Beautiful old stone built Manor house situated among vineyards and fields in a small quiet ancient hamlet on outskirts (1 km) of small country market town.
The hamlet was originally the site of a Roman villa in the 3rd century AD, said to be the home of the pro-consul Cassius -hence Fons Cassius (the fountain of Cassius) later corrupted to Fouscais.
The house now comprises 6 bedrooms (all with ensuite bathrooms) and an old orangerie in the grounds converted into a twin bedroom with kitchen & bathroom. There is a big family kitchen/ dining room with large cooking range, family size fridge and dishwasher, a salon (living room) with English cable TV, an office with wireless internet, and a laundry.
Sleeps 10 comfortably- 13 at a stretch
The house is furnished with decorative bygones -the owner is a designer/decorator in London), and is comfortable though not ultra-modern ,and more suitable for reasonably laid back people who prefer ambiance, style and history over highly efficient modernity. It is situated amongst vineyards and conveniently close to (500m) exit 57 on the A75 autoroute, 22 kms from the Mediterranean and in the centre of the beautiful countryside of the Languedoc region-
