About the Owner

Vanessa and Andrew Holmes. We have lived in France with our two boys for the last 13 years. We enjoy the slower pace of life and the lovely weather.

This part of France offers fantastic beaches and beautiful scenery.

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

We manage several apartments and houses on behalf of owners who live in the UK & France but due to work commitments do not have time to take the bookings themselves.

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

Kind regards.

Vanessa and Andrew Holmes.

Immaculate, spacious apartment in lovely, sleepy La Redorte

  • 4 of 5

Great base for exploring the Languedoc region. Had days out wild swimming in rivers and lakes and mooching around beautiful historic villages, and towns (Lac Jouarres, lac Cavayere, Lagrasse, Roquebrun, Bize Minervois). Coastline of Narbonne and Leucate within an hour's drive and gorgeous ( la Franqui, Gruissan Plage, le Biquet and Peyriac de mer visited and loved). Carcasonne at sunset beautiful. Struggled to eat out locally as family of 5. Very quiet neighbourhood, few restaurants, no children's menus and expensive. Tended to have lunch or snacks out and cook in the very well equipped kitchen at the apartment. There's an Intermarche next door open daily so no hassle.

La Batiste development is safe and well managed but quiet and a little tired. Pool area is unattractive with bare high wall and only 5 sun beds. More pool side furniture and trellises against that wall would vastly improve the aesthetic appearance. We were also disappointed not to have an outdoor space or furniture at Mouvedre as it is on the first floor. We were informed that we could use a communal grass area in front of the apartment and we picnicked here a couple of times, sitting on the grass. We missed the experience of being out on a warm summer's night as we have done on other holidays. Some accessible outdoor furniture and nightlights would address this.

Overall, a successful holiday and we would recommend it as a place to stay if you are looking for somewhere quiet to base yourself for exploration of this region.
