Cathy and Pierre have created a beautiful, comfortable and impeccably furnished apartment with access to their gorgeous outdoor patio covered with fragrant wisteria. In the center of the lovely village Rieux-Minervois, it is within easy walking distance to all services and centrally located to the many fascinating sights of the region. Cathy was most welcoming, providing us with everything we might need to be comfortable (including fresh eggs, bread and a bottle of Regional wine). She offered lots of excellent advice on what to see in the area. We had the opportunity to spend one delightful afternoon with Cathy and Pierre drinking wine on the patio, sharing our stories and getting to know this welcoming and interesting couple. It was a wonderful stay and we wish it had been longer.

My husband and I loved staying in Cathy's place. The studio was very clean. The bedroom was spacious with a high ceiling. The kitchen was open, large, and well stocked. The bed was comfortable, with tasteful linens. Cathy is definitely a super host, friendly, warm, and always available for assistance. Parking was free and next to the front door. We loved the area, a terrific location to explore, and a friendly village. The village's Romanesque church just down the street is a gem. We highly recommend Cathy's place.

Perfect place for stay a few days and visit, in our case by car, Carcasonne, Toulousse, Perpigná, Narbone, etc. The description of the house is like it is said in the web,completly equiped, with two floors connected by a thin stairs. Cathy was a very nice host, receiving us kindly and giving us all the info we needed. In sum up strongly recommended, don't doubt contacting Cathy!

My girlfriend and I spent a wonderful week in Cathy's apartment. The apartment is more spacious than it seems when looking at the pictures. It is fully equipped, e.g. including a dish washer, extra blankets, a coffee machine, roller shutters at the windows and all you need to cook. There is no WLAN in the apartment, but Cathy offered us to use theirs in their house. Although the bed is quite small, it was still good enough for me (I’m 1.91m) and my girlfriend, too. The apartment is situated in Rieux-Minervois centre facing a little street north-east (no traffic, sun in the morning). The neighborhood is quiet, a typical French village. Upon arrival, Cathy welcomed us with fruit, milk, coffee and cake and provided linen, sheets and towels. She is fluent in English (Spanish, too) and her husband and she are very welcoming and sympathetic people that tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They provided us with hints on what to see, weather reports and general information about food markets and flea markets in nearby villages/towns. We enjoyed ourselves at Cathy’s very much and we can absolutely recommend staying there!

Cathy was a lovely host. She went out of her way to make sure we were looked after. The place was clean and well equipped. One thing to note is the lack of wifi in the room, however it is accessible in the main house. There isn't much to do in the village, but the local bakeries and grocer are a two minute walk from the front door and nearby (driving) towns are breathtaking and more touristic. Overall a great getaway and a pleasant experience.

Cathy’s newly-converted gîte is situated in a quiet side street of Rieux-Minervois, a pleasant and relaxed French village. It is comfortable, well-equipped, and ideal for two. Rieux is a good location as a base for immersion in Cathar medieval history, within easy reach (by car) of places such as Carcassonne, Minerve, Lastours and Peyrepertuse, also for exploring the vine-covered Minervois region in general, nearby stretches of the Canal du Midi, the forests/gorges/caves of the Black Mountain, and with easy access (on the autoroute) to the Mediterranean coast. Cathy welcomed us warmly, and was friendly and helpful throughout our stay, making useful suggestions for places to visit and being very amenable and responsive to any requests. She and husband Pierre also provide a very tasty lunch at their adjoining restaurant, and don’t forget to give Emmanuel a call at the local Château Rieux for a little “dégustation”! All in all, a very enjoyable holiday – thank you! Helen and Steve, 12-21 August 2014
