House | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This superbly renovated and decorated stone house with roof terrace in a pretty wine growing village about 50 mins from both Perpignan and Carcassonne airports. This absolute gem is the perfect holiday home only 17km from the sparkling Mediterranean, in a picture postcard village with shop and bar/restaurant and only 5 minutes from the bustling village of Durban with supermarket, restaurant and open air pool.
It is not very big ( 72sqm over 3 floors ) and there is only one pukka bedroom but it is full of surprises and wonderful original features; white painted exposed beams, quaint tiled floors, staircases and fireplace and is decorated in exquisite taste known here in Southern France as 'shabby chic' ( very 'Cote Sud' - the up-market French magazine ).
