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.
