About this listing

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.

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)

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!
