Charming home situated on a pedestrian-only street of a medieval wine village. Minutes to the Mediterranean sea or the mountains; beautifully surrounded by vineyards. Enjoy the vie en France in this comfortable one bedroom home.

The space

The petite maison de vacance comfortably accommodates three adults (or family with children - not advisable for children under 4 years old) in the three-level house connected by a pretty circular stairway. The kitchen/dining area is situated in the ground floor complete with a fridge, stovetop (hob), microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher and washing machine. The first floor contains the salon/senjour with satellite plasma TV, DVD player and a trundle/day bed. The second floor has the bedroom (double bed) and complete bathroom with shower. Another toilet is situated in the ground floor as well as a huge boiler/water heater. Bed linens, bath and beach towels are provided and guests have access to Satellite TV for BBC, CNN and France24 among others. Wi-fi is available as well.

Parking (free) is available behind the house as well as in front of the village chateau.

Guest access

The village is situated along the road between Capestang and St. Chinian and within 15 minutes of the major highways (south to Spain, north to Provence and west to Toulouse and Lourdes/Biarritz)). Both the mountains and the sea are within driving distances (30 minutes) and there are plenty of places in the village for hiking and biking.

The village is also between Carcassonne (oldest preserved walled village and castle now a Unesco World Heritage site) and Beziers (famous for one of the major Christian crusade attack) and Narbonne (first Roman city outside of Rome with the Via Domitia in the center of the village)

We booked this rather late but everything went very smoothly. The house is quaint and the town of Creissan is quiet and perfect place to relax. Everything was clean and well presented and Elizabeth and Judy were very responsive and easy to deal with. A very good experience overall.

In Elizabeth's absence, Judy was onsite and was exceptionally accommodating. We travelled with a baby and Judy provided both a crib and a playpen--both of which were useful as it's a three-level unit. Judy was very kind and made herself available both before and during the booking to help out with any details and to provide any local information. The unit was in the ideal location for our purposes (business related)--it's a village house, which is quirky and in a charming location. The spiral staircases in the unit are a bit treacherous with a baby, though we made do. Again, the location, convenience, and nice hosts made it worthwhile.

We had such a lovely stay at une petite maison. The house was even better than expected. All you need is there ! we just fell like home for few days. The village and his neighbors are very nice, there is a horse riding place at the edge of the village, a lot of vineyards, moutains and beaches are not far away, whatever you fancy, you can do it ! And, as a bonus, Elizabeth is such a nice person, making our stay unforgetable. Definitly, to be recommand !

Une Petite Maison is a charming, comfortable townhouse in a very pretty wine village. The host made sure that everything was ready for our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and condiments were available. The amenities were most welcomed. We really enjoyed our stay as it was a great base to explore the region.. castles, great restaurants, beach and mountains. Highly recommended for rest and recreation.

Une Petite Maison was everything that it promised and more. Very charming home and neighborhood where one feels, he has just stepped back in time. Full disclosure is that I have an apartment that I rent on Airbnb as well. It is Les Roses in Puisserguier so you can see the standard that I expect. Our apartment was occupied and we had friends that came for a visit. We are familiar with Une Petite Maison and knew that they would be very well received and have all of the comforts of home there. I highly recommend Elizabeth's home to anyone that would like to experience the French lifestyle. Home is fully equipped, from kitchen to bathroom, all areas are covered for your convenience. I give Elizabeth 4 Stars for our friends stay. Don't miss the wine tasting at the Chateau only a minutes walk from the house.

In 2008, I convinced our family of four to purchase a village home as our maison secondaire in Southern France; specifically Languedoc Roussillon famous for its wines, cathar castles and history. We take our vacations here exploring towns and villages, wine domains and relaxing along the Mediterranean coast.
Our daughters eventually spent a year and half in local schools for language immersion and to fully experience la vie en France. C'est incroyable!
