My wife and I were traveling around Northern Spain and the South of France last month and we stayed at a great little cottage (or as the French call it, a “gite”)on the Canal du Midi in Millepetit near the town of Trebes. After bouncing down a quiet country road, past a grand old Chateau, we came upon a picturesque...

Visiting our hosts Heather and David for the first time we were charmed by their bucolic location and immediate proximity to the Canal du Midi, a major reason for their investment in a townhouse style cottage there after traveling the world for many years. The two level cottage itself was intimate, crisp, and freshly done with a second level deck...

About the neighbourhood
Rural though not remote, Millepetit is located in a superb position on a meandering and photogenic stretch of the world famous Canal du Midi. The Cottage is part of the original stable block and set one row back (about 50 m) from the Canal. It is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and apricot orchards. As there is no public transport a car is highly recommended whether to shop, see the local sights or follow the Cathar Trail. Bicycles can be hired both at Millepetit and in Trèbes. Secure bicycle storage is available.

The life of the Canal passes in front of you as Trèbes is one of the main ports of the Canal, with luxury barges, houseboats, the occasional yacht and little “Popeye” boats. Cyclists, walkers, hikers and bird fanciers, even the occasional hunter find t...
