La Fumade is a large French farmhouse, renovated with everything you might need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday in the hills of southern France. The garden borders a year-round stream and the house is surrounded by the protected forest, orchards, hiking trails, and mountains of the High Languedoc Natural Park.

Less than an hour’s drive from the Mediterranean, the house gives you easy access to the sea as well as the rivers, lakes, mountains, and wineries of the Languedoc. The medieval village of Olargues, only a few kilometres away, is officially listed as one of the most beautiful in France.

The rustic house is part of a small hamlet of three houses and a number of barns and stone ruins, situated on their own just outside of a village. Nestled in the hillside, the house and garden are quiet and private.

This was our third stay at La Fumade, and I cannot say enough good things about it. The weather this time of year is stunning, the house is comfortable, spacious, beautifully renovated, and easily accommodates two or three couples or small families. I spent a lot of time by the pool, and at night, well, dining outside under the wisteria-laden... more

We drove down from England, overnighting on the way, and arrived late and in the dark. The directions and sat nav coordinates could not have made this easier. The next day we woke to silence and isolation. This was exactly what we needed. We spent the next ten days pottering around the local area, food and drink is excellent (although... more

This home is perfect for the family that wants all the comforts of home in a great location! We couldn't have asked for more. It was easy to find and not far from large villages, but still secluded in the beautiful mountains. The views are amazing. We were able to easily come and go from the home to do several... more
