A delightful 3 bedroomed character house set within its own private courtyard. The property is situated in Villenueve Minervois, an authentic village typical of the region with its shady boulevards, plane trees and 2 very good restaurants. The property is ideal if you enjoy all things local and a sense of independence; from markets, wine tasting and local delicacies to mountain walks and relatively undiscovered remote villages. However, it will also suit those who require a more focused stay as well-know attractions such as Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi are within a short drive. The property provides a cool haven in the summer but also has a fantastic wood burning stove and central heating providing a good all year round base to enjoy activities from walking in the spring, to Bastille Day and the enchanting Christmas market in Carcassonne. The spacious and elegant bedrooms, arranged as two doubles and one twin, sleep six comfortably. The very high standard of decoration internally is complemented by the picture postcard setting of the house within its own walled private courtyard and bbq area. A perfect setting any time of year.

There are so many places to visit in the area that one week may not be enough!

Within the village there are 2 very good restaurants (one an auberge serving local dishes and the other which is a more suited to fine dining). Other amenities include a boulangerie, butchers and small Spar shop. There is also a chemist and post office. The village is famous for "la Truffe" and in the winter colourful markets are organised to celebrate (and sell) all things related. You can visit the local museum, Maison de la Truffe (Truffle House) within the village all-year-round. Also dont miss out on a visit to le Moulin (a working windmill) which is a 15 minute stroll from the house.

In the surrounding area the numerous areas of historic, scenic and cultural interest are easily reached by car. There are the famous Cathar fortresses of Chateaux de Lastours and Queribus. However, the biggest attraction in the area is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Carcassonne. Carcassonne is the largest walled city in Europe, the fascinating 'La Cite', where at least in the story, the heroic chatelaine defied the siege of Charlemagne. Despite its fairy tale appearance, Carcassonne has all of the conveniences of a modern city.

To cool down in the summer there are lakeside beaches and a forestry acrobatic park at Lac de Lay Cavayere. Both popular with families. If you fancy visiting some of the caves for which the region is well-known, head for the Grotte de Limousis or Cabrespine. For those that don't mind a longer drive there is a wonderful tourist train Rivesaltes to Axat which takes you through dramatic and beautiful mountain scenery.

For the more adventurous there are lots of activities such as gorge walking, whitewater rafting and kayaking.

The village of Caunes Minervois, famous for its red marble and Benedictine abbey, is less than 15 minutes drive away, where there is a wider selection of shops and dining options.
