The Neighborhood

Just steps outside the house gates is the traditional village of Olonzac, where you'll find a beautiful park with 3 professional tennis courts, several cafes, bar/restaurants to choose from. Shops including grocery stores, excellent supermarket on the edge of the village.
Lac de Jouarres is only 2 mins away for swimming, boating, fishing and windsurfing, and the Canal du Midi is also 2 mins away. During the summer season, the lake has lifeguards and there is a restaurant/snack bar with sun loungers for use in their garden, you can walk the perimeters of the lake in just an hour. The swimming area has been prepared using pebbles and geotextiles to prevent weed growth and the sailing/fishing area are away from the bathing area, in the summer season a range of surf board courses are on offer in the sailing area.
The Canal du Midi runs just past Olonzac and there are lots of places to hire a boat, alternatively, just stroll along the shaded tree-line, tow-path and stop at any one of many water side restaurants for lunch. The village of Minerve is only 15 mins away. Minerve, a miraculous village perched over the meeting of rivers, perched where rivers tunnels through deep gorges, there are wonderful walks that test the soul and one's agility. The river Cessiere tunnels under hill, next to the village, and one can, if the water's not high walk through, to provide the ideal background to grand spectacles of Son et Lumiere in the summer months.
Corbieres, where interesting and serious wine-makers are now well established and you stop at villages like Lagrasse, a really gorgeous village in the fold of a hill, unspoilt, medieval and facing a Benedictine monastery.

Olonzac, France · Member since October 2013

My name is Leo Maggi and I'm originally from the UK where my other business is based but also split my time with the lovely region of Minervois.

My mother is semi-retired and also lives in the south of France, we both absolutely love France and have enjoyed many wonderful happy family holidays here, I decided to open a guest house in this lovely acquaint village called olonzac 9 years ago.

It is a warm and welcoming village and the surrounding area offers something for everyone.

Year property purchased: 2006

Why this location?

The house was named Maison De la Botte, because the little road called rue de botte is in a shape of a boot. I chose this particular region to buy this property as it boasts a high number of days of sunshine per year, yet is very accessible via Carcassonne airport. The location off the Minervois offers stunning scenery and is nestled between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

By offering the best in French village life, Maison de la Botte is tucked away in the centre of Olonzac with glorious gardens, sun terrace, indoor pool and even a games room complete with a billiards table, table tennis, children's toys, Xbox games console and Nintendo Wi. We also have TVs with satellite programmes from UK and other countries. You can choose between enjoying the tranquility and privacy of the house or take a step outside into the heart of village life, bakers, cafés, parks, tennis club, restaurants and all situated in the stunning region Minervois. Why not go and enjoy the hustle and bustle of market day which surrounds Olonzac on Tuesdays. Please see local sites of interests (website) for more details on recommendations for this area.
