Great week had by all
We had a wonderful stay at the Old Winery. The property is really well equipped, clean and comfortable for a group of 8 (6 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 1). During a very hot week at the end of August the pool was a real benefit. The steps down were a little tricky for our youngest but they are gated - and can be locked - so they were never a concern.
We enjoyed eating outside on the terrace and the kids made use of the garden and play equipment during the cooler mornings.
The village is quiet but lovely. We made use of the bakery, butcher's and pizza takeaway. There is a play park for young children at the centre of the village too - easily walkable.
Plenty to do within easy driving distance. It's a wonderful part of France and I'm sure we'll be back to explore it some more.
Communication with the owners was excellent throughout. We would certainly recommend staying at the Old Winery.
Thank you so much for your very kind 5 Star review !
- We would love to see you all again - ....How about next year with all your friends who stayed earlier in the year - We can accommodate up to approx 22 people - Go on treat yourselves - Yippie !

Lovely house in a beautiful village.
Well equipped with all you need and Netflix on a widescreen, great when kids get tired !
Jay and Melanie so helpful, pool invaluable as we were there in a heatwave! Table tennis and trampoline in the shade of the trees a great extra.
Pool smaller than we expected but kids still had a ball in it. The weather was exceptionally hot during our visit so air con in all of the bedrooms would have been better , there were fans in all of the rooms.
Overall fab and would love to return and explore more of the area
Thank you so much for your 5 Star ***** and very kind Review of our lovely Holiday Home.
- Yes, at 32 up to 44 +Degrees that week it was a Record Breaking scorching week here in the South of France. Phew SCORCHIO Hot !
So glad that you and the children had such a really great time - Be great to see you all again one day !

Old Winery end of May 2019 party of 4 adults 5 children
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Old Winery in Canet - the property worked well for our party of 9, which was a couple of families sharing this stunning house. Jay met us in the village and was very friendly and full of advice that helped us to plan our week ahead. He also showed us around the house and made sure we understood how everything worked. This was really appreciated as the Old Winery is extensively kitted out - a lovely heated pool, compact but lots of fun (our children had to be practically dragged out each night for bed & bath, they loved it!). There is also a great gas BBQ, a brilliantly appointed kitchen, smart TV with Netflix & English channels and not forgetting the private and we'll cared for gardens, including a massive trampoline, swings, boules and table tennis.
The house itself is beautifully decorated, the beds unbelievably comfortable and the whole place was really clean and obviously Mel & Jay love it. It came through in all our interactions with them.
Mel & Jay have been easy and reliable with all communication and looked after us. I'd happily recommend the Old Winery to you for a relaxing and fun family holiday. It's an easy day trip to places we enjoyed such as Carcassonne, Gruissan, Sete and Narbonne. The whole area is stunning. We flew into Perpignan from Birmingham and the drive to the Old Winery is easy and less than an hour.
And by all means, enjoy the wine on offer via the honesty box - it was delicious!
Thanks Mel & Jay.
Thank you so much for your terribly kind review.
It’s was so great having you all here too - Lovely Families !
Great to hear you had such a fun time.
Hope to see you all again soon.

We love this place
This is the second time we have stayed here and have no doubt we will return again. The house is beautifully decorated to a very high standard and extremely comfortable. It is very well equipped including access to an all important stash of local wines. We have two teenage daughters who spent most of the fortnight in the lovely pool and on the decking. A nice local pizza restaurant is a 5 minute walk away plus you can also take a very pleasant longer walk of 30 minutes or so to 2 other local restaurants if you want a change. There is a gas bbq in the gardens if you prefer an evening on the decking. This is perfect for a base if you want to explore the region but we were more than happy spending most of our fortnight on the property because we were all so relaxed and happy there.
Hello Paul and Family,
Yes it was great to see you again this year, the weather was Fab wasn't it ! - So glad you enjoyed yourselves so much.
We'd love to see you all again in the future, for a third time !
Good Luck in the year ahead to you all.

Lovely barn style Old Winery - near the sea
Melanie and Jay.....We really enjoyed our week at The Old Winery. We loved Carcasonne, Pezenas, Collioure ....The house is great, very spacious and it is clear that lots of love and attention has been invested in it. We wish we had more time here and are very happy we found the Old Winery.
Thank you !
