The ground floor of the house consists of a living room with open plan kitchen and dining area, one double bedroom and a bathroom with separate toilet. Both the living room and kitchen have terrace doors opening onto the gardens. Open stairs lead to the first floor with a double bedroom, a large bedroom with twin beds and a third bedroom with two double sofabeds. This third bedroom also doubles as an upstairs lounge room, with TV, DVD and Wii console. Upstairs there is also a second family bathroom with bath and shower.

Both sides of the house have a lovely garden, completely landscaped with outdoor lighting, for the lovely warm evenings. The gardens offer plenty of sun, shade and shelter and have several natural stone seating areas for you to enjoy a glass of wine.

The large garden is 200m2 and completely walled, making it safe for children. There are two mulberry trees in the centre of the garden offering shade and a hammock to rest in. At the rear of the house there is a lovely secluded garden with a newly installed pool and paved sunbathing area. There is also a lovely seating area built into an old ruin which is perfect for taking advantage of the morning sun over breakfast.

Although the house is very traditional, it has been very tastefully decorated and has a contemporary feel indoors. It is furnished and equipped to the highest standard, with every mod con you would expect at home!

Les Muriers is located in a private road devoid of traffic. The village has a town hall, school, post office, bakery and grocery shop, as well as a weekly pizza and butchers van. Next to the house are a tennis court, basketball and football area, free for everyone to use. In the summer, there is a weekly petanque competition between the villagers, which offers a barbecue and plenty of chance to mix with the locals. There is a new beautiful restaurant which has just been built in the village, only a minutes walk from the house.

Les Muriers is privileged to sit in a region of wonderful vineyards and therefore wine! The local wine can be purchased from the co-operative a couple of miles away for a few euros a bottle and is wonderful tasting wine!

Take time to visit the Canal Du Midi, less than 10 minutes away from the house. Sit and enjoy the boats and barges pass whilst having a beer!

Only 12 k away is Minerve,classified as one of the prettiest villages in France.

Carcassonne is also a must with the walled city.
