Description from owner

Description

La Bergerie is situated in a small hamlet amongst vineyards on the slopes of the Caroux mountains in the Haut Languedoc Regional Park, with stunning views across the Jaur valley from secluded covered and open terraces. Walks through magnificent scenery, with a 'grande randonée' passing above, and spectacular gorges with cascades and rock pools for swimming. Canoeing, fishing, rock-climbing, riding, rivers and lakes all nearby. Mediterranean beaches within 1 hour.

La Bergerie at Les Horts was built in the 17th century as a stone shepherd's cottage in the beautiful valley of the Juar river, now part of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Park. A set of stone steps leads off a restricted-access track through the village of Les Horts, to the secluded landscaped garden which surrounds the property. La Bergerie has been imaginatively converted and extended to accommodate four guests in comfort with all modern amenities.

The house faces south and gets lots of sunshine.

A set of stone steps leads off a restricted-access track through the village of Les Horts, to the secluded landscaped garden which surrounds the property. La Bergerie has been imaginatively converted and extended to accommodate four guests in comfort with all modern amenities.

The house faces south and gets lots of sunshine. The lower floor was once the place where the shepherd kept his sheep in the winter. Today, it contains a large and comfortable twin bedroom, with a great vaulted stone ceiling and French doors which open onto a sunny stone terrace. The terrace has garden furniture and a sun umbrella, making it ideal for taking meals outside, or enjoying the sun. This space is connected to the main upper floor by a spiral staircase in a modern glass atrium.

Upstairs is a well-equipped kitchen, and a cosy, comfortable living room with stone walls, exposed wooden beams, and an open fireplace. A large covered terrace opens out from the kitchen and living room; from it, there are magnificent views up and down the valley of the Juar river. The second bedroom is on a mezzanine above the living room, approached up a wooden step ladder. It is an unusual and very characteristic sleeping area, with the double bed situated under the vaulted ceiling. Downstairs there is a fully fitted modern bathroom and laundry facilities.

The track which runs past the house through the village of Les Horts, twists up to the top of the ridge, where it joins one of the grande randonée signposted hiking trails. With the house situated in the middle of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Park, it is a walking paradise, with many treks across the wild Caroux region, punctuated with refreshing mountain pools. Canoes can be rented for trips down the rapids of the Orb from Tarrasac (5km).

Mountain bikes, rock climbing, horse riding and even golf are all catered for nearby. There are a wide range of tourist activities available in the Langedoc-Rousillon region.

The nearest beaches are about an hour away at Valras-Plage, with many more beautiful beaches along the stretch from Marseillan-Plage to the old fishing port of Sète. However, there is great swimming in the refreshing local rivers, mountain streams and lakes in the summer.

Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Situated in the middle of the Haut Languedoc National Park, in the Department of Herault, the whole area is a walking paradise, with treks up, down and across the wild Caroux punctuated with refreshing mountain pools.

This region is steeped in history, particularly the time of the medieval religious wars of the Cathar faith. There are many hilltop castles and villages dating from this period. The medieval fortress city of Carcassonne is a couple of hours away, and is well worth a visit. To the south, a good day trip would take in the beautiful chteaux of Quribus and Peyrepertuse, and the narrow Gorge of the Galamus river.

The Spanish border is about 2 hours away. A trip to the picturesque Costa Brava village of Cadaques, where the home of Salvador Dali in neighbouring Port Ligat has recently been opened to the public. The main Salvador Dali museum is inland at Figueres.

Olargues

Les Horts is a small 16th century hamlet of about fifteen families, situated on the flanks of the Espinouse mountain ridge, 3 kms from the historic medieval town of Olargues to the west, and Mons La Trivalle to the east. From the main D908 road running along the valley of the Orb and Juar rivers, a small route turns off, under the old railway line (which has now been converted into a walking and cycling path) and winds up through the vineyards to the village square.

Olargues is one of the "Plus Beau Village de la France" (most beautiful villages in France), with a medieval tower above the small town and a 12C stone bridge.

“Enchanting location amongst the hills”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2014

Le Bergerie has a delightful location on the hillside overlooking the Jaur valley. The house has a traditional feel and is stylishly furnished with all that is needed for a comfortsable stay. Well positioned for walks to nearby and more distant rock pools or for cycling along the designated cycle path to Lamalou or St. Pons. A wonderfull place.
