Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Mirepeisset - 3 bedroom Gite with pool

Le Fitou is a wing of an old Winemaker's House with 3 bedrooms and a large pool

The Winemaker's House in Mirepeisset has two 3 bedroom Gites both with swimming pools and is an ideal base for exploring the Languedoc- Roussillon area.

LE FITOU Gite comfortably sleeps 6 and is furnished to a high standard. It has its own private front entrance which opens into a foyer, which leads into the spacious beamed living room with two large windows overlooking the courtyard. There is Wi Fi, Cable TV and a CD Player. Off the living room is a separate laundry room equipped with a washing machine and toilet. Also off the living room is the fully equipped kitchen with oven, hob, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, etc. The glass kitchen door allows in plenty of light as well as leading you out to your private patio and the pool area. Adjoining the living room is a separate dining room with large window overlooking your patio, and the stairs leading to the upper floor. The master bedroom has a large window overlooking the pool and walled garden; the master bedroom is en suite. There are two twin bedrooms, both with windows overlooking the courtyard, and a large shared bathroom.

LE FITOU is tiled throughout the ground floor, has parking facilities on the property with a gate, the windows have curtains and shutters, and is equipped with central heating for chillier months. There is a patio area for your private use, partly covered for shelter, if desired, from the hot sun. There are tables and chairs, a BBQ, sun beds with comfortable cushions and parasols. Linen and towels are included (and special beach towels can also be provided)

Besides your private patio, the entire garden and pool patio surround is also for your use. There are also pool toys and floats.

The swimming pool is a large 5 metre x 11 metre (17 feet x 36 feet), set into a beautiful walled & landscaped provincial garden. The pool & garden are a shared space with the friendly owners who live next door. The owners have a totally separate patio area screened from Le Fitou, but will be seen gardening and maintaining the pool. (We usually try to do this early in the morning or when you have gone off for the day!) As far as swimming and sunbathing go, the same applies…. we tend to use the facilities when you are off doing other things!

About Roger & Jane Hollings

Jane and Roger lived in the UK and bought the Winemaker's House and its two Gites (La Fleurie and Le Fitou) in June 2015 and it is now their permanent home. It fulfils their dream to live in France close to the Med. We have really enjoyed the experience so far, meeting all sorts of interesting and entertaining people; both guests and locals alike.

Roger & Jane Hollings purchased this house in 2015

Why Roger & Jane Hollings chose Narbonne area

The Languedoc felt right for us from the start. Close to the Mediterranean but not overwhelmed by tourists, the area has an incredible and varied mix of beautiful landscapes and an almost limitless choice of things to do and places to visit. Couple this to friendly locals and great food and wine, the decision was easy.

The Winemakers House ticked all the boxes - characterful, in a great location and with an existing Gite business with the potential to develop further.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Acudimos en marzo de 2016 a la zona para ver los fabulosos alrededores del sur de Francia. Tenemos 3 niños y somos muy exigentes con nuestras escasas vacaciones. Y solo puedo decir que fue excelente. Esta ubicado en una localidad tranquila, está limpísimo, los anfitriones-vecinos son encantadores, nos obsequiaron con una primera compra (pan, vino, fiambre, leche, queso, yogurt, etc..) para no preocuparnos al llegar con tener que salir corriendo a comprar y que estuviésemos tranquilos, estaba equipado con toallas, jabón, etc...Cocina totalmente equipada para comer allí si se quiere, piscina preparada para el baño y limpísima (aunque no pudimos usarla pues hacía frío), las camas comodísimas, ....en fin, perfecto. Solo podemos decir gracias, y que seguro que volveremos.

The best gite we have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful French house with lovely owners. We had a fabulous week here, blessed with perfect weather. You can immerse yourself in the French dream, in a village with just the amenities you need and nothing more, with the perfect hosts. Roger and Jane will help with anything you need. The location is ideal for exploring the historically rich Languedoc, having a day at the beach, visiting beautiful towns and enjoying the local cuisine and, of course, the wines!

A perfect week, thank you.

Fabulous family-friendly gite

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (two 7 year old children) and wanted a well equipped, comfortable space with a good pool to spend our two week summer holiday. As the gite slept six we took advantage of inviting some friends and then some family to stay. We wanted a nice environment to relax in by the pool so the kids could play but also be near some areas of interest if we wanted to explore. Le Fitou was the perfect balance of this. We had long lazy days by the gorgeous and generously sized pool and we had many wonderful excursions - suggested by the well-informed owners.

Nothing was too much trouble and Roger and Jane were very happy to provide the extra bed linen required for our various guests in addition to our own requirements. Having them next door proved very helpful as they were on hand to recommend tried and tested restaurants, beaches or places to visit. But most of the time we felt that we had the place to ourselves. The property was very well maintained and had everything we required - dish washer, washing machine etc and a well equipped kitchen. The rooms were generous and nicely decorated and there was plenty of room even when there were six people occupying the Gite. We would definitely recommend this Gite and already have and I expect that we will be back soon for another visit.

Fantastic Fun in Le Fitou!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time at Le Fitou and it as lovely as we remembered. It is a lovely Gite spotlessly clean and very well equipped, with a fabulous pool. It really is a perfect place from which to explore all the area has to offer.

Roger and Jane are the perfect hosts, discreet but always on hand with their recommendations and knowledge of the local area.

Highly recommended and we will definitely be back again!

A lovely gite in a great area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at Le Fitou. The gite was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It has a lovely pool and garden area which is great for relaxing. Roger and Jane were extremely helpful and gave some good advice about where to visit and where to eat. We particularly enjoyed hiring bikes at Paraza and the meal we had at L'O a la Bouche in Le Somail. We will definitely return.

July 2016 - Winemakers House, Mirepeisset

  • 5 of 5

Mirepeisset is a lovely, tranquil and typically French village surrounded by vineyards. It has two charming restaurants and one shop, which doubles as a patisserie . Just perfect for fresh croissants and bread ! The house itself is simply perfect and exceeded our expectations. The decor is tasteful while the room sizes are just right. The swimming pool is wonderful and comes with all the sunloungers you will need for a relaxing day by the pool. The gardens surrounding the houses and swimming pools are lush and colourful and provide shade and a wonderful breeze. I cannot recommend this place enough for those that want a peaceful place to relax for a week or those who want to explore the surrounding countryside, the expanse of white sands on the coast, the tiny hillside villages orbsple the delicious wines and foods of the region. Jane and Roger are excellent hosts and while discrete are on hand with any questions you may have.

Gorgeous gite in beautiful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased that the gorgeous winemaker's house behind the green gates was in fact our holiday home for the next week! We were greeted by owners Roger and Jane with big smiles, a walk-around the property and a glass of rosé while the children splashed in the beautiful pool. We came for a week's holiday with our family to relax and enjoy the sunshine, gorgeous countryside and of course delicious food and wine and we were not disappointed! Le Fitou is beautifully decorated and has everything you need - from a washing machine to an electric whisk. The pool area and garden are a view to behold - the flowers are beautiful thanks to Jane. Le Fitou is brilliantly located two minutes walk from the village shop so we had fresh baguette and croissants each morning and there are also many nice walks and bike rides on your doorstep. Roger and Jane are fantastic hosts and are always there if you need them but also discreet if you would prefer some quiet time. Their welcome pack of food basics was also greatly appreciated so we didn't have to head straight to the supermarket on our first evening. Would definitely recommend!

The Winemaker's House in Mirepeisset has two 3 bedroom Gites both with swimming pools and is an ideal base for exploring the Languedoc- Roussillon area.

The village has a general store providing all your basic needs including fresh bread and croissants and has two restaurants (one open all year round).

Close by is the historic village of Le Somail on the Canal du Midi with several restaurants to chose from (as well as a wonderful old book shop!).

In Ginestas - three kilometres away - you can find a bank, pharmacy and more restaurants.

A large Intermarche super market with 24/7 fuel is only 5 minutes away.

The ancient city of Narbonne is just a 15 km drive. Well worth a visit for its Roman road, cathedral, canal and famous covered market.

Carcassonne is a favourite destination with its old fortified city that has starred in many a film. It is an easy 40 minute drive.

The Mediterranean is only 30-40 minutes away and there are several great beaches within easy reach - Gruissan, Narbonne Plage, La Franqui and Leucate to name but a few.

For the slightly more adventurous there is kayaking in Roquebrun on the River Orb. (This is highly recommended from personal experience) as well as white water rafting in the Pyrenees.

Another must see are the Cathar Castles. Quiberus and Peyrepertuse are two spectacular examples and are an hour or so away.

Let's not forget the wine. Languedoc Roussillon is the biggest wine producing area in France with many famous names - Fitou, Minervois, Corbieres and St Chinian. Mirepeisset has its own domain - Les Herbes Saintes.

Bike rides (bike hire can easily be arranged), horse riding, walking, boat trips on the Canal du Midi are all readily available. A typical comment from our guests is that there is so much to do they will have to come back!
