About this listing
Our family house was a series of small village barns, lovingly converted and restored by my parents. It is a sanctuary of peace and beauty, with magical wide open views of the valley and vines, filled with lovely things. Minimum 4 night stay.
The house comprises:
A large open plan kitchen/dinning room and an equally large sitting room which spectacular views over the valley. One of the two sofas is a double sofa bed.
One twin bedroom.
Two double bedrooms.
Two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath.
A terraced, walled garden and various other smaller pieces of outdoor space.
Two separate large second floor terraces.
The house is full of character, it is fresh and bright, and personally furnished by my family - it is not a traditional bland rental property. As testimony to this, it features in the exclusive Alastair Sawday Guide to French properties to rent.
It is situated in the rustic, unspoilt village of Paziols, underneath the Church. The village is in the Cathar castle region of the Corbieres. It is real, working wine country and it is truly beautiful. Paziols is a characterful little village, with a bar, restaurant, shop and tennis courts, situated on the foothill of a wide valley basin with far reaching views.
There are wonderful walks and beautiful villages to visit all around. The is also a vast array of magical wild river swimming options - with crystal clear waters - in and around the village. The Mediterranean is 50 minutes drive and there are some fantastic beaches with lovely restaurants, as well as fresh mussel beds where you can pick up fresh off-the-boat mussels.
Our house is beloved of writers and painters, which you will appreciate if you visit.
For enquires re. out of season rental, or fewer people, we may be able to agree a reduced rate.
