La Fumade is a large French farmhouse, renovated with everything you might need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday in the hills of southern France. The garden borders a year-round stream and the house is surrounded by the protected forest, orchards, hiking trails, and mountains of the High Languedoc Natural Park.

Less than an hour’s drive from the Mediterranean, the house gives you easy access to the sea as well as the rivers, lakes, mountains, and wineries of the Languedoc. The medieval village of Olargues, only a few kilometres away, is officially listed as one of the most beautiful in France.

The rustic house is part of a small hamlet of three houses and a number of barns and stone ruins, situated on their own just outside of a village. Nestled in the hillside, the house and garden are quiet and private.

Further details indoors

The large stone house can sleep ten people, so it is perfect for big families, extended family get-togethers, or multiple families. With two separate living areas, there is plenty of room for everyone. Three bedrooms downstairs share a large family bathroom. One room has two single beds, one has a super king bed, and one has a traditional, king-sized bed.

The first floor features two large master suites, each with a WC and shower. One suite has a double bed, and the other has a super king bed. The two suites are connected by a large salon, which itself has a sofa bed and two large armchairs--a perfect room for reading or playing games.

Further details outdoors

The garden, pool, and jacuzzi are for your exclusive use, and all you see is nature when you look up to the surrounding mountains. The garden features a breakfast terrace with a table and chairs, and a pergola with a full-sized table for family meals. The private outdoor pool blends into the natural landscape of the garden, with room to relax and cool off on a hot summer's day. In the sheltered courtyard on the side of the house, a secluded and private jacuzzi tub will soothe and relax your muscles as you look out onto the mountains or enjoy the starlit sky.

Other comments from previous renters:

"Thank you! We had an absolutely amazing time. Could hardly bear to tear ourselves away from the pool. The house has got everything that you could possibly need, as long as you don't mind it's remoteness, which was a plus for us. A great place to relax." -DH

"All is so lovely here. We are enjoying our stay very much!" -GL

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

In the heart of the real south of France, the Languedoc region has a rich and colourful history that is reflected in both the people and the countryside. France's largest wine-producing region, the Languedoc (and the Herault in particular) is the home of the AOC appellations of Corbieres, Minervois, Saint Chinian, and Faugeres.

St Etienne D'Albagnan

Just a few kilometers from the house, the medieval village of Olargues (http://www.les-plus-beaux-villages-de-france.org/en/olargues) is classified as one of the most beautiful towns in France ("Les plus beaux villages de France"). The area has a number of outdoor activities, including climbing, kayaking, canoeing, golf, cycling, and walking. The house is in a secluded countryside setting, and is only a few kilometers from all services, supermarkets, shops, and restaurants.

"A luxurious retreat from the hurly burly"

We drove down from England, overnighting on the way, and arrived late and in the dark. The directions and sat nav coordinates could not have made this easier. The next day we woke to silence and isolation. This was exactly what we needed. We spent the next ten days pottering around the local area, food and drink is excellent (although in September everything that can be is imbued with sweet chestnut).
Support from the host, when required, was prompt and quickly resolved issues. These were only minor though and did not detract in any way. Utilities, including internet, were included, worked and the instructions for the house were accurate and clear allowing us to quickly settle in.
We hope to stay again.

"Beautiful home - everything you could need for the family."

This home is perfect for the family that wants all the comforts of home in a great location! We couldn't have asked for more. It was easy to find and not far from large villages, but still secluded in the beautiful mountains. The views are amazing. We were able to easily come and go from the home to do several day trips around the area. We didn't feel that a week was enough time to do everything! The home itself satisfied all of our needs from a wonderful kitchen that allowed us to prepare family meals to the amount of space in the bedrooms and separate bathrooms. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay unforgettable. We will definitely rent this house again.

"Fabulous house in the hills."

We had a great holiday. The house is perfect, everything you could need is there.The furniture is nice and the beds are so comfortable. Great value for money and plenty of room for 10 of us. You do need to be organised, it's quite a drive to the shops but there is quite a good choice of supermarkets. The outside area is lovely, surrounded by forest, we saw eagles, badgers and goats, very rural! Superb seating area and we loved the pool. I would recommend you take good mosquito repellent, we all got bitten. Not for you if you want to be in the middle if everything but if you want a get away from it all holiday this place is perfect.
