The space

L'Ancienne Vigneronne is a 200 year old former wine growers house which has been fully renovated. It is situated in the Minervois region of the Languedoc, a beautiful rural setting.

WIFI is available (free). During the winter we have central heating and a wood burning fire.

The four spacious bedrooms consist of two family rooms (double & single beds and 3 single beds) and 2 double rooms (double beds) and vary in size from 15-24 sq meters. All have their their own bathrooms of 6 sq meters.

There are no cooking facilities available but complimentary tea/coffee is available on request. There are good restaurants within 15 minutes drive which we use ourselves and are happy to recommend. Alternatively eat with us. We cook evening meals to order catering for all tastes with freshly bought produce, local wine and coffee included. A typical menu is 3 courses with wine and coffee included is 22.50 Euro per adult, and 10 Euro for under 10's. A lighter 'menu terroir' with cold meats, cheese and seasonal fruit can also be provided.

Mailhac has a bar, village shop, post office, school, swimming pool and a number of wine producers where wine can be tasted. The countryside is quiet, but we are not too far from historic cities, beaches, mountains and rivers.

The region is great for walking, bird watching, cycling (really nice road and off-road bikes can be hired locally), fishing, paragliding, golf and more! We keep a selection of tourist guides, maps and information about the region and enjoy sharing our local knowledge.

The Canal du Midi passes through the region and guided boat trips are an option. There is safe bathing and a cafe just 15 minutes drive to the Lac du Jouarre near Olonzac, and the Mediteranean is 45 minutes drive to Gruissan.

Tuesdays mornings in Olonzac is a must if you want to experience a typical French market, as well as an opportunity sit, drink a beer or coffee and watch the world go by.

The nearest city of Narbonne (30 minutes drive) has a pleasant Mediteranean feel when strolling about its quiet streets. The Canal de Robine flows quietly through the city centre, there is Roman archeology available to investigate and it offers a wider range of shops than you can find in small villages and towns.

The fortress city at Carcassonne is a World Heritage site and was used by Walt Disney as the model for his castle. Each July there's a large arts festival with top names appearing, and not forgetting a huge (free) firework display on July 14th ... Bastille Day.

Further afield are Montpellier and Perpignan (each about an hours drive) both pleasant cities to visit, the Pyrenees can be reached in 2 hours whilst into Spain it's a 2 hour drive to Gerona and 3 to Barcelona.

L'Ancienne Vigneronne is wonderful. We found it by accident and we are so glad that we did. Trevor and Caroline are brilliant hosts, they're really welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We had a lovely dinner with them on our first night. The room was beautiful with comfiest bed we've ever slept in. Breakfast was delicious - especially the homemade lemon curd. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night. If you're looking for a place near Carcassonne or the Canal du Midi you should stay here.

Trevor and Caroline were a super welcoming lovely couple. The house was exactly as you see it in a very gorgeous tiny town in the south of France, it was very quaint, clean with beauitful interiors, and a delightful back garden and perfect small pool. Caroline made us the most delicious dinner, my children are still talking about her salmon! All in all a super night and wished we had stayed longer, I would recommed this B&B to everyone! Many thanks Trevor and Caroline ... Cheers Anna, Nicky & families

We absolutely loved our 4 day stay with Trevor and Caroline in their lovely home in the small village of Mailhac. They were great hosts and always ready with great suggestions of things to see and do with our two daughters during the day. The location of the village was great for us as we were able to do day trips to the beach and Carcassonne as well as experience a boat trip on the Canal du Midi. Trevor and Caroline's suggestions of places to eat in the evening locally were also really helpful and we enjoyed going back to a nearby village most evenings for fabulous fresh, local food and live music. The house has been very tastefully restored with great attention to detail. Our accommodation was spacious, spotlessly clean and even nicer than we could have imagined from the photos. We looked forward to Caroline's breakfast every morning in the garden and the plentiful fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee and croissants really hit the spot. I would most definitely recommend this place!

Caroline & I took an opportunity to move to France more than 10 years, have enjoyed our time here immensely and do not have any plans to move back to the UK. Our efforts to learn French and integrate into village life have been rewarded with the friends and opportunities. We are also able to share our house, its location and fine weather with our family and friends from our former lives.
