Wir hatten einen sehr freundlichen Empfang durch unsere Gastgeberin mit vielen nützlichen Informationen über Umgebung ,Restaurants mit gutem Essen, Möglichkeiten der Freizeitgestaltung auch außerhalb der schönen Badestrände. Brigitte ist eine sehr freundliche, offene Gastgeberin, die einem das Gefühl vermittelt, sie schon sehr lange und gut zu kennen. Nicht zu vergessen ihren Mann Jacques mit seiner humorvollen Art. Das Haus entsprach voll und ganz unseren Vorstellungen, ein Haus zum Wohlfühlen. Die Landschaft um Salles dÀude ist sehr abwechslungsreich und schön .
Brigitte was a wonderful, warm-hearted host! We felt incredibly comfortable and were really happy to have the possibility to stay at this cosy place in such a nice little french village!!! Thanks a lot again! It is definetly worth it!!!
We have rented the Holiday house near the seashore for a family holiday and did not regret it! Brigitte was a great host, she and her family have shown us what french hospitality means. We felt very comfortable in Salles d'Aude and enjoyed the charm of this typical french village. It is not far away from beaches and other towns like Narbonne or Béziers, so there are lots of opportunities to explore the surrounding area.
Thank you for a great holiday, Brigitte!
