This part of France offers fantastic beaches and beautiful scenery.

Carcassonne castle is a must to explore. It is breathtaking.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards.

Vanessa and Andrew Holmes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

July 2012

We had a lovely holiday in La Batisse, the weather was lovely, the apartment with its terrace was perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a glass of wine. we spent lots of time cycling. We will recommend the apartment to our friends. Steve & Mel.

Sept 2012

Having spent quite a few weeks travelling around France, it was lovely to stop in your apartment and enjoy a week relaxing in the sun and swimming in the pool. A lovely way to end our travelling. Thank you. Miss Taal.

Another wonderful time at La Batisse

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed here last year, though in a different apartment, we knew we would have a lovely holiday. Beautiful old building, converted sympathetically. A large two bed apartment, equipped with all that is needed for a self catering holiday. So nice to have our own outside terrace this year, last time we stayed in a first floor apartment. The pool area is clean, with the nice addition of climbing plants this year; the pool itself clean and cool. Excellent location, supermarket right next door- but you don't hear any hustle or bustle, easy walk to boulangerie, boucherie, la Poste, couple of local restaurants and 10 min walk to canal du midi. Further afield there are medieval hilltop towns, markets, boat trip, 30 mins from Carcassone, vineyards for wine tasting, and bike to hire. We will definitely be back again.

We were impressed by the cleanliness of the property when we arrive. Easy access but very secure.

Facilities were excellent. Location is rural but with good restaurants a short drive away and is a central point to explore surrounding area. Would highly recommend.

We (a family of 4 with one 18 and one 16) had a good stay, only let down by the weather.

The property was very good, spacious and well equipped. The site was very nice, although the pool area was a bit bare, and we could not work out how the sauna worked !

The village has all the things you need, in walking distance, although being fairly small the choice was not huge.

The surrounding area has lots to do with great scenery. Particularly recommend :-

White water rafting

Ropes course by lake Cavayere

Inflatables on lake Cavayere

Owner's Response: Hi Dave, thank you for your review, I am really pleased you had a good holiday and liked the apartment. The pool is newly installed and is currently waiting for plants to be placed around it. Next year all the apartments we rent out will have their own loungers for the pool. Some already do have them. The temperature was low for July, it is normally 35 to 45 degrees in July and August.

Spacious apartment in quiet village

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment in a beautiful courtyard setting. Very clean and well maintained swimming pool and apartment. Shot stroll to the canal du midi. Very handy for the supermarket and lovely bakery. The apartment would benefit from a 'house file' giving more information on the area/where to put rubbish etc and some sun loungers or deckchairs for outdoor use.

Owner's Response: Hi Diane, Thank you for your review, I am really pleased you liked the apartment and pool. There is normally a folder in each apartment we rent out with all the information about the apartment and where to take rubbish etc. the guests who are in the apartment found the folder tucked away in one of the cupboards, it has now been put back in place on the table. All the apartments we rent out will benefit from having two sun loungers each from the beginning of next season. Once again thank you for your review.
