Description

La Vieille Grange is a lovely 5 bedroom home in the heart of Roquebrun. Once a store for wine belonging to one of the main wine estates of the village is has been refurbished into a beautiful, spacious home with a small detached annexe. The style of the house is reminiscent of a provencal-style farm house - and a rare find in the Languedoc. It has the style and authenticity of "real France" combined with all the modern appliances required for a relaxing holiday for families or groups of friends.

The house comprises a huge lounge and kitchen looking out over the garden and pool with three sets of double doors opening directly onto the garden and terrace. The lounge has a comfortable soft seating area for ten people and a similarly large dining area. The fully-equipped galleried kitchen leads out onto the pool and BBQ area - with seating for ten people to dine al fresco. The kitchen itself contains a dishwasher, electric oven, microwave and fridge/freezer. A washing machine

The other bedrooms in the main house (2x doubles and 1 twin) are all light and airy with calm views of the river and garden. One bedroom leads off the lounge and enjoys its own access to the garden - perfect for older visitors who don't like stairs. The 5th bedroom/bathroom is situated in a small building just outside the garden, next to the gate. There is no heating, nor airco in this room.

Prices include electricity up to 300kWh.

Possible to rent linen (bed, bath & kitchen) for €18,- p.p.

It is fully furnished with a stylish mixture of antique brocante and modern furniture together with up to date comforts. All rooms have heating and air conditioning except the small cottage.

The amenities of the village are close by - shops, tourist information, restaurants, river swimming and canoeing and yet when you close the garden gate you will enter your own oasis of calm and privacy.

La Vieille Grange offers everything you need for a real French holiday in one of France's most beautiful villages.

Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Walk to river swimming in River Orb. 45 minutes Med beaches. Roquebrun is near Beziers, Pezenas, Olargues, Narbonne, Montpellier.Thanks to its warmer climate, a magnificent Jardin Mediterranean has been made in Roquebrun, with an enormous variety of plants from almost every Mediterranean region.

Roquebrun

Perched on a south facing slope over the river Orb, beautiful Roquebrun offers everything you need for an entertaining holiday!The origins of Roquebrun go back to the 9th century when a stronghold was built here to ward off invaders from the south. Nowadays only a part of one of the original towers still reminds of that era. Roquebrun is now better known because of its micro climate (due to the protection from the north wind by the mountains) that permits all sorts of Mediterranean plants and trees to thrive here that usually only grow in more southern regions.In summer the small 600 inhabitant town comes to life and lives up to its reputation of "le petit Nice".Roquebrun is a picturesque old midi village with narrow, winding streets, often without cars. There are a few cafés and restaurants along the river and near the Orb bridge there is a Petit Casino supermarket.At the local Caveau you may get acquainted with the local (AOC Saint Chinian) wines and more pleasant surprises can be found at the many independent domaines.Roquebrun boasts a lovely pebble beach on the river Orb with lots of shaded places and a magnificent view of the old village. A nice place to spend a hot summer day!But Roquebrun is also a starting point for canoes. A number of beautiful and exiting canoe trips are offered through the lovely Orb valley. And of course there is every possibility to go trekking and (mountain)biking.And, of course, the Med itself with its sandy beaches. At only about half an hours drive!

“Near Perfection.”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

We are 6 friends and have spent a summer holiday week together for the last few years in villas in Europe. We were all of the opinion that this villa would take a lot of beating. It is an old house with modern equipment, cooker, American fridge/freezer etc. it has a fantastic garden with lovely swimming pool and areas of sun and shade all through the day. The interior is comfortable and has many thoughtful little touches that make a holiday special and is how we imagined a French villa to be. Roquebrun itself is a small village that has everything we needed, plenty of vineyards, a yummy bakery, 3 or 4 restaurants and bars and a small general shop. All in all it was near perfection.

“Best villa we have ever stayed in .”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2012

We were a group of 10 people of varying ages and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Vieille Grange. The villa has a great location in the centre of Roquebrun but still enjoys total privacy. Everyone was able to have their own space as the rooms are very large, you never felt as if there were 10 people there. Roquebrun is a lovely town and very welcoming to tourists. Thank you for allowing us to have a fabulous holiday in your wonderful villa.

Thank you for your kind review. To give you an update: a (free) wifi network has recently been installed in la Vieille Grange, so internet access is now available.

“Groot comfortabel huis met veel karakter prima geschikt voor een groep van 10 personen”

Reviewed 8 May 2012

La Vielle Grange is rustig gelegen aan een "eigen" oprijlaan in het rustieke dorp Roquebrun met 4 restaurants, 3 terassen, bakker, kleine supermarkt, tabac, botanische tuin, historische kern, kiezelstrand aan de rivier met goede zwemmogelijkheid, kanoverhuur, diverse wijnboeren en volop wandelmogelijkheden. Het hoofdgebouw heeft 4 slaapkamers met alle aangrenzende badkamers, zeer ruime living met openhaard en diverse zithoeken en een grote keuken van alle gemakken voorzien. In een bijgebouw is een vijfde slaapkamer met badkamer. De tuin heeft een royaal zwembad, diverse zitplekken met voldoende tuinmeubilair. Parkeerplaats op eigen terrein en voldoende aanwezig in de buurt. Wij hebben met 10 volwassenen (5 stellen) hier eind april/begin mei een prima week door gebracht. Nog te koud voor het zwembad maar meer van voldoende te doen in de buurt. Wandelen in de wijnvelden en in de bergen van het massief van de Caroux, bezoek aan Beziers, canal de midi met zijn sluizen, Minerve, het strand bij Serignan, wijnboeren bezoeken en uit eten in de vele restaurants in de omgeving en niet te vergeten de markt in St.Chinian. Kortom een heel leuke streek, een prima dorp en een top huis.

Merci beaucoup! Nu ook WIFI in het huis en in plaats van de open haard een efficiente houtkachel.
