Stylish, tastefully restored 4 bedroom stone winery. This tranquil & romantic haven is perfect for couples or families (2-8) looking to escape in the rural idyll of S. France. Surrounded by beautiful landscape, vineyards and wildlife in a secluded hamlet, we are also near to wonderful markets, restaurants & wineries, historic towns & the Canal du Midi. Private heated pool on a terrace with panoramic views. Perfect for hiking, biking, riding, sightseeing, wildlife, or simply relaxing by the pool.

The space
The house works equally well for couples and families. Upstairs there is a master bedroom (double) with private bathroom, shower room, well-equipped kitchen, spacious and comfortable sitting room with TV & DVD, music center and internet. Downstairs there is another double bedroom and children's room with bunk beds and a pull-out mattress, and an additional shower room. There is reversible air-conditioning throughout (cool in summer & warm in winter). The house has a private terrace (off the sitting room through large panoramic windows) with its own heated pool, outside grill and shaded eating area. Visitors have access to our private fields with great views, and our genuine 1950’s bow top gypsy caravan (picnics and space to chill). For larger groups the house can be rented with Bonellis - Le Petit Duc, to sleep 13-14 people in two adjacent properties with two swimming pools. If the Petit Duc is not available there is additional accommodation in the village. Close to Beziers and Carcassonne airports.

Guest access
All of the gite spaces are for your use only. These include the restored winery and it's 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, and large sitting-room. You also have sole access to the large terrace, heated pool with countercurrent swimming system, outside grill and covered dining area for 8, sun loungers and chairs. Private parking is provided.

Other things to note
The nearest supermarkets and food shops are in Bize-Minervois and St Chinian both 10 minutes drive from La Roueyre. We suggest you pick up supplies en-route although we provide basics such as water and milk for your arrival. Larger supermarkets are available in Saint Marcel, Capestang and Narbonne

Location

Bize-Minervois, Occitanie, France

The little hamlet of La Roueyre is located 10 km north of Bize-Minervois and close to the villages of Assignan (Michelin resteraunt) and St Jean de Minervois (famous for its Muscat wines). We are at the head of a hidden limestone valley, surrounded by forest and vineyards. It is beautiful and tranquil here, but there is also a lot to do: walking, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding, sightseeing, brilliant birdwatching (spring and autumn), exploring prehistory (dinosaurs to the bronze age) or simply relaxing by the pool or swimming in the local rivers. There are some great restaurants within a few minutes drive and many wineries where you can taste and buy local produce. If you venture a little further afield there is canoeing and kayaking, canyoning, historic towns (Narbonne, Minerve and Carcassonne) and plenty of archaeological and historical sites. The beaches of Narbonne and Agde are around one hour away. Check out the what to do page on our bonellis-gite website for more information.

We came here for the views, peace and nature. The valley has an extraordinary diversity of wildlife. Bonelli's and Short Toed eagles nest very close by and in spring you will be serenaded by nightingales day and night. For us it really is the most perfect spot, we are biased of course, but suggest you come and try it for yourself.
