    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    This unique dwelling in the Languedoc region was built over one hundred years ago by the great-grandfather of the current owner and was used until recently as a family wine cellar. The property was carefully converted into a home by your hosts. The same family has lived in this village since the 17th century.

    The home is filled with interesting furniture, paintings, drawings, photos, and crafts. A terrace covered with antique tiles provides an ideal spot for outdoor meals. It overlooks the pool and gardens and has a great view of the countryside beyond.

    The warmth of the village, the charm of the countryside, and the history of this family dwelling combined make it an ideal retreat as well as a base for exploring the many cultural and historical aspects of Languedoc.

    Les Oliviers is a good base to explore many historical places, wine cellars, surrounding villages, and visit the near by seashores of the Mediterranean.

    Attractions in the area

    The village of Minerve, 7km from Les Oliviers, was a strategic Cathars point and an important stopover for the pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella in Spain during the Medieval times. It was also the home of Simon de Montfort.

    Fontfroide's Abbey, one of the France's most visited Abbeys is located just 25km away.

    Carcassonne, the largest and best-kept Medieval Castle in all of Europe, seen in a number of International films, is a definite must for anyone staying in our area. The town of Carcassonne also deserves a visit. The Canal du Midi wanders around the town's edge. The covered market should not be missed while an eighteen-hole golf course awaits the real afficionados.

This was our 4th visit to Les Oliviers. Our first was in 2002 and the house has improved each time. The owners really work to keep it up. We love Les Oliviers for a laid back vacation in an area which isn't packed with tourists. The Languedoc area can keep you busy for weeks, wine tasting, exploring all the little... more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I have stayed in villas across Europe and therefore have a reasonable idea of the level of service that should be provided. Sadly, I felt that this property (also known as Maison Platane with Pure France, did not achieve the level expected. Specifically: 1) I do not expect the wardrobe in the main double room to be completely full of... more
