12 K (10 min drive) from the beautiful historic village of Lagrasse and a short walk to the lovely circular village of Talairan, this villa is one of the most unique in the area. The house was built to the highest energy rating with 100% double glazing, under floor heating, state of the art ceiling insulation and wall construction make this a cool and comfortable house in all weather. Perfect for enjoying the stunning local area, close to rivers for swimming (12k Lagrasse) or the sea (40 mins). It's a very unique villa for this area and one that has proven popular for its large open space. Can accommodate 7 with 4 bedrooms and there are two dining tables for big groups.

The immediate views are of the surrounding vines and olive trees with rolling hills topped with umbrella pines in the distance. There is a solar field down the road which is partially visible from one aspect of the house and is in keeping with my support for clean alternative energy. You will see in the photos the extent of the visibility. Perfect for your retreat and close to all the exotic Cathar castles. Wheelchair friendly, available all year, tower not accessible and not part of rental.

Open plan 100 sq m loft like contemporary living area. Kitchen, dining, living and work space all in one great hall with 5m high ceilings and 3m high french doors. Very light and spacious, perfect for entertaining

Further details outdoors

Two terraces one with a sink and one with a fireplace for wood burning or BBQ's. The terrain is rugged and wild with no formal garden. There is no pool and lots of local swimming in rivers, lakes and sea within easy access of the villa. Down the road and not visible from the house is a solar field which I support as clean alternative energy.

Further details

The house is still a 'work in progress' and the upper floors of the tower are not accessible. The bedrooms are small but the main hall and the two enormous terraces make up for that. Easy 5 min wall to the village and lost of wine tasting to be done as well as walking, swimming, and long bike rides along the canal du midi.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Beautiful and unspoiled Cathar country with stunning landscapes and some of the sunniest number of days in France. Close to the Canal du Midi, Cathar Castles, Carcassonne, the coast, the mountains and 3 hours drive to Barcelona. The region is full of local wine produces and tasting are available in many of them. Also the Abbey Fontfoide is a stunning place to visit and see the ruins and gardens.

Ask advertiser for more information.


Cathar Castles, Abbaye Fontfoide, Narbonne, Lagrasse, Canal du Midi, Gorges, lots of rivers and waterfalls and nature walks.

Many wine producers, weekly flea markets in many of the local towns and beautiful beaches. The local oyster market at Narbonne is great place for oysters and muscles.

"Deeply relaxing, beautiful and peaceful"

This is a fabulous house. Close to the village of Talairan which has a small shop/boulangerie, a tiny pizzeria/restaurant (book) and a public tennis court. Great for cycling and for wild swimming in rivers (particularly Lagrasse) as well as other sites within easy reach. The sea is only about an hour away. Terrace lovely for lounging and for outdoor dining lovely plants and wildlife

I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and looking forward to welcoming you back again soon.
