This charming villa offers spacious, well-designed and beautifully presented holiday accommodation. It has a variety of areas where you can sit outside and relax enjoying the lovely swimming pool and gardens. Special features include natural stone walls and exposed beams which, together with the modern decor and furnishings chosen with very good taste, make this a holiday property of exceptionally high standard. The property, now fully renovated, was once part of a wine merchant's estate. (The owners live in the grounds in the main house which has its own separate garden.)

The villa comprises a large, well-equipped kitchen and separate dining area opening out through glass doors onto the delightful sun terrace and pool area. Upstairs is a spacious and comfortable sitting room with patio doors opening onto a charming covered terrace that has a lovely view towards the Montagnes Noir. There are 3 double bedrooms all with en-suites, the rooms are large enough to take a cot if you have a baby. The tranquil village welcomes you with a well-stocked shop offering day-to-day essentials including fresh bread and croissants; it also has a restaurant. The village is surrounded by the vineyards of one of France's largest wine-producing areas, the Minervois, with views extending to the foothills of the Haut Languedoc. It's just a short drive to the fascinating medieval city of Carcassonne, and the Mediterranean coast is just an hour away. Close by there are other lovely villages to explore, the Canal du Midi and Olonzac with it's great Tuesday market.More
