Maison De Villeneuve Minervois
from £50 /night help
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
In the heart of the Minervois wine region at the foot of the Montagne Noire and just twenty minutes from Carcassonne our holiday home is in the typically French village of Villeneuve Minervois.
Our home has been completely refurbished and now offers a modern kitchen with induction hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.
Also on the ground floor is the dining room and comfortable lounge with a log burning fire, a television with an integral DVD player and freesat box to receive UK TV channels.
On the first floor is the master bedroom, with its king size bed and en-suite shower room, as well as a twin bedroom and family bathroom.
On the top floor is another large double bedroom and a ROOF TERRACE with a summer kitchen, ideal for BBQ's on those balmy South of France evenings or for just sitting out with a good book and glass of the local wine.
Free Parking is available on the Avenue in front of the house.
The village has a wonderful boulangerie, a butchers, a Spar shop for groceries.
Bar KeKe, for that early morning coffee or lunchtime snack, is just around the corner and the two local restaurants are certainly worth a visit as is the Pizzeria. There is also a pharmacy and post office.
Wander up from the house to the working windmill where you can try some of the local Minervois wines or visit the Maison de la Truffe a museum dedicated to the truffle which is grown locally.
Every Tuesday night in July and August the village hosts an evening meal with entertainment. Tables and chairs are laid out in the street to make the most of the balmy evening air. It's a great way to mix with and meet the locals and enjoy the real France.
There is just so much to see and do in this wonderful area of France with its Cathar Castles, picturesque lakes and local markets as well as vineyard tours and so much more.
A visit to “La Cite”, Carcassonnes' Medieval Citadel and a world heritage site, is a must. But visit early evening when the crowds have gone and wander the cobbled streets stopping for a drink or a meal at one of the many bars and restaurants before heading back to Villeneuve.
The Canal Du Midi is a short drive away. Here you can hire bikes to cycle along its banks or electric boats to meander along the gently flowing waterway. Trekking in the mountains or kayaking and canoeing the River Aude are also extremely popular.
Should you prefer the beach, Narbonne Plage is an leisurely hour's drive away with its 5 km of fine sandy beaches and 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, it's been a European blue-flag beach for 23 years.
The Spanish border is just an hour and a half away with the Catalonian Capital of Barcelona a 3 hour drive.
