Great hospitality from Heather and David at the cottage, based on the working farm at Millepetit on the beautiful canal du midi - they made us a superb dinner accompanied by wine from the farm, and we sat out on the bank, listening to the owls and watching the fish rise to the surface, drinking in the atmosphere, feeling we had truly arrived in the midi. Great start to the holiday!
The cottage is of a very high quality and extremely comfortable, had a very good night’s sleep. It’s a rural spot, yet with a nice feeling of life going on around you, and the little port-town of Trebes very near. It took us just over half an hour to walk in, and we sat out at a quayside bar watching the canal boats and just enjoying the ambience. The area round about has stunning scenery, great opportunities for limestone gorge walking and wild swimming in crystal clear rock pools. Opened our eyes to the pleasures of the Languedoc countryside, will definitely return.
While camper vanning around the south of France and looking for a quiet out of the way place to overnight, we found David and Heather’s B&B and restaurant on the banks of the Canal du Midi. While we didn’t stay in the B&B (we camped outside in our camper) we did dine with them. Mmmmmm, Mmmmmmm and Mmmmmmm, Heather is an excellent cook. We sat in the afternoon on the banks of the canal sipping drinks and watching the world go by (well barges, boats, cyclists, joggers and people just out for a nice stroll). After drinks we had a lovely meal. We slept like logs and woke in the morning in time to go for a stroll along the canal banks before breakfasting on the side of the canal with our hosts. Great location, food and company, we’ll be back.
