We booked this accommodation based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews on tripadvisor and we are so glad we did.
We stayed here for two nights and had an incredible time.
The house is located in the Minervois wine region. Beautiful scenery with vineyards amongst small French towns. It is exactly what we hoped for.
Couat d'Aude is one of these small towns. The house itself looks over the town church and onto the vineyards. It is probably the most beautiful house we have ever seen. A room that must be about for times the size of a hotel room. Perfectly clean. Decorated in the French style.
There is a communal lounge area and terrace where breakfast is served. Sylvie, the host, served breakfasts on the terrace - crepes, pastries, homemade jams, yoghurt etc. her husband Christophe showed us the wine that they make in a cellar in a nearby town and gave us a tasting and demonstration of the winemaking process.
The hosts were both so welcoming and kind. Nothing was too difficult. They helped us book the best local restaurants and helped with all our trip planning questions. They made our stay an absolute pleasure.
Also, the house has fast wifi.
We recommend staying longer than two nights. There are so many interesting towns, the canal etc to visit. Ideally 5 nights would be best but unfortunately we have to keep moving.
