A luxurious retreat in the heart of the Minervois, this traditional French Manoir is available to let on a self-catering basis throughout the year and sleeps 6 people in 3 huge double bedrooms - two with en-suite facilities, and the other with its own shower room. The château style house, furnished with a mixture of antiques and modern luxury, has its own private swimming pool in a large south facing courtyard garden enjoying total peace and quiet.

Situated on the edge of Pepieux, it enjoys all the benefits of a typical French village including a boulangerie, general store, cave and bar and yet provides peace and quiet and stunning views over the vineyards and Montagne Noir. The Minervois is famous for its wine and the wine produced at the cave in Pepieux supports this reputation! (But don't take my word for it, come and experience it first hand).

Centrally located in the Aude it is easily accessible, with 3 airports less than 1 hour's drive away, but also perfect for enjoying all that this region of France has to offer. Whether it is the azure blue Mediterranean and its miles of golden sandy beaches, the Canal du Midi or the historical city of Carcassonne, there is something for everyone.

Further details indoors

Manoir Theron was built in 1857 and retains many of the traditional features associated with a house of quality in these times including large rooms with high ceilings, marble fireplaces and a dramatic sweeping staircase. Recently, the house has undergone complete renovation to accommodate the needs of the 21st century whilst respecting the splendour and elegance of the original building.

The House has a kitchen, lounge, separate dining room, wc, laundry and a large games room on the ground floor with the three bedrooms and bathrooms spread over the 1st floor

There are 3 luxurious bedrooms, one with a king-size beds and two with twin beds, so easily sleeping 6 adults. A cot and high chair are available if there is baby in the party. Two of the three bathrooms/shower rooms are en suite. Towels for use in the Manoir and beach towels are supplied.

The kitchen has been newly fitted this year and has all mod cons you would expect. The laundry is fitted with a washing machine and tumble dryer. Kitchen linen and towels are provided

The dining room and lounge with open log fires, will fit all 6 persons in comfortably. If there is a baby in the party a cot and high chair are available.

Further details outdoors

The private courtyard garden has a south-facing sun-baked terrace, for alfresco dining, leading to your own private pool. The pool has been built with safety and your enjoyment in mind with shallow steps to a depth of 1.3m . When you want to escape from the sun-baked terrace welcome shade is provided by a magnificent ancient cyprus tree, typical of this region.

Sun loungers and deck chairs are provided as well as dining tables and chairs for enjoying those long hot summer nights.

Further details

As the property is on several levels it may be unsuitable for those with limited mobility and is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

There is something for everyone in the Languedoc Roussillon region and all attractions are easily accessible from Manoir Theron.

The closest beach at Narbonne is about 30 minutes drive away and goes on for as far as the eye can see (about 4 miles). Other beaches then stretch east to Valras, Cap d'Agde, Marseillan all the way to Montpellier and beyond. Each has its personality from just sea and sand to more developed resorts. Going in the other direction, the coastline towards Perpignan provides equally spectacular beaches.

Carcassonne and its medieval cite has to be seen to be believed. The whole region is steeped in Cathar history with many sites and mysteries. (Suggested reading Labyrinth by Katie Mosse and Da Vinci code by Dan Brown)

The Canal du Midi, now a Unesco World heritage site, is just 6km away with walking, cycling or boat hire. Follow Rick Stein's voyage in Anjodi.

Perpignan, Bezier, Narbonne and Montpellier are the closest cities. Barcelona and Spain is about 2.5 hours drive for those of you that are adventurous. The mountains of the Pyrenees are to the south accessible for skiing in the winter and the beautiful Montagnes Noir are just north of Pepieux

Pepieux

Pepieux is a village in the middle of the vineyards but has the advantage of local shops and other facilities. There is a tennis court 100yds away and the main centre of the village is only 3 minutes walk.

In the village is a baker selling delicious pastries, fresh bread and great for those croissants first thing in the morning. There is a small general store, a post office, hairdressers, pharmacy, tabac and a gift shop. The bar is very 'french' serving great food in a relaxed atmosphere. But don't expect a choice and practise your French.

The cave co-operative is just off the village centre and sells excellent wine made from a mixture of the local grapes. You can buy it by the bottle or take any container for them to fill. And you won't believe the prices.

Olonzac, at about 3 km, has a supermarket, and for all other shopping needs try the local cities of Narbonne, Carcassonne and Beziers. Many of the local villages have a market

Lac du Jourres, just 5 minutes drive away, has fishing, sailing, other water sports and swimming from its own beach which is manned by a lifeguard in summer. There is also a restaurant there.

Wine tasting, enjoying the many and varied grapes grown in the area direct from the Domaines. We can organise a range of wine tasting experiences for your party from speed tasting, to give you a flavour of the Languedoc wines, right through to a course giving you a professional qualification. Just ask for details when you book.

"Brilliant property in lovely area"

The property is in a lovely situation on the edge of a quaint french village with vineyards only a few feet from the door. It is ideally placed to visit many areas of interest including Carcassonne, Narbonne and the Canal du Midi. The house is beautifully furnished and the pool and terrace is welcome after a hot day of sight seeing.
