and the river Aude. A typical French village with a population of around 700, following alongside the Canal du Midi which is extensively used by hired boats & privately owned yachts and barges. It's a fabulous location for seeing the area or if you need your batteries recharging then you don't need to travel too far to see authentic French life. We have a wonderful Boulangerie, bar, hotel & hairdressers in the village.
The property is at the edge of the village and virtually surrounded by vineyards. The local industry is wine making!! Plenty of picturesque places to visit close by and historical sites. If you like walking, sight seeing, bird watching or wanting to just sun bathe then everything is here.
Trebes close by, offers all the necessary facilities such as; Grocers, petrol, supermarkets, chemist, newsagent, banks etc. All major stores and supermarkets are found in Trebes & Carcassonne. There is a mini supermarket in Capendu only 2 kms away open 6 days a week and sells most items. Marseillette is a great base for exploring the beautiful countryside and discovering new local wines. Cathar history, Beziers, Minerve, Caves / Grottos, Narbonne & the Mediterranean Sea, Spain are all close by.
Golf: Carcassonne has a beautiful 18 hole Par 71 - 5,758 metre golf course playable all year round with views of the Pyrenees and which is only a 20 minute drive away.
