    Description

    The house was built in 1860 by a rich winemaker's family. We bought it from their housekeeper and completely restored it, but keeping all the original features. It is very large and many guests have described being in the house and enjoying the garden and pool as "a destination in its own right". Most mornings start with a 2 minute walk to the boulangerie for fresh bread. After that the hard part is deciding whether to stay by the pool, go to the beach or explore the many medieval villages and towns. Or maybe hire a bicycle to explore the Canal du Midi and enjoy the dedicated pathways. We keep details in the house of an English-speaking bike hire shop in the next village that will even deliver the bikes to you. They have bikes for children of all ages.

    In another neighbouring village you an hire an iconic 2CV for the day onwards! You might want to use one of those to explore the many vineyards and chateaux that offer wine tasting.

    We have been to the house several times, and feel we are only scratching the surface of an area rich in culture and with a strong heritage, but with lots of tourist activities as well.

    Unusually, there are two TVs, both with English channels, so that can stop family arguments!

    You can reach everywhere within the village within a 10 minute walk, that includes restaurants, bars, and just admiring the place!

The village has a traditional village caf in the market square, wine bar, restaurant, boulangerie and small grocery. A large supermarket is less than 2 miles away. Cycles or boats.can be hired nearby. The house is on a very quiet street with lots of parking, every building is from 1860 or earlier.
