The Space

La Maison Jaune is a 17thC rustic Catalan style property with a sunny roof terrace, based in a wine making village in southern France.

The house has recently been renovated in a simple style retaining many of its traditional features. It has beautiful terracotta mosaics in the private roof terrace, which has lovely views of the village surrounding countryside. It has a large living room with a wood burning stove. The house was built in the original walls of the village and has deep natural stone walls that keep it cool in summer and warm in winter. The corner kitchen is to the side of the large living room with a modern hob, oven and Butler sink. It is an ideal house for one or two couples but is not suitable for young children because of the low parapet on the roof terrace.

Interaction with Guests

Our neighbour takes care of the house when we are away. She is a mine of information about the local area.

The Neighborhood

The house is located in a natural landscape with dramatic gorges, rivers and Cathar castles with routes between so you can cross from one Cathar castle to another. There are wonderful wildflower walks along these routes. For the very active, rock climbing on the Vingrau cliffs, horse riding and quad bike riding available nearby may attract. There are two swimming pools at the neighbouring village, one with bar/snacks but you can also swim in the river next to the village. The main beaches and lagoons are 1h away at Leucate and the skiing and spas 1h 15m away.

The village has a mini-market, restaurant/bar, hairdresser and outdoor wine and musical events during the summer. Wine making is the main industry with three well-known local Fitou wine Domaines. There is also the range of superb wines produced at Domaine Jones where you can take a tour of Katie Jones's vineyards each with a view of a Cathar Castle, in Maury the castle of Queribus dominates the sky line and in Tuchan, the Aguilar Castle nestles in the hills beyond. Summer brings the Medieval events to Carcassonne, Cucugnan and Peyrepertuse. The city of Narbonne is only 40km away.

House Rules

Please be aware that the spiral staircases in the main house are ancient and all floors have old beams, the one in the second floor bedroom is quite low so tall people need to take care. The stone spiral staircases, the low step up to the edge of the terrace wall and the low parapet make it unsuitable for young children under seven and anyone with mobility problems.

As this is a non-smoking house, please do not smoke on the premises.

In the house, there is local information available for you including information on the gorgeous Chateau de Jau art gallery and winery, the towns of Ceret and Collioure famous for attracting artists including Picasso and Matisse, and the various summer and autumn festivals.

The house sleeps a maximum of five people so no extra guests are allowed.
