Guestbook comments from the manager

"Le Bobo is an absolutely beautiful building, furnished & decorated with great taste. The rooms are stylish & spacious with real attention to detail & quality (the best pillows - impossible not to sleep well!). Samantha & Daniel & delightful - very helpful & attentive while giving guests plenty of peace & privacy. Not to be missed"

"The old stone house is truly beautiful, the room we stayed in was Trés chic! Samantha and Daniel were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed."

"We've stayed in many B&B's in Aude and Le BoBo is head and shoulders above the rest. A beautifully renovated property tastefully individual in its decor and run by Sam and Danny who are a charming couple who can't do enough to ensure your stay is warm and welcoming. Our room was classed as a standard but was way above standard in our eyes. Bize is a charming little town full of character and some very nice restaurants so forms a great base for exploring this fantastic part of Southern France."

Wonderfuly restored traditional village house

  • 5 of 5

This house has all you could ask for in a village setting. 4 huge bedrooms all with en-suite, well equiped kitchen/diner, two comfortably firnished reception rooms and a very private garden/patio area. The property is in an excellent position to explore between Carcassonne and Narbonne, and is very close to some stunning sites of special interest. Our hosts were wonderful, helpful with advice and suggestions, and on hand for any problems. We were 5 adults staying for a week and we have vowed to return. We cannot reccomend this property highly enough.

A very special place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for an idyllic French rural holiday, look no further than Le Bobo.

This beautiful house is in the heart of Bize-Minervois, is stylishly and sympathetically restored, with a large living area as well as a lovely private courtyard. We booked the whole house for self catering and found it very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. I heartily recommend staying in The Dragon room, though all the rooms are beautiful. The (English) owners are very helpful and provided a warm welcome. We hope that they'll join us for a drink the next time we stay!

The village is very pretty, with a river running through it that's great for swimming. It has good local amenities including several great places for eating & drinking. Bize is a convenient base to explore the villages of Languedoc, is near the Canal du Midi and around half an hour's drive from Narbonne, Carcassone and Bezier.

We fell in love with Le Bobo and with Bize-Minervois and really didn't want to leave!

A good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The property is nice and very clean. The owners were very helpful and they resolve very quickly the small difficulties we found. They offered an exhaustive information about the village and its surroundings. Le bobo is a singular building with an original decoration. Rooms are quite big and well-maintained, and they have comfortable beds.

I am sure my friends and relatives will be happy there if they decide to visit this place.

French luxury

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic old character house beautifully furnished and great welcome from the owners. Very comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Great location in quaint little village with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The added bonus was the river for swimming, beautiful countryside walks on our doorstep and good location to visit other attractions in this part of the south of France, albeit we need to stay again as there were so many we never got to see! Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely stay here again.

Superb Setting

  • 5 of 5

We came here on a last minute thought to get some sun and what a delightful surprise. The most beautiful place we have stayed, 3 couples and we found it hard to chose which room to have out of all the delightful choices. Great lounge where we could all relax comfortably and made so welcomed at the start by Owners who filled us in on the local restaurants. Had the best weather to boot and can certainly recommend this self-catering gite of great value. The village is very quaint with a river which is open to swimmers throughout the summer. We will be getting back here and bringing our other friends for a dip it is so inviting.
