    Description

    This 18th century, three storey town house is ideally situated in the centre of the busy town of Olonzac, the delightful capital of Langeudoc’s Minervois region, and provides comfortable and spacious self-catering accommodation which is perfect for a couple.

    Les Martinets is full of character and benefits from a number of stunning original features which have been sympathetically restored. It was thoroughly renovated and refurbished in 2007, providing all the modern comforts one expects whilst complimenting the property’s original charm.

    • FREE Wi-Fi Internet access.

    You enter the property directly into a generous open-plan kitchen and living area which has a dining table with seating for four. The fully-equipped kitchen has a large fridge-freezer, cooker, microwave, washing machine, and plenty of storage space. There is also a WC on this floor. The property’s dramatic centrepiece is a spectacular original staircase with ornate banisters. You will also see many other period details throughout the house, including exposed beams and original shutters.

    On the first floor is a light and airy sitting room with a traditional working fireplace which can be lit for open fires in the cooler months. There are two sofas, one of which can be made into a comfortable double bed. The TV has English-speaking Satellite channels including BBCs 1 and 2 and BBC News 24, plus a DVD player. Music CDs, DVDs, books and games are also provided.

    On the next floor is the spacious master bedroom, with high ceilings, exposed beams, and an elegant metal-framed bedstead. The beautiful blue mosaic-tiled double shower is the highlight of the generous shower room next door, which also has a WC and basin.

    There is an open staircase leading to the small private rooftop terrace with a barbecue. The perfect spot to relax and unwind, this sun trap. On a clear day, you can see all the way to the Pyrenees. There is an abundance of swifts, swallows and housemartins to watch in spring and summer.

    A welcome pack including locally produced wine and fresh milk and basics will be waiting for you when you arrive. You will be welcomed by a friendly bi-lingual Briton who lives nearby, who will show you around the property and will be happy to give lots of useful advice about how best to enjoy your stay in Olonzac.

    The house is decorated throughout with original artwork from a local artist. All the furnishings, towels and bed linen are provided free of charge. There are no additional charges for cleaning, electricity, linen or towels. All rooms have electric heaters for the winter months, and logs can be bought frothed local shop. We can also provide tennis racquets free of charge, and mountain bikes can be hired for a small charge. There is free parking just one minute’s walk away. This is a no smoking property and is not suitable for pets.

    The Town
    Olonzac is a charming small town conveniently located in Minervois region of the Languedoc-Roussillon area of Southern France. The area is well known for being the most productive wine region in the world, and Olonzac is surrounded by vineyards, with a beautiful view of the Montagne Noire (Black Mountains). On a clear day the Pyrenees are visible to the south.

    In addition to its natural beauty, this picturesque town provides for all the needs of visitors. There are cafes and restaurants, bakeries, butchers, a supermarket, post office, and independent shops, and also a dentist, doctor’s surgery, and pharmacy, which are all within walking distance of the property. On Tuesday the local French market, one of the best in the area, sells a wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other local produce including chickens, cheese, olives and fish. Along with a vast array of fresh food there’s also a wide range of stalls selling linens, straw baskets, clothes, shoes and gifts. Market day is always an exciting day in town and the local residents welcome visitors warmly.

    Olonzac has a beautiful municipal park with a pond for the swans and terrapins, three tennis courts, a large children’s play area, and of course an area for playing boules. The Lac de Jourres is a short drive or a pleasant walk from the town centre. Swimming and water sports are available at the Lac de Jourres in the summer, and it’s a restful place to sit and read at anytime of the year.

    A deposit of 25% is required on booking, and full payment is required eight weeks before arrival.

    Enquire directly about prices for short breaks or extended stays.

    We had a fantastic holiday. The house was perfect, very well equipped and great position to explore the local area! The Bel restaurant was excellent as well as the Auberge de St. Martin( a few mins away in Beaufort) – both highly recommended. We especially loved the Tuesday morning market and filled the fridge with delicious goodies! – Bon Vacances!
