Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an excellent family holiday in this lovely villa. The villa is just as it looks in the photographs.It is very clean and well looked after. It is large and very well equipped with very good quality bedding and crockery. There is wi-fi and British freesat channels on the TV. The pool is a good size and the cover means it does not get cold. There are plenty of loungers and it is secluded and not overlooked. The garden is large and enclosed and would be ideal for children to play.

The owners provided excellent service during booking and

whilst we were on holiday. They were very welcoming and informative when we arrived, provided a welcome basket of essentials - including wine!- did a minor repair the next day after notification, sheets were changed after one week,

There are plenty of lovely places to visit in the surrounding area. Highlights were Carcassonne, La Grasse, Narbonne, and castles if you want to be busy. The boys hired road bikes from Mello Velo and enjoyed long cycle rides in the local hills. I was happy to sit by the pool and look out at the surrounding vineyards which stretch for miles.

The house is in a hamlet but there are no shops or restaurants so you do need to drive if you want to eat out.

If you are looking for a quiet, rural location surrounded by vineyards, in a very comfortable house with a lovely pool then you will find it in Les Vignes. Highly recommended!

Wonderful two week stay in Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a two week stay at Les Vignes. Two families, both with two adults and two children (aged 8-13). The property was perfect for us having two larger rooms for the adults and two smaller rooms which were perfect for the children, all with en-suite.

The villa was very clean and the fixtures and fittings were all good quality. The kitchen was very well equipped. Lots of room for everyone.

The outside areas were also lovely, plenty of loungers and comfortable outside seating areas and lots of space. The garden also a good size and big enough for us to play ball games with the children. Pool was also clean and a good size.

The views were amazing, vineyards everywhere you look from the back of the property, which is where we spent all of our time. And the sunset behind the hills was an added bonus!

The area itself is very quiet, lots of vineyards to go wine tasting very local (walkable), we didn't find any local/walk to restaurants, would need to drive to go out to dinner. Some very good supermarkets, 10-30 mins drive depending on where you preferred to shop.

Narbonne town itself is lovely, lots of sights to see and great markets to visit, the beach is vast, probably a good 30-35 min drive though.

The information provided at the villa and contact from the property managers/owners was also really professional.

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from wonderful week at Les Vignes with my family (kids 14, 12 and 9). The property is very well-equipped, spotlessly clean, big enough for everyone to find their own space to relax and the kids loved the pool. Reliable wifi, good news for teenagers! Great local restaurants - La Luciole was the best food we had on holiday and Les Calicots was also excellent. Enjoyable family day trips to Narbonne Plage, canoeing on the Orb river, Cathar castles and the Canal du Midi (a car is essential). Would definitely return.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have rented similar properties all around France every year since 1990 and can say that the amenities and condition of Les Vignes were second to none. We were most impressed with the location for access to interesting areas in all directions of the compass from the buzz of Narbonne and vast beach at Narbonne Plage through to the gorges of Minerve, the history of Carcassonne and the calm of the Canal du Midi

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the villa and was greeted by a lovely lady who showed us around the villa and explained everything in great detail. She informed us of the different places to visit and the days that certain villages have their local market on. Best places to find locally grown produces.

The villa is well equipped with all the necessary items that you would require in your own home. The furnishings in the villa are of an excellent standard. Very clean and tidy.

The private pool is lovely. It has a cover that keeps the water warm throughout the night which is wonderful if you decide to have an early morning swim. The pool is maintained by a local gentleman as are the gardens.

The village is very quiet, which suited us. The people we spoke to were very polite. Lovely neighbours.

Would we go again to the villa. YES. It was a beautiful, relaxing place and I would like to go again with all the family. We were told that the scenery later on in the year is beautiful as the vines start to change colour. If possible we may try and get a late booking in for another week in the year.

Return to lovely rural location.

  • 5 of 5

Last year six of us spent two most relaxing weeks at Les Vignes. This year there were eight of us.

Les Vignes - a very spacious, comfortable and well equipped villa. We all felt very much at home there. None of us tripping over each other. Brian, Nova and the villa manager Carol were extremely helpful before the start of our holiday and during our stay.

Most of our time was spent around the pool area ' the acquisition of the necessary tan '. Our evenings were wonderful when we sat on the terrace overlooking the pool, enjoying excellent wine [ some from Le Voulte Gasparets ], eating great food and watching the glorious sunsets. A truly relaxing time. What more could you ask for!

We did manage to drag ourselves and explore the area. We visited Carcassone, Narbonne, Lagrasse and enjoyed a two hour trip on the Canal du Midi. There is still so much to enjoy.

We all had a wonderful holiday and have come away with a great many memories, photos and video from this and last year. None of us wanted to return home and we would love to return to les Vignes . A great holiday for adults and families.

Les Vignes is in the beautiful hamlet of Gasparets, in the heart of the Corbierres wine region. The hamlet boasts two chateaux, producing superb wine which you can sample at personal wine tastings. The area is steeped in history with the famous medieval walled cite of Carcassonne only 20mins drive away. Gasparets is close to the Canal du Midi where you can take a leisurely canal cruise, walk along the towpath or hire a bicycle. Nearby is Lac de Jourres where the whole family can enjoy a day of swimming, sailing, kayaking/canoeing, surfing, or just laze away the day at the waters edge sipping a cool drink from the cafe. Narbonne, with its stunning cathedral is only 15mins drive from the villa, with the fabulous beach at Narbonne Plage only a further 10min away. Within 1 hour drive are the Pyrenees famous for its skiing and walks through the mountain villages. The famous coastal village of Collioure, the beach at Port Leucate and the wonderful old city of Montpellier are close by.
