Description from owner

Description

Set in the small hamlet of Paguignan in the Minervois wine region, le Bau Trinquat (it means "wood with a spring" in Occitan) is a spacious, lovingly restored vigneron house dating back to the 17th century. Many of the original features have been preserved (wooden beams, terra cotta floor tiles, farmhouse kitchen fireplace, stone stairway) while modern additions include a secluded roof terrace offering sun and shade. Behind stone walls and shutters, the downstairs bedrooms offer cool relief in the summer heat.
A tranquil oasis, Paguignan is surrounded by vineyards, rolling wooded hills and secret limestone gorges, making it a paradise for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers as well as an ideal base from which to explore the Minervois and beyond. Spectacular Minerve, the last Cathar stronghold, perched on the craggy confluence of two gorges, is only a few kilometers away, while the world heritage site Canal du Midi is a ten-minute drive away. Other recommended outings include

“a peaceful summer break”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2014

This was a very friendly and comfortable accommodation. There was plenty of space to find solitude for reading, writing, sleeping, etc or to congregate together for social time. The scenery was outstanding and the owners gave lots of good advice about places to visit and walk. We were even treated to our own guided orchid walk and invited to 'apero' with the local villagers.

“Wonderful time!”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2014

We had a really lovely stay - Paguignan is a very peaceful little village, the perfect antidote to the stress of city life! The gite is really cosy and Mr Brook (the owner) is so knowlegeable about the local countryside, walks and wildlife. Wish we were back there now, sipping red wine after a day in the beautiful French countryside. We'll be back!!
