About this listing
A stunning south of France renovated village home. Set over three floors this gorgeous house will feel like a home from home, take a glass of chilled wine up onto the roof terrace to watch the sun set over the vineyards. Listen out for the man in the van in the morning as he drives by with fresh baguettes, pain au raisins or simple croissants.
Enjoy a hike in the local vineyards and see if you can find local goats cheese to enjoy with your wine or take a swim in a natural pool or picnic by the river... Take a car and drive to the gorgeous beaches by Leucate or Narbonne or the nightlife of Perpignan or go further afield and spend a night in the wonderful Spanish cities of La Girona or Barcelona, only a couple of hours drive away.
So much to do and yet the call of the terrace and quiet village life is very tempting too. This place is also great in the winter as the house has a wonderful open fireplace, a great selection of dvds and a gorgeous shabby chic leather sofa to enjoy a very romantic getaway. Bliss!
There are plenty of towels but I would appreciate it of you would use just one large and one small during your stay - There is a washing machine should you need to use it and it makes sense to use only what you need.
There is a dishwasher but it doesn't work very well on cleaning the glasses, just so you know it is often easier to do the glasses by hand. There are crystal glasses in the cabinet, feel free to use these but they are VERY delicate and can only be handwashed.....carefully!
The cleaning fee is NOT included in the price per week, this is 25 Euros per week. within two days of your arrival the cleaning lady will come past to pick this up from you.
Thank you for your consideration, the house is also my home so it would be great if you would take care of it - thank you.
The shortest way to summarize our experience at Martina's house may be to say that we felt immediately at home and could have spent the whole summer there... The house is simple but very cosy, stylish, and the roof terrace just awesome.
Martina organized everything efficiently and provide us with all information we could need.
The village is small but lively with friendly inhabitants and ideally placed to discover this wonderful region.
We definitely consider to come back one day in the Corbières, and asking for Martina's house will be a no-brainer...
God kommunikation med værten inden opholdet . Charmerende bolig i en særdeles hyggelig landsby. I selve byen ligger en virkelig både god og hyggelig restaurant/bistro, hvor man under afslappede former spiser skøn fransk mad . Selve boligen fungerer, men der er plads til forbedringer: opvaskemaskinen virker ikke, der mangler møbler på tagterrassen. Til gengæld er der en pragtfuld udsigt fra netop tagterrassen: vinmarker og bjerge så langt øjet rækker. Værten kunne nemt forbedre boligen med nogle mere solide stole på terrassen og en fungerende opvaskemaskine . Men stemningen fejler ikke noget !
Our teenage daughters wanted to become Facebook-friends with Martina straight away because of her interior decorating skills. In other words, the house was nicely and tastefully decorated, something we definitely enjoyed. The village is small and quiet which gave us time to unwind and relax. The area is not that touristic but there is still a lot to discover, Martina shared a lot of info with us. It makes discovering the are a bit easier. Any way, a great place to enjoy your vacation.
Martinas house is very nice, comfortable and has a wonderfull roof terrace. Everything is well equiped. We had enjoyed our stay there! Unfortunately we only stayed three nights in Martinas house.
We had a great holiday here: the house was really clean and comfortable, the kitchen is very well equipped, and there are helpful maps and a guidebook at the house. The village is pretty remote, so you need a car; it's a good location for exploring the Corbieres region, and we found lovely river swimming in the Orbieu.
Martina's place is a lovely house in the middle of the village. It is very quiet, surrounded with the beautiful Corbieres landscapes. We very much appreciated the rooftop terrace for sunbathing as well as dinners. The place is neat, clean and has everything you need.
Vi havde en rigtig dejlig ferie og boligen levede helt op til vores forventninger. Dejlig lille by , hvor vi var fri for masseturismen.
Naboerne var vældig rare og hjælpsomme. vi kan varmt anbefale boligen til andre.

About the Host, Martina
I run an ethical coffee company which buys coffee direct from a group of farmers in a cloud forest in the northern Nicaraguan mountains. The project also provides educational facilities; books, clothes, desks, school buildings for the people in this coffee growing community. And the coffee tastes excellent ; )
Apart from riding around the mountains in Central America on a horse, painting schools and drinking a lot of coffee I love to take time out in France and Italy when I can. France is wonderful and relaxing and I know that when I arrive I feel totally relaxed and serene, the village is peaceful but the people are very friendly and the house is wonderful, cool in the summer and cosy in the winter.
Italy is sparkling and being by the beach in the summer is the best feeling, only a two minute walk across to the gorgeous sands and warm mediterranean and long walks on a deserted beach in the evening make it a very special place.
I am very busy all the time and do not often have the opportunity to relax but both of these places are my idea of heaven, I hope you enjoy them too and I am happy to offer any information that will help you get the most out of them.
