The perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a long drive from the Cote d'Azur and Vie Lavande provided the perfect remedy. Spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean and set in fantastic gardens, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Due to the timing of our visit - mid September - the majority of the flowers had sadly lost their colour but it didn't take much imagination to see how colourful the garden would be in full bloom. The surrounding area is great, with plenty of interesting things to see and places to explore. The ancient town of Minerve is literally minutes away and Carcassonne is only an hour's drive. Languedoc is one of the best wine regions in the world and the wine in the immediate area is especially good. You can buy a bottle for less than £5 that would easily cost twice this amount in the UK. I would recommend hiring bicycles and exploring the local area that way, as the roads are quiet and there are plenty of recognised routes, such as the Canal du Midi. Jeff and Corrine are very attentive and helpful. They are very welcoming and take genuine pride in their villa, providing everything you need for a comfortable stay. If you're a couple or a family looking for a quiet, secluded and comfortable place to stay in one of the most beautiful and picturesque areas of France, Vie Lavande is the perfect choice.

Absolutely georgous

  • 5 of 5

This property will certainly meet your expectations, the photographs are exactly as the villa is. A car is required to get out and about but the walks and views with in the area are something not to be missed. There are many exciting discoveries to be made such as the gorges in minervois and the often seen eagles and hawks flying over the terrain. The couple who own this villa (Jeff and Corinne and not to forget Pops the cat) are extremely welcoming and more than happy to help you where needed. This accommodation will definitely be visited by my family again and I reccommend it to anybody wishing to stay in a beautiful home away from the main tourist areas but still in the easy access of the gorgeous sites to be seen. A must visit is needed.

Ressourcement total

  • 5 of 5

Quel endroit superbe ! La villa est magnifique, spacieuse, lumineuse, bien conçue avec tout le confort possible. Elle est idéalement située, au calme avec une vue imprenable sur la vallée.

Merci à Jeff pour le bon accueil et pour toutes les infos sur la région et spécialement les bons tuyaux de bons restos du coin.

Endroit idéal pour se ressourcer en pleine nature avec de très belles ballades à proximité, notre chien a également beaucoup apprécié de pouvoir gambader en toute liberté.

Et malgré la saison, nous avons même pu profiter de la piscine. Quel bonheur !

Pour l'anecdote, de retour un soir à la villa avec notre bourriche d’huîtres, il nous manquait le couteau à huître. Un coup de fil à Jeff et 5 minutes plus tard nous étions dépannés et pouvions déguster nos huîtres, tranquilles sur la terrasse. Merci Jeff pour votre disponibilité.

En résumé, une excellente adresse que nous retenons assurément.

Que du bonheur !

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très accueillante, confortable et spacieuse.

La cuisine est richement équipée et les bacs à recyclage (bouteilles, cartons ...) mis à disposition sont une excellente idée.

Pour ceux qui ont le courage de sortir de la piscine, il y a des guides pour les randonnées VTT ou pédestres et la région est vraiment très belle. D'ailleurs la vue depuis la terrasse est magnifique.

Tout aussi important, l'accueil du propriétaire, sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse permettent de se sentir vraiment serein pendant son séjour.

Si vous avez besoin de vous ressourcez voici l'endroit idéal !!

La villa porte son nom à ravir, le matin la lavande embaume le lieu.

Tout est parfait le cadre, le calme, la vue, la maison est très bien à tout niveau. En fait il ne manque rien, tout est minutieusement pensé par les propriétaires qui sont très accueillants.

Que dire d'autre ... nous avons trouvé le Paradis

A proximité on trouve toutes commodités et de quoi bien se restaurer sur Minerve au restaurant gastronomique le Chantovent.
