Description from owner

Description

La Cachette, and its sister house, Le Chai, are two properties situated next to each other in the heart of small traditional French village, Bize Minervois. Bize is in the Minervois appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) wine region, with river swimming available and three great restaurants within five minutes walking distance. So great food, great wine and a great way to work it all off!

Bize is a picturesque small village with a population of just over 1,000 situated on the edge of the Languedoc Regional Park. Parts of the village are very old, with the occasional tower or turret still remaining and both Prehistoric and Gallo-Roman remains have been identified close by. In medieval times, the village used to be completely walled and one of the original village great gateways still remains.

Bize is a perfect place for a restful holiday with a good range of local amenities. Bize itself has three excellent restaurants and a cafe bar/pizzaria. There is a mini market, two

Bize is a picturesque small village with a population of just over 1,000 situated on the edge of the Languedoc Regional Park. Parts of the village are very old, with the occasional tower or turret still remaining and both Prehistoric and Gallo-Roman remains have been identified close by. In medieval times, the village used to be completely walled and one of the original village great gateways still remains.

Bize is a perfect place for a restful holiday with a good range of local amenities. Bize itself has three excellent restaurants and a cafe bar/pizzaria. There is a mini market, two bakers, a chemist, two hairdressers, a beauty parlour, and a taxi office. There is even a mini cinema in the village hall. There is also a medical centre and a post office. The main attraction in Bize is the river swimming available in the centre of the village, which has a lifeguard during July and August. In July each year, there are festivities and fireworks for Bastille Day, followed the next weekend by the annual Olive festival.

The sub commune of Bize, Cabezac, which is only a mile away, has another two quality restaurants, another cafe bar (which has an Oyster man visit two evenings a week), and an excellent pizza takeaway. There is also a famous traditional olive oil factory which has won numerous Paris awards and is always full of tourists who come from miles away. The olives are gorgeous! By the end of summer 2013 there will also be a new supermarket here.

La Cachette (translates roughly as 'the little hideaway'), whilst being small, is best described as being 'cute'! This is the original house that the winemaker lived in and is therefore more authentic in its original features than Le Chai, and is situated above the ground floor of Le Chai and accessed via an external staircase with private gate.

The property is ideal for a couple with just one double bedroom with a king size bed with a memory foam mattress. There is a private terrace at the front of the house which catches the morning sun, perfect for a croissant breakfast (with the village baker less than 30 seconds away).

Enter via front door into kitchen / dining area with large old stone fireplace (not in use) as the backdrop. Kitchen well equipped with electric cooker & fridge. Outside there is a built-in BBQ in the external wall and there is garden furniture for use on the terrace. Small lounge area off to one side of the kitchen / dining area, with a sofa bed. French doors lead on to the terrace at the front of the house. There is a patio table & chairs set for use on the terrace.

An old stone narrow spiral staircase leads up to the 2nd floor and a small landing with two cupboards. One contains a washing machine. One door leads off to the main double bedroom, with queen size bed. Ample storage space for clothes. Windows provide an outlook to both sides of the house, with one side with a view of the 18th century village church. Other door on the landing leads to the bathroom, with shower in the bath, toilet and basin.

We hope you will want to come and stay in Le Chai or La Cachette and experience all that Bize Minervois and the surrounding area has to offer.
