The central location of the village, with its fast access to main roads makes it a superb base to explore the area:The Canal Du Midi; The famous medieval walled city of Carcassonne (both Unesco World Heritage sites); The Cathar Castles; Mediterranean beaches and even a day trip to Barcelona is within easy reach. For more information about the village look at www.marie-escales.fr

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!

Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The landscape of the Languedoc Roussillon, and especially of Les Corbieres is amongst the most spectacular in France. It boasts a long coastline of the sparkling Mediterranean and has beautiful sandy beaches and fishing villages. Narbonne,Valras,Serignan plage are popular and suitable for children. Leucate also has a beautiful beach and has a port selling fresh oysters and mussels in the bars and restaurants.

Skiing is less than an hour away in the breathtaking Pyrenees, the nearest being Camurac.
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.
Many local vineyards offer free wine tours and wine tasting, its great fun and very interesting to see how they turn grapes into wine.

Lezignan-Corbieres

The nearest shops and supermarkets are found in nearby Lezignan, 5 minutes drive from Escales. market day in Lezignan is Wednesday, the streets are closed for the market ( 8am till 2pm).There are many bars and restaurants but please remember most shops in France close between 12 noon and 2pm.

Puicheric is nearby and offers Canoeing, bike Hire and a Market on Saturdays.

Many local towns and villages all within a short drive offer countless bars and restaurants, for example Rubia, Lagrasse, La Caunette, Capestang and Homps on the Canal Du Midi. Minerve is an ancient town built into the rock that is a MUST see on any holiday to this region (15 minutes from the house).

A freshwater bathing lake in Homps is 7 minutes away, or one of a number of freshwater rivers is Roquebrun, and is well worth a day out.

About an hour away is Collioure, one of the most picturesque fishing villages on the coast. The Festival St Vincent in August is spectacular, with amazing fireworks!

Another of our favourites is Leucate Plage and port. Close to this is the picturesque village of Fitou, with it's wine caves and wonderful wine tasting.

“Lovely place to stay!”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2016

We enjoyed a lovely holiday here - the property is exactly as it appears on the photos, in a very quiet village in beautiful French countryside. The owner, Ellie, was easy to contact and very helpful. The house is like a home from home (I wish it was ours!) and the rooms are spacious and well laid-out. There are English TV channels, which is ideal for those of us who are not too proficient at French, and the wifi worked well downstairs. The furniture is comfy, including the beds. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the fridge-freezer has plenty of space. The bathrooms are clean and fresh. The weather was very hot, and the air conditioning in the two upstairs bedrooms worked really well (though it would have been helpful to have had air con in the downstairs bedroom too - our only suggestion for improvement). The gardens are lovely, really peaceful, and the pool is great for cooling down. The village is very quiet - we barely saw anyone - but the L'Escabar restaurant is only 2-3 minutes walk away, and is great, with welcoming owners and delicious food. There is also plenty to visit - we went to Carcassonne Medieval City, Minerve, Bize, Narbonne, Homps, and Leucate Beach & Port - all great trips. If you like the look of this property, go for it - you'll have a fabulous holiday!

Many thanks for your wonderful review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!

“Well appointed and private house”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2012

Comfortable and spacious house with 2 pretty and secure outside areas. Situated in a friendly village with a boulangerie, grocers, restaurant, playground and post office. Good markets in surrounding towns and villages.

“Beautiful house in quiet peaceful location”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2012

The house was superbly presented when we arrived, and a bottle of local wine was there to greet us. The welcome letter told us all we needed to know about the cooker, fridge, washing machine, and hot water etc. The house is equipped to a very high standard with everthing you could need, even a toasted sandwich maker for those home from home treats. Escales is a beautiful village with a Bakery, small village shop and a Restaurant that offers great value food and on Mondays a pizza van parks in the square and makes great pizza to order. The canal du midi is only 5 mins away and we enjoyed a couple of sunny afternoons sitting with a cold beer watching the boats go by If like us you want a relaxed holiday in a beautiful house then Les Muriers is a very good bet
