Great apartment overlooking Canal du Midi

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 nights here in August (2 adults, 2 children) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is full of character but with all of the mod-cons you could ask for. We found it to be spotlessly clean and appreciated the information on the region provided by the owners. The pool is not heated but that was no problem in the heat of summer. Views are nice from the front (over the Canal) but we particularly liked the large terrace at the back which was a suntrap with distant views to the mountains. All in all, highly recommended and a very good base for travel across the region.

Lovely!! A Beautiful converted character property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment, in the quaint village of Poilhes, directly on the canal du midi, for 7 nights during the summer. The pictures really don't do it justice. The property has been converted (from a mill I think ..?) to a very high standard with high end fixtures and fittings. It was more than well equipped and we enjoyed many nights cooking in the kitchen and eating in the outside space with it's stunning views over the Black Mountains. Having eaten at restaurants prior to our stay here it really was a home from home experience. There are also two lovely restaurants in the village if you want to eat out. Beverley, the owner provided us with an extensive list of places to visit during our stay, some of which we did seek out and were not disappointed. The property was very clean, the queensize? bed in the main bedroom was huge and very comfortable. The outdoor pool for our sole use was an added bonus. It was cold however this was refreshing and a welcome respite (despite the involuntary shrieks as you first hit the water) from the midday heat . The pool has the sun from around 11am until 3pm but the outside space on the first floor, equipped with a lovely big table, chairs and a further two lounging chairs had then sun well into the evening. I cannot speak highly enough of this apartment and its facilities and we would happily return. Our 10 year old daughter also loved the experience.

Poilhes is in the heart of Cathar country, located between the towns of Narbonne and Beziers and is on the Canal du Midi. Beziers being the nearest airport. The area is filled with fortified villages and ancient ruins. Fantastic sights nearby include Minerve, Carcassonne, Aigues Mortes, Beziers, Cap d'agde, Narbonne, Rennes le Château. Spain, Pyrenees, Coullioure and many more. The two nearest beaches are Valras Plage and Narbonne plage. These have sandy beaches that run for miles. There are great seafood restaurants and ice cream parlours. For children there is the animal reserve at Sigean, Agro branching, ice skating, canoeing and much more. For foodies there are the great food markets and the famous indoor food market at Narbonne. Antique Faires at Beziers, Montpellier and Avignon are all close. Vide Greniers (car boot sales) are great for finding antiques or collectables. Golf is nearby and for those looking to relax you can just sit by the canal and watch the boats go by.
