Nestling in a secluded courtyard, this comfortable shuttered three roomed village house has just been renovated and decorated with hand-painted finishes to furniture, retaining touches of rustic village charm such as original French café chairs in the kitchen. Beamed ceilings and stone walls create a relaxed holiday atmosphere.

It was once a part of the original medieval château, the arches of which are still visible in some of the village walls.

A refuge from city life, it is the only house in the village that has a terrace- ideal on sunny days, including winter when the weather is usually good.

Situated in Tournissan, part of the canton of Lagrasse, this is a wonderfully intimate haven where you can either bring your book and relax with a good glass of regional wine, or use as a pied-à-terre while you enjoy everything the Languedoc has to offer. We love this region with a passion and we hope you will too.

Further details indoors

Access to our courtyard is through a covered passageway below an adjacent house.

Layout:

• The house is split over three floors and has a cellar.

• The cellar is level with the outside courtyard on the ground floor,

• The kitchen/dining area is on the first floor and is the entrance to the house,

• The main bedroom is on the second floor,

• The sitting room/second bedroom is on the top floor with the terrace.

• The typical village spiral staircase could be difficult for the infirm or little children; the terrace could also be dangerous for unsupervised younger children.

• It is well appointed as an ideal getaway for one couple, a small family or close friends.

Accommodation:

• A cosy kitchen with gas cooker, fridge, dinner and tea & coffee services, storage space, and all utensils that the keen cook requires

• A charming main bedroom with double bed and bedding for both warm and cold weather

• A sunny and colourful top floor room which has two divans, acting as either sofas or two extra beds, bedding, a television and CD player

• A terrace which is accessed from the top floor room with views over the village

• A shower room with loo & wash basin. Towels provided.

• Hanging and storage space is adequate for holidaymakers.

• Because the house has thick stone walls, is situated in a courtyard and double-glazed, it is airy and cool in summer and cosy in winter. The electric panel heating is adequate even in the coldest months and can be boosted with a blow heater. For the height of summer, a standalone water-based air cooler unit is available.

If visitors stay longer than a week, we could make a washing machine & tumbledrier available.

Further details outdoors

All amenities 2 km away in nearby St. Laurent-de-la-Cabrerisse. There is a café bar in the village. Daily bread deliveries at 10 am outside the house – listen for the hooter – it sounds like a train tooting!

About this location

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

We are in the northern part of the Corbières, in the heart of the wine growing region where vineyards and olive groves surround picturesque stone villages and stretch into wooded hillsides.

There are long views to the distant Pyrenees. Ancient monasteries and ruined castles are reminders of the Cathars’ turbulent past. Close by, the Mediterranean coastline provides miles of sandy beaches.

The World Heritage citadel of Carcassonne will enchant you and whether you choose to ride a bike, play golf, boat on the Canal du Midi or just relax in the sun, you will be assured of a memorable holiday.

Our charming little house will give you the perfect base from which to explore this sun-filled region. Come and rejoice in la France profonde

"Small but beautiful authentic ."

Away from all the touristy micky mouse , here you have to buy your baguette from the van that visits the village , the church bell marks the hrs twice , the villagers are chatty and friendly, you learn French fast .
The flat is small , the stairs to master, but, it has got everything you want - modern bathroom , clean and comfy beds , fully equipped kitchen , quaint roof terrace and even a washing machine and dryer . The TV set matches the size of the flat, small - but who needs that in such an interesting and beautiful area ?

"A beautiful little escape"

This is a great little house with a lot of character. It's very rural, and very French, so there isn't a lot of activity in the town itself. You can drive through it in about 30 seconds (we … More
