The perfect summer holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting the place with a family of 4 (2 kids) already twice and had a splendid time! The property is incredibly beautiful, spacious, with lovely rooms that are decorated with taste. You can spend your time with bathing in the purist rivers, excursions to a advanturous hiking park or visiting Narbonne, Beziérs,... We enjoyed it very much!

Thanks again for the hospitality!

Wonderful holidays!

  • 5 of 5

So we spent our family holiday in this beautiful place already twice!

We spend two weeks in August in the orange house towards the little stream.

Our kids (3,9,20) enjoyed their time at the super-nice pool (no chloride!) or strolling through the wild surroundings. The compound is relatively vast and you can always hide or easily get lost. It actually feels like a little secluded village itself.

Last time the owner family spent their holidays in the main house. They also have lovely kids which was so great for ours.

While the super-friendly owners told us how to find the best hidden restaurants or vineyards in the area much valuable advise could also be found in a little folder that was placed in the house.

What else can I say?

Do not mis the bakery and butcher in Olargues. Do jump from the rocks into crystal clear mountain water some 5km south of Olargues! Get fresh oysters at Narbonne market hall! Dine at 'Les Combes'!

Wonderful Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We spent our holiday already twice in this beautiful and charming home. We lived in the orange house towards the little stream.

Our kids - now 3, 9 and 21 - enjoyed their time at the pool (no chloride!) and the wild surroundings.

Last time the owner family happened to spent their holiday in the main house! Lovely people who also have 3 (well educated) kids who either socialize or leave you to yourself -as you please. Many of the secret places like restaurants or wild water streams in the area are depicted in a little folder in the orange house. We were told many more secrets by the family.

We also got to know a few of the village people and bought porcini and vegetables from them.

Olargues and is a short 5 min ride by car. Do not miss the bakery and the butcher there!

We will come back if and when we can!
