Great location for sightseeing, wine tasting and cheese eating!
When we arrived we were met by neighbours Raban & Fadela to settle us in, which was lovely. (A small welcome pack had been left as well.)
Cecile's property was more than big enough to accommodate our family, consisting of two adults and two teenagers, in three good sized bedrooms. There are plenty of beds and chairs available throughout and a huge dinning table with beautiful pieces of old wooden furniture. The kitchen is stocked with all sorts of utensils and crockery and has everything you need and more. There is also a patio and garden area for eating out in the evenings with fairy lights which was a nice touch.
The house is a little tired in places and in need of some modernisation, which I know Cecile is starting to complete, as this his her first season. (Storage space in the children's room would've been an advantage, plus extra pillows, cotton bed sheets / linen in all the bedrooms and an extra fan... or two!) As the weather is so hot at this time of year we rarely used the living area, (but if you are going in the cooler months be aware there is only 1 two seater settee.) The village of Moussan is close enough to walk to for the bread and croissants in the morning before or after your lovely morning swim in the communal pool, or after a spot of tennis. The pool is only a short walk up the hill and is kept spotlessly clean! St Marcel De Aude has plenty of shops for other provisions but is a 3-5 minute drive away. The beaches are around 40- 50 minute drive away and Franqui plage was definitely our favourite. The river swimming at Ribaute, (45 mins) or at Reals , (45 mins the other direction) was fabulous and the canoeing at Roquebrun, (55 mins.) Nothing much happening locally apart from the odd festival evening, when things can get a little louder, but generally a quiet street. We ventured out to Pezenas (50 mins) for the Friday evening market and local wine makers and street food. We loved the quietness and relaxation of the area, but this does mean you have to drive anywhere for nightlife IF you want it...(which we didn't!) It's lovely in the evenings playing cards on the patio and tasting the local wines and cheeses! The figs growing in the garden are a great treat, especially if you slice them and add some local cheese before putting them in the oven to cook!
Overall I would definitely recommend staying in this house and am sure that Cecile has great plans for it! Good luck with your future lettings!
Maison au calme, bien situee
La maison est de bonne taille pour 6 personnes. L'interieur n'est pas recent mais la literie est confortable et l'endroit est tres paisible avec la commodite d'avoir une piscine a proximite et de nombreux petits villages a visiter. Tres bon sejour.
