House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Convenient for Olonzac with its lovely market, this lovely house is located in a very quiet little street in the old part of the village of Cesseras. I think it is probably the most charming. Situated behind the château in the small street between what used to be the ramparts (very little showing now) this house is accessed through the old walls of the château. Don't expect a modern box type house or apartment. This house has many levels and staircases.
You enter by the old kitchen, still with is old worldly charm, now used as a lobby, laundry room and useful storage for prams etc.
The house starts on the first floor to maximise the lovely light that we have in the Minervois. On the first level you have the spacious lounge with TV, DVD, etc and windows that open onto the terrace. To the other side of the landing you have a double bedroom. Up two steps to the bathroom and separate toilet and on to the kitchen /dinning room that has doors and windows on to the sunny south facing terrace. The kitchen is fully equipped and has plenty of cooking and seating space. There is a compact stereo and a glass fronted wood stove. On the terrace you have teak garden furniture, large table and seating for six, there is a movable BBQ and there are a couple of reclining sun chairs available.
Back in the house there is a private staircase to bedroom number 2 with two single beds and a second private staircase off the lounge to bedroom number 3 which has a king size double bed.

About this location
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
In the middle of the Minervois wine making region, named after the medieval village of Minerve just a few kilometres away. Beautiful limestone gorges behind the village wend their way down towards the immense natural caverns( that you can explore by foot) that guard the entrances to Minerve (listed as on of the most beautiful villages in France). The best wine in the region on your doorstep, Cesseras is perfectly situated for visits to the UNESCO world heritage sites of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi as well as visits to the Cathare castles nearby. Day trips to the Mediterranean Beaches (1hr) or the cities of Narbonne and Beziers.
Cesseras is a lovely small village (350 inhabitants) and you will be in the centre of the medieval part. There is a cafe that serves food and a small grocery shop for those essential items. You are never more than 5 minutes (walking slowly) from beautiful peaceful countryside. Behind the village the hills towards the gorges of the river Cesse and in front the vineyards. Lovely walks in all directions.
Olonzac just 4km has all the shops you need, supermarket, 3 bakers, 4 cafes, 2 banks, butchers, cash machines, petrol
There are at least a dozen restaurants within a 6km radius of Cesseras, from Pizzerias, classic french to quality restaurants
