REVIEWS FROM OUR GUESTS

We are listed on a number of holiday letting sites and our guests have made lots of comments on The Cottage and the area. Here are a sample of some of our recent reviews:

.... This is great location within the bounds of a busy working farm. That gives it added interest as you really feel you have become part of the French countryside rather than just a visitor and that was an aspect we enjoyed. The cottage, a converted stable from the nearby chateau, was charming and the hosts David and Heather (Australian and English respectively) were a mine of useful information and advice about the district and with their interest in food were able to guide us to good eating options as well as tourist destinations. The ability to stroll a few yards to a table on the banks of the canal and watch the boats go by was a great attraction. Just a few miles from Carcassonne and just a short distance to the canal port of Trebes. Millepetit is an ideal location for exploring this part of the region.”

"We loved the cottage, it was a fantastic base for our short stay. David made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of advice and tips. We are extremely grateful for the use of the bicycles as the Canal offers excellent opportunity for cycling. We would highly recommend Millepetit and would love to come back again."

Jolie petite maison dans un hameau au bord du canal du midi à 3 minutes en voiture de Trèbes, idéalement située pour visiter la région très bien pour 2 personnes qui cherchent le repos et la tranquillité . La maison est très bien équipée et très propre nos hôtes sont des gens charmants, discrets et le voisinage accueillant . Vous pourrez profiter de longues balades au bord du canal à pied ou en vélo. Dommage manque de temps j'aurai volontiers participer à un cour de cuisine française donné par notre hôte anglaise et j'aurai eu le plaisir de déguster ses pommes de terre sarladaise une prochaine fois.”

We had a very happy holiday at Millepetit. David and Heather made us very welcome and were unobtrusive, but helpful hosts. We made good use of the folder they had prepared with excellent tips for places to go and things to see. The cottage was spotlessly clean and is well equipped. We loved its proximity to the canal, which is a peaceful, calm place to walk. The little courtyard garden is very private and relaxing.”

welcome to Millepetit
awards 2017
The whole experience, from start to finish was a delight. The cottage was as described, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.... The hamlet itself was a genuine mix of holidaymakers and working farmers with grape and olive growing the two main activities, as we were there during the wine harvest there was a little, infrequent noise from the passing machinery , but this just made it more interesting. It was an excellent base for touring the area from Carcassonne to Beziers and much in between. Heather and Dave were the ideal hosts, entertaining, helpful and informative but without ever being intrusive. They also run a successful cookery school there with no shortage of clients and having sampled their cooking, I can see why. Being just a few steps from the Canal du Midi was a real luxury for walking or cycling along the towpath or sitting with a cold beer (or two) and waving to people on the passing boats. The triple locks on the canal at Trebes were fascinating to watch. The road down to Millepetit is a tad bumpy but it does ensure that nobody drives too quickly but it is so worth the effort when you get there. It was one of the best holidays we have had and will certainly be back.”
