My business partner and I stayed on the top floor of this Gite in September. I could not ask for a better accommodation. It was centrally located, offered parking for our car, and was close to everything we needed to access.

The heaters came in handy as it was a bit chillier than I expected and having a washing machine and bathtub sealed the deal. We enjoyed shopping and cooking our own meals but also took advantage of the local environment. The bakery, pub, and the amazing restaurants really made coming back to base each night a true pleasure. My business partner had to take a side trip to Aix and it was simple to schedule her train and hotel from the computer.

The owners were nice and responsive to requests and questions and the gite cleaner Lisa was very helpful and kind as well.

I will absolutely be staying here again, in fact I was just checking availability and noticed they were on trip advisor! I would have left a review sooner had I known.

Hoping to open a business in Couiza soon and all the friends and contacts I made while there were just spectacular.

(Don't forget to visit the "meat" shop across the street from the supermarket, Betrand is lovely and went above and beyond to find me what I was looking for!)

Liked best: The central location, free parking, clean, and with beautiful views
Liked least: It could get a bit noisy in AM and PM rush hours, but I knew I was staying in centreville and expected that it would not be as dead silent as a place in the country~NO complaints

“Beautiful riverside apartment in centre of Couiza”

Myself and my partner stayed in Couiza in May 2012. The apartment is well equipped, clean, in a good location for shops and amenities in the village. We were particularly impressed with the attention to minor details including spare towels for the beach, picnic equipment, and a helpful introduction pack on the area. The highlight of the aparment is the river side terrace and garden accessible. Couiza is a small village but offers a couple of good restaurant choices, bakery, and small shops - there's also a good supermarket just on the outskirts of town. The apartment is perfect for a couple wanting to explore the region with lots to see including castles, natural hot springs, lakes for swimming, caves for wine tasting, and local towns with excellent markets with local produce. There's plenty of walking routes from the house to Renne la Chateau and surrounding vine yards . For those looking for more adventurous walking the Pyrenees is less than an hours drive away.
