Celine was very nice and helpful and welcomed us with meny dilicious things. We had a good time in her apartment and she gave us a good instructions about activitis in the neighbourhood. We didnt like Coursan very well but it was very nice in Grussian and neighbourhood and meny hiking and biking paths. The apartment was very clean and nice and offers everything you want and more than that
Celine was an amazing host! Her home is immaculate and we had plenty of space for our 11 night stay. Celine went out of her way to welcome us with a beautiful aperitif. This set the tone for the whole stay, any questions we had Celine responded to really quickly via email. She gave us terrific suggestions for our vacation, leaving many pamphlets.
As we are on an extended holiday the time in Celine's home also gave us the opportunity to wash clothes and cook meals rather than continually eating out. Thank you Celine.
Nous avons séjourné chez Celine du fait d'un mariage d'amis et la maison était un vrai havre de paix ! Un bon moment dans cette charmante maison rénovée, et des petites attentions agréables pour nous accueillir,Si l'occasion se présente nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir!
Although Celine was unable to meet us herself she had kindly arranged for a friend to meet us and show us how everything worked. She had also left us a wonderful basket of fruit, flowers, croissants and a well stocked fridge with milk, water and other essentials. We had everything we needed and more.
The house was very clean and tidy, the bed linen lovely cool white cotton. everything was just perfect.
Location wise it's a great base from which to go exploring the local region. Mountains, beaches, Cathar villages, salt lakes and nature reserves. My favorite was the 'La Clap' area.
We really enjoyed our stay in Céline's beautiful house in the centre of Coursan.
Its exactly as the photos, its perfectly clean with all modern facilities. It's well located for visiting Narbonne, Béziers, Canal du midi and Narbonne plages.
Céline had prepared some delicious local food with some really tasty gaspacho, serrano and melon au porto. It was perfect !!
She also recommended some excellent restaurants in the region.
J'aime bien Céline et sa maison :-)
Quel bon week end on a passé chez céline! Accueil parfait, maison très jolie et très agréable. Céline est flexible sur les horaires ce qui nous a permis de partir tranquille.
bon séjour aux prochains chanceux!

J'espère que vous aussi vous tomberez sous son charme !

Wishing you a pleasant stay in a charming and welcoming little house !
