Well equipped cottage in beautiful garden.

Date of stay: September 2019

Jane was a wonderful hostess, providing all the information we needed about the area. We could buy all that we needed in the village and there were lots of interesting places to visit nearby.

Perfect relaxing location

Date of stay: August 2019

Jane is the most generous of hosts, very welcoming and full of recommendations and advice for the first time visitors to this wonderful area of France. Accommodation is to be recommended, great location and just a few steps from the canal and several choices of excellent bars/restaurants.We will most definately be visiting again. A beautiful quiet relaxing garden, wifi excellent if required.

A lovely stay in beautiful surroundings

Date of stay: July 2019

The gite was perfect for 2, comfortable and well equipped. It was a delight to sit on the terrace in Jane's beautiful garden and lovely to go through the gate from the garden straight on to the canal path. It's a short walk to a choice of restaurants and cafes, and the next village Olonzac is walkable, with a fantastic Tuesday market. Lots of places to visit in the area - we enjoyed Narbonne with its indoor market, cathedral and Roman remains. Thank you Jane for your help and hospitality!

Secluded garden, comfortable studio, lovely host

Date of stay: June 2019

What a glorious 8 days we had! The studio was very comfortable, Jane's garden was quiet and peaceful and, being so close to the canal, the evening walks were a delight! The village, a few hundred metres from Berkana, had everything - a small grocery, a wine warehouse and several excellent restaurants and for more provisions there was a small petrol station/supermarket a few minutes walk away. There is also a small lake nearby with great swimming! Thank you, Jane, for being such a great host!

A relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of France

Date of stay: June 2019

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 weeks in this gite which is situated in a delightful garden right on the canal. The gite is in a perfect location being 30 minutes from the coast, the mountains and Carcassonne. Jane goes out of her way to help you and is a wealth of knowledge about the local area. Olanzac, the next village, is an easy walk and has a good market every Tuesday. There are a few restaurants within walking distance but we ate al fresco most evenings. A wonderful way to start retirement.

Date of stay: July 2018

We had a wonderful week in a truly beautiful part of France. Lots of interesting places close by to visit. The gite had everything we needed and was only a short walk into Homps along the canal path and then on to the Lac de Jouarres. Jane, the owner, was extremely welcoming and her knowledge of the area is second to none. The weather was amazing, in fact, a little too hot on one or two days - mid to high 30's! Thank you to Jane, the dogs and the chickens for making our week so enjoyable.

Very Tranquil and pleasant holiday accommodation.

Date of stay: June 2018

Lovely location within 50 metres of the Canal Du Midi, just a 10 minute walk to the canal side restaurant. A very tranquil location and very relaxing. Ideal property for couples. the owner is helpful. I would say that if touring this wonderful area then use of a car is essential. superbly located property for touring the area and seeing all the sights. A very enjoyable Honeymoon in a lovely area. I would recommend this property to couples looking for a relaxed and peaceful holiday.

We just spent a wonderful week at Berkana. It is in a Beautiful location with so much to do and lots of pretty villages nearby. Jane has such a wealth of local knowledge and made us feel so welcome. The area and especially the garden are havens for local wildlife. A truly relaxing break. We will be returning.
