The house is elegantly furnished with antiques and paintings but, having six children ourselves, is child and family friendly. High ceilings throughout emphasise the space and light and keep the house cool in the Summer. Property has off street parking if required, gardens and lawns to front and rear, swimming pool with safety cover, BBQ area, terrace play area for children, and a huge trampoline (used at guests own risk and discretion). The property is enclosed by high walls and is not overlooked by other properties making a discreet and private location.

About this location

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Inundated with rich history, the Aude has long been a place of interrest for the gourmet, the historian, and traveller alike. Restaurants teeming with local specialities such as Foie-Gras, Cassoulet, wild mushrooms and of course the selection of cheeses that are complimented by a wide array of regional wines are found hidden away in the villages and towns dotted around the area.

The history of the Aude is an historian's dream where religion, royalty and the local people have clashed over centuries leaving a unique culture and landscape filled with castles, walled towns, churches and towering cathedrals speckled about just waiting to be discovered.

Rieux Minervois

The Etaing de Marseillette is one of France's hidden secrets. This beautiful area lies next to the Canal du Midi and was once an inland lake. Today it is the site of a rich farming tradition with apple orchards, plums figs, and cherries, even rice and,of course, vineyards. Surrounded by the wild, garrigue countryside, the air is full of the scent of thyme and rosemary in the Summer. It is a paradise for nature lovers, cyclists and walkers, and is especially suited for children as the lanes around the Etaing are flat and virtually car-free. For those interested in wine there are many exciting wineries to discover close by (one just over the wall!).

We are a short drive from the dramatic Black Mountains, the Pyrenees and the Ariege, 40 minutes from Narbonne Plage and, if you feel like country-hopping, an hour and a quarter from Spain and Andorra.

Perpignan and its Catalan influence is one hour away as are Toulouse and Montpellier. The notorious Cathar town of Bezier is even closer. If you have ever read Labyrinth by Kate Moss, this is the region where the story is set and the castles and villages mentioned are as evocative as she makes them seem.

We have six Michelin starred restaurants in the Carcassonne area and their bargain lunchtime menus are definitely worth a visit with or without children. A host of new, innovative village bistrots are also appearing which makes eating out more exciting than the usual steak hache/frites.
