3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Rieux Minervois, Aude, Occitanie
Maison Galloise is a large family Villa set within an acre of land with secure front gates leading from the Vineyard into a private, spacious front garden with secure parking for several cars. There is an extensive rear and side garden with fruit trees and great outside 'play' area for children and adults alike.

The villa boasts a very private swimming pool which is heated early and late summer up to 24 degrees. In high summer you will find that the sun will heat the water up to 30 degrees with it staying around 25/26 at night so the pool heater tends to be turned off as it will work in reverse as a fridge and cool the pool water. The pool size is 480 (15ft 9ins) x 920 (30ft) with walk in steps 120 (3ft 11 ins) x 200 (6ft 7 ins).
The back area that adjoins the pool has an extensive terrace with shaded areas for eating and sunb...

Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Communication prior to the visit was excellent with rapid and helpful responses to questions, including lots of extra information provided about the house and the area. Information in the folder in the house useful, but in need of pruning and updating. The house is charming-very rural- and, although fairly modest, is well equipped for a family stay. The bedrooms, however,...
