La Maison Verte is a two-story village house facing South with a lovely long view over the village gardens towards the vineyards and the Corbieres Mountains.
The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en-suite; a generous, well-stocked kitchen, two sitting rooms with comfortable sofas and chairs and a dining room which seats eight. It also has electric heating, fireplaces and a wood burning stove.
French doors from the sittingroom lead onto the terrace which has a view over the garden; a heavenly place for glasses of cold wine and to watch the swallows wheeling amongst the ancient walls of the houses. The private, stone walled garden has a table and chairs under a vine-covered pergola and cheerful deck chairs. The house is situated in rue des Lavandieres, The Street Of The Washerwomen, a little lane where few cars ever pass....

Maison Verte was quite simply perfect. It was an integral part of a wonderful holiday and was as relaxing and inspiring as the surrounding countryside, idyllic village and fantastic local food.

I like to read between the lines … to look at countless photos of potential vacation properties for one that says “I get it”. So, when I came across Maison Vert … I stopped in my tracks. I literally didn’t believe that the picture of the dining room really was at Maison Vert and not a stock photo thrown in...

La Maison Verte was just perfect for us - beautifully, and imaginatively, decorated and furnished, retaining the sense of history of the building and surroundings while providing us every comfort for a very relaxing break. Ingrid and Christopher were charming and helpful hosts, with excellent suggestions for outings, shopping and good restaurants. It was bliss to return to Caunes after...

Management response:

Thank you for a lovely review. It was so kind of you to take the trouble to say such good things about it. See you soon for another happy week or two, Ingrid.

About the neighborhood
La Maison Verte is in Caunes-Minervois, Languedoc, a village of approximately 1000 people, twenty minutes from Carcassonne.
It is set on a quiet cul de sac facing South in a street of medieval houses. Pop round the corner and up to the mairie where Marlene's shop sells all the things one most likes in France, wine, fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese and almost anything else you'd like or need. Marlene, sometimes known as the village radio station, knows about everything and everyone in the village..........
Just opposite her shop and the mairie, is a wonderful little restaurant at the D'Alibert hotel. It has a lovely renaissance courtyard in which to dine in the evenings under the stars. Frederic is the fifth generation of owners of this beautiful building and restaurant. A...
